Canberra Photographer

It all started on the day 

I received the call

 

Without even realising, they managed to talk me off a ledge. Talking to them was like I had a friend.

It was the first time in a long time, in a very long time that I didn't feel totally alone.

Then coming into the studio, we were greeted like lifelong friends. the way every single person in the studio totally embraced my little family, my extremely wild little girl, my very quiet teen, my special little babe and my total awkwardness.

Just wanted to say thank you for being some of the most amazing people I have ever met. Thank you for my beautiful photos.

Thank you for embracing the different personalities of my family.

- Kelly

I'm on a budget, do you offer payment plans?
Yes! No Interest Payment Plans are available via a PayRight. Let’s discuss your options early in the process so there is transparency for all parties involved. I recommend a Little Moments Session if this is the case!

Don't worry about making a commitment right now! Just wait until your exciting portrait reveal, and then you can decide what's best for you. And remember, I'm here to guide you in your choice. We'll work together to create a package that suits your needs. But, fair warning – my clients fall in love with their photos and can't help but choose them all! So, get ready for an amazing experience and some truly unforgettable memories.

Do I have to choose my package when I book?

No! I want you to see your photos before I help you choose your images and package. I don’t require the purchase of a predefined “collection” or “package”, and I certainly don’t make you choose your package upfront. This gives you the freedom and flexibility to choose how you wish to invest in your memories.

How Many Images Will I Get To See?

Depending on your session choice, I'll create loads of variety, and as many images to choose from as possible without making it an arduous process for you.

A fully customised, immersive Masterpiece Portrait session with at least three family members  (two parents and a child or one parent and two children) produces 70+ photos.

Your shorter Little Moments Sessions produce 40+ photos.

When will I choose and pay for my package?

Don't worry about making any commitment before deciding to book! Just wait until your exciting portrait reveal, and then you can decide what's best for you, when you can see your family in the photos.

And remember, I'm here to guide you in your choice. We'll work together to create a package that suits your needs. But, fair warning – my clients fall in love with their photos and can't help but choose them all! So, get ready for an amazing experience and some truly unforgettable memories.

How Long Will My Session Go For?

Your session time will depend on what session type you’ve booked. I am also very baby and child-led, and will follow their lead - as long as they are happy and willing!

  • Family Masterpiece Sessions are approximately 1 hour
  • In-Studio Newborn Masterpiece Sessions are approximately 2-3 hours
  • Extended Family Masterpiece Sessions are approximately 1-1.5 hours
  • Little Moments Sessions are 20 minutes
  • In Studio Little Moments Sessions are approximately 15-30 minutes
  • Maternity and First Birthday Masterpiece sessions 30-45 minutes

What Is Required To Book My Session?

All sessions require a non-refundable session fee to take your booking. This is your session booking fee and is separate from your package purchase.

After your session, you’ll buy the photos you love, in a format that works for your family.

Little Moments Mini Session fees are $100
Masterpiece Portrait Session fees are $200

How Long Will It Take To See My Photos?

I will book you in for your ordering session at the conclusion of your photo session. This will depend on your availability and mine, but typically my clients have their photo reveal approximately 1-2 weeks after the session date.

What Should I Wear To My Session?

While it might feel easiest to go out and buy new outfits for everyone, there’s no need to – coordinating your outfits from the clothes you have in your wardrobe is perfectly acceptable. And they don’t have to be designer clothes!

The goal with your clothes is to ensure that they complement and aren’t distracting. Wear clothes that flatter your body and that make you feel comfortable and that you know your kids will be okay in.

For your Maternity & Studio Sessions, I have a large client wardrobe of flattering outfits for the whole family, and everything needed for babies.

When you book, you'll receive a comprehensive PDF guide on how to choose what to wear. I'm also here to assist with the process as well and will talk you through the choices!

What If My Children Are Shy And Need Time To Warm Up?

I am very good at working with children with all sorts of attention spans, temperaments and energy levels. I'll always work to get the best out of your children whatever their mood. Your photo sessions is child-led with a focus on play, which works well for family members who are reluctant to have their photos taken. Sometimes it can take up to 5-15 minutes for children to appropriately warm up to someone they’ve just met but I'm very good at connecting with kids and helping them to relax.

I Want Photos Of Us All Looking and Smiling For The Camera, Can You Do This?

Absolutely, in every session, it is my goal to get photos of you looking and smiling at the camera as well as playful and interactive shots. However, if you’re more set on these traditional-looking photos, I may not be the right fit for you. My style of photography is to capture genuine, authentic magic moments, through a relaxed play-based directed manner and having you interacting with each other and your environment.

What Is The Best Location For My Photo Session?

My studio is located in Dunlop. I have a number of locations already scouted in Canberra, to suit a variety of needs. I'm constantly on the lookout for unique, special and beautiful locations that factor in good lighting and are tactile so that kids can explore and play easily. I have a range of locations that I will suggest after consultation with you, based on your personal aesthetic and vision.  If a particular image of mine resonates with you, let me know, as certain images have been taken at certain locations and times of year.

What Time Is The Best For An Outside Session?

Your on location session will be booked for 1-2 hours before the sun sets. Why? Because that’s when the lighting is soft, flattering and golden. The sun is low in the sky, which means there are no harsh shadows on people’s faces and we can get that gorgeous warm glow that will make your photos look magical. Morning Sessions are also available and will be booked for 1-2 hrs after the sun has risen.

What Is The Best Time For A Maternity And Newborn Session?

For your comfort and mobility, I recommend your maternity shoot be at your 30-35 week mark.

For newborn sessions, you have a choice between a posed or lifestyle look or a blend of both. I recommend your baby be between 1-3 weeks if your preference is more posed or up to 6 weeks of age if you’re looking for a more lifestyle look.

Newborn Masterpiece sessions are perfect for those who'd like to take their time and make sure I capture sleeping, very posed photos. Perfect for babies up to 3 months because I allow for plenty of time to keep baby settled and happy.

Little Moments Sessions are suitable for babies from birth, through to 12 months and beyond

What Are Your Rescheduling Policies?

Check out my terms and conditions regarding rescheduling to be across all of the details. I will absolutely accommodate you in the instance of genuine need - ie sickness. I do ask that you communicate with me so I'm able to accomodate your needs.

Weather

I know you’ve got everything crossed for good weather on the day of your session, however, I can’t control the weather. I can only read the forecast and make decisions based on that information. I have seen skies clear on rainy days and thunderstorms come out of nowhere, therefore I will make a call on whether we need to reschedule your session at the last possible moment. We may end up changing the location to work around the weather.

Little Moments

Portrait Sessions

Would you prefer a shorter session? Would you prefer to let go of all the detail and leave it to me to capture you in a real life, relaxed and natural manner?  Would you like to be able to choose your top few stand-out images from your session? This is perfect for those who want a short and sweet session, but don’t want to compromise on the quality of the finished product.

These sessions are designed to be short, playful and relaxed. Short in length, they're perfect for families who desire minimal design choices and planning. Available on location and in the studio. The perfect experience to capture those little magic moments between you and your family.
