home portfolio session details policies & pricing about contact

INITIAL CONSULTATION: We'll discuss our hopes and vision for the photoshoot in an initial phone call so that together we can design a successful experience.

PHOTOSHOOT: The photoshoot typically takes between 90 minutes to 2 hours and includes necessary breaks to ensure your child is kept relaxed and happy. Plenty of time is allowed for feeding, changing and getting to know each other. Where possible, I prefer to use natural lighting and will work with you to determine a location that will result in the most successful images. The session may include shooting inside your home or an outdoor location such as a backyard or nearby park.

WHAT TO WEAR: Generally comfortable clothing works best but we can discuss any specific interests you have. As a rule of thumb, it's best to avoid clothing with prominent logos and for family portraits, where possible, to avoid colors that will clash. For additional guidelines on clothing and other details please see preparing for a photoshoot.

PHILOSOPHY: I believe that the best portraits come from a genuine connection and trust between the subject and the photographer. With children in particular, I find that a playful approach and familiar surroundings help establish this connection quickly. I look forward to giving you and your family images you will treasure.
