families

Every time I go home to visit my parents I inevitably end up poring over old photo albums. I’m totally hooked in by what my parents looked like, the outfits they chose for my brother and I, and a whole life I was too young to remember. Photos are an incredible window into the past. It’s one of the main reasons I love photographing: you’re capturing and creating memories for future generations. 

Scroll down for some favourite examples of my work. 

My style is natural and documentary-like. Glamour photos aren’t my bag. I often find that people who normally hate having their photo taken like my unobtrusive approach. What I really love are those special little moments that you can’t stage. In the age of the iPhone, it’s a really nice thing to have some quality, special photos to share with your loved ones.

~ PRICING ~
I offer 4 different packages – 2 for families, 1 for newborns, & also a special package deal for maternity + newborn photos.

~ Family Package ~
Session (approx. 60 mins) + 40-50 x fully edited photos = $350

~ Mini Family Package ~
Session (approx 30 mins) + min 20 fully edited photos = $250

~ Newborn Package ~
Session (approx. 30-40 mins) + min 20 fully edited photos = $250

~ Maternity + Newborn Package ~
2 x sessions (each approx. 30-40 mins) + min 15 maternity photos & min 20 newborn photos = $350

What you get: Me and my gear for the time specified in your package. I find that kids tend to get a bit tired if we try to push it any longer than 45-60 mins. But I work fast! You can choose the location (or I can suggest somewhere), so long as it’s roughly within an hour of driving from Melbourne. I prefer to work outdoors in natural light – parks/gardens are my preference. Your final photo files will be posted to you via Express Post on a USB. I work towards delivering them to you to within a week after the shoot.  I’m pretty flexible, and I’m happy to tailor a package specifically for your needs.

Delivery: Smaller “internet friendly” sized photos delivered via Dropbox, larger print-quality files delivered on USB.

** each blog post has a key selection of photos from the session, not all the photos provided to the client **

BIRTHDAY PARTIES!
I also do parties. It’s a great way to kill two birds with one stone – marking a special occasion and also getting a collection of wonderful family snaps. The best bit is it leaves you to enjoy the day with your loved ones, without worrying about having to take photos. Please get in touch with me for a tailored quote.

Do I provide access to all the original RAW files? The short answer is, unfortunately, no. A lot of time goes into carefully selecting and editing the chosen photos to provide you with the final suite. Sharing the original files is kind of like showing a half-written manuscript – it’s not a product I would be proud for you to see. This is standard practice for photographers. You just have to trust I’ve chosen the best selection from our session, and have lovingly given them the royal treatment in post-processing.

~ Although I’m based in Melbourne, I’m often in Canberra and Sydney visiting family. If you’re in either city and keen for some photos, get in touch and we’ll see what we can work out! ~
