Our journey together starts with a simple 15 minute conversation to find out what your goals are and to make sure I'm the right photographer for you.
You then confirm your booking by paying a non-refundable session fee that covers my time, your pre-session consultation, photography and the preparation of your online gallery.
I offer a signature half day session, 4-5 hours to document beautifully honest moments of a real morning or afternoon in your life.
What's your favourite thing to do together? Which daily routine do you cherish and would like to remember forever?
Digital files and printed products are purchased separately once you’ve viewed your photos.
Your investment starts at $950.
A: It is a moment-driven style of photography that is based on the principles of photojournalism. I don‘t direct or pose you, I photograph you going about your day like you normally would. You don’t need to tidy up, have your house look perfect or even dress up for the photos. These photos are about your real, everyday life.
A: Far from it. There is such beauty and poetry in the mundane. I understand, it's hard for me to see it in my own life when I'm in the thick of it. Let me show you wonderful an ordinary day in your life actually is.
A: Just send me an email and we'll schedule a chat to make sure we are a good fit. You then pay a non-refundable retainer to secure your date.
A: Yes, if you request them, but in a candid, documentary style. No cringey poses, I promise.
A: I do edit the photos to ensure there's a consistency to the collection as well as getting them ready to print. However, as this is photography of real life, I don't photoshop things in or out.
