Photo sessions with me are a walk in the park. Quite literally. My style is all about capturing people being themselves, relaxed and natural. I know fully well how quickly your baby turns into a toddler and how one day you’re getting married and the next you’re celebrating your 10th anniversary. My mission is to catch those fleeting moments and make them last. I would love to meet you and help capture your special moments in photographs that you can treasure for years to come.
I first discuss all the details of the session in a pre-session consultation, over the phone or via email. I am happy to suggest locations that I know will suit your type of session or we can go to a location that is special to you. Most of my sessions are done at an outdoor location but I am happy to come to your home as well. In fact, a session at your home is preferable for intimate maternity sessions as well as sessions with babies up until 6 months of age.
During the session, I will want you to relax and have fun with your partner and/or family and I will make sure that I capture all those precious smiles and hugs and the details in between. I will normally start the session with a chat, so I can get to know you a little and so that you and especially your children get to know me. Aside from having photographed many families with young children and newborn babies, I have three children myself, so I always have songs and games up my sleeve that will get the little ones to relax and enjoy our time together. During the newborn sessions I allow plenty of time for feeding, changing and settling the baby, so you won’t have to feel rushed.
I like to schedule maternity sessions between the 35th and 38th week of pregnancy, however, they can be done earlier, especially if it’s a multiple pregnancy. Newborn sessions are best scheduled for the first two weeks of baby’s life when the baby still has newborn features and can easily be settled into a deep sleep.
I am passionate about tailoring each session to my client, so it best represents them as an individual or a family at that point in time. It makes me incredibly happy to see many come back for more sessions and recommend me to their families and friends (you can read some good words from former clients here). If you are interested in a photography session with me and would like to discuss your vision, please get in touch.
