Honest portraits and real memories. These are the two most important things to me when capturing the essence of your family. Family sessions take place in a location of your own choice but I will you in on a little secret … I generally encourage you to choose your own home for part, if not all of your family photography session. And this is for one simple reason. Home is where families begin. Where you are understood and memories are created. it’s a feeling, not a place.
As a Mum with a family of my own, I cannot think of a better place to begin our journey.
“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on camera is captured forever… it remember’ s little things, long after you have forgotten everything”
A family portrait really is a picture that speaks a thousand words. It will celebrate those quirks and bonds that are unique to your family and in years to come it will serve as a distant memory. Part of the fun for you and for me is tailoring the photo shoot to suit your family. I can take your family portrait in my studio or outdoors in a setting of your choice. Vibrant portrait photoshoot, or something raw and intimate in black and white, or anything in between. Throughout the portrait photography session, I aim to make each member of your family feel comftable.
Children are unpredictable… so it is my job to be ready for anything! A lot of parents can get frustrated if their session doesn’t quite go as planned, but the wonderful thing is that those moments, however in between all the tantrums and chaos, are beautiful memories and pictures that I can capture. The one thing I ask of parents is to relax and enjoy it; I will do all the hard work! Children match your energy, so if you are having fun & showing them how much you love them they will show you the same in return. Positive energy will bring out the happiness and laughter in everyone which will provide unforgettable moments.
