Your children's memories are built on the adventures, the whispers, the giggles, the moments.
I want to get to know you as a family, and photograph all the little details of who you are together that will be reminders of all your favorite memories.
Lifestyle family sessions can be anything you want them to be - at home in your own curated chaos, or out on the beach where your wildlings can run free. An adventure through a forest, a trip out on the family boat. I'm here to help you plan a session that will best encompass who you are as a family, to make memories for you to keep forever.
No ideas are too big or too small, and if you don't have any, I have a bucket full to share with you!
There's no better time than now! Consider what kind of photos you're dreaming of and how the season will relate. If you're wanting beach sunset memories in cute dresses, it may be better to wait for warmer months. If you're wanting in home cuddly memories baking together in the kitchen, any time of year will work. We can discuss options and your dreams in your consultation and book for the right time, but get in touch now to get the ball rolling so you don't miss out on availability.
My brand of photography is all about capturing true connections of real people. It all begins with our consultation, getting to know your family and planning an adventure that gets every member of the family excited. The key importance is having every family member involved in the whole process, from booking to frame selection. I won't be asking the kids to stand and smile at the camera, but I will be there prompting interactions that will inspire honest connections in your family. Ultimately, your kids (and unwilling partner) remain your responsibility, but I've never had trouble getting everyone engaged and having fun. You'll just be out on an adventure with your family, having a laugh and lots of cuddles. It's fun, promise!
New Zealand weather is pretty hard to predict, but mostly it's kind of awesome! I'll be in touch on the day of your shoot and we'll make a decision 3 hours before your shoot time. If we do need to reschedule due to weather it's no problem, we'll do that at no extra cost to you. However, don't be afraid of some drama in winds and clouds, they can create the most incredible backdrops to photograph in!
As many as you like, so long as I know about each person before the time. During our consultation we'll discuss who will be there on the day. I do have a strict policy that you don't bring with any family members not being photographed as this can be distracting for you as a family and the deep connections I aim to photograph are harder to achieve.
