I love being able to tell my clients stories, being able to freeze a single moment in time, all through the power of a photograph! I have structured my photography sessions around fun, avoiding any awkwardness or discomfort and ensuring you enjoy yourselves – yes, even dads will have a blast!

You will find no cheesy smiles or unnatural poses here. I specialise in seeking out gorgeous light and calming spaces to set the scene for your spontaneous connections and beautiful moments for In-Home, Studio, Outdoors and Weddings. This is why my clients choose me to document these important chapters in their lives. They want something different, fun, authentic, unique, honest, natural, unforgettable and above all, beautiful images which tell their exclusive story! Let’s book you in!

STEP 1 – Let’s start by getting your details set up in my booking system. Filling out the CONTACT FORM will allow you to let me know if there’s a set date or month that you are wishing to schedule your session. We can also set up a free phone consult to go over an exact date and time, chat about which locations appeal to you (check out the BLOG for some inspiration) and I can answer any questions you might have.

STEP 2 – Once we’ve had your pre-session consultation, you’ll be required to pay a $200 booking retainer which will secure your session for that date and time. You will receive a detailed Prep Guide from me with all the helpful info on preparing for your session, what to wear tips, what to pack on the day and a full price list.

STEP 3 – The day before your session, I will be in touch for final confirmation with a map of our location and making sure everyone is feeling well. On the day of your session, I want you to come away from it feeling so high on love because you’ve just spent a couple of hours enjoying some unplugged, joyous, quality time together laughing, playing games and cuddling. You will be encouraged to connect, play games, marvel at tiny perfect details and shower each other in LOVE. Before heading home, I will give you a copy of our product guide so that you can start thinking about how and where you would like to display your photos.

STEP 4 – Around 2 weeks after your session, you will receive an emailed link to your online image gallery. From there, you will be able to scroll through and relive all of the wonderful memories from that day. You can select which images and artwork you would like to purchase from the comfort of your own home. If you need assistance making the right choices, I offer the extra service of a Zoom call to assist you in making the right wall art or album selections for your images. Payment plans are also available. Artwork orders take roughly 4 weeks to produce at our Australian professional print labs.

STEP 5 – When your purchased artwork is ready, you’ll be able to collect it from our Ingleburn studio. Alternatively, we can deliver it to you anywhere in Sydney for a flat $20 fee. Our printed products are perfectly calibrated to my screen and have been created right here in Australia for superb craftsmanship. These items will be a beautiful and timeless addition to your home and bring you and your family a lifetime of happiness!
