"DAY IN THE LIFE" SESSION

"The days are long but the years are short" Gretchen Rubin.

You will never have this day with your children again.  Tomorrow they'll be a little older than they were today.  This day is a gift.  Just breathe, notice their faces and little feet.  Pay attention.  Enjoy today, it will be over before you know it.

Everyone photographs the important events like Birthdays, Christmas and holidays however photographing your everyday life is just as significant.  Everyday normal activities for families once photographed become time capsules in your family's life.

Documenting little details of your everyday routines becomes a celebration of who you are.  These photographs represent a snapshot in time, the story of your life and serve as a piece of your family's history.

I'm a Mum of a teenager and a tween and I love stories.  Having a camera in my hand has been an amazing way to document and preserve my own family history, the heartfelt, messy, real stories of our life together.  I love to capture real life moments that celebrates the "Gift of the Ordinary Day".

 

I would love to photograph your family's story and capture authentic, heartfelt and timeless memories.

 

A "Day in the Life" documentary session can either be two, three or four hours.

 

The greatest  legacy we can leave our children are portraits of the beautiful life we have lived with them.

FAMILY PORTRAIT SESSION

A family portrait is one of the most valuable things you can have in your home.  While your life changes around you, it's nice to have a permanent reminder of your family at a specific time in your lives.  You want a family portrait that is capable of lasting generations to come that shows warmth and love of your family.

The best time to take a family portrait is always now.  Remember that a family portrait is not a once in a life time event.  Families are changing all the time and our children grow up before our very eyes.  One minute they are off to kindy and primary school and then suddenly your teenagers can be entering adulthood and move out of home to travel the world.  Time doesn't stand still for anyone and capturing your family as they are right now will be part of your unique family history.

Having a family portrait session is a great way to capture your whole family and individual portraits of your family members.

 

Investing in custom framing and printing of your art pieces to hang in your home will be far more valuable than any digital files on a USB sitting in a drawer somewhere.  Having framed portraits displayed on the walls of your home is a treasured gift for your entire family.

Family portrait sessions take place 1.5 hours before sunset during golden hour which is the most beautiful light to photograph your family in.  These sessions take approximately one hour.

Get in touch if you would like to book a family portrait session.

HEIRLOOM ALBUMS & PRINTS

It is said that whilst this generation of children are the most photographed, they will not have any photos to look back on.  There is a false sense of security that every moment of their lives are being documented.  In reality, there are lots of digital photos that are buried in phones and computers that you may not have access to in years to come as technology changes.  I'm passionate about offering beautiful Handcrafted Heirloom albums and prints so that your family memories can be passed down from generation to generation.

WORKSHOPS & TUITION

ULTRA BEGINNERS PHOTO WORKSHOP FOR MUMS

Imagine if you could take beautiful photos of your kids that reflect their unique personality and images that you'll treasure forever.

Did you buy a fancy camera to take great pictures of your family only to find your photos don't look as amazing as you had hoped for?

Would you like to know what those other dials on your fancy camera are and learn the tips and tricks to taking better photos of your family and everyday life?  Whether you have a fancy DSLR camera or a compact point and shoot camera, you'll learn how to use those other automatic settings" on your camera.

During the workshop you will learn:-

  • How to get off "automatic" mode and learn how to use the creative modes on your camera using aperture priority and shutter speed priority.

  • How to get those nice blurry backgrounds for your portraits.

  • How to freeze the action when your kids are running around.

  • The best composition tips and tricks to make your images stand out.

  • How to find the best light to place your subject in.

The Ultra Beginners Photo Workshop runs for 3 hours and is ideal for Mums who have a camera and are stuck on "auto" mode.  Class sizes are intimate with 4-6 participants so that you get a personal learning experience and there's plenty of time for questions.

Get on a wait list for the next workshop.  

 

If you would like to get your own group of

friends together for a workshop get in touch.  

PRIVATE ONE ON ONE TUITION

This is perfect if you want personal 1:1 time with me to work out how to use your new camera and prefer to have a lesson tailored to your learning needs rather than in a group workshop.  It is a two hour session where you will have a personalized learning experience.  Whether you would like to know how to use the "creative modes" on your camera for beautiful portraits or getting better photos of the action at your kids weekend sports.

If you already have a basic understanding of your camera and would like to learn how to use the fully manual mode on your camera to have more control over your photography then private tuition is a great way to advance your skills.

You will be able to walk away more confident in your ability to capture your beautiful family memories.
