“I’m blown away! We are blown away! This is my favourite family photoshoot ever! You have captured our little family SO well, such happy memories and everyone’s personality to a T… Thank you so very much”
….The way they stick their tongue out when concentrating, the gappy tooth grin of your fast growing six year old, the way that they cuddle up to you when you read together, that garish wallpaper that you removed when you renovated, the chickens that used to roam free in your back garden…it is these details that matter, the tiny gestures that are so familiar that they are second nature, the family rituals, routines and the unique combination of personalities that are so wonderfully and utterly unique to you and your family.
And sometimes it is so familiar that you actually don’t see it, not until years later when you pour back over the photos and remember the crazy toddler that is so full of energy or the beautiful blossoming of your tween into teen…
Family photos don’t need to be grandly posed, super dressed up, forced grins and ‘happy family smiles for the camera’, nope… they can be quite simply, you being you in the place that makes you happy.

What shall we wear ...
The most important thing is to be comfortable, if you’re not at ease in your outfit it will show in the photos. Muted / earthy / natural colours work best. Stripes and small patterns are good, bright & bold patterns can jar and jump out of the photo. A big no no are t-shirts with logos and large branding, they date so quickly and really draw your eye in the final photos..
My house is a mess....
Please don’t over tidy your house, a good clean is great but don’t put everything away in cupboards and dress your house for ‘show’, your everydayness of your house speaks volumes about you, promise!
I hate having my photo taken...
SO DO I, I am so with you on this!! But , you know what.. in years to come your children won’t give two hoots about how you felt in front of the camera that day, they will just be grateful to have photos of you and them together.
My style of shooting is easy going, even the most camera shy Dad’s have told me how comfortable they felt during our time together… my aim is for the experience to be as beautiful as the photos you receive, truly… this is so important to me.
Do you come to us...
Yes… I lOVE shooting In Home FamilySessions, I believe your surroundings are important and should be captured. I will also meet you at your ‘Happy Place’, I recently drove to Byron Bay to shoot a family from the UK who were here on holiday and wanted to capture their time together in Australia.
