Here are a few...
Where do we meet?
When you're thinking of having your family photos in Perth, the options are almost endless, but I think the best photos are taken where you feel happy. The beach, the forest, the park, a field of flowers, or a comfy chair in your home all make for beautiful photos. Abundant light makes for soft pictures, and sunrise and sunset give that golden glow.
What time should we do the shoot?
There are two good answers to this question:
From a photographer’s point of view, I love to shoot at sunrise and sunset, and the time around those. That may mean very early starts to catch the first rays, or late endings to get the golden light as the sun goes down.
From the point of view of little ones, your shoot is always easiest and best when everyone is well-fed and well-rested. We can always find a perfect spot where the light falls softly in the middle of the day.
Many of the photos you see here have been taken at all hours of the day - so one thing is for sure...Perth family photos are always pretty.
What should I wear?
To create beautiful family photos in which you all look and feel your best, it’s worth giving a little thought to your photo shoot wardrobe. What clothes do you feel good in?
I suggest choosing something timeless, without logos or prints. If you are having a family portrait, planning a palette that fits together makes your photos look cohesive. Think co-ordinating, rather than matching. I love the way a range of pastel clothing looks in photos. We can always chat through your preferences before your photo session anyway.
Do I have to bring props to the shoot?
As I love natural photos best, I generally don’t use props in my shoots, but if there is something you would really love to have in your photos, feel free to bring it along!
Should I do hair and make-up?
Looking and feeling your best on the day of the shoot definitely makes you feel more confident, which shines through in your family photos. It’s not necessary to get your hair and make-up done professionally, but taking the extra care really makes a difference to your photos in the end.
How long will it take to get your photos?
After your session, you can’t wait to see some photos, I know! That’s why I’m a real believer in getting your photos to you as quickly as I can. Your online album, with carefully edited images will be ready within two weeks of your session. If you are from out of Perth, and heading back soon, I will prioritise your session so you get it almost immediately.
How many images do I get?
You'll get all the good photos from the session - from experience, during an hour, there are at least 60 great photos, and sometimes more. They'll be a mix of candid and posed photos, portraits and group shots, and maybe even some surprise moments that'll make you laugh.
How much is a family photo session?
I charge a once-off, upfront amount to photograph your family
