With my business, my aim is to make the packages simple and inclusive. The idea is that I work with you to have an enjoyable photo shoot, then you get to keep all the best edited digital images. There is no hard sell to buy expensive prints, or complex packages to choose from.
The images will be provided to you in three formats;
- Online gallery – a password protected, secure online gallery of high-resolution JPEG’s. You can freely download all the images, share them with family and friends, and order prints, canvases and albums direct from your gallery.
- Personal app – I’ll create your own personal app that allows easy viewing of your photos on your mobile and tablet. This can be shared with family and friends, and means you will always have your photos on hand.
- Slideshow – I will choose highlights from your shoot and make a video slideshow, set to music. This is a great way to share your session with others, by posting on social media or sending the link by email.
Please contact me if you would like a copy of my Welcome Guide for any of my sessions listed below. They have lots of information about what is included and examples of my style of photography.

Families … $480
Includes a 60 – 90 minute photo shoot either in your home or a favourite outdoor area. For outdoor shoots, I prefer to make the most of the beautiful, soft light either early in the morning or late afternoon. We have lots of gorgeous places to use as backdrops on the Northern Beaches, and you can either name a place that has special significance for your family, or I can make some suggestions. My aim for family sessions is to keep them relaxed and fun, while capturing the connection between you all. You will receive all the best edited digital images (60+) in colour and the same set also converted to B+W. I happily welcome extended families, but there will be an additional fee of $80.
Newborns … $480
I offer a mix of candid images of your family, as well as gently posed images of your new baby. My posed shots use a simple, organic style in mostly neutral colours so the focus can really be on capturing all the features of your new baby. I aim to show the love, emotion and connection between all the members of your family, so siblings are definitely welcome. I can either come to your house, or you are welcome to come to me in North Curl Curl. I have a selection of blankets, wraps and outfits that you can borrow for the shoot. If I shoot at your house, the session will be more geared to candid family images and relaxed, casual poses of your baby. If we shoot at my house, I will have a backdrop set up to offer more posed shots as well.
Newborn sessions are best held in the first few weeks while your baby is more sleepy and snuggly, but I also welcome babies up to a few months old. I am guided by your baby and will leave lots of time to allow you to feed and settle them as needed. The sessions can take between 2-3 hours and you will receive all the best edited digital images (40+) in colour and the same set also converted to B+W. The day after your shoot, you will receive a digital Birth Announcement using some of your images.
I would love to work with you to see what sort of package and coverage you require to best capture your wedding day. All packages include a pre-wedding consultation, an engagement shoot, an online ‘highlights slideshow’ within 48 hours, and high resolution digital images in both colour and B+W. Your images will be provided in a secure, online gallery for you to download, share with family and friends, and order prints directly. You also receive a personal app of wedding highlights for you and your guests to easily view on phones and tablets. I can work with you to produce a beautiful wedding album and arrange to have it professionally printed. I’m a proud supporter of marriage equality and welcome enquiries from all couples. Packages start at $1,200 for 4 hours coverage.
Family events and community photography …
Please feel free to contact me with details of any queries and I will tailor a package and provide a quote specific to your needs. I can quote on christenings, birthday parties and family celebrations. Packages start at $400 for 2 hours coverage and you will receive all the best edited digital images in colour and B+W to download, share and print. I also cover some local sporting events and work with local schools on a range of projects.
Cake smash + splash … $350
Includes a 60 minute photo shoot to celebrate your baby’s one year birthday. This includes a portrait session while your child is still neat and clean, then we let them run riot with a birthday cake, then splash in a mini clawfoot bubble bath to clean up at the end.
Everything is included, so all you need to do is turn up. I have a selection of outfits and props that you are welcome to borrow during the session and a professionally made cake will also be provided. You are more than welcome to bring your own cake if you have something specific in mind, and I will deduct $50 from the cost of your session. You will receive 35+ digital images in colour. Sessions available Monday – Friday only.
I also photograph Cake Smashes for Mother’s Group first birthday parties. Loads of fun and chaos, but a milestone to celebrate after your year together. I take individual family and child photos, group photos of the children and parents, and candid photos as the children work through their cakes. Generally held in a park and you supply the cakes. Available weekends as well. The cost is $400.
Children’s mini-sessions … $200
A great way of capturing your child/children to remember their current stage. Includes a 40 minute shoot either at your house, a favourite outdoor location or a studio style shoot in North Curl Curl. Happy to work with you on a theme or style that you have in mind. You will receive 20+ digital images in colour and the same set converted to B+W. Sessions available Monday – Friday only (including school holidays).
Welcome Guides …
For each type of photography session I have a Welcome Guide filled with details of all the inclusions and examples of my style of photography. Please get in touch if you would like me to send you a copy.
Your online gallery and personal app …
I have partnered with a great company to provide stunning online galleries to display your photos. You can download your high-resolution JPEG images, watch a slideshow, choose favourites, share with family and friends, and even order products direct from your gallery. You will also receive a personal app that has up to 100 photos from your shoot. This way, you aways have the images with you on your phone or tablet. You can also share the app with family and friends … it’s like a modern version of grandma’s brag book.
Printing, canvases and photo albums …
Professional printing of your images really does make a significant difference to the quality and longevity of your photos. I have set up my online galleries so you are able to view different print sizes and prices, and then order them direct from your gallery. They will be printed in a professional lab on archival quality paper and shipped direct to your address. From your online gallery you are also able to order canvases that come ready to hang. I can also create a custom made photo album from the photos in your gallery. This is a beautiful 20 page hardcover album, with options for different sizes, layouts and covers.
To secure your booking, a non-refundable deposit will be required. In the case that we need to reschedule your booking due to bad weather or sickness, the deposit can be transferred to any session within the next 12 months. For cake smash sessions, if I have already placed the order for your cake, $50 from your deposit will be forfeited to cover the cake cost.
Gift certificates …
Available for either a set dollar amount or for a certain package. Valid for twelve months. You can receive the certificate as either a digital version via email, or have a printed version sent via the post.
For people to see the style and range of images I capture, I use social media as a marketing tool for my business. I would love to use a few favourites from each shoot to showcase my work, or to use for marketing purposes. No surnames are used in the posts, but you are free to tag or share any posts. If you would prefer not to have your images shared, this is not a problem, just let me know.
