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 (to print) and low-resolution JPEG’s (for online sharing). 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.
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 … $550
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 in the 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 $50.
Newborns … $550
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 home, or you are welcome to come to me in North Curl Curl. I have a selection of wraps that you can use during the shoot. If I shoot at your home, the session will be more geared to candid family images and relaxed, casual poses of your baby. If you come to me, I will also have a backdrop set up to offer some gently 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 (50+) in colour and the same set also converted to B+W. Within 48 hours of your shoot, you will receive a digital Birth Announcement using some of your images.
Maternity … $300
An outdoor maternity session that can be just for the mum-to-be, or include your partner and siblings. Focusing on the curves and connections at this exciting time. Sessions take approx. 45 minutes and you will receive all the best edited digital images (30+) in colour and the same set also converted to B+W. Gorgeous maternity gowns available for use during your session if required. Best booked for 32-37 weeks, but this is completely up to you. Save $100 off your newborn session if booked together.
Children … $300
Three different types of session available depending on age. You will receive all the best edited digital images (30+) in colour and the same set converted to B+W. Sessions available Monday – Friday (including school holidays). One photo with the parents is included if you wish.
6-9 month old ‘sitter’ session … a gorgeous session held in my home studio using natural light, a white background and a few carefully selected props. I have a range of simple white bodysuits to wear so the focus can be purely on the features and expressions of your child. We finish with a splash in my mini-clawfoot bath.
10-13 month old Cake Smash … perfect to celebrate the one year milestone with sessions including a portrait shoot, a professionally made cake, outfits, props and a clean up bubble bath in my mini-clawfoot bath. These session are $400, 40+ colour images are provided and a wonderful digital collage (with a framed copy available for order).
any age outdoor sessions … a great way of capturing your child/children to remember their current stage while we explore a favourite outdoor location. Happy to work with you on a theme or style that you have in mind.

All packages include a pre-wedding consultation, an online ‘highlights slideshow’ within 48 hours, and digital images in both colour and B+W. Images can be downloaded both as high-resolution (for printing) and low-resolution (for online sharing). 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 $1,600 for 4 hours coverage.

Family events and community photography …

I can quote on christenings, birthday parties and family celebrations. Packages start at $500 for 2 hours coverage and you will receive all the best edited digital images in both 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.
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’s (for printing) and low-resolution JPEG’s (for online sharing), 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.
Safety first …
Working with babies and children, my focus is always on safety. I maintain current flu and whooping cough vaccinations. All props, backdrops, wraps, clothes, blankets etc are fully cleaned between sessions. Visitors to my home studio are temperature checked on arrival and hand sanitiser is used throughout your session. My Working with Children check number is WWC0810184E and is valid until 2026.
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, 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. You can receive the certificate as either a digital version via email, or have a printed version sent via the post or to collect.
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. 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 and I will write this into your contract.
