I’m passionate about photography and want families to love their experience with me. That’s why my business style is based on making sure our sessions are unhurried and my packages are all inclusive. The idea is that I work with you to have an enjoyable, relaxed photo shoot, then you get to keep all the best edited digital images. You aren’t rushed through with another family waiting behind you for their turn. You aren’t required to come back for a hard sell to buy expensive wall art. There are no complex packages where you have to select a set number of images or products. Unhurried. All inclusive. All about you.
The images will be provided to you in three formats;
- Online gallery – a secure, online gallery of digital files in both high-resolution (to print) and low-resolution (for online sharing). You can freely download, share and print all of your images.
- Personal app – I’ll create your own personal app that allows easy viewing of your photos on your mobile and tablet. This 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.
All three formats can be easily shared with family and friends.

Families … $650
Includes a 60 – 90 minute photo shoot either in your home or a favourite outdoor location. 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 … $650
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 use natural light and no hard props (eg I don’t pose babies in buckets or bowls etc). 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 session and also a gorgeous woven Moses basket.
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 six months old. I am guided by your baby and will leave lots of time to allow you to feed and settle them as needed, so sessions can take between 2-3 hours. 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, and I can arrange prints if you would like to post them to family and friends.
Maternity … $400
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.

I have a range of simple white bodysuits and outfits to wear so the focus can be purely on the features and expressions of your child.

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 $500 for 2 hours coverage and you will receive all the best edited digital images in an online gallery for families and friends to download, share and print.
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.
Safety first …
Working with babies and children, my focus is always on safety. I maintain current flu and whooping cough vaccinations and everyone in my home is fully vaccinated against Covid-19. All props, backdrops, wraps, clothes, blankets etc are thoroughly cleaned between sessions. My Working with Children check number is WWC0810184E and is valid until 2026.
Printing, canvases and photo albums …
I’m passionate about getting your images off your computer and into your home so I have partnered with some Australian companies to provide great quality products that can be ordered directly from your online gallery. Professional printing of your images really does make a significant difference to the quality and longevity of your photos. Along with professional prints and enlargements, I have a few great products that make gorgeous displays, keepsakes or gifts and all are delivered straight to your address.
Retainer fee …
To secure your booking, a non-refundable retainer fee will be required. In the case that we need to reschedule your booking due to sickness or bad weather, the fee 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 fee will be forfeited to cover the cake cost. Fees are fully refundable if your session is unable to go ahead due to any NSW Public Health Orders in place for Covid-19.
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 hard copy, printed version sent via the post or to collect.
