I specialise in family photography (celebrations, newborns, children, family and maternity sessions) and corporate + community event photography .
The images will be provided to you in three formats that can be easily shared with others;
1. Online gallery
A secure, online gallery of digital files in both high-resolution (to print) and low-resolution (for online sharing). My sessions are all inclusive, which means I include all the best, edited images and you can freely download, share and print ALL of your images. You don’t have to choose a set number of images and then pay for the extras.
2. Slideshow *
I will choose photo highlights from your session and make a video slideshow, set to music.
3. Personal app *
I’ll create your own personal app that allows easy viewing of your photos and slideshow on your mobile and tablet. This means you will always have your photos on hand.
* the personal app and slideshow are not included for mini-sessions, corporate + community events.
Family celebrations …
I cover family events such as christenings, birthday parties, engagement parties, anniversaries and any type of family celebration. You can focus on your guests, knowing that I’ll be there to capture all the moments, both big and small. There is a minimum of 2 hours coverage which is $600, then $150 for each extra hour.
I also love to be wrapped up in the excitement and emotion of weddings, and offer coverage for intimate weddings and elopements. Get in touch and we can work out exactly the coverage you need for your day and I can provide you with a quote.
Newborns … $700
I offer a mix of candid images of your family, as well as gently posed images 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 and blankets 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 receive 50+ colour images in your online gallery, 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.
Children … $400/$550
Three different types of session are available depending on age.
6-10 month old ‘sitter’ session … a gorgeous session held in my home studio using natural light, a white background and a few carefully selected, timeless props. 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. I include some candid photos with parents and we then finish with a splash in my mini-clawfoot bath for your child. These sessions are for 45 minutes, cost $400 and you receive 30+ images in colour and the same set converted to B+W.
10-13 month old Cake Smash … perfect to celebrate the one year milestone and held in my home using studio lighting. Sessions include a portrait shoot (including family photos if you would like to join in), a professionally made cake, outfits, props and a splash with bubbles in my mini-clawfoot bath. These session are for 60 minutes, cost $550, with 40+ colour images provided and a cute digital collage.
any age session … a great way of capturing your child/children to remember their current stage while we explore a favourite outdoor location, or hold a studio style shoot. These sessions are for 45 minutes, cost $400 and you receive 30+ images in colour and the same set converted to B+W.
Families … $700
Includes a 60 – 90 minute photo shoot either outdoors or in your home. Outdoor sessions are held in the beautiful, soft light in the hour before sunset. We have lots of gorgeous places to use as backdrops on the Northern Beaches, and I’m happy to suggest some that will best suit your family. I also travel, and love visiting families that might be getting together at an AirBnB etc, so let me know your plans. My aim is to keep your session relaxed and fun, while capturing the connection between you all. You will receive 60+ images in colour and the same set also converted to B+W. I happily welcome extended families, but there will be an additional fee of $100.
Maternity … $400
An outdoor maternity session that can be just for the mum-to-be, or include your partner and any other children. Focusing on the curves and connections at this exciting time. Sessions are for 45 minutes and you will receive 30+ images 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.
CORPORATE + COMMUNITY EVENT PHOTOGRAPHY
I cover client and industry events, gala dinners, award ceremonies, conferences, sporting events, fundraisers and school graduations etc. You receive a secure, password protected online gallery and are able to download both high-resolution and low-resolution JPEG’s of all your images. You then have the option of sharing your online gallery with staff and guests if required. I offer fast turnaround of your images, with the link to your gallery being sent within 2 business days. A few highlight images will also be sent the morning after your event for your socials if required. There is a minimum of 2 hours coverage which is $700, then $150 for each extra hour.
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 email 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. I hold Public Liability insurance and my Working with Children 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.
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.
