All About My Photographic Style
Photography for me is all about capturing the best parts of life - the sweet and beautiful moments shared with a newborn baby in the house, the delicate nuances of a family settling down for the evening with a glass of wine, the boisterous playtime of young siblings and the gorgeous comfort of a couple who have spent their whole lives together, and have a plethora of kids and grandkids to show for it.
My whole process is about avoiding the pretentious, the overly-styled, the baby-dressed-as-a-sunflower. Let's just hang out, with a big mug of tea or a glass of champagne. Let's let the kids be kids and pull silly faces.
The magic lies in the unscripted - when everyone feels super comfortable in casual clothes that really reflect themselves, and the smiles on your faces are genuine and authentic.
There'll be no tutus and tiaras in my shoots, no cake smashes, no props required at all; except for love, cuddles and a few tickles along the way! The best photos are the ones where you look at each other (rather than at the camera!), engage with each other, tell silly stories, blow bubbles and have some fun. Every now and then we'll get you to all look at the camera and do a big cheesy grin, but the best pics happen when you just have fun with each other.
Let's leave the session feeling like we've made a new friend - because honestly I do.
And when the babies cry? I'm so patient. It's just a baby crying, that's what they do. And when the kids have tantrums? That's just what they do too. As soon as they see that the fun can continue they tend to like that idea better :)
So let us capture your lives the way they are now - absolutely marvellous. Don't worry about running around your house polishing and cleaning like a crazy person. Life is beautiful when it is real and true. My favourite pics from when I was a kid are the ones when we're doing the most normal of things, all piled up on a favourite couch, running through the sprinklers in the back garden, making pancakes in the kitchen.
That's how you get transported back to those wonderful moments that are so easily forgotten.
There's no such thing as perfect.
Please note: I am a fun, laid-back photographer, who will make your booking, photo shoot and post-production process as simple and easy as possible! I am not a studio photographer, and do not have a studio. My style is all about capturing life just as it is, so we'll shoot in your family home or a great outdoor location such as Delta Park. I do not provide wardrobe, and think the best props are tickles, cuddles and smiles! I do not under any circumstances release raw or unedited photographs.
