Celebrate your family with beautiful, emotive images that capture your heart and soul!

Here’s a guide on what to expect from your Family Photography Experience:-

1.  Let’s Chat

I want to get to know you, what you love, what your family is like and what you want from your photoshoot.  Once I have an idea of what you want I will give you a few ideas and together we will design a photoshoot that’s fun and creates an opportunity for the beautiful images you’ve imagined.  I’m always available for advice in the lead up to your photoshoot, and I’ve also compiled a few blogs for inspiration & ideas.

2.  Your Photoshoot

Your photoshoot will be relaxed and fun creating moments of connection naturally. I focus on love, joy and tender moments.

I will give some gentle instructions around posing and position you in the best light, and then using prompts which encourage you to interact naturally we will create some beautiful, authentic images together.

Photoshoots can be anywhere between 15 and 90 minutes depending on how many people are included, whether we are changing locations or outfits and exactly what we have planned for your session.

I move pretty quickly intentionally because little ones get bored quickly, and adults are less self-conscious if they don’t have too much time to think about what they’re doing.

Dads are known to be the least excited for photoshoots and I’m happy to say that most Dads are quite pleasantly surprised at how much fun and how quickly we manage to capture gorgeous images for their gallery.

3.  Your Gallery

Within 7 days of your photoshoot your images will be ready, and this may well be the most exciting part of the entire process!  You can opt for an online gallery or I love presenting your images at my studio which gives you an opportunity to see all the professional print products available for yourself.  I’m also a great help at picking favourites when you get stuck!

You can expect to see anywhere between 50 and 150 images in your gallery.  This depends on how much time we spent together and how the photoshoot played out.  I include a variety of expressions so that you’re able to choose the ones that are most natural to you.

Your gallery will have a variety of images captured from different perspectives, in different lighting and with a select few images converted to black and white.  My black and white edits are not just a straightforward conversion, each image is hand edited to create a beautiful, high contrast and impactful black and white image.

Digital packages are available in addition to the extensive range of stunning professional print products available.

4.  Printing Artwork from your Family Photography Experience

Once you have selected the perfect images and together we have created something truly amazing to showcase on your walls at home, I begin preparing your files and get them off to one of my carefully selected printers all over the world.  This process can take 3-4 weeks.

Custom designing of Wall Art Collections or Collage Frames is part of your experience so take advantage of my experience to ensure your final products match your vision.

My print products all carry guarantees of 35 -75 years so you are assured of a quality product that will last a lifetime!

I can’t recommend Zina enough, she went over and above for us including a change of location last minute based on the weather and she was fantastic working around our young and very enthusiastic kids! She produced some incredible, emotive and beautiful images of our family and her efficiency in responding to my queries and her professionalism was superb! Thank you Zina from the bottom of my heart.

A picture really is worth a thousand words
