About the session
Relax and have fun! That is most important. Spending time with your family and playing games with your kids is where I like to start. Sometimes it takes a little time for some personalities to warm up but I have some good activities to help if needed. Extended families are welcome too and PETS! If you have a fur baby - please bring along your dog(s), they are a part of your family and make a great addition to your portraits!
Please be open minded and relaxed for your portraits. As a fellow Mumma (and a perfectionist) I have had a number of my own family photoshoots and I can honestly say from experience that “expression beats perfection” this is a powerful mantra to say to yourself on the day! Children playing and having fun is a far better result than being told they must sit “here” and smile… especially for the wriggly smallest ones!
get to know
The opportunity to spend a few hours photographing a beautifully pregnant woman is such an honour. So often my maternity clients haven't been feeling it, because they are so drained after 30 weeks - this is where I show you the absolute glow that everyone else sees! I get chills when it comes together, studio or at sunset outdoors - something magical happens and you will see me jumping on the spot squealing! It's now become one of my favourite shoots
because the transformation that happens is probably my all time favourite thing. That change in a woman when she looks at herself and sees someone in all nature's perfect glory... it is there that all of a sudden the larger dress size, the swollen feet and exhaustion becomes a tribute to the greatness and privilege it is to be a woman - in her most awesome of bodies - loving, growing and feeding their newborn. This sums it up for me - for sure!

Thank you for your patience, this can take between 2-4 weeks. You will receive an email with all the instructions to log in to your online gallery, you can share this with your family & friends too! You will need to sit down together to choose your favourite images and I love to hear your first reactions! So will call you as soon as I can!
THE MOMENT YOU'VE BEEN WAITING FOR!
It's been really hard to contain it myself but I'm getting through the family orders... and YOUR next! Whooo hooo! I hope we see each other again - it has been amazing to capture this time in your life! Let me help you with one VERY important ending... PRINT. If you don't print it and hang it somewhere proudly - who's going to look at your computer files?
