How do I book a session?
If you get in touch with me via my contact form we can have a chat and discuss a suitable date and time for your shoot. I will then send through a confirmation email and invoice for a 20% deposit which will secure your spot.
I feel awkward in front of the camera. Do you have any tips for this?
I am a very relaxed photographer with a silly sense of humour which tends to help break the ice. I love capturing you as you are. I do offer direction so that you don't feel unsure or lost - it is usually the moments in between the direction where the magic happens.
Can you recommend locations?
There are so many beautiful locations around Marlborough - from the beach, to the hills, to frolicking through high grass or jumping off a jetty. I am also always open to any location ideas you may have that mean something to you and your family too.
What times do you hold your sessions?
For outdoor shoots I do recommend shooting at dusk - an hour or so before sunset. The light is absolutely stunning - almost surreal at that time.
I am an early riser with my little boy so I do also offer sunrise sessions if you are ever keen.
For in home newborn shoots I recommend photographing in the morning when the light is soft - perfect for capturing those delicate moments of your new baby.
Do you recommend printing services?
Absolutely. I don't personally print myself however I highly recommend the prints that you can do directly from the gallery I send through. There are so many stunning options on there and the quality is beautiful.
I also work with Queensberry, a service for photographers to print, frame and design beautiful albums for their clients.
I get so excited when clients choose to print so am always so happy to help you with this.
How long will it take to receive my gallery?
For newborn, maternity and family shoots I usually send through the final gallery within two weeks (usually less).
Wedding photography has a slightly longer turn around time - usually 4 - 6 weeks however I make sure to send through a little preview of your day as soon as the images are backed up on my computer.
