I will work with you in your portrait session to make you feel as comfortable as possible in what can be a super uncomfortable environment. Being in front of the camera can be a very confronting prospect, in a new space, with a new person, and I know it can be challenging when I am asking you to be vulnerable and open up to me.
But it is so rewarding to me as a photographer while I am editing your images, to see you open up and become so confident and assured over the course of a session. I can’t help but smile back at you while I am editing because you have relaxed and shown me how beautiful you are, and the gorgeous light everyone else sees in you.
I chose to do this because women in particular tend to take a step back behind the camera after all the milestone events (18th and 21st birthdays, engagements, weddings, pregnancies) and become invisible. They are normally the ones documenting their world around them, but not being recorded in it.
I feel a strong connection to history, genealogy and stories. I want to help document images of you now, whether it’s a special treat, a gift from a loved one, or you are in a period of transition in your life that deserves recording.
Record a story that was significant to your session, whether it is about the stage of life you are at, or something that you wore in your session that has a special meaning, so that these stories can be passed down with the images and future generations can hear in your own words what had such meaning to you at this time.
This is your legacy.
Below is some extra information that you may find useful about a photoshoot session with me, or click the button below to get in touch and organise a complimentary consultation to discuss what sort of session would best suit you and your style.
We will either meet in person, online via Skype/Google Chat or have a chat on the phone for a complimentary consultation prior to scheduling a session. I want to help you design your perfect session and how you would like to be photographed, so we will talk about your personal style and which images on my website have resonated most with you.
We will also discuss what you would like to do with your images and how you want them to be displayed.
Do you love to have art decorating your walls?
Framed prints may work best for you.
Is this photoshoot something special just for you or a loved one?
If that is the case then maybe a Folio Collection would suit better
There is a $200 session fee for my portrait sessions. This is paid at the time of scheduling your session as a booking deposit to secure your session, and is held as credit towards print purchases at your image reveal.
It also covers hair and makeup, additional styling and access to the studio wardrobe, plus a reveal session, where you will see your finished images and choose the images you love.
Folio Collection print packages start at $1100 and wall art (framed prints on the wall) start from $295
