A LIFE WELL CAPTURED
Taking iPhone snaps is a super easy way to create beautiful memories of your family, but there’s usually one super important thing missing from them …. You!
Video even goes one step further, capturing movement and sound, mannerisms and laughter. Memories of the whole family that will be priceless in the years to come when the kids are all grown up - a memory that can be kept safe from time and dusted off anytime they become a bit distant and you need a reminder.
Having recently invested in a family shoot of my own for my parents, I realised that there were so many versions of them that I had stored in my head, but that I had never seen in photos, until now. The photos from that shoot are my favourites of them, and I will cherish them forever. Even the shoot itself was a special experience for us all, coming together and wearing our favourite clothes and daring to show our affection for each other in more obvious ways.
Children grow up, parents age and you start to realise more as each day passes how precious these moments with the people you love really are, and how much more you will treasure them as the years go by.

HOW DO WE BOOK?
Woot woot! I’m already excited !
Swing me an email via the Family contact form on my Contact Page. Give me an indication on what you’re interested in having done, anything you might have in mind, and when you would like filming to be or if there’s a special date the film needs to be finished by. I'll reply with dates, price confirmation and a few questions about you guys and your life together as a bit of recon for what will suit you best for your shoot.
We can chat about some of the great locations that you have in mind, about simply cuddling up on your couch at home, or I can happily suggest some of my favourite outdoor spots.
I’ll chat to you in our emails about the best ways to prepare your house (what spots we will shoot in, removing items that don’t have personal value such as tissue boxes, phone chargers etc) should we get cozy at home, or what to bring to an outdoor shoot (snacks, toys, blankets etc) if we decide to go for something more adventurous.
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?
Preferably stay away from any insanely bold prints/logos, but honestly, wear whatever you feel most fabulous and comfortable in !
WHAT TIME OF DAY WILL YOU BOOK OUR PHOTOSHOOT?
Usually the Golden Hour (or Auburn Hour heh heh) is the best - so in summer that might be about 6-7pm or in the other months around 5-6pm.
If this isn’t achievable, we can look at booking in a day that looks overcast so that we can shoot a bit earlier, or shooting somewhere indoors with a lot of beautiful natural light.
WHAT IF ONE OF US IS SICK?
Reschedule - no man (or woman, or child) is left behind!
WHAT IF THE KIDS AREN’T IN THE MOOD OR MY HUSBAND ISN’T INTO IT?
There’s really no pressure to ‘perform’ here, really. Usually there is a bit of nerves at the start of any shoot (I mean, who among us is used to having a camera on us??), but most of the time after about 10-15 minutes everyone gets used to it, and once the preconception of needing to structure the ‘perfect family’ scenario gets thrown out the window even hubby will start to loosen up !
The point is to enjoy yourselves, have fun, and create some memories!
