Preserving memories is the foundation of why I do what I do.
That is why I have worked hard to develop a style which can best be described as timeless and also explains the high quality of the product range I have sourced that has a long archival life ensuring your portraits are enjoyed for generations to come. Products that won’t deteriorate, wear out under normal conditions or simply become old technology.
In order to make sure we bring all of this into focus and get you the best end result from a session involves a three step process.
The Planning Meeting
The reason this is important is because each family has it’s own set of dynamics, interactions and interest that make them unique.
Ten digits are enough to provide every phone number in the world, likewise even connections that may not seem uncommon make each family
unique and going into a session without that information is like trying to call someone by guessing their number.
Discovering what these are will help me create images that not only tell your story now but will open a floodgate of emotion and memories as you and your children look back on them in years to come.
We will also talk about what to wear and location etc.
A non refundable session fee of $150 is payable at this time and will be credited to your order.
The planning meeting will require about thirty minutes to an hour of your time.
The Photo Shoot
By the time of the session children should be made aware but please don’t get them overly excited as this will usually result in stage fright as soon as we are ready to start.
For very shy children it is sometimes advisable to start the session at home before moving on to a location. This allows the child to feel more
comfortable in his or her own environment as we break the ice.
The session itself can last up to a couple of hours. Be prepared to have a lot of fun.
The Ordering Session
I come to your home with a projector so that you can see your images as they would look on your walls.
I will also bring a range of products so that you can get an idea of how you would like your final images displayed as well as where. There are images of available products under the “PHOTO GALLERIES” link on this website.
There is only one ordering session so decisions are finalised at this point. Anyone who would like to buy something should be encouraged to be there.
This is the most exciting part of the process other than receiving your finished wall art.
Sessions are normally $150 to cover photographers cost and time. Enter here to win a family portrait session. (Print prices start at $75)

I only offer all day coverage because it is my goal to tell your whole story. When my clients look back on their wedding photos in years to come the unfolding events in their entirety will be there.
A girl spends her life hitherto thinking of her wedding. Photography is the closest possible approximation of all you have imagined now in hard copy that can then be shared with loved ones for generations to come.
It is a part of your soul, the culmination of years of intellectual and emotional investment that is captured to then be placed into your hands, literally giving birth to your dreams. Therefor working with a photographer who “gets” you is paramount.
I am not the photographer for every bride. It is as important to me as an artist that I don’t book a wedding if another photographers style is a better match as it is to book the bride who’s style and vision best aligns with mine.
Am I the photographer for you? If you think maybe so after viewing the galleries get in touch and we will meet for coffee and see where things go from there.
