Let's create something incredible
I’ve been helping my clients capture the joy and beauty of their families since 2014. I’ve refined my process to be as streamlined, simple, and stress-free as possible - you’ve got enough on your plate as it is! A successful photoshoot doesn't just happen by accident. From our first communications to the exciting day your prints arrive, I’ll lead you through the process step by step, ensuring that you get the beautiful images you’ve dreamed of.
During the shoot its my job to place you in natural and flattering poses and to document the real and authentic moments as they happen. This leaves you free to enjoy your family as they are, enjoy how things unfold, and have trust in me to get the shot.
Your shoot fee $450
(Which includes a $200 print credit)
Purchase your images as digital files or prints
Enjoy your memories!
A what to wear guide: Styling can really lift your images! I'll send you my what to wear guide with colour recommendations and other tips to make sure you look and feel amazing. I'm more than happy to do a wardrobe consultation over Skype or Zoom if you need some help!
Location planning: Newborn shoots are typically done in your home. Don't worry it doesn't have to be perfectly tidy, all I need is some window light! I'll send you tips on how to prep so we can make the most of your space.
Pre-shoot questionnaire: What you tell me here will help me get to know more about your family and understand what you want to get out of your shoot.
Your photoshoot time: My shoots aren't timed, I will photograph for as long as we need to get some beautiful images, and this also allows time for breaks for baby to feed and settle if necessary. Typically I spend between 60-120 minutes photographing newborns.
$200 credit: Towards your print or digital file product purchases
What is a typical spend for a family portrait session? If you just want a few images my digital packages below start at $450. However, usually clients spend between $1000 and $3000 on a portrait session.
Everyone's priorities are different, the one thing they have in common is they know how fleeting and precious these days are and it's a priority for them to capture their family's memories. Some prefer to purchase framed ready to hang archival prints, other's still like to receive the digital files, regardless of which you prefer I have range of products to suit.

Image reveal session
At the end of the shoot we'll book a date for an image reveal session. These appointments take place 1-2 weeks after your session. This is when I'll share your images and support you in choosing how these could best look in your home space. I have samples so you can see exactly what the prints look like and choose the best option for you.
During this time you can purchase your favourite images from your session, however there is no obligation to do so. This session can be done in your home, over zoom call or in a cafe, whatever is easiest and most convenient for you.
After 2-4 weeks your prints will arrive all ready to hang and enjoy.
You can’t print a USB and your family images deserve to be immortalised in ink.
We live in a world where images have five minutes of fame on a newsfeed, before they are put to rest on a hard drive. I believe that the digital file is not the end product, the print is. That photography achieves its highest purpose in physical form which people can enjoy over and over again. The problem is that printing can be hard and confusing. That's why I offer the finest quality prints and albums from a local New Zealand owned business. Let me make showing off your images. Check out some of my beautiful print options below!
