EDITING Editing is the secret ingredient for the beautiful images you receive. It takes time for me to source the beautiful weaved in our time together and carefully and artistically create timeless images. I have been perfecting my editing for years. I edit every single image. Each and every image is touched by me and perfected for you.
THE PHOTOGRAPHY Will be unobtrusive and enjoyable so I am the only photographer with you. I will gently move with you, beside you and sometimes nowhere near you to capture the essence of you, your story, your moment. Throughout our session I will gently guide and direct you.
POSING We all find it hard to be photographed and in front of the camera, myself included. So please don't be nervous as you have already made the hardest decision to reach out and ask me to capture you. I think you are brave and wonderful. This is what I love to do, create beautiful portraits just for you. So, be yourself. You are most welcome to just spend some time together and I will click pause on those fleeting moments under the natural light. Finding the unscripted joy is a love of mine.
LOCATION, HOME OR BOTH? I want to capture the heart and soul of YOU so there is not a one size fits all for location. It is important that you are comfortable with the setting and myself because when you are, the session will flow naturally. I love capturing your story and that does not matter where we do it. UNSURE? We can choose a place you have always wanted to visit as a family or I can recommend some places that I love and keep a secret. Capturing the excitement of discovering somewhere new is always lovely as we wander. An outdoor location is a love of mine and I seek that golden light to encapsulate in your images. OR... Lets stay home as there is no place like home. The warmth of home, the garden, the little details within your home always makes for emotional keepsake memories. This is a place where you are comfortable and we can document your every day beautiful and pause on the sentiments of what home and family are.
HOW AND WHEN DO WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS... you will receive high resolution, professionally edited images in an online gallery. What does this mean? There are no watermarks and they are ready to be printed or used for websites and social media. Maybe you just want to share with friends and family or download. Within your online gallery from Pic-Time their lab partners offer a variety ofprint products from fine art prints, frames to premium quality albums. You have time and choice in how you would like to make your memories tangible. Or you may like to download and print locally. I do add an approximate number of images to my collections however I always tend to add a little more as I don't want to leave any moments that tell your story.
HOW DO I BOOK... Get in touch via a reply email, through my contact page on here, flick a message... If I am the right person for you it would be an honour to be invited to walk alongside you and tell your story.
CLOTHING... Wear clothing that is YOU! There is no one else quite like you. If you are looking for advice… wear complimentary colour tones with the people that will be in your photos. Make sure your comfy in what your wearing. My only suggestion is no overly loud prints and logos as they can be distracting. I do love individuality so avoid everyone in white shirts or all matching. Lets show who you are at this moment in your life.
