THE SESSION / SHOOT 

 

My sessions / shoots are loving, special, gentle and non cheesy.

A mix of candid and quiet direction, keeping it relaxed and calm.

Gone are the days of always smiling looking at camera. While I get some of these, it’s mainly the laughing, playing, tickles, cuddles and silliness that are the most captivating portraits.

Don’t worry if you child it not sitting straight or giving the most perfect smile.

A shoot goes for an hour, this is just the right amount of time for it to not be rushed and me to capture lots of beautiful moments.

They take place outside as I love nature and soft, ambient light.

I use lovely locations around the Adelaide Hills, Fleurieu and Adelaide.

I shoot in the best light.  They happen early morning and late afternoon. Depending on the location and ages of children.

Please be open and to the possibility to travel a little. Some suitable locations may be up to an hour from the city.

You may need to get up earlier than normal or change your evening routine a little to get the best light. It is soooooo worth it !

My shoots times are during the week and weekends.

Come along and leave your day and worries behind. Be completely present for this hour, with your incredibly gorgeous and special people !

LOCATIONS

 

I’m always exploring and finding beautiful locations. I love how a spot can be completely different at various times of the year.

National Parks, Gardens, Orchards, Olive Groves, Forests, Beaches, Sand dunes, Fields, Wildflowers, Bushlands and Reserves !

At times during a year, I will do a whole block of shoots in the one location that is seasonable and only there for a few weeks.  Autumn scenes in May, Blossom Orchards in August and Canola fields in September.

I especially love the beach in winter for the soft light, shorter days and wintery layers.

As mentioned above, please be prepared to be flexible with times and willing to travel as these are thought out carefully.

If you find a pretty spot, please let me know !

CLOTHING

 

Putting thought and effort into choosing your clothing, elevates and enhances your Portraits.

While my shoots are about love, people and connection, the location and outfits tie it together.

Some photographers offer client wardrobes, however my objective is to capture authentic moments and so I want you to look like you, wear your own clothes, as that is a part of your style and personality.

Coordinating your outfits is best. Matching exactly the same is a bit dated, gone are the days of all wearing white shirts and denim jeans.

Muted, earthy tones of nature look amazing.

Pick a colour you love and use as a pop in your portraits.

If you want to go all neutral, think of different shades of neutral to add depth.

Tie patterns together with colour palettes

Go for a flowy floral dress and use the tones from that as your  colour palette.

Textures and layers photograph beautifully. Beanies, hats, scarves look fab ( just not everyone wearing them! )

Avoid heavy blocks of dark plain if the rest of your outfits are lighter.

Also think about your home and so pics on the wall will look fantastic.

I recently had a shoot with my doggies and wore a floral dress in the colours of my living room as I wanted a big Wall Print.

Chat to me about your location and what will work with that. Send me a lay flat of your outfits.

Let’s create really special memories and art for your home x
