I am a portrait photographer with a love for natural, timeless family and small wedding photography.
As a photographer, I love connecting with people. I want you to look your best in your photos and to be able to make you smile from your heart. I understand light and the environment, so you can relax and let your own story shine through. I’ll help gently pose you where necessary, but the photos will always be simple, natural, unique and beautiful.
Where do we meet?
I think the best photos are taken where you feel happy. The beach, the forest, the park, a field of flowers, or a comfy chair in your home all make for beautiful photos. Abundant light makes pretty pictures, and sunrise and sunset give that golden glow.
What time should we do the shoot?
There are two good answers to this question:
From a photographer’s point of view, I love to shoot at sunrise and sunset, and the time around those. That may mean very early starts to catch the first rays, or late endings to get the golden light as the sun goes down.
From the point of view of little ones, your shoot is always easiest and best when everyone is well-fed and well-rested. We can always find a pretty spot where the light falls softly in the middle of the day.
What should I wear?
To create beautiful photos in which you look and feel your best, it’s worth giving a little thought to your photo shoot wardrobe. What clothes do you feel good in? I suggest choosing something timeless, without logos or prints. If you are having a family portrait, planning a palette that fits together makes your photos look cohesive. Think co-ordinating, rather than matching. I love the way a range of pastel clothing looks in photos.
You’re welcome to bring a few things along to the shoot if you’re not sure and we can have a look at what will work best together.
Do I have to bring props to the shoot?
I generally don’t use props in my shoots, but if there is something you would really love to have in your photos, feel free to bring it along!
Should I do hair and make-up?
Looking and feeling your best on the day of the shoot definitely makes you feel more confident, which shines through in your photos. It’s not necessary to get your hair and make-up done professionally, but taking the extra care really makes a difference to your photos in the end.
If you’d like a make-up artist recommended, I would be very happy to send you a list of people in your area.
How long will it take to get your photos?
After your session, you can’t wait to see some photos, I know! That’s why I’m a real believer in getting your photos to you as quickly as I can. Your USB, with carefully edited images will be ready within two weeks of your session.
How many images do I get?
I supply a minimum of 50, high resolution, edited images per hour of shooting. So, if you book a one hour portrait session, you will receive at least 50 photos. If you book a two hour session, you will receive at least 100 images.
