Quiet observation with gentle prompts is how I like to describe my documenting style, I understand it can be awkward in front of the lens so I aim to ease the awks with light banter and getting to know you and your little folk before starting our sessions. No forced or strained smiles here, our time together is a time to relax, enjoy eachothers company and have fun. Afterall these are the golden days. As I like to document a natural and authentic aesthetic, this is also followed through with my editing style. Any requests for wrinkles or imperfections to be "photoshopped out" will be politely declined as I believe these so called 'imperfections' are part of our journey and part of what makes us who we are, a part of us to be celebrated not removed.
If you are booking a maternity session the ideal timeframe to be having your shoot would be between 34-37wks, however in saying this if you'd like your shoot to double as an announcement then we can definitely book you in earlier. I am happy to incorporate a scan image or if you are a family that has lost a child, I welcome you to bring a momento or ashes to be included in your session. However if you are also a family dealing with the loss of a newborn please contact me directly to capture your precious moments together free of charge.
Newborn sessions are best to be booked within the first 10days of arrival, the gorgeous newness passes so quickly and we want to be able to capture those special features during such a fleeting time in your baby's first weeks.
Please note that shoots located outside of Wanaka will incur a travel fee, please contact me for further information regarding travel costs.
