The word 'Family' to us, can mean any combination of people and pets.  Whether you qualify for a remake of The Brady Bunch, or its just you and your cat, we love capturing your family in a relaxed and natural setting, whether that be at home, or at a location of your choosing.  Let's ditch the old style, posed "studio" shots and focus (pun intended) on bringing out the beauty in your individual relationships and personalities.

We take a natural approach to our images, working closely with you to create images that you will want to display in your home.  Our style is expressive and candid, with an emphasis on emotion and the documenting of love through frozen moments in time.

We look forward to working with you and your friends and family members to create a memorable experience, and lasting imagery.

Have Questions?

 
 

WHERE WILL YOU TAKE THE PHOTOS?

I will take photos anywhere you want to go in the Mackay region.  The beach, botanic gardens, your home, rural areas, and in the city heart, are all great places.  Pick a place where you and your family will be most comfortable, and of course set the backdrop for the type of photos you want.  Ideally if dogs are involved, it will be somewhere they have been to a number of times before.  If cats are involved, I highly recommended having the photos taken at home.

WHAT HAPPENS ON THE DAY?

We have fun!  We will meet up at the location at the session time (usually late afternoon for the beautiful light at that time of day).  We have a quick chat, and a get-to-know each other, and then we start taking some photos.  My aim is to make you feel as comfortable and natural as possible during the session.  You don't need to stress if kids aren't doing exactly what they're told.  Each child is individual, and I try to cater to their personality.  There is no cookie cutter photo session.  Each is unique.

WHY SPEND THIS MUCH MONEY ON PHOTOS?

Why not?  We strongly believe in regularly capturing your family in photos.  Providing memories and long-lasting images for years to come.

CAN MY PET/S BE IN THE PHOTOS?

Oh my goodness, YES!  We highly encourage all family members to be in the photos.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET MY IMAGES?

Your images are uploaded a maximum of 4 weeks after your session.

 

I DON'T WANT MY IMAGES SHARED ON SOCIAL MEDIA, IS THAT OK?

Yes!  As always, if you do not want images of yourself, or your family, shared on social media, you have every right to let me know that, and I respect your decision.

WHEN DO I HAVE TO PAY FOR THE SESSION?

We do not send you an invoice until after the session.  As soon as you forward payment, and your images are edited, we will upload the images to your gallery, and forward you an email with the details.

CAN WE ORDER CANVASES, PRINTS AND ALBUMS FROM OUR SESSION?

Yes!  When we email you the gallery, we also let you know of the print services we can provide.  As you have a full print release of your images, you can take them anywhere you like to have printed yourself, but we do provide the option for high quality products, including canvases, prints and albums.

WHY YOU?

If you want someone down to earth, who loves a good laugh, and someone who is willing to go the extra mile to get that shot, then I'm your girl.
