When you buy something from an artist, you’re buying more than an object or service. You’re buying hundreds of hours of trial and error and experimentations. You’re buying years of frustration, years of growth, moments of pure joy. You’re buying a piece of their heart. a piece of their soul, and a small piece of their story.

If you love the idea of capturing real time, authentic moments of this season in your life that you can replay like a movie over and over again, a Family Film session is for you. It's like pressing pause on one day of your life, giving you the ability to re-live it over and over again. Ideal for the family who wants to remember all the nuances of everyday life to celebrate the importance of the here and now. It all begins with a phone consult with me where we’ll plan your session around what’s most meaningful to you.
Each session is tailored just for you. Are you morning or evening people? Do you want to know what it looks like when your child crawls into your bed in the morning, or see that special routine at bedtime, or witness how much you value those snuggly afternoon naps more than (almost) anything?
And if you’re worried that your littles might not be on their best behavior, I’ve got you covered.
I recently had a session where a mum told me her 6- and 8-year-old boys were going through a fighting stage, and she wished me luck in getting them to “smile for the camera.” I told her that I don’t put any pressure on kids to do anything while I’m photographing—that we’d just have fun and the focus would be on just spending time together. On the day of the session, she was amazed at how much fun the whole family had, and how we were able to get natural, REAL smiles with no arguments. Now they keep asking when I’m coming back!
Will you help me plan my session?
I love being by your side to help you plan for your shoot. I'll send you a guide to help prepare you. We'll also talk on the phone, Facetime and email several times before your shoot to decide on outfits, locations, hair, makeup, best time of day and much more. By the time we shoot we'll almost be besties. On your session day all I want to capture is the feelings, the mood, the emotions, the calm and crazy moments and all the details that make you and your family unique. T I want to catch all of the raw, organic moments.
what do we wear?
This is always a top question but don't stress. After you book your session I will send you a full prep guide which will cover all the best outfit choices and which colors are most flattering to photograph.
Where are you based and do you travel?
I'm based in Orlando, Florida and yes I love to travel! If you want me to photograph your story, it will require a travel fee, depending on where it takes place. But no worries, I always try to find the cheapest way to come to you.
What time will my session be?
So if we are talking outdoors I do all of those sessions at sunset! We will aim to start the shoot roughly around 45 minutes before the sun sets. This is when the light is at its most softest and most golden.
For film sessions those are 3 hour sessions and can take place anytime.
How many pictures will we receive?
I always choose quality rather than quantity and that's why I will choose the best and more significant photos to tell your story. You will have all of the best images to choose from when ordering.
When will we get our photos?
Generally my turnaround time for photos is about 2-4 weeks. If you've booked a family film, my turnaround is 4-6 weeks depending on my travel schedule and the season. The high res images will be delivered online for you to download straight away and print at your leisure. If you'd like any help with printing I'd be more than happy to chat with you about that and can order prints/albums through my preferred pro lab.
When is my session fee due?
** 20% of the creative fee is required as a non-refundable deposit to hold your date, with the remainder due the week before your session unless you opt for the split payment options,
in which case the first payment is required as a non-refundable deposit to hold your date.
Do you offer payment plans?
Absolutely! I want you all to have the option to have beautiful images of you and your family. I know photography is a luxury and can sometimes be out of budget. So we can definitely organize a payment plan that suits you and your family.
What's your rescheduling policy?
If I’m even remotely feeling unwell - I’m going to reschedule your session. I’m not willing to risk turning up to a session with a cough or a sniffle in the middle of a pandemic, and I would expect the same from you. Seasonal allergies, etc are different. But if you or the children are unwell, please tell me and we’ll reschedule. I don’t mind rescheduling at all and have extra days built into my calendar specifically for this reason. I kindly ask for no more than one reschedule per family.
