full of life
CHILDREN'S PHOTOGRAPHY WITH PERSONALITY, FUN & SWEET MOMENTS
Do you want portraits of your child that are full of life and all about personality?
Do those stiff, posed pictures with unnatural - or even worse - cheesy smiles leave you a bit meh!
Then choose pictures that are full of fun, movement, quirkiness, sweet moments and simply brimming with personality.
Whether your child is shy, quiet, boisterous, full of mischief or can't still for a second - those are the things you want to capture and remember forever.
So if you want pictures that are definitely going to be keepers, then I'm opening up a special Pop-up Portraits day for families just like yours.
Edith took my sons preschool photos this year and I only wish I sent my big kids in for a sibling photo.
The photos are incredible and really capture our little boy.
I cannot recommend her enough!
Thank you for such precious photos.
how it works?
THIS IS HOW YOU GET PHOTOS YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE, LOVE, LOVE
Book a 20 minute session (for up to 2 children) to bring your child/children in to be photographed.
Tickets go on sale 15 June. The cost of the session is $75 (Early Bird tickets are $50 until 21 June).
Depending on your child - stay with them for the pictures, or leave it all to me.
Get your own private online gallery to view your images (expect 15-20 images in colour and black & white).
Choose your favourite images to buy as prints and/or digital files - there's no minimum spend, you only buy what you love.
Even better, because this is my style of school photography, I'm offering this at at school photography prices so it's highly affordable! You can view the price list here.
every child is unique
SO LET THEIR PERSONALITY SHINE
If you email me when you see your images to say I've really captured your child's personality and character I'm going to leap out of my seat and yell 'Bingo!' (the dog usually leaps up and starts barking too).
Then I'll sink back down in the quiet happiness of a job well done.
Because I love how all children are so individual and unique, so while my portraits are all shot in the same simple style, they all look different.
My husband and I were totally blown away by the photos!
Edith really captured so many aspects of her character. They are just gorgeous.
authentic | artistic | fun
WHAT MAKES MY STYLE OF CHILDREN'S PORTRAITS DIFFERENT?
Children are photographed on a classic black background for a timeless look and feel (plus it looks amazing when you put it in a frame).
Every picture has an artistic feel with all the focus on your child's face and their expression.
The experience for each child is all about encouraging them to be themselves to capture natural and authentic expressions unique to them.
All images have a choice of colour or black and white so you can choose what suits your home or mix them up to create a stunning display.
Super-easy viewing and ordering all done via a slick online gallery.
We were extremely happy and suprised that you got some photos of our boy without him pulling a silly face or refusing to smile as that is what we always get!
HOW DO I BOOK?
Tickets go on sale Tuesday 15 June 2021.
I'm giving away one free session so be sure to enter the draw.
You'll get an email with the link to buy tickets once they go on sale.
WHAT AGES DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH?
I love photographing all children from babies through to teenagers.
Babies and children who are shy can sit on your knee and hold your hand (you won't be in the shot).
HOW MUCH WILL THE PHOTOS COST?
This is your opportunity to get beautiful pictures at school photography prices!
All prints and digital files will be offered at exactly the same price that they are for schools and preschools. You can view the full price list here.
I'll also be offering framed prints for those of you who know you'll never find the time to go and buy your own frames. Bonus!
WHAT ABOUT SIBLINGS?
Siblings are welcome!
If you have more than one child you are welcome to bring them all and I will shoot sibling photos as well as individual portraits of each child.
If you have 3 or more children you will need to book two sessions to allow enough time.
WHERE WILL THE PHOTO DAYS BE HELD?
The photo day is in a gorgeous studio in Consultancy House.
You should be able to park right outside on a Sunday. Easy peasy!
a little about me
I am a family photographer based in Dunedin and shoot in a style that is very natural and unposed.
I love having all the fun with the kids. It's so awesome to see how they open up when you give them time and space to be themselves.
One of the best things I ever overheard a kid say was: 'she doesn't tell you to stand still, but to run and jump and move - that was so much fun'.
When I'm not taking photographs I drink way too much tea, can never put a good book down and love long walks on the beach with the family.
