About Me, The Session & Pricing
Where am I?
Most of the year you can find me in Auckland, New Zealand except July, when we're typically in Belgium and/or the U.K. .
Who Am I?
A kiwi (born and bred down under) who lives most of the year in Auckland, New Zealand but travels regularly to Brussels, Belgium, my second home. I have wonderful friends and clients on both sides of the world, feel very lucky to have them and very happy not to have suffered a long cold dreary full winter for many many years - follow the light!
Families: 1-2 hours. Extended family are welcome for no extra cost. Pets are also most welcome! Have a bestie? Coffee group? Joint families welcome.
Newborns: 2-4 hours Your baby determines the schedule. There is no rushing. You can relax while I get to snuggle your baby to sleep. Yup, adore newborn baby sessions. The best time for newborn portraits is around 5-7 days old but anytime under 2 weeks is fine.
Baby: 0.5-1 hour. Baby milestones are lovely to capture: 3 months old when baby is smiling, 6 months old when baby is sitting up and 1 year old when baby is standing and celebrating his/her first birthday.
On location session: we decide on the perfect location and hang out.
Home session: based in your home, I’ll follow you around capturing the favourite things you love to do together. Games, cooking, cuddling, pretend sleeping, gardening, trampolining, swimming etc.
Mixed: a mix of home and on location.
Studio session: suitable for the more posed portraits, we'll meet in studio.

You complete a portrait agreement which tells me a little more about you and what you are looking for.
We decide on a location and time.
A few days before, we discuss the weather forecast making a final decision on go/no go a couple of hours before shoot time. May need to postpone. If in Europe, there is a chance of cancellation due to limited availability in the country.
Hopefully the sun will be shining so we can have a fun shoot!
Within 2 weeks, I will let you know when your gallery is ready. You choose a four day period when you will have time to look through the gallery and decide on your order. On day one of the four day period, I send you a link to your gallery. The gallery will include 30-50 images (15 if a mini session). Four days to enjoy the images, share, get advice and consider your budget. No "on the spot" high pressure sales session.
A link is emailed where you can download your chosen images.
