"You treasure these forever!"

"Usually as a mum you take the pics of the kids or pics of dad with the kids and rarely do I get into a photo with my boys. Normally I will shy from the camera but I forgot that a camera was even there. We had lots of laughs with Kylie along the way and it was so chilled out! Our lives go by so fast, so to be able to capture special moments in family life is so important..."

capturing life in film

a film session at home and a near-by location that's special to you

$1499

If you love photos, but what you really love is watching old home movies from your childhood or videos of your kids on your phone, then this is the session for you! I'll make you a home movie that you and the kids will want to watch over and over and over again.

Show me what a film session can look like

Film sessions are much like a photography session, just a bit longer. It's a chance to relax and switch off from all of the noise of the outside world. We'll spend our time just hanging out, and in the process I'll capture your beautiful everyday moments. Those moments will then be hand-crafted into a 2-3 minute video time capsule that will preserve your memories in moving colour & captivating audio.

What does your film session include?

  • 3-4 hour session at home, which can also include a visit to a near-by location that's special to your family
  • a 3-4 minute family film preserving your memories in moving colour & captivating audio
  • a handful of beautifully edited images
  • your video & photos available to download from a private online gallery

Show me what a photos & film session can look like

Film & photo sessions take place over a slightly longer time period than a photos only session. This gives everyone a really good chance to relax and really forget that I've got a camera in hand. I'll take an equal amount of photos and video, and create a beautiful, short video time capsule that captures the real essence of your family and focuses on all the little things you love about your kids and want to remember forever.

  • 2-3 hour session at home and/or a location that's special to your family
  • a short (between 1-3 minutes) video time capsule you'll want to watch over and over again

Capturing life in Photos

a photography session at home OR at a location that's special to you

$899

As the great Ferris Bueller once said "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it". Family photography is not just a way to document a moment in time, but a time-out from your busy family schedule, a chance to really slow down and spend some time with each other. 

This is you, hanging out with your family and their new friend (me!) who just happens to have a camera. It's relaxed, it's laid-back, it's whatever you want it to be. What's it's not is boring, awkward or cheesy. In fact, every single one of my clients has told me after their session that they almost forgot I was taking photos!

Show me what a photo session can look like

If you really need a time-out from the busyness of life and want to update your family photos at the same time, then this is the session for you. If you're not the kind of person who likes having to smile for the camera or spend ages being posed, then I'm definitely the photographer for you!

What does your photography session include?

  • 2 hour photography session at home OR at a location that's special to you
  • 20+ beautiful, professionally edited images
  • your photos available to download from a private online gallery

  • A non-refundable booking fee of $250 is payable at the time of booking to secure your session date
  • Flexible payment plans are available
  • Locations further than 60kms from Richmond NSW will require a travel fee
  • Remainder of session fee payable on or before your session date


"I have no words to say thank you enough for our photos and video. We will treasure it forever. We really struggled to conceive G and didn't know if we would ever have another member of our family; throughout the whole pregnancy I was still worried and it didn't feel "real". With the haze of this week I don't think it hit me fully until I watched the video that we now have 3 kids!"
