I'll do my best to get to know you before our session. Be specific and let your heart out in your pre-shoot questionnaire.
Let's be real, the idea of awkwardly standing in front of a camera for an hour can seem daunting right? We all get nervous before a shoot, but just know you don't have anything to fear. I'm as chill as can be when it comes to shoots and want you to feel the same way. My job isn't just taking pretty pictures, but it's about making sure you feel relaxed, calm, confident and excited for your session together. GUARANTEE you'll finish wondering what you were even scared about.
When you arrive for your shoot, don't feel stressed like we have to jump into shooting straight away. I never rush into sessions (unless we absolutely have to) and like to take my time to have a chat and see how you're feeling. I know it's often stress and chaos getting everyone in the family ready for the shoot, so take a moment to just breathe and let go.
You'll never have to worry about knowing "what to do". 'l will guide you through the whole session. There might be times I will encourage you take the lead if I can see you're in the flow, but otherwise I'll gently lead you. I hate to "over-pose" so subtle cues are always my go to.
Know that you never have to do anything in the shoot you don't want to do. This is your session so make it just that! My job is to empower and encourage you in whatever way that is for you. On the other hand, if there is something you really want to try, let's do it!
Believe it or not, actually taking photos is the smallest part of my job. Beyond the crazy amount of admin that comes with running a business (I get overwhelmed thinking of it all), there is a massive amount of time spent on editing.
On average I take around 1300 photos total a session and yes I go through EVERY SINGLE ONE until I have my top selected of around 70-100. Then each one of those is individually edited. On average, a regular gallery will take me anywhere from 3-6 hours to fully edit.
This brings me to my next point which is that I don't give out raw photos. Editing is half the art of photography and something that is unique and special to every photographer. I see editing as a way to naturally enhance an image without it feeling unnatural or fake.
So just know that when you leave a session and all your work is done, I'm working hard to give you back a beautiful and carefully edited gallery.
I can guarantee that at one stage or another, you’ve said to yourself “I need to get those photos printed”. I say it to myself all the time. It’s one of those things we seem to never get around to doing and yet something we should be making more of a priority.
In a generation where everything is digital, it’s so easy for photos to get lost and never be seen again. What a shame it is to think that one day you might have no physical photos to pass down to your kids or grandkids. There is nothing quite like flicking through your parents old photo albums and seeing a collection of physical memories that together, create a special story.
The thing is, how long can we keep saying “I’ll print them tomorrow, or next week or next year”? Because let’s face it - we never do! That’s why I always encourage you guys to opt for the print option. You don’t have to worry about a single thing! And yes you could just print them yourself at Officeworks or Harvey Norman, but from experience of printing both, you honestly CANNOT COMPARE. Places like this use low file quality, cheap paper and inexpensive ink, all which can lead to your photos printing funny colours and not lasting a lifetime. When you order prints from your photographer, you are ensuring that your photos have all been colour corrected, properly file formatted and sent to high quality print companies who carefully print your images on to the best fine art paper you can get.
So if you're keen to add on some prints to your package, make sure you let me know and I organise it all for you.
Are you needing some beautiful lifestyle shots of your business? Whether you're a cafe, hairdresser, florist, homewares shop or a sole trader, I can help.
I only take on a limited number of these shoots per year and can be selective to ensure that our businesses align and I can offer what you're looking for.
Whilst I no longer take on weddings, I occasionally take on small Elopements throughout the year. If you're eloping (and I'm talking under 10 people sort of eloping!), then feel free to get in touch.
I am still so passionate about capturing you and your love story, no fuss, just you two!
