Masthead header

what on earth is a day in the life session? 
documentary coverage of an ordinary day in the life of your family
full (10 – 12 hrs) OR half (4 – 6 hrs) coverage available (weekends or weekdays – whatever works)
half day sessions are 7am – 1pm OR 1pm – 7pm
no posing, no directing and best of all no pressure

how do they work?

sometimes I sleep over the night before but usually, I rock up and from there – it’s whatever you had planned; heading to netball, a visit to nanna’s, attending a birthday party or simply cosying up at home with a movie on a rainy day. I stay through until the kids are put to bed
* please note!! including family and friends is fab and encouraged but anyone involved in your day needs to know I’ll be there and happy (preferably ecstatic) to partake

does my home need to be spotless? 

NO (please make zero effort)!! your home should look as it would on any regular day
my favourite photos usually include bucketloads of unfolded washing, dirty dishes, snotty noses and unmade beds

do you take posed family group photos on the day? 

no but I’m always sure to get at least one or two images containing the whole family – usually snuggled up on the couch, playing in the backyard or mucking about in general

what will I receive? 

coverage of the fun, hard, amazing, tiring, busy, colourful, loud and unrelenting moments of parenthood
shareable online galleries and an online slideshow set to music
printable + shareable web resolution, colour corrected digital files on designer USB

do you make albums?

absolutely, YES!! unbelievably gorgeous, fine art, lay-flat coffee table books containing up to 50 of your favourite shots from the day across 25 beautiful double page spreads. there’s no better way to preserve your experience because – let’s face it – even if you do save the USB files to your computer, computer’s crash and PRINTS ARE SO NECESSARY!!

do you travel interstate for sessions?

absolutely, YES!! I’m Perth based but will happily traverse the countryside to get to you
