I have learned that many mothers want to capture the fleeting and irreplaceable moments of motherhood, but they struggle with making themselves a priority or feeling overwhelmed with the process. I also understand that having your photo taken can feel uncomfortable at the best of times. 


So I create an atmosphere that feels safe, comfortable and beautiful. An atmosphere that reminds you that it’s okay to make yourself a priority - to see yourself the way your baby sees you. So together, we can create images where women are celebrated in the moments they, and their children, will treasure forever. 

All Portraits include:


A QUESTIONNAIRE

So I can get a clear idea of your vision and know how to best work with you and your family


A COMPREHENSIVE PREP GUIDE

So you know exactly what to wear, expect and how to prepare


LOCATION PLANNING & SCOUTING

I have a range of locations I like to use and will suggest depending on your vision. However I'm also happy to location scout if needed!


ACCESS TO CLIENT WARDROBE

A beautiful range of garments in multiple sizes, styles and colours that photograph beautifully and work with all bumps. Saving you the stress of finding something to wear.

You can view this online here.


High & Low resolution digital files

High resolution will be perfect for printing and lower resolution images are perfect for sharing online.


1 year cloud storage of all images in a private online gallery

So don't fret if you've lost any images and also know that this means you have a whole year to upgrade your gallery.

This online gallery also makes sharing your images with family and friends super easy and straight forward. You can download your purchased images as many times as you like so if you have family overseas that would like to print any images - simply give them the link to your gallery and they can download any images you allow.


Ability to mark images private in your gallery

If you would like to share your gallery with family and friends, but have some images remain private, simply ask and I can make this possible for you.


multiple payment options and plans

You can pay for your session via credit card, bank transfer or pay off for up to 12 months with Humm, or over 6 weeks with Laybuy *T&C's apply

How does Laybuy work?

Laybuy allows you to spread the total cost over 6 interest free weekly automatic payments. If the balance is higher than what your laybuy balance allows, the first payment will have the difference with the rest distributed among the remaining 5 weeks. If you would like to pay via Laybuy - Simply let me know via the contact information provided in your invoice.

How does Humm work?

For buying 'Little things', you get up to $1,000 and your choice to repay fortnightly in 5 slices that's 2.5 months. You can even pay for 'Little things' weekly if it's better for you. All with no interest or added fee's.

For buying 'Big things', you can apply for anything up to $6,000. 20% will need to be paid upfront along with the $20 establishment fee, and the remaining balance can be paid off over a 12 month term. Please note that there is also a $2.50 monthly fee on 'Big Things' purchases.

What if it's raining on the date of our shoot?

I'm happy to dance with you in the rain if you are! However, I keep a close eye on the weather and if the forecast looks really bad I'll be in touch a day or so before the shoot with some alternative dates or an alternative location.

What level of retouching do you do?

I may occasionally use photoshop to adjust things that do not normally appear on a daily basis , for example - acne/bruises/scrapes etc. I will also occasionally use photoshop if you are wanting to purchase any prints with me to remove any extra distractions and help with cropping important details. However, I believe you are beautiful the way you are so I don't do any high end skin retouching or warping of reality. If you are self conscious about anything however, please let me know in advance and we can make sure you're as comfortable as possible on the day of the shoot and I can potentially help with certain angles and clothing suggestions.

I'm so awkward, do you tell me how to pose?

Yes 🙌🏽 I don't expect that you do this everyday so will give you direction and guidance throughout the whole shoot. Generally my directions may be brief (e.g. walk over there) so I can capture those natural and candid shots. However some directions will definitely be more directional when needed (e.g. place your hand here). Either way, you don't need to worry. I've got you 💕

How soon should I book in?

As soon as you can as I'll only take on around 8 shoots a month.

Do you use locations out of Hamilton?

Yes definitely! I will happily travel to smaller rural locations on the outskirts of Hamilton at no extra cost for all packages except the mini. I also occasionally travel to Auckland and Tauranga - but whether or not I can take on a booking that requires this amount of travel will depend heavily on the birth bookings I have in the month.

Do you do extended family sessions?

No. I no longer offer extended family sessions because as a birth photographer I will sometimes need to postpone a session and understand just how much effort goes into preparing so many different people for this day! There are some amazing photographers who I can always suggest to help you instead though if you wanted to reach out to me.
