Lifestyle Family Sessions
Our focus is on expressions and on capturing emotion with an attention to detail and creativity. It’s more of a lifestyle approach that expresses the love between each member of the family.
Frequently asked questions
What kind of photographer are you?
We aim to capture honest photos of your family, children or partner. The goal is not to get a stiff and posed shot with everyone looking at the camera, but to capture the true essence of your family or loved one. We take a documentary approach to photography and use my understanding of my equipment and natural or artificial light to create images that will become works of art that you can hang in your home and pass down for generations.
Where will my session be held?
The local Wide Bay area is full of amazing locations. There is so much natural beauty and so many beaches, piers, walkways, buildings and parks. You almost can’t go wrong.
What will my session be like?
We fully understand that being photographed by a stranger may seem daunting to most, but rest assured, we are relaxed, down-to-earth person and will do everything possible to create a fun, comfortable and stress-free environment.
What should I wear?
Ideally, it’s best to wear something that is comfortable and makes you feel good. Stay away from clothing with logos or loud colors. And of course watch out for outfits that might clash. Rather than match perfectly, think of having everyone wear something that goes together in a natural yet not overly obvious way. I’ve found that typically solid neutral colors work best for parents and kids can wear prints. But most importantly wear something that authentically reflects who you are.
Should I bring props?
Feel free to bring any props which you would like to incorporate into the session.
Can I share the images on social media once I receive them?
Yes of course, but please may we ask that you credit us as the photography company responsible for the photos.
When can we see the photos?
Two weeks after the session, you will receive a link to your online gallery to be able to view and download the images.
Can I print the photos myself?
Definitely. You can use my print lab or chose one of your own.
How can we sign up?
It typically works best to come up with a few scheduling options that work for your family. You can send those to us directly by clicking on the "Book Now" button above. That will get the ball rolling and from there we can find a time and day that works best.
What if I have more questions?
We'll be glad to help. Feel free to contact us as: email@example.com.
How often should I take family photos?
While we would like to suggest scheduling a family session annually, we know that regularly scheduled portrait sessions may be difficult for some. Choosing to schedule your session close to a family event or the holidays is a great way to commemorate that special time.
What if I am not photogenic?
Believe it or not, many of our families tell us this before their session, and it never turns out to be true! We love coaching our families through their session, and have a lot of tricks up our sleeves to make you look fabulous! When you’re having a great time, you’ll look more beautiful than you thought was possible.
Can I keep the images from my session private?
Of course! If you would prefer to keep your images private, you may indicate so when booking your session. For families who choose to decline releasing their photos to our blog, we absolutely respect your decision and will keep your images under lock and key.
Do you travel outside of the Wide Bay area / Queensland?
Absolutely! Please contact us for more information.
