Enjoy a relaxed and comfortable maternity session in the comfort of your own home. Lifestyle sessions include husbands, children and fur babies and are designed to tell your family story. Hubby and kids can enjoy free time away from the camera while we do work on your individual portraits and optional milk bath, as well as details of your nursery. Lifestyle maternity sessions can be bundled with lifestyle newborn sessions, creating images that match and continue your story.
Location sessions allow moms-to-be to feel a bit more glamorous as you get to dress up in lovely flowing dresses, get your make up done and handpick your beautiful location backdrop. From rooftops, to forests and fields we will find and plan the perfect maternity location setting for you.
Step into a beautiful all white studio setting to create your timeless maternity images. Long flowing dresses with soft natural light will ensure your photo session is all about the beauty of your pregnancy and your journey into motherhood. In studio sessions can be bundled with newborn studio sessions to allow a continuity in your images.
The perfect way to capture your little one as they have just entered the world. Fresh 48 sessions are done within 48 hrs of the birth and are done in hospital, provided you have a private room. All the details will be captured for you to remember including their little arm bracelets, daddy's first skin on skin and little bub curled up with mom.
For c-section births please try book as soon as you know your scheduled date. For natural births, please book your session at least one month in advance and then simply message me as soon as you have confirmation that little one is about to arrive so I can find the perfect time to come through as I will have allocated time in my calendar.
Let's focus on your newborn's perfect little details with an all white, in studio session. Relax and get pampered with make up while myself and my assistant, a qualified auxiliary nurse, who will coax to sleep, swaddle and gently pose your little one for their very first photo shoot. Once your makeup is complete and you are dressed in a beautiful light dress we will proceed with your mommy and baby photos. Should you wish to include daddy and siblings simply let me know and we can welcome them in the last part of your session for timeless family photos. In studio sessions need to be booked in advance to ensure availability. Your session will be scheduled for baby when they are between 1 day and 10 days old, weekdays only.
The most relaxed of the newborn sessions, at home lifestyle sessions can be booked at any time while baby is 1 day to 3 months old. There is no posing of your little one, as I concentrate more on capturing the moments between you and your baby. Lifestyle sessions include baby in the nursery, breastfeeding (should you choose), as well as family and baby images. Lifestyle sessions are perfect for creating albums you can hand down to your children when they grow older.
Join me in the all white natural light studio where your little ones get to play. All white sessions and certain themed sessions are available all year round on weekends and weekdays. Some options include : cake smash | paint smash | spaghetti smash | pyjama time | pillow fights | glitter sessions | play time. In studio children sessions are designed to get little ones as comfortable as possible in front of the camera while they play and bounce around. No strict posing and no flashing lights make for a more relaxed session. Some kiddies don't like the idea of a photo session, so start telling them every day for a week before they are going for a fun photo shoot and if they are super stars they can get a surprise. Bribery works like a charm and helps to create a positive memory around having a photo shoot - so next year will run a bit smoother.
Lifestyle sessions are designed around your kiddies favourite activities in the comfort of their own home. Whether it is swimming in summer or cuddling up on the couch with their pooch in winter, I will help you plan the perfect lifestyle session that captures the habits of your littles.
I offer a range of outdoor sessions for littles which include getting dressed up like super heroes or a trip out to practice their skateboarding skills. Location sessions are designed around your littles favourite activities allowing them to be busy and have tons of fun.
With the all white studio we will start off by choosing your family colour so that we can co-ordinator your family wardrobe. If you would like we can add on some fun props and balloons, or if you would prefer the more posed session simply let me know. Family studio sessions can also be set up for fun activities such as pillow fights. The all white studio session puts all the focus on your little family.
Lifestyle sessions are at home relaxed and fun involving an activity to keep your family entertained. Whether you would like to do Sunday morning pancakes, or Friday night movies in a sheet fort, we can plan the perfect session just for your family. Lifestyle sessions are prompted sessions and not posed sessions. They are perfect for creating a yearly album of your family interacting together.
Location sessions can be crazy and fun, or they can be more formal and posed. You can choose between an activity the whole family can join in on, or you can choose to get dressed up like you are attending a grand ball and we can head off to some beautiful locations for the perfect backdrop.
In studio sessions are perfect for little pamper and pick me up. Get dressed up in something formal, pop the champagne and if it is your birthday have an adult cake smash. Whether you would like something fun or something elegant let me know and we can plan something that ensure you leave feeling confident and gorgeous.
Let us plan the perfect location session for you. Make up and hair styling is a must. Wardrobe can vary from casual and fun, to elegant and formal. Once we have the little details sorted we can choose the perfect landscape back drop for you. For the more casual and fun I would recommend rooftops, coffee shops and fun parks. For the more formal I recommend a dramatic mountain scape or desert feel. Sunsets on a rooftop are always a winner.
In studio sessions can be light, fresh and fun with pillow fights or fancy dress. Together we can plan and style the perfect studio session for you. In studio sessions also include gentle couples boudoir sessions for those looking for a slightly more intimate studio session.
Moved into a new home? Got a new fur baby? Renovated the kitchen? Want to have a food fight? All are perfectly good excuses to have a lifestyle couple session that will capture and celebrate your fun loving couples moments and milestones at home.
Tell me what your thing is, as a couple. Do you like to go hiking in the mountains? Sunday rides in a classic car, or go for a game of bowls? We can choose one of your favourite couples outdoor activities - eating pizza in your favourite restaurant is also a favourite amongst couple activities. If you would prefer getting dressed up to the nines in a gorgeous dress and put your partner in their smartest suit and travel off to one of the countries amazing landscape back drops just let me know because I am always up for a road trip and have a list of epic landscape spots all over the country.
Join me in studio for a natural light, relaxed and fun boudoir session. Spoil yourself with a bit of pampering with our make up artist and add some soft curls to your hair. I will assist you in choosing the best lingerie or outfit combinations for your session, guide throughout with full posing that is designed to make you look super sexy no matter your dress size or confidence level. Boudoir is where I started my photography career and where I have the most fun watching my ladies transform into confident sensual ladies during their shoot. Don't waste your make up and lingerie for the day so plan a date night with your partner or a girls night out on the town.
At home sessions are designed to help you feel more at ease as you know your space and are automatically comfortable from the start. At home sessions can include kitchen, lounge and shower sets to add to your album. I have plenty of suggestions on how to send your partner your at home boudoir photos one by one that will get him cooking dinner and running the bubble bath for you.
Product sessions are available in studio on weekdays only. Studio sessions allow for the all white background details shots that are used for online shopping. Products can be delivered to studio in Midrand and collected on completion of your shoot. 3 images will be provided per product. Styled product sessions are available for clothing, toy and general products that would prefer images for their social media portfolio. 3 images per item will be provided per product. Product sessions need to be booked in advance preferably with 1 month notice for static product, and minimum 2 months ahead should you require models and sets.
Event planners, florists, make up artists and other artists that require detail photos of their products, team at work and on location set ups will need to book their sessions 2 months ahead to ensure I have travel time and dates available. Detail shoots are perfect for social media content, website and email content.
Weddings I say yes to...
Straight couples, same sex couples, mixed race couples, foreign couples, traditional weddings (African, Asian, Indian and Caucasian). Weddings that are on a farm, in the mountains, in a forest, on a beach or in some strange spot I have never heard of in South Africa somewhere. Weddings in a church, elopements, court weddings, at home weddings and big ceremony weddings. Relaxed and happy couples, any wedding that encourages lots of dancing, and to couples that plan every single detail, couples with tattoos and couples without. If your wedding is 7am to 7pm then an even bigger yes and if you have a two day wedding then double yes!
