Family Sessions

Your family session should be a a time when you can fully enjoy each other's company and have fun. While I will give some gentle direction on posing, your time will be centered around you spending time together. Your session will be a fun and relaxing time for you to play with your children, enjoying the quiet cuddles, natural smiles and giggles, allowing me to capture the genuine moments and love within your family unit.

Your session will include:

  • 1-1.5 hour session

  • 20 high resolution digital photographs - a selection of colour and black and white

  • The option to upgrade your gallery at an additional cost


What to Wear

Neutral colours are best. Try to avoid logos and images, large stripes and bright colours. Your family's clothing doesn't have to match, but try to pick neutral tones that go well together. Consider the location and season - for example, lighter tones work great for a summer beach setting - pastel colours, cream, blush and tan, compared to an autumn location in amongst the trees or a grassy field, which would suit darker tones such as mustard, olive green and brown or rustic tones. Layering with a knitted jumper, scarf or a hat can work well to add another dimension to your autumn/winter sessions. Be mindful of chunky watches and jewellery - sometimes these can take the focus away from the people, and try to select suitable footwear.


We are fortunate in the Waikato to have many beautiful locations available to us across the different seasons. The locations of your photographs is a personal choice and depends on the setting you would like - the beach, trees, long grass, or you may even want photos at your own home. The time of day also depends on the location and the look you're wanting to achieve. The beach at sunset provides a beautiful golden light, but natural window lighting in your own home can also work to achieve a beautiful look.

Let's work together!
