Getting family photos done is becoming more popular. Photographers are becoming very popular, some are amazing, some not so, some are expensive, some are less expensive. It’s a minefield. Ask for a recommendation for a photographer and you will be given around 100 different answers.
So how do you choose?
I saw someone once request a recommendation for a photographer who was ‘decent, not cheap’… can you not be decent and cheap?
I aim to be affordable. I don’t want to make lots of money off of one photo session. I like repeat custom. I like customers who come back to me.
I want to photograph the engagement, the wedding, the pregnancy, the newborn, the 1st birthday cake smash, all the way through to baby number 2 or 18th birthdays.
I don’t pack my diary full so you have to squeeze into a 1/2 hour time slot. What if the baby is grizzly? What if your toddler just won’t keep still? I put aside extra time per session in case it needs to run over, at no extra cost.
I am open to suggestions and ideas. These are your images. Get on Pinterest, bombard me with photos and poses you’d like to try.
I love lifestyle photography. My favourite photos to take are of people being people, interacting with each other.
I don’t offer prints and canvasses as part of the original package because that’s how costs start creeping up. But I will offer as an after service so you can take the time to choose your prints and I will order them from the places I use, direct to your door.
I don’t hold your images hostage. If I’ve taken 100 great photos and I’ve taken the time to edit them then you are entitled to every single one of them.
I am not magic, if your partners/children do not wish to get their photos taken there is very little I can do to change that. I will certainly try my best. Bribery tends to work, bring sweets!
