Digital packages are available starting from 1200.

No purchasing decisions (other than payment of the session fee) are made until clients have viewed their online proof gallery, featuring all fully edited images from their session.

There is no minimum purchase amount, no high pressure studio sales tactics, and all product selection is conducted online in the comfort of your own home (although clients who prefer to are most welcome to view artisan products in person in my home studio). Most clients select one of 5 unique digital packages, and also receive a referral to Melbourne's highest quality printer and framer. Individual prints, framed and unframed, as well as canvas and custom products such as heirloom albums are available, with prices starting at 100 per 5x7in print, and a price list is available upon request. Wall arrangement design services are of course offered to those clients who prefer to purchase wall art.

Full package pricing available upon request, just drop me a line!

What do you value most in the world?

Fashion? Coffee? Smashed avo breakfasts? Nike? Make-up and haircuts? Dinners out? Catching the latest Star Wars flick the minute it comes out at the cinema? The latest hand-held devices, obsolete almost as soon as we get them home?

Probably not. But stop and think for a second what you may have spent on those items over the last year or two.

Sobering, huh? And even more food for thought, how long does the enjoyment of those things, lovely as they are, last?

There is sometimes this misconception that photography, and particularly family photography, is expensive or frivolous, or a luxury item for those lucky few without mortgages and bills to pay. But the truth is, we choose what 'luxury' means to us, we choose what is most important to our own family. Advertisements are always telling us how we should spend our money, but if we really stop to think about what we value, might we choose differently? 

The photographs above are from the pages of an album which will bring those beautiful girls joy for the rest of their lives. Those little poppets are now big sisters (to twins!!), and these are some of the memories of their 'once-upon-a-time', when they were the littles of the house, when they were a whole world, when afternoons snuggling on beds rolled on forever in the land before school. For not much more than the cost of a new iphone, which will last a couple of years, maybe.

It's not what it costs that matters the most, although of course that matters; it's what that money will mean to us, long after it's spent.
