I love to exchange services, goods or artworks for my family keepsake work, so get in touch and start a conversation and let’s see if we can work something out.

Step 1: Session Fee:

All sessions attract a $350 donation to the Australian Wildlife Conservancy, in order to confirm your session date (yes, you are able to claim a tax deduction on your donation).

Learn more about the Australian Wildlife Conservancy.

Photo sessions last around 1 to 2 hours, at your home or any location you choose (I can help select somewhere perfect), to document the heart of your family, and are suitable for families, couples, newborns, maternity, babies, families with pets, or extended families. Final gallery size will depend on your session, and family needs, however you should anticipate receiving upwards of 60 photos from your family photography session.

-All my family and newborn photographs are captured on120mm and 35mm traditional analogue film, for a dreamy, timeless fine art look, exquisite colour and sublime printing. Negatives are processed and scanned into digital negatives by Australia’s premier film and print lab.

Why invest in family or newborn lifestyle photography?


What do you value most in the world?

Fashun? Coffee? Smashed avo breakfasts? Make-up and haircuts? Dinners out? Catching every big release movie 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? In situations that threaten their homes, most people seek first to save their photos, not their flat screen tv or other replaceable items that often cost as much, or more.

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.
