SHARE AND RELIVE YOUR STORIES WITH YOUR LOVED ONES
"How would I like to enjoy my photos?"
You haven't printed any of your photos for ages. And you never got around to hang any up the wall either. If you only had more time or would know where to start! It makes you feel being overwhelmed and guilty. And what about yourself - have you been in any photos with your children? For your children? Ah, I see, you don't feel like it right now for ages because you want to lose just a few more kilos.
But, let me tell you something: Your children love you how you are and for who you are. Seeing family photos daily, children get the message 'that is our family and we are all important to another. It says 'we love you, we care about you. You are important.'
Holding a finished family photobook in our hands brings us endless joy and conversation starters. The kids love sharing their stories. They get to see their life journey, understand their place in the family and feel deeply connected. For myself, I love the process of gathering the photos and putting them into order a tangible beautiful photo book for us to touch, hold and marvel about. Over and over again. I'd love for you to have the same wonderful experience.

FAQ (frequently asked questions)
HOW TO WE BOOK WITH YOU?
Session Fee. A signed contract and a $150 retainer (session fee) are required in order to save your session date. The session fee covers an 8x10 framed print for you. Any other products or digital files are available in addition.
Rescheduling. We would like your children to feel at their best. If your child is not feeling right or sick, please get in touch and we will arrange for one other day. I appreciate you keeping a sick child to yourself. Vice versa I would reschedule if I am sick in order to not pass anything on to your family.
HOW CAN WE PREPARE FOR A SESSION?
After we met and discussed ideas, a session plan is set. This evolves around family activities or daily routines and locations meaningful to you. Your home does not need to be tidy and meticulous everywhere, but I may push away bits and pieces, which would otherwise only distract in the photo. Please wear whatever you and your family feel comfortable in. Clothes should rather complement than match. However, for some formal portraits, clothes with big logos would only be distracting.
HOW LONG DOES A SESSION TAKE?
Usually between 1 and 2 hours. We allow for enough time to relax, chat and giggle or wind down. My best practice is, the better we are prepared and organised, the smoother the event. I love creating a session plan and throw it overboard as usually nothing goes to plan.
HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL WE GET AND WHEN?
You will get around 50 to 75 curated digital photographs (or about 150 for an extended family session), some set in black and white. These photographs will be presented to you in a private online gallery.
You will get a link to your private online gallery within three days of your session. Your gallery will be open to you for 30 days. From there you can take your time and choose which digital photographs or frames or prints you wish to purchase.
if you had a photographer aka friend, who knows your pain points, organises your sessions around your needs and puts you in the picture beautifully. All you need to do is, get in touch, have a wonderful time, enjoy your photographs readily printed, framed, photobook-ed. Enjoy. Repeat.
