THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THINGS IN LIFE
Are not just things. They are people and places and memories and photographs. They are feelings and moments and laughter and smiles...
EXIST IN PHOTOGRAPHS
Time is forever fleeting and I understand the need to create tangible memories for you and your children to hold on to.
WHAT KAREN SAYS
"Oh my goodness Jeannine, you are amazing!! I absolute LOVE our photos! Your passion shows through in the photos and you incredibly captured the atmosphere on that day. Thank you so so much. I will definitely recommend you to everyone. I've loved dealing with you, from our original communications, our photo-session and now the incredible photos you have delivered. The best."
AROUND YOUR SESSION
I love my families to get a balanced mix of some posed and mostly relaxed photographs. By knowing my families, I will be able to create opportunities for fun and playful interactions, cuddly moments and beautiful connections between them. I observe and document, ultimately, being able to show you who you are, not only how you look like. It's a blend of documentary and lifestyle photography.

WHAT ROWAN SAYS
"We had a family photo session with Jeannine on New Brighton beach. We basically just went and had a family play around the beach, playing with the kids and having fun. Before long, you didn't even realise Jeannine was there taking photos. It was effortless and natural. We finished off with some staged photos by which time everyone was feeling relaxed and happy. The results are fantastic. Thank you so much, Jeannine."
WHAT LISA SAYS
"Our treasured collection of photos reflects our relaxed and enjoyable photo session. Jeannine expertly captured a sense of spontaneity, which shines through the outstanding quality of the photos and album."
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.
