The photo session can take place either in my studio, in the comfort of your own home or an outdoor setting of your choice. As a mother of two, I understand that children are not always co-operative. It takes patience to photograph children. For this reason my sessions last between 1 to 2 hours. Sessions are not rushed and provide time for feedings, changes or just to let your children have a break to run around.


The key is to keep it simple, allowing focus to be on the individuals and not the clothing. I highly recommend solid colours with no stripes, polka dots or insignia. For the most natural look, casual dress is preferred. If families or children are being photographed together, clothes that are similar in style and color are best. Bare feet are preferred over shoes. Children also look great in bare skin, which is the preference for newborns and most children under the age of one. If you’re looking for something a little funkier, then by all means bring on the stripes, bold colours, hats and anything else you can think of! We can discuss this option upon booking. You will be provided with additional information on what to wear in order to assist you in your clothing choices.
