Telling your family story – in pictures
Families should be celebrated, not just at weddings and big events, but by seeing the beauty in the everyday. Of your everyday.
What is your family story? What brings you together? Which memories do you cherish the most? What makes you laugh?
These are the beginnings of photography from the heart. Photography that means something to you, that you will love and share and smile every time you see those images.
So, what does a typical portrait session entail? Firstly, choose a location, this is usually your home or a place that is special to you. Your photo session will be unique, relaxed and 100% fun. Your photos will be natural and authentic to you. You can be as calm and quiet or wild and energetic as you like. Whatever energy your family brings with be perfectly you.
What does a family photo shoot cost? Your sitting fee is $190 which covers your time with me for your 1-2 hour portrait session and is payable on booking to reserve your session date. Prints start at $120 and go up from there.
The sitting fee is non-refundable, however can be transferred to an alternative date. You will be able to select from a range of gorgeous finished photography products to display your favourite images and enjoy them forever!
There is no minimum spend, only buy what you love.
Things to consider when preparing for your portraits:
* Natural light is best in the early and late parts of the day, so take full advantage of this, outdoor shoots are usually early morning or late afternoon.
* Choose clothing that doesn’t distract from your lovely faces. Its best to avoid large text or logos on clothing all together. Dress in something you feel really comfortable in, especially for kids. You can be as calm and quiet or wild and energetic as you like. Whatever energy your family brings with be perfectly you.
* No props peeps – Your family is pretty wonderful just as you are. There’s no need for distracting props or anything too fancy to create great photos. It’s YOU that makes the photos great, so lets not get in the way of that.

“Gemma, You are a star!!! When we gave mum her portrait, she was absolutely lost for words, then said how beautiful they all looked and then cried!!
Obviously it was the perfect present.”
“Being a mum, it is so hard to get a decent photo of you and your child. This is when I decided to enlist Gemma’s help for my little one’s first birthday party.
Gemma gave us great direction and captured the mood of the party perfectly. I am so thankful that I selected the right photographer. If I ever need a photographer, she will be the one and only one who I will choose.”

“With two camera-shy adults, a head-strong preschooler and a baby, I was hoping our time with you would produce perhaps one or two ‘keepers’.
I was thrilled to find that there are a great many!! Your professionalism and friendly sense of humor helped us to feel relaxed and we had a lovely time. You gave suggestions and guidance without being pushy and without losing the spontaneity of the moment.
A special time in my family’s history has been captured – we now have beautiful photos that we can enjoy forever. Thank you, Gemma!! xx”
