sweet, organic moments that turn into memories far before you're ready
Love is paying attention to the little things...
Slicing watermelon near the shore.
Kissing away tears after a stumble.
Sticky little hands reaching up to be held.
Uncontrollable belly laughs.
Running through the sprinklers in summer.
Puppy licks on chubby cheeks.
Silly dancing at sunset.
Blanket forts in the living room.
Hot chocolates in the salty coastal air.
I want what we create together to recollect real memories from a time and place you'll cherish.
Are you early birds who chase the sunrise?
Do you love lazy afternoon picnics? Is your home the most important space to you?
I'll ask what your family loves most and incorporate that into our session.
These sessions are all about creating a space where connection + joy can flourish at home or in the wild.
Whether you're wanting to capture the last snuggly year of your firstborn as they grow more independent, simply wishing to document an afternoon of pasta-making at Nonna's, or just adopted 3 adorable furbabies, I'm here to preserve some of the everyday magic that makes up our lives.

Where will we go for our session?
How can we book a session?
I'm based in beautiful Coromandel Valley which has allowed me to frequently explore the gorgeous southern coastlines, forests & fields that SA has to offer. Upon booking I share my very favourite locations for you to choose from. I also love in-home sessions if that's your jam!
I open my calendar 6 months in advance, where a $200 retainer will secure your booking. This will go towards the final balance which will be due a week prior to our session. By completing this step, it is understood that the booking retainer reserves a date and time for your session and is nonrefundable/transferrable.
When will our session take place?
What should we wear?
Soft tones like neutrals, linens, pastels, & textures photograph wonderfully and work well with my editing style.
It's best to avoid polo shirts, large prints, logos, & busy patterns.
Large watches & jewellery can also be distracting.
Remember, if you feel good- you'll look great!
Wear what makes you feel comfy and confident :)
Family sessions are scheduled during golden hour (either the first hour just after sunrise or a little over an hour before sunset).
This lighting is warm, dreamy, and free of harsh shadows or squinty eyes.
Sunrise/Sunset times are constantly changing year round so we will work with what the light is doing for your scheduled date.
Turnaround time for delivery of your gallery is 3-4 weeks.
