You frolic with your precious family. I am here to capture you awesome lot. 

YOUR (big) FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER IN WANAKA

IMAGINE

It was already hard and dear enough to get everyone to Wanaka for your big family gathering or celebration. The last thing you want to do is to spend time and money finding a photographer. But think twice. You do not get together that often. Wouldn't it be priceless, to relax and fully enjoy your gathering and get this day or afternoon captured? I would love to be there for you. And because I know how time-consuming it can be to get photos printed and framed - you get one framed photograph of your choice. Maybe for your parents?

WHAT CAROLYN SAYS

"You were so organised in your plan that it was so easy for us to just chill and be called upon for our photos. We particularly liked how you helped us stand to relax.

FRENQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is your style and approach?


I love for you to get a balanced mix of some posed and mostly relaxed and authentic photographs. It is important to me to get to know your family before your session, so I can create a loose session plan which suits all your personalities and vibes. I will create opportunities for fun and playful interactions, cuddly moments and beautiful connections between all of you. I direct and guide you guys but also 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. And with your session fee comes a framed photograph of your choice. I wish for you to have a beautiful photograph ready to display. It's on me.




How do we book with you?


Session Fee. A signed contract and a $200 retainer (session fee) are required in order to save your session date. The session fee covers an 11x14 framed photograph for you. Any other products or digital files are available in addition.




How can we prepare for our photo session?


Just turn up and smile. Not quite. If you booked for a longer session where we capture the candid moments and the portraits, we will work on a loose session plan. My goal is to not disrupt the dynamics too much, but yet getting the connections. If you appoint one person to coordinate the group photos (like a MC at a wedding) or hand me a shotlist for the portraits prior to our session, that'll do and we get the group portraits done in no time. In terms of clothing, just think of what would go along with other fabrics or patterns. And what would you like to - or not - have displayed in framed family photos afterwards?




When and how many photographs will we get?


When you book a session with me, I am 100% yours and dedicate my time and creativity fully to you, your session and your photos. I'll get them curated and ready for you within three days. You will get between 75 and 150 curated digital photographs (depending on the size of the family), 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. One photograph (your choice) will be printed for you - or your parents - complimentary.




But I do not feel comfortable being in the photo.


Mama, I got you. Me too. I needed half a bottle of bubbles to feel relaxed. Whatever works for you. I am here to guide you and tell you how to move or pose in order for you to look relaxed and yet beautiful. The chin, the arms, ... I know. Trust me. PS: Your children love you in the photos - no matter what - they see your heart, your love and soul. But I'll do my best to make you see the same.




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. If you prefer just posed family portraits and would rather be undisturbed afterwards, it can be arranged very quick and efficient. However, if you feel like to get also more relaxed and documentary-style photographs of your precious family gathering, it can be arranged too. 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.
