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? You like having your photos in a beautiful photo book? Another passion of mine.

Carolyn, Wanaka | Extended Family Photo Session

"You were so organized 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. We love our photos which we got up on our wall and enjoy daily."

What is your style and approach?

I love for you to get a balanced mix of some posed and mostly relaxed and authentic photographs. Where possible. I understand, you gather with your loved ones and your time is precious. According to our initial communication I will aim to keep the posed photos short and sweet. You decide whether I should stay around to capture the atmosphere and personalities of your family members. With your session fee comes a framed photograph of your choice. I wish for you to have a beautiful photograph ready to display. You can choose to get a photo book of your day, which is an additional service I would love to provide.

How do we book with you?

I'll email you a contract and a payment link for the $200 retainer (session fee). Just follow the instructions and we are good to go.

How can we prepare for our photo session?

That is not about a session but about your family gathering. I'll just need your wishes and expectations at our initial meeting or call. You are probably all dressed up nicely anyway. Just be yourselves. I will guide you through the posed portraits, so you can soon relax and enjoy your get together again.

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 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 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.

I got you. Me too. I needed half a bottle of bubbles to feel relaxed at my family photo session. 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.

How long does a session take?

Well, that depends how many family members there are and how many group photos you wish to get. Let's say one hour. If you wish to get more candid photos, then add another hour.
