Your portraits will be created using natural light. Sunlight and its reflections, have an authentic, timeless and fresh feel that is true to your essence.  Opting for natural light is the most enchanting and flattering way to capture your genuine self and that of your loved ones.

Who is this photographer when she’s not busy taking photos or up to her ears in edits?
We chat on the phone and I will learn all about your family. I want to know the names and ages of those that will be at the session. I also like to know their interests so that I can connect with the kids during the experience..
We choose a date, time and place for your photo session together. We will discuss your clothing and any other expectations or requests that you may have.
The day of the session, I ask that you arrive on time with your smiles ready. Plan for 1-2 hours of a relaxing and fun experience. I will help guide you through the experience to ensure beautiful artwork is created for your home.
Canvas, Metal, Bamboo & Acrylic,
You will be presented with a slideshow put to the music of all of the viable photos. From there, you will choose your favourites and decide which medium you would like to print on: canvas, metal, bamboo or acrylic. You can also choose to add on an album or gift prints.
Last but not least, everything is created, edited and ordered. When it arrives I will arrange to deliver your art. My business expands by referral. I humbly request a review after the delivery and this fosters the growth of my client community.
