Family photography information

Family photography with me is all about capturing the magic in the every day things that your family loves to do together.

It’s about experiences, connections, and stories. The giggles, sparkly eyes, and quiet snuggles. Epic adventures and giant squeezy bear hugs. Real fun, real smiles :)

- Our pre-shoot phone consultation

- Photography session (approx 1 hour)

- Online gallery

- Full set of high resolution digital image downloads

About me

I live here in Christchurch, New Zealand, and have two boys/astronauts/dragons/adventurers of my own. I've been photographing weddings and families around NZ since 2008.


What’s the best location for our shoot?

I love to photograph families where they’re most comfortable. In places you love, doing things you love, with the people you love. So around your own home is absolutely perfect. If your family love spending time at a local park or somewhere else that’s special for you, then that can be an option too. We’ll chat about all this while we’re planning your session.

How long will our shoot take?

It varies with every family, but I find 1-1.5 hours is usually a great timeframe for family photography sessions. Longer day-in-the-life sessions are available too—I really love spending more time with families! Just ask and we'll talk details.

Can we do some posed group pictures with our family too?

Family sessions with me are all about capturing unposed real life moments and stories. I'm happy to incorporate a couple of quick ‘smile-at-the-camera’ shots too though if you request it.

We don’t live in Christchurch. Can you still photograph my family?

Yes! I can travel to photograph your family anywhere in New Zealand. Just ask for details and we’ll arrange something that works.
