They grow up so fast. One minute they're angelic little babies, uttering their first words and taking their first steps. Before you know it, it's all weekend sports and battles over homework (or is that just my boys?).
Before you know it, they're as tall as you are, and then they're fully grown and out into the world. Every once in a while it's important to document your family as they are, right now, because it's not going to stay this way for long.
A family shoot is the perfect way to capture a snapshot of your family unit and get some epic photos, large or small, to display around your home.
The session fee is $195, after the shoot you can select one of three Collections listed below.
For the last thirteen years I've shot hundreds of weddings in South Australia, around the country, and across the globe and I bloody love it. What I've discovered is that it's not the weddings themselves that I find interesting to photograph, it's the people at them, the connections between them and the moments they share.
Alongside my weddings I've also been shooting family sessions on the down low......
Hi, I'm Simon, father of two, husband of one.

....... using the same techniques I use at weddings to put people at ease, draw out a genuine smile and make sure everyone has an incredibly fun experience.
I believe it's important for kids to see photos of themselves and their family on their walls at home, as a constant reminder that despite the chaos of every day life, family is still the most important thing.
I have designed these sessions to be quick and fun for everyone, whilst working meticulously to ensure we get gorgeous photos of everyone. For your kids, it will feel like a big game, for you, a chance to relax and be assured that there will be plenty of amazing pics for you to print and display. Maybe it's an elegant 8x10 in a black and white frame on your front hall table, a Christmas card for your grandparents and overseas friends, or a monster canvas print above your sofa.

Shoots generally last between 30 and 60 minutes. Kids have short attention spans. I've found that the best photos are generally towards the start of the session when they're full of beans and bursting with energy. No one wants photos of the inevitable meltdown later on.
The $195 includes pre-shoot planning, the shoot itself, and the editing of the photos and preparation of the Preview Slideshow. The files, prints and products are available for purchase in one of the three Collections listed above.
Some light rain and brooding skies makes for magical photos.... heavy rain and muddy feet, not so much. If the weather is looking questionable I will be in touch the night before to advise what the plan is. A reschedule may be required, if we can't find a suitable date your session fee will be refunded in full.
If the shoot cannot go ahead on account of COVID we will reschedule it to a new date. If we are unable to find a date that works for everyone your session fee will be refunded in full.
That's really more of a comment than a question, but I'll go with it :)
I've got plenty of tricks up my sleeve to bring the best out of your kids - I've been shooting kids for many years, including two of my own. Your only job on the day is to have fun with your little ones, leave the rest to me.
Your gallery is connected to an online store that sells a range of beautiful prints, canvases, enlargements and more. Every collection comes with store credit to get you started.
