the family experience

You want to;
  • Hang gorgeous art on your walls
  • Gift photos to grandparents
  • And most importantly freeze the age and stage your kids are at now so you can revisit at anytime. 
You have to;
  • Organise - time, date, outfits
  • And then the photographer doesn't really 'get' you! So everyone complains
  • You end up with photo but not the ones you have been dreaming of!

The Family Process

Or you can spare yourself the unnecessary stress and

when it comes to family photography you have a few options

You could have a family friend snap a few photos, or do what you usually do and take them yourself with your phone (Moms I know it is always you that isn't in the photos - and no, we are not counting the funny selfies). 

Or you could head to mall and use a cookie cutter photographer that has already done 20 other families that day.  Stand in lines, and make do with what they come up with at the end of the awkward session.  

Hire a photographer that will tailor your session to your unique family. A photographer you know and trust with 5 years of photography, and 100 + sessions under her belt.

here's a reminder of what you will experience

the fun

i am also a mum and i'm trying to soak up as much of my kids as possible. therefore my session availability is limited. 

The best of the best! I was late to the game booking Christmas card photos this year and Claire was able to accommodate me within the week. She was so genuine and sweet and captured my family so authentically. I have an almost 1 year old son and she was so great with him. She got lots of pics very quickly so we finished before he got restless. I got my gallery in half the time she quoted me which was the best surprise. I couldn’t pick a favorite because all of the photos were so amazing!
