bookings

Please make contact to discuss availability. A session fee of $175 is required to secure all bookings - this fee includes a telephone consultation a week prior to your shoot. 

location

I am located in Northern suburbs of Brisbane, servicing the greater Brisbane and Moreton Bay regions. While sessions can take place at your home, I will always recommend open, outdoor locations - beaches and parklands not only provide cleaner backgrounds but make the experience far more enjoyable. 

travel

Travel within 45 minutes of the Brisbane CBD is absorbed into session pricing. Further travel by negotiation - additional fees may be incurred

time

While your little person's routine will always be taken into account, I aim to schedule sessions late in the afternoon in order to work with best available light. That said, have no concerns about overcast conditions. Soft, beautifully balanced light is both subject and photographer's friend.

 

Please allow 1-2 hours.

style

I have an extensive history as a photojournalist and travel with the belief that photographs should capture a moment. I would best describe my children portraiture as candid yet controlled, balanced yet minimalist - less is most often more. 

what to wear

While I leave styling choices to parents, I will say that neutral, block colours and/or subtle patterns photograph very well - please feel free travel with clothing options which will introduce variety. Furthermore, I would absolutely encourage (where appropriate) playful canine companions.

I have long been loyal to Nikon and currently work with 45 MP D850 bodies and professional grade prime and zoom lenses ranging from 16-400mm - image quality is assured.

weddings

To be transparent, I am not a wedding photographer. My career has traveled a photojournalism path - I know my own strengths. And, weaknesses.

That said, I am a documentary photographer with a strong appreciation of visual story telling and will, by request, photograph a maximum of ten weddings annually as a second photographer. 

While I will liaise with your primary photographer, I will work independently whilst not interfering with their workflow.
