Smile! offers a playful and happy approach to your special day, entwined with capturing those special little moments of tears, giggles and loving looks. I use a definite mix of candid and styled photography, capturing all the detail you’ve spent months designing. Just enjoy your day, I’ll help you relax in front of the camera while I record those real and wonderful emotions. The magic continues in post production where I spend many hours creating breath-taking images that ensure your images have that ‘wow’ factor.
I am available throughout Perth, the South-West, WA and Australia, as well as Internationally for wedding commissions.
I only take a limited number of weddings each year to ensure that I can deliver highly personalised service.
Kids love Smile! Portrait sessions. I’ll play lots of games and interact with your child, to make the experience fun. Amongst the craziness of the shoot, I’ll also use a bit of Spider[wo]man stealth to capture those gorgeous and real expressions. You’ll wonder how I managed it!
No need to leave your fur baby at home, I welcome the opportunity to capture the furry, scaly and feathery in your family! Armed with treats, and my own special brand of crazy noises, I’ll have your beloved pet head tilting and eating out of my hand, literally! Most importantly you’ll receive many candid creations filled with the love you and your pet share.
Loved up lingering looks or playful and fun, I strive to capture those fleeting and wonderful moments you both share. Feel comfortable to be yourselves, like you’re chatting with a friend, as I delicately capture your story.
Raw, real, emotive and natural! Fresh 48 Sessions capture those amazing first moments of your baby’s life. It’s those first hours or days of life, when you’re getting to know the little person you’ve been so anxious to meet. These times hold so many wonderful expressions of love that shine from you when your baby makes a little noise or squishes up their gorgeous face. Pure magic! This is not a widely practiced form of photography so it’s such a privilege to be involved in your life at this emotional and beautiful time.
You may be unsure about when to arrange your Fresh 48 Session, since Bub could arrive any day! The best way to book in is let me know your due date, then no matter when your little one comes along, we organise a time within a day or two (sometimes three if you are in a private hospital, so technically a Fresh 72!!). I’ll come to the place of birth and photograph your family getting to know each other whilst in that wonderful bubble of new love.
