The best times for sessions on location are during the morning or late afternoon. The bright light of a sunny day isn’t ideal for photography. While it is beautiful, it unfortunately makes most people squint. Children photograph best in a familiar environment, or one that they are free to explore, run and play in. Family shoots can be done at any location of your choosing within the Rockhampton, Gracemere & Yeppoon areas. Parents are involved in all shoots and are sometimes asked to join in on the goofiness because what child can resist laughing at their parents being silly?

If the session is at your home, I will need to wander around first to discover the ultimate setting with the best natural light available. Don’t worry about your house being untidy!

I know that sometimes children can take a while to warm up. That’s okay, I’m in no hurry.  I will give you as much direction as you need and I will occasionally give direction that might seem a little on the strange side, but trust me! You will be pleasantly surprised. I will do a mixture of shots with some posed, but the majority of photos will be you doing what you do best: being yourselves.

Please feel free to bring in any props of your own that reflect your child’s or your personality including hats, jewellery, toys, musical instruments, fairy wings etc. Whatever your children love, I am happy to photograph them with it. Every family is different and I will endeavor to capture the love and beauty that makes your family one of a kind.

If you have young children I suggest to bring their favourite toy or something to amuse them. I also like to suggest bringing a family friend along that can help get the children smiling and laughing. If you are not sure on what to wear to your session, check out the What To Wear? page.

Also don’t forget the pets! They are apart of my family so I always encourage you to bring your own furry friends to your family session.
