Family sessions can be done outdoors or in my studio. I am available on both weekdays and weekends. Shoot Duration is 40-60 minutes depending on location choice.
What to expect with young kids
Kids cry, throw tantrums, don’t listen – don’t worry, this is perfectly normal – Photographing young kids is my specialty and I have been doing it for over a decade. I have a lot of tricks up my sleeve and a lot of patience. 90% of my photoshoots you see on my website go like this. You can see the results for yourself. Studio for kids aged 16 months – 3 years is generally not advised – they get bored and it's not fun.
Choosing a location
I have a list of specific locations I use that compliment my style of work. I have beach, park, forest and farm locations in both the Helderberg and Cape Town area. I show clients previous work at specific locations to help them to choose according to their personal taste and area of preference.
ALL outdoor shoots are done during the golden hour (approximately 1 hour before sunset)
Sessions can be booked anytime from 9:30AM – 3PM
(Best time with kids are when they are well rested with full tummies)
I offer styling advice as to which outfits to choose to get the best look for your photo shoot. I also have a collection of outfits and headbands available for use for young children (especially girls clothes) at no extra cost. Family can wear up to 2 outfits (except for beach – session is shorter due to light and not easy to change)
