Every collection includes an 8"x10" classic display frame, professionally edited and printed images and high resolution digitals

What else do you need to know?

Your session fee reserves your appointment and contributes towards my time for photographing your family, editing your images, and preparing your gallery for viewing

Allow 2 hours for Petite and Simply Authentic sessions and 4 hours for Grand Sessions. This is particularly important for newborn and baby sessions where I take a baby-led approach with plenty of time for feeding and cuddles

I will  share some images online so you can show your friends and family while you wait for the full gallery, and will invite you to return or your viewing appointment at my studio to choose your favourites and take them home

Choose your framed wall art

Most of my clients select at least one large piece of framed wall art and some smaller framed images for themselves and grandparents. I have examples and frame samples in the studio for you to see and touch and can help you decide how and what to frame


I take all of the hassle out of organising wall art and will deliver it to you ready to be hung. If you like, I can even introduce you to my own portrait hanger who will ensure your artwork is hung with precision, safely and securely. Simple and perfect - exactly what busy parents need!  

The classic frame included with all collections is handmade wood and available in your choice of four colours: white, black, rimu stain and mocha stain. This can be upgraded to a larger size or more ornate frame choice. Albums are also available

All of my frames include the highest quality glass to ensure your images are viewed at their best. I primarily use Conservation Reflection Control glass in most of my frames, which scatters and diffuses the light to reduce unwanted glare. While I would always caution you not to hang a frame in direct sunshine, this glass also contains 99% UV protection
