AUCKLAND maternity, newborn, family and wedding photographer
Based in Auckland
Questions and answers
Where are you based out of and how far do you travel?
I'm based in North Shore, Auckland City, and I am always down to travel! I'll travel the world! For all weddings and photo sessions in Auckland City, travel is included. If you live outside of Auckland, I add in travel by train, car, or plane onto the final payment. If your event requires an overnight stay, an additional charge for a hotel will also be added.
Okay but what if we suck at posing??
So often my clients come to me saying "oh, we're so awkward in front of a camera, we are camera shy". Here's the news: absolutely nobody knows what to do in front of a camera. But that's where the magic comes in.
First thing I tell my clients is "Do whatever but don't look in camera and say cheese". I'm not out here to capture you in stiff, forced poses. I'm here to create moments with you so we can capture FEELINGS. And those kinds of moments are what I'm here to document so you can remember them forever. So deep breaths. Don't worry, I'll direct you every step of the way so you never have to guess and you'll be shocked at how natural it will feel.
Do you provide wardrobe?
Yes for my I provide a huge range of gown for my maternity and portrait session clients. You can read more about my Client Wardrobe here.
What's your availability.
Photography is my passion turned business. My main profession is IT Business Analyst and I work full time. Yes - I work 5 days a week and shoot on weekends! Having said that, in special circumstances I do shoot on weekdays :) So again --- deep breaths!
What is your payment schedule?
Depends on session type. Usually, I require a 50% deposit to confirm the day and time of your session or wedding day. The remainder of the payment can be paid on the day of the event. However, I do offer payment plans on request. The final product is only provided once the payments have cleared.

Amber beautifully shot my 5 weeks old baby. She captured her lovely smile in just an hour which I could not in whole 5 weeks. lol. She was very comfortable with the baby.
We also got a family photoshoot done which we thoroughly enjoyed.
