Frequently Asked Questions
Where are you based?
I live in the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town
Can you travel for our shoot?
I often try and book a weekend of family shoots in JHB and will advertise these well in advance as the slots get booked-up quickly.
I travel to the UK to see family once a year and can also assist with photoshoots in and around Manchester and Chester.
For weddings, I can travel where needed – having a British passport helps a bit 😉
Do you offer albums?
I love creating albums for my clients, especially for weddings, and I offer this as an extension package for any shoot booked with me.
Do you take video too?
I don’t offer video for weddings but I am able to offer a video packages for families which focuses on creating beautiful film for you, with a few additional photos of our time together.
What if the weather is bad?
As an on-location photographer I am used to working in all types of weather conditions. The only times I will reschedule a session is when it is forecast for heavy rain or strong winds. I do ask you to be flexible on the day of your shoot as sometimes we may have to adjust the time we had planned to avoid a shower or two.
What if my kids don’t cooperate?
This is often a major concern for clients but honestly, there is no right or wrong way to behave. Preparing them beforehand and having props and comforting items on hand can really help put them at ease. Snacks are life-savers, you can never have too many of those!
One of the main reasons I love shooting outdoors is because it inspires kid’s to explore and be themselves. Nature often has a very calming affect on kids and gives them opportunity to let their unique personalities shine through.
If you’re really worried about whether I will be okay with your kids, I have two very active daughters of my own so I’ve got oodles of patience and understanding 😉
Do you have a studio?
I do, at my home, and I use it for toddler and children sitter sessions and brand photography. Click here to see some examples of the space.
What should we wear?
I will always send out info, with a booking form, on what to wear for a shoot because I do encourage you to put a little thought into it for the longevity of the photos.
I am also available on Whatsapp for clients to send clothing suggestions through to me for feedback.
With my photography, you’ll find authentically beautiful, sharp, emotive imagery that captures the heart and soul in a moment.
I love to combine both spontaneous emotion and posed moments to give my clients photos that they will treasure forever.
I try to be as candid and open at all my shoots, inviting my clients to do the same – I want you to leave a shoot feeling energized and happy. A photoshoot is never a chore, but a unique opportunity to connect.
