So here we are. I know how this works – you’ve seen my photos, you love my style, you want to know HOW MUCH, and can you afford it? I get it – everyone has a budget to stick to.

Here’s the thing: I can tell you dollar amounts – but I cannot show you on here what it feels like to open an album, feel the crack of the beautiful, thick art pages, and know this heirloom will still be around for your great grand children to enjoy, long after you’re gone.

I can show you gorgeous images – but I can’t show you what it feels like to see YOUR photos, of YOUR family, uninhibited, real and raw – that you’ll cry, laugh, and everything in between.

I can give you figures – but I can’t show you how stunning YOUR photos will look on beautiful, museum grade fine art paper and in artisan crafted frames.

I can’t tell you that we will meet as strangers but we’ll part with a hug, like friends, because through meeting me you will gain some of your most treasured possessions – your memories, made tangible, in a form you will be able to pass on through the generations.

I can’t show or tell you any of these things, and they are essential for you to understand the value of what you will gain from a session with me.

So for now, this is what you need to know about your investment:

All sessions have a session fee that is payable by 7 days after booking. Session fees cover a pre-session in-person consultation with me, my time and talent on session day, and a personal ordering appointment.

Session fees are:

Families            Weekend session $250        Week day session $150

Business Portraits      Week day session $450 (weekends not available), includes two portraits.
(Head Shots)

(all pricing is ex GST)

Print products offered include a selection of albums, wall art, story boxes and digital files, as chosen by the client. These products are purchased separately and pricing starts at $270 plus GST and goes up from there. A minimum product purchase of $1000 plus GST applies for each session.
