"The memories we make with our families is everything"

- Candance Cameron Bure

Have you and your family ever been somewhere like the beach or park having a blast and thought "I wish I could capture these moments"? Well, with our lifestyle photography, those moments can be captured in all their glorious & beauty. The smiles, the laughs, that raw emotion and unconditional love laid bare! This is the kind of work I thrive to capture.

These sessions are about you, as a family, playing and enjoying your time together, as a family. Whether you enjoy sand castle building down the beach time,  swing pushing at the park or reading the little ones stories under the outdoor tree in the garden. I love freezing these moments as pictures which then tell a story about your family.

So, how are these sessions different to a normal portrait session?

The biggest different between the two types is lifestyle sessions involve no posing what so ever. I try not to do too much posing within portrait sessions. Natural, candid shots are always better! There maybe a little bit of direction but very minimal interference. Pretend I am not even there.


As I said above. The session are based either at your home, the beach, a river, park or a favourite walk. Depending on the package you go with, it could be a choice of two places. The two options to choose from are:

Package One: $320

  • One hour home or location shoot within Christchurch area

  • 25 re-touched digital images on a USB

Package Two: $400

  • Two hour home and/or location shoot within Christchurch area

  • 50 re-touched digital images on USB

Let me freeze those family moments for you to forever look bad on....
