Story Session | Family Film + Photos: $2950
A family film is the ultimate keepsake for your family. It's pressing pause on this one day to record your family's memories and have the ability to replay them any time that you like. It is the most incredible gift you could give your children, and yourself. In 30 years from now, this will be your family's most treasured possession. Think of me as a family member coming over to hang out who just happened to bring their camera along too. I won’t be shooting the whole time, rather picking moments to document as I see them. Expect lots of tears and laughs afterwards when you get to see just how wonderful your life together is through a whole new perspective. Ideal for the family that wants to remember all the nuances of everyday life, and celebrates the importance of the here and now. Included in your session fee is a phone consult with me to plan your session around what’s the most meaningful to you. If you love the idea of capturing real, authentic moments of this season in your life, then this is the session for you.

+ 1. What happens after I book?
After you book your session, then I send you a questionnaire and we get on the phone to chat. Included in your session fee is a phone consult with me to plan your session around what’s the most meaningful to you. I’ll ask you questions that will give me details I need to know about your family, and help you decide what parts of your everyday life you want to capture in a film. The responses I’ve had from clients I’ve worked with before is that the kids cry when they watch their film almost as much as the parents do. It is an investment you’ll never regret making. It’s the story of your family, through the lens of a mother who feels as deeply as you do that time is slipping away too quickly.
+ 2. Why book a film + photo session?
Because in 30 years from now, your children deserve to have a glimpse of what everyday life was like when they were little. Because in 30 years from now, YOU deserve to be reminded of how far you’ve come, and how much of yourself you gave to your kids. Exploring nature, braiding unruly hair, cooking meals together, snuggling in bed, kissing imaginary bruises, washing tiny babies, building forts in the lounge room, playing, and living together as a family. These are all the things that make up the magic of childhood and deserve to be documented and treasured for forever and ever.
+ 3. What will the session be like? We've only done family photo sessions in the past, will it be like that?
I capture moments naturally as they unfold, and although it might feel a little weird at first having me there while you go about your normal life I promise you'll get comfortable quickly. With video, it's easiest for everyone if we make a plan for your session together beforehand, and then you take the lead by just doing your thing together while I shoot what organically unfolds. But don't worry only the very best, most important moments will end up in the completed film. It won't be a montage of your child's temper tantrums (unless you want that! Although I'm guessing you don't). I'm less like a photographer asking you to smile at the camera, and more like a friend hanging out with you who just happened to bring their camera along. The best part about that is, there's no pressure for the kids to behave or look perfect. You can simply relax and be yourselves, and leave the rest to me. For moving portrait and keepsake sessions, I do give a little bit more guidance, especially if there's specific audio that you want to capture.
+ 4. We are so keen to invest in this, but money is a little tight. Can we arrange a payment plan?
Of course! I completely understand that's a large investment for most families. I can set up a payment plan custom to your needs. Get in touch and we can work out the details.
+ 5. Do you do extended family sessions?
No, unfortunately I'm not able to accomodate extended families or large group bookings at this time.
+ 6. Do you do weddings?
Only very occasionally. Get in touch for a price list if you're interested in booking me to document your wedding.
