One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well. ~Virginia Woolf
Keep it simple J Neutrals are best. No logos or Ben 10 branding puhleez. For young children – try to put them in clothing that speaks of them. Eg a little girl with her red shoes or a small boy wearing a hat he loves. Remember, the shoot is all about your family and the characters involved. Not about your clothing.
I generally prefer to shoot outside (on location) – usually at your home but could be in a forest, on a beach or even in my own beautiful garden on the river. I will arrive 10 minutes before the session time starts. We will relax and chat a bit, especially if there are kiddies who need to get comfortable having me around. I shoot for 45 minutes to about 2 hours.
With small children, I always suggest booking the longer sessions, as it takes some time to get them doing what they do naturally and not feeling like they have to “perform” in front of the photographer lady
“We thank you once again for blessing us with your talent. You captured the essence of our wedding our own imagination could not comprehend. Picture perfect memories we will cherish forever. ” – Zane & Abelene Swano.
“We recently had a photo shoots done for Chantelle’s pregnancy and two for baby Liam’s “new born shoot”, & we just had to tell you about the amazing experience we had with the photographer that did our newborn shoot for us. We know she’s great because we could compare the shoots … the other shoots were 4 hour long marathons with very little results, where Dee’s shoot (the photographer we like) on the other hand was done in less than 1 hour with amazing results. So if you guys want to photograph your children, families, pets, weddings, etc. … give Dee a serious consideration … she really is VERY talented, reasonably priced and easy to work with!!!”
“Dee’s photo’s are fun, relaxed and totally natural, her easygoing nature can take the edges off even the most frayed brides nerves”
“It was an absolute pleasure working or rather ‘shooting’ with Dee. I felt very comfortable in a few ‘uncomfortable poses’ as Dee lead me through the shoots with her very relaxing and creative style and presence. The fact that she also suggested different poses that will suit my personality (and body!) were something to look forward to when seeing the final product. I had a wonderful time, the few hours went pass so quickly, I wish we had the whole day as it was such a fun day!”
“Gustaaf, Briah and I had the privilege of having Dee come and do our newborn shoot for us. As a new mom with a 10 day old baby it can be a little daunting but Dee was so gentle and patient with little Briah. Her pictures really do speak a thousand words and they captured the innocence of new life and the love shared between us three so well. Dee took pics we will cherish for life and look back on with Briah when she’s older and smile. We thank her from the bottom of our hearts.”
