| Sessions with the Ones You Love |
These sessions tell a story!
Every shoot ends up a little different because every family is a little different. They aren't just about those few picture-perfect images (although rest assured we will get those). My intention for these sessions is to give you a snapshot from a moment in time with your family, where you'll end up with a little highlight reel of naturally and candidly captured moments that will evoke something in you for years to come!
I pretty much follow you about, stopping along the way to guide you into places. Mildly posing you at some points while capturing other more natural moments and interactions between you and your family. I love the seemingly everyday moments that happen but aren't often captured in still life ... a simple smile, endearing look or side-splitting laugh! Big hands and little hands holding. Walking or running together. Stopping to explore a shell on the beach or worm in the mud!
The session itself can take place at an indoor or outdoor location of your choice and tends to take about an hour (sometimes more, kind of depends on the possible little meltdowns of kids and parents alike!).
After your session, I pour over each and every image. Some are instant keepers. Some are instantly not! Others I ponder for a while. It's a long and loving process, and once complete I give you all the post-edited images so you can view, print and continue to share the story however you like.

" Donna, we're all about fun & relaxed family photos ... sign us up!"
I love grandparents and extended family and always welcome them to be a part of your family session, but as every additional person adds a tad more time, thought and direction, I hope you'll understand that I charge $50 for every additional person over your immediate family.
I had never had a private photo shoot before. Donna made our family feel so at ease. It actually turned out to be great fun, lots of laughing and smiling. We picked our favourite spot at the beach. Donna was just fab, came up with lots of different ideas and in the end, we were rewarded with amazing, natural family photos in a great location!

Donna took some family photos of our daughter's 1st birthday. The pictures are truly outstanding. Donna has a real talent and an amazing eye for capturing the experience and the feeling of the day. We loved that we were given all the photos and didn't have to choose. The family photos are the first thing I would grab if the house caught on fire (besides the family!)

When we asked Donna to do our photo session, we were hoping to get some great shots of the kids. What we didn’t realise is that Donna’s natural warmth and relaxed manner meant that we all had a really fun and enjoyable time together at the photo shoot. We played with the kids in the park and Donna skilfully found ways to make the moments between us shine. Donna created natural and beautiful photos that we treasure.
