Photography for families, large gatherings and events

I’m inspired by the connections and interactions between the people I am photographing and the unscripted moments. I like to shoot in a casual, relaxed environment, outdoors preferably. Feel free to kick off your shoes and to have some fun! My family sessions are both directed and documentary style. As well as small family groups, I am also very happy to do large family groups/gatherings and reunions.  I especially enjoy a family shoot on a farm!

2. Grand family/friends session (up to 24 people) – perfect for an annual extended family gathering, large family portraits, a group of friends, reunions or farewells. This is a directed shoot with classic portraiture as well as capturing the candid moments of a large gathering!

4. Event Documentary Shoot – this style of shoot is for when you have an event or an activity organised and would like it to be documented.  My intention is to tell the story of your event/activity. This shoot will mostly include candid, documentary style photography.

– FAQ’s

  • For larger groups than the numbers mentioned in the above packages, an extra charge ‘per person’ will be applicable.
