Frequently Asked Questions



I offer studio sessions or in the comfort of your home. For children, it is often beneficial to be in their element or to bring along their favourite toys/stuffies. I allow extra time for all family sessions to ensure adequate breaks. For those who are camera shy, I try to capture them in a natural way, without the pressure!

How do you handle upset or tired children, as well as people that are shy in front of the camera?
