Motherhood, and family.
Family, the heart of humanity.
“I am firmly held in the life and heart of motherhood, drawn to the undeniable connection between a mother and child, moved by the story and intensity of the often tiresome repetition of raising our young. A story that is rooted within the body, I seek to discover in the eyes and energy of anyone in front of my lens.”
Motherhood portraits (also can be booked as family sessions) are a one hour photo-shoot at home or a nearby location focusing my eye on your inherent love, your ageless strength and timeless beauty (and that of your young), and the relationship/s you share.
Photography is gentle, relaxed, honest and emotive creating a photo album of real moments and ethereal natural portraits, telling a universal story but with each shot an artwork unique to you. The photographs will range between documentary style and more of an art directed approach, utilising the creativity of digital photography and sentimental nostalgia that film analogue evokes.
You will receive a private gallery (roughly 40 final edits) for viewing and downloading, with images shot in both black and white photography, and colour, as well as film analogue in which you can choose to add more rolls on to your session at a small extra cost.
Pricing starts from $750 including one roll of film.
Please contact me to make a booking enquiry.
︎ A travel fee may apply, subject to location and availability. Please enquire.
︎ I can assist with your styling, mood-board and location choices pre-production. This is something I love to consider, to truly make the shoot something else - to convey the right mood, and the essence of you. I can also work with a direct brief, or be asked to conceptulise your story to create something more art-driven and not as documentary in style.
︎ I offer fine art printing of any of your collection of images. If you’d like to print some photographs on fine art cotton rag paper in archival inks (museum grade printing), I can draw up a quote for you through my art printers in Melbourne. Please enquire.
︎ I also photograph Birth, and Postpartum, you can find more information here.
︎ If you are not local, I do travel for portraiture work and am always registering interest. Please get in touch here if you wish to know more about dates and locations.
