Hunting for faries and playing pirates in the great outdoors is what Eva loves the most about her job. Location family sessions with young children are where kids can use their imagination and tap into their creativity in a wild, completely unposed way. Eva's family portrait photography is not about creating a record of how you and your young family looked during a moment in time, but capturing the magic of what it meant to hang out as a family, to love each other and to laugh together.

2. INDIVIDUAL CHILDREN $595

It's playtime! Eva will spend time having fun with your child in an outdoors environment where there is room to express big personalities and tap into the imagination. The collection of 40 images on USB will capture your child's spirit and personality and tell a little story about life as it was in that moment. Parents can choose to play in front of the camera too, if they want to. The USB and hosted online slideshow comes with your favourite image as an 11x14" signed art print. For children aged one year old and up.

1. FAMILY SESSIONS $895

This session is about relationships, and illustrating how they were for you as a family at one moment in time. It includes children, parents and, if you like, grandparents. Eva will spend time shooting you together as a family, creating candid portraits of your children individually and together with Mum and Dad. You'll receive around 60 high resolution images on USB, a hosted slideshow and an 11x14" signed art print. Some families do a session like this every year or bi-annually to create a professional, beautiful catalogue of life over the formative years.

3. NEWBORNS  & BABIES $595

Eva's style of newborn photography is candid and natural, with a focus on shooting your new baby at home where you are all most relaxed, and in your hands rather than in a staged studio environment with props. As with all sessions, you will receive a USB (with around 40 images), a hosted slideshow and a signed 11x14" art print. Eva also shoots maternity photography - please enquire.

 

FAQS:

Eva has only limited and availability for mid-week family sessions during wedding season (October-April) so please book well in advance.  There's lots more flexibility between May and September. Sessions are scheduled around the best light - around 4pm in autumn/winter/spring and 6pm in summer. The best locations are those with special family memories, or where the setting and sun position really enhances the creativity and ability to play together. Eva will discuss this with you before your session.

Clothing should reflect who you are, but if you are uncertain, go for simple, classic clothing in a muted palette avoiding bold prints, logos and loud colours. It's about you, not what you're wearing.

Sessions take around one hour, depending on the age and number of  children. 

All sessions include a USB with high resolution digital images (which you can share, print and enlarge), a hosted slideshow to share your family story with others, and your favourite image as a signed fine art print.

Please note: Eva doesn't shoot large extended families, reunions or family event photography other than weddings.
