LIFESTYLE COUPLES PHOTOGRAPHY INFORMATION
A Lifestyle Couples Photo Session with me is for the newly engaged, the newly married, the married almost for nearly FOREVER, for those who have never married, for those who have just got together and for those couples who have fur-babes. Really it’s for any couple who just wants authentic & beautiful photographs to celebrate the heart bursting love they have for each other.
My couples photography is a little different…
My focus during your session will be on discovering the simplicity, lightness & the depth of your in between moments & your real connections as a couple.
I photograph with my heart and soul.
My photography style sits somewhere in between Documentary Photography and Portrait Photography. It’s life inspired, Lifestyle Photography.
My photography is not for everyone… And that’s really ok by me. I like different, awkward & some weirdness. Well because that’s me too. My photography is not for you if you are wanting, the stock standard cookie-cutter traditional photos, look at the camera-&-say-cheese-&-smile. Sure I’ll get a couple of those shots but that won’t be the focus of your Lifestyle Session with me. And I’m not into making everything look absolutely perfect, I much prefer perfectly imperfect, the real you with all the real feels.
My photography is for you… If you want a reminder, tomorrow & the day after, when life feels hard & you’re running on that hamster wheel or you just want to hold on to the little moments, and you just want a reminder, that life has given you love-filled & soulful (EXTRA)ordinary moments. My photography is for you, if you when you look back on your photos in 10, 20 or 50 years from now, you want you to feel, to really feel & really remember… all those little moments, the tender soft touches, the gentle sweet lasting kisses, those tight, tight safe squeezes, those real belly laughs, and most important of all, if you really want to feel & remember that heart bursting love you have for each other.
The way I will photograph you will be simple, authentic, creative & beautiful. It will be all about capturing you, just as you are, right now.

It is little different to how the average photographer structures their pricing & this does mean a little higher starting price.

LIFESTYLE COUPLES PHOTOGRAPHY GUIDE
Get in touch! I’d love to hear from you as soon as possible so we have a chat & work out what you want from your session. Like what you really want. I’m a big believer that the best portraits are made when it’s a truly collaborative process. So together lets make some magic.
A $200 booking retainer is required to secure your booking with me and the remaining balance is due just before your session.
Before we get started on the day we’ll have a little chat, get to know each other a bit more, I’ll tell you a bit more about my ‘plan’ & you tell me anything you want to, then I’ll have a sticky beak around the your home or the location looking for the light & where will work best visually.
Now. Now is absolutely the right time. That’s the best thing about Lifestyle Couples Photography anytime is the right time. It can be to celebrate a special milestone in your life or it can be just because. Just because you want to celebrate & hold on to life as it is now.
I generally will have two session times available on a day, either in the morning or the afternoon. An in-home session is a bit more flexible as the big bright sun isn’t really an issue, mid-morning or late afternoon is great is when I’ll do your in-home session. But if we are going outdoors for your session a very early sunrise start or late afternoon sunset session are the only times I will photograph so we get that amazing light.
Your Lifestyle Couples Photography is best done somewhere that is meaningful to you. I can come to you in your home, or we can head outdoors to a favourite spot, or maybe you’ve arranged a weekend getaway.
At home we will use your cosy bed, your backyard, the lounge room or even the bathroom.
For outdoors sessions, I’m very much guided by the places you love to be in & the things you love to do. Maybe the beach or a local coffee shop or a nature reserve park… and of course I’m more than happy to offer some suggestions of lovely locations too.
What do you wear? This one feels like kinda a big deal… am I right?
Most importantly, be comfortable & be yourself.
Think about the environment you will be in & wear something that suits that.
Collectively, outfits that co-ordinate look great, but the matchy-matchy thing, not so great. You remember that white top & blue jeans look that everyone did in the 80’s, well it’s best it stay there… Oh gosh, no big labels across your shirts & gah… no sports shirts.
Something free & flowing OR jeans / shorts & a top OR a playsuit, always work well for the women. Casual & relaxed; wear something that feels like you. Really just something you feel confident & comfortable sitting, standing, laying down or even rolling around on the ground in. Cover the bits you don’t like, make the most of the bits you do like. Same goes for the men, something he feels comfortable in. T-Shirt & jeans or shorts always works well. And I actually really love you to get your shoes off too!
Oh did I mention… Be comfortable & be yourself. That’s who I want to capture, you, as you!
Still stuck, have a look through my portfolio to see what my other couples wore.
What do you do to prepare your home?
Neat, tidy & clutter free. Whatever you don’t want in the photos hide away. Buuuut it’s so important for it to feel like your home too. Depending on the best light, I typically will use the master bedroom, the lounge room & sometimes even the bathroom or kitchen! Oh yeah & clean(ish) sheets, would be super, coz I might get you to be all cuddles in a messy bed.
What if you feel totes awkward in front of the camera? You are not alone! I’d have to say most of the people I photograph initially are a little camera-shy. As am I… I just ask you to let go a little, be present in those little moments & be yourself, just love on each other, it’s really that easy… & I will do the rest.
Haven’t booked in yet… I’d so so LOVE to hear from you, lets do this, yeah! Head on over to the CONNECT tab.
