Beautiful and affordable photos
of families at every stage of life
Hi there, I'm Liz and I am passionate about creating beautiful and affordable photos for families in and around Te Anau.
I photograph families at every stage of life: during pregnancy, having a new baby, celebrating milestones (with or without cake) and capturing your family as it grows and changes every year.
My ideal client is someone who doesn’t want to spend thousands on each photoshoot, but wants to get beautiful photos for an affordable price and will keep coming back for more photos throughout the years.
I would love for your family albums to be filled to the brim with the photos that I lovingly created, and that is one of the reasons why my photoshoots have all digital images included.
How do we do this?
Step one is to click on the type of photoshoot you want to do: newborn, milestone/cake smash, family or maternity. Each page has a little portfolio so you can see if you like my work. Then check out my pricing page to see if this works with your budget. All digital photos are included, so you will only pay once and then you can decide to print those photos at your own convenience.
The next thing to do is to contact me so we can talk about dates and locations. Weekends can become quite busy, so if you can only do a weekend, make sure you message me at least two weeks before you want to do a shoot. Weekday shoots can usually be booked with just two days' notice.
Once we have a date, I will send you a booking form. There is no booking fee or deposit. I will also send you lots of information so you can prepare yourselves. If you are looking to do an outdoor shoot, I will be in touch with you the day before the shoot so we can discuss the weather forecast. We will need to reschedule or change it to a studio location if it rains.
Next is photoshoot day! I make it as fun and relaxing as possible, and work my magic to create a wide variety of photos with (hopefully) lots of smiles. It almost never happens, but if something goes awry (such as a child that is suddenly teething and can't be soothed), we may decide to try again on another day. In this case, there is no cost for a reshoot.
Then I go home and edit all your lovely photos. I will email you a link to a preview gallery within 48 hours (usually even quicker though, as I love getting the photos back to you soon). This gives you a chance to look at the photos and let me know if you are happy with the results. Then I will send you my payment details and the amount you have to pay (which will be exactly the amount as listed on my pricing page, unless you get a repeat client discount of course).
Once payment comes through, I will send you all the high-res digital files through a new link. You can then download everything to all your devices and start sharing and printing these to your heart's content.
The last thing I do is send you a few of my favourite photos that I would like to share on my website and business social media. You are welcome to veto any particular photos or just ask me not to share anything. I will always respect your choice in this!
I hope this gives you a great idea of how I work and what the process is like. If you have any other questions, or would like to start the booking process right away, please do get in touch!
