Photoshoot + Prints



During the consultation we will discuss your wishes together. I listen to and give advice. Based on this conversation I will design a mood board, I will give advice about clothing and we can set a date.


During the photo shoot I take the time for you. I'll make you feel comfortable. And don't worry, you really don't have to be a professional model to pose well. I will help you extensively with that.

High End Editing

After the shoot I get to work with a selection of photos. I edit this in my Painterly Portrait style. This is a high-quality fine art processing where your images can be next to the old masters.

01. Where will the shoot take place?

Your session will take place in Duart House, Havelock North. It's an old Historic Home based in the heart of Hawkes Bay.

02. Can Someone else be in the Session?

Yes of course! It's only $50 per extra person (this is to cover the cost of editing)

03. Will you help me with Posing?

100% this is one of the big reasons to hire someone that knows what they're doing because we will lead you through gracefully and gently.

04. Do I receive the Photos Digitally?

Yes, you will receive a low resolution file. This way you can share it with your friends and on social media.

05. Can I purchase the High Res File?

Because this kind of session is different than the others in terms of how it's conducted along with the set up and everything involved, the intention of this session is to make it look and feel like a piece of art, or rather something that belongs in a Museum. Harvey Norman is an accessible and cheaper option to have your photos printed, while this is great for lifestyle photos it loses that quality and colour. Which is why I will not be releasing High Quality Resolution Files. Your Gallery will be connected to a Boutique Printing Store based in Australia where you will be able to purchase Fine Art Prints. The High Resolution Files will be available here.

51 Duart Road, Havelock North 4130
