Frequently asked questions

Why is a session 2 hours long?

To get the best shots you need to be able to tell a story. 1 hour is seldom enough time to capture the funny and interesting moments. 2 hours gives us enough time to get everyone relaxed, find the best locations and get the pictures you are looking for. Remember, to capture the really great moments and to make the pictures look great takes time.

What do I get for my money?

The cost includes the following: 1. A two hour shoot on location, 2. 30-50 digitally enhanced photos (about 2 hours of editing), 3. 10 professionally photoshopped photos (about 30 mins per photo), 4. A great photographer :)

What should we wear?

Wear clothes which are comfortable. Muted colours are the best. Very bright colours tend to take the emphasis off the people and onto the clothes. No big logos or pictures on the clothes.

Where do you take photos?

Anywhere really. Obviously I like to take photos in beautiful areas and that makes the pictures look great. If the shoot is in Johannesburg there is no extra charge for travel.

What time of day is best for photos?

Either early morning or late afternoon. The harsh sun around midday is not the greatest for photography.

What do I need to bring to the shoot?

If you have smaller children it is sometimes nice to bring their favorite toys or comforts. This makes it easier for them to relax and can be used in the shoot if appropriate. If it is fairly warm then bring some water and snacks for the children.
