What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

The secret to taking a great photograph is to not just think of it as a "photo" but a piece of art that will carry you through time and become your families legacy.

When I work I like to have a personal connection with my babies and their families. In New Zealand where I am from everyone is an Aunty and Uncle, and because most of my clients see me once, twice a year I become the kids Aunty DiDi. I see them grow up, from sitting up, to crawling and then taking their first steps. I am forever woven into that child life and I consider that a true honor. That level of feeling and connection allows me to make a true piece of art.

What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?

The questions I might ask a client when starting a new project is all based on and around how would they like to be remembered in the future?

I have Mothers ring me everyday saying "I just want a nice photo of my baby", which is perfect what mother wouldn't want to capture their pride and joy at this point in their life. The next step from that is... ok now what... what are you going to do with those amazing portraits? Having great portraits of your baby on Facebook or stashed away in a draw somewhere doesn't show your kids how proud you are of them, it doesn't say I love you so much that I want to celebrate you!

I want you to enjoy your images not just for the few seconds you load them up on Facebook but every single day. I have had a mum say to me every time she is tired, stressed, overwhelmed all she does is go and stand in front of those amazing portraits of her girls and life gets a little easier, the reason she is doing it all is for those girls and those portraits help her remember that.

So I ask, how do you want to display your portraits?

What do you love most about your job?

My Job is not my Job and that is the best part of it. Sure I do it full time, and sure I work really hard at it but its not my job. I invest in my equipment, my location and my props but its still not my job...

its my passion, my hearts desire, the fuel that fills me up and keeps me going. And because it is for me my work fills my clients hearts.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Start your own business is hard work, everyone wants to believe they can but very few follow through and do what it takes. The reason I do what it takes is because what it does for my clients, what they tell me is does for them. Every client of mine contributes to the next client by supporting me in keeping this business running, if it wasn't for my clients I would not be able to supply portraits that inspire, move and fill my clients hearts and that to me is my biggest driving force. So thank you for supporting a local artist in making a difference in peoples lives.

Why should our clients choose you?

I want people to choose my art, I am just the person who it flows from. I want you to choose work that inspires you, that moves you, that will make its mark on your heart. If that is my work then I really look forward to meeting you and creating your story.

The number of photos that your photographer will take will depend on the type and duration of the photoshoot you book. You won’t see most of the photos either. This is because your photographer will take duplicate photos in case anyone blinks or looks away. They’ll then delete any photos that don’t come out quite right before showing you the final selection. A one-hour family photoshoot will typically generate between 30 and 60 finished photos.

What you choose to wear for your photoshoot is a personal choice. It’s important to choose an outfit that you feel confident in, as this will help to put you at ease during your photoshoot. Try to avoid busy patterns as these may blur on photos. If you’re having a family photoshoot, it’s a good idea to co-ordinate your outfits to ensure that you don’t clash with each other.

There are a few things that you can do to prepare your children for a photo shoot. Firstly, tell them about the photo shoot and help them to get excited. This will give the best chance of capturing smiles on camera. It’s also a good idea to make sure that the photo shoot doesn’t conflict with nap times and that your children eat, drink and go to the toilet before the photoshoot begins.
