Thank you for your interest in my Winter 'Half' Sessions!!

So... what exactly is a 'half' session???

Well... they are not quite a full session, but MUCH better than a mini one!!

These packages are perfect for those wanting to update their photos with beautiful images by an award winning family photographer (me!!!!!). They are super fun and will give you a range of beautiful images which celebrate your unique and loving family. You are not constrained to a quick 10 minute session on a set day, but get a choice of locations and dates - and we have a full 30 minutes to settle in a grab the best shots! They are designed for up to 5 people only and take place an hour or so before sunset.

When it comes to choosing your final images you can choose a little or a lot, and adding on prints is really easy. Prices are much cheaper than my full sessions, so they are great value too!! I only offer half sessions in the winter months (and this year only August), so grab them while you can!

How does it all work?

  • Choose your location (Port Hills, Halswell Quarry, Beach) and contact me to book in a date.
  • Sessions take place within 2 hours of sunset, to get those golden tones, on Sundays through to Thursdays.
  • Pay your $50 session fee. This secures your date and covers the session only (it is non-refundable).
  • I'll contact you the day before the session to do a weather check and confirm the time.
  • Within 2 weeks, you'll be sent a link to a time limited online gallery to choose your favourite images and add-ons from.
  • I'll prepare your final images, add a black and white version of each file, and order your prints.
  • You'll receive a notification when your high resolution files are ready to download and your prints are ready to collect!
