Hamilton - New Zealand
Relaxed and natural
Personal - Love - Authentic
Once a month I am located in Papamoa for a weekend. Beach shoots at sunset are awesome for families.
There are some great parks and spots for family shoots in or near Hamilton. Maybe a bush area, a playground, or perhaps a cool urban shoot.
Rocks, sand, tussock... variety
Relaxed, bring the dog
Kids can play and explore
Space to run around
In the water if you are keen
What should i wear?
We dont know how to pose
The trend at the moment is bohemian. My wardrobe suggestion is to wear nice clothes, but also ones you feel comfortable in... be a good version of yourselves. Avoid big logos and repeating patterns like tight lines in men's shirts (they come up funny in the camera)
Its possible you arnt a model, so all good. Generally I would set you up in a nice area and just give you things to do, so you arnt thinking about posing. We might do one formal shot and then interact and play. I will talk to you like people, so instead of saying "smile", I will saying something that puts a smile on your face.
Can I get prints through you?
How many people can we bring?
Yes of course. You have all the files to print yourself but if you prefer I can give you prints, frames or albums. I source mine through Queensberry, and amazing NZ publisher.
As many as you want, however understand that the more people the less shots as managing everything take more time. Its best to keep it to key people, or book more time.
