Photography Packages

Durban-based branding and family photographer. Have a peek below at my packages. But please feel free to contact me to discuss any special needs or questions you may have.

Imagine on brand imagery that has clients think: Now I want to work with her!! Followed immediately by reaching into their wallets and investing into working with you.

Now that ladies is my superpower! Working with you to create imagery that captures your unique essence. I adore watching how having a beautiful selection of high quality photographs impact my client's social media, and thus their businesses.

If you hold dear the connection and significance that is family, adoring the real and natural flow of a moment in time you are in the right spot! Let’s capture the story of what fills your heart with love and joy!

I have an extraordinary passion for family photography and am pleased to be able to celebrate memorable moments with my customers and eternally record a moment in time. PS: Pets are welcome at every one of my photo shoots.

During this one hour session we will be at one venue only, carefully chosen to represent you and your brand. You will be able to change into multiple outfits to get the most variety out of our time together.

You will receive 15 beautiful images to be used across your social media platforms.



Branding - Standard Session


We will do a shoot planning call or meet up to discuss all your needs, your brand and your brand message. I will work on a work flow and find the best venue.

On the day, we will spend approximately 2-3 hours on this shoot and will use two venues, chosen to represent you and your brand at its best. You will have the opportunity to change into multiple outfits (this could depend on the venue so we will discussed the details). We will also enjoy a delicious cup of coffee.

You will receive 50 beautiful images to be used on all your social media platforms.



Branding - Ultimate Session


This full day shoot (6 hours) is an epic one, where you can Get It All Done In One! Meaning, one day of having your hair and make up done, and together we will be creating enough content for 6-12 months!

We will meet up over coffee for a planning session, so that we can get it right on the day with the workflow.

You will receive my branding shoot guide.

We will visit up to 4 different venues and you will have unlimited outfit changes.
