Making memories of your family just they way you are.

 

FAMILY

Family sessions are fun, relaxed and are all about you! This is why they are held either at your family home or a place that is special to you. We can go to the park, boogie in the backyard, eat ice-cream on your favourite park bench, jump in puddles (or on the bed)  - anything that you enjoy doing and that has meaning to your family! 

 

There is no family too big or too small. Your family session will result in a collection of images that tell little unique stories and capture priceless moments of you together, just they way you are.

I take these photos for you, and I take them for your children, who in years to come will treasure these moments captured in time.

"Paige came into our home and we all took to her instantly. The kids still ask when she is coming back to visit us! The photos from our session are our most prized possession and we couldn't recommend her highly enough" - Joanne

NEWBORN

One falls in love with their baby just the way they are. Their little nose, sweet dimple, squishy cheeks, perfect fingers and tiny toes. The little faces they make when falling asleep, the way they look at you.. and the way you look at them.

My style of newborn photography is all about capturing real moments, the tiny details and the beautiful and honest connection as you welcome your little love into the family.

 

I will come to you so that you can relax in the comfort of your own home and will use the natural window light available to make natural unposed photographs. No need to stress about time - my newborn sessions are purposely longer to allow for any breaks needed. Sessions are very relaxed and work at your baby's pace. 

Your baby grows so quickly and the first few weeks can feel like a whirlwind. I recommend having your session within the first 2 weeks so you can always remember and treasure this special time.  We can get a date in the diary before your baby is born and of course we can change it if your new bundle decides to say hello earlier or later than expected. 

Please get in touch, I'd love to chat with you.

"Paige was so gentle and kind and we adore her photographs. She encouraged me to have pictures with my little girl and I'm so thankful for that. We will love these photos forever!"  - Steph

 

BABY

There are so many milestones in your babies first year and anytime is a special time for photographs. 

 

12-16 weeks is a great time for 'tummy time' photography. Babies can hold their head and make eye contact with camera, all while giving that gummy smile. 

At 6-7 months babies are sitting up and often not yet on the move.  This is a very cute time for photos!

 

Once you baby is on the move they all of the sudden have a sense of independence. I love capturing the cheeky glances and moments of discovery during this special time. 

All sessions are held either at your family home or a place that is special to you. We'll book in a time that is best for you and your baby, ideally when your baby is rested - maybe after a morning nap. 

 

The session will result in a collection of images that tell little stories unique to your baby and capture personality, love and connection. 

"Paige has a real talent for capturing moments you will treasure forever"

                                                                                         - Emily

CHILDHOOD

Children are magic and childhood is one big adventure. I capture the wonder as children play and explore, making beautifully natural images of your little one (or clan)

 

Our session will be playful and fun, and like my family sessions, can be held either at your family home or a place that is special to you. I'll chase, tickle, run, hop, dance, pull faces and I'm not afraid of dirt.

 

The session will result in a collection of images that tell little stories of childhood and capture individuality! I'm always sure to capture natural portraits during the session that shine with personality.

"I can't stop looking at these photos, they are stunning!You have captured each personality so perfectly"    - Simone

Life happens quickly! I want you to remember not only how this time in your life looked, but how it felt... That all engulfing hug, the way he looks up at you, those tiny toes, her beaming smile. 

 

 

Behind The Lens

"WORKING WITH PAIGE WAS A JOY BECAUSE FRANKLY - I AM A TOTAL DORK AND HATE HAVING MY PICTURE TAKEN. PAIGE WAS THE PERFECT MIX OF SUPPORTIVE AND ENCOURAGING WITHOUT EMBARRASSING ME. WE HAD THE BEST DAY - I DRESSED UP IN A HEAP OF CRAZY OUTFITS AND PAIGE UNDERSTOOD MY THEME AND HELPED FIND SOME REALLY SPECIAL LOCATIONS. THE PICTURES I RECEIVED HAVE MADE ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN CREATING A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS!"

                                                                           - Kate, Fitness Professional

I WANTED SOME HEADSHOTS FOR WORK AND MY WEBSITE AS PART OF A CAREER REBRAND. HAVING NEVER HAD HEADSHOTS BEFORE, I WAS A LITTLE NERVOUS BUT PAIGE REALLY PUT ME AT EASE INSTANTLY. WE DISCUSSED WHAT LOOK I WANTED TO GO FOR AND PAIGE WAS REALLY FORTHCOMING WITH HER IDEAS AS WELL AS INTERPRETING WHAT I WANTED. I HAVE TO SAY I AM THRILLED WITH THE RESULTS AS I FEEL PAIGE HELPED CAPTURE MY PERSONALITY."

                                                                                                    - Lisa, Entertainment and Talent Producer

"SIMPLY WONDERFUL. SUCH INSIGHTFUL DIRECTION THROUGHOUT THE SHOOT AND PAIGE PUT ME COMPLETELY AT EASE. PAIGE HAS LEFT ME SPOILT FOR CHOICE WITH THE NUMBER OF AMAZING SHOTS SHE HAS CREATED, AS WELL SHE HAS GIVEN ME CONFIDENCE SEEING THE BEAUTIFUL WORK SHE HAS DONE. SHE REALLY HAS GONE ABOVE AND BEYOND EXPECTATIONS. I WOULD WORK WITH HER AGAIN AND STRONGLY ADVISE MY FRIENDS AND COLLEAGUES TO DO SO TOO!" 

    

                                                                                     - Rachel, Performer

"PAIGE TAKES PRODUCTION SHOTS AT MY THEATRE SCHOOL EVERY YEAR. DURING VERY BUSY DRESS REHEARSALS SHE ALWAYS MANAGES TO CAPTURE SPECIAL MOMENTS BOTH BACKSTAGE AND DURING THE PERFORMANCE. PAIGE HAS ALSO TAKEN A NUMBER OF OUR STUDENT'S HEADSHOTS. AS A TEACHER SHE IS SO EXPERIENCED AND COMFORTABLE AROUND CHILDREN SHE INSTANTLY PUTS THEM AT EASE AND KNOWS HOW TO HAVE FUN WITH THEM TO ENSURE THEY RELAX IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA. I REALLY LOVE HOW PAIGE CAPTURES THE INDIVIDUALITY OF EVERY CHILD. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

 

                                      - Amelia, Stage Academy Director

I HAD AN AWESOME TIME SHOOTING WITH PAIGE. SO PROFESSIONAL AND SO WARM. WAY BEYOND MY EXPECTATIONS AND EXTREMELY HAPPY WITH THE PHOTOS. I HAVE HAD GREAT COMMENTS FROM CASTING DIRECTORS ABOUT MY HEADSHOTS TOO! WOULD RECOMMEND PAIGE ANYDAY!

 

                               - Bathoni, Performer

HAVING TO EXPRESS YOURSELF IN A PICTURE CAN SOMETIMES SEEM CHALLENGING OR A BIT AWKWARD. WITH PAIGE'S ENTHUSIASM AND AMAZING SENSE OF HUMOUR I FELT AT EASE. TRYING LOTS OF DIFFERENT THINGS MADE ME REALLY CALM BECAUSE THERE WAS NO PRESSURE. TOGETHER WE HAD A LOT OF FUN. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS WONDERFULLY TALENTED PHOTOGRAPHER WITHOUT A DOUBT! SENDING MY GRATITUDE TO YOU PAIGE - THANK YOU!" 

                                                                                             - Jess, Performer
