Warm, energetic, passionate and creative are but a few words to describe Abigail. From the first time I saw her at Oakfield Farm's Bridal Expo I INSISTED that i needed to have Abigail photograph my wedding. Thank you Abigail for being a breath of fresh air on my wedding day, you were calm and collected and your energy and passion for what you do is so apparent. Truly an artist in her own right.

Printing

A moment unprinted is a memory lost

I firmly believe that in the digital age we live in our memories become lost and forgotten.
By printing our memories we immortalise them
Suddenly they become something tangible, they have substance and meaning

I have a range of products for you to invest in, whether it be for your home or for your family to make your memories last a lifetime.

Our fine art albums start at R4,500.

faq

Do you travel for shoots?

Absolutely! You can contact me to find out my travel dates. However travel fees are not included in the cost of the shoot.

How far in advance should I book?

As I only take on a limited number of lifestyle sessions per month, I suggest booking around 3 months in advance.

I’m pregnant, when should I schedule my maternity shoot?

The best time for your maternity shoot is when you are between 30-35 weeks pregnant

I’m having a natural birth, how do we schedule a date?

We usually book a date around 5 days after your “due date”. As soon as baby arrives just let me know and we can adjust the date if necessary! I book a maximum of 3 shoots a week to allow for this!

I’m not really sure what to do for the shoot will you help me?

Absolutely! Once we’ve confirmed your booking I will send you some ideas and help you plan your shoot! The more effort you put into styling your shoot the better your images will come out!

Should I get my make-up/ hair professionally done for the shoot?

Absolutely! Professionals know exactly what products and techniques to use to ensure your make-up is camera ready as well as it making your feel confident on the day!

How do I make a booking?

1. Get in touch with me with the details of your shoot and to check my availability

2. If I’m available I will send you the details of my packages for you to consider

3. Once you’re ready to book, you can fill in an online booking form (the booking form link is available at the bottom of my packages)

4. You will receive a confirmation from me as well as your invoice in order for you to pay your booking fee

5. You will need to pay a 50% non-refundable booking fee to secure your shoot, once I have that I will confirm your date!

6. That’s it! Once that’s done I can send your more information to help you plan your session and I’m all yours!

How will I receive my images?

You will either receive a beautiful USB or an online link for you to download your session depending on your package!

What photographic equipment do you use? Do you have a backup?

I Shoot with Canon simply out of personal preference; I believe a beautiful image has more to do with the person behind the Camera than the equipment itself.

And yes! I always have a backup!

Do you use extra lighting equipment?

I try and shoot with natural light wherever possible as nothing beats its quality, however where there is not enough light I will use my flash or LED lights.

What is the best time of day for our photos?

For outdoor shoots the best light is an hour before sunset for your photos – to see when the sun sets on the day of your shoot visit – Timeanddate.com
For young families we can also organise a mid morning session when your little one is at their best at a chosen location in open shade.
Indoor shoots can be done any time during the day between 10am and 4pm

Can you remove my double chin, mole, add a flower, nicer sky etc?

I always like to make sure my clients look their best
However I still try and keep my editing as natural and authentic as possible and rather pose you correctly to avoid the double chins etc.
However if there is anything distracting in the image I will remove it!
Any requests for advanced retouching is charged at R50/image

How long will it be before we can see our photos?

Because of the amount of work that goes into your images it will take between 4-6 weeks before they will be ready depending on how busy I am.
Albums will be ready only after images have been selected and the design approved which can be an additional 2-4 weeks for printing.

Do you offer Albums?

I firmly believe in printing your moments! I offer a range of beautifully crafted albums that you can choose from when booking your shoot, as well as smaller options for your family.

Do you only shoot Lifestyle?

No, even though my main focus is now on Lifestyle shoots I still also shoot a number of Weddings throughout the year
