“A moment goes by quickly, but a photo lasts for ever”
Lifestyle Family Portraits
Lifestyle family photography on location is a great way to capture a mix of posed and candid moments with you and your children.
I give direction when needed to create a relaxed candid look but with a little structure and direction so everyone looks their best!
All my family photoshoots are either outside at a park or beach or at your home.
The duration of the photoshoot will depend on the number of people, the location, the ages of children, and our desired outcome.
For older children (teens and young adults) it is a posed family session.
Your session fee includes:
Your lifestyle portrait photoshoot on location
Up to one hour – guided photoshoot.
Your online client gallery and/or in-person viewing session to select your images.
30 edited images included – supplied for print with social media-sized copies.
Matching 4×6 inch prints in a keepsake box OR an A3 matted and framed print of your choice.
Additional digital packages with print rights and matching loose prints can be added on after you view your edited gallery online or in person at my studio.
Receive your 4×6 inch prints in a keepsake box and your digital files via your online client gallery. Convenient download and sharing options.
I would love to hear from you!

Frequently Asked Questions
Please send me and email or call me if you have any questions.
Send me an email and we can chat about the location and the best day and time that suits your family.
Photoshoots are booked for late afternoon or early evening for the best light – particularly at locations that do not have shade options.
A 50% retainer is due to book your preferred date in my calendar.
This is non-refundable for cancellation but I do move your booking for weather or health. The remaining 50% is due 24 hours prior to your original booked photoshoot date.
Travel fees may apply.
Pricing includes GST.
Yes. I can. A travel fee will apply though. Due to the nature of outdoor photoshoots and Northlands unpredictable weather, if there is a photographer closer to the location that you can book then that would be best. Otherwise – if you love my work and would like me to travel, let’s chat!
I have some favourite hair and make up artists that I can recommend and they can meet you at your home prior to your photoshoot.
A full clothing info guide will be sent upon booking.
I recommend colour coordinating outfits but not matching.
Neutral tones with either one bold colour or a pattern (think mustard dress or floral shirt). Avoid busy patterns, tee-shirts with logos and slogans and kids clothing with cartoon characters on them. Make sure clothes are clean and ironed and also dress for the weather – no one likes to be too cold or too hot.
Absolutely. I believe the images should be printed and the products be of high quality to last generations. I use Queensberry who are based in Auckland. They specialise in stunning albums, prints and wall art. Please get in touch for pricing info.
“Sarah photographed our extended family and she was fantastic. Sarah is very professional but relaxed at the same time. We all felt at ease in her company and the photos are stunning and very natural. We would highly recommend her as a photographer.”
