Alot of people ask me why I have these sessions so cheap, especially in comparison to the market prices in New Zealand. My whole photography career was kickstarted when I was given a voucher for a family photoshoot for my 21st, I hadn't even considered getting professional photography until then as I had always viewed it as a luxury I couldn't afford, and yet the happiness those photos still bring me, years later, is priceless to me now. My son is 2 and a half and hasn't had the smoothest of transitions into pre-school, luckily the pre-school is only minutes from the beach so I feel secure knowing I can alway get there quickly if he needs me. For me, the beach sessions are a win-win. I get to stay close to my son during the hours he is at pre-school and I also get the privilege of providing high-quality professional images for those who can't typically justify the market price for professional photos.
