WHY CHOOSE ME

Cakesmash sessions are such fun, I can get creative with my set ups and aim to capture the essence of your little one at this special milestone, I am very patient and work with parents and toddler to get the best out of a session.  Sometimes little ones at this stage are weary of strangers so I always try and acclimatise them to me and the studio environment before we get going, I will get a feel for if little one is weary of me or not.  If they are not then brilliant I can pose them easily, if they are a little timid I coach mum or dad into placing the little one/s so I don't upset them and I stay a safe distance away that they feel secure. My aim is for you all to enjoy your session as much as your images.

Where do apprentices live?


Typically, apprentices stay with a Host Family. The Host Homes are a very important part of the program. They provide our apprentices with a ‘home away from home’ during a very exciting and purposeful season of their lives. Host Families play an integral role in apprenticeship. We want our apprentices staying in safe, caring homes so they can focus on the program and we can focus on their development. Any exceptions to the typical Host Family arrangment must be approved by the Apprenticeship Council. The term “Host Family” includes all families who open their homes to apprentices (including scenarios where an apprentice lives with their family).
