Stepping Out: Do you wanna have your photo taken? // Photography

I had an epiphany this week. It was after reading a post by the lovely Kelly Exeter about saying no. I realised that I was saying yes to the wrong things, which meant I was having to say no to the things I really want to be doing. Well no more. I'm saying no to poorly paid blogging opportunities that aren't contributing to what I want to do. And yes to doing more of the things that will get me doing what I want to do. Namely, finishing my design fundamentals course and pursing my photography...
Which brings me to stepping out and asking you the question, do you wanna have your photo taken? By me? If you're in the Sydney area, I've decided to make myself available for three location family & kids shoots in October.

For $150 you'll get me for 45 to 60 minutes, in a location of your choosing (within the Sydney area and preferably outside, I prefer to shoot in natural light as much as possible). You'll also get up to 10 hi-res images on a disc, as well as 5x7 prints of each of the images. Copyright will be yours.

What I'll get is valuable experience and more examples of my photography work to showcase in my portfolio and new photography website that I am building. This is a giant leap of faith for me. For years I've been crippled by self-doubt and a lack of confidence. 

No more. I've decided to back myself, and I hope you will too.

If you or someone you know would be interested in booking one of these three mini-shoots then please send me an email to kylie@kyliepurtell.com. As I said, the shoots will take place in October, and you will have your photographs in plenty of time to use for Christmas, if you so wish. If you're not completely satisfied with the images then I am happy to offer a 100% money back guarantee. I'm pretty confident you'll be happy though.

Below is some examples of  my work from the last 6 months, starting with my good friend and her gorgeous daughter and new baby girl...

  1. Great photos! Wish I was in Sydney. I've lost all my confidence with my camera and have just signed up for a DSLR course because the last one I completed was way back in the dark room ages.
