FAQ

your questions answered

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO BOOK?

If you are interested in a newborn session, its best to book in as early as you can.

I just pencil in your due date and we work around it from there. I will also need you to advise me within 2 days of baby's arrival to finalise the session date.

If you do wish to have your session on a weekend please book in early as these are very limited availability. I also use studio lighting, and on request am able to do evening sessions if you prefer.

Newborns are best photographed, within the first couple of weeks, so 6-14 days for extra sleepy curly babies. Up to 3 weeks old.

Maternity (Bump) sessions are best scheduled around 34-37 weeks - possibly earlier if you are having (lucky you) twins, or more.

Family sessions you can book in when you need one. Please note seasonal session times - blossom sessions (August), Wysteria (October), Salvation Jane (November), Jacaranda (January) and Autumn leaves (approx April).

HOW LONG WILL THE SESSION LAST?

I do allow 2-3 hours for a newborn session. Don’t be surprised if it takes them a good while to get into “baby model mode”. That give me plenty of time to get the photos we need, including breaks for cuddles and comfort.

A family session will generally be around 1 hour depending on the location of the shoot, and maternity is about the same amount of time too.

HOW OLD DOES MY BABY NEED TO BE?

Newborn sessions are best undertaken when baby is under 3 weeks old. They are curly, squishy and all new, new, new!

Baby photos are best done at 3mths, 6mths, 9mths and 12 months; to capture how fast they grow.

WHAT SHOULD I/WE WEAR FOR THE SESSION?

Wearing simple light clothing is the best. For Mum wear a simple light top, something you are comfortable in, soft and solid colors are best, or just white for a soft relaxing look (remember if you are breastfeeding you may want bring this top to change into). No stripes or red/pinks. I also can use a plain wrap if you don’t have an appropriate top. Dad and siblings I would also suggest natural, light colours for the photos.

For family and maternity sessions, I am able to provide additional guidance about what to wear for your sessions. Maternity sessions you can wear something you are comfortable with in simple tones and colours. I also have some simple gowns to show off your beautiful growing baby belly.

WHAT SHOULD WE BRING/HAVE AVAILABLE FOR THE SESSION?

You don’t need to bring in anything for your newborn as I have plenty of newborn props available should you be happy to make a selection from those for your session. In our pre-session consultation we'll also go through decor, colour, prop and styling ideas. If you prefer please bring along something more personal/sentimental that you would like used.

DO YOU COME TO MY HOME?

Yes, I can if you wish, or I have access to a studio location if you find that more convenient. Baby and Maternity sessions take place in studio or on location. Family sessions are usually outdoors at a location chosen to suit your needs. This could include the beach, local gardens or a special place with meaning for you and your family; it may even be your own back garden. Ask me for my suggestions, I’d only be too happy to help.

DO I NEED TO PREPARE ANYTHING IF YOU ARE COMING TO MY HOME?

Yes I need access to a reasonable space (I have had clients move the dining room tables out) to work in, and I also need a room that we can keep warm for the session. Warm, meaning about 27, so hot for us but perfect for baby (just like in the womb). If we are not sweating its not warm enough. Yes even in Summer.

WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL THE SESSION OR CHANGE THE DATE? WHAT IF WE ARE RUNNING LATE FOR A SESSION?

Once baby has arrived and a time and date confirmed, I will need 48 hours notice to adjust the session time. A 48 notice period applies for all sessions, and only one non-emergency change is allowed, before an additional session fee applies. Please let me know you are running late, any later than 1 hour an additional session fee will be charged.

WHY DO YOU ALWAYS PROVIDE PRINTS, NOT JUST THE HI-RES DIGITAL FILES?

Firstly, you've paid for top quality professional images, why would you want to risk printing them with suppliers who won't produce prints that let those images look their absolute best?

All products in my range are sourced from suppliers I have trialled and selected from around Australia and overseas. I have samples of all products in my selection for you to view. All individual prints are printed on fine art quality paper that will last for generations when properly cared for.

I want to provide you with a service where you don't need to worry about any of this. Where the colours look exactly as they are supposed to, where your canvas aren't faded within a year of them going up.

Take some time to think about what you want to do with your images. Many people don't even think about what they want to do with their images until they've actually seen them. Even then you might be rather busy with a new baby by then and might not have time to actually get around to doing anything with them... in the short term, or worse, ever. Now where is that USB?

Remember it's not just about how many images you'll get at the end - most people would prefer to get 10-15 images they absoutely adore and can display beautifully then 40,50 or 100 that are, "just ok".

MANY PEOPLE THINK THEY NEED TO GET ALL THE HIGH-RES DIGITALS, BUT ARE YOU GOING TO BE DOING LARGE PRINTS OF EVERY IMAGE?

Of course, everyone still wants to be able to view and share digital copies of their images as well. For all products you purchase will be supplied a hi-res file too. There is a digital option to purchase the entire gallery of these even if you don't buy prints of all of them.

Don't forget to ask about our special "choose your own package" (CYOP) options to take advantage of not only the 25% discount, but your hi-res digital files included too.

If you just plan to share on the internet, Facebook and via email you receive the lo-res files too, these files are saved to look their best online.

HOW MANY PHOTOS DO YOU TAKE?

I love to take lots of photos to make sure I get the perfect ones just for you. I will present you with approximately 30 final creatively hand edited images for you to choose from.

CAN I/MY PARTNER AND OTHER CHILDREN BE IN THE PHOTOS?

Of course. Its a special family event, so of course i would love to include you and your immediate family. This is at no extra charge, and never will be.

HOW LONG WILL IT BE BEFORE WE SEE THE PHOTOS?

The edited images are available to view approximately two weeks after your session. I will make an appointment time for me to come and present you with your final gallery for selection, at your session. Online gallery is available for regional and country clients.

WANT TO KNOW A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ME?

I have loved photography since I was young, but I have been photographing newborns since 2012, around when my own 1st baby was born. I love it because I know how amazing my two little ones are and capturing that for others is something I just adore doing.

I appreciate it’s a big deal to entrust me with your newborn baby, but your newborns safety is a number one priority for me. I will never pose a baby in unsafe position. I will ask for assistance from you when I need it, and I will have an assistant when I can (this will be guaranteed if its multiple babies).

I have attended training events and courses (both online and in person) with some of the worlds leading newborn photographers. I believe it’s important in any industry to keep up with training. Learning is a lifelong journey.

My business is fully insured, my immunisations are all current and I have a current Certificate of Attendance from St John for “caring for kids” course.
