FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT TYPES OF SESSIONS DO YOU OFFER?

I photograph couples as well as maternity, babies, children, families and lastly, professional headshots.

WHAT TIME OF DAY DO YOU BOOK SESSIONS?

l book all outdoor on location sessions one to two hours before sunset as this is the time that the sun is at just the right spot to create beautiful, flattering light for your session. 

Indoor, Newborn Photography lifestyle sessions are run in the morning.

WHERE WILL MY SESSION TAKE PLACE?

All outdoor on location sessions take place at various tried and tested park locations south of the river.  We will work together to find the closest and most suitable for where you are based and the type of session you are after.

Newborn Lifestyle sessions usually take place in the comfort of your own home, but if you’d prefer to take the family outdoors for this, that’s perfectly fine too.

WHEN DO I SCHEDULE MY NEWBORN LIFESTYLE SESSION?

Once your booking form and deposit is received, your due date and interim session date is reserved. However even if you are booked for a c-section/induction your baby’s exact arrival date cannot be predicted so your final session date and time will be confirmed after baby is born. I ask my clients to notify me within 48 hours of baby’s birth, from there a date is locked in for your session.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO MY SESSION?

For family sessions with small children, bring along any toys that are currently a hit.  Especially if they have a comforter.  Small, squeaky, noisy toys also come in handy with gaining attention should the need arise.

I will provide you with further information on what to bring in a pre-session info email tailored specifically to your shoot.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR FOR MY SESSION?

You will be sent a guide for choosing your outfits once your session is booked. I will walk you through the whole process of choosing your outfits, letting you know what does and doesn’t photograph well.

WHAT IF MY KIDS DON'T BEHAVE?

Kids will be kids and sometimes, that’s half the fun! We will work with what we have and I’ll also send you some info prior to your session that will maximise your chances of happy munchkins!

WHAT IF THE WEATHER DOESN'T PLAY ALONG?

If the weather turns bad and the wind howls or the rain pours down, we will work together to secure the earliest date possible to reschedule. Please note that overcast days provide optimal lighting for outdoor photoshoots.

WHAT IS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHIC STYLE?

It’s a style of family photography which is based on candid (photojournalistic/ lifestyle) photography and emphasises capturing moments which arise from natural connections between people.  Very little posing and a lot more observing.

If you are looking for studio style, bonnets and floral headbands newborn photography, then I’m probably not your go to person.

HOW AND WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY IMAGES?

You will receive a link via email to view your private online gallery within 1-2 weeks of your photoshoot. Your images can be downloaded directly from the gallery for you to save wherever you like.  “Sneak Peeks” will sporadically be uploaded to Facebook and Instagram as I work through your images.

CAN I PURCHASE A SESSION GIFT VOUCHER?

You sure can!  Vouchers can be purchased directly from the website HERE.  They will be sent via standard AusPost to your nominated postal address.
