FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Portrait session fees are charged at a flat rate of $200. This cost covers a pre-session styling consultation, your personalised session, professional editing of your images by me personally (I don’t outsource) and your personal studio viewing and ordering session.
Prints and packages are available for purchase at your ordering session. You can view all my pricing details HERE.
The best part? There is no minimum spend… You only buy what you love!
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
I want you to be the focus of your session, not your outfit so stick to what makes you feel great!
The trick to dressing the family is to dress as though you’re only one person. Plain clothes with no distracting patterns or logos is key. Also, if you all keep to the same tonal range, you won’t be competing against each other in the images (think creams, beiges and browns together or whites, greys and blacks)
If you are looking for some inspiration, I’ve put together a PINTEREST BOARD with some great styling tips and examples.
I have an extensive range of high quality maternity gowns, newborn props and sitter outfits that are all available to you for your session/s.
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY MATERNITY/NEWBORN SESSIONS?
To avoid disappointment, I always recommend booking your maternity and newborn sessions when you hit your second trimester. I only book a certain number of newborn sessions per month to ensure the flexibility required for when baby decides to make their grand entrance to the world. When booking we will allocate your session a week after your due date, then when baby is here we will confirm the date and time of your session.
Maternity sessions are best held between 30 and 34 weeks.
Newborn sessions are best held in the first 21 days.
Your signed portrait agreement and session fee is required in full to secure your booking.
HOW LONG DO PORTRAIT SESSIONS GO FOR?
I believe in giving children time to get comfortable because when we're having fun, we're going to get some amazing results. That’s why portrait sessions are never rushed. A typical family session lasts between 45 minutes and 1 hour. Maternity sessions are around the same to allow for outfit changes.
Newborn sessions are 100% baby-led, meaning I work around the needs of your baby. I allow plenty of time for feeding, cuddles and soothing so newborn sessions can last a couple of hours.
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY WEDDING?
I have limited availability for wedding bookings and often book out 12-18 months in advance. The best time to book your photographer is directly after you have booked your venues.
Your signed wedding agreement and holding retainer is required in full to secure your booking.
CAN I BUY ALL THE UNEDITED IMAGES?
Digital images are included in all our packages and only the best of the best are available for purchase. I do not release RAW or unedited files under any circumstances. Hours are spent editing and perfecting your images and the final product is why you’ve chosen a professional photographer in the first place.
