YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

WHAT IS A SESSION FEE?

Your session fee is payable when you book to secure your chosen date/time in my calendar. Session fees cover the photographers time and talent, personal styling of your session, professional editing and presentation of your images at your viewing and ordering appointment. Pre purchase your session voucher HERE.

WHERE DO SESSIONS TAKE PLACE?

Newborn sessions take place in my home studio in Mount Annan. 

Family sessions are held on location in or around the Macarthur area. If you have a special spot that you would like to have your portraits taken I am more than happy to chat about it. (Please note: locations more than 40km outside Mount Annan will incur a small travel fee) I can also suggest some beautiful local areas if you are unsure.

WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?

For newborn sessions I recommend you wear something light and comfortable. Neutral colours are always timeless and less likely to date. Families should try to avoid bold logos or slogans as this can distract from your images. Keep it simple and most of all comfortable. I will send you a guide prior to your session to help you get organised.

DO WE NEED TO BRING PROPS?

You are not required to bring any props to your session, unless you have something special or sentimental that you would like to include. If this is the case, I just ask that you send me a pic of what you have so we can discuss and plan how you would like it featured in your portraits.

With kids it is sometimes nice to bring a favourite toy or book to your family session. This can help bring out your child's personality and show who they are right now. Of course if you don't want 'blankie' in your family portraits probably best to leave him at home!

WHAT IF MY BABY DOESN'T SLEEP?

Don't panic, this can sometimes happen. I have a few tricks I can try, and we can offer bub an extra cuddle and a top up feed, but if all else fails we can always swaddle baby in one of my wraps and get some nice awake shots. If bub is particularly unsettled we may discuss a reschedule but this is an absolute last resort.

HOW LONG UNTIL OUR IMAGES ARE READY TO VIEW?

We will arrange a viewing and ordering session to take place 7-14 days after your portrait session. This is where you will get to view your beautiful portraits and choose which ones you would like to keep forever. All orders are finalised and paid for at your viewing and ordering session, and your order will be ready for collection approx 3 weeks later.

DO WE GET THE DIGITAL FILES?

You will receive the matching Hi-res digital file for every image that you purchase in print or albums. Digital only packages are not available.

WHAT PAYMENT OPTIONS DO YOU OFFER?
WHAT IF WE NEED TO RESCHEDULE?
DO YOU OFFER GIFT CERTIFICATES?
WHAT IF IT RAINS?

It is best to get in touch soon after your 12 week scan to book your newborn session. I have a limited number of sessions per month in order to offer the best possible service and turn around times for my clients. Of course if you have already had your bub please feel free to get in contact asap, I will do everything I can to fit you in. I believe everyone deserves beautiful memories of their brand new baby!

I can take cash, debit card, Visa or Mastercard. I also have interest free payment plans available through Payright.

Session fees are non-refundable, but can be rescheduled up until 48hrs prior to your session. Requests to reschedule within 48hrs of your booking time may incur a booking reschedule fee.

In the case of bad weather for outdoor sessions, I will get in contact prior to your session to discuss rescheduling. If this happens, there will be no rescheduling fee.

I sure do. Visit my BUY A VOUCHER page to select the voucher type and pay online. Vouchers will be sent via Australia Post, or we can arrange a collection time that suits us both.

OK, WE ARE READY TO BOOK, WHAT NEXT?

That's great! Simply click here to purchase your session voucher and then fill in the contact form. I will be in touch within the next 48hrs to discuss the details of your perfect portrait session.
