frequently asked questions

.

What are your covid safety measures?

I am fully vaccinated and am more than happy to provide my vaccination certificate. I will wear a face mask during studio sessions and will do my best to maintain a distance of 1.5 meters where possible.

How do I book a session with you?

That’s easy! Submit an enquiry via my contact page and I will be in touch with you shortly to organize a date and time. Once we lock in the details, I will email you your invoice, contract and questionnaire to fill in before your session. Your booking is secured only once your deposit is paid and contract signed. This enables me to decline other potential clients for your chosen date.

How far in advance should I book?

To ensure availability, the ideal time to book in your maternity and newborn session is as soon as you know your due date or a few months in advance. Having said that, if your desired date for a session is sooner than a few months away please still reach out - I'll try my very best to find a date that suits.

What do we wear?

I have newborn clothing covered so no need to stress about getting anything. For mama, I’m proud to be able to offer a range of beautiful, quality dresses, each one available exclusively for my clients - complimentary with your session. With that said, you are more than welcome to choose your own wardrobe if you prefer. Prior to your session I will provide you with an easy to follow styling guide which includes wardrobe ideas for dads and any older children taking part in the shoot.

How long are your sessions?

All my sessions run for approximately 60 minutes. Couples or maternity sessions (with only the parents) usually finish quicker and newborns sometimes a bit longer.

Where is your studio located?

My studio is in Narre Warren South - a cosy area that will make you feel right at home. The studio is best suited for newborn sessions.

My kids won't sit still for photos!

That’s absolutely ok - in fact, they don’t need to! I want to capture your little one as they truly are and in the moment. I can bring along a speaker to play your favourite tunes and I encourage you to enjoy this time with your family. Love on them, share hugs and kisses, dance, chase each other and play their favourite games. Let them use their imagination. I’ll do the rest!

I'm nervous because I don't know how to pose for photos

There is no need to pose! All I need from you is to come prepared to be yourselves because that is what we want to capture. I will gently guide you into natural 'poses' or use prompts that bring out a range of emotions and real expressions. All you need to do is play with your child/ren, smother them in hugs and kisses or even take a small walk together.

Sunset sessions are too late for my kids

Sunset sessions during daylight savings are at 7:30pm as this is the golden hour with the most suitable light for outdoor photography. I understand that this can be your children's usual bedtime however they will surprise you. From my experience photographing children at this time, they absolutely love it.

How much are your sessions?

Sessions range in prices, starting at $499. The most popular package is $778, which includes a range of digital and printed images, a print store credit to use at my professional online print store, exclusive dress hire, styling appointment and choice of studio or outdoor location.
