FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

When should I book?


It is very important to book your photography session at your earliest convenience as I have extremely limited availability due to having bookings up to 4 months in advance.

Don't forget, you only need to pay a booking fee of just $150 to secure a session with me, with the balance due on the day of your session.This will guarantee you a definite session when bub arrives.
I will take your due date and usually book you in for the week after your due date. Once bub has arrived contact me in the first 48 hours so we can change the date if required and confirm the offical date of your session that suits us both.




What should I bring to my newborn session?


* Dummy (even if you don't use one at home they can be very useful for settling bub, purely for photos)
Everything you would usually pack in your baby bag
* A loose blanket/wrap to feed bub in
* Extra formula & bottles (if bottle fed)
* Drinks, lunch & snacks




What should I wear?


Wear something that makes your feel comfortable and confident! I will usually only photograph ypur top half for most parent and family shots.

MUM: Strapless tops photograph really well. It's so beautiful to see skin on skin with bub or a nice dress with texture.

DAD: A plain t-shirt with No prints OR knitted/textured jumpers photograph nicely.

I have everything for bub :)

SIBLINGS: Match your other children to you mum and dad that way everything flows nicely in the family shot.

The studio is kept quiet warm for baby too so wearing something to layer up or layer down will help keep you comfortable while you are not having your photos taken.

If you are still stuck on what to wear please reach out to us, we are piecing together a CLIENT CLOSET for you to take full advantage of. We may have just what you were looking for :)




What should I do before my session?


Before your session I ask that you give bub a feed before leaving home that way when you arrive we can undress bub and give a top up if needed. This way we can hopefully start of with a sleepy milk drunk baby and hop right into photos.

It is also easier to dress baby in something this is easy to take off and will not require removing over their head, this will help keep baby nice and relaxed. A zip up onzie without a singlet usually works best.




What happens after my session?


Within 48 hours of your session you will recieve a couple of edited images as a preview that you can use share on social media or send to family and friends.

Galleries typically have a 4-6 week turn around time depending on how busy my schedule is. You will choose your final images in an online gallery, the photos are RAW and unedited. Once you make your choices I can then edit your gallery. This includes exposure edits, colour edits, skin retouching etc.

Once your edits are complete you will then have the option to order any albums or wood prints. Delivery times can vary as product's are made and delivered from overseas.




How does payment work?


Your $150 session fee is due upon booking your session. The remainder of your package is due on the day of your session.

You will recieve an invoice/message for your session fee and then another for the remainder of your chosen package. Payments can be made through your invoice, bank transfer, cash or through our ANZ FASTPAY eftpos device.




Are you up to date with immunisations?


Yes absolutely! I have been vaccinated against whooping cough along with regular flu shots as I take the safety of new babies very seriously!




Refund Policy


If you cancel a session within 48 hours of making a booking you may recieve a refund unless the session is within 48 hours. A 10% administration fee will be deducted from the refund amount and paid into your nominated account with 7 business days.

Any cancelations after 48 hours of making your booking will recieve a credit towards any future sessions.

Any sessions rescheduled or cancelled within 48 hours of the session date will forefit your $150 booking fee.




What if my baby does not arrive on time or earlier?


Once you secure a date this secures a newborn session for you. Working in this industry I work strictly on baby time which means booking dates are flexible.
If baby arrives early or anything in your pregnancy changes all I ask that you let me know asap so that I have enough time to shuffle your date around.
f your session date is within 5 days and baby has still not arrived we will continue to push the date back until baby has safely entered the world.




Do you accept weekend bookings?


Due to the time allocated for newborn sessions at this point in time all newborn sessions are only offered on weekdays. This means planning time off work for dad and/or pre-school/school for children may be required if you are wanting to include the entire family in your session.

Maternity(studio/location) and Family sessions are available on weekdays and selected weekends. Due to limited availability if you are wanting a weekend session, booking up to 4 months in advance will be beneficial to secure a date.
