Your Questions Answered

What can we expect?

My sessions are very relaxed, but also fast moving and fun to keep big kids and little kids alike entertained and engaged. I find the best moments are captured when you forget the camera is even there, so I’ll make sure you’re relaxed and enjoying natural interactions with each other to capture those authentic moments you’ll love!

What time of day is best?

Your photo session will be scheduled to begin approximately 1 hour before sunset, this is to ensure we have the best possible natural light for beautiful results. If your little ones are better in the morning, we can also schedule a sunrise session.

Can we choose the location?

Absolutely! Beautiful locations enhance the look of your images, so I always recommend a picturesque spot for your session and have a great range of places I like to use that you can choose from. There are also some great options for pet-friendly locations.

What time of year is best to book?

I encourage sessions to be booked during the temperate months February – May and August – October. I understand this isn’t always possible, so am happy to schedule your session any time of year, just remember that in the summer months we’ll be starting very late in the day for the cooler weather and in winter, we’ll usually need to start earlier in the day to avoid the really cold weather at sunset. We can usually work out something to suit you and your family!

What if it rains?

The quality and style of my images relies on great natural sunlight. I’ll check the weather forecast and touch base with you several days before your session and if the forecast doesn’t look great (rain, heavy cloud, high winds or generally unstable weather), we will probably need to reschedule to another day. This ensures the best possible results from your investment.

What happens after the session?

I understand that we are all busy people! So I aim to make the process an easy and stress free one. After your session, you’ll receive a preview of my early favourite images on social media within a few days. Your entire gallery will be available to view within 14 days and you’ll have access for 30 days to view your photos and make your selections. Once you place an order, digital copies will be sent straight to you to download and prints / canvases generally arrive within 3-4 weeks.

Can our pet come?

Absolutely! I love photographing all the family, and up to two pets can be included in your session at no extra cost. There are a great range of pet-friendly locations we can choose from.

What should we wear?

Once you’re booked in, I’ll send you a comprehensive session preparation guide including help with outfit choices, tips for the best results and what to bring along with you.

Can we print the photos?

Of course! The photos you choose will be delivered to you in a high resolution size that is perfect for display on your computer, phone and sharing via email and are printable up to around 24 x 16″. I always recommend professional printing of any images you would like to display for the best quality, colour reproduction and longevity. An assortment of A La Carte prints and products are available within your online gallery.

When will we see our photos?

All the images you receive in your online gallery to choose from are beautifully enhanced by me, and this does take time. Because I know you can’t wait to see your images – you will receive a preview of some of my favourite images from your shoot within just 48 hours afterwards! Depending on my workload, your full gallery will be available for you to view around 10 -14 days after your session.

How are the photos delivered?

The high resolution copies of your photos are delivered to you digitally – you will receive a download link which I recommend downloading to your desktop computer of laptop. You can then make copies of that folder to back up / save to other devices. If you would like a hard copy of your images, USB’s are available at any additional $25, which you can add to your order in your online gallery.
