Your Questions Answered

What if we need to reschedule our session?

I understand that things happen! If you need to reschedule your session for any reason, the 50% paid to book in is non-refundable, however you can transfer it to another date. This allows for peace of mind if anyone can’t make it on the day – I just ask that you give me as much notice as is possible. A reschedule within an hour of your session start time or a no-show is treated as a cancellation and the 50% will be forfeited.

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 year is best to book?

I encourage sessions to be booked during the temperate months March – 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. I have a handy list of approximate start times depending on the month here.

How far in advance can we book?

Portrait sessions can be made up to 6 weeks in advance. Visit my booking page to get started!

What time are sessions?

My sessions are always timed around sunset for beautiful natural light. We’ll schedule your session to begin during the Golden Hour, scheduled to end just after the sun sets. If you have little ones, I understand this can be a tough time of day – but it’s so worth it for beautiful memories!

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 that I’ve picked out! Set on a special place of your own? I would love to accommodate your request! Just let me know when booking.

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 session will be available to view within 14 days and when they’re ready, you’ll receive a beautiful online gallery to share with family and friends and to download your high resolution images. These copies are yours to keep and you can share them and make as many prints as you like! I do also have a fantastic range of professional prints and products available to purchase via your online gallery if you’d like to.

How do we book?

That’s the easy part! Begin by choosing which session type you would like, then choosing a date from my calendar (up to 6 weeks in advance), paying 50% of your session to secure your date and then choosing the perfect outdoor location!  Here’s the link to book your portrait session

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 30 x 20″. I always recommend professional printing of any images you would like to display for the best quality, colour reproduction and longevity. My packages you can choose from include digital only options or a great range of prints and products to choose from at discounted prices.

Do you photographs newborns / babies?

I love working with kids! However my focus is on couples and families with toddlers+, so I ask that parents book family portraits with me only when baby is 12 months or older. If you’re wanting to book family portraits with a newborn / baby under 12 months there are some wonderful local photographers who specialise in baby photography that I would be happy to recommend.

When will we see our photos?

All the images you receive 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 session will be ready to see within 14 days.

How are the photos delivered?

Your photos are delivered digitally through your own easy to use personalised online gallery – download your photos right to your phone, laptop or desktop computer. There’s even an online store available in your gallery to order prints and products.
