WHEN DO YOU RECOMMEND I BOOK?+
It is recommended you book your session/s as soon as possible as I only have limited availability each month. If you would like to book a Newborn session please make sure you get in touch during your pregnancy. Sitter & Family sessions are generally easier to accommodate at a later time although it is still best to book in advance.
HOW LONG DOES A SESSION GENERALLY TAKE?+
My Newborn Sessions usually take around 2 hours, although I tell my clients to allow up to 3 hours depending on how cooperative bubs is on the day. For all other sessions I would generally allow up to an hour.
HOW MANY PEOPLE MAY I BRING TO MY SESSION?+
My studio is quite an intimate space so please just immediate family members, Mum, Dad, Newborn and Siblings.
HELP I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO WEAR?+
Don’t stress about what to wear, here’s some tips to consider! Coordinating colours, not matching – pick a couple of colours and choose clothes that will fit within this colour scheme. Limit patterns – having an outfit in the mix that has complimenting colours is fine, however not everyone in the photo should wear patterns as it may distract the final image. Same goes with Characters and Logos, please don’t! Look at your home décor –do you like bright colours? Neutrals? Since you will be hanging these photos in your house you want to make sure the colours of your clothes go with the colour scheme of your home. Plan ahead – once you book your session, start thinking of the clothes right away. You may think certain clothes will fit your kids or that one dress is clean. If you wait until the day of or day before you may run into the issue of clothes not fitting, being dirty or need to be dry cleaned. Be comfortable – make sure what you choose to wear is most of all comfortable! (maybe not your favourite trackies but something you have pride in wearing). Lay it out – lay out each family member’s outfit together while planning. This way you’ll have a good idea about how the pieces will look next to each other and you’ll soon see what works and what doesn’t. Think simplistic – these photographs will be hanging on your walls and treasured for years to come. By choosing simple, classic clothes you will help give your images a timeless feel.

WHAT IS THE TEMPERATURE IN THE STUDIO FOR MY NEWBORN?+
The studio is set at 26°c to ensure bubs is comfortable throughout the session as we will be undressing them at times. I also tend to use a small fan heater near them when undressed to help regulate their temperature.
WHAT HAPPENS IF MY BABY CRIES OR GETS FUSSY?+
It is important to start the session with bub’s having a full tummy so I recommend feeding them once you arrive. We can always take a break and let them have another feed during the session if they become a little fussy. This is also pretty normal. We will work through their fuss with warmth, some rocking and a bit of patience.
WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO RECEIVE MY PACKAGE/ORDER?+
Depending on which package and/or products you choose can vary on print/production times etc. but please allow up to 6 weeks to receive your completed package and products from your session date.
