When is a good time to have a family photos session? Often Milestones like being pregnant and having a newborn baby prompt us to take photographs but you don't need a major milestone to document your family. In my opinion, life slips by so quickly and it is so special to flick back through images to remember periods of your life, particularly the ordinary everyday parts. Any time is a good time to have a documentation of your life.
What age do we recommend for newborn sessions? To reduce stress on you and so the baby is slightly more interactive and has some neck strength, newborn lifestyle sessions work well when your baby is 3-8 weeks old. You can have the photographs taken earlier or later than 3-8 weeks, this is just a suggestion. Unlike posed baby studio portraits, with a lifestyle session you don't need to stress about getting photographs within the first 10 days. Better still, we come to you and you can relax at home and work to your normal routine with your baby. Parents with more than one child find this extra beneficial.

Are the photos edited? Yes, all your photos will be sorted and edited for colour and exposure. We don't do crazy photoshop manipulation of your body, skin or the environment. We like to get things looking great in camera and only do "polishing" of beautiful images. Our philosophy is embracing you how you are and truthful photographs.
Do you get the photographs on a USB? No, we provide an online gallery in place of USB's as we have found USB's to be unreliable and fail over time. With an online gallery you have the peace of mind you will not lose your electronic files.
Can you print the photos anywhere? Yes, you can enjoy them and share them with friends. I'd love to hear that you have printed them and not left them on the computer.
How long before you receive the online gallery of your images? We aim for 6 weeks unless something unforseen happens. Do we offer albums? Yes and we love doing them.
Is a deposit required? Yes, a $200 deposit is required to make a Family Photo Session booking. When your deposit is paid and agreement signed, the date and time will be secured for you.
What happens if you need to cancel or reschedule your booking? If you need to cancel your booking entirely the deposit is not refundable but can be transferred to another service if 2 weeks notice is given. You can reschedule your booking with 2 weeks notice. If it rains and we had planned to be outside, we can reschedule on the day at no cost to you.
For newborn sessions, you only need to book an approximate date and this can be changed at anytime with 4 days notice. We understand that the arrival of a baby can be variable and unknown.
Do we offer birthing photos? No sorry not at this stage.
Don't like having your photo taken and posing! No troubles, don't be concerned. We love to capture candid moments and only do minimal posing for family photo sessions.
Should you send me a pinterest board? We work best when shooting to our own style and not reproducing someone else's work.
Let us capture your life. Book your family photo session now.
