Ready to Begin?


What if it's raining?

Well the best part about family portraits is that we can always reschedule for a time when the weather is better!

When is the best time of day for photos?

The best light for portraits is within the first 2 hours of sunrise and the last 2 hours of sunset! My favourite time being the last 30 minutes before sunset.
I also have a few locations we can shoot at if these times don't work for you.

Where is the best location?

I do love the beach and have a few locations I use but I also love going to new places. I'm more than happy to travel to a place that is special to you.

What do we wear?

To be honest, I really like my clients to be themselves, dress to your style and wear what you feel comfortable in. Some tips: It's great if everyone dresses in a similar colour palette - the colours don't have to be the same but for an example you could stick with a neutral palette.. Also try to avoid bold patterns and writing as these might date quite quickly and also give you something to focus on rather than your beautiful faces.

Do you require a deposit and do you have payment plans available

Yes a 20% non-refundable deposit is required upon booking. You are more than welcome to make small payments as often as you like to pay your sessions off. And credit card payments are available.

What are your prices for a Newborn Session?

Newborn sessions are currently that same prices as above - I would HIGHLY recommend not to book a shorter session though as the time and amount of photos isn't enough.

What if I wanted to book in more than one session

I value all my clients and there's nothing I love more than getting to watch families grow. I now offer 10% off your next session if you book within 2weeks of receiving your final photos. This works so well if you were wanting to do maternity, NB, 6months, 1 year and beyond. OR if you were thinking you'd like to do yearly sessions.
