BOOKING YOUR SESSION
A booking fee and completed Booking Form is due at the time of your booking to hold your session date and time. Session fees are non-refundable.
Standard sessions last between 45-90 minutes for maternity and family sessions, and 3-4 hours for a newborn session.
Recommended to be done when you are between weeks 32-36. Stand alone maternity sessions can either be a studio portrait or outdoor sunset shoot. Partners are also welcome.
Babies are best photographed between 7-16 days old however, babies older than this are also welcome if I have availability. I recommend that you book your newborn session while you are still pregnant so I can pencil your due date in my diary. This is important as I only take on two due dates per calendar week to allow free days for babies that come earlier or later than expected. This is how I guarantee your booking no matter when your baby arrives.
Once your baby is born it is important to contact me via email firstname.lastname@example.org or via text on 0403 534 413 within 24-48 hours so I can confirm a day and time for your newborn session.
Sibling and parent shots are also included in your newborn session if requested. It is important to let me know ahead of time if there will be sibling shots as these will take place in the first 15-20 minutes of the session (if they co-operate). The remainder of the session will be focused on baby alone. It is an important requirement that all children must be taken home as soon as I have finished photographing them so the studio is kept calm and quiet. Having someone come along to take your other children home is appreciated.
A complimentary 1st birthday session is also included in your newborn session.
Family sessions are usually held outside on location in a rustic outdoor setting and are best done late in the afternoon when the light is at its best. Up to two weeks notice is required for all family session bookings.
Prices are subject to change at any time without notice, however current pricing is honoured once booking form and session fee have been received. Session fees are non-refundable, If you purchase a digital collection the session fee is included in the price and will be deducted from your purchase order.
