Frequently Asked Questions

Do we come to you, or do you come to us?

You come to me. I have a purpose built home studio that is all set up and ready to make some magic happen! Don’t worry, I will take care of you. You just need to make your way over and I will handle the rest.

 

Where is your studio located?

My studio is located in Melbourne’s northern suburb of Lalor. Only 20kms from Melbourne CDB.

 

Are you fully vaccinated?

Yes, I am fully vaccinated. I have also had my booster against Whopping cough.

 

How far along should I be for my maternity portraits?

Maternity portraits are best taken when you are between 32-37 weeks pregnant.

 

When should I book my maternity session?

I would suggest booking your maternity session when you are around 20 weeks.

 

How many days old should my newborn be for their portraits?

Newborn portraits are best taken between 6-10 days of life. However, up to 3 weeks is also good. After 3 weeks, you will find that the periods of when your baby is awake gets longer and therefore a lot harder to get those cute sleepy portraits.

 

When should I book my newborn session?

Booking before your baby is born is recommended to secure an appointment and ensure availability. Likewise with maternity sessions, I suggest when you are around 20 weeks or earlier.

 

What happens if I book my session after my baby is born and they are older than 3 weeks?

Babies 3 weeks and older are still adorable to photograph. Just because you missed the newborn time frame does not mean you should not have your baby photographed. All this mean is that they will be posed a little differently; you have more shots of them awake and wrapped. Please give me a call to see if I have availability, otherwise I may be able to recommend another photographer if I don’t..

 

How long do your sessions take?

Each session varies in time. As a guide:

  • Maternity & Baby sessions take around 1-1.5hrs
  • Newborn session take around 2-3hrs

 

What should I wear?

At the time of booking, you will receive a welcome guide which will have information about what wear as well as what to bring to your session.

 

What happens after my session?

After I finish taking your beautiful portraits, we will have a seat and arrange a time for you and all the decision makers to return to the studio for your viewing and ordering appointment. This is approximately 2 weeks after your session.

During your viewing and ordering appointment I will take you through a slide show of your portraits and I will guide you through the process of choosing products to suit your style and budget.

 

Do you offer gift vouchers?

Yes, I do offer gift vouchers. You may allocate any amount you wish.
