Q: where are you located?
A: My comfortable, cosy home studio is located in Heathmont, Victoria. My studio is an easy 20-minute drive from the city, via Eastlink, exiting at Canterbury Road, Ringwood.
I don’t travel to client homes.
Q: Why should i choose you?
A: I’m a perfectionist at heart. I work my hardest to give you the shots you desire, ensuring every little detail is taken care of. From the setups, to the editing of your photos to the quality of the products I supply, everything will be top notch!
(you can read my testimonials here)
I provide you with a boutique custom experience from start to finish, offering beautiful finished artwork and products that are ready to display in your home. I only book one photo session a day so I can concentrate on you and your precious one.
I love my babies! And with over 10 years experience I am continually inspired and excited by what I do. (you can read more about me here)
My business is fully insured and registered. I am fully immunised.
Q: what happens once i book a session?
A: Yay, go you! Booking a photoshoot can be nerve-wracking, but I promise I’ll make it easy for you!
Make contact with me here and we will discuss details of your session, select dates and I will then forward you an invoice for the session fee to hold your spot. Payment is usually made on-line via bank transfer, easy peasy!
To make your experience even easier you’ll receive access to my ‘client lounge’ upon booking. Here you’ll find detailed information about your session, including what to wear, what to bring and what to expect so that you are fully prepared and confident. (you can read my step by step guide here)
Q: can my husband/partner/other children take part in the session
A: Yes, absolutely! I encourage family members to attend and participate in the photography sessions and I do not charge extra for this, ever (unless they tell really bad dad jokes!)
Q: how long does each session last?
A: Newborn sessions generally last around 3 hours, with time for feeds and settling etc. and the session is never rushed - it’s very easy-going and stress-free for all involved. Newborn sessions start at 10:30am so you can miss the awful peak hour rush!
Maternity and baby sessions usually last around 1-1.5 hours.
Q: what if my baby poos, wees or vomits everywhere?
A: Don’t stress! This is completely normal for a baby and if it happens during your session I take it all in my stride. I have plenty of blankets, wraps and burp cloths - everything goes through the wash at the end of each session. (I’m pretty sure I should have shares in Napisan!)
Q: WHAT IF MY BABY WON’T SETTLE?
A: More often than not I am able to settle a baby after a good feed, and in the rare event that baby is having an off day and just won't settle I offer a re-shoot within the next few days of your session at absolutely NO cost to you.
Q: WHAT if i need to reschedule?
A: I understand that unforeseen circumstances can arise. If you must change your session date please contact me at your earliest opportunity.
Please note that the booking fee is non-refundable but can be transferred to another date.
Q: DO you offer gift vouchers?
A: Yes, however, gift vouchers are only available to partner/spouse involved. Custom photography involves a level of commitment both personally and financially and therefore I only make bookings directly with the actual client.
