Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What sets you apart from other photographers?
You, as my clients are my top priority! My mission is to provide you with the best customer service I can give. You can contact me anytime. My purpose is to create Heirloom Art for your home that I know you will love for many years to come.
Having had babies myself, I understand the emotions of having a new baby and wanting to keep them safe and healthy. My studio is purposefully designed for newborns and babies with their health and safety top of my list. This is the perfect time to adore your newborn while being safely handled by me.
I have clients tell me they love their images and are so happy with the final products. I’ve also been called ‘The Baby Whisperer’ for my talent in settling their newborns!
Q: When should we book….
I recommend booking in your second trimester. Because I only take a limited number of sessions per month, I recommend you book as soon as you have decided on me photographing your baby.
Q: We’ve booked a newborn session, when will the actual session take place….
All newborns are photographed under 12 days old, this is when they are sleepiest and tolerate pose changes easier. Please contact me within 24-48 hours of your baby being born so we can schedule the actual session date. Newborn sessions are booked M-F, starting at 9.30am. Due to current family commitments, weekends are unavailable.
Q: Can I still book if my baby is already born….
Yes of course! I suggest you contact me as soon as possible so I can try and fit you in my schedule.
Q: Do newborn sessions include family and siblings….
Absolutely! You as the parents are encouraged to have a portrait with your new baby. Newborns grow and change so quickly, you want to remember how small they were in your arms and the love of their siblings.
Q: When will we see our images….
A sneak peek will usually be loaded to social media on the same day as your session. 2-3 weeks after your session your images will be ready to view back in the studio at your ordering session. This is when you will view your images and take another look at the products I offer. Your order is placed at this time so all decision makers need to be present. Payment plans are available for amounts over $1200.
Q: Do you offer payment plans?
Yes, payment plans can be organised in the lead up to your session between us. This is a great option to help budget for your photo products. Payment plans can also be used at your ordering appointment. For more details please contact me.
