Questions are good
Scroll down to take a peak at some of my most frequently asked questions
What’s your style
My style is rich, emotional photos that tell a story and are edited to enhance their depth and power. My approach to photography is very fly-on-the-wall – I don’t ask you to fake emotions, I just make sure I’m there to capture them naturally! Check out my Stories for examples of my work.
Can we give you a shot list?
Feel free to send over examples of photos you like, as it will help me determine if I’m the right photographer for you. However, these will be used for inspiration only – I want to give you unique photographs that tell your story, not someone else’s!
When should I make an appointment for a photo session?
As early as possible! Family, lifestyle and portrait sessions will need to be booked at least 2 weeks in advance. For newborn photography sessions, we need a little more notice – please see below.
When should I book a newborn session?
Ideally, at least 2-3 months before your due date, but at a minimum 1 month. If your baby is born earlier or something else happens, just email me and we will find a solution together. Please confirm the photo session within 3 days after the birth.
When is the best time for newborn sessions?
The best time for a newborn session is between the 5th and 21st days of your baby’s life. This is the time when the baby is asleep the most (yes, really!), is less alert and has no colic yet. Of course, there are different rules for premature babies – then the date is set individually.
Are two parents needed for a newborn session?
Not at all! If both parents want to be in the photos, then yes. Otherwise, one parent is enough. If you have twins, it would be helpful if both parents or another adult close to the family takes part.
How long is a newborn session?
Usually, newborn sessions take about 3 hours – but each child is different, so it can take anywhere from 2 – 4 hours. It is worth reserving some extra time out of your day, just in case! Of course, during the session hours there is time for feeding, changing and putting to sleep. Everything happens calmly and without any pressure, to make sure you and your baby feel comfortable and safe.
When should I book a pregnancy session?
First of all, congratulations! If you’re expecting, the ideal time for a photo session is between 28-34 weeks of your pregnancy. Please aim to book 2 months in advance of the date you’d like to reserve.
Do I need to have my hair and makeup done before a photo session?
This is entirely up to you. If you would like your hair and makeup done before a photo session, then go for it! If not, don’t worry, it’s not necessary. I can create beautiful natural photos of you without makeup. I do, however, just ask that you matt your face with powder before our session, so that your face is not too shiny in photos.
How do payments work?
A 50% non-refundable deposit and a signed contract is required to officially reserve your date (this saves your date just for you and no one else!) Your remaining balance will be due 30 days before the session.
What will get us the best photos?
The best advice I can give you is to relax, be in the moment, and try to enjoy it! That’s what’s going to give you the best photos. Don’t fall into the trap of overplanning your shots – this will only cause you stress. I will help you with everything, so don’t worry!
How do we book?
Just scroll down to the bottom of any page and fill out a contact form to get started! I will reply to discuss your dates and requirements.
Will we get sneak peeks?
Yes, I try to send sneak peaks within 72 hrs.
