Choosing a family photographer for life
Choosing a family photographer is something you only want to do once. We believe when you find the right photographer they should be able to document your family over the years. Getting to know your photographer and what to expect from a session makes it more meaningful each time. As an added bonus your artwork and photos remain consistent. Allowing you to add to a photo wall or decorate your home with photos that work well together over the years. Our clients continue to update their family photos with us even when they have moved as far as Canberra and Sydney.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How soon should we book our photo shoot?
Bookings are made a few weeks ahead but sometimes up to 6 months. We do also have spots become available last minute. So if you’re looking at next week just get in touch and see if we can fit you in.
Do you travel?
Yes travel is included within 100km from the studio in Nowra, NSW Australia. Usually Bulli-Milton. Outside of these areas travel fees apply.
Can we do our photo session on a weekend?
Absolutely fine, Saturday’s and select Sundays are available.
My child is very shy, won’t sit still or has a disability is this going to be a problem for photos?
Not at all, we have years of experience working with different personalities and children with disabilities. Just let me know before hand so I know how to organise the session to get the best result for your child.
Do you have a Working With Children Permit and whooping cough vaccination?
Yes my assistants and I have WWCC permits to work safely with your children. We are also up to date with all the necessary vaccines to work with newborns.
What time of day is best for photos?
I find it’s best to book around the routine of the youngest child. So when are they not hungry or tired. Usually I book shoots in the morning or afternoon depending on the family & location.
What should we wear to our family photo session?
You do not need to come matching. Neutral colours are better than strong patterns like stripes. But textures look good, so think wool, silk, lace, linen. I suggest placing all the clothes together to see if they work as a collection. Make sure you can move freely jump, bend, sit without needing to adjust the clothing. Hats and accessories can look great too.
How long until our photos are ready?
You will receive a sneak peek a few days after the photo shoot for you to share on social media. Then the full collection is ready for you to view & order in 1-2 weeks. Once you have made your order, photos take 3-6 weeks depending on what you have ordered.
Do you sell digital files?
Yes digital file collections are available as well as many other formats like prints, frames, canvas etc.
Do you offer professional framing?
Yes if you would like it all done for you and simply collect your framed images ready to hang I can organise this. There are many framing options to choose from to suit your home. Having it images framed professionally also means that it really is guaranteed to last generations as they use archival card, tape and frames are fully sealed from dust and moisture.
Do you offer payment plans?
Yes, I want my photography to be accessible to all families regardless of their current financial situation so I offer a few payment plan options. Now accepting AfterPay which allows you to split your order into 4 fortnightly payments. More Info on AfterPay HERE

I have my pricing setup to be accessible for any budget so whether you just want one or two images to capture this time of your life or you want a full collection, is entirely up to you.
