Choosing a maternity & newborn 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
Do you have a studio?
Yes I do. The studio is a beautiful private space with natural window light and professional studio lighting setup on Rodway Arcade, just off Junction Street in Nowra.
How soon should we book our photo shoot?
I take bookings 1 week -6 months in advance so the sooner you book the better. As soon as you have an idea of timing then let’s pencil in a date and work towards it.
Do you travel?
Yes I travel within 100km from the studio in Nowra, NSW Australia. Usually Bulli-Milton. Outside of this area travel fees are required.
Can we do our photo session on a weekend?
Absolutely! I work every Saturday and select Sundays.
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, I have years of experience 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. I am also up to date with all the necessary vaccines to work with newborns.
What time should we have our photo shoot?
For baby and toddlers, I find it’s best to book around the routine of the youngest child. So when are they not hungry or tired. For babies they are usually good in the morning or after a midday nap.
For Maternity sessions I suggest 1hr before sunset is best for location shoots. Otherwise in the studio anytime 10am-5pm.
What should we wear to our maternity/newborn session?
You do not need to come matching! Neutral colours are better than strong patterns like stripes. Textures look really good so wear fabrics like wool, lace, silk, linen. I suggest placing all the clothes together to see if they work as a collection. Make sure you can move freely, bend, sit without needing to adjust the clothing.
For maternity sessions bring at least 2 outfits, think nice lingerie, long skirts, fitted dresses, jackets or vests.
For newborn sessions baby will be mostly nude or in a nappy or a wrap.
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 and start gushing over! 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 I have digital file collections available and many other options for 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. There are many framing options to choose from to suit your home. Professional framing is guaranteed to make sure your prints last many generations.
We love all our photos and want more then we can afford right now, 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. Also offering PayRight allowing you up to 12months to space out your payments, it’s so easy! Now you can catch your children at this age right now.
How much do you charge?
I do not box you into a large prepaid package. I understand every family is different and so have many options. Are you wanting lots of images for a photo wall or album? Do you just want 1 family photo beautifully framed ready to hang? I am very accomodating to your individual needs so please send me a quick email with what you’re after and I’ll send you relevant pricing info.
