FAQs

Check below for detailed info. If your question isn't answered here, please get in touch.

How do we organise this?

No two families are the same, and no two situations are the same. Don't worry! Great photos come when you're relaxed and having fun in a place you love, and with the people you love. I'll fit in with your gang so that you'll capture the best of them for ever.

When is the best time for our photo shoot?

Of course I'll fit in with your availability to get the best from your shoot, no matter what the time of day. If you have the option, though, 1 - 2 hours before sunset the light is beautiful and golden and you're well into the day. If you're really keen, morning light, up to two hours post sunrise, has a beautiful calm vibe.

My shooting days are Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.

How do we book?

Easy, just drop me a line via the contact page and we'll have a chat to sort what kind of shoot you would like - a $200 deposit is required to secure your date in my calendar. Alternatively you can book directly via my booking site, or by clicking the Book Now button at the bottom of the page.

After that, I'll get in touch, and also send you a questionnaire to help you get the most from your session, and I'll check in with you in the week prior to your session to chat about preparation, weather forecasts and firm up your shoot location.

Where do we do the shoot?

This is where the fun kicks in. Is there a place that's special to you? Parks, trails and beaches are fantastic locations, or we can even do it in your own home and garden. Your photos will benefit from your personal connection with the place we use - you will be more relaxed and that will reflect in everything from the facial expressiona to the body language of everyone involved. Let's chat about location!

What if we get sick or the weather is bad on our photo shoot day?

We definitely live in interesting times with Covid adding the threat of sudden lockdowns, alongside the 'rained out' and 'kids' bugs going round' situations. We don't know what life will throw at us so let's not stress. If you get sick just give me 24 hours notice and we can reschedule. If the weather is looking iffy, I'll be contacting you just before your shoot anyway, and we can decide what to do then.

Are there any boring but important bits I should know?

Yes, yes there are:

  • I'm fully insured

  • I have a current SAPOL clearance

  • I'm double covid vaccinated
