Where is your studio located?
I am located in Townsville, proudly serving clients throughout Townsville, Ayr, Ingham and outer lying areas in Queensland. My studio is located at 17 Crake Circuit, The Village, Oonoonba Qld 4811
Do you travel to client’s homes to do sessions?
All sessions take place in my cosy and relaxing studio where everything is set up ready to go for your session – you won’t need to do a thing except feed bub if need be. I also have my various products on display that you can ooh and ahh over!
When is the best time to do maternity sessions?
The ideal time is between 32 and 36 weeks.
When is the best time to do a newborn session?
I love to capture natural and cozy shots of newborn babies typically between 1-3 weeks of age – this is when they are still nice and sleepy and curly and baby acne and flaky skin usually haven’t appeared. In saying that though we can still get the beautiful newborn shots up until 5 weeks of age.
I’ve missed the newborn age, when is the next best age to photograph?
Between 4 to 10 months of age. This is when we can capture lots of beautiful wide-eye shots, smiles and giggles. Between 7 to 10 months is one of my favourite ages – babies are usually sitting up by themselves and there are lots of lovely smiles, chubbiness and personality!! Delicious!
How long does the session last?
Newborn sessions generally last around 2-3 hours, with time for feeds and settling etc. and the session is never rushed – It’s very easy-going and stress-free for all involved. Maternity and baby sessions usually last around 1 hour.
When should I book my session?
It is highly advisable to book your session as early as possible to avoid missing out. I limit the amount of sessions per month to ensure the highest quality of service to each individual client. The best time to book a newborn session is whilst you are still pregnant to ensure your special date is reserved. A tentative date for your newborn session will be made based on your due date – if your baby arrives earlier or later than expected another suitable date will be arranged. If you have already had your baby please still contact me as I may still be able to fit you in and if I can’t I will be happy to refer you to some other photographers who also have expertise in newborn photography.
What does the session/booking fee cover?
Your session fee includes up to 3 hours of custom photography at my studio, professional editing of your images, with approximately 30 final images presented to you at in in-person viewing session from which to make your selections. It does not include any digital files, prints or products. Packages, prints etc are then purchased separately.
What do I need to wear and what should I bring?
Once you have booked your session, I will send you a What to Wear Guide.
Do you offer gift vouchers?
Yes, you can purchase for any amount and we will send you a voucher in the mail.
What if I need to reschedule?
I understand that unforeseen circumstances can arise, so if you must change your session date please contact me at your earliest opportunity. Please note that the booking fee is non-refundable but can be transferred to another date.
When will our photos be ready to view and how do we order them?
Approximately 1 week after your photo session your images will be ready for you to view at the studio. Our presentations are conducted in a theater-style room where your images are projected onto a large screen. Viewing all your photos can be overwhelming. Before the appointment, we ask that you think about where you would like to hang your portraits or any albums that you would like. We will help you with selecting the photos that you love and also making sure that you only receive the images you want. When you have chosen your photos we will design your wall art together to ensure your wall portrait reflects the colours of your home and looks like it should be on the wall. We want you to love your photos and the products you choose. Take a look at our products page for ideas.
