FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

So, you're ready to book your lifestyle session and get some beautiful images of you and your family and wondering what's next? I can't wait to capture these memories for you and I want you to feel at ease in deciding on your photographer. So, I've put together some FAQ's to help you prepare and get you feeling confident and excited to book!

 

Whether it is an in-home lifestyle session, outdoor family session or loved up motherhood session, I've got you covered! When you are ready to book, head over to my contact page and get in touch! I'll respond within 48 hours and answer any burning questions you have!

WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?

Styling your family for your photography session is sometimes a challenging experience! I have come up with some ideas and tips that will hopefully help guide your styling decisions and make it a little easier for you to prepare for your session- this will be sent to you once your booking is confirmed.

 

Generally, keeping it simple is best. Think natural fabrics, like linen and cotton and wool in winter. Using different textures like denim, silk and soft patterns are a great way to add layers and depth to your images. Check out one of my Pinterest boards below for some family styling ideas.   

Remember, when you book with me, helping style your lifestyle session is all a part of the service! I offer an intimate client wardrobe too, so if you are at a loss for clothing, I've got you covered! We can discuss this together when you are ready to book!

HOW SHOULD WE STYLE OUR HOME?

Keep it real! A tidy home is great, but please don't take away any of the things that make it YOURS. I do ask that you open blinds and curtains and turn off lights. I photograph using natural light, so the more that floods through your home, the better! 

WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS OR IF WE ARE SICK?

On the day of your session, I will confirm your time and update any weather conditions with you. If heavy rain is forecast, we will reschedule your session. If it rains during your session, we will embrace it!  Think moody overcast skies and dancing in the rain scenes!

If you or I are sick, we will reschedule your session. I will let you know asap if this happens, I would hate to pass any sickness onto your little ones. 

WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY MATERNITY SESSION? 

Congratuations Mumma! Pregnancy is such a magical time and such a beautiful season of our lives. Motherhood photography is about capturing the connection that you have with your baby inside and the feelings and emotions that you have with your body; the vessel that is growing your little human! 

 

There is no "perfect time" to capture your maternity journey. Many clients choose to wait until about 32-34 weeks of their pregnancy, so their bump is full and round. Others prefer to capture the early days, while they are feeling well and not too tired. Motherhood is magical, no matter what trimester you are in! I offer Milk Baths in my Mount Cotton studio, as well as "Bump to Baby" packages that capture the entire journey. 

It is best to get in touch as soon as possible, so you don't miss out on your date. Unfortunately, pregnancy doesn't wait for us! 

WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY NEWBORN LIFESTYLE SESSION?

Newborn lifestyle sessions are just as much beautiful as magical. Your baby is Earth side and growing at a rapid rate! So, it is best to book your newborn lifestyle session as soon as possible! We want to capture your newborn within it's first week of life, so having a date booked in advance is a must! I only take select handful of newborn sessions per month, and the spots fill fast! To avoid disappointment, try and get in touch as soon as you can and we can get your birth month secured.
