Frequently Asked Questions
I'm having a baby! When is the best time to book my newborn session?
As soon as possible! As I book months in advance I always suggest to book and reserve your session once you begin your second trimester. Don’t worry about not knowing your babies exact birth date – by reserving your session early, you are guaranteed availability in the weeks surrounding your estimated due date. Once your little one has safely arrived, just let me know and we will find a date that suits you.
What is the best age for newborn photographs?
I do recommend newborn sessions are conducted in the first two weeks after your babies birth as this is generally the period when babies are at their sleepiest and happy to be moved and posed while they rest. I realize this isn’t always possible so if your little one or family needs a little more time, that’s fine too. Although I recommend the first two weeks, there are no age limits when it comes to photographing your baby.
Are you fully immunized?
I am fully immunized including the current Flu and whooping cough vaccinations. I will be receiving the COVID-19 vaccinations as soon as possible as part of the Governments ‘Phase 1b’ of the roll out.
How far along in my pregnancy should I be for a maternity session?
I generally suggest that maternity session are booked for between the 32-36 week period of your pregnancy whilst you are showing with your beautiful baby bump and still feeling relatively comfortable to stand and pose for photographs.
Are parent,sibling and family photos included in your maternity and newborn packages?
Parent, siblings and family photographs are included in all my maternity and ‘Silver’, ‘Gold’ and ‘Platinum’ newborn packages. It’s a special time for your family and it’s something I feel is extremely important to capture!

Yes each package contains a number of digital files. You will also receive the matching digital files to all additional album and print purchases.
Do you supply outfits?

I also carry a range of mainly white, ivory, pink maternity outfits which you are welcome to use during your session. I also have a large maternity wardrobe of 15 beautiful gowns and wraps that you are welcome to use during your session.

Yes of course! Some families prefer to pay their session off in advance through installments prior to their session. I am also able to offer interest free Payright payment plans to eligible customers.
Do you offer Gift Certificates?
Yes! Gift certificates are a great way to surprise a new mum or mum-to-be at her baby shower!
