Frequently Asked Questions...

Where are On Location Portrait Sessions held?

 

All On Location Portrait Sessions are held outdoors of a late afternoon, starting 1.5 hours before sunset. I can travel to a location of your choosing (travel fee's may apply to areas outside of Muswellbrook), or I can recommend a number of locations for you to consider.

 

 

Where are Studio Portrait Sessions held?

 

All Studio Portrait Sessions are held in my Muswellbrook based Studio where I can offer professional studio lighting and a huge range of high quality internationally and locally sourced props, bonnets, wraps & headbands (I'm a tad addicted to prop shopping!!). This allows us to design portraits that are perfectly yours, suited to your individual style.

When is the best time to book?

 

Portrait Session times often book out well in advance, so it's never too early to book!

Maternity Sessions: It's best to book in for your Maternity Session when you are between 32 to 36 weeks. This timeframe is ideal for a beautiful round bump!

Newborn: As babies decide when to make their entrance into the world, it can be hard to lock in a session date at the time of booking. To make this easier, how it works is that a "spot" is held for you in the month that you are due, and then when your baby arrives we confirm a date for your session, ideally when your baby is between 6 to 10 days old.

Cake Smash: It's best to book in for Cake Smash portrait sessions when your baby is between 10 to 12 months old. As a tip, some clients prefer to book at 10 months so the pictures can be used for 1st birthday party invitations!

 

What's included?

A range of Portrait Packages are available in the Price Menu. After your portrait session, I will typically post a "Sneak Peek" of your session to my social media pages within 72 hours.

 

I will then carefully shortlist your images and upload them to a "Soft Proofing" password protected online gallery where you can view and choose your favourite images.*

 

After you have made your portrait selections, I will then focus on final retouching of your portraits - generally this takes 2 to 3 weeks. Your finalised portraits are then delivered to you by either USB or on-line delivery, as detailed in the packages below. Portraits are provided in both Colour + Black & White.

 

* Soft Proofing Galleries are not applicable for pages whereby final portraits are selected by PBG

Can I buy prints & albums?

A beautiful range of carefully sourced products such as  Prints, Albums, Canvas's, Wood Photo Blocks and Birth Announcement Cards are available as an addition to any PBG Package.

 

What Payment Options are available?

A non-refundable session fee of $150 is required to be made at the time of booking to secure your portrait session date.

Session fee balances are then payable by the session date. Payment can be made by Cash or Bank Transfer. Payment plans can be arranged upon request.
