Frequently Asked

Can I have all images?

To protect creative integrity, I only release edited images for your selection.

What should I wear for my photoshoot?

My style is quite artistic using natural light.

It is best to choose warm, neutral or earthy tones.

I would recommend you steer clear of loud prints, board shorts (for me), and rock or slogan shirts.

For women, dresses are available as part of the package.

Can I reuse images from your site?

All images are protected by copyright, and may only be used in accordance with your contract.

This prohibits you from screenshotting images and reusing.

Clients are provided digital images to print in line with their package.  

Please respect this

What are the payment terms?

A deposit is required to secure your booking, and must be paid within 3 days of booking your package.

Failure to pay this deposit may result in you losing your booking & it being released to the waitlist of clients.

No shows will also be required to pay the amount in full.

what happens if I need an emergency cesarean?

For those who have booked a package which includes birth, it will depend on COVID conditions.

I will generally hand the camera to a nurse or partner and collect the following day.

How long until I get my images?

Editing is the longest part in a creative process.

To prepare a gallery, please allow 4 weeks.

When it is ready, an email will be sent with an an online gallery attachment.

Is there a client wardrobe?

I have a range of beautiful dresses for women to choose from, covering maternity and golden hour shoots.

For editorial packages relating to personal branding, influencers, or fashion edits, please organise your own wardrobe & outfit changes.
