Is there a session/booking fee?
Yes, there is a session/booking fee: it is $100 and it is non-refundable. The session fee goes towards your package price ie acts as a credit toward the package that you choose.
The fee can, however, be transferred but the session must be completed within 30 days of the original booking. The fee must be paid at the time of booking to secure your date.
The $100 fee reserves your time and date for a photographic session for up to 5 people. For each extra person, please add $15.00. The session will generally last 30 minutes to an hour.
Remember, this $100 is non-refundable should you choose not to go ahead with your booking.
Is there a minimum spend?
Yes, you need to spend at least $450.00 on prints. In total, your session and prints will cost you a minimum of $450.00
What should I expect?
Sessions shouldn’t be rushed, they should be FUN! Don’t try and get everyone to do the “smile for Kate” face – relaxed people equals fun, natural photos.
What should we wear?
Make sure the outfits you choose are a reflection of how you feel. That said, keeping it simple with denim shorts or jeans and T- shirts makes it pretty easy on the eyes.
As long as you try and avoid dateable clothing such as The Simpsons, Barbie, High School Musical etc. then most will be fine. A change of clothes is always a good option (but not necessary)! Bright is good! Vintage is delicious.
You may also choose to bring along a prop (if you like). For instance, if one of you loves playing the guitar or if your little one has a special toy or blanket, feel free to bring it and we will try and incorporate the item for memories sake. Anything interesting, quirky and special makes for great photography.
Where should we have our photos taken?
Locations can be almost anywhere! So many places can make great locations – the beach, skate park, paddock, train station, city street, alleyway, your place… anywhere that is special to you!
The most important thing is the right kind of light. For outdoor shoots, this generally means later in the afternoon but we can usually work around your availability – however midday sun is a no go!
Can I choose which photos I’d like?
Of course! Within two weeks of your session, you will be able to view your photos in a private, online gallery.
Please note that not all images taken during your session will be available – this is due to the fact that there will be strange faces being pulled, eyes closed, double images and more. Rest assured, you will receive the BEST of the images taken.
Access to your gallery will be available for 7 days only. Once you have ordered your photos, please allow up to three weeks for delivery.
