frequently asked questions...

outdoor photo sessions


These sessions are best when booked at golden hour, 1 to 2 hours before sunrise or sunset, at a location that is the best fit for your family dynamic and session goals. I work closely with you to plan all the important details!


Once you have booked and paid your session fee,

I will send you my location list that you can choose from that range from beach to woodlands.

I always scout out beautiful locations and aim to offer something for everyone, but if you have a particular location in mind I am more then happy to meet there.


There is a travel fee of $35 per hour when travelling 50 km or more from Donnybrook, W.A

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO BOOK A MATERNITY OR NEWBORN SESSION?



For maternity, every woman shows at different times or may want to book at a time that they feel the most "glowing" and for some, when they are no longer having morning sickness!


Babies, any and all ages! As my photography is lifestyle, this means baby will be sleeping soundly in their parents arms or snuggled up in blankets.

It depends what you would like the focus to be.....

In the early weeks it's all about the newness and tiny details but as they grow it's smiles and their interaction with you. A baby is considered a newborn up to 6 weeks.

Otherwise, I say when you feel healed after birth and will enjoy your session, that's when.


So you just tell me a tentative date at booking and then as we get closer we lock it in!.



How do I pay for my session?


You will receive an invoice for your session and payment can be made by direct deposit.

How long will it take until I can view my gallery?



Please allow up to maximum 4 weeks.

Once editing is complete I will email you a link to your own gallery where you can

view and select your favourite images.
