What are the location options?

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 $25 per hour when travelling 50 km or more from Donnybrook, W.A

I would love a session at my home but it's nothing like you see on instagram?

Perfect! I want to see a home that's lived in with all it's character that will make your images personal to you.

A home with drawings up on the fridge, knick knacks with sentimental value, the family dog following you around like a shadow all these little things will tell your story - adds to your a image time capsule.

If you're worried, just a simple clearing of any clutter and papers will do.

What if my children misbehave?

Hey, as a mother of two myself, I can relate. I won't be silently judging you.

If they need a break we can do that, they want to run around we can introduce games,
or if baby needs a feed, there's a perfect tender moment to capture.
Sometimes a child just wants to be in your arms and snuggle then that will make for some awesome photos too!
Just be reassured that I will not rush through the session.

It's okay, just smile and we will get through it together.

Can my images not be shared on social media?

Absolutely! I am not only okay with keeping your images private but it is actually your legal right to refuse.

Just let me know during booking.

Can I extend the session ?

Sessions are for 1 hour but if you would like more time added to your session that is
no problems at all, just ask me at booking.

Price for additional hours :

How many people can be in a session?

All sessions include up to 6 people and pets.

$35.00 per extra person.
For extended family sessions please ask me.

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

Please allow up to 4 weeks.
A sneak peek will be shown on social media so keep an eye out.
Once editing is complete I will email you a link to your own pixieset gallery where you can
view and select your favorite images.

How do I pay for my session?

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

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes, I am happy to offer a payment plan.

Please ask me about arranging a plan to suit your budget.

what if we are sick?

Sometimes, due to unforeseen circumstances, illness or weather we will need to reschedule our session.

If our booking is at your home or indoor and it's raining we can go ahead as planned.

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.
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!.
