  4. POLICIES

    For all portrait sessions to run smoothly and to get the best out of our time together, please be sure to read right through, and please feel free to call or write if needed.

    For all portrait sessions to run smoothly and to get the best out of our time together, please be sure to read right through, and please feel free to call or write if needed.

    All session fees include a Design and Order Consultation, where you are invited to come into the studio and see all of the products and wall art that is available to you.

    Your Design and Order Consultation will also help me to get a better idea of what you are after so I can be sure to take the portraits you require during your portrait session. For clients out of area, phone or Skype Order and Design Consultations are available.

    Approximately 2-3 weeks after your portrait session your portfolio will be ready for you. Your portfolio will include between 30 to 40 photographs.

    Your portfolio will be presented in a secure online gallery which will be available for 48 hours and your order is due within this time. The Studio will contact you to, to notify your portfolio is ready and will ask when you wish to have your online portfolio time begin. Your portfolio will automatically expire after 48 hours and to have your portfolio made available to you again will incur a $30 fee.

    If a pregnancy and newborn session bundle has been booked, both portfolios will be shown at the same time so you can order across both portfolios.

    Siblings are more than welcome at the studio during newborn sessions, though I understand 2-3 hours can be a long time to expect little ones to be relatively still and quiet in a small space. When siblings are involved in a newborn session I usually start with family and sibling portraits for the first 30 minutes, then older children can head out to the local park or cafe. The main street of Camden is only 12 minutes from the studio. I will then focus on portraits of your newborn on his or her own for the remainder of the session.

    For newborn sessions, I will book you in for your due date, only accepting 10 newborns each month means I can be sure I am there for each client as they need me.

    The best time to document the curled up, sleepy stage is between days 5 to 12. During this window, newborns are sleeping quite a lot and are unaware I am moving them while photographing them. Newborn sessions after day 12 – 14 can take longer as newborns become more awake and alert and getting them to a restful sleep can take more time.

    As you can understand a newborns arrival is unpredictable. Once your baby is born, it is important that you contact the studio within the first 48 hours to finalise your session date and time. Please be aware if I receive notification at 10 days of age for example, I cannot guarantee I will be able to photograph your baby before day 12 at such short notice.

    I am unavailable on Sundays, and also Public Holidays.

    There is a required $500 minimum spend on every photo session booked.

    For outdoor sessions, in the event of rain, storms or unpredictable weather, we will need to postpone to the next available date.
