When should I book a maternity photoshoot?

I recommend maternity photoshoots are booked with me sooner rather than later to ensure your preferred date can be secured.

The optimal time for maternity photoshoots is approximately 30-34 weeks of pregnancy. This ensures you are able to move more easily than later pregnancy yet your bump is still prominent.

When should I book a newborn photoshoot?

I recommend newborn photoshoots are booked with me sooner rather than later to ensure your preferred date can be secured.

Sessions are held within the first two weeks of birth. Select a date approximately 10 days after your due date and we can move this a little as needed depending on your baby's arrival.

What time will our photoshoot be held?

Sessions in The Studio and your home are held in the morning. Outdoor sessions are held at Golden Hour, the hour before sunset.

Where will we go?

Sessions are held either in outdoors in nature at Golden Hour, your home, or The Studio.

I have selected my favourite outdoor locations in the Geelong and Surf Coast area to provide the most beautiful backdrop for your Golden Hour sunset images. Ranging from countryside, to beach and bush settings, I have located some hidden gems to ensure you can be relaxed and enjoy our session together. I also have some favourite locations in Melbourne and surrounds.

The Studio is a light-filled styled space in the heart of Geelong that provides an alternative to either an in-home or outdoor photoshoot. The Studio offers protection from the weather and a beautifully simple backdrop for your photos. Sessions are held in the mornings during the week and The Studio Mini sessions are held once per month on a weekend.

All sessions except This Is Us can be held at The Studio, including Newborn, Maternity, Families and Couples sessions. Unfortunately extended families and pets cannot be accommodated.

Travel fees apply to locations outside of the Geelong / Surf Coast area. I’ll provide you with exclusive access to my Location Guide once your session is confirmed.

What do we wear?

I have prepared a Styling advice guide to support your outfit selection.

Clients also have access to my Client Wardrobe filled with beautifully curated dresses, sets and robes of various sizes designed to make clients feel comfortable and beautiful throughout their session. I also have a selection of newborn clothing, blankets, wraps and props including a vintage cane bassinet which I bring to each newborn session for clients to view and select from.

Upon confirmation of your booking, I will provide you with exclusive access to view the guide and wardrobe options. Borrowing from the Client Wardrobe is included in your session package at no additional cost.

I have also partnered with dress hire companies Mama Rentals and Everything Lace Hire to provide a 15% discount on an extended range of designer outfits to hire for your photoshoot.

Let's do this! Just hit the 'BOOK A SESSION' button and fill out the contact form. I'll be back in touch to connect you to my booking site where you can select your preferred session from my available dates. A session fee is requested at this time to reserve your date.

What do your packages include?

My packages include access to view all digital photos from our session artistically edited in my signature style, access to my client wardrobe, props, styling advice and favourite photoshoot locations, and a friend for life in me.

Start your journey with a session fee (deposit), then select an image package - the manner in which you choose to receive your photos including digital and prints - to complete your total package.

What is a Session Fee?

The Session Fee includes the time and talent to capture and process your images in my signature style, as well as travel with the Geelong and Surf Coast, access to my Client Wardrobe and styling support, and other inclusions dedicated to making your experience beautiful.

The Session Fee also serves as a non-refundable deposit to secure your booking.

What is an Image Package?

A collection of digital images, prints and print credit. Select your preference from a range to determine how you will receive your photos.

Do you hold Mini Sessions?

Yes! I hold Mini Sessions to allow you to update your photos in a short and sweet session.

Mini sessions are held at Golden Hour in nature weekly, and updated with new dates regularly. These sessions are held prior to a standard Golden Hour session at the location selected by this client.

Studio Mini Sessions are held once per month depending on demand. Get on the waitlist to be notified of the next session.

Should I choose a Mini Session or a standard photoshoot?

Mini Sessions are designed to capture this moment in time in a short and sweet session. Standard sessions are designed for us to all take our time and enjoy the moment without haste. They allow us to capture a whole lot more detail and just... breathe.

When is the next The Studio Mini session?

The Studio Mini sessions are held once per month on a weekend day morning. Please get in touch for the next date.

I've never had a photoshoot before...

This is a sentence I hear from a lot of my clients! The best thing about my style of photography is its relaxed nature. I am not seeking to pose you in awkward, unfamiliar positions. My activity-based approach will see you entranced in the moment, playfully exploring, relaxing and enjoying yourselves so much so you will forget my camera is present. I will gently guide you so you're never left wondering what to do with yourself, but I'll be searching for those moments when you are your truest self.

What if my kids don't play the game?

My style of photography is wonderful for capturing the perfectly imperfect moments of life which makes it ideal for children. Time with loved ones is the greatest gift to most children so our session filled with play and exploration and adventure and love generally sees children really embracing the session. Having three children of my own sees me armed with a pocket full of tricks to get us the shot and if all else fails, I have a back-up magic trick bribe children adore!

Can my pet be included in our session?

Pets are welcome, but unfortunately can't be accommodated in The Studio. Please let me know at the time of booking for outdoor sessions so I can recommend appropriate locations.

Can I order prints and frames from you?

Yes! Your online gallery is connected to your personalised print store where you can view your images in situ - as a print, in a frame etc.

Do you offer gift vouchers?

The most special of gifts, I offer gift vouchers in both hard copy and electronic format for any amount you choose. Get in touch to secure the perfect gift for your someone special.

Do you do extended family sessions?

Yes! I love a large family session. Unfortunately these cannot be accommodated at The Studio, but are beautifully captured either in your home as your natural selves, or outdoors amongst nature where you can run free together. Please get in touch for an accurate price.

Do you do personal branding photoshoots?

Yes! I hold either personal branding sessions in The Studio or at your place of business. Please get in touch to chat.

What is the difference between a Family and This Is Us session?

A standard Family session is held at one of my favourite locations and I offer styling advice and access to my designer client wardrobe. I provide gentle guidance and prompts throughout the session to encourage connection between you as we play, move and laugh.

This Is Us is my a day-in-the-life style session which is designed to capture your everyday rituals, your true selves, those small moments you never want to forget in your home or favourite location. In this documentary-style session, I don't provide direction, rather follow you in your everyday journey and activities to capture your story. Add on an 'Our Story' written story of you to this package to feature the whole story of you in words and images in a beautiful keepsake album.

What is the 'Our Story' add on?

'Our Story' is the written story of your family featured alongside your favourite session photographs in a beautiful album.

I am a writer by trade and with heart and this package paints the whole picture for me, and you. Through a chat over a cup of tea, I will delve into what makes your family you, your history and discover your personal story.

Your written story is featured in a linen album to complement your images from our session together.

Do you have a question?

Vix ut utinam feugait. Eu scribentur liberavisse nec. Dico fugit nostro cu pri, no putent nemore mel, ius at minim molestiae

Are you vaccinated?

Yes. I am up to date at all times with all relevant vaccines to ensure the safety of your family. I will also reschedule our session if my health demands to protect yours.
