Answers to the questions you want to ask

Individual Portrait / Cosplay / Couples and Friends

I'm a beginner. Do you provide any tuition?

Absolutely. We will work together to ensure that you get the look you want and the poses that convey who you are and what you want to project in the photos. There are a variety of poses and techniques to practise and get comfortable with and whether you start practising before the shoot or on the day I will guide you through various styles until we are both happy we have got the look that is right for you. 

What is the consultation all about?

To plan the perfect portrait portfolio for you, we work together on the shoot so I get to know you and what your expectations are. We will discuss what kind of style you are interested in, talk about your personal style, what experience you have had, what kind of clothes you usually wear, what look you want to convey, who the audience is for the photos etc. I will put together a mood board containing reference photos you like based on the feedback you give me. From the mood board we can plan your shoot, location, outfits etc. to create a stunning portfolio for you.

What happens at the shoot?

When you arrive, we will discuss all of the outfits you have brought with you. We then plan the order of outfits for the shoot and timing for each. If you are accompanied by a make up artist or friend we will also discuss the role they will play. We will discuss poses as we go and explore tips and tricks to help create your beautiful photos. We will also discuss anything that we believe may enhance the session as we go, trying new things and challenge each other to get the best results. Most of all we will have fun.

How do you select the photos for me?

As we progress through the shoot I like to provide you with the opportunity of reviewing the photos, just to see we are on track. I also get immediate feedback on how you feel about what we are taking. Once the session is over I take the photos back to the studio and I produce a proof sheet of the photos for your review and selection or I can take the guess work out of the process and choose the best and most suitable photos for editing based on my experience. 

How do I book a session?

DM me on my insta page, fill out a booking enquiry on the Make a Booking tab, or send me an email from the contact page with any questions you may have. Or give call / text on 0419 136 048 and let's discuss what you are after and agree a suitable date and time. I look forward to hearing from you and working with you to capture a unique collection of eye catching photographs that show off your individual style, look and diversity.

What's included in the price?

All packages include consultation prior to the shoot, travel time within the Sydney Metro area, the photography session and professionally edited photos displayed in a private online  gallery and available for unlimited download via a secure link from my website. Any edits required in the future are also available as part of my ongoing service and commitment to you. 

How many photos will I get?

That will depend on the package you book for and a minimum number will be agreed upfront. If its an open shoot then you can expect around 100 photos that show off most poses captured during the shoot. 

Do I pay a deposit?

I do not require a deposit. and give you a number of payment options at the shoot including a pay later option.

What if I have to cancel?

I understand things happen (for me as well) and working outside we are at the mercy of the weather. In good faith we will schedule another suitable date and time.


Family Photography / Groups


Where will the family photography session take place?

The family sessions are shot at any time during the day to suit your schedule. I understand how busy family life can be so I will fit in with you, but early morning or afternoon light will produce the best outdoor results. You may have a favourite location nearby to where you live or I can suggest a location within Sydney that suits. There are lots of great locations to choose from around the Sydney area or, if you prefer your own backyard, I can come to you


What do we wear?

You can wear whatever you want. Smart casual always looks great, and you will feel comfortable and relaxed although you can choose a special outfit or theme if you prefer. It’s also nice if everyone wears complimentary colours. Try to avoid big logos or patterns that clash as they will be a distraction. I can discuss this with you as part of the initial consultation.


How many people can be in a session?

The price is based on a family of 5. For larger groups the shoot time may have to be extended or the number of individual photos adjusted. Larger groups can of course be accomodated but we may have to discuss the finer details to make sure you get what you need.


Can we bring our pets?

Of course, the more the merrier - but remember it may be a bit more challenging!


How long will our session be?

The package allows up to 60 minutes but this can be changed based on your circumstances. Depending on the extent of the change there may be price alteration but generally there will be some flexibility.


How many photos will we get?

There will be around 50 professionally edited colour photos but this will vary depending on how the shoot goes and whether there are any specific requirements for certain family members. I will also include select or the entire portfolio as black and whites for no additional charge.  


What's included in the price?

Included in the price is the initial consultation, travel within the Sydney metro area, 60 min photography session, professional editing and online gallery. All the photos are yours to download, print, share and use however you wish. Additional services such as wall prints, acrylic blocks, canvas prints and photo books can be arranged for an additional cost.
