FAQs

Do you have a studio? Where should we take our pictures?

I shoot on location, and it can be in any locations in Auckland. Travel fee is free for any location within the 20km radius from Botany  Town. 

As much as possible try to choose a location that has meanings for your family. Maybe at the comfort of your own home, a park where you normally take your kids to, a favourite dessert place, etc. as it will add more essence to your photographs.

What happens if the weather doesn’t cooperate? Or if my kids get sick?

We can definitely reschedule. I am a mother of two myself, I know that life can get crazy and sickness might creep up on you. Please try to contact me 24 hours in advance in the event that you need to reschedule.

Is there a perfect time of day for my photos?

Yes, there is! Photographers call it the magic hour, which is 1-2 hours before the sun sets. However, don’t worry if that doesn’t work for your family. For under 3s especially, the perfect time of day would be when they are well fed and happy. We can always find an open shade on location if you’d like to have your session during the day.  

For newborn sessions, mornings are usually best.

Will I be able to purchase digital files from my session?

Yes! I would love for you to be able to pass them on to your children. You can also print them as many times as you want, or even making products like Christmas cards, albums, mugs, etc. with your precious family photos.

What should we wear?

The first rule is to wear something comfortable. Then kick it up just a tiny notch! Instead of wearing the same thing, colour-coordinate is the best way to go.

What happens after the session?

Images will be available approximately 2-3 weeks after your session and will be presented to you in a private online gallery that you can share with friends and family.

The gallery is live for FOUR days and you will be contacted before they are made live so that you may select four consecutive days that work well for your schedule. During these four days, you can make your portrait selection and place your order.
