Our photo sessions are relaxed, casual and natural, as we feel the best images are taken when you are less aware of the camera. We will not pose you but instead will help with  direction to make sure you aren’t feeling stiff or awkward in front of the camera.

With our family sessions, we ask you think of them as family time. Bring the dog, balls, scooters, whatever you like to do as a family to hang out together. We’ll take care of the rest.

Absolutely! We encourage anyone who is an important part of your family to be involved! It’s a celebration of this time in your lives!

A session with a newborn will generally last between 1-2 hours. The session is never rushed and allows time for feeding and settling your baby as well as cuddles along the way.

Pet, Family or Maternity session are about one hour. 

The short answer is, whatever you feel the most comfortable and what reflects your own style.  But don’t worry, this is all part of the planning process. During your pre-session consultation we will discuss your outfit options to ensure you and your family are going to look and feel great!

Family & pet sessions are welcome at any time and it’s best to book early if you have a specific date in mind. School holidays are booked out early, as are the late afternoon weekday sessions.  We’d recommend getting in touch as early as possible.

If you are booking a newborn session, it is best to contact us around the start of your second trimester, but  it’s never too early. I will pencil in your due date, then once your baby has arrived we can finalise a time and date for your session. Newborn sessions are usually during the first two weeks when they’re at their sleepiest.

Maternity sessions are best around the 28 – 34 week mark, but can be done at any stage.Please bear in mind the time of year as we all know how hot and uncomfortable north Queensland summers are. We offer popular sunrise sessions during summer which are STUNNING for beach sessions.
