F.A.Q + T&Cs

Central Coast Baby Photography

Do you come to us or do we come to you?

Most sessions are done in my studio (which has all the comforts of home), unless we are adventuring in a field or beach for a Family or Maternity Session. When booking your Central Coast Baby Photography Session its important to determine which style of photography you would like.

When is the best time to book?

Most Sessions are booked 6-8 weeks in advance, this doesn’t mean I wont take last minute bookings though and will always do my best to accommodate but specific dates need to be booked in advance.
Maternity sessions are scheduled for when your approximately 32-36weeks so best to book at 20 weeks along with your Newborn Session.

How do we book our Newborn Session if we Arent sure when baby will arrive?

Newborn Sessions are booked based on estimated due dates. I only take 12 due dates a month so I can ensure to have time in my diary for when baby makes their arrival. Once baby arrives that’s when we lock your date in. You need to have your due date secured by purchasing your Booking Voucher from approximately 20 weeks to ensure availability.

how do we book?

To book your Central Coast Baby Photography experience I encourage you to fill out my contact form so I can ensure I have an available date to suit you. Next step is to purchase your booking voucher and your booked in – Its that easy!

when will we see our photos?

Your booking voucher includes your viewing and selection appointment which is held directly after your session. We can go through images, focus on what you would like to do with them and place your order.

do we order products through you?

Yes! I’m so obsessed with our products and have even included some complimentary in my pre-made collections. I suggest taking some photos of your wall space before your sessions and you can show me in your ordering appointment and we can create collections for your walls you will love.

can we order digital files?

Absolutely – we live in a digital world and I absolutely understand the want for digital files.

what do we wear?

I have and extensive collection of Dresses for girls size 1-10 and Gowns for Mums that are available to use with your Booking Voucher. I encourage Dads + boys to wear long Chinos and bring along a long sleeve white button-up + long sleeve dark toned button up.
