50deposit is required to book the shoot, and full balance is due the day prior to the shoot.

The best light for any shoot is during sunset and sunrise. I will compile a timeline specifically for your shoot with exact suitable times. The only exception to this rule is; for newborn/lifestyle shoots that are indoors.

The location of each shoot depends on what type of shoot it is. I try and source the perfect location for each type of shoot.

I encourage my clients to bring along any props that suit the theme of their shoot. If you have children, bring along items that can keep their attention: Bubbles, streamers, or confetti.

Please try and make use of a colour palette for your shoot. This doesn’t mean jeans and white shirts. Wear clothes that you feel comfortable in. Pastels look great on the beach, and navy is always elegant.

No, unfortunately I don’t give clients my raw files.

Yes, for weddings most definitely. I make sure my second shooter covers every angle I can’t get to.

No, travel and accommodation costs are worked out separately for each wedding and are not part of the packages. Weddings further than 100km from Mackay, Queensland, require accommodation for both photographers. Postage is also quoted separately.

This depends on the size of your belly and if you are uncomfortable. I suggest between 30-35 weeks, however some woman are far too uncomfortable and like to do their shoot earlier. If you are showing heavily, the shoot can also be done even 28 weeks. It is entirely up to you as a client.
