What is the process for making an enquiry/booking? If you haven’t done so already, please look through the menu above to view some photos of the session you are interested in. Then contact me via email or phone so I can follow up with some more information. Once you are ready to make a booking, let me know and we can arrange a day and time to meet approximately a week or two before your portrait/family session to go over your session details, show samples of the prints that I offer, and give you my guides on prints, and preparing for your photography. When your photos are ready to view, we will meet again, and you can choose any photos you would like printed.
How early do I need to book? Family/Portraits/Events/Pets: To ensure there is time before your session to meet with you and discuss your needs, and to enable you to prepare well for your session, bookings are best made at least three weeks in advance. As soon as you’ve decided you would like to go ahead with your booking, please email me to confirm. The further ahead you book, the more likely I am to be available for your preferred day. Aerial Photography: It’s best to book with at least two weeks lead time.
Do I need to pay anything upfront? Yes. For most types of photography, the session fee is required in full, before your photography takes place. There are some exceptions for commercial photography only.
Who chooses the location for pet and family/portrait photos? You are more than welcome to choose where your photos are taken, especially if you have a favourite place, or somewhere that has special meaning. In our pre-session meeting we will discuss the location, and if necessary, I will have a look and let you know if it’s suitable. Alternatively, some clients have preferred that I choose the location, and occasionally (if they ask me to), I keep it a secret until the day of their session. A beautiful park, riverfront, or garden are the most popular, but a trendy urban setting may be more your style.
Prints I offer arange of wall art and prints that you can have your photos printed onto. These include framed prints, acrylic, wood, canvas, framed canvas, albums, and more. A range of products for your wall, shelf or coffee table are available to see to help you decide which ones are best suited to your desires and decor.
Digital and online use of images I am here to capture images for you. I love sharing photos with other people, and your family and friends will love seeing your photos online too. However, if you prefer that your photos not be shared online, that’s fine, just let me know.
Digital files Whilst most of my private clients prefer to have their photos printed onto high quality archival products, so they can see and enjoy them every day, I also offer digital files of your session for cost that is additional to your session fee. Commercial clients will receive their photos as high resolution and web-sized files.
Cancellation Session fees are non-refundable.
Are payment plans available? Yes, please enquiry at your pre-session meeting or when you make a booking. All session fees must be finalised before your photo session takes place. If you choose to purchase prints, 50% of the total value of your order is due at the time of ordering, and full payment is due before your prints are delivered.
What if the weather is not suitable for photos? The quality and style of my photos is dependent on nice weather. If it’s raining, dark and heavily overcast, very windy, excessively hot/cold, or generally unpredictable, it is usually best to re-schedule your session. It is better to wait for nice conditions and have great weather and light.
How far will you travel for photography sessions? I am based in Berri, South Australia, and I can travel to the main Riverland towns of Loxton, Barmera, Berri, and Renmark at no extra charge. If you’re located outside of these Riverland towns, please contact me for a travel quote.
