Session Info

Each session is unique just like the people I photograph. Your session will reflect your inimitable personality and character. My detailed questionnaire and a pre-session consultation ensures that we find the perfect spot to capture your memories. Your session can be held in the comfort of your home, or at your favourite location; be it the beach or a favourite park. For boudoir and intimate portrait sessions, your home or a more private outside setting would both make a beautiful backdrop. Talk to me about the vision your have for your session and we will work together to bring your ideas to life!




$300 retainer is required at the time of booking to secure your session.

The balance is due at the time of session.

A variety of print products is available in your gallery when you view session images.

Prices are subject to change without notice.

I am ready to book. What happens next?

Please submit a booking contact form to let me know your preferred session type and date. You will be prompted to fill in a detailed questionnaire so that I can learn a little bit about you/your family and your expectations for the session. I use that information to further customise your photography experience. You will receive session fee payment information to secure your session date and a contract to be signed electronically on my website. Once the session fee is paid and the contract is signed, your session date and time are scheduled and you will receive a booking confirmation.

My child is not feeling well and I would like to reschedule my session date/time that’s already been confirmed.

Totally not an issue. I pride myself on my flexibility. I want to make sure each and every family member is well and happy so, if you need to reschedule last minute due to health concerns, don’t hesitate to let me know. I am usually able to reschedule your session, subject to dates availability.

Our session is scheduled for outside but the weather isn’t cooperating. What do we do?

I usually touch base with you a few days prior to your session and check weather forecast rigorously. Should the weather not be suitable for an outdoor session, we will reschedule for the next available date. Should you prefer to move your session inside, we can do that as well. 

Where do boudoir sessions take place and how should I prepare?

Your boudoir photography session can be organized at variety of locations, like your own home, a hotel room, or even the beach. Depending on location, all preparation constitutes making sure that the place is tidy, the bed sheets are clean and that nobody who could possibly distract you is present. Hotel room is always organised separately. And the beach session… well, bring yourself to the session 🙂

Our session is in our home. How should we prepare?

Firstly, don’t stress! I like to document your REAL life as it is. Some clutter may need to be hidden but that’s something we can also do as soon as I arrive for your session. We will shoot in the rooms with the most natural light so concentrate on those parts of your house.

Is hair and make up included in the session fee?

No, you need to organise it separately. 

I am really not good at posing and feel uncomfortable in front of the camera. 

I know exactly how you feel. Rest assured, you will forget about the camera. Your job is simply to enjoy your loved ones’ company, have fun and follow the gentle guidance I will provide. Leave the rest to me. You won’t be disappointed!

I am shy and worries about my body shape and that I won’t look good in the photos.

We all come in different shapes and sizes and everyone has some insecurities! But everyone is beautiful! I will highlight your favourite features while capturing your unique beauty! My sessions are all about making you comfortable, having fun, gaining confidence to be in your own skin and forgetting about your insecurities. Getting hair and makeup treatment is a definite confidence and excitement booster!

What should we wear for our family or couples session?

First and foremost, make sure you wear something COMFORTABLE. There are various options depending on the type and style of session you’d like but, generally, neutral, casual and simple works well. Rich, bold colours will add a nice pop to your photos. Layers and textures are always a plus. I’d recommend colour coordinating your colours but stay away from matchy matchy. Avoid large logos and distracting large prints. Most importantly, stay true to yourself: if you never ever wear heels, don’t pressure yourself to wear a pair to your session. I want to document YOU! Still not sure what to wear? Check out my Pinterest Board or email me your outfit choices and we will figure it out together.

I am not sure what to wear for my boudoir session. Can you help me?

Yes, of course. First and foremost, make sure you wear something that you feel COMFORTABLE in. There are various options depending on the type and style of session you’d like but general suggestion is to pick outfits that highlight your favourite features.

Most importantly, stay true to yourself: if you never ever wear heels, don’t pressure yourself to wear a pair to your session. I want to document YOU!

Still not sure what to wear? Check out my Pinterest Board for some inspiration or email me your outfit choices and we will figure it out together.

What about the actual session? What happens then?

I move through each session in a very relaxed manner. The first 15-20 minutes are usually spent chatting (and taking a tour of your house, if we shoot indoors). I will ask your child(ren) to show me their room and tell me a bit more about their favourite things. If it is a newborn session, it will revolve around your baby and their needs, leaving the time for feeding and changing breaks. If there are siblings of toddler age, I follow their lead, watching out for baby’s needs and cues. It’s a delicate balance, but it works and the most important thing is to relax and enjoy the process. For boudoir sessions, we will spend the first 15-20 minutes looking through your outfit choices and getting to know each other a little better in person. Then we proceed with the session and  the most important thing is to relax and enjoy the experience.

How long will it be before I can view my photos?

Your digital gallery is delivered to you for viewing within 2 weeks of the session. Shortly thereafter, your custom USB is posted to you. Any products included with your package may take a little longer, subject to product delivery times.

Are ladies in your boudoir gallery professional models?

No, they are not professional models. Women in my photographs are regular people, just like you and me. I take the time to learn enough about you to ensure I can capture you for who you are in the most natural way possible.

Do you offer payment plans?

I do offer custom payment plans where the total of your session fee + package fee is divided into several instalments. Once the first instalment is paid we can shoot your session; and, your gallery will be released after all payments are received.
