FAQs for family photos
Here are some answers to the most frequently asked questions for my family photography package.
Where will our family shoot take place?
Family photos can be done anywhere really. If you already have somewhere in mind, great! If not, I have plenty of beautiful locations where I shoot at. We can chat about what sort of setting you want for your photos and come up with a location together, which will suit your family and where your kids will have fun.
Or, you may even prefer to have them done right in your own home. There’s a tonne of benefits to this, especially if your kids are pretty shy, they’re bound to feel more comfortable at home. A lot of people worry that their home isn’t beautiful enough but don’t worry, we’ll have a talk about which areas I usually photograph in and I gaurantee we’ll make it work.
How long does a family session last for?
Family sessions usually last for 1-1,5 hours but don’t worry, I don’t run off at this exact time. This can really depend on how many children you have and how old they are. Some sessions last for longer as it may take longer for your kids to warm up to me and that’s completely ok.
What should we wear?
Keep it simple and make sure you’re comfortable. It’s usually a good idea to avoid logos or busy patterns. No need to wear the matching jeans and white t-shirts but minor colour co-ordinating between your family will compliment your photos. Perhaps you chose a colour or a pallete to all co-ordinate with.
I’m more than happy for you to send me your ideas or even photos of what you plan on wearing and letting you know what I think will work best.
When will we receive our photos?
You will be able to download your images within 3-4 weeks. This is really a maximum time frame and I do try to get them to you sooner. I’ll be sure to post a few sneak-previews before this, just to make the wait a little easier.
What happens if it rains on the day of our shoot?
If it is really pouring with rain, then we will reschedule for a time that is convenient to both of us. We do not need perfect weather to get great photos. Light rain and puddles can also be a lot of fun for kids and make for some fun photos!
What happens if my child is grumpy and uncooperative?
This is a common concern and also something that happens regularly 😀 . Don’t worry, I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve to get the most out of your session with your kids.
How many people can we include in our family photos?
Families come in all different shapes and sizes. The session fee includes 5 people with a $30 charge for each additional person. For much larger groups, it might be better to discuss extending the length of our shoot to allow for enough time to get photos of everybody.
What if I need to cancel my shoot?
Your non-refundable booking fee is non-refundable. However, if for unseen circumstances you cannot make it to your shoot then please let me know ASAP and we can reschedule.
How do I book my session with you?
Just get in touch with me via the contact page and we can schedule a date for your family shoot. To secure your session I will need a signed contract and a non-refundable booking fee/deposit.
