You decided you want to book your photo sessions with me and now the planning starts. What do you need to do next? Do you need to prepare for your session? Do you need to buy anything?
There are so many questions you might have, so I will try and get everything in this little booking guide to help you with your dream photoshoot.
Get your Quote
The first step is to get in contact with me to get a quote. Please make sure to include all the important information in your first email to speed things up.
My basic Session Fee for a 60 Minute Photoshoot is $150. Digital or Print Packages can be purchased after the photoshoot. Here is my Price guide.
Invoice & Contract
My Contract and an Invoice will be sent to your Email Address. Payment can be made by using your credit card, PayPal or bank transfer. The contract can be signed online, even on your phone. After the contract is signed and the Invoice paid, you are booked in for your session. You can have a look at my Terms and Conditions here for more information.
Before your Session
After your booking, I will send you a little questionnaire to give me more information about your family, and anything special to include in your session. You will also receive my Styling Guide for Lifestyle Sessions. Every session is special and I want to make sure it is tailored to you.
Before your Session (usually 1 day before) I will send out a reminder email for your session. It will include all the information about our shoot and a small location guide with the exact location to meet, parking and other information.
Enjoy Your Photo Session
I will try my best to make your session a great experience. During the photoshoot, we will try to have as much fun as possible. My style is very easy going and moving orientated. Most of my sessions are lifestyle sessions. I will ask you to move around rather than get you to do model poses. If you like to learn more about lifestyle sessions, have a look here.
After your Session
To make the waiting time for your photos a little faster, you will receive a sneak peek of your session. The rest of your images will be ready for viewing within 2 weeks. All the images will be fully edited and uploaded into an online Gallery. Your gallery will be open for 2 weeks and you will be able to view your photos wherever and whenever you like.
If you haven’t paid for any photos, your photos will be watermarked and you will be able to choose the images you like to purchase.
As soon as you paid for your photos, you will be able to download your photos, share them with friends and family or order prints.
Questions before booking your Session
In the following section, I will try to answer a couple of the most asked questions before photos sessions. I hope it will answer some of your questions.
Best time for Photos?
Townsville and the Burdekin is a very sunny and bright place to live. For Photo Session I prefer the time just before sunset or just after sunrise. The so-called golden hour provides great light for beautiful photos. Depending on the location, photos during the day can be possible as well.
Best Place for Photos?
There are many great locations in Townsville and the Burdekin for photos. I am happy to give suggestions for your session. I am also available to travel further for sessions if needed. If you are not sure where you like to book, just let me know the theme you have in mind. A beach session, maybe a green and tropical background or an open grass paddock.
What to wear?
After booking, I will send you a small styling guide to make sure you feel comfortable with your clothing choice. I am also available for styling tips. Don’t hesitate to send me photos before the session.
Do I need to bring anything?
I always bring a range of props with me to every photoshoot. Depending on the situation, I am offering some playful or creative props to make your photo experience better. For family photos, I always bring a blanket to let you sit down. You don’t need to bring anything to the session. If you like to have certain items in the photos though, please bring them along. Does your kid have a favourite teddy bear? Do they like to have football-themed photos? Let us talk about your ideas before the session.
