The process:

The timeline from your enquiry to your final gallery

 

 

 

BEFORE YOUR SESSION:

 

one

Reserve a space in my calendar & pay your booking fee


You'll find a link to my calendar at the bottom of this page which you can use to view my availability and reserve yourself a date. Once you've reserved a date or responded to my email, I'll send through your quote/invoice so you can arrange the payment of your booking fee to make it all official.

two

START PREPARING FOR YOUR SESSION


Once your booking fee has been paid and contract signed, you'll be officially booked in. Yay! I'll then send you a comprehensive preparation guide & questionnaire to help you prepare and start bringing your vision to life.

Three

PAY THE REMAINING BALANCE OF YOUR PACKAGE & HAVE YOUR PHOTOSHOOT EXPERIENCE


You'll need to pay for your chosen package by the day of your session.

Then the magic happens!


after YOUR SESSION:

 

one

REVIEW YOUR IMAGES & CHOOSE YOUR FAVOURITES


1-2 weeks after our time together, you'll receive a lightly edited gallery of roughly 40-80 images to choose your favourites from. You'll have 7 days to make your selections and upgrade if you'd like to do so.

(You'll still have the option to upgrade as long as your gallery remains open (12 months) however all upgrades after the 7 days will incur an additional admin fee)

two

FINAL PROCESSING


After the 7 days, I will take another 1-2 weeks to go away and perfect the images you love, taking on any feedback you may have (e.g. removing specific blemishes) and giving them the final touches they need to hang beautifully on your walls forever.

 

three

RECEIVE YOUR FINAL GALLERY


After 4-5 weeks, your final gallery will be available to download in web size & high resolution and will remain open for 12 months for you to download as many times as you need.

PRicing & Packages:


A non refundable booking fee of $199 is required to be paid to reserve your space in my calendar and is deducted from the package price.

The remaining balance is then due by the date of your scheduled session/estimated due date.

Payments can be made via bank transfer or credit card.


PRICES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE AND ARE NOT GUARANTEED UNTIL YOUR BOOKING FEE HAS BEEN PAID

Location Guide

Incase you're needing a bit of inspiration, I have a list of locations that I've curated just for you. These are locations that I have personally visited, tested and learnt how the lighting works. Knowing the location helps me think less about the lighting and environment and allows me to focus more on capturing your family.

Prints, FRAMES & ALBUMS


Your best memories don't deserve to stay hidden away in your phone or on your hard drives. This is why I've put together a print service that allows you to purchase prints right from your online viewing gallery.


All my printing is done through professional print labs in New Zealand & Australia who pride themselves on high quality products. So if quality is important to you, you can rest assured that their products and processes are designed to last generations, their colours will be accurate and it will all be delivered straight to your door or you can pick up locally from my studio.


Prints begin at $4.00

Frames begin at $186.00

Albums begin at $1299.00


For a full price list you can view an example gallery and go to the print store section.

Breastfeeding images


A motherhood session (& even sometimes a family session) can be a perfect way to capture your breast feeding journey. Whether it be that you're almost coming to the end or even if you plan on continuing on!


As long as you are comfortable, I will happily capture this for you and you will receive any breastfeeding images for free on top of your package selections.

FAQ

WHAT LEVEL OF RETOUCHING DO you do?

Your proof/viewing gallery will contain edited images which have just had colour adjustments to reflect my artistic style. All purchased images in your final gallery will include lightly retouched images where I have taken extra time and care to check over each image. This process includes removing distractions and things that wouldn't normally be there - for example: people from the background at the beach, newborn pimples, toddler snot and scratches on peoples hands. Occasionally I may also be able to do a face or head swap. My retouching DOES NOT include extensive retouching where large parts of the image or
people are altered - feel free to ask anyway if you are unsure and I will be able to let you know whether or not it is included in my services.

WHAT IF IT'S RAINING ON THE DATE OF MY SESSION?

I reserve spaces in my calendar specifically as back up dates for all outdoor bookings. So we will always have room to move things around should the weather not work for us in the end. Please note however, that your package balance will still be due
on the original agreed date.

WHAT HAPPENS TO MY IMAGES I DIDN'T SELECT?

I understand that sometimes our financial situations can change, so if you wanted to, but aren't in a position to purchase all your images at the time of your session, you can relax knowing that your selection gallery will still remain open for 12 months. Please note however that any gallery upgrades after the 7 day allocation will incur an additional $99 admin fee and may have an extended processing time.

DO YOU DO PAYMENT PLANS?

I require your booking fee to be paid in full to book and your package to be paid in full by the date of your session.
You are welcome however, to pay for your package in advance with weekly/fortnightly instalments that suit your budget via an AP if this is easier for you, and I also accept Laybuy. Laybuy is a great option to give you an additional 6 weeks past your session to pay off any remaining balances or additional upgrades.

DO YOU DO EXTENDED FAMILY SESSIONS?

No, but I have plenty of recommendations for great photographers who do that I can send
through to you!

WHAT IF I ONLY WANT AN UPDATED PICTURE OF MY BABY, NOT A MOTHERHOOD SESSION?

I want to encourage all mother's to get behind the camera for a change. I would never force anything upon anyone, so if you only want pictures of your baby then that's fine. However the rates will always remain the same, so you may as well jump in there mama!

What clients have said

Frances Dowsett

“We have been lucky enough to have Cat capture some family photos for us when both of our girls turned one and honestly I can’t recommend her enough! She is so friendly
and approachable, and gives great direction without making the photos feel forced at all. She is amazing with kids and seems to just know how to get the best out of a photo session no matter what mood they are in. Highly recommend.”
