FAQ

 

 

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A PHOTOGRAPHER?

I’ve been a Professional Newborn Photographer in Cape Town for many years. I completed my studies 7 years ago and I’ve had the absolute privilege to be doing this since then and love every bit of it. I have received many hours of training with some of the world’s leading international photographers, and I am always learning valuable skill and editing techniques.  There is nothing in this world I would rather be doing than to capture beautiful memories for my clients! 

DO YOU ONLY USE NATURAL LIGHT?

I am a huge fan of natural light yes. It is soft and flattering, it is the absolute best light there is. Cape Town spoils us with amazing skies and the most beautiful sunsets. I only use natural light especially during Newborn Shoots, this ensures that there are no flashing lights distracting them and keeping the environment serene for them. 

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME FOR A NEWBORN SHOOT?

Newborn Shoots are done from as young as 4 days old to 10 days old. The sooner the better! When babies are older than 10 days they start stretching out and is not too fond of being wrapped or cuddled into baskets and props. They are learning their ability of stretching. The skin also starts peeling from day 12 so should you wish to do a Newborn Shoot with the squishy sleepy poses as seen on my website, be sure to book in advance to ensure my availability right after your due date. 

HOW FAR IN AVANCE SHOULD I BOOK MY SESSION?

Whether you would like to book a Maternity Shoot, Newborn Shoot or Family Shoot, it is important to do it as soon as possible. I take bookings sometimes as long as 8 months in advance to ensure availability.  I only take a limited amount of bookings per month to ensure that my clients receive the best service and my undivided attention when I create their beautiful images. 

WHEN DO I RECEIVE ALL THE IMAGES?

A lot of love goes into each image I create. After your session your will have a sneak peek on Facebook within 1 week from your session date. After 3 to 4 weeks you will receive your images either online or on a beautiful USB dependent on the package you have selected.  You will receive only the final and edited images, no RAW images will be released.

HOW DO I BOOK?

When you have decided to go ahead and book your session, please contact me and we will look at available dates and venues and start planning your session.  

DO YOU OFFER ANY PRINTED PRODUCTS?

Yes, I do offer a lot of products, from framed images, canvasses, to memory boxes and more! Please enquire for more details about this.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN STUDIO AND LIFESTYLE SESSIONS?

I offer both type of sessions. Studio Sessions are done in my home-studio in Brackenfell. These sessions are done on weekdays only and is perfect for an intimate session, max 4 people. Lifestyle Sessions are done either in your home or at a beautiful location. It is more relaxed and unposed.
