FAQ

  • How long will the shoot and photos take?
    I try and keep this shoot quick and simple, usually no more than an 60 minutes. However this depends on the content you are after and the amount of people, outfits and props etc. I will have your selection gallery up within a week, where you choose the photos you want. I then edit them and have the final photos through within 2 weeks of the shoot!
  • Are we able to just buy digital?
    Yes! My branding images are only digital. You will receive a personal gallery of unedited images to select from. I will then edit the final images you want and create a new gallery which you will be able to download in high resolution and use however you want!
  • What do I wear and bring?
    Keep it simple! I say less is more! Think of colors that you use in your branding and try to keep them very simple! If the environment plays a role in the images, you don't want to be wearing contrasting colors. We want to keep it clean and simple! Once again, we will plan this before your shoot!
  • Where is the shoot done?
    Either at your own home/workplace/space or at my natural home studio in Papamoa. The location is quite important in branding images as it plays a role in the overall look and feel of the photos! But we will plan this together to ensure you get what you're looking for!
  • Are the images only in black & white?
    I shoot all my images in colour, and generally for branding, the gallery is full colour. I can generate black and whites of any of the images if required.
  • Do you offer hair and makeup?
    Hair and makeup can be added to any shoot for an additional charge of $120. We will need to plan for this as it takes at least an hour. I can either organise this for you or you can use your favourite makeup artists, or simply do it yourself!
  • Will my images be displayed on social media?
    When it comes to branding photos I feel like the more people who can tag you in their feed the better! These images are going to be used to show the world your business, but like all my shoots, if you do not want your photos featured then that is totally fine! Please just let me know prior to your shoot.
  • Will my images be displayed on social media?
    I love to share my beautiful client's images on my Instagram, but only if you allow it! So please let me know prior to your shoot if you do not want to be filmed (for a reel) or have your photos shared. I completely understand and respect that!
  • Are we able to just buy digital?
    Yes! This gallery is all digital which is why it has allowed me to keep the cost as minimal as possible! However, I do offer custom prints and canvases which can be ordered additionally!
  • What do I wear and bring?
    Keep it simple! I say less is more! Think of denim and white/black or neutral tones! Don't go crazy with patterns or outfits. I want you to be comfortable as you will be on the ground for some! These photos are not about the outfits, they are about you! So don't overcomplicate it! Just think of light and dark sets. For more inspiration on what to wear, check out this Pinterest page I created!
  • Are the images only in black & white?
    Generally yes for this style of shoot! I don't want colours to sidetrack you from the connection and emotion in the images. But of course, I can shoot in colour if required.
  • Where is the shoot done?
    Maternity: Either at your own home, at my natural home studio in Papamoa, or at the beach. Remember, these photos are simple and natural, they aren't about everything being perfect, just a raw capture of this beautiful moment in time! Please note, if you live outside the Tauranga area there will be an additional travel fee. Motherhood: As above either at your own home or at my natural home studio in Papamoa. Remember, these photos are simple and natural, I just need a clear, uncluttered space or a plain wall. Whats important is the people in it! Please note, if you live outside the Tauranga area there will be an additional travel fee.
  • How long will the shoot take?
    Depending on which package you go for, the shoot will range anywhere from 2.5-5 hours! Hair and makeup will take a minimum of one hour and I require at least 1.5 hours to photograph you.
  • Are we able to just buy digital?
    Yes! My boudoir packages include hair and makeup, the photoshoot, and either 11 images or the whole gallery! You can find out more by getting in touch and requesting my full pricing. Print products are also available to purchase.
  • Will my images be displayed on social media?
    No! I only ever share what my clients allow me to and I will always check with you before sharing anything intimate or revealing!
  • Do you only shoot in black & white?
    No! However, the majority of images will be in black and white as that is my style and what I love. Sometimes there will be some gorgeous natural-toned images that come through and of course, by request!
  • Where is the shoot done?
    Either at your own home/bach/hotel or at my natural home studio in Papamoa. My boudoir shoots are designed to be organic and unique to each client, rather than a "cookie cutter" photo shoot in a studio. We can discuss the location upon booking your shoot.
  • What do I wear and bring?
    Keep it simple! I say less is more! We can create magic with a simple white shirt or sheet! You can find out more about what to bring and how to prepare in my blog posts.
