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?

As I am currently in the transition phase of relocating, I do not have a studio. Therefore, we can choose an outdoor location for your family shoot, such as a park, beach etc. Maybe even somewhere that your kids know and will be sure to love. We could even take the photos in the comfort of your own home or garden. The choice is yours!

How long does a family session last for?

Family sessions usually last for 1-1,5 hours.

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 group will compliment your photos.

When will we receive our photos?

You will usually receive your online gallery within 3-4 weeks and shortly after this you will receive your USB. Depending on my current workload, this estimated time frame could be much shorter.

Will my photos be watermarked?

No, they will not be.

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, included in your welcome package are some tips to not only prepare for the shoot but to also get the most out of it 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. I will then send you your 'Family Welcome Package' to enjoy.

We had a fantastic photo shoot with Gill. She is amazing and our pictures are beautiful. She worked her magic with the kids and knew how to make them smile. Thank you Gill for capturing precious family moments and for the excellent quality and effort you have put into our photo shoot. You have given us memories that will last forever.

We would like to thank you so much for the easy and great family shoot during a walk through the park. For me it was very important, that the photos are natural. I do not like photos taken of myself, but you made the shoot easy and comfortable for me. So you are the first photographer who was able to manage that! :D I definitely would recommend you!
