Alana Taylor Photography FAQ's

Newborn Sessions are best done between 2-3 weeks after birth.  Sessions take between 1-2 hours depending on how baby feels on the day. I provide all props for your newborn session including, Hard props such as buckets, baskets etc, Headbands, Hats and more. So Parents kick back & relax whilst I work my magic and create some amazing images for you.

 

Maternity Sessions are best done between 32-36 weeks before your little baby prepares itself for birth & moves down into your pelvis for birth.  This remarkable little manoeuvre makes your belly “drop” & is not very flattering on camera. Some mums never drop, some drop well before 32 weeks…it’s all up to you!  Maternity sessions are done at my studio and session is 1 hour.  You will arrive with 2 sets of outfits (for both yourself & your partner) & we will change as we go along. However I do have a selection of beautiful Maternity Gowns that we can use during your session. Siblings are welcome at no extra charge.  A what to wear guide will be forwarded to make shopping or packing a little easier for your session. In addition, I work with Mama Rentals who offer an amazing collection of maternity dresses for hire at a discount for my clients. If you dont see something you love in my gallery you are more than welcome to hire a dress direct from Mama Rentals

I am Melbourne's most affordable Kids and Baby Photographer.

 

DO YOU HAVE PUBLIC LIABILITY INSURANCE?

Yes, I am fully insured for public liability through AAMI Business Insurance.

 

DO I NEED TO PAY A DEPOSIT?

Yes, a non-refundable deposit need to be paid to secure your booking.

 

HOW LONG WILL EDITING TAKE?

Editing usually takes 1-2 Weeks. Once I have finished I will send you a link to your Private online gallery with your password to view and pick your images. 

 

WILL MY CHOSEN IMAGES BE WATERMARKED?

No chosen images will be high resolution and will not be watermarked

CAN I BUY EXTRA DIGITAL IMAGES OR PRINTS?

Yes, extra images can be purchased, please see price and packages for more information. Prints and product can also be purchased if you wish. You can see prices "HERE"

 

WHERE SHOULD I PRINT MY IMAGES?

I offer Prints and products printed from a Professional Printing Lab that deals directly with Photographers, you can see my prices on my Prints page. However if you prefer to do them yourself you will need to find a great quality printing lab! The cheap chain store labs (Kmart, BigW, Officeworks etc) are a good low cost option for your snap shots but honestly the quality is not the same and it is a shame to spend the money on your lovely photos and not print them with the same amount of love. The little extra cost is SO worth it!

In saying all this if you decide to print your images through someone other than myself I cannot guarantee colour or quality.

1 - My Pro Photo

The My ProPhoto order online is an easy to use interface that will allow you to upload all of your photographs to order as prints, and then delivered to your home

2 - Camera House

I love the convenience and quality of Camera House. Order Online and have it delivered or pickup from store

https://www.camerahouse.com.au/photo-prints

3 - DCL Pro

This is my preferred Professional Printer. You can email him and tell him that I sent you :) You basically email him the images that you want printed. Advise him of the sizes and he will do the rest :)

4 - In person - In store 

If you dont want to do them online I suggest the following, but please be advised these will not be as good as the ones above.

WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY NEWBORN SESSION?

 

BOOK NOW! I only take on a certain amount of mums due dates per month and I book out fast! Basically the way it works with a newborn shoot is if you are interested in booking a photoshoot for when bubs is born you provide me with your due date so I can put it in my calender. Once baby is born you need to contact me with 48 hours so we can book in a time within the first 2-3 weeks or so of birth so you can get all the gorgeous sleepy photos I usually leave spots available for newborns as I have so many ladies due dates in my calender. If you do not book in prior to having your baby then it will be unlikely I will be able to do newborn photos for you so its best to book in early. 

 

WHAT DAYS ARE OFFERED FOR NEWBORN SESSIONS?

Please Note: The days offered for your newborn shoot will be a weekday (not a weekend) and will be within about the first 2-3 weeks of birth. The shoot will also take place early morning (about 9am) as babies sleep much better for the shoot at this time. 

 

DO YOU WORK ON WEEKENDS?

No, Unfortunately I do not work Weekends

 

CAN MY OTHER CHILDREN COME ALONG TO THE NEWBORN SESSION?

If you have selected the Family/Sibling Package - If you have other kids and you want sibling photos done I suggest bringing the other sibling/s for a short portion of the shoot and having Dad or someone pick them up as they can get extremely restless due to the long duration (anywhere from 1-2 hours) and its very hot in the studio. Having unsettled kids in the session can affect the newborn portion and I prefer not to have babies or toddlers in the studio for your newborn shoot as it can be very distracting and make for a very unsettled baby which can then affect your photos or the shots that we may be able to get. Toddlers are very unpredictable and its not always possible to get sibling and newborn images if your toddler is not being cooperative. 

 

WHERE IS YOUR STUDIO LOCATED?

I have a comfortable and cozy in-home studio located in Cranbourne (30min from Melbourne CBD).

 

ARE PARENT AND SIBLING SHOTS EXTRA DURING A NEWBORN SESSION?

Yes, if you want to get photos with your baby or you want a sibling shot you will need to get the Family/Sibling Package. 

 

DO YOU TRAVEL OR DO IN-HOME SHOOTS?

No. I do not travel to peoples homes for your photography session.
