Frequently Asked Questions
At TAK Photography we offer our Portrait sessions in our commercially located studio. We also have the option of visiting some of the beautiful parklands and beaches for something a little different
Where will my newborn session take place?
Newborn sessions are held on the main level of my home studio, located in Browns Plains. It is fully prepped for your new bundle.
When should I book my session?
I book 6+ months in advance, as I take on a limited amount of sessions per week. This ensures that each session is given my best work and quality.
How do I reserve my session?
A session fee is required to secure all sessions, this fee covers time with a license and insured photographer, full access to entire prop collection and creative post processing.
Do I have permission to print the photos? Can I use them online?
Select packages include a CD/USB of digital images. In addition to the CD/USB, portrait clients receive a personal usage release that allows you to print the images at any photo lab of your choice for friends & family! You may not sell, edit, alter, or advertise the images in any way. If you share your photos anywhere online please give credit to the photographer, TAK Photography.
When Can you see the final images?:
Current turnaround for final images typically 4 weeks after your session.
Session fee is due to reserve your due date or book sessions on my calendar. Package Collections are selected separately and due 1 day prior to the session date.
When do you book your maternity/newborn/milestone session:
Maternity and/or Newborn sessions: It is HIGHLY recommended that you reserve these session in advance. Most clients book right after their first solo, or soft book prior to that. Please do not wait. Once your newborn arrives we can be sure to schedule baby within the first two weeks after birth while they’re still sleepy for those curly poses. Sessions are booked in advance, occasionally there are last minute openings.
Milestone and family sessions should be scheduled a minimum of 2-3 months in advance. Due to the amount of returning clients that continue to book milestone and family portraits year after year, dates available to the public must be booked several months in advance to ensure available sessions as a new client. Current clients are already on the calendar into the following year.
How Long will the session last?
A typical newborn sessions takes 2-3 hours to accommodate feedings, diaper changes and transitioning between poses. Milestone, maternity and family sessions average 20-60 minutes.
Do I need to bring anything to a newborn session?
Just the baby and the diaper bag! Everything needed for a newborn session including all photography props are available in studio. You do not need to bring additional items unless you have something sentimental like a family heirloom that holds important meaning. Many store purchased items are too large for newborns and not used at our session. The studio is stocked with handmade custom sized props to use during your session.
What kind of props do you have in your studio?
Bonnets, sleepy caps, beanies, headbands, floral crowns, wraps, textured knitted layers, quilts, buckets, bowls, and outfits. Our inventory is always growing!
