Are you a qualified photographer?
ask me anything
Yes, I have a Diploma in Professional Photography and have been working in the industry since 2015. I am also a registered and insured Australian business and hold a current Working With Children Check (WWWC).
Are you immunised?
Safety of your baby is my number one priority and as such I always ensure that my vaccinations (including Whooping Cough and Influenza) are up to date. I have also had four vaccinations for COVID-19.
What services to you offer?
Do you service my area?
Foxbelle Photography services suburbs right across Inner and South East Melbourne, the Yarra Ranges, Yarra Valley, Bayside and beyond and all locations within 50km of the Dandenong Ranges are included in your chosen photography session.
Foxbelle Photography is also available to travel interstate and to other Melbourne locations such as Mornington Peninsula, Red Hill, and Flinders by arrangement (additional fee may apply).
When is payment due?
A $300 deposit is required at the time of booking to secure your session - the balance is due one week prior to your session or due date. This payment is non-refundable, however can be transferred to another date.
Where should I have my outdoor photos taken?
There are so many beautiful locations for your outdoor photography session and together we will find the perfect spot for your family.
It's worth considering whether your family prefers the beach or a garden. Do they love trees and plants, or sand and water? Or perhaps there is a park or reserve near your home that is meaningful to your family?
What should I wear to my Photography Session?
Wear what you are comfortable with and what makes you feel most like YOU. Most of all keep it simple and avid logos, fine stripes and bold or fluorescent colours. Shoes are not required for in-home and beach sessions.
For Maternity Sessions consider clothing that will accentuate your beautiful belly. And if you would like to organise something a little extra special, Mamarentals offer a beautiful range of dresses to hire at a discounted rate for clients of Foxbelle Photography. Head on over and check them out and be sure to ask me for the discount code.
If you are unsure of what to wear or would like some styling advice, feel free to send through some photos of what you have in mind.
What should I expect during my Photography Session?
My goal is to create and capture authentic emotion and connection, which means that your photography session will be filled with love, laughter and lots of play. Your only job is to show up with an open heart and I will direct and guide you the entire way.
What happens if it rains or I am sick?
I will be keeping a close eye on the weather and any decisions to reschedule your session will be made on the day (and up to one hour prior). It is amazing how often the weather clears up at photo time! If you are sick , or I am, we will reschedule - no problem. Please refer to my COVID-Safe Plan for more information.
What happens after my Photography Session?
A sneak peak from your photography session will often be shared on Instagram of Facebook within a few days. The full selection of your photos will be available to few within 1-2 weeks.
Do you sell printed photos and other photography products?
Yep, I sure do. After viewing your gallery you will have the option to purchase a variety of photo products from one of Australia's oldest and finest professional print labs and the quality and craftsmanship is second to none.
Best of all, they will accurately represent the colours and tones of the photos that you have invested in a professional photographer to capture for you. And they will also stand the test of time, creating heirlooms that can be passed down through the generations.
While it's definitely not necessary to print your whole galley, you may have some favourites that you would like to hang on your wall or share with family. Or you might want to create a beautiful heirloom album.
