I don't have enough room for the studio to be set up in my house, what are my other options?


If you prefer not to have me come to your house to photograph your newborn, cake smash or other session types, I set the studio up in my home in East Maitland.




Where should I get my images printed?


Printing - it is best to have your images printed through the professional print lab used by Dusk + Vine Photography to ensure quality and longevity is maintained. You can order through other professional print labs also. If you choose to Below is a list of professional prints labs:
Online ordering through RGBdigital (https://rgbdigital.com.au/) or via email or In store or via email through Zone Printing (www.zoneprinting.com.au, Pixel Pro (www.pixelpro.com.au), ONA Print www.onaprint.com.au), Pro AM (http://proamdigital.com.au/).
Printing at Kmart,Big W, etc will result in dull images as they do not use advanced colour profiles that photographers and professional print labs use.




I printed my images and they are dull, why don't they look like what is on screen?


Printing at Kmart,Big W, Officeworks etc will result in dull images as they do not use advanced colour profiles that photographers and professional print labs use. Please ensure you use a porfessional print lab to maintain quality and longevity. Below is a list of professional prints labs:
Online ordering through RGBdigital (https://rgbdigital.com.au/) or via email or In store or via email through Zone Printing (www.zoneprinting.com.au, Pixel Pro (www.pixelpro.com.au), ONA Print www.onaprint.com.au), Pro AM (http://proamdigital.com.au/).




How long are your Newborn Studio Sessions?


Newborn studio sessions can take anywhere from 2-4 hours depending on bub. These are done in the morning as bubs are most happiest at this time, so please try not to book any appointments or visitors for photo day. These things can over-stimulate bub and make them restless for the shoot.




Can I just get the digital files?


You can, however it works out most cost effective for you if you bundle your digitals with print and/or wall art. Dusk + Vine want your art to be kept as heirlooms to pass down on for generations and to fill your home with precious memories to admire.




Are you up-to-date with your vaccinations?


Yes! I believe this is very important! I am up-to-date with vaccinations and get the whooping cough booster and flu shot as required. As a mother of two I understand the need for these. If I happen to be sick on the day of your session we can either rescedule or I can refer you to another trusted photographer. Please do not go ahead with your session if you or a family memeber are unwell. It is no problem to reschedule. Health is number 1.




What are your qualifications?


Photography qualifications are a Diploma of Fine Art specialising in photography (both analog and digital) and a Cert 4 in Design specialising in photogrpahy along with other short-courses. I am an AIPP accredited professional photographer and am always adding to my knowledge base. I have undertaken 'safe posing' for newborns and children with world-reknowned newborn photographer Kelly Brown alongside posing training, post-production and lighting. Health and safety is of utmost importance to me I am aiming towards achieving my master of photography with the AIPP.
