Frequently Asked Questions

If you're looking for newborn baby, child and family photography in Sydney, then chances are your search is going to give rise to plenty of questions. To make life easier, we’ve provided answers to some of the most frequently asked questions we get here at Sydney Treasures Photography. However, if you don't find the answers to your questions below, then don't hesitate to give us a quick call. We're always more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

  • How much does it cost to book a session for child / family photography in Sydney?

    Our newborn baby, child and family photography sessions come at a transparent, flat rate of $150. You will pay this fee when you book a session with us. Although the booking fee is non-refundable, you are more than welcome to reschedule your booking (free of charge) in the event of unfortunate weather or illness.

  • What will the photography session involve?

    The session fee covers 2-3 hours of professional photography. In this time we will capture a wide variety of stunning images, all of which will be presented in an online gallery for seven days. The number of photos we take in a session can vary, but you can rest assured that you'll have plenty of fantastic snaps to choose from by the time the session is over.

  • How far in advance should we book?

    We always recommend booking a session as early as possible. We find that we are busiest on weekends, so always try to book well in advance if you would like a weekend family photography session. For your newborn baby session, it's best to book while you are pregnant, so we can make sure that we can photograph your baby within 10 days.

  • What area do you cover for outdoor photographs?

    Most of our photo shoots are taken around the wonderful backdrops of the Eastern Suburbs and Sydney Metropolitan area. However, we respect that everyone has individual needs and we can accommodate child and family photography sessions in West and North Sydney too for a small additional fee.

  • Do you charge for travel?

    We don't charge you any extra for photo shoots in the Eastern Suburbs and Sydney Metropolitan area. For all other areas, we will charge a small additional fee of $50 to cover the extra travel costs.

  • Are my images safe online?

    Yes, they are. We treat your privacy with the utmost importance and all online galleries are securely password protected. Only you will be able to access the photographs from your session.

  • I am pregnant. Can I book you before my baby is born?

    Absolutely. It is actually best to book your newborn baby session while you are still pregnant. Then when your baby arrives, please give me a call or email and schedule the exact time of the session. Newborn baby sessions must be done in the first 10 days after being born.

  • What if I want to show friends and family my images?

    Well, that's no problem at all. After you purchase your chosen images, we will put them up onto a complimentary online gallery page for all your friends and family to enjoy. After all, family photography in Sydney should accommodate for everybody who matters, including your extended family and friends. You will receive digital files on any our packages, so you can share your photos anytime.

  • What time of the day is the best for the photo session?

    This really depends. Morning and late afternoon are always great for capturing warm light and natural portrait images on location. However, our good friend the weather ensures that there's no perfect answer to this question. Luckily, Katsu has been taking stunning professional shots outdoors for well over a decade, and he'll always manage to capture the best images in any lighting situation. A true photographer always knows how to make the best of any situation.

  • Do we need to wear particular clothing?

    You're free to wear what you want. Nonetheless, we recommend bringing a couple of different outfits and clothing accessories for variety. We also find that simple designs produce more focused and striking shots than outfits with busy patterns. The choice, however, is completely yours.

  • Can you provide outfits?

    Yes, we have several outfits you can try out on the day for newborn babies. We can even arrange to have a professional stylist to be present on the day to find the perfect outfits for your little ones (this does incur an additional charge). If you would like a professional stylist, then please let us know when booking.

  • Can we use different outfits throughout the session?

    You are more than welcome to use as many different outfits as you like. However, please make sure you have all the outfits ready. This will ensure you get the most out of your session time with us.

  • Do you have props and toys for newborn baby sessions?

    Yes we do. We have several and we will bring a variety of suitable props and outfits for the session.

  • Do you sell gift vouchers?

    Indeed we do. Gift vouchers start at our standard session price of $150 and are valid for one calendar year after purchase.

  • What size are your prints?

    To ensure you have the choice you want, our print sizes vary. All prints are printed on professional quality photo paper to bring out the best in every image. Our print sizes are as follows:
    5x7 inch / 8x12 inch (A4 Paper Size) / 11x14 inch, 16x24 inch & 20x30 inch (Poster Size).

  • What size canvas do you print on?

    As with our prints, our canvases also come in a range of sizes, ensuring you make the most out of your family photography session with us. Canvas sizes available are:
    30x45cm / 50x75cm / 75x100cm & 90x135cm

  • Do you sell digital images?

    Yes, unlike most other companies offering babies, kids and family photography in Sydney, we allow you to keep your digital images. In fact, all our packages include digital images for you to keep. That way, you can make unlimited copies for all of your loved ones, view them on your computer, email or share them on any social networking sites such as Facebook or blogs.

  • Will you travel to my home to take photographs?

    We are more than happy to bring our family photography session right to your doorstep. It doesn't matter if you want your photography session to be in your home, backyard, or the park around the corner. To get the best possible photographs, however, please let us know the brightest time of the day inside your home.

  • Do I need to decide on a package when I book or before the session?

    Not at all. First, we want you to see your beautiful photos before you make any kind of commitment. We're that confident that we’ll get the perfect shots, that we leave it completely up to you what package to choose after the session is complete. As with our previous customers, we're sure that you’ll be that happy with our images that you'll choose one of our best packages anyway!

  • What is your most popular optional product?

    Our most popular optional product is our custom design canvas 75cmx100cm. All our canvases are custom designed, ready to hang and are a great gift for everyone.

  • Is there any age limit?

    We don't believe in age limits. Family photography sessions can be enjoyed by all ages. However, for children under 4, we do recommend booking a session away from our home studio in a natural location. Our experience has taught us that this makes the children feel more comfortable and less irritable. This, in turn, brings out the best smiles and emotions in the photographs.

  • We have two or more children, can they be photographed separately, together, and can we be photographed as a family?

    Absolutely. We want you to take home images to treasure forever. You and your immediate family can be photographed together and separately to give you a wonderful mix of memorable photos to enjoy for years to come. Your pets are most welcome, too.

  • What if my baby or child cries or is unhappy. Are we guaranteed a good shot?

    We use over a decade of professional experience to ensure we get just the shots you're looking for. We will always strive to get that perfect shot, and we're always happy to recommend locations that are likely to do just that. If the unfortunate event arises that we really can't get a great shot (this is very rare), then we can always re-schedule the session at a time that suits you.
