Why choose Captivated Photography?
I have been photographing families and babies for over 7 years, and whilst anyone can pick up a camera and snap a few pics, professional photography is something that requires a lot of skill and expertise. I have spent a lot of time over the last 6 plus years developing my skills as a photographer and artist to ensure that my clients have the highest quality photographs.
​The Australian Institute of Professional Photography is an organisation that provides accreditation to skilled professional photographers in Australia.

I am so happy to be an Accredited Professional Photographer with the AIPP and hope that this reassures my clients that when you book me, you’re booking a professional photographer.

When should I book in?

Bookings are always best made in advance, especially for Maternity and Newborn Bookings or if you know for example you would really love your family photographs taken in Spring or Autumn.  We usually book-out up to 4 months in advance. For Newborn and Maternity sessions it’s best to book soon after after your 12week scan.

What exactly does the session cost?
You will see my pricing is designed to allow the utmost flexibility with regards to products, every single family I photograph is unique and I don’t believe in one size fits all and for this reason when you book your session you only pay a Session Fee for your chosen session and that will secure your chosen date or due date in my calendar. After your session we will spend time going through all our products and options with you so you can decide how you’d like to showcase all your gorgeous memories! 
How long will it be after my session to see the images?
Usually for Family and Older Baby sessions we have you back into the studio for your gallery reveal appointment within two weeks, however sometimes life happens and if you’re unable to make it to a gallery reveal appointment within two weeks we will work around you to find a suitable time as soon as we can. 
At newborn sessions we go through your images on the same day right after your session in the studio.
Do you offer payment plans?
Yes, we have flexible payment plan for orders over $1,000 that we can set up at your gallery reveal appointment with you. A 10% Deposit is due at your viewing session and the remainder can put put onto an interest free payment plan with PayRight –
Once we order how long till we receive our products?
If you’ve paid for your products upfront at your gallery reveal then your products will be ordered within 3 business days or within 7 business days for albums, you should allow 4-5 weeks from the date of full payment until you have your products. However in peak times (Easter, Christmas) due to suppliers taking holidays the turn around time can be up to 12 weeks from the date of order.

Printing Your Memories

I believe that printing our memories is really important, coming from a background in social work and human services, I have seen first hand the effect that a sense of belonging can have on a child and just how important it is for families to be fostering and reinforcing that sense of belonging for their children.

Take a look at these snippets from an article written in the Huff Post about ” How Family Portraits Boost Your Child’s Self Esteem”

“It lets children learn who they are and where they fit,” says Judy Weiser. a psychologist, art therapist and author based in Vancouver. “They learn their genealogy and the the uniqueness of their own family and its story. When a child sees a family portrait with them included in the photograph they say to themselves: ‘These people have me as part of what they are, that’s why I belong here. This is where I come from.’”

How many of us used to look through those old slip in photo albums of our parents? Or boxes and boxes of prints that came from old rolls of film. I used to love going through all those photos, seeing my mum holding me as a baby, how much hair my dad had! 😉 ( Sorry dad!)

Let’s make sure we continue the tradition and ensure our children get the same wonder and excitement from seeing their childhood one day!
