FAQ

What should I/we wear?

HEADSHOTS: Keep it simple so anyone looking at your pics isn't distracted by what you're wearing.
Think casual but tidy. Bring one "formal" thing. Nothing too glam, floral, or costume-y. Keep make-up fairly minimal. Bring clips etc if you want to change your hair.
If in doubt, bring everything and we will whittle it down to 3-4 options.

FAMILIES: keep it casual. Wear what you feel MOST COMFY in. Bring changes if you like.
You might like to coordinate (jeans and variations on the same coloured top). There are no rules though!
What's important is that you feel relaxed and not like you have to suck your tummy in.
I always suggest wearing what you'd wear out for lunch on a Sunday.

Who owns the photographs?

As the "commissioning agent", you do. IN ADDITION - and according the NZIPPA standard terms under which I operate (look for them in the Essential Info part of my Menu) - I co-own the images with you.

What are "proof sheets"?

Sometimes called a "contact sheet", it's a pdf of low-res thumbnails of your photos. I can fit twenty thumbnails on a page. You may receive up to 5 pages in total to choose from.
You proof sheets are watermarked but this will be removed from your selected photos.
Please don't take screenshots and use them publicly in any way.

What happens if I can't attend on the day?

It depends on how much notice you can give me. More than 72 hours notice = full refund. 72-24 hours notice = 50% refund. Less than 24 hours notice = no refund. These are the laid out in the NZIPP standard contract (2019).
