Pricing and Details

I am a natural light photographer, so almost all my portrait sessions are done outside in the natural light. Light during the middle of the day is coming from directly overhead and is harsh, therefore not the best light for outdoor shoots. I recommend booking sessions after mid-afternoon. The closer the sun is towards setting the better the light is and the more beautiful the result I will create. That being said I can and have worked with all kinds of lights to make them a bit more magic than they seem!

Stomp Wines

Maison Dieu Paddock

Maison Dieu Paddock with View

Near Nowlan Park

Glendon Road

Anglican Church

You can choose the location, preferably local to Singleton (NSW Australia). There are extra costs associated with travel to other locations, we can discuss at time of booking. Some locations I use are Nowlan Park, Allan Bull Reserve and Rose Point, I can also come to your house/property. Singleton Showground is another location but I have to book it. Wineries are often happy for you to come out and get your photos done there, and you can go and have lunch at the cellar door beforehand and make a day of it. Locations outside of singleton will involve extra travel costs, but all the ones you can see on the map above are local and lovely different locations. Some might not be suitable for young children though.

Wedding Photography 

The celebration of a man and woman pledging their love is such a special occasion. I would love to photograph yours for you. Have a look at the different packages I have listed on my wedding packages page and and let me know what your preference is. 

Have another sort of photo shoot you would like? Contact me with what you want and I will create a custom pacage to suit your needs.

What You Get

Each package lists specifics but overall you get the experience of a professional photographer with quality gear, your photo shoot, professional editing, and then high resolution images in JPG format, with full printing rights. You get full printing rights along with the photos so you can pick your favourites to print, and please do print them, because digital files get lost, USBs and disks can get lost or damaged and soon enough we won’t be using that technology, so get hard copies! I keep copies of all the edited files for at least two years. So if yours go missing in that time I will still be able to help!

If you are happy for me to display a few of your photos on my website, and Facebook that would be great but if you would rather keep a low profile online I will not put any of them up, just let me know. If you are happy with my services and are willing to, I would also appreciate a review. You can review/recommend me easily on Facebook. If you are not on facebook just go to my google my business page and leave one there.

Clothing

What you wear is particularly important for the family sessions.

Carefully selected accessories make you stand out; scarves, belts, hair accessories and jewellery all add texture to the photo.

Your family photos will look better if there is some colour coordination. But not with everyone wearing the exact same shade of colour. Choose a theme, about three colours or try to pick a similar shade, but different colours or you could go for all different shades of blue except for one person. Have a look around online or in my portfolio for some inspo! Please don’t wear clothing with words on it as words will distract the focus away from you. People will look at the photo and naturally start reading them, instead of looking at you.

I want you to look your best and with attention drawn to your face not anywhere else. Because I take photos from various angles and with you in different positions (like lying on the ground) so ladies I recommend considering how your neckline will look in photos and be aware of your hemline too!  Elegance looks great in a photo. Layering is always a nice effect, though is not easy if the season is too hot. Photos that have too much bare legs and arms can really distract the eyes away from your beautiful face. So think about what people will see. I want you to look your best!

“After following her work all year I finally booked a family photo session in November – best thing I have ever done! A true professional, Clare was friendly, creative and flexible. I am over the moon about the quality of the photos. They are stunning! My family will be thrilled with their Christmas presents. I wouldn’t hesitate to do another session in the future and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for some unique yet remarkable family photos.”

Payment and refunds for sessions and events – excluding weddings

There is a 30% deposit to confirm the booking and date of your session. This is non-refundable. Paying the deposit confirms that you accept the details that have been discussed about your session and that you have received, and understand Clear Light Photography’s price, and what the price includes. In the event of cancellation the deposit/booking fee will be forfeited. Clear Light Photography may allow a claim towards other photography by Clear Light Photography within the following three (3) months. Full payment is due on the day of your session either in cash or by direct deposit. If Clear Light Photography deems it reasonable that your session be re-scheduled due to weather or illness or other unforeseen circumstances the booking may be transferred to the next convenient available date. 

Newborn sessions come with more flexibility so if your little one arrives earlier or later I will fit your session in!

With Covid-19 I am currently allowing large family sessions, event and wedding re-bookings that are legally impossible to proceed with, to be on hold for an extra nine (9) months before they are re-booked but new dates will still have to be fit into Clear Light Photography’s calendar.

I am more than willing to work with all my clients to provide you with the best service all the time but especially during theses covid-19 craziness times and understand that no one but God knows what is going to be happening in the next few months. If you have any questions or concerns please contact me about your booking and let’s chat.
