Terms and Conditions

A session fee of $125 is required at the time of booking to secure your session date. Your chosen date is not in my diary until your payment is received. This amount is not refundable but can be transferred once in the event of illness. Please give at least 24-48 hours notice where possible. Any subsequent reschedules will incur a fee of $100 to secure a new booking.


Your session fee covers immediate family (parents and siblings) up to 5 people. Additional people outside of this will attract a fee of $25 per person.


Images from your session must not be used for commercial use without permission from Peta Nikel.

It is advisable to book your newborn session once you are given your due date. Sessions are limited to 12 per month to allow for the unpredictable nature of newborns.

Any promotions where a discounted rate is offered, this shall not apply to current booked sessions. Offers may not be used in conjunction with other offers. One offer per session.

Please advise through your client questionnaire or by email, if there are any family members that have any special needs/ circumstances.

The studio has a zero tolerance policy for disrespect towards Peta and her photography equipment. Please ensure care is taken at all times around the studio equipment, to prevent breakages and to keep children safe. Non compliance with this will result in cancellation of the session immediately. No refund will be issued as per the cancellation terms.

We reserve the right to refuse service at any time. Please do not arrive at the studio unwell as this puts Peta at risk as well as future clients. This will result in cancellation of the session immediately. No refund will be issued.

Any package or voucher credits need to be used within 28 days of session. After this time they will expire.

Images not ordered within 3 months of session will be archived for 12 months before being purged. Images can be retrieved at any time during the 12 months with a $100 retrieval fee payable at the time of placing ordering.
