Frequently Asked Questions

Question 01 : What location will my session be held?

While we are based in Melbourne, we're all about capturing you and yours in a location that suits you! A beautiful window light in your home, a garden or park nearby? Footscray park, Fitzroy alleways, Maribyrnong river are all rad options. We also love to travel, want an Eiffel Tower* portrait lets do it!

Question 02 : Does the price include digital negatives?

Yes we have packages that include digital negatives.

Question 03 : When is the best time to take photos?

Our favourite time of the day is in the last couple of hours before sunset, golden hour!

Question 04 : How long does it take to get our photos?

We deliver all our images via an online gallery, portraits within 2 weeks of session and weddings within 6 weeks of the day. 
Where possible we like to offer a sneak peek on our social streams, so make sure you follow us!

Question 05 : I'm not getting married in Melbourne will you travel?

Thats a big fat yes! So far we've photographed weddings in Cairns, Christchurch NZ, and all over Victoria*

Question 06 : Do you have a studio?

 We used to have a space in Kingsville, but outgrew it and are looking for something even more awesome. So we now photograph only on location! Our rad new office space is in Fitzroy, perfect to meet you to discuss your wedding photography plans

Question 08 : Do you photograph newborns?

Yes I love a good squishy babe, while we've moved away from the more posed baby photos we do like to photograph babe at home with you in a natural relaxed environment.

Question 09 : Birth photography, I'm interested but not sure?

This is probably a question best answered in conversation over a cuppa, but I can honestly say that I feel it's up there as important as documenting your wedding. You want to have your support there to support you. Birth photography is photojournalism at its best, fly on the wall, recording those never get back moments. I know from my own experience it helped me remember things I hadn't realised I'd forgotten from Mini's arrival. But don't just take my word from it, here's another perspective from a Dad and a client over on DeconstructingDadhood 

Question 07 : Where do babies come from?

Ask your Father.

Investing in your memories

Capturing your LIFE with Hyggelig Photography means having professional photographs as a record of your most precious WOW moments. As an experienced birth photographer, baby snuggler or toddler wrangler. We capture your real moments, and the fun bits inbetween with maybe a cheesy smile for Grandma. Family photography is so important, you never get this time back, and you want a record of ALL of you together. Theres never a right time, just make a time for it to be right!

Hyggelig Photography LOVE weddings. Like its kind of ridiculous how much Janet and her crew enjoy documenting the story of your day. To see you all fancied up, spending an amazing day with your nearest and dearest, and most of all marrying that main squeeze of yours, we want to capture it all! For the most part we want you to ignore that we're there, but at "just" the right moments we'll join in the fun. Its about your day being filled to the BRIM with memories and having the images afterwards to remember them by. 

Portrait sessions from $250
Birth photography packages from $950
& Wedding packages from $3900

I am so lucky to have had Janet shoot my wedding day. Her photos really capture the feelings in each moment, so much so that I didn't need a videographer because Janet's photos tell the whole story. I can't stop looking at all my photos, they are all so beautiful and natural! She is so lovely to deal with, I can't thank her enough for being such an important part of my big day and I highly recommend her! 

Cara Plonsker

Janet and the team were beyond amazing!
Not only on our wedding day but all the planning leading up to the big day, from the moment we met Janet we knew she was a perfect fit for what we wanted. Janet, Manda, and Mandy made the day so much fun and we were honestly sad to say goodbye at the end of the night.
I cannot wait for our next special occasion to get them back again.
Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a photographer

Jessica Gray

Sean and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the incredible photos you took on our wedding day. From the Engagement shoot to the pre-wedding location scout to guiding us on the day, your calming manner and ability to incorporate our ideas will be forever cherished.  A special thanks also goes to Manda, the most amazing assistant who also went above and beyond to make our day so special! 
You two are incredible artists and we can't thank you or recommend you enough.  With many thanks, 
Jessica and Sean Gray
