WHERE DO SESSIONS TAKE PLACE?
Your home makes an amazing setting as does the great outdoors. Think about locations that have meaning to your family – do you have a favorite park? A route you always go for a walk along the beach? Locations that are important to you and your family are the perfect spot to capture you in an authentic way. Newborn photo sessions are almost always held within your home as this is the easiest and most comfortable option for my clients and it allows your family’s story to be told more genuinely.
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR FOR OUR SESSION?
I truly believe that the interactions and expressions in the photos we create together will be what makes you treasure an image, not so much what you’re wearing or where you’re standing. After booking your session I will send you a complete session guide – how to prepare, what to expect, what to wear, product showcases, etc.
ARE DIGITAL FILES INCLUDED WITH THE SESSION FEE?
My session fee includes my time and the creation of your images. Prints, products and digital files are purchased separately. This allows each family to purchase exactly what fits their needs and budget and also allows families to view their images before making a decision.
HOW DO YOU CHOOSE WHAT IMAGES END UP IN MY GALLERY?
I look at each and every image I take at your session and hand select the best images. I am looking for images that are genuine, relaxed and full of natural connections. I pick a minimum of 40 images, but there are usually many more than that.
HOW FAR OUT DO YOU BOOK?
I typically book out one to three months in advance. If you are interested in newborn portraits, please book your session as soon as you can WHILE you’re pregnant. Please do not wait until your baby is born as my schedule fills up very quickly and I do not want you to be left without newborn images. Already delivered? I do try to leave a few openings in my schedule for newborn sessions. Contact me today to see if I can squeeze you in.
HOW MUCH CAN I EXPECT TO INVEST IN MY SESSION AND BOUTIQUE PRODUCTS?
Clients typically invest between $900 and $1800+ on their custom portrait session with me. The $300 Session Fee is due at the time of booking to reserve your session date.
WHAT IF IT RAINS OR SOMEONE GETS SICK?
Because I work solely with children and families and have for many years, I know that flexibility is key. A portrait session is not an every day occurrence and I want your images to be perfect. If we have an outdoor session planned and the weather looks uncooperative, I will contact you to coordinate a different date. If your child is under the weather, it is imperative that we reschedule. Sick kids typically don’t act themselves, and as their parent, you will notice in your images if they aren’t feeling well.
