The FAQ for PHOTOGRAPHY
(FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS)
Below are some common answers to the questions I usually receive when clients are booking their sessions with me. If you have any questions or would like more details, always feel free to call or email me.
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY SESSION?
As soon as possible. I’m usually booked at least 2-3 weeks ahead of time throughout the year, so book in advance for your slot. September through December holiday pictures consume the majority of my session slots and by October I’m usually booking 4-8 weeks in advance. It’s best to book now to ensure you are able to get a slot. For newborns, we will set you up for your due date and once the baby arrives and you contact me we’ll schedule the actual session date/time. I leave a limited number of time slots available each week just for newborn clients. Remember, I only take newborns out to 10 days new.
WHAT IS INCLUDED WITH MY SESSION FEE?
The session fee covers the sitting and use of my large selection of props and accessories. It does not include any proofs, prints, digital images, etc. These are purchased separately.
WHERE DO SESSIONS TAKE PLACE?
Most sessions take place outdoors on location. I do some sessions and obviously newborn sessions in the studio so we can utilize all of my fun backgrounds, outfits, props, and accessories. You can also split up your sessions between the studio and on location if desired.
WHAT IF MY CHILD IS SICK?
Please reschedule if your child isn’t feeling like him/herself. Sick kids and photo sessions just don’t mix. We want to make sure we capture your child’s REAL personality.
DO YOU PROVIDE THE PROPS/ACCESSORIES?
YES! Most of the cute props, headbands, outfits, and hats you see in my portfolio are available at the studio for you to use during your session. I am always adding to my collection so there is never a shortage of cute new things to choose from.
HOW LONG DO SESSIONS LAST?
This depends. For newborn sessions plan for at least 2-4 hours. For milestone sessions 3, 6, 9 months, baby/child sessions anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour or more depending on the needs of the child. Family sessions last 1-2 hours depending on wardrobe and locations. Large family sessions can last longer if individual smaller families are photographed.
HOW DO I SEE MY IMAGES?
Approximately 2 weeks after your session, you will be invited back to my studio for a session viewing. We review your images on my large screen monitor and select images for prints or packages.
