What does the sessions include?
All sessions are for up to 5 immediate family members only. (This includes parents and children only) There is an additional charge for additional people included in the session)
Mini sessions are only offered a few times a year. Typically in Spring and Fall and Holiday time. A mini session includes a 20 minute session and you will receive 10 fully edited digital images which are placed in an online password protected gallery where you can view and download your images.
A family session is approximately 1 – 1-1/2 hour and you will receive 20-25 fully edited digital images that are placed in an online password protected gallery where you can view and download your images.
Side note: While everyone (grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc) love to be involved and would like to come along to help with the kids or just to watch, please keep in mind that sometimes it just becomes too stressful and overwhelming for the children. There are too many distractions and instructions coming from all directions and it may become difficult for the little ones to focus and feel relaxed. Please keep this in mind when coming for a session.
What should we wear?
Try to stick with colors that let your beautiful face take center stage instead of competing with it for attention. Plain, subdued colors that work with your coloring put you on display. When choosing the perfect color look for tones that complement or contrast with your skin tone. For example, olive and darker skin tones look great in white or cream while fairer skin tones look best with rich, earthy tones. Embracing colors that look great on you in your photo shoot makes you feel confident in every shot, and we all know nothing is more attractive than confidence.
ADD INTEREST WITH ACCENTS. Warm, earthy tones, pastels and cool colors that work with your complexion may be your best friends when it comes to choosing the right color to wear on your shoot; however, that doesn’t mean that you have to abandon your favorite shade of pink to put your best face forward. Brighter colors like pink, red or yellow can provide the perfect pop when appropriately paired with base tones like greens, blues, black, browns and tans.
WHAT TO AVOID. Be sure to avoid strong patterns, accessories that make a statement or attention-grabbing colors that distract the viewer from your natural beauty.
When is payment due?
There is a $ 50.00 non-fundable retainer which is due within 48 hours of booking your session. Remaining balance is due at time of session. A contract will be sent and must be signed and returned within the 48 hours. If the contract and retainer are not paid and returned, your date/time requested will not be reserved and will be made available for other interested parties. In the chance you are unable to keep your reserved session, we will do everything to try to accommodate a new date and time for you. If you paid your retainer for a session and were a no show without notification, you forfeit your retainer. Please keep in mind when booking your appointment to make sure you are able to keep your time. During holiday times there is very little wiggle room to squeeze people into the schedule.
For payment and full details for newborn sessions, special events and weddings, please contact me directly.
What forms of payment do you accept?
All forms of payment are accepted. Check, credit card, Paypal, Venmo are all accepted.
Do you offer gift certificates?
Yes, gift certificates can be purchased directly through the web site. You can purchase one for a session or a specific dollar amount. This is also a great option to put on your baby registry if you are interested in a newborn session.
Can you have the raw, unedited photos?
Absolutely not, so please don't ask. Raw, unedited photos do not reflect the final style of my work.
I ordered digital images and had my pictures printed elsewhere and the colors don't match.
If you order digital images and choose to have them printed elsewhere, I can not guarantee the color and quality of the lab you chose. Each lab's equipment is calibrated differently. If you order prints and products through me, I can guarantee the quality of your prints.
