FAQ - FAMILY,SENIOR, CHILDREN AND NEWBORN
WHAT KIND OF PHOTOGRAPHER ARE YOU? I combine traditional. lifestyle and documentary photography in newborn, child, senior and family portraiture to capture genuine images for you to treasure for a lifetime. We will capture portraits with smiles, natural expressions and those beautiful unplanned moments in a relaxed session. Your custom gallery will be meaningful and precious because this is your family, full of its own love and beautiful chaos.
WHERE WILL MY SESSION BE HELD? I love both the styles of on location photography and controlled lighting in studio photography. Together we will choose the perfect location for your session.
WHEN DO NEWBORN SESSIONS OCCUR? I like to do newborn sessions within the first two weeks of life. Of course life is a journey and that may not always be possible. Portraits can be taken at any age.
HOW DO I PREPARE FOR A NEWBORN SESSION? Please arrive early to feed your baby just before starting your session. This way baby will be sleepy with a full belly. We will take as many breaks as baby and mom need. Select clothing that fits well and is not too big for baby. I have a variety of wraps and headbands.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR? Be comfortable, be yourself. Mix prints and solids. Start with a clothing piece that you love on yourself and work from there. If you feel comfortable you'll show comfortable. Do be aware of logos and printed words on clothing, sheer material and revealing undergarments, and shoes. Barefoot is always an option.
HOW DO I PREPARE MY YOUNG CHILDREN? It's most important for mom and dad to remain relaxed during the session. If your children see you having fun and smiling, they will follow your lead. Leave any child wrangling needed to me. This will be a fun and enjoyable experience for the family (yes, even dad!). Arrive with clean faces and hands. If there's a boo-boo we can discuss it's removal in post processing.
WHEN WILL I GET MY DIGITAL PHOTOS? I offer one simple, all-inclusive collection where you receive your high resolution digital files delivered via direct download and a print release. Within two weeks of your shoot, you will receive a link to your private online gallery. Digital files will be available to you in both color and black and white. You will also have the option to purchase additional prints and boutique products.
HOW DO YOU CHOOSE WHICH IMAGES ARE IN MY GALLERY FROM OUR SHOOT? I look at each and every image from your session and hand select the best images. I select images that represent your family and my artistic style. I guarantee a minimum number of images for each session, but there are usually more included.
HOW FAR OUT ARE YOU BOOKED? I typically book one week in advance. If you are interested in newborn portraits, please inquire while you are pregnant. If you already delivered, no problem, I try to leave openings in my schedule for last minute newborn sessions.
DO YOU OFFER MINI-SESSIONS? Yes; mini-sessions are great when you're looking for a slim volume of images. Available only for a single family or child portrait session.
WHAT IS A BIRTH DOCUMENTARY SESSION LIKE? This documentary session is unique to each family. Choose to include labor, delivery and/or a Fresh-48 session (document baby within the first 48 hours of birth) at a birth center. These joyous moments will be captured in a non-intrusive session and can be kept as PG as desired.
HOW MUCH DOES ALL OF THIS COST? My session packages are all-inclusive. Your session fee includes the studio/on location session experience, fully edited high resolution digital images in both color and black and white and print release from your online viewing gallery to easily download, share and print your images . Please refer to the Session Info summary for the total cost of each session. A deposit is due when booking Senior, Newborn and Birth sessions to secure your session date.
HOW DO I BOOK A SESSION WITH YOU? You can e-mail me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will respond to you shortly after and we can discuss your wants and goals (in photography and life). Smiles!
