Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is your pricing?

Pricing for all of our sessions vary, and for some sessions we also offer minis! Please contact me (via email or with the contact form) for pricing so that I can give you the most accurate quote for your vision.

  • How do I book a session?

Contact me via email, the contact form, or via facebook and we can discuss a date that works for the session you would like. A non refundable retainer of $100 is due upon booking in order to secure your slot.

  • What does a session include?

This depends on the package you choose when booking. All sessions come with a certain amount of high resolution digital downloads of your choosing from the gallery I put together from our time together. Some packages even include a print credit for you to use towards other products such as prints, canvas, etc..

  • Do you offer discounts?

I run specials from time to time, especially around the holidays. My mini sessions are shortened/ discounted sessions. Please follow my FB page and IG as well as sign up for my mailing list in order to be notified when these sessions occur.

  • What is the turn around time?

You will receive your gallery in 2-3 weeks. From there you can choose which digitals you’d like to download and can choose to add on more digitals and/or prints, etc… for an additional cost.

  • I would like photos taken for an event. Do you do events and if so, do I get all the photos or do I have to choose only a certain amount?

I most certainly photograph events. The price you are charged for an event covers all the digitals taken. Events are lightly edited. Light edits include exposure/cropping/straightening. Light edits DO NOT include blemish removal, headswaps, sky changes, etc..

  • Can I bring my animals?

If you are doing an indoor session at my studio, animals are not allowed inside. If you are doing an outdoor session, you can most definitely bring your animals. Please keep in mind that I can not guarantee your animals will cooperate for photos, so this is at your discretion.

  • How long are your sessions?

Session time depends on the type of session you are booking.

Mini sessions- 20 minutes

Cake Smash- 45 minutes (the first 10-15 minutes focus on portraits of the birthday boy/girl, the remaining time is when the cake is introduced)

Full sessions (outdoor/indoor)- 45 minutes (additional time is available for an additional fee)

Newborn sessions- 2 hours or less depending on cooperation of baby

  • For a cake smash, do you provide the cake?

For cake smashes, the client is responsible for bringing the cake.

  • I want to bring a custom banner and some other stuff for my child's photo session. Can you incorporate that?

If you would also like to bring anything specific like a customized banner, etc... you must let me know ahead of time and bring props 3 days prior to the session so that I can set up accordingly. Whatever you bring MUST be put together already (example: banner must be strung, if bringing any special paper pom poms, they must already be fluffed, etc...). If you do not notify me in advance , I can not guarantee that we can incorporate these items into your sessions since your set will already be up and redesigining it will cut into your session time. 

  • My baby has acne. Do you retouch?

Yes, basic skin retouching is included in newborn sessions. Since newborn editing is very tedious and time consuming, I will fully edit several images so you can see what an edited photo looks like. After you choose the images you’d like from that session, I will fully edit the rest. This will ensure that your gallery is ready in a much more timely fashion rather than me wasting time fully editing photos you decide you do not want.

  • When is the best time for newborn photos?

Newborn photos are best at 2 weeks of age or less. This is when they are the most sleepy and the easiest to pose. 

  • Do you give raw images?

No, I do not provide raw images.

  • What if I just want all the unedited photos? I don’t want to pay extra for editing and would prefer to just get all of the photos.

I do not provide unedited photos as it does not reflect my work.
