FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is custom photography?
Custom photography keeps the client and their experience in mind. Your session is carefully planned starting as soon as we have your pre-consultation where we get to know each other better. I offer a FULL SERVICE experience. I pride myself and my business in providing my clients with high quality professional Heirloom products that will last a lifetime. I also provide everything we need for newborn sessions and have a variety of maternity wardrobe pieces for my momma clients.
When should I book my Maternity or Newborn session?
NOW! The sooner the better. I strongly suggest booking your maternity session the moment you find out you are expecting and booking your newborn session by the end of your second trimester to ensure a spot on my calendar. Newborns are photographed within the first 2 weeks of their life, so it is VERY important you schedule accordingly.
What should I wear to my session?
My style of photography is very soft and simple. I always suggest neutral and soft colors, as these will display well on your walls no matter if your home decor changes over time. We will discuss this further and more in detail at your pre-session consultation and I am here to help you!
Do I need to bring anything to my session?
Custom photography is all about providing a full experience for the client. This will lead to a very low stress portrait session. You do not need to bring anything except the subject we are photographing to your session. If it is a family or maternity session, your change of outfits will need to be brought with you. Newborn and baby props are all provided and I have a small maternity wardrobe to select from as well.
How long will it take to view my final gallery?
Your private in person viewing/ordering appointment is scheduled for about 2 weeks after your session date, depending on availability in my schedule it could take longer. You will come to my studio for your reveal and to select your images or you have the option of an online gallery that remains active for one week. If you do not download your images before your gallery expires, there will be a $50 gallery reloading fee.
Do you include digital files?
A selected number of images are included within your session fee. You will choose your included images from your final gallery once it is delivered. You have the option to purchase additional files as well. Mini sessions include your selection of 5 high resolution digital files with a print release. While digital files are nice to have, they are not archival and do not last a lifetime, compared to the professional products that I offer that will last you more than a lifetime. I offer a wide variety of high grade professional photography products that will beautifully display your new portraits and I am happy to help you select what is best for your family and home.
