Once you are interested in booking a session, get ahold of us! We check our messages daily, so you should get an immediate response that day. We will discuss all the specifics of what you are looking for with your photo session, and what types of sessions you may be interested in. We will also discuss locations, pricing, amount of people, and timing. I personally like to work with the sun, being that it gives off the best lighting for high quality pictures. About an hour before the sun sets is my favorite time to work with. However, we will always accommodate to your specific needs!
Before your session we require a deposit to book with us, which is non-refundable 48 hours before session, unless of emergency situations. This is necessary so we do not experience “no-shows” and unfilled booking slots. If you need to cancel for any reason, you have a 48 hour window to do so in order to return your deposit. If weather becomes a problem day of the photo shoot, we will reschedule accordingly.
Please arrive 10-15 minutes early! This is to avoid being too late, and missing the light from the sun. Photo sessions can be long, so we try to make them as fun as possible, especially with little ones. The day of, we will meet at the desired location and do a quick walk through of the area to find the best spots. During this time, we will be doing numerous poses, lots of standing and sitting, and moving around. Please try to feel relaxed with me! Stiffness and fake smiles can ruin a photo. We are also very patient when it comes to little ones! Please do not stress if they are misbehaving! All children do, and they are more than likely going to do it anyways, so stay calm and try to make the most of it. Candid photos make the best photos anyways! :)
If you have very small children, some ideas for a happy baby or toddler include: Bringing their favorite toy, having snacks readily available, and a bottle on hand incase they get hungry. However PLEASE make sure they eat before hand, and have their naps if needed. If a baby’s schedule is thrown off it could make for grumpy baby.
You are more than welcome to bring props of your own for the photo shoot as well. I tend to bring some of my own anyways, but we encourage you to be very involved to make it more fun! Changing of clothes is also totally acceptable, just keep in mind of timing to make sure you have enough time to change.
At the end of your session, the remaining payment will be due. We accept all major debit and credit cards, cash, checks, venmo, or paypal.
The most exciting part, seeing your beautiful photos!! Timing will range depending on the type of session you have had. Generally an hour session will take about 2-3 weeks for delivery time. For weddings or other larger events, expect 6-8 weeks.
However we will always put up sneak peeks of 2-3 photos on our Facebook page for you to see within 48 hours. (If you do not wish to have your photos posted on social media, please let me know! We want to respect the privacy of our customers!)
When your photos are done being edited, they will be displayed in a private online gallery with a password for you and your family to share. If you wish to have your photos placed on a flash drive, I just ask that you provide me with one!
If you have any further questions, reach out to us!! We can’t wait to answer them for you! :)
