Frequently Asked Questions
What is included in the Session Fee?
Your session fee covers everything from your design session to your ordering session. Printed products and digital file collections are sold separately as their pricing varies when created as each item is hand crafted at a professional print lab.
Where will my session take place?
Your session location will be decided at your design session. We will work together to select a location that will suite your family and that is near your home. For instance if your family is more of a city family we will choose an urban location in the town you reside in or visit frequently. If your family is county and loves to be in nature we will select a park or Farm that will fit your style.
How long will my session take?
Your family session will take between 1 and 2 hours in length depending on how many individuals will be photographed. Most sessions take about 90 minutes and are filled with fun.
What should we wear?
We will discuss this in detail at your design session but I would recommend you chose colors that you are drawn to and to look around your home and in your closet to see what color this might be. Try to avoid busy printed outfits and if you do a print try to keep it to one person and feed everyone else’s outfits off that one item. Also keep your family in the same color family whether it be warm tones (reds, oranges, yellows) or cool tones (Greens, Blues, and Purples). Accessories are great as well as layers. I am on call between your design session and portrait session to help with putting your families outfits together and I will come to your home or go shopping with you if you need assistance.
How do I know you will be able to get good pictures of my children?
First this is what I do. I prep you on how to prep them so they will be excited to work with me. We plan to have fun and play. Yes I will created posed portraits but we will have fun doing so. I promise to capture your children being who they are and though not every child is willing to cooperate with me as everyone has an off day. I do offer a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. If I don’t get at least 4 pictures of your child that you absolutely love we will do a re-shoot 1 to 2 weeks after your session at no additional cost to you, before you schedule your ordering session.
How many people can be part of my family session?
A family session is for immediate family between 3 and 7 family members. Anything over this will require additional time therefore will require an additional $15 per person.
