How do I schedule a session?

We will schedule a complimentary pre-session consultation with you to meet you and your family, get to know you more and gain more understanding of what we can achieve for you. You will be able to see, feel and touch samples of custom portraits that we have previously produced in anticipation for what you might love. Then, we will schedule your session at the earliest possible convenience. A session retainer is due at this time. However, you are not obligated to pay for any image or product until you see your images at the ordering appointment. We want to make sure you get only images you absolutely love.
Do you offer digital images?
Abso-always-lutely, We often provide digital images for archival purposes with some of our collections. Digital images may also be purchased a la carte.
Is there a perfect time of day for my session?
Yes! If you are having an outdoors session. we usually love to photograph during the magic hour. It's the 1-2 hours before the sun sets. It casts this dreamy glow on everything and will illuminate you very nicely. It also helps to eliminate harsh shadows that the sun casts down when it's higher in the sky as well. All indoors session have a more flexible time frame.
Will you travel?
Again, abso-always-lutely, yes, we will travel! We usually travel within 30 miles. However, we are happy to travel beyond that for an additional charge of $1 per mile.
- How does booking a newborn session work?
Because those precious gifts sometimes like to give surprises in the nicest ways, we will reserve a tentative date for you around your scheduled due date and will expect a call or email from your designated contact person as soon as baby arrives. Newborn sessions are done, ideally, within the first 14 days after birth. They are still very snuggly and sleepy; and we can better pose them in the cutest possible ways. We do love to celebrate motherhood and new birth, as a result, you get a complimentary newborn session when you book a maternity session with us and vice versa.
You took so many pictures! Do I get all of them? Do I get the RAW images?
You will hear my camera clicking A LOT! Capturing perfect moments require that, you just never know when it will come along. We patiently have our editor rate each images on our excellence scale and choose the “bestest” ones. After that, we carefully retouch and enhance them before delivering to you. We ensure you only receive the best from us.
