Maternity: Sessions are ideally scheduled around 34-35 weeks, give or take a week.

Birthdays: Parents are usually in charge of purchasing outfits, balloons and cakes. This way, you can get the outfit, try it on for size and iron it before the session.

Custom backdrops, props & outfits can take up to 4 weeks+ for production and delivery. Please make your session appointment as soon as you can to allow ample time for the styling and delivery process.

SENIOR PACKAGES

Senior Sessions are customarily done the summer before senior year but can be done anytime during senior year and can be split up into multiple sessions throughout the year. Fall is a lovely time for the full sessions but there is a chance you might miss submitting the senior ad to the yearbook.

Studio Drape or Tuxedo Shot: I have the female drape but not guys’ tuxedos

Add-On mini sessions or a Series of Mini Sessions: You can do a series of mini sessions throughout the year for different looks, starting the summer before senior year. You may wish to do a mini session with the beautiful Autumn foliage or in the Spring to model selected college spiritwear, finished letterman jackets, or just one more pretty spring outfit. These are really cute photos for your announcements or “Thank You” cards.

Mini Sessions are ~20 min, 1 look and 1 location. Full Sessions are ~45 min, 2-3 looks and 1 location.

    FAQs

    • Do you want an outdoor sessions and have children under 6?: Littles are usually best in the mornings with comfortable temps. May and October are best for this, give or take...might get away with late April, early June, and late September. If you need a weekend, the "perfect" time is limited to approximately 14 appointment times. Please plan ahead.
    • Weather: If inclement weather occurs, more than 40% chance of rain or uncomfortable temperatures (less than 55 degrees or more than 85 degrees), I will offer any open dates/times to you for rescheduling or we can move into the studio. In some cases, your session time could change depending on weather and sunlight. I will confirm your appt. before and discuss any weather issues or possible time changes.
    • More on Weather: Temps between 60 and 80 are ideal. Can go as low as 50 if it is only adults. Winds no higher than 8mph are ideal. I enjoy shooting on cloudy AND sunny days. They have different feels to them but I don't reschedule due to cloud cover.
    • Outdoor VS. Studio: Just a quick comment on this... outdoor sessions are inflexible in scheduling....we are relying on ideal temperatures, blooms, and wind speeds. I only schedule outdoor sessions once/day (magic hour.... just after sunrise or just before sunset). When babies or toddlers are involved, magic hour could be after their bedtime or in the morning when the temps are still much too frigid. Rescheduling due to weather issues is a common occurrence. If your schedule isn't very flexible, sometimes it is hard to reschedule for an ideal time. I love doing outdoor sessions but they can be difficult to nail down. Studio is a very comfortable & reliable type of session and there are always beautiful results. 
    • Portrait sessions are all-inclusive and do not require any additional purchase. The digital images provided are 1800x1200.
    • I have back up equipment
    • I am insured
    • Retainers: Required to secure your date & time. 24 notice is required to avoid losing your retainer. Bad weather and illness happen. We will work together to find a suitable new time for your session or move indoors.
    • The number of proofs from your session will depend on what we are shooting, how many people, how much fun everyone is having, our specific goals, etc.
    • When the littles don't cooperate: Sometimes they won't smile no matter what I do. This is part of the nature of children.
