Full service means that I will be there to help with everything from beginning to end. Starting with an emailed questionnaire to plan your perfect session and give you tips on how to get the most out of your session. I'm even available for you to send me photos of outfits if you are unsure what will look the best. After your session I will send you an email and we will schedule your reveal session for 1-2 weeks after the session date. During your reveal session we will get together at your home or via zoom where you will be able to view your images, select your favorites and place your order. I'll be there to help you decide which products/sizes will look best in your home. Then I'll personally deliver your beautiful portraits to you at your home if you're local.
Do the sessions come with a cd of all the images?
Because I'm a full service studio, I do not include a cd of images with your session. I find that most of the time when people get a cd of images they typically just sit on the cd in a drawer collecting dust. I want you to proudly display your portraits in your home for years to come and then be able to pass them down to your children one day. All of my sessions do include a custom photo app of all ordered poses and I do offer digital files with a print release in all of my collections.
What is a custom photo App?
The custom photo app is included with all sessions. It is an app just like any other app that you can save to your smart phone or other mobile device. Inside the app will be all of the images that you ordered from. You are also able to contact me from the app and share it with as many friends and family as you wish! Instead of searching facebook to show your images with someone in person you can just pull out your phone and they're all right there! I will share the photo app with you when I deliver your portraits.
What kinds of props do you have available?
I have so many props and I'm always adding more! I offer many wraps, outfits, headbands, bonnets, hats, ties, tutus, and blankets, for newborn-1 year. I also have some tutus and other props available for older children. If you would like to check out the many different props I offer just schedule your complimentary in-person consultation and I can show you what I have to offer. :)
Do you offer any kind of referral credit if I refer a friend/family member?
Yes! For EVERY person that you refer to me that books a session you will be gifted a $50 credit to use towards future sessions! And the best part, there is no limit how much you can earn! So start sending those referrals, be sure to tell them to let me know you sent them.
When is the best time to schedule my maternity session?
Right around 30 weeks is ideal. The goal is a nice round belly while you are still feeling great and not too swollen or uncomfortable. Moms of multiples should schedule a few weeks earlier.
Do you have maternity dresses for me to wear?
Yes, I do! I currently have 8 maternity dresses in tan, cream boho, dark gray, deep purple, merlot red, blue floral and 2 in olive green.
When should I contact you to schedule my newborn session?
The earlier the better! Most mom's schedule during their second trimester.
How do I schedule a newborn session BEFORE the baby arrives??
No worries, I will put your due date on my calendar and ask you will contact me as soon as baby arrives and we will confirm your official session date/time.
When does the newborn session take place?
Newborn sessions are best done within the first 2 weeks of life. Preferably during days 10-14 days. Of course, I will always accommodate babies who need to stay in the hospital a bit longer. I can just never guarantee any specific poses.
How long does the newborn session last?
Newbornsessions typically last 2-4 hours depending on your baby's cooperation. I know it sounds long, but while I'm tending to your baby's every need you get to relax. And you wouldn't be the first one if you decided to get some much needed zzz's. There are also a few great parks, restaurants, and shops within just a few blocks if you decide you'd like to get some fresh air.
Do older siblings stay at the newborn session the entire time?
If you are bringing older siblings for sibling and/or family portraits, I'd recommend that you have Dad or a family/friend take them after they are done. We will start with the family/sibling portraits and those shouldn't last more than an hour.
