Thank you for your interest in a photo session! I would love to work together to provide you with cherished portraits of your family. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about booking a session.
The first thing to decide about your session is which location you’d like. Different locations have good light at different times of day and vary greatly depending on the time of year. I'd love to send you a list of available times and dates, along with some location suggestions that work for different time slots to get us just the right light for your session. I book most sessions on Friday and Saturday afternoons/evenings. I am closed on Sundays.
Sessions typically last anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour and a half depending on a variety of factors, such as the weather, the age of your children, the location, etc. Please come dressed appropriately for the weather and plan to stay awhile. Also, it's very important to let your children know that this is going to be FUN! I know how stressful is to get an entire family looking good and out the door! But please remember that your kiddos will pick up on how you feel and if you're excited and looking forward to having some fun, then they will be too and we'll be able to capture your family at their best. Please feel free to bring snacks and favorite toys, and deploy any strategies that put your kids in the best mood possible. :D I'll be bringing my best tricks with me as well.
If you'd like to book a session, I will send you an invoice for The Baby Package (the minimum purchase required, but you can upgrade any time to a larger package), which can be paid online via PayPal, debit, credit card, or by check if you prefer. Your session will not be booked until the balance of The Baby Package has been paid. Once The Baby Package has been paid for, you will be officially booked for your date and time. This payment is non-refundable, and is transferable one time only if rescheduling is necessary. (Rescheduling due to inclement weather is not counted.)
Some policies to keep in mind please:
I do not allow others to take photos during our session. I will be the sole photographer.
I retain ownership of the images created during our session. Unless otherwise requested by you, I have permission to use the images in my portfolio. With respect for your privacy, no names will be revealed (unless you choose to tag yourself on facebook, which you absolutely have permission to do, as well as using any posted images as your profile picture. Please leave the tag in place and do not crop or otherwise alter the image(s).)
Please do not screen-shot or in any other way steal images from your gallery.
You only have permission to print and post online the images that you pay for/are included in your package.
Galleries are open for ordering for 2 weeks. After that there is a $15 late fee applied to re-open your gallery.
Thank you for choosing me as your family photographer. I greatly appreciate your business. If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to ask!
