What should we wear?
Often clients ask me what should we wear for our session. First please do not all wear the same color, instead pull colors from one outfit to the next. Having clothes from the same or complimentary color scheme helps pull everyone together. I like blues, grays, greens, light browns ect.
Newborn family portraits are best simple and classic. White tanks and jeans.
Have fun with some accessories like belts, scarves, headband, hats ect. Bringing in different textures like ruffles and layering is fantastic too. Pay attention to details when choosing clothes and a fun pair of shoes can set an outfit apart.
Let your personality come out and feel good in your clothes..that is the most important thing.
Because you are investing in these portraits and they will be displayed in your home I suggest you take some time to plan your clothing. I am happy to help anytime.
How far will you travel?
I will travel anywhere you would like me to! Any travel farther than 30 miles from zip code 53066 will be subject to an additional fee for gas and time.
How long is my session?
Children and Family sessions typically last 45-60 minutes.
Newborn session typically last 2 hours to allow for feeding and snuggle time.
How much should I plan to spend?
Custom photography is much more time intensive and specialized than chain photography. A professional photographer spends 10-15 hours on each session. From the very first email to your pre session consultation all the way to packaging your beautiful portraits to them getting in your hands is a custom process tailored to you. Each image in your gallery is edited one at a time taking special care of the color and final edit. Also your portraits are printed at a professional lab printed to last a lifetime and are not 19 cent quality you get from chain stores. That is why my clients typically spend $800 to $3000 on custom portraits. I do have a minimum order requirement of $300 with each session and $500 with extended/large family sessions.
Do I need a pre session consultation?
Yes please. I find this to be a very important step in your photography experience. It allows you to get to know me and it allows me to get to know you and what you want out of your session. We get to talk about clothing, location, your children and exactly what to expect. It really is a great opportunity to ensure you get exactly what you are looking for. If you do not have time to meet I am happy to talk on the phone with you too!
When is my session fee due and is it refundable?
Your session fee is due as soon as you book your session. I only take on a limited number of session per month to ensure my clients get my full attention. Therefore, once you are on my calendar I am booked and may have to turn away another family. Therefore the session fee in non refundable.
What if my child or family member is sick?
Please let me know as soon as possible and we can reschedule. I will also reschedule due to weather.
