Your session will last about an hour. Newborn sessions have been known to last up to two to three hours. We take lots of breaks for feedings, changing and getting the baby to fall asleep.
How long will the session take?
Our normal business hours are Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 4PM. We understand that schedules can get pretty hectic so we have some other options. There is usually one day a week when we can do sessions and appointments later in the evening to accommodate you. Saturday appointments are available or an additional fee, and need to be booked about a month in advance.
Can I have my session on the weekend? In the evening?
At the time you schedule your appointment, we collect the session fee. On the day you order, 50% is due and the remaining 50% when you pick up your order. Orders are usually finished and ready in approximately 3 weeks.
We have an a la carte system so that you may create your own grouping of portraits, albums and collages. This works great as we reward our clients with fun items along the way.
How much are your packages?
We have clients that spend between $350-$2000, we can work with any budget.
How much can I expect to spend?
Now this is an important question, specifically for newborn portraits. It is very important that the newborn portraits are done under 2 weeks, 1 week is even better! For maternity portraits we usually like to do those between 7 and 8 months. If your further along, dont worry! We have even done maternity portraits at the hospital hours before a C-section!
Whats the best time to schedule my maternity & newborn portraits?
Dont worry! We have all the latest retouching tooks that can fix it. Theres not even a charge for it. No charge items are things such as: blemishes, wrinkles, flaky skin. Major edits to have additional charges: Facesswitching, background replacement or severe rashes.
My child has a scratch on his face, what can I do?
Of course! There is no charge to bring family members.
I have a newborn session, can I bring the grandparents?
Once you place your initial order at the studio, we can put your portraits online for reorder purposes. Its the greatest way for your friends and family to view and order their own portraits.
After your session, we will schedule you to come back into the studio with a week. We have an amazing projector where you view your beautiful images like a movie, the only thing thats missing is the popcorn! We will walk you through the ordering process; explaining our products, creating collages, or just simply sharing our expertise.
What is an order presentation?
Not at all, we understand with kids things come up. We just ask that you let us know as soon as possible.
I have to reschedule, is that a problem?
We will schedule an order presentation about a week after you take the portraits. At that time you will place your order and then the portraits are ready for pickup 2 to 3 weeks. Some items such as frames and albums have different delivery times so please inquire if there is a specific item you are curious about.
When will the portraits be ready?
