HOW DO I SCHEDULE A SESSION WHEN I DON'T KNOW WHEN BABY WILL BE HERE?
This is a great question. As we know, babies come on their own time which makes a concrete date impossible. We set a date about 10-14 days after your expected due date. This is the ideal time frame to photograph newborns. This tentative day will place you on the calendar to assure no overbooking. Through email and phone communication, we stay in touch on how your pregnancy is progressing. Once your baby actually arrives, we review our original date to see if we need to make any adjustments.
WHEN SHOULD I SCHEDULE MY MATERNITY SESSION?
Booking your maternity session around 28- 35 week is ideal. This timeframe assures mommy has developed that baby bump but is not so far along in the pregnancy that she is uncomfortable during her session. We want mommies to feel their best during the session and love capturing those bumps.
WHEN SHOULD I SCHEDULE MY MILESTONE SESSION?
This can depend on what type of session you're planning to book. The best times frame for our 6 month "sitter" sessions can be different for each child as each reaches that sitting milestone at a different pace. We set a tentative date and adjusted if needed once we approach 6 months. As for our 1 year sessions we recommend one month prior to their first birthday or the date of your planned celebration. This allows time for viewing, editing, and any product orders.
WHAT IS LITTLE SPROUTLINGS BABY PLAN?
We just love our Little Sproutlings around the studio! This is a year long photographic celebration for your little one. With this plan we will be capturing your little one at their 6 month "sitter" milestone, 1 year session, and wrap up their toddler years with a complementary family session in year 2. We have exclusive product available to our baby planners and have lots of fun photographing these memories.
WHAT WILL WE WEAR?
This can feel like one of the biggest challenges when preparing for portrait photography. Don't worry we have you covered. In our studio closet you can find a wide selections of maternity gown, outfit choices for your newborn and toddler, as well as a resource guide on picking out the right outfits for the family.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS & HOW MANY WILL I GET ?
About 3-4 weeks after your session takes place is when you can expect to have your portraits or product in hand. We pride ourselves on having unique products which does take design time. We do recommend booking early to assure availability and time if your photos are needed by a certain day. We have several package option most choosing to customize their need with our "Create A Collection". Our investments start at $495 with options of paring digital files along with a signature art piece.
WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL/RESCHEDULE MY APPOINTMENT?
Cancellations must be made 72 hrs prior to your session date. All cancellations made within 72 hrs forfeits their retainer. When rescheduling with more than 72 hours notice, the retainer you paid may be applied toward your rescheduled session date. If the session is not rebooked within 6 months, the retainer is forfeited. Client agrees to be on time to the scheduled session. Any clients that is 30 minutes or more late to their appointment time will have to be reschedule and forfeit their original session fee. An additional fee of half their original session fee will be charged to reschedule the session.
