Inclement weather is considered to be rain, snow, or extreme heat and cold (over 95 or under 40 respectively at session time) with the exception of shortened winter sessions in which we expect colder temperatures but will use our best judgment based on the age of the subjects involved.
If we do cancel a session for inclement weather we'll reschedule your family for the soonest available date that works with your schedule. If an immediate reschedule is not possible your initial payment will go on file as a credit to be used within 6 months of the originally scheduled session date.
We keep a low reschedule fee because we know busy lives are bound to need a reschedule once in a while. Sick kids, work calls, outfits didn't arrive in time; you name it, we totally understand! It's just a $35 fee to reschedule your session for another day/time or $50 if it's less than 24 hours notice.
Your proofs will be delivered via email within 10 business days of your session. During this time I'm uploading the images, culling for the best ones, editing, prepping some for social media and creating your gallery. Proof galleries will have images fully edited with the exception of anything we need to zoom in to correct such as a scratch on the cheek or a bruise on the knee. We'll touch these last minute details if you choose these images as part of your package.
Once you view your proofs we ask our awesome clients to please choose your favorites right away so that we can make those images available for instant download for you.
Your portrait session will include a pre-determined number of images that are included with your package. Most of the time this is 8 images for a sunset session and 5 images for a studio or newborn session with the exception of minis. Your proofs gallery however will include all the best images from your session for you to choose from. Every session is a unique experience so the number of images in your gallery will vary greatly depending on how many subjects were photographed, their ages, if they hammed it up for the camera or were a bit shy/fussy.
If you’d like to order beyond what the package includes please feel free. Once we receive the selection we will email an invoice for $20+tax per additional image chosen. In your proofs email you'll also see an option called "I Want Them All" which gives one flat price to download everything you see in your gallery.
Your gallery will be synced to the Mpix.com website so that you can order prints of your chosen images and they'll be delivered right to your door. If you have Mpix coupon codes to use please download your high-res images from your gallery and upload to the Mpix site directly.
When I edit photos I calibrate my monitor with Mpix's settings so please use www.mpix.com to print your photos with the absolute best quality and coloring. Their low prices, great customer service and easy to create products are a great bonus too!
Working with children and newborns has taught us to be extremely flexible. They run the show. If baby is feeling very fussy that day and we are not able to get sufficient photos for your gallery we may ask you to come back a day or two later for a reshoot. If for any reason a reshoot cannot happen we will provide a full refund. Stress free options for our beautiful new mommies 🙂
Yes of course! We love our sunset newborn sessions and they're a great option if baby has toddler age siblings who may need some freedom to run about. This is a session for the entire family to take part in since baby will need to be held a majority of the time.
Sunset newborn sessions are the same price as studio newborn sessions and take place weekday sunsets with a tentative date assigned based on baby's due date. Please email me for full info.
