I try to keep some flexibilty in my schedule to accomodate newborns, illness, and rain days. In order to keep that flexibility I have to book sessions accordingly. I would suggest booking 4-6 weeks ahead of time between January and August, and 8-12 weeks between September and December as the fall months are always the busiest! I do have many annual clients that secure their spot the year prior. If you like to keep a similar weekend each year let me know. If you are hoping to get images for holiday cards, please note that I take my last session the weekend prior to Thanksgiving.
I can not hold dates for you once provided, so please try to confirm your session date as soon as you can. I do not require a deposit for most sessions. However, I will require a deposit for weddings, special events, and special mini/promo sessions.
Glasses – If you wear glasses or have transition lenses you may want to consider popping out the lenses or having them removed for the session. I always do my best to avoid glare but its not always possible with the movement of little ones, reflection, etc. With transition lenses I can try to lighten/correct them but it will be at an additional cost and it is not always possible.
Shoes – Depending on the time of day, or weather it is always possible we will be stepping through wet grass at the very least. Please be mindful of shoes that are not waterproof or may damage, heels that may sink, etc.
White jeans/clothes – I love white jeans!! I always try to bring a mat, towel, or blanket with me to avoid any staining or possible dampness from the ground but many times the image would look best without them. If you have small kids, I will most definitely have them up on your laps, or cuddled in at times throughout the shoot. Be aware that muddy feet can leave marks! I can always edit out mud, I just don’t want you to be upset with me if we all end up a little bit dirtier when we leave then we did when we started 😁.
Bribes – I am all about a good bribe when needed! A couple tips though… if it is candy, please try not to make it chocolate or gum if at all possible. Chocolate inevitably ends up everywhere and gum usually shows up in their cheeks or teeth. Same goes for anything that may turn their teeth colors. Think things like Smarties or puffs.
Payment is due in full at time of session. All payment types are accepted. If you would like to use a credit card a 4% fee will be added on.
If you choose to purchase additional digital files ouside of your package, purchase prints, ect payment can be made via Venmo, Chase Pay, Zelle, or check.
