What should I expect on the shoot?
You should expect to enjoy yourselves and have a good time. It is very important that my clients are comfortable on the shoot because this is when I capture the best images. Please do not coach your children before the shoot and tell them to “smile for the camera”. Fake-posed smiles are so uninteresting and obvious. It’s better to have real energy oozing from the images! Let your child just have fun! We will get much better results that way!
How far in advance should I book my appointment?
About three weeks, but it’s always good to check with me if you need photos sooner. How soon will I see proofs from my session? I will send you a preview of your images within 2-3 weeks of your session. Each image from the session is carefully selected and edited by the photographer (me!).
What should I wear to the session?
Styling is an important element, however I do not recommend any type of formal clothing. It’s important your children feel free and comfortable. That is when I will capture the best shots. Casual is great! But feel free to accessorize and add COLOR!
Do you have locations suggestions for my session?
Yes, I’m happy to suggest locations (in addition to your home). During the spring and summer months I am frequently available in the Hamptons, which makes for a spectacular backdrop for all portraits, in addition to New York City.
How long is a typical portrait session?
Portrait sessions usually last around one and a half to two hours, but there is no set time limit. We will continue our session until I’m sure we have phenomenal images!
What does the session fee include?
The session fee is a non-refundable fee that covers my time, all the required equipment, access to a private online gallery of your images, in addition to my time and creative effort editing the best images. The session fee does not include any prints or digital files. Prints and digital images may be purchased as part of one of packages offered .
Do you have a referral program?
Yes! If you refer me to a friend you will receive 25% off your next photo session and images! Please make sure the friend mentions your name at the time of booking.
What if it rains and we are scheduled for an outdoor shoot?
We will reschedule at a time that is convenient for both parties.
