How far in advance should I book my session?
My schedule fills up super fast so I recommend booking at least 3-6 months in advance.
Do you photograph newborns?
My business is so busy with families and seniors that I don’t have much time in my schedule for newborn sessions. I will however photograph an existing client’s newborn.
Do you help with posing?
Of course! For seniors this is especially important. I will guide and direct you so please don’t be nervous! For families, I will often start with a pose and then direct the pose into something more interactive.
What time of day is best to schedule our session?
If shooting outdoors, the best light is right after sunrise or 90 minutes before sunset. Overcast days allow us much more flexibility with light. Indoor sessions are best if scheduled before 3pm.
Where should our session take place?
Your session can take place almost anywhere within 30 miles of Westfield (and further for a travel fee) but I can always give suggestions. Often, clients will use their own home, back yard or nearby park. When you book your session, you will receive information on what to wear and location recommendations.
How do we handle inclement weather for our session?
Sessions may have to be rescheduled due to dark skies, rain or other hazardous weather conditions.
Will you touch up blemishes in my photos?
Absolutely. Once you select the photos you wish to purchase, they will be fully edited and retouched.
Where should I print my photos?
Mpix.com is hands down the best consumer photo lab and happens to be owned by a professional lab. I will upload your photos to their website to save you the hassle. Please do not print at kiosks and labs like Walgreens, Walmart, Shutterfly, etc. as the results will not be professional. It’s literally only pennies more per print to use Mpix.
Do you have any other tips that might be helpful to prepare for our family photo session?
I sure do! In fact, I have a two part blog post dedicated to this topic. Go to my blog and read my tips for a successful family photo session.
