Frequently Asked Questions
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY FAMILY SESSION?
Family sessions take place outside, between May & October.
For fall color pictures, end of September and early October are best.
I recommend booking your session 1-2 months in advance. Fall family sessions fill fast, and many clients book their session in late summer to assure they can get on my calendar.
HOW LONG DOES A FAMILY SESSION LAST?
Family sessions last about an hour. Depending on ages of family members, the session might be shorter or longer.
WHERE DO FAMILY SESSIONS TAKE PLACE?
Family sessions take place in the Northfield area. I have found perfect locations that have great backdrop options, easy to access, and don’t have kid distractions like playgrounds.
Sessions can also take place at locations special to you. Just let me know what you are thinking. Depending on distance, a small travel fee may apply.
HOW DO I PREPARE MY FAMILY FOR THE SESSION?
Once your session is booked, I will send you a detailed what to expect guide for your session. It will include tips for clothing, ways to encourage kid copperation, and a general outline of what you can expect to happen at the session.
CAN THE SESSION INCLUDE EXTENDED FAMILY?
Sure! I love when grandparents coem to sessions.
Having additional people at the session will limit the varity of poses we are able to fit into your session.
DO YOU OFFER PRINTS?
Yes! I always encourage my clients to invest in printed products. I know we live in a digital world, but there is nothing better than pictures of your family hanging on your wall, beautiful albums, and prints. I work with top printing labs from across the country to offer stunning ways to display your family pictures.
DO YOU OFFER DIGITAL IMAGES?
Yes. I know prints and products are not a good match for everyone. Digital images are included with every photography session packages.
WHEN WILL OUR PICTURES BE READY?
You will be invited back to the studio 1-2 weeks after your session for your viewing and ordering appointment. This is when you will see your final images. I will also guide you through the selection process as you choose your favorite images and decide on what products or collections best fit your needs.
If coming back to the session isn’t a good option for your family, I do offer online gallery viewings too.
WHEN WILL MY PRINTS / WALL ART / ALBUMS & DIGITALS BE READY?
Your digital images will be ready for you on the day of your viewing and ordering appointment.
Orders of prints, wall art, canvas wraps, keepsake boxes, and albums can take 1-2 weeks depending on production times for each item. I promise, I will get your items to you as soon as possible.
