Studio Policies & Procedures
A $150 non-refundable session retainer via PayPal ($400 for bundles) is required at booking in order to hold space on our calendar for around the time of your due date. The remaining balance is due in full on or prior to your session (exact cash or PayPal - no checks please).
A prep guide will be emailed to you so that you know exactly what to expect & how to plan for your session. I recommend reviewing the guide with your spouse so that they understand how the session will be conducted. A questionnaire will also be sent so that I can get an idea of your likes/dislikes, color preferences, etc.
Finished images will be posted to an online proofing gallery within 3 weeks following your session date & after full payment of remaining balance is received - the editing process will not begin until final payment is received. If you need your images to be completed more quickly, a $75 fee will apply to rush edit your images within 3 business days.
Your online gallery will be accessible for 7 days - Please make your image selections and complete any add-on digital image/product purchases (if desired) during this time. A $25 fee will be charged to reopen a closed gallery for an additional 3 days, if needed.
Add-On Digital Image Pricing
Extra digital images are $25 per extra image, $100 for 5 extra images or $200 for all images and can be purchased directly from your online proofing gallery.
Newborn sessions are typically scheduled on weekday mornings at 9:30 am - Please be prepared to plan accordingly. Our weekends fill up very quickly with baby & maternity sessions, therefore, a weekend appointment cannot be guaranteed.
Under no circumstances will unedited images be released to the client. No exceptions. You will be shown ALL of the very best images from your session. It does not benefit anyone to withhold beautiful images from you, so please trust the photographers knowledge & experience in choosing the final images.
In order to protect the many newborn babies that we come in contact with, we ask that you (or your little one) do not come to your session coughing/sneezing/running nose/feverish/etc. We are more than happy to reschedule your session due to illness.
Please respect the photographers time by showing up to your session on time. If you are more than 20 minutes late, we reserve the right to cancel the session and a new retainer will be required to reschedule.
