FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions
This FAQ addresses some common questions and concerns that you may have related to your photography session experience. I am here to make you feel like family during our time together, and create a comfortable, safe experience for all. If you have any further questions not answered in this FAQ, please feel free to send me a message here.
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
I am located in Union County New Jersey, but I travel and service surrounding areas.
WHEN DO MATERNITY SESSIONS TAKE PLACE?
You should book your Maternity session to take place between 30-36 weeks. However, as every mom has a different experience with their pregnancy, this timeline can be flexible.
DO I HAVE TO BUY OR BRING DRESSES FOR MY SESSION?
You don’t have to buy anything! I provide an extensive wardrobe for moms and young children. As a result, you don’t have to worry about spending hundreds on gowns, bodysuits, fabrics, and accessories. I have you covered! Anything you see in my maternity gallery is from my client closet!
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY NEWBORN SESSION?
You should book your newborn session during your second trimester to ensure availability. Once you book your session, your due date is added to my calendar and we determine a day once baby arrives.
WHEN DO NEWBORN SESSIONS TAKE PLACE?
Newborn sessions typically take place when baby is between 10-14 days old. During this time, your baby is more flexible and sleepy. For preemies, we work with their adjusted age for the appropriate timeframe. Newborn sessions start early morning when babies are at their best and not overly stimulated from the day.
HOW LONG DOES A NEWBORN SESSION LAST?
Newborn sessions can take up to four hours. Between soothing, feeding and creating the perfect setups for baby and family, please plan to spend a majority of your day with me!
DO I NEED TO PROVIDE ANY PROPS OR OUTFITS FOR MY NEWBORN SESSION?
I provide all of the props and outfits you will need for your newborn session. If you have a special heirloom piece you would like to incorporate, feel free to discuss with me so we can plan this detail together. Prior to the session, we will have a consultation to discuss color, themes, and outfits.
I HATE THE WAY I LOOK IN PHOTOS.
Please rely on my expertise to guide you through our session. I promise you will love the way you look and feel!
IS HAIR AND MAKEUP INCLUDED?
Although I do not include hair and makeup in the session fee, I can make recommendations to you.
WHAT DOES IT COST?
Your investment depends on the type of products and collection you want. On average my clients will invest anywhere between $1600 -$6000+ on their custom session. Your fine art products are all made in Italy, and include fine art matted prints, folio boxes, and wall art.
DO I HAVE TO HAVE A REVEAL & ORDERING APPOINTMENT TO SEE MY PHOTOS?
Your reveal and ordering appointment is when you see your images for the first time! This is also where I help guide you in choosing your favorite images. Any additional images or wall art can also be purchased at this time. As my service is designed to help you through every step of the process, I do not offer online viewing galleries.
CAN I CHANGE OR CANCEL MY ORDER?
After payment is made, it is not possible to alter or reduce your order. Design changes to a product may be made within 24 hours if the product has not entered the production phase. Since my service is customized to every client and products are custom ordered, all sales are final. Please note that any form of chargeback on payments made will be treated as fraud and dealt with accordingly through legal means.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS?
Your final edited images take three to four weeks to complete. As your physical artwork is coming from Italy, it can take up to 4 weeks to arrive after digital edits are complete.
CAN I PURCHASE RAW UNEDITED IMAGES?
Raw or unedited images are not available for purchase. There is no exception to this.
