Do you photograph on location or in a studio?

For your maternity photography you can choose to be photographed at the location of your choice or at my studio. My studio is very cosy and functional.

A baby and baby plus family session can be done either in our amazing studio or at the comfort of your own home.

 

Do you edit all of our photographs?

Yes, I edit all the photos one by one, individually.

 

Do we get digital files of our photos?

With every print purchased, I will provide the complimentary matching digital file plus a print release

 

Can we order prints?

Products are sold separately with images starting at $150 and packages starting at $450. With every print purchased, I will provide the complimentary matching digital file plus a print release. What you fall in love with and wish to purchase will be entirely up to you!

 

Why your print prices are higher than at Costco or Walmart?

When you buy a print, you buy not only the print but photographer's artistic piece. I treat each image as a piece of art from the start. I work on creating it during the photosession using skills of knowing light and gear, I continue working on it editing your images.

As well as I use the services of professional labs only. Where the prints and products are processed at the professional equipment using the best paper, canvas and archival inks which preserve your images from fading out. They actually have the certificates which guarantees the products live and beautiful colors at least one hundred years (if you treat them properly of course). I hope that explains the price of the professional service. I wouldn't say it’s expensive I would say it’s very affordable for the quality and guarantee you are getting in exchange.

 

Do you pose people?

Yes and no. And as you can see from my portfolio I try to create natural images. I usually slightly pose family or kids and then I ask them to do something funny or silly. That is my secret to beautiful but natural photos. I deliberately use a bit of posing, light and my professional skills to make you shine brighter on your photos and create stunning portraits for you and your family.

 

Can we get a print release or copyright?

Copyright defines the creator of the images, the photographer. So it actually means that I created those images and I own them and this right cannot be granted or sold.

With every print purchased, I will provide the complimentary matching digital file plus a print release

  

Do we have to sign an agreement?

The agreement is created to protect your interests as a client and mine as a photographer. I do require a signed agreement at the time of booking as well as a booking fee (retainer).

 

What is the payment schedule for a family photo session?

At the time of booking I require the signed agreement and the retainer ($100) which guarantees and secures the date of your photo session. The retainer is non-refundable, but transferable. If you are unable to come to a session and the notice is sent to me 48 hours prior to the session we can reschedule the date and transfer the retainer towards a new date.

 

We need to cancel our session can we get the retainer back?

The retainer is a non-refundable booking fee. The retainer guarantees that I booked the time of the session exclusively for you and I turn down all other inquiries and commissions for that session time.

But if you cannot make it to the session you are able to reschedule your session and transfer the retainer towards the new time. The only requirement is to send me a note about rescheduling, no later than 48 hours prior to the session.

 

Maternity

When it’s the best time to book a session?

The best time for your session is between week 30-36. At this time your belly is nice and round but you still fill yourself amazing and not as tired as at the last weeks of pregnancy.

But if you are at your later weeks already I will be more than glad to create beautiful memories for you. Just give me a call and we will book it as soon as my calendar allows.

 

What should I wear for the session?

It depends of what kind of images you would like to get. You can wear something more fascinating or more casual. Try to stay away from the busy prints or stripes, in the photo it could draw attention from your belly or your face and we don’t want that.

 

Do you provide those gorgeous dresses and fabrics or do we need to bring them over?

I have all those dresses at the studio for you. Please let me know at the time of booking that you want the photos in the maternity gowns or fabrics so I can do all the necessary preparations befor your session.

 

Newborn

When it’s the best time to book a session?

If you are looking for the sleeping posed baby photos you want to book the date when the baby is up to 10 days old.

I will be more than happy to photograph older babies, but when they are older they are also more alert to the world around them and it might be a challenge to get the posed sleepy photographs done. But we still can get lots and lots of amazing cuddling lifestyle images for you.

 

Can we bring siblings for a session?

Definitely.  More people and more set ups may require additional time and additional fee but brothers, sisters, parents and grandparents are more than welcome at the session.

Please make sure to let me know at the time of booking who is going to be at the session so we can discuss the details.

 

Do you have lots of experience in photographing newborns?

I do. And I understand how you could feel trusting someone to hold your baby, wrap him/her and pose him/her. But let me to tell you that I’m a mom too and totally understand you. That’s why you are going to be right there at the session with me assisting me during all the posing and photographing.



I hope you got most of the answers on your questions.

If I seem like a photographer for you just send me a note so we can book the most suitable time for you and your little one.
