Here are a few of the common questions that we get related to our Photography services. We will add to this list when we get more FAQs. Contact us if any of your questions are not answered here.
Where are you located?
I am located in Middletown, MD but cover areas throughout MD, VA, WV, and PA. There will be a small fee for anything over 30 miles from 21769.
How long are your sessions?
Family, maternity, 45 mins to 60 minutes, milestone sessions 35-45 mins. Newborn sessions are anywhere from 3-4 hours. Weddings are based on packages.
How long will it take to see the pictures?
My processing time is 2-4 weeks, however I will several pictures on the site for you to preview as soon as the next day. If you need the entire gallery sooner you can pay $100 fee to have it expedited.
What do I need to know for a newborn session?
This session takes place between 5-12 days of birth and is a 3-4-hour session. All sessions take place either in the hospital or in the comfort of your home. We have a portable studio so there is no need to take your newborn out of their comfort zone.
When is the best time to book a maternity session?
The best time to schedule this session is around 28-34 weeks, that is when your belly is nice & round. Some carry smaller than others and want to wait till 36-38 weeks. The most important thing is having mom-to be comfortable.
If you are expecting, please make sure you call is at least 2 weeks in advance to get this session into my calendar.
What location & time works best?
For outdoor work I usually shoot early AM before the sun gets too harsh, or 1-2 hours before sunset. Beach or park locations are always my first suggestion. For both indoors and out we will discuss the best stylized session for your needs.
What should we wear?
Wardrobe is very important. A variety of different colors, or keeping it very simple with neutral earth tones is what I prefer. I ask my clients to please contact me first to discuss what you and your family will be wearing before the session. For maternity, I would suggest you wear something fitted with not too many patterns. I also provide some maternity pieces if you are interested. Please contact me with questions.
Do I have to pay anything before my session?
Yes, a non-refundable deposit is due to reserve your session date or expected due date if newborn session. The remaining balance is due at time of session.
How many people are allowed in the session?
Family photo sessions are up to 12, unless special arrangements are made in advance, and pets are always welcome.
How long does my gallery stay online?
Your gallery will remain online for 30 days allowing you to place orders. The gallery can be extended if need be.
Do you have a referral program?
Yes, if you refer a friend you will receive a 25.00 print credit that you can use on your next full session.
New clients must be booked and paid in order for you to use the credit or credits can be applied to a session
