Family portrait session questions

I get a lot of questions as people are considering family portraits. Here are some of the most common family portrait session questions that I receive as a photographer.

How do I book my family portraits session?
     You can book a session by filling out the request form on the Contact page or calling me. We will work together to find a time and location for the photo session.​

Do you offer weekend sessions?

     Yes, I offer weekend sessions because I understand that weekends are often the most convenient time.​

What forms of payment do you accept?

     I accept cash, check or Credit card.​

When is payment due?

     Payment is due at the time of booking once we have set a date and location.​

What should we wear to our family session?

     First, I recommend coordinating the clothes by picking one outfit then choosing others to complement the first.  Solid colors work the best.  Once you have chosen the first outfit, chose outfits for additional family members that are all the same color, or outfits that match intensity of color (all pastels, bright colors, or neutral colors). 

     Secondly, I recommend layers.

     Visit the Wardrobe Tips page for more ideas.​

How many outfits can I wear during my session?

     I recommend only one because all the shoots are on location and often times there is no good place to change. Some locations even prohibit the use of the restrooms for changing during photo shoots.

 
What happens if it rains on the day of our outdoor session?
     I keep some days open each week for rescheduling if it rains.

 
What happens if my child is sick on the day of our session?
     We want your children 100% healthy to get good happy expressions, I keep some days open each week for rescheduling due to illness.

 
Do you do retouch?
     Yes, all the images are retouched.
