How long will my photo session take?
It depends. General in-studio sittings last about 45 minutes to an hour. Senior sessions may last as long as three hours, depending on the session. Engagement and bridal sessions may last as long as 2 hours. With newborns or small children, we work at their pace. We take breaks for play or feeding, changing, etc. It takes us very little time to take your photo, but it takes longer to capture YOU.
What should we wear?
For most sessions we suggest casual clothing that is comfortable. For in-studio sessions, it is hard to do better than the classics – white shirts with jeans or black shirts with jeans. We can discuss your clothing in detail when you book your session. There may be a particular look you want in your portraits that would be enhanced by a particular clothing. Seniors should wear clothing that defines them. Children should wear simple – overalls with no shirt, jeans and a simple top, something comfortable. As a rule, solid colors always work best!
How long does it take to get my proofs?
Normally your proofs are available for viewing within two weeks of your session. The exception would be weddings, when it takes 3 – 4 weeks for wedding proofs. The process for sessions other than weddings goes something like this: on the day of your session we’ll schedule a time for you to come into our Studio and place your order – usually about 8 days after your session. The day before your ordering appointment we’ll email you a “sneek peak” slideshow to look over. This will get you more prepared for the order placing. Make sure all decision makers are present during this appointment as you’ll be placing your order at this time.
When will my order be ready?
Your order will normally be ready for pickup 7-10 days after you place your order. Special or large size prints may take slightly longer. Expedited order processing is available at a 25 % surcharge.
Do you shoot in color or black and white?
We shoot all of our session using state-of-the-art digital equipment. This means that once we capture the image, we are free to make it color, or black and white, or use a wide variety of digital enhancements.
Can I bring my dog/cat to the session?
The short answer is “Probably”. When you book your session, we can discuss your specific requests.
Can my photos be posted on-line for friends and family to see and order?
Yes! Our on-line site includes a shopping cart which allows family or friends to order directly from the studio, leaving you out of the “order gathering” process! Just let us know your needs at your creation session.
How will my photos be delivered to me?
Anything 11×14 or larger, except for special “poster prints”, will come dry mounted ready for framing. Our packaging is designed to be protective and nice to look at!
Do you offer gift cards?
Yes! Gift certificates are a great way to say “Happy Anniversary”, “Congrats on your new baby!”, or just “I love you”. Gift cards are available in $50.00 increments.
Do you offer Christmas Cards?
You betcha! Ask about our custom Christmas Cards for that card with Your personal touch!
