"Boho, Baby!" Spring Signature Session FAQ
Who is this for?
These sessions are perfect for children of any age, either alone or with siblings! The floral swing makes such a fun backdrop for capturing your child's innocence and wonder! I will photograph siblings together, and individually for some great images that you and your children will love.
How do we book?
You can see our available session dates and times and reserve your session at this link. You will need to select your desired “day/time” from the available options, and check out with a credit card. If you prefer to book over the phone, feel free to contact me at 412.374.7359 and I will be happy to take your payment information.
What should we wear?
If you are planning to use the Studio's wardrobe, please plan to arrive 15 minutes before your session so that you will have time to change. A pop-up dressing room will be provided. Please bring a backup outfit in case your child's size is not available or the available wardrobe is not to your liking. Shoes and jewelry will not be provided.
If you plan to use your own clothing, I recommend a plain colored dress for girls (no patterns) and a button down shirt with a tie or suspenders for boys (again, no patterns). Shoes should be a neutral color, black, or metallic and jewelry should be kept to a minimum.
Some other things to consider:
Please remove chipped nail polish or touch it up before the session.
Please remove any temporary tattoos or stickers.
What is the 8x10 Artist's Choice Inspiration Print?
It is a print of your child’s image with inspirational text and graphics. The combination of images, text and graphics will make a unique art piece that will serve as a daily reminder to your child to be positive, stay strong, or be brave. It is the perfect piece to display in your child’s room to give them the self-confidence they will need to navigate the years ahead.
How do I use my print credit and order more prints from the session?
2-3 weeks after your session, we will schedule your Ordering Appointment. where you will see 6-10 images from your session. Your print credit MUST be used at the Ordering Appointment or it will be forfeited. Additional prints and products may be ordered during this appointment as well.
Am I required to order a package or additional prints and products?
Absolutely not! There is no obligation for you to order additional prints or products, however, most people find that it is hard to choose just one image from their session and often purchase additional items. Most clients spend between $500 - $700, including the session fee.
When should we arrive?
We recommend arriving 10-15 minutes before your scheduled session time, especially if you are using the Studio's wardrobe. Since the sessions are on such a tight schedule, anyone arriving more than 5 minutes late for their session will forfeit their session retainer.
What happens if we need to cancel or reschedule?
Because we have such a limited time frame for these portraits, the session retainer is non-refundable. If we have more available dates specific to the "Boho, Baby!" sessions, we can reschedule as long as you give us at least 48 hours notice. No-shows forfeit the entire session retainer. Anybody more than 5 minutes late for their session will forfeit their session retainer.
Can I give this session as a gift to my wife or mother?
Absolutely! Just go through the checkout process and book at this link, using your own information. After you successfully purchase the session, pop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org letting me know you are using this as a gift. At that point I’ll mail you a certificate you can give as a gift.
Can I include all of my children so that they can be photographed together?
You sure can, however, any group with more than 3 children needs to purchase two back-to-back sessions. A larger group will take longer to photograph. You will get the complete benefit of two sessions (double the product credit and two identical inspiration prints)
Can we get in the pictures and can we include grandma too?
I am happy to do a quick photo of you and Dad with your children, however, since this is a mini-session, I am unable to include grandparents or other relatives due to time constraints. You can email or call us about a traditional portrait session if you would like a complete set of family portraits. Our traditional portrait sessions include portraits of your children together, individuals of your children, you and your partner, and can include grandparents too!
