We would like to make sure you read about our process, so you'll know what to expect and how we will work together to create you session and make sure it's full of FUN!!!
Step 1. Read and agree to our studio processes.
Please let us know if you have any questions about how our studio operates.
Step 2. Complete our questionnaire
Please complete appropriate questionnaire for your session at one of the links below and make sure it is returned to us via email.
Step 3. Complete pre-session consultation.
For previous clients, we can complete this by phone. For new clients, we’ll set up a studio or home visit where we can meet and get to know each other a little and design your session. At this time we’ll discuss session location, time and date of your session and your ordering session, clothing and props. I would also like to meet your children at this time if possible. We do NOT have session or sitting fees!! We have a minimum print purchase that you can see by clicking on our Investment page. We do require a $50 non-refundable retainer to hold your time and date of your session.
Step 4. Portrait Session.
Once you have decided on how many photos you want to choose from, you pay that amount at your session and of course that is less your non-refundable retainer of $50. Then it's time to relax, have fun, and be prepared to laugh! We’ll get fabulous portraits!
Step 5. Sneak Peak on our blog or Facebook. Let us know if you would not like a sneak-peek on our blog. We’ll post a couple pictures for you to share with your friends. We can tag you on Facebook if you are our Facebook friend!
Step 6. Ordering
Approximately, one week after your portrait session we will schedule your Reveal/Viewing session. This is when you will view all your portraits, and place your order. Please have everyone responsible for ordering decisions at this appointment. At least 50% of your balance is required to place your final order. Any remaining balance is due before delivery of your order. Keep in mind you will have your minimum print deposit credit but you are always free to order more. We accept cash, money orders, personal checks, and major credit cards. We do appreciate that there are friends and families that will want to have the ability to purchase photos too. With that in mind, we will also have a password protected online gallery that you can share with your family and friends that they can order from also. The only exception to this is when we are running a Limited Edition Special only then are you expected to pay the full price of the LE special and then at least 50% of what ever additional items you have chosen to order.
Take note: Any images that you order are archived and are available for re-order. All images not ordered are permanently retired. Requests for any retired photos will be subject to a retreival fee.
Step 7. Pick up or Delivery your choice!! Your finished portraits are normally ready for pick-up 2 weeks after you place your order. Portraits that require artwork or printing on specialty mediums can take up to 10 weeks for delivery, but we will let you know if that is the case for any specialty items.
