FAQ – Families
Every family is unique and our style is to capture the personality and panache of you and your loved ones!
Where & when should our session take place?
Our studio is best suited for children under 1 year of age and is our go to spot for newborn, 6 month and 1 year sessions. For older children and their families, we love doing photographs outdoors at fun and unique locations: your favorite park, a downtown urban setting, a pumpkin patch, the beach, a Christmas tree farm, etc. We’ve got a long list of favorite photo spots if you need some suggestions!
What should we wear?
Your family session should capture you and your family – so be you! If you are a casual family, dress casually. If you are a stylish family, go stylish! Props that capture your interests and personality are encouraged: bikes, guitars, tutus, hockey jerseys, etc.
What if my children don’t want to have their photo taken?
Children can be difficult to photograph at times, depending on their personalities, and their willingness to cooperate. We have MANY tricks up our sleeves to help bring out their personalities as well as an arsenal of noisemakers, puppets, stickers, etc. that will easily make them smile! If you have concerns about how your child may cooperate during the session please let us know ahead of time.
What if my child or myself is sick on the day of the session?
If you or your child are sick, we kindly ask that you call and reschedule ASAP (please provide us with as much notice as possible). Trying to “tough it out” usually ends is disappointment as your child will not look or act like themselves during the session and this will be reflected in your photos. We would rather reschedule to give you the best session possible!
Do you do “cake smash” sessions?
Absolutely! A “cake smash” session is usually done for a child’s first birthday but there are no age restrictions! Cake smashes result in lots of laughs (and a great big mess – we’ll clean it up, don’t worry!) Our studio is the perfect location for this. You bring the cake or cupcake, we’ve got birthday hats, balloons, tutus, etc. Don't want to do a cake? We have done birthday sessions with a stack of fruit, grated cheese, whipped cream - whatever makes your little one happy works for us!
How long after my session will my images be ready?
Our typically turnaround for proof galleries is 2-3 weeks depending on our current workload.
