*I ask for a $50 deposit at the time of your booking to hold your session date. This deposit will go towards your total session fee. It is non-refundable, but it is transferable. I just ask that you reschedule within 6 months. Please note, if cancelling a studio session, I have to have at least a 5 hour notice. If less than 5 hours, a $25 rebooking fee will be charged. THANKS!
*Cake Smash~ These are always fun and always messy! We will do the cake smash at the end of your session. There is a sink in the studio to clean up your little one; just remember to bring extra clothes and diaper! Some things to think about with cake smash cakes... buttercream and whip cream frostings usually smash the best. Also, remember to ask the baker for a bright, decorated 6 inch or petite cake.
*I LOVE when families invite other family members to our sessions! However, you will be charged a $5 fee for each additional person outside the immediate family. These members will be included in group photos. However, if individual or couples photos are wanted, an additional session fee will be charged.
*Please arrive 5-10 minutes early to your session. This is a good time for you to make sure your "littles" are clean of crumbs, hair is brushed, and tummies are full. It also gives us time to chat and get acquainted!
*I am a local photographer and will do photo shoots within 15 miles of Lake Zurich. I am willing to travel, but I do charge a fee of $1/mile, total trip.
*What should you wear? I know this is always stressful when preparing for your family photos! I suggest looking at pinterest.com for ideas. I also suggest browsing through my gallery of photos. I may be biased, but I think I have pretty attractive clients with great style! Also, think about the colors your family looks good in AND what colors will compliment your home décor. Hopefully, these photos will be displayed in your home and color coordinating is always a good idea! (*hint: Moms... I like to find my outfit first and plan my family's outfits accordingly! :-))
*After our session is complete, I typically take 2-3 weeks to edit and deliver your images. These will be delivered to you via Shoot Proof. You will be emailed a link and password to view your images. Included will be a print release to use to print at photo labs. I suggest using Mpix or another professional photo lab. The quality is much better than using a lab such as Costco, Walgreens, Walmart, etc. There is a noticeable difference when printing at these labs.
*Pricing subject to change without notice. All pricing current as of February 2016.
