Studio Info

WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY SESSION?
As soon as possible. I book out at least two weeks in advance.

WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY NEWBORN SESSION?
Babies photograph best in the first few days of their precious lives. I like to book newborn sessions as soon as you know a due date. I schedule the session for your due date. This gives us room to reschedule as needed for when the baby arrives.

WHAT IS INCLUDED WITH MY SESSION FEE?
Your session fee covers the studio time, my time and use of my large assortment of props and accessories. It also includes a 30 day online gallery to share with friends and family. It does not include any proofs, prints, etc.

WHERE DO SESSIONS TAKE PLACE?
Most sessions take place in my studio in Pierre. I do offer outdoor or on location sessions at your location of choice, within a reasonable distance from the studio at no additional cost.

WHAT IF MY CHILD IS SICK?
Please reschedule. If your child is not feeling well, please give me a call to reschedule. A child that is not feeling well and photos do not mix well and does not give the child a very good experience. Please keep this in mind as well when scheduling your childs shots.

DO YOU PROVIDE THE PROPS/ACCESSORIES?
Yes and no. I have a very large selection of props and accessories as well as rompers, skirts, hats and ties. Most everything you see in my galleries are mine, but occasionally clients do bring their own items in as well. If you are ever wondering, please ask. I am always adding to my collection to give my clients more cute things to choose from. Birthday cake smash sessions are an exception to this. Give me a call to discuss your birthday cake session in more detail.

HOW LONG DO SESSIONS LAST? 
Newborn sessions last 2-3 hours. Children sessions are 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the session you choose. Family sessions are 30-60 minute sessions depending on indoor/outdoor and the location. We can always adjust the session as needed depending on the situation. All session times also account for set-up, tear down and travel time.

HOW LONG BEFORE I SEE MY IMAGES AND HOW DO I SEE MY IMAGES?
I try my best to have your gallery online within 7-10 days of your session. However, during the holiday season, sessions can take up to 2 weeks. I always contact you via e-mail when your gallery is live.

DO I HAVE TO COME BACK TO PLACE MY ORDER?
I do prefer that every client comes back to the studio to place your order. We will set this session up within 14-21 days of your portrait session. My screens are color calibrated to give you the most liking to what you will get in final print. This can make a huge difference in the viewing experience from what you see on your home computer screen that is not calibrated. I am also able to answer questions about different products as well as give my professional opinion and advice and assist you with your order. I understand that this may not always be an option and am willing to do a phone order or allow you to order through your online gallery. Your gallery is available for viewing for30 days for no charge. If additional time is requested, an additional fee will be assessed.
