FREQUENT
QUESTIONS 

frequently asked 

WHAT IF OUR KIDS DON't cooperate?

Let's be honest, do kids ever do what we expect them to do? The best way to prepare for your session is to tell your kids that you're going to play together as a family while having photos done. Let them know what to expect, and that it will be fun!! The more you relax and let what happens happen the more likely we are to get beautiful images of who you all really are as a family. The MAGIC is always found in the chaos... PROMISE

 


WHAT IF IT RAINS ON OUR DATE?

No one wants to look like a wet dog in their photos so if it looks like it's going to rain, snow, hail or some other weather catastrophe, we'll be in touch via email or phone to reschedule. Often, when we're scheduling our initial portrait session date, if it works for our calendars, we'll can actually set up both a main date and a rain date just to make sure we don't have to postpone your session for very long if the weather is bad on the original date. 

 


What should we wear?

Don't worry! It's easier than you think to choose outfits! I'll be sending you an entire session guide FULL of styling and wardrobe tips for the entire family! I also offer Style & Select complimentary with my sessions to make is really easy to find clothes you will LOVE!



 


How will we receive our photos?

I use a top notch gallery program for easy online delivery of your images. You will be able to view your gallery, download your images,  share with friends and family, and utilize your print credits to get your photos off of your screen and into your hands!



 


How far in advance should we book?

Sooner rather than later! Weekends book up really quickly, especially during the popular spring and fall months! The earlier you book the more options you'll have for dates, and the more time we'll have to plan a session just right for you!



 


Where is your studio located?

My studio is a bright and welcoming space in The Shoppes of Lafayette, lafayette NJ. Decorated in whites, creams, and a bit of a soft boho vibe, we can customize a session just for you! The Studio is the perfect spot for beautiful Motherhood, maternity milestone, small family, first birthday and newborn sessions. 



 


When is the best time to book a newborn session?

Congrats on expecting!! That's so exciting! I recommend booking 3-6 months in advance to be sure we're fully ready for the session when baby comes! We all know they have their own plan!
Materntiy sessions are best done around weeks 30 -32
Newborn sessions are best within the first 14 days of life, in your home, or in my Lafayette NJ studio



 


Do you offer A Military + LEO Discount?

Yes! I am a LEO wife, and fully support our armed services/ LEO families! 
All active Military and Law Enforcement a 10% discount on all of my services! THANK YOU for for your service!
