Frequently Asked Questions

 

What do you consider to be your style?

My photography incorporates a lifestyle approach that is classic and timeless. It focuses on real moments, and natural, uncontrived portraits. I am a big advocate for letting kids be themselves so that their true spirit comes through in the photographs.

 

HOw long have you been photographing portraits?

I have 8 years of expertise in photographing children and families.


WHY Are your services different?

My services are different in that I let my clients relax so that they can entrust my vision.  Having your portraits taken should be fun and easy going, and my clients appreciate not having to worry. I'm also with you every step of the way, whether it's choosing a location, or deciding on wardrobe.

 

Where do sessions take place?

My most favorite place to photograph sessions is in the home, but portraits can also happen at a location of your choice. I am also available to help with location suggestions or permits if needed.

 

What's the best time for our portrait session?

If your portrait session is taking place at home, we can work around nap times and feedings. For outdoor sessions, the best time is about 2 hours before sunset. 

What's included with the session? 

If you purchase a session a la carte, the session fee covers time and talent, and a gallery will be made available where you can purchase prints or digital files separately.

If you purchase the digital collection, you will receive a finished and professional product. Each digital photograph is thoughtfully edited and enhanced for printing. 

How many images will there be?

Family sessions typically yield anywhere from 65 - 125 images. Every session and family is different so it can vary.

Will we be able to make our own prints?

I offer full service album design, archival prints and other products, but you can definitely make your own prints or build your own album if you choose. I'll be happy to recommend consumer services that I like and trust.

are you LGBTQ Friendly?

I'm so sorry that in this day and age you even have to ask. Absolutely, I am a strong believer in diversity and excited to work with families in the LGBTQ community. 

Do you travel? Is there a travel Fee?

I travel for portraits within NJ and NYC. Outside of this area we can discuss a small fee to cover the basics depending on where you're located.

How do we Book our session?

The session fee of $350 + tax  is due at the scheduling of your session. If you opt for the digital collection, the balance is due on the day of your session.

What should we wear?

I'm happy to discuss wardrobe options with you and offer advice on what would work best! Every family is different so we can talk about what would work best for your photographs.
