What to Expect + FAQ

What to Expect:

Capturing memories should be a fun experience that I just happen to be capturing with my camera. Let me do all of the hard work while you enjoy your session. Your session will be a variety of poses, expressions, backgrounds, and props, but don’t worry about all of that! I’ll set everything up, and keep the props picture perfect along the way.

Where do you shoot the sessions?

 I shoot in my Williamsville, NY studio or at a location in the Buffalo and surrounding WNY area. I have a list of my favorite locations, but depending on the time of year, and the type of session you’re booking, we can find the perfect place that suits all of our needs!

When should I book my session with you?

If you’re booking a newborn session, it should be booked 2 months in advance. Family Portrait and Children Sessions can be booked 1 month in advance. I will hold your session date with a signed contract and a $100 nonrefundable retainer fee.

The weather is bad, is my session canceled?

If it is raining and it doesn’t look like it’s going to clear up, we may have to reschedule. But don’t fret, I’ll contact you if that becomes necessary. If it’s cloudy, that’s okay! Cloudy days are actually desirable for a photography session.

What time of day is best for my outdoor session?

For outdoor sessions, I recommend early morning hours or 1-2 hours before sunset. These times usually have the best lighting conditions!

What should I wear for my photos?

Please wear something that reflects your style and personality and that you feel comfortable in. Solid colors or earth tones work better than patterns which can get a little distracting in pictures. Accessories are great! Use them matching the season: A scarf, a hat, sunglasses, etc. are always a nice addition. Need a little inspiration? Check out my Pinterest Board: What to Wear for My Session

Um, what if I have a blemish?!

Don’t worry! Full editing is absolutely included. I’ll remove blemishes on images upon request.

How can I prepare my child for a portrait?

My goal is to create a fun and happy environment for your child so that we will get genuine expressions and happy faces. Let them know that they are going to have a fun day with the family and that I will be joining you to take pictures of all the fun!
