FAQ

Thinking about a documentary family photo session? Here are some common questions and my responses to guide you r decision making. If it’s more convenient, feel free to call me to discuss it one-on-one: 516-384-7370



WHEN SHOULD I SCHEDULE MY SESSION?

Give me a call and let’s figure it out!

Weekdays are a great option (consider playing hooky!). The parts of the city where we would shoot are a lot quieter during the week. Weekends are busiest and session spaces fill up fast.

For outdoor photography, early mornings and late afternoons are ideal.

Newborn sessions are best booked a few months ahead with an approximate shoot date placed, and once you give birth, we can determine the exact date.


WHAT IF wE NEED TO RESCHEDULE OR CANCEL?

No Problem; I know life can be unpredictable. Contact me as soon as you realize you need a change and we will find a new session date that works for both of us at no charge.

When booking your session date, we’ll process your 20% deposit. If you decide to cancel and prefer not to reschedule, the session fee is non-refundable but you will not be responsible for the remaining balance.

If the weather is looking poor for an outdoor session, we’ll touch base the day before or morning of, and decide together if we should reschedule.


WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?

Simply wear what you feel comfortable in and what makes you feel good when you’re in it!

Remember this is a documentary style session, so choose what you would normally choose to be in.

Variety is good!

I do recommend avoiding text on clothing, & bold patterns as it can be distracting in photos.

There’s no wrong color, but keep in mind pure white and pure black sometimes draw your eye too much to the clothing.

Ladies, wear or bring along a comfy pair of shoes, as we often do some roaming around!


WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR SESSION DAY?

Expect to have an easy going, fun time with your family while I photograph you. We’ll have your kids act like kids, we’ll do activities that your family usually does together, we’ll take little breaks and we’ll chat. Throughout the entire session, I will document your family interacting and being yourselves with genuine emotion.



wHEN CAN I SEE MY PHOTOS?

I will have your photos ready within 2 weeks from your session date.
