Portrait Sessions FAQ's

Choosing a package

Choosing a package is not as difficult as you may think. The amount of people you have will determine the package that best fits your family. The best way to find the right package for you is to make a list of the pictures you are wanting. For example: full group, grandparent with grandchildren, parents with children, individual family groups, children, cousins, siblings, etc. Also bring the list with you will help me to insure we take all the photos you are wanting.

Receiving your gallery

You will receive an email with a link to your gallery within 14 days. You will choose to download the whole gallery or just the pictures you want. To share the gallery with friends and family simply forward the email to them. You may also order prints, canvas prints and cards from your gallery.

Booking with Kids and babies

If you have babies or children make sure they are well rested, fed and happy. Keep in mind kids can get overheated, tired and cranky on hot days. You may want to consider a morning photo shoot. You know your child the best so think about their mood throughout the day and pick a time that you think would work best for your child.

Booking your session

When choosing a day and time for your session you should keep a few things in mind. Book for the first or second day of your trip. Florida’s weather can be unpredictable! If the weather decides to not cooperate you will have a couple days to play with for rescheduling your session. Also if you are fair skinned you usually have a sunburn by the end of your trip.

As far as time of day, it really is your preference. Do you want a brighter sunnier look or do you want the sunrise or sunset hour look. All can be beautiful but also keep in mind if you have children, babies or elderly with you. What time of day works best for them.
