WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO BOOK MY SESSION?
The best time to book your session will depend on which session you intend to book. It's always best to book in advance in order to secure a date for your session.
MATERNITY SESSION. Your maternity session will take place between 32 to 36 weeks of pregnancy when your baby bump is prominent. If you wish to book your session sooner you may definitely do so. It's best to book this session in advance to ensure the perfect date is set.
NEWBORN SESSION. Newborn sessions should occur within the first 5 to 10 days of life (up to 14 days). After two weeks babies can become difficult to settle and are not always able to get into curly poses generally taken during a newborn session. The best time to book is during your pregnancy. By providing me with your due date we can set a tentative date for your session. Once you arrive home from the hospital we'll confirm the date and time for your session.
BABY SESSION. This session should be booked when your baby is 3, 6 to 12 months of age.
CAKE SMASH SESSION. This session should be booked the month of your little one's first birthday! It's best to book this session in advance to ensure the perfect date is set.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
I will bring all the props, wraps, bonnets and backdrops for your newborn session. For individuals and families I recommend picking 2-3 colors and wearing coordinating colors and outfits. This photographs much better than matching outfits and everyone wearing the same color.
HOW DO I BOOK WITH YOU?
Just shoot me an email at JanisOlsonPhotography@gmail.com or contact me here to book a session. There is a 50% retainer fee to book any session.
CAN YOU COME TO MY HOME FOR THE SESSION?
Yes, all newborn sessions take place in the convenience of your own home. All other sessions can be taken at your home or your favorite outdoor location.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY EDITED IMAGES?
You'll receive a link to a private preliminary online gallery with 40 images via email within 10-14 days of your session. At that time you will select the number of images you would like for your final gallery based on the session package you selected. Your final gallery is available 7 days after your selections have been made.
CAN I RECEIVE EXTRA IMAGES?
Yes, you may receive extra image edits. The cost is $15/per image.
WILL YOU ALSO SEND ME THE UN-EDITED IMAGES?
Un-edited images are not provided. As a professional photographer and creative artist I will select the best images for editing and delivery.
DO YOU RELEASE THE IMAGES SO I CAN PRINT THEM ON MY OWN?
Yes, all packages come with a print release to print all edited images once you've signed my terms and conditions contract. You can download high resolutions images from your private online gallery page or order prints from a high quality printer at low prices from your gallery page.
CAN I RESCHEDULE A SESSION ONCE BOOKED?
Yes, I understand life happens. If you need to reschedule your session, please contact me as soon as possible. If you need to cancel a session all together and not reschedule, a $50 cancellation fee will be withheld from the retainer fee paid to book the session.
