Typically around 2 weeks. If you need to see them sooner, please let me know when you schedule your session. In the busiest seasons it can take up to 3 weeks.
What retouching will be done to my photos?
General editing: I will always edit away blemishes, bruises and scratches. I may lessen the appearance of pock-marks, shaving scars and mild acne scars. Extreme scarring may be smoothed, but not removed as it would dramatically alter the person's appearance. Skin will be smoothed a bit so that it looks naturally soft. Under-eye circles are removed or lightened on adults per my discretion so that it looks natural. I generally leave laugh lines. Generally, my job is to make the images the best they can and make your heart smile when you see them.
On newborns, I will lessen the appearance of stork bites, clean up goopy eyes, and remove peeling skin on the face. I do not edit away: • Umbilical cords or scabs inside the belly button (please let me know before your session if you would like the belly button area hidden/covered), • Mongolian spots • Hemangiomas • Birth defects (Please discuss with me any concerns before your session). • Peeling/flaking hands and feet (I may remove some, but not all, per my discretion. Please massage Aquaphor on your baby prior to your session if this is a concern). • My goal with newborns is to document their newness. This does sometimes mean sweet pealy skin.
How do I see the photos after my session?
At the time of your session, we will schedule a time for you to come back to the studio or if necessary meet at your home to view your images. At this time, you will choose which images you would like to purchase in either print or digital. I will provide the digital images to you prior to you leaving. Any print products will be ordered and delivered by mail or studio pick up within 1-2 weeks for most products (albums can take longer). I have great collections that include prints, albums, and digital product for you and also offer a la carte items. After this meeting, I can upload the images on line for family to view and order if desired.
When is payment due?
Session fees are due at the time you book your session to hold the date. At the time of the ordering session you are asked to at least pay a deposit towards the order. Many pay for the full order but I understand that many cannot do that. I do offer payment plans to those that need it. Full product will not be delivered until the time of final payment.
Do you accept credit cards?
Yes, I accept all major credit cards, including American Express and Discover. I use square processing for all credit payments.
