If you’ve never had family photos taken before, today’s post should be helpful! Below, I’ve included the questions that I hear most often. There are no bad questions, so please feel free to drop me an email if I’ve missed any of yours! 🙂
Who are your clients?
My clients appreciate great style and design, but they enjoy a good pair of PJs even more. They believe that snuggling is an expression of love, and that family photography is more than just a perfect holiday card — it’s a gift for their children and future grandchildren. My clients are busy people, but they also believe in pressing pause and finding time to laugh together.
Is your style candid or posed?
My style is a marriage of posed and candid moments. I think it’s important to capture a few classic shots with everyone looking at the camera, but I’m also inspired by the fleeting moments between the poses — the way mom looks at dad as he gives his daughter a piggyback ride, or the way your son giggles with mischievous delight as he toddles away from you.
Where do you shoot?
Typically sessions take place either at your home or outdoors in downtown Boston. Bonus points if you can think of a location that’s meaningful to your family (especially if that place is JP Licks!)
What should we wear?
I love helping my clients choose their outfits — it’s like piecing together a puzzle! Before your session, I’ll send you a guide that’s jam-packed with clothing tips and tricks (psst – you can get early access to the guide further down this page!) If you’re extra stumped, you’re welcome to send me photos of potential combos so that I can give you personalized guidance.
What happens if we get rained out?
Gotta love Boston weather, huh? I keep a number of backup dates open each month in case of bad weather, and there’s no charge to reschedule to a new date if it’s raining or overcast.
Help!!! I’m not photogenic at all!
Believe it or not, pretty much EVERYONE tells me this before their session, and it never turns out to be true! I have a lot of tricks up my sleeve to help you look fabulous. When you’re having a great time, you’ll look more beautiful than you thought was possible — I promise!
Do you offer digital files?
I believe that you should be able to print and share your images as many times as you’d like, and that’s why every session includes your choice of 15 full-resolution digital files with a print release. Black & white copies are also provided with every image you order.
If you’re head-over-heels for your proofs, extra digital files are also available for purchase.
How long will it take to receive our images?
You’ll receive your proof gallery two weeks after your session date, and your finished digital files will be in your hands two weeks after that (so the total turnaround time is one month).
