PRICES AND INFORMATION ARE VALID FOR 2017

My goal as your photographer is to deliver a high quality product for a reasonable investment.  Just as important, I strive to make the session fun for everyone.  With kids, I bring a sense of humor, lots of patience and an array of tricks for engaging different ages and personalities.  Your investment includes my time, my experience using high-end camera gear, any consultations before and after the session, the use of props where appropriate, travel within 15 miles of Scituate, and the professional preparation of 25+ gallery images.  In addition to mounted prints and digital files, I also offer custom framing, albums, metal prints, and fine art canvases.   I recommend booking your session at least 8 weeks prior to your preferred date. All sessions take place one hour before sunset unless otherwise arranged.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • What happens if it rains/snows?  If it is raining or snowing (or predicted), I will be in touch with you by phone to confirm whether the session is cancelled.  In the event that I do cancel the session, we will work together to find a new date that is suitable for everyone. 
  • What if you need to cancel your session? The registration fee is transferable but non refundable.  I will work with you to try and reschedule your session to a mutually agreeable date. It is possible that the session may have to be rescheduled for the following year.
  • What should we wear?  If you have put the time aside to have your photos taken professionally, then you should also take the time to choose your attire!  It is recommended that you coordinate clothing so that everyone's coloring works together.  White, off white, and creamy tones can work with nearly every person and every season.  Nice jeans also work well in most settings.  Consider accent colors by incorporating jewelry, scarves, hats, shoes, or belts.  What to avoid... large prints, t-shirts, stripes, and matching outfits. Check out my Pinterest Boards on "What to Wear" for inspiration and ideas.
  • Can you photoshop me? Editing is included in your finished images and I want you to be happy.  If I notice something amiss, I will do my best to fix it.
