What should the children wear for the shoot?
Please feel free to bring several options to choose from. It is worth spending some time the days before the session looking for different outfits and colors. Before the shooting, we will be able to choose the best combinations together.
What should I do on the set?
Please supervise and stay near your child during the whole shoot, you may be asked to hold a prop, pull in and out the pacifier in between shots if the baby is fussy. While I focus on taking nice photos, please focus on your children’s wellbeing.
How do I prepare the child for the session?
Please make sure that the child is well-rested and serene before the shooting and that he/she has eaten, but avoiding excessive sugar intake. Feel free to bring your’s child favorite treat.
What if my child has scratches?
The scratches will be removed in your final artistically photographs. Each package comes with a different quantity of retouched images. Please refer to the price list for more information. Extra retouched images are available upon request.
What if I need to cancel or reschedule?
Your appointment can be rescheduled without charge up to 48 hours before the shoot. The deposit is fully refundable within a week prior to the shoot.
Where will the sessions take place?
As you book your session please choose your preferred location in either Brooklyn and Manhattan.
Which place do you recommend for printing?
I recommend Adorama for prints of your photographs. Their online service is convenient, reasonably priced, and of high quality. Information about their services can be found here: www.adoramapix.com. For greeting cards, postcards, and specialty products, I recommend Tinyprints. Their website is www.tinyprints.com.
What is the difference between Basic Retouching and Artistically Retouched images?
You will receive all the photos taken during your photoshoot, I will edit out the blinks, blurs, and obvious ‘in-between shots’ that sometimes come with my style of direction. All the images in this selection will be treated with a Basic Retouching, which means they will be cropped, color corrected and ready to print. Each package comes with a fixed number of Artistically Retouched images. I can also retouch additional images for $25 per image. I like the retouching to look absolutely natural. Good retouching is imperceptible. My retouching style retains skin texture while maintaining natural shading and highlights. I will remove blemishes, smooth out wrinkles, and dark circles. Upon request, I will be happy to hide double chins, extra weight, as well as whiten teeth or improve the look of your hair by removing frizzy hairs and improving the overall appearance of your hair. I strive to make you look your absolute best while still looking like yourself.
When will I receive my digital images and my prints?
Within 2 weeks after the shoot, you will receive a download link with the photographs from our session. You will receive your prints in 30 days. Rush delivery is available upon request.
What are my user rights for the photographs?
