Where should we do our session
I do on location photography using natural light. I'm happy to do the session in the comfort of your home, in your neighborhood or your favorite spot in New York City. We can chat together about it and decide on the best location. You can also check out my blog for some inspiration.
Do you travel for a session
I do most of my sessions in Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens. I'm happy to travel further afield, a travel fee will be added to the session. Contact me for more details.
What time of day is best for a session outside
Within 2 hours of sunrise or sunset is when the light is at it's best, creating nice soft shadows. I schedule my sessions in the early morning and late afternoon. This can be flexible depending on your needs.
What are your rescheduling/cancellation policies
If the weather doesn’t cooperate or for health reasons, I am flexible to reschedule the session. However, should you require to reschedule the session for a second time, you will be subject to a rescheduling fee. If you'd like to cancel the session, the retainer is however non-refundable.
What can we expect, what is your style
I'm a lifestyle family photographer. I want to capture an afternoon in the life of your family, showing the love and connection you have while spending time together. I use a photojournalistic approach combined with the edginess of street photography to preserve the charms of your family in a natural and realistic way. I don't expect your kids to be "perfect" or to "behave". I want to capture them the way they are, so that you can remember their little personalities later in life.
How should we prepare for the session
I will send you an email after we book the session to guide you with clothing and preparing your home, if we are having an in-home session. I also recommend to talk to your kids about the session a bit, they usually like to know what's going on. During the session, have fun together, make them laugh. That's what will make the best pictures.
How long will the photo session last
Family sessions last around 60 minutes. It's usually the right amount of time.
For newborn sessions, it is usually 2 hours, with plenty of time to feed, change and cuddle.
What if the weather isn't cooperating
I will touch base with you the day before the session and we can decide on a plan depending on the forecast. If we have to, we will reschedule or move the photo session inside.
How long will it take to get our pictures
My turn around time is around 3 weeks.
How many pictures will we get
Around 50 fully edited pictures will be available for you to download from your online gallery. You don't have to select your favorites, you get to keep them all.
Will my photos be retouched
Everything you see on my website is edited up to my standards. I don’t do the heavy retouching look that you see in magazine, I want the photo to represent you exactly the way you are. That is, I will edit out the random pimple and little things like that.
Can I order prints
Yes! I highly recommend that your print your pictures. Through your online gallery, you can buy prints and albums. I offer 3 types of paper, lustre, matte and archival.
If you have any additional questions, feel free to contact me.
