During the session
Sessions are never rushed, typically a normal family/child session will last around 1 hour, so plan around your child's schedule accordingly. I will not be telling them to say "cheese" to get a forced smile, rather I will be interacting and helping them have a good time, capturing natural smiles and expressions.
Newborn sessions are a bit different and will last anywhere from one to three hours. To get a baby who looks content and happy for portaits, time is essential. Most newborns will need time for eating and soothing in between shots. The studio is kept around 78 degrees which is usually not comfortable for adults, but for the babies who I cater to.
After the session
Approximately two to three weeks after your session, you will receive a link to your private online gallery. This gallery will expire fourteen days after being uploaded. It is highly recommended that you order during this time.
Once your gallery expires, there will be a $25.00 fee to republish the gallery for another 2 weeks. After placing your order, Melissa will arrange a time for you to pick up your portraits. It usually takes 2-3 weeks to get your order to you.
