Frequently Asked Questions

Booking My Session

When is the best/ideal time for the session to take place?


Studio sessions are held from 10am to 1pm Outdoor sessions are held during "golden hour" or the last 2.5 hours before sunset when natural light is best. This changes based on time of day and location. ---- Maternity - 34 to 37 weeks to capture beautiful bump without feeling "too" big

Newborn - Mulitple factors are considered when booking; typically aim for 5 to 12 days new

Milestones - aim for milestones such as tummy time, sitting up, standing with assistance, walking, etc. instead of booking on exact 3, 6, 9 month-stones
1st birthday - 6 weeks prior if you intended on using for invitations. 4 weeks prior to have printed at the birthday party. At least 2 weeks early to have just for memory of their 1st birthday.
Family - Peak times book quickly (fall and spring)- summer is hot and muggy, winter is cold.




What locations do you shoot at?

My studio size is for portraits, newborns, and milestones- not for really large families (under 8 is best for a family portrait).




What happens after the session?


My average turn around time is approximately 2-3 weeks (a little longer during the fall and spring rush).

You will receive an email with your gallery information and details on how to obtain your images included in your session cost. You may download your included images as well as purchase additional images and prints from your gallery.




When should I book my session?


As soon as possible! Spring and fall are my busiest seasons.

Newborn sessions- book while you are still pregnant! We set the session date based off your estimated due date and finalize once baby is born. Jeni only accepts 6 newborns a month so booking early is key.




Prints? Printing Rights?


Prints?
You will be able to order basic prints, canvas, standouts (a mounted canvas alternative), metal prints, directly from your gallery, along with additional digital images.
Printing Rights?
Yes, you can choose to print else where *up to a 8x10 size. Anything larger than 8x10 needs to be printed thru me to maintain resolution and photo quality. Please keep in mind that prints done elsewhere will NOT be professional quality or color calibrated to my computer and editing. The images in your gallery are watermarked until you download, so you shouldn't need a release, however, if you do, please message me. Walmart will ask for a print release; I recommend not printing with them; not highest quality.




Do You Have Props?


Yes! I have all the props you would need for a newborn session- hats, wraps, headbands, blankets, baskets and more.

I have rompers, pants, tutus for little children.
Turning one? I have the number "1" and letters o-n-e available for use.

I have lots of boxes and baskets for standers, a little stool and chair for sitters.




What if I need to cancel or reschedule my session?


Cancellations by client: Your deposit will be surrendered if you need to cancel (meaning you don't plan to reschedule).

Re-scheduling: your deposit will still apply to your session without penalty. Multiple reschedule attemps may result in a surrender of deposit.

The weather often plays a role in re-scheduling. I aim to keep Sundays open for my family days as well as a day to use for re-scheduled sessions.
