FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What should we wear for our session?
The choice is yours, there are no rules. I suggest browsing the galleries to get ideas. My only suggestion is to avoid wearing outfits featuring the same color for all members of the family. If you are having a family session, have fun coordinating and playing with different patterns and colors. Newborns often photograph best in diapers or wrapped in blankets. For maternity sessions, it is a good idea to have several outfits ready: black pants, blue jeans, skirts, long dresses, tank tops, shirts, etc.
What is vintage photography?
Vintage sessions are great for children and adults. Simply dress in a classic, timeless outfit and choose a favorite location. I have several locations I can recommend in the Boston Metrowest area. The results are beautiful images with a classic look. They can be black & white, color or a combination of both. All vintage sessions are custom made; please email me for details.
Do you have a studio space?
I am an on-location photographer only. I do not have a studio space at this time. I bring my portable studio to your home. It personalizes your images, and makes them even more meaningful.
Do you request a minimum order?
No, I don't. I want my pricing structure to accommodate every budget. Some people come to me and purchase the entire set of digital images plus print products. Some others, like high school seniors only need 1 digital image for the yearbook.
What happens if my child is fussy during the session?
Most children forget about the camera after a few minutes and they get to relax and be themselves. In the event that your child is fussy and doesn't cooperate throughout your session, I can offer to redo your session at no additional cost at a more convenient time.
Should I book a studio or an outdoor session?
I prefer to limit studio sessions to newborns, maternity sessions, and adults. For children, I suggest booking an outdoor session, since they seem to be happier to move around and explore their surroundings and be themselves.
Do you limit the number of people to be photographed in a session?
Everyone in the family is welcome to pose during my sessions, including your family pet. I just limit the amount of time of my outdoor regular session to 1 hour. However I limit mini-sessions to 4 people.
When is the best time to have a newborn session?
There's no ideal time. Whenever you and your baby feel ready. This session can be outdoors or at your home.
When is the best time to have a maternity session?
There's no ideal time. Whenever you feel ready. This session can be outdoors or at your home.
Do you cover events?
Every year I cover a limited number of events, like birthdays, anniversaries, bar/bat mitzvah, baptisms, etc. Please email me for details.
