How far in advance should I reserve my session date? The sooner, the better. We schedule sessions on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. You may reserve your session date by phone or email (note that the session fee is due upon booking to hold your date). Our busiest time of year is September-November, so if you would like a session in the fall, book as early as possible. For newborn sessions, we recommend that you call us BEFORE you have your baby, and we will schedule you about 1 week after your due date. The session can then be adjusted if needed, depending on when you have your baby. If you are hoping to capture that sleepy, curled up brand new look, you should plan on having your newborn’s session 6-7 days after birth.
When are portrait sessions available? We currently schedule sessions on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Sessions are usually scheduled in the morning, as babies and children are usually happier and more cooperative at that time of day. We do have a limited number of afternoon/evening sessions available.
Where will my session take place? You choose the location for your session: our residential studio, your home, or an outdoor location.
How do I view my images? Within two weeks of your session date, you will view your images at a personal ordering appointment at Emily’s home & studio in Centerville. You will view your images projected on a screen, and you can make your selections by seeing images at their final size. If we have a snapshot of your wall, we can even show you what your images will look like in your own home, scaled to the actual size on your wall.
When will I receive my order? Please allow about 4 weeks from the time you place your order to receive your finished products. Quality is worth the wait!
Do you offer gift certificates? Yes, gift certificates are available in any amount.
What is the best age to have my baby photographed? I highly recommend capturing your baby during three stages in the first year. Three sessions are included in our Baby’s First Year plan. See more information under our ESPECIALLY FOR BABIES page.
