What are your hours?
We book our sessions Monday through Saturday (between 10am & 4pm) and are booked exclusively by appointment only.
When should I book my session?
Typically throughout the year, we book approximately 2-3 weeks ahead, however Autumn and Christmas appointments should always be booked 4-6 weeks ahead - so please keep this in mind when calling to book. When it comes to Maternity and/or Newborn sessions, the earlier the better. When you are in your 2nd trimester you should be thinking about booking to secure a date. However, it is never too late to book! We are always happy to work with everyone's schedule and can usually squeeze in last minute Mon-Fri week-day session if your dates are flexible.
Are digital images included with my session?
No prints, products OR hi-resolution digital images are included in our session fees - However, with all purchased images (whether separately or in a Collection) you can request a complimentary 'social media file' for sharing - since our clients want to be able to share their beautiful images with family and friends. Hi-resolution printable Digital files are also available.
What are your pricing options?
Every Session we offer has a Session fee - they range from 25 (Fairytale Portraits) to 100 (Signature Deluxe Portrait Sessions). Session fees do not include prints, products or collections. Session Fees cover time for the session only. Approximately 7-10 days after your Session, you will return to the Studio for an In-Person Premiere Ordering Session which should be attended by all decision-makers. At this time, you will have the option of purchasing your images either A La Carte (Gift Prints start at 30, Wall Art starts at 99) or by selecting a Collection (starting at 250). There are no minimum orders or requirements to buy - purchase only what you LOVE!
Where will my session take place?
Signature Newborn Sessions and themed Fairytale Portraits take place indoors at the Studio - while ALL other Sessions can take place either in the Studio or Outdoors at an agreed upon location - weather permitting (May to November)
Do I need to bring anything to my session?
For most Sessions, you do not need to bring any props as Natasha already has a large collection at the Studio. However, we encourage you to bring special items you have purchased or that are meaningful to you. We will discuss styles and colors for your session prior to your scheduled session and she will have everything ready to go for your Session upon arrival at the Studio. For 6 month and 1 year portraits, we do have a collection of beautiful dresses and classic outfits that you are welcome to use, but most people also bring their own and we use a mix of both. For Cake Smash sessions you will need to bring a cake for your child. Banners and props are optional as we do have a small collection at the studio. If you have a special theme you would like implemented at your session, we will chat and collaborate in case you need to purchase specialty props ahead of time.
For toddlers and small children - always bring an assortment of dry snacks or treats :-)
