Booking: Pease contact me at 209-284-5500 or firstname.lastname@example.org to book your session. A limited number of spots will be available. Sessions fill up fast.
Prints: Sessions come with high resolution digital downloads of the images you choose with no watermarking. Prints can be ordered through your download gallery for an additional fee. Print Pricing can be found here.
Holiday Cards: Custom Holiday Card options will be sent over in addition to your proofs after your session. Images used and wording can be swapped on any of the cards. Samples of my custom cards will be available for viewing the day of your session.
Clothing: Sessions allow for one outfit. Due to time constraints no outfit changes will be available. Dark blues, white, greens and reds look great for holiday images.
Group Size: Sessions are limited to 7 people or pets for minis. If you wish to do a mini session with an extended family, you will need to book a double mini session. (1 hour, $150 total, 10 images). Large groups take much longer to position and photograph, especially when breaking down into smaller subgroups and individuals.
Covid Safety Information: Hand sanitizer will be available for use during your session. I ask that you refrain from bringing anyone that will not be photographed to your session, with the exception of parental guardians. All individuals over the age of 5 need to be wearing a mask before and after your session to minimize risk. I will be wearing a mask all day as will all of my helpers. Please stay at least 6 feet away from other groups that may be waiting for the sessions. This park is quite large, there will be plenty of room.
Arriving on Time: Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your session start time. Sessions are every 30 minutes. Someone will be available to check you in prior to your session start time. Sessions are 20 minutes long. Late arrivals will lose session time. If you arrive 20 minutes past your session start time you will lose your slot as well as your retainer. If you think you might be late, please give me a call at 209-284-5500.
