WHAT DOES THE SESSION FEE COVER?
The session fee covers a one to three hour session at the location of your choice. Stacy never never rushes her time with you and only schedules one session per day so that she can devote her undivided attention to you and your family. The session fee also includes a personalized ordering session in her studio and an online gallery to share with friends and family. Prints and products are sold separately. Products and Collections may be viewed HERE.
DO YOU OFFER DIGITAL FILES?
We offer two digital collections which are our most popular collections. All digital collections come with a recommendation to our local and online labs that print on professional paper and allow you to have the same quality prints that you would receive from our studio. We do however recommend ordering products like albums and canvasses through our studio which we offer at a discounted rate when choosing digital products.
DO YOU OFFER ANY SPECIALS WHEN BOOKING MATERNITY AND NEWBORN SESSIONS TOGETHER?
When booking maternity and newborn sessions together, we offer a $100 discount off your session fees. This package also allows you to order from both of your sessions in one collection. For example, if you choose to purchase the digital collection, you will receive all files from both sessions for the price of one collection. Mini milestone sessions may also be added on at six months and one year when booking a maternity and newborn collection. Many of our clients order an album of the entire first year at the one year session.
WHERE WILL OUR SESSION TAKE PLACE?
During your initial phone consultation with Stacy, you will decide together what location is best for you. Newborn sessions are done at her natural light studio in Tampa and Stacy loves in home family sessions as well. Of course Stacy is always open to new locations!
WHAT IS THE BEST AGE TO HAVE MY BABY PHOTOGRAPHED?
Newborn sessions are ideally done in the first five to ten days when babies are still nice and sleepy. Once babies are over ten days, posing becomes more of a challenge as they are far less tolerant of movement while they are sleeping. Milestones Sessions may be done between six to eight months when babies are sitting up but not yet crawling and again at one year to commemorate babies first birthday.
HOW MANY IMAGES CAN I EXPECT TO SEE FROM MY PHOTO SHOOT?
Stacy will carefully select and edit the top 30 (or more) images from your session. Stacy’s goal is for you to love every image which is why she created several collections that allow you to own all of the images from your session.
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?
Stacy will chat with you about clothing in your phone consultation before your shoot but have fun with this part and try not to over think it (easier said than done). Aim to coordinate without being too “matchy”. As tempting as it is, white shirts and jeans tend to look dated. I mean when is the last time you all dressed alike and went out in public? When we put it like that it seems silly, doesn’t it? Some rules you can use as guidelines are, no white but cream photographs beautiful without the harsh reflection. Textures and layers work great and don’t be afraid to look around in the galleries, on the blog and on our pinterest page for inspiration. Don’t forget to wear something that makes you feel amazing and snap a couple pictures of yourself in the outfit from all angles. Trust me, you’ll be happy you did!
WHAT IF IT RAINS?
We live in Florida and chances are, especially if you schedule an evening shoot in spring or summer, it could rain. Stacy is always happy to reschedule, although she has done some really fun sessions in the rain.
WHAT IS STACY’S STYLE?
Stacy’s style is best describes as genuine, authentic and fun. It is her goal in every session to connect with her subjects and bring out their own unique personalities. She does not believe in heavy editing that will date your pictures, instead she uses beautiful natural lighting and light editing techniques for natural images that can you can enjoy for a lifetime.
DO YOU HAVE A MAKEUP ARTIST AVAILABLE?
Absolutely! Having your hair and makeup done before your session will not only make you look and feel your best, but will also allow you to pamper yourself before your shoot! Stacy works closely with a makeup artist that is known for a very natural look (although she can glam it up if that’s what you are going for). We believe that you should still look like your beautiful self! If you are interested in including makeup services with your session, let Stacy know during your initial phone consultation.
