Before your session, you can expect to receive an 2 emails: a contract that will need to be read, e-signed & returned prior to your session and an email containing FAQs to answer any questions you may have! Please feel free to reach out to me directly with any questions you may still have regarding your session! PLEASE ARRIVE TO YOUR SESSION ON TIME with your face masks! I cannot stress this enough. Due to the nature of mini sessions, I won't have any additional time to add to your session, so if you are late, that will be cutting into your own time and your session will end at the time previously stated on your contract. Please remove any items in front pockets or any hair ties/rubber bands that may be around your wrist.
During your session, your only requirement is to relax and have fun! 2020 has been a hard year for us all and I want this to be a fun experience for you and your family! I will be guiding you through your session and assisting with posing, so no worries! If you have any photo requests, please let me know beforehand so that I know to incorporate them into your session in a timely manner.
After your session, I will be just as excited to deliver your pictures back to you, as you will be to receive them! I will return your pictures in an online gallery within 10 days of your session. You will be receiving an email from Rebecca with your card template. From there, you are able to download and print your cards with whichever company you choose! We will have all files back to you in enough time to take advantage of any Black Friday/Cyber Monday specials that your printer may be offering!
Thank you for booking your holiday session with me! I can't wait to photograph you and your family! <3 Please feel free to contact me directly with any questions!
Your photos will be delivered to you within 10 days of your session date! I want to have these back to my clients in plenty of time so they can take advantage of any Black Friday/ Cyber Monday specials
Will there be props?
Due to COVID, props will not be provided. We want to keep all clients as safe as possible! However, you are more than welcome to bring your own from home! Some fun prop ideas include: ornaments, cozy blankets (just make sure the color and/or print coordinates with your outfits!), present boxes, or even some mistletoe!)
What should we wear?
Wear colors that will compliment the card template you are choosing or go with a more neutral palette! Everybody doesn't need to be wearing the exact same outfit, but avoid to many colors and prints. I would recommend limiting outfits to no more than 2 prints and/or no more than 2 to 3 coordinating colors. Layers, textures and accessories are a fun way to add interest to your outfits, as well!
How many people can I include in my session?
Due to COVID, sessions will be limited to a 10 person maximum.
Where should I get my holiday cards printed?
While you are free to print your photo cards anywhere, I highly recommend zazzle.com! Their cards come out very true to color and they usually run great promotions! Another great option is mpix.com! Both allow you to print your custom card by choosing the custom template option.
Can I print my photos?
Yes! Your price includes printing rights and your files will allow you to print up to an 11"x14". Any larger prints will need to be ordered through me directly. While your photos are ideal for your holiday cards, I know there are clients who would also like to print their photos to display in their homes or share with family! I would highly recommend printing your photos at our local professional print lab, Cottrill's Landmark Art, located at 1304 Celebration Blvd, Florence, SC 29501. They offer beautiful prints on Luster paper, as well as custom framing. Prints are less expensive when purchased through me directly.
Can I include my dog(s)?
Yes! Dogs are just as important as the human members of your family and may be included in your session! (Please be courteous and keep your dog(s) on a leash, as well as pick up after them!) If you wish to have some photos with them, as well as some without, please bring a trusted friend or family member with you who can hold their leash for the remainder of your session!
What if it rains?
We have worked hard to choose a location that will provide us with cover if inclimate weather should arise! If there is rain, we will still be holding our mini sessions, unless advised otherwise.
