Our version of a mini session offers you a shorter session which is great for annual family photos, christmas cards and families with young kids who tire quickly. We offer these sessions during the Fall and Spring and they are usually outdoor locations.
Includes 10 images
Our full session offers you around an hour or two with us. We use the extra time for location and outfit changes and this is ideal for high school seniors or even maternity sessions. These sessions can be held in studio or in an outdoor location.
Includes 15 images
When is my payment due?
Your booking fee is due in full at the time of booking and is non-refundable.
We do not take a deposit. We are holding this time in our calendar specifically for you.
Reschedules may be an additional fee. We reserve your session time just for you.
Payment for images is due at the time of ordering. Prints and products are ordered immediately after therefore we are unable to refund once products are ordered. Digital galleries are paid prior to download and due to the nature of digital products, no refunds can be given.
We do our best to cover all your questions beforehand and do our best to be sure you are happy with your purchases.
Where will our session be? Do you travel?
We are located between Little Elm and Aubrey, Texas. Most of our sessions take place within 20 minutes of this area. We do not typically travel, however we are happy to consider it particularly if you'd like a specialized or styled session. In these cases, our session fee remains the same but additional travel costs may be needed depending on location. Use our contact form to reach out!
What can we expect on our session day?
Our goal is to make your experience fun! This is especially important if we have younger kids in the session. We ask you to arrive at the location 10-15 minutes early. Some locations may require a short walk. We will discuss this with you in advance to help you plan. We suggest bringing a book for favorite toy that is okay to be in your photos for kids or pets. You may also bring a quilt to sit on or if you prefer, we can provide one of ours.
When will we get our photos?
We work to make your images the best by editing within our style. This can take up to 2-4 weeks depending on the time of year. If you need your images sooner than 2 weeks, please let us know. A rush fee may apply but we always do our best to keep your costs down.
How many images are included?
Each session type differs a bit but on average, we provide 10 images with your session. There are options to purchase print and product packages, ala carte or a full gallery after your session.
What if we are running late?
We hope this doesn't come up! We will give you details on your location in advance so you can map the drive time. Keep in mind, we often shoot about an hour before sunset and this is often during busy traffic times. Plan alternate routes in case of heavy traffic or accidents. If unavoidable lateness occurs, we will do our best to either complete the session in the remaining time (this may result in less images) or we can reschedule for an additional fee.
What if I want additional editing?
We edit all of our images within our style. We typically do not do any additional editing once your gallery is complete however if you notice a small blemish we missed, let us know. We do not edit out phones, hairbands on your wrist, or dirt on your child's face. We do our best to ask you to remove these types of things prior to shooting. We do not adjust your size (we love you how you are!), change colors of your clothing, or smooth out wrinkles. We can help in advance by suggesting talented hair and makeup artists to make you look your best, help guide you in clothing choices (nothing too tight or too loose!) and urge you to iron or send clothing to the dry cleaners. Wrinkles happen during lifestyle session. This is life, and we are here to capture it. With that said, if there is a must have edit you request, we are happy to accommodate most of these for an additional fee per image.
It's so hot outside!
We do not shoot in extreme temperatures. We try to shoot on the coolest possible days. I do not want anyone sweating through their clothes or melting makeup and humid hair. Keep these things in mind as you prep for your session. I can offer advice if it's needed on how to help prevent some of these issues.
During your session, we will social distance to the best of our ability. You may choose to wear a mask (or not). Masks are not work during shooting by the photographer so you can better hear me to help prompt you for your images. I sometimes shoot closer than 6 feet. If you are sick in any way, even if you are sure it's not covid, we ask that you contact us to reschedule.
Do you have more questions?
We are always happy to answer any additional questions. We can be reached by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or through our contact form.
“We love all of our family sessions we have done with Kat. She was very patient, fun and creative with my 3 boys. She knows how to capture those special shots and works fast to capture shots of kids. She does multiple poses, but also captures action shots. If you are looking for a session, I would definitely give her a call.
