Portrait Sessions last between 1-1.5 hours on location (mini-sessions 20-30 minutes) this can be a location of your choice or one recommended by me. We will have a pre-session consultation to discuss details of the shoot and my goal is for the session itself to be relaxed and fun for everyone!
Please allow 2-3 hours for Newborns. We will take time for feedings, changes, etc. Newborn sessions are ideally scheduled within the first two weeks after birth and are held in my home studio where there is easy access to good natural light and a variety of props. Should you prefer to schedule your newborn session in the comfort of your own home, please schedule an in-home consultation prior to the session and add on an additional $50 prop and equipment carrying fee.
What to Wear
Keep it simple and classic, avoiding busy patterns and prints. Layering clothing is a great option too. For family portraits, coordinating clothing selections is also highly recommended and will result in the best images. Your look should be…Timeless!
After the session
Within 24 hours of your session I will post a Facebook ‘Sneak Peek’ (2-4 images). 2-3 weeks after your session you will receive a link to view your personal online gallery of creatively edited images. You are welcome to share this gallery with family and friends! Your gallery will be available to view your images and place your order, either online or through me. Orders will be processed once payment has been received in full. I accept credit cards, cash, checks or money orders, payable to Monica Stanley Photography. There is a $25 fee for all returned checks.
Images that are purchased will be archived for one year. Unordered images will be purged from gallery within 8 weeks of your session.
Please allow 1-2 weeks for delivery of prints and 3-4 weeks for specialty items, after payment has been received.
If you still have questions, please feel free to give me a call!
