What does my session fee pay for?
The session fee covers my time during the session, the post-production editing work, and your private online gallery. Sessions tend to last one to two hours. I leave it up to the little ones to let me know when they’re done modeling for me!
Where will my session take place?
I travel to YOU! That may mean the session takes place at your home or maybe another favorite place. Parks, beaches, libraries, and even cupcake stores make great locations!
What should we wear?
You do NOT need to be matchy-matchy. For the photographs to look their best, everyone in them needs to be comfortable! If your daughter hates dresses, let her pick out her own funky outfit. If your son loves wearing a cape around the house, let him wear it in the photos. And if the weather is right, bare feet are always adorable!
When is the best time to schedule newborn photographs?
The best time is whenever mom is ready! A lot of my newborn sessions take place within the first two weeks, but don’t count yourself out if you miss that “deadline”. Babies are newborns for the first couple of months!
Can you retouch boo-boos?
The short answer? Yes! If your child has a scratch, I am happy to remove it! Same thing goes for blemishes. Since these are only temporary, there’s no need for them to stay in your photographs.
When will my photos be ready?
Your photos will be available for viewing in your private online gallery about two weeks after your session. Final print orders will be delivered within one to two weeks of ordering.
Do we own the copyright if we purchase the files?
Margaret Belanger Photography owns the copyright to all images, including the proofs, even if you purchase the digital files. When you purchase files, you receive permission to reproduce them (print them, blog them, email them to family members, or even make an album) without having to go through me.
Do you archive session image files?
I archive the images you see in your gallery for one year. After that, sessions are purged from the system in order to make room for new clients.
Can our family dog/cat/lizard/tortoise be in the photos?
Of course! Fur babies (and all other pets) are an important part of the family! I am happy to incorporate them into the session!
