Children & Family Photography FAQ’s

What should we wear?

Wear something that reflects your style and personality but keep in mind that earth tones and solid colors are best vs distracting patterns, this will allow focus on your expression and not your sweater.  Props are also great! Is it Fall? Wear a hat…Is it Winter? wear a scarf… Is it Summer?… then bring matching sunglasses. You get the idea! Once you are booked with Peek-a-boo Portraits, you will receive a welcome guide which is packed with useful tips!

Do you offer print packages?

Yes! Print packages are available in addition to the digital files that you will already receive. Keep in mind that you always receive the print rights to your final edited photos, however we always suggest purchasing professional quality prints from your online gallery.

It’s raining, is our shoot cancelled?

Not necessarily, downpours may be a reason to change a date if you have a specific outdoor location that you love…. a light sprinkle is no problem. Mini Sessions are ALWAYS rain or shine because we have a secondary indoor backup location available.

What happens when the children do not cooperate for the photo shoot?

We know working with little ones can be tough and takes a lot of patience which we luckily have, however from time to time we can be faced with a situation when it is just not working. Sometimes if we continue to try working with an already upset child/children they will only become more upset. If this occurs, please understand that the full session fee is still due and we will do our best to schedule you for a re-shoot at 50% off.

How far in advance should I book?

Family Sessions book up to 2 months in advance. If you are looking to schedule your session for a weekend then it is best to schedule as soon as you can! Please contact us to see if your date is available.

When is the best time of day to schedule a shoot?

We usually recommend early morning (for those early risers) or 1-2 hours before sunset. The lighting is best at these times and usually works well for most. We are always willing to schedule a shoot around our clients schedule but try our best to avoid the mid-day sun.

I have (my child has) a blemish, Can you remove it?

Yes! Minor retouching is included with your final edited photos. We will remove small blemishes on images if necessary and when possible.
