Question & Answer

Is this your first time hiring a professional photographer?  Look no further for all of your answers!

How do I book a session?

Very simple!  Once you have decided what type of session 
you would like, you will receive a session contract and invoice.  When both of those are complete, you have booked your session!

How soon should you book your session?

It's never too early to schedule your session!  There is nothing more disappointing than missing out on a beautiful season or sale!  I typically need a 3-week notice for family, child and senior sessions.  You should book your newborn session 2-3 months BEFORE your due date.  Newborn sessions are typically done within the first 5-12 days after birth.

*October -December book up VERY quickly!  These months are typically booked filled by July/September.*

How do I pay for my session?

Sessions fees must be paid in full prior to your session.  Your session is not booked until you are paid in full.  If you are paying with a check, the check must clear 5 days prior to your session.

What do I wear

Don't let selecting outfits stress you out! I am here to help!   I want  you to look your best!  You can ask for my feedback every step of the way!  Some session packages come with a bonus style guide.
Newborn sessions come with the use of our hand-selected boutique wear.  This includes designer rompers, bonnets, wraps and headbands. 

I scheduled my session, now what?

Once your session is scheduled, we will then start the pre-session consultation.  We will talk about your style, your home decor, printing wants and needs, session location and time. 

How and when do I get my images?

Why do I have to sign a contract?

The session contract puts our working relationship in writing.  This way, we can resolve any questions about your session terms and conditions before your session.  Within the contract is also a model release.  This gives me permission, if you wish, to use your images for advertising on my Facebook page, Instagram, Website and/or as studio samples.

Where can I print my images?

Every session includes a print release form.  You may print at a lab of your choice, although I guarantee the quality of your products from professional labs.   As stated in your contract, I own all the copyrights to the images.  This means, any screen-shots of images in a gallery, prior to making your image selection, is in violation of your contract.

What type of props do you use for newborn sessions?

All Little Bear Photography props come from professional newborn shops that specialize in the highest quality of products.  I only use the best products when it comes to your little one.  Some of my favorite shops are Snippets Props , Itsy Bitsy Blooms , Red Owl Props and  Handmade by Yarn Over . All of my high-quality backdrops are from Lemon Drop backdrops and Peek Prints  
Each photo in your collection is chosen by my artistic experience and are hand edited.  My typical return time is one week but may take up to 3 weeks during peak season (October-December).  All sessions are delivered via digital download.  Any products may be picked up at my studio or delivered via UPS at your cost.  USB may be purchased at an additional cost if needed.
