Question & Answer

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

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 beautful 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 up by July/September.

How do I book a session?

Very simple!  You may email or call  us and we determine what type of session best fits your needs.  We then choose a date and time that will work for both of us.  After that, you will receive a session contract and invoice.  When your invoice is paid and contract is signed, you have booked your session!

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 condtions before your session.  Within the contract is also a model release.  This gives me permission, if you wish, to use your images in advertising on my Facebook page, Instagram and/or as studio samples.

How do I pay for my session?

A non-refundable 50$ deposite will secure your session.  The remaining balance is due before your session.  You will receive an invoice through paypal.  You may also pay with a check.  The check must clear prior to your session.

**Sessions are not delivered until you are paid in full

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. 

What do I wear

Choosing an outfit for an entire family may be the toughest decision you will make!  Do not worry!  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 botique wear.  This includes designer rompers, bonnets, wraps and headbands. 

Where can I print my images?

Every session includes a print release form.  You may print at a lab of your choice, although I only garantee 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.

How and when do I get my images?

Each photo in your collection is choosen by my artistic experience and hand edited.  My typical return time is one week, but may take up to 2-3 weeks during the busy 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 or CD may be purchased at an additional cost if needed.

What type of props do you use for newborn sessions?

All Little Bear Photography props come form professional newborn shops that specialize in the highest quility of products.  I only use the best produts 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 .
