Thank you for your interest in a portrait session with Saundra Karol Photography! Before your session, I will send you information on how to best prepare to make your experience as zen as possible. Some additional info can be found below.
Your session will take place on-location, meaning your home, a park, or another agreed upon place. I work with both available light as well as studio lighting and will bring what I need with me. If I am photographing your newborn, I will bring a couple of items along, such as simple knits and blankets, but please note that my work is not prop heavy. I prefer the focus to be on your baby most of all!
If we are photographing in your home, I will ask to take a look around so that I can scout for the best lighting.
Keep in mind that every home is perfect for photographs. I have worked in all types of spaces and homes and will make yours work as well!
No matter the type of session, my goal is to capture a variety of beautiful images while creating an experience for you that is fun and easy-going.
Most maternity, child, and family portrait sessions are between 1 and 2 hours long.
Newborn sessions are usually between 2 and 4 hours long to allow for feedings, changings, and a variety of images, including close-ups of tiny details and full portraits.
Proofing and Ordering Session
I am with you every step of the way! Between 10 and 14 days following your session, you will be able to view your hand-selected and individually edited proofs during an in-person proofing and ordering session. You can expect to view a minimum of 30 images.
All proofs from your session are printed, allowing for a tactile experience and an easier comparison method. During this time, I will guide you through ordering and will answer any questions you may have in choosing your selections. This is also when you will be asked to place your order.
Following the proofing and ordering session, an online gallery will be available for two weeks so you can share your beautiful portraits with friends and family.
The wait is always worth it! Your newly selected prints and products will be delivered to you either in-person or via FedEx, depending on location and other circumstances. Please allow between 4 to 6 weeks for your order to arrive. Albums and coffee table books may take longer. When you unwrap your order, be sure to have some tissues handy!
