What should I wear to my portrait session?

We strongly suggest natural, earth-tone colors (blue, green, purple, maroon, teal) or just classic black if you can't decide. We encourage children and adults to avoid extremely bold designs that may distract from your cute faces! We highly discourage vests and bib-overalls for babies until they are standing for most pictures.

What if my child is unhappy and we can’t get any good shots?

Kids have their bad days too – we understand and will absolutely do the very best we can the day of your photography session. However, in the rare case that nothing is working we are more than happy to reschedule for another time or even another date.

Can we reschedule if the weather is bad?

We try our best to scout out a secondary location (indoors or under cover) just in case. However if you have your heart set on the beach in Chicago and there's a downpour all day long, we'll reschedule to another time or even date.

How many outfit changes do you allow?

As many as you change into in the time allotted. However, keep in mind the more outfit changes kids go through, the crankier they tend to become.

How many locations can we go to?

As many locations as we can run/drive/fly to in the time allotted.

Do you have studio backdrops for indoor shots?

Absolutely! We have a large background stand and many different solid colors to choose from!If you have a special request, let us know a few months in advance and we will do our best to accommodate that!

My question wasn’t on this list. What do I do?
