WHATS THE BEST TIME TO SCHEDULE MY MATERNITY & NEWBORN PORTRAITS?

NOW THIS IS AN IMPORTANT QUESTION, SPECIFICALLY FOR NEWBORN PORTRAITS. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT THE NEWBORN PORTRAITS ARE DONE UNDER 6 WEEKS, WITHING THE FIRST 10 DAYS OF LIFE IS EVEN BETTER!  HOWEVER, WE UNDERSTAND LIFE IS BUSY WITH A NEW BABY, THIS IS WHY WE WANT TO ASSURE YOU WE CAN STILL TAKE STUNNING PHOTOS WELL AFTER THE 10 DAY TIME PERIOD.  FOR MATERNITY PORTRAITS WE USUALLY LIKE TO DO THOSE BETWEEN 7 AND 8 MONTHS. IF YOUR FURTHER ALONG, DON’T WORRY! WE HAVE EVEN DONE MATERNITY PORTRAITS AT THE HOSPITAL HOURS BEFORE A C-SECTION!

MY CHILD HAS A SCRATCH ON HIS FACE, WHAT CAN I DO? 

DON’T WORRY! WE HAVE ALL THE LATEST RETOUCHING TOOLS THAT CAN FIX IT. THERE’S NOT EVEN A CHARGE FOR IT.  NO CHARGE ITEMS ARE THINGS SUCH AS: BLEMISHES, WRINKLES, FLAKY SKIN AND MORE.

CAN I ORDER ONLINE? 

ONCE YOUR IMAGES ARE PROCESSED WE WILL PLACE YOUR PORTRAITS IN AN ONLINE PASSWORD PROTECTED GALLERY FOR ORDERING PURPOSES.  YOU CAN STAY COMFY AT HOME WHILE BROWSING THROUGH YOUR PHOTOS AND CHOOSING YOUR FAVORITES. THIS IS ALSO GREAT WAY FOR YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO VIEW AND ORDER THEIR OWN PORTRAITS.

I HAVE TO RESCHEDULE, IS THAT A PROBLEM? 

NOT AT ALL, WE UNDERSTAND WITH KIDS THINGS COME UP. WE JUST ASK THAT YOU LET US KNOW AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
