FAQ

 

Q: HOW LONG IS A LIFESTYLE SESSION?

A : Lifestyle sessions are up to 45 minutes. Newborn sessions are up to 90 minutes (to allow for feeding breaks / changing diapers, etc). If your session is taking place indoors, your session will be scheduled between 9 am - 5 pm. If you shoot will be at an outdoor location, your session will be scheduled 1.5 hours before sunset (so we have the best light of the day).

Q: WHERE SHOULD WE TAKE OUR PHOTOS AT?

A : Lifestyle sessions take place at a variety of locations including the Brittany Bekas studio, outdoor locations (weather permitting) and inside your family home (perfect for newborn sessions). Not sure what spot is best for you? I have an amazing list of places that are gorgeous outdoor locations. For newborn sessions, I recommend the session take place inside your home or at the studio.

Q: WHAT IF IT RAINS? 

A : I watch (i.e. stalk) the weather the week of your session. 24 hours before our shoot, I will email you if the weather looks iffy. If it looks like rain, we will reschedule your session for another day, or I am happy to relocate your session to the studio.

Q: WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR? 

A : I have an amazing style guide that I will send you prior to your session that gives you a ton of advice. When in doubt, neutrals tend to look best on camera and work well in any location. Try to dress your family in a coordinated style, but avoid looking matchy-matchy. The best way to do this is to pick complimentary colors and styles for your crew.

Q: WHAT IF MY KIDS WON'T SMILE + DO NOT LISTEN?

A : My style of shooting allows for your kids to just be them and have fun. I encourage my families to run around with their kids, blow bubbles and have tickle fights. I want to capture you and your family as the most authentic version of them, so while I will try my best to get one perfect photo of everyone smiling, the photos you will treasure the most will be the little moments that show your family's true personalities. 

Q : WHEN WILL WE GET TO SEE THE PHOTOS FROM OUR SESSION?

A: You will have your image collection within 3 weeks of your session.

Q : DO WE HAVE TO ORDER PRINTS THROUGH YOU?

A : I highly recommend ordering prints / albums through the studio, but it is not required. The difference in quality is huge when it comes to ordering through a professional lab, so I do encourage clients to order prints through the studio. Your session includes a print release, so you are free to order prints elsewhere.
