DO I GET THE RIGHTS TO MY PICTURES?
YES! From our simple ‘Mini’ Sessions, all the way up to our Fairy Tale Wedding Package, you ALWAYS get the rights to YOUR photographs. Why shouldn’t you, you are in them!
HOW LONG UNTIL I GET TO SEE MY PICTURES?
You get a sneak peek within 48 hours (unless otherwise stated). Normal Photography sessions take about 4 weeks to get back to you. Weddings on the other hand, require a lot of attention, so they take about 15 weeks.
CAN I GET A RUSH ORDER IF I REALLY, NEED MY PICTURES?
Yes! For $85.00 (depending on the package) we can get the pictures to you within the week, or if needed sooner. We can talk details at your session if you are in need or a rush order!
HOW MUCH IS THE DEPOSIT TO HOLD MY SPOT IN YOUR BOOKS? WHEN DO I HAVE TO PAY IT!?
It’s a $50 non-refundable retainer fee to make sure your spot is saved. The $50 goes toward your payment total and must be paid within the 24 hours that you made the appointment!
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK AN APPOINTMENT?
It’s best to book about 3-4 weeks from the day you have in mind! Sometimes we have spots open up during the week, so please don’t hesitate to call the week of and see if we can work with you!
I BOOKED AN APPOINTMENT… NOW WHAT DO I WEAR?!
Have no fear, Dakota will send you an email with a list of suggestions on things to wear and bring to your session! We also recommend to check out Pinterest!Preparation: REST…Getting a good night’s rest the night before, it will reflect on your face, your overall appearance and your attitude. By ensuring that everyone is well rested and well fed will make for a nice relaxing session! If your child is comfortable and relaxed, the distractions of a portrait session won’t stress them out, and in turn won’t stress you out. If a child is not feeling well, it’s better to reschedule. Feel free to bring water or clear juices/soda and a treat like a hard candy or something that isn’t messy. Favorite toys to play with are always good.
WHEN SHOULD I SCHEDULE MY MATERNITY SESSION?
Maternity sessions are best held during the last two months of pregnancy. When photos are taken any time before 28 weeks. Being comfortable is the most important part of it all.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I SCHEDULE A NEWBORN SESSION?
For newborns it is never too early to book a newborn session. Due to the unpredictable nature of newborns, your newborn session is reserved based on your estimated due date. The baby’s due date is put in our calendar, so we have an idea when you are going to be ready to ‘pop’ and then as soon as baby arrives, we ask that you contact Sunflower right away. A solid session date is then set at that time. Your reserved newborn session is to take place within 10 days of baby’s actual date of birth. If you are given an induction or c-section date, the actual session date can be booked in advance.
WHAT IF MY BABY IS ALREADY BORN?
If your baby is already born, under 10 days of age and you wish to schedule a session, please reach out to schedule your appointment as soon as you can!
