What Does My Creative Fee Pay For?

The Creative Fee pays for my time and talent during the session, post production work, your private online gallery, and your in-person order session.  This fee will not be applied to print purchases. 

When Do I Make My Payments?

The non-refundable creative fee is due upon booking your session.  The payment for prints will be due at the time of the order session.  A session may be cancelled or rescheduled up to 48 hours prior to the session. 

Where Will My Session Take Place?

Sessions will take place at your home or at one of your child's favorite locations.  The sessions are always a relaxed atmosphere and without backdrops.  We do use some lighting equipment. 

How Should We Dress?

Simple clothes and solid colors work best for photographs.  Primary colored polo shirts look great on siblings!  If you have a question about a certain outfit, please feel free to call us to discuss.

Can You Retouch An Image (i.e. dirt on face, wrinkles, etc.)?

Yes, minor professional retouching is including in the session fee.  Clients love this extra feature!

When Will My Photographs Be Ready?

Your pictures will be ready for viewing in your password-protected web gallery a  week after the session.  The gallery will be available for two weeks.  Final print orders will be ready within 4 - 6 weeks.  Albums and Canvases will be ready within 6 to 8 weeks.  Original Kids by Tanya Alexis owns the copyright to all images, including proofs.  Images may not be copied, scanned or reproduced in any way without written permission.  If digital negatives are purchased, you will receive a letter which grants you permission to print the purchased images.

Do You Archive Session Image Files?

Your purchased images are archived for one year.   Unordered images are purged from our systems monthly, in order to make room for new clients.

When Is The Best Time To Book A Session?

At the moment, we are booking weekdays and weekends.  Most sessions are scheduled in the afternoon. or early morning.  Due to the personal nature of each session, we are typically book up quickly (especially in the Fall).  Even though we tend to book up, please feel free to inquire to see if any cancellations or openings have come up.  Ordering sessions are usually booked one to two weeks after your session.  Evenings and weekends are available for ordering sessions.

When Is The Best Time To Schedule Newborn Photographs?

Newborns are best to photograph within the first 2 weeks.  You should plan on booking your newborn session before the baby is born.

What Can I Expect From The Order Session?

You can expect to have your images projected for you on a large screen.  At the time of the session, we will also place any orders you may have.  It is a good idea to brainstorm ahead of time and figure out where you might want your new images to hang.  This will also help in determining what size prints or canvases you order. 

Do You Offer Framing Options?

We offer custom framing.  Please feel free to contact us for further details.
