WHAT TO EXPECT

I understand that life is busy

and, at times, downright hectic.

That is why I try to make things simple.

My sessions are straightforward,

easy, and relaxed. 

"We've used Samantha for family photos on two occasions. Each experience with Samantha has been fantastic. She has a true talent for composition and makes each picture really pop. Most importantly, Samantha knows how to photograph kids, keeping them engaged and entertained. It's amazing how many great photos she captures so quickly!"

FAQ

WHERE WILL MY SESSION BE HELD?

Sessions will be held in your home, one of the many beautiful locations San Antonio has to offer, or my private studio.

*Please note that my studio is only large enough to accomodate families of 6 and under.

HOW LONG WILL MY SESSION LAST?

I do not like putting a time limit on my sessions. I use the children as a gauge of how long they are capable of being photographed. I would recommend allowing about an hour for family sessions and about 30 minutes for child sessions held in studio and about 45 minutes for maternity sessions.

Newborn sessions last about 2-3 hours depending on what kind of look you are going for. 

WHAT IS YOUR PRICING?

Please visit my INVESTMENT page for more detaileld pricing. Sessions will have option to purchase prints and keepsake box for an additional fee.

HOW DO I ORDER MY PRODUCTS AND WHAT IS MY TURNAROUND TIME?

About 10 days after your session your photos will be ready! You will be given a link to an online gallery for viewing. Once you decide which photos you would like to keep I will then send the full resolution files your way. Easy peasy. If you would like to order professional products then I'm your girl! You can place an additional order with me and can expect to recieve your products about 2 weeks after your oder is placed. 

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO BOOK MY SESSION?

The best time to book your maternity session is between 29-36 weeks of your pregnancy *PLEASE NOTE that maternity sessions are only booked when a newborn packaged is booked as well.

Newborns are best photographed between 5-10 days after birth. If you are planning on photographing your newborn with older siblings I like to wait till they are about 15-20 days old.

Family and child sessions are best when children are well rested and not hungry. For more information on this topic please click over to my HOW TO PREPARE page.

DO YOU OFFER MINI SESSIONS?

I offer mini sessions from time to time. It is usually around Christmas time. My mini sessions are just that - they are short and sweet and are for CHILDREN ONLY. 

I do not and will NOT offer family mini sessions. Why? Because it takes me almost the same amount of time for planning, travel, and editing as it does for a regular session. Plus, I want you to have a bunch of photos from the session, not just 5-10. Lining families up back to back for 20 minute sessions at a time would cause me to feel rushed as well as you. Thats just not the way I run my business and I do not think it makes for a good client experience.
