WHAT IS YOUR STYLE OF PHOTOGRAPHY? Heather loves to capture natural and creative images which will be cherished pieces in your family for years to come. Simplicity, expression, emotion, relationships and love are all conveyed in her images.
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK A SESSION WITH YOU? CMP takes a very limited number of sessions each month. Because of this, we suggest you call as soon as you know you would like to book a session with us as our schedule can fill up quickly. You can also easily start the booking process online and we will follow up with you to finalize any details and answer further questions. Click here to book your session online.
DO YOU SHOOT IN THE STUDIO OR OUTDOORS?
Heather shoots both outdoors and in the studio. As a guideline, typically shoots with newborns are best in the studio. This provides a safe and comfortable environment for your baby. All other shoots can be done either outdoors or in the studio.
HOW LONG WILL MY SESSION TAKE?
Please allow 2-4 hours for your newborn session.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
Unless there is anything specific that is significant to you, do not feel as though you need to bring anything to the shoot. Just a sleepy baby!
WHAT CLOTHING SHOULD I WEAR?
We typically tell our parents to dress light and comfy. It is warm a *85 degrees* in the studio and we want you to be comfortable. If we are doing family/parent shots with the newborn, there is a restroom that you can get dressed and ready. Simple clothing choices are best for the studio. (Black or white)
WHAT IS A WALL COLLECTION?
These are our absolute favorite! They are collections of images that are hung together to make a unique statement. These are one of our signature specialties and are so popular because they help turn a house into a home…artfully. We offer a variety of collections which are displayed throughout our studio. We will make collection suggestions to help tell your own personal story based on your home and the priorities of your shoot.
DO YOU SELL DIGITAL FILES?
Yes! All CMP sessions come with digital files on a custom USB. We do strive to provide you amazing professional products to show off your images in your home as well.
HOW MUCH DOES THIS COST?
There is a huge range of what people will spend on artwork of their family. Because we believe each family has unique needs, we offer packages and a la carte options. The main reason why the majority of our clients choose us as their photographer is because of our specialty in creating custom wall art and heirloom albums for their home. We take pride and extra creativity in creating products that make a statement while telling your story. We are not the least expensive studio nor the most expensive studio in town but we are dedicated to how important all the little details are to you for this special time in your life.
WHAT PAYMENT METHODS DO YOU ACCEPT?
Cash, Check and Credit Card (fees apply).
HOW AND WHEN DO I GET TO SEE MY IMAGES AND PLACE MY ORDER?
The most important decisions in the portrait process occur during your ordering appointment. We take great pride in providing our clients with a personalized, interactive and fun way to place your order. We will schedule your ordering appointment approximately 3-4 weeks after your portrait session to help you in this decision process. It is very important that all decision makers are present during this time and that you come prepared with any measurements of wall spaces you are interested in working with. At this appointment, we will present your images in a gorgeous slideshow and then will help you select the products suitable for your home, office and for gifts for friends and family. We feel this process is the most helpful and a treasured service we can offer our clients.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET MY ORDER?
Your order will be completed approximately 2-3 weeks after we receive your payment. You may pick your order up from the studio or we can schedule a delivery service. If you need it sooner for any reason, please communicate this with us and we will see what we can do. Depending on our vendors, there may be a small rush fee.
HOW LONG WILL YOU KEEP MY FILES?
Non-ordered images will be held for an additional 45 days after your session date. After 45 days, non-ordered images will be discarded and all ordered images will be archived in multiple locations for no additional fees.
