| Portrait Session FAQ |
DO YOU TRAVEL FOR SESSIONS?
Of course! I LOVE traveling, new places, and any adventure thrown my way!
WHERE WILL OUR SESSION TAKE PLACE?
Indoors, outdoors, wherever YOUR special place is!
Take me to a field, a beach, downtown, or even your home.
But "I'm not Joann Gaines, there's nothing special about my house." Stop right there! Your family grows, plays, and laughs in your home. One day your kids will be grown and out of the house, so let's make memories while they are home!
WHAT TIME IS BEST?
I always tell clients golden hour or sunrise for outdoor sessions. The sun is either rising or sinking and the lightening is always the best.
(Seriously, sunrise sessions are all the heart eye emojis!)
For indoor sessions we want the most nature light coming in which is usually late morning, early afternoon.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Whatever you are comfortable in!
I love solids, neutrals, pops of color, throw dad in wearing a pattern, or mom wearing a floral shirt. Keep it simple, try to avoid logos, super busy patterns, and matching, instead try to compliment each other. Check out my what to wear page.
DO I HAVE OPTIONS FOR PAYING MY SESSION FEE?
Yes! I work with clients of all budgets. Don't ever let your budget hold you back from photos. I am here to help if needed. Option 1. Session fee is paid in full within 48 hours of booking your session.
If you are unable to pay your session in full please let me know and we can do a payment plan! Yes I accept payment plans and many of my clients take advantage of payment plans especially if their session is months away.
Option 2. Payment plans! They can be weekly, biweekly, or monthly- whatever is best to fit your needs.
Payment plans are also great if you'd like to purchase products!
Just ask about a payment plan and we can get you started!
WE'VE BOOKED! NOW WHAT?
Yay! I can't wait to work with you and your family!
You will receive an invoice via email for your non-refundable booking fee. This will secure your date and time for your session.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING MY SESSION?
We will spend 45 minutes to an hour together. My biggest tip is to relax and have fun! Of course we will grab those "everyone smile at the camera" poses, but I love to capture your family truly interacting with each other. I love hearing those little giggles because you are tickling your little one. These truly bring out the best smiles and best photos, along with making new memories! I'll probably ask you to dance with your loved one, whisper secrets, and have your children give you the biggest hugs ever!
MY SESSION IS OVER NOW WHAT?
I post sneak peeks on Facebook, so be sure to LIKE Alyssa Vandiver Photography on Facebook so I can tag you in your photos! Your gallery will be delivered about 2-3 weeks after your session. You will receive a link to view and share your images. Along with a pin to download your gallery.
