It depends on the time of year. January thru April books about 2 weeks out. May through December books about 4-6 weeks out.
I prefer to shoot maternity photos between 32 - 36 weeks of pregnancy. I want you to have a nice round belly at the time of the shoot.
Please reach out to me for my special guide to help you prepare for this beautiful portrait session! Email KKrafchak@KriskrafPhotography.com
It goes without saying, but children should be fed, rested, and healthy for our session. Hungry, tired or sick children do not make happy subjects. While we're on the topic, this applies to everyone, adults included. It is not uncommon to reschedule shoots due to sickness or weather related problems - there is NO CHARGE to reschedule. As always, as much advance notice as possible is appreciated. There is, however, a reschedule fee of $100 once a session has begun, so please make sure you're bringing healthy kids to their photoshoot.
Parents of small children, don't be alarmed if I ask you to move out-of-sight...occasionally I will ask parents to step out of view, if photographing small children (who sometimes behave better when parents are out of sight.)
If you are concerned about the weather, please call or text me (734-751-8282). If the weather looks questionable, I will always call as early as possible the morning of. Overcast and chilly does not typically kill a shoot, but it depends on the subject being photographed as well. And yes, I shoot all winter long - outdoors...in the snow. We live in Michigan, what did you expect!
Absolutely no cameras or video cameras allowed during sessions. (That’s what you’re paying me for,) The only exception to this rule is when a senior wishes to bring theirs for a photo prop. Thank you, in advance, for honoring this request
Of course! I sell several digital options that work for most budgets and needs.
Low-resolution watermarked files (for use with Facebook or emailing, etc)
Full-resolution session CD for those interested in archiving their session files
Two to Three weeks after your photo-shoot Ill send you a email with your personnel link to your online photo gallery, where you can take the time to view your photos and order your photos or custom photo produces online.
