Do we get the digital images?
Because we prefer to serve our clients and their needs individually, everything is purchased after the session. The print/product credit included in your session fee may be used towards anything in our product lineup, including our digital options.
How does the print/product credit work?
The print/product credit can be used toward anything in our product lineup. Check out our Lookbook to see what clients have done in the past.

What is a Snappy Session?
We hold snappy sessions on a semi-regular basis. They are usually set on one Saturday each month and are themed to fit the season/holiday. The session is usually 15 minutes. Clients stay at the studio after the session to make their selections and purchases. Image choices are edited and clients receive their order within 1-3 weeks depending on the season. In 2017, our themes include Valentine's Day, Snow, Spring, Mother's Day, Summer, Fall and Holiday. Session fees start at $150.
What is a Bitty Session?
Bitty Sessions are available January-April. They are weekday only, studio sessions for one child. Each session is 15 minutes and background/set up is customized to match the child's outfit choice. Like the Snappy Session, clients stick around after their session to view their image options and make a same day purchase. Clients receive their order within 1-2 weeks. Bitty Session are $75.
When should I schedule?
The sooner, the better! We recommend booking your session at least 2-4 months in advance. Weekends and peak times of the year book up very quickly.
Will you come to our house?
Yes! We love in-home lifestyle sessions and this is an opportunity for those scheduling Luxe Sessions. Keep in mind that we use primarily natural lighting. Large windows, white/light walls are ideal for in-home sessions. A pre-session meeting at your home may be required to determine if lighting is appropriate.
Will you travel?
Yes. Travel within 15 miles of Westlake, OH is included. Outside of 15 miles, clients may book the Luxe Session. For travel over 2 hours or out of state we require 4 sessions to be booked so gather your friends and we'll book a day or two of fun!
What do you do in digital retouching?
Each photo is carefully evaluated for composition, tone and facial expressions. Any unwanted elements–such as a stray hair or a piece of lint–are removed and facial blemishes are touched up. Color rendering is determined for what works best with the photo. Lastly, additional color enhancements are added as needed. For adults, we smooth wrinkles and fine lines are provide additional modifications upon request. We are meticulous in our editing process leaving you with gorgeously crafted images.
