I often receive emails asking similar questions. Not that I mind, but you may find if helpful to read through and answer any questions you may have.
Where are you located?
I am located in Dover, New Hampshire.
How do I book a session?
Please use the contact form on the main menu. I will respond within 24 hours to answer any questions and an invoice through Paypal for a non-refundable retainer to secure your session date.
When should I schedule my newborn session?
A key to a successful newborn session and achieving babies in all their squishy goodness is to have the session within the first 18 days after birth. Newborns tend to sleep less and it becomes more difficult to capture those womb-like poses after the 18 day mark. Although, I have successfully photographed babies up to a month old with a little extra time and effort to achieve newborn like poses.
How far in advance should I schedule my newborn session?
I encourage families to book newborn sessions a minimum of a month before due date. Your due date will go on the calendar and we will be in contact to schedule an exact date/time once baby makes his/her arrival.
What is included with your Kimberly Royal Photography session?
With your session fee you will receive your fully booked shoot, a link to your gallery for the digital download of all of the edited, high resolution, print ready images, and a release/information form from me that will allow you to have the images printed.
Do you offer print packages?
No. I give you the digital files to print at the print house of your choosing. However, I *strongly* recommend options where you can print your images.
Although Kimberly Royal Photography releases the right for you to print your photos I retain the copyright for all the images.
How many images will I get from my sitting?
Although we do not guarantee a certain number of images we do set a standard for our sessions and that standard is outlined in each session’s description – please refer to the investment page for the details of your specific session. Using these set standards we will do black and white conversions resulting in double the amount of final images on your Kimberly Royal Photography folder. Some shoots we are able to produce more final images – but please remember that at Kimberly Royal Photography we only put out the very best from your session.
Who can come to the session?
Only those being photographed are invited to the session. We understand new moms sometimes need a little help – please let us know ahead of time if you will be bringing a relative to the session with you who will not be in the images.
What is not allowed at the sessions?
I ask that no other photography take place during your session. No cameras or cell phone pics of any kind. I like to keep the setups and processes a little secret until I am able to process the images to reveal for your sneak peeks and galleries. Thank you for understanding.
What if I have to cancel the day of?
Things happen – kids get sick – kids don’t nap or were up all night – If this is to happen – please don’t “try” to make the shoot – it will just wind up with us having to call it a day and you will wind up with not so lovely pictures (and we hate that more than anything). You have one make up day to reschedule your session. Your retainer fee is non refundable for the day of the scheduled shoot and unfortunately, cannot be applied to a second make up day or future session. Another session will need to be booked.
Retainers & Final Payment
Retainer Fees are non-refundable and due upon booking your session to hold your spot. If your retainer fee is not received within the time frame specified on your invoice your spot will be opened back up. Retainer fees cannot be applied to future sessions should you need to cancel.
Final Payment is due at the time of your session.
