What exactly is Lifestyle Photography?

Documenting you as you truly are...right now. Lifestyle photography is often candid, honest and unintentional. I believe the pure natural moments, often looked over, are the most treasured as time passes.

What does a Lifestyle portrait session look like?

Prior to the day of your child’s portrait session I will send you a pdf questionnaire to answer questions about what your vision is for the portrait session, what are your child’s personality traits, the age of your child, where the session will take place etc. On the day of the session we will meet up at the desired location and essentially document life as it’s happening. For example, a chosen park, I would follow your child around the park capturing his/her story. Natural child photography happens in a relaxed and casual environment where children can be themselves and simply play.

What to wear for your lifestyle portrait session?

It is always best to wear clothes that feel and look great on as well as compliment the personality of your child. Choosing subtle or even neutral tones that compliment is a good rule to follow. If needed, you can refer to my The Art of Dressing board created on my Pinterest page: The Art of Dressing Some great clothing stores: H&M, Garnet Hill, Boden Kids/Boden Teens, Hanna Andersson, Mod Cloth, Crewcuts, Urban Outfitters and etsy.

How far in advance do I need to book my lifestyle portrait session?

Clients can typically book from 1-6 months in advance.

What kind of deposit do you require?

I require half of the session fee ($150) as the deposit at the time of booking. The remaining balance is due the day of the photo session.

How do I book a session?

You will need to fill out the contact form, which is located at the top menu area. Or you can always send an email to: whimsygracephotos@gmail.com, response is given within a 48 hour period.

What payment methods do you accept?

Cash or check is preferred, however, if you want to use a credit or debit card you may do so via PayPal.

How long does it take to view my images for purchase?

Typically it takes 2-4 weeks for edits and a slideshow of session to be created for clients to view and choose for purchase from our collections list.

Can I order additional prints and/or album of session for purchase?

Absolutely! Professional fine art prints are available for purchase. In fact I recommend anytime a client is wanting an enlargement that they order directly from me, that way I can ensure the color settings are correct & quality of the print is in order. As far as albums, I do offer an heirloom, velvet covered album which come in 2 various sizes, the album pricing begins at $495 and that includes the professional fine art prints inside the album.
