How long do you keep images for and can I come back later and order more from my session?

I hold onto galleries for up to 6 weeks GUARANTEED. Beyond that, while I most likely will still have them, no guarantees can be made. Although I am sure to back all of my images up on multiple external storage drives and online backup sites, Kristen Laquidara Photography is not liable for the restoration of old photographs.

You can come back and place an additional order anytime so long as I still have your gallery.

What kind of photo sessions do you offer?

ALL OF THEM!

While my favorite and most popular sessions are portraits and weddings, there is not one type of photo session I will say no to! This includes families, engagements, newborns, special events, models, lifestyle work – you name it, I offer it!

 

 I will take any chance I can to get creative behind my camera!

How does the payment process work?

 At least 50% of your session fee is due to reserve your session date. The remaining will be due the day of your session. Or you can choose to pay it all up front! 

I also offer payment plans on all weddings. We can talk more about this together as no two weddings are at all the same!

Do you travel?

Yes! I will travel anywhere, however there is a travel fee for any location above 25 miles. I often send out a list of location options that I feel is best for the type of session a client is inquiring for. However, if you have a certain location in mind beyond the choices I offer, let me know and we can talk about pricing! I am usually fairly flexible!

Don't worry - we will simply reschedule! I do my best to always make sure there is no stress on your end when it comes to unpredicted weather disturbances. 

In the need for a rescheduled session, you will receive an email and text from me the morning of your session. 

What happens if there is bad weather the day of my session?

I have to cancel my session, do I get a refund?

Unfortunately, no refunds are issued for session fees as it takes away from an available date that could have been offered to another client. You may, however, choose to reschedule your session, but please try to let me know at least 48 hours in advance.

I am really awkward in front of the camera and I struggle with getting photos of myself. What can I expect? 

I get it, I used to be the same way! But the good news is I am a MAJOR perfectionist which means I am the same way with my photography. My job is to make you feel as comfortable and confident as I possibly can. I will even show you some of the images throughout the session (leaving some a surprise, of course!)

 

Your job is simple. Just make sure you like what your hair and smile looks like in the images and leave the rest to me!

I want you to feel the most like YOU in these photos as they will last a lifetime.

Don't worry if a pose feels a little awkward, sometimes those turn out to be your favorites on the other side of the camera! Basically, what I am saying is, leave the creativity to me and just go with the flow! You will enjoy yourself more that way!

What should I wear?

It depends on the session! Most sessions allow for three outfit changes so be sure to take advantage of that and change it up for the photos! The more variety the better (so don't bring 3 different black shirts, if you get what I'm saying). Avoid neon colors as they don't photograph well and if we are taking your photos in a field with a lot of grass, avoid green!

For family sessions, its best to wear complimenting/cohesive colors – but don't all wear the same color! There's such thing as too much matching!

Feel free to ask questions prior to your session when it comes to your outfits and I will help you out!
