When do I schedule my session?
I recommend calling us as soon as you are thinking about a session! We need to get you on the calendar as soon as possible! There are limited booking each month.
I recommend doing your maternity session around 32-34 weeks. This is the time you usually feel your best through your pregnancy and you have a cute baby bump and a beautiful mommy glow!
I recommend the baby be under 3 weeks of age. Babies are still willing to curl up and be on their tummies and are pretty sleepy at the 3 week and under timeframe! This is not to say that we cannot get beautiful images of babies at any age!
If you are choosing to do milestone sessions for your baby, I recommend newborn, sitter and 1 year! These stages see the most change in you sweet little one! Every baby reaches milestones at different ages. Sitter may be a 4 month old or an 8 month old! For the 1 year images,I recommend getting these at around 11 months that way you can choose those images before their 1st birthday!
(These are just guidelines and I would be glad to capture any timeframe for you and your sweet baby)
When do come and when do we get our pictures?
~~So, you love our images and want us to capture your sweet memories! After any questions or concerns you may have and you looking over and signing our portrait agreement/information sheet, we will schedule a date on the calendar! This date is only penciled in, babies like to make GRAND appearances sometimes! Once your little one is here and you are home, let me know and we will figure out a date for you to come for your session.
~~We will schedule a time about a week after your session for you to come back to the studio to view/purchase any images you LOVE!! The images you will see will only be “soft proofed” meaning I will correct and professionally edit only the ones you love and want from your session!
~~I offer prints, heirloom leather albums, custom photo jewelry, canvas, metal prints, acrylics and even digitals! It takes approx. 2-4 weeks for products to come in from our custom labs depending on what items you decide on purchasing. I will let you know when your items come in for you to schedule a pick up time!
Where do we meet for a session?
I have a sweet little studio on Elm Street in Denton, Texas. I do most sessions there! I will however, sometimes do outside sessions if weather/time allows! Outdoor sessions that are not in close proximity to the studio require a $50 transportation fee.
What is the difference between raw files and edited images
I want you to see the very best of our work, therefore only professionally edited images leave our studio! Our RAW files are files that are not altered. Both RAW and professionally edited images are the sole property of Tina Sartain DBA: Sweet Treasures Photography. Raw images include outtakes, duplicates, blinking, looking away, flash miss fire, and the originals of the images you see! If you choose digital files, the images you receive are available for you to print, share and store for you and your friends and family. Sweet Treasures Photography will have a “print release” for your needs. Any images are not to be edited in any way due to copy right laws. (This includes adding masks, filters and effects to display on social media).
