You can pay with a credit card via Square, with cash in person or by sending a check through the mail. I do offer payment plans. Prints and/or digital products will not be delivered until payment is paid in full.
Two weeks after your shoot date you will receive an email with instructions on how to view (and download) your photos in a private, online gallery that is password protected. You will be able to share this gallery and password with friends and family.
Yes! I only offer all inclusive packages.
Well, you can expect to have fun! Really, the more relaxed you are the easier it is for me to do my job and the more fun you will have. I take care of all the important things so that you can relax and be yourself. My assistant and I make sure to fix your hair if it looks out of place, guide you on how to pose and even what to wear if you like. Just expect to act like yourself, only with a few more smiles than usual. If you have kiddos then try and let us ease them into the photos while you interact with them like you were on a play date, a very smiley play date.
All newborn shoots take place at my home studio, or at your home (lifestyle newborn shoot). Family and other standard shoots can take place at a predetermined location of your choice and/or at my home studio.
If the weather turns out warmer/cooler than you anticipated when putting together outfits, please adjust what everyone is wearing. Doing a session when it's sweltering and kids are over dressed is never fun. Likewise, if a cold front comes through unexpectedly, please put sweaters on your children, as I cannot photoshop out goose bumps and blue lips. I will most likely cut sessions short if I think the kids are too cold/overheated.
In case of rain, I will be watching the radar all day. If it doesn't rain, but is overcast, we will have to shoot without full sun, which can be flattering light as well! If it is pouring rain or there are heavy gusts of wind, we will reschedule a new shoot date to take place within two weeks.
I do not offer refunds, but deposits are always transferable as long as you reschedule two weeks prior to your shoot date. If we have to move the shoot to a different date/time due to weather you will not be charged. Emergencies are always understandable though! Just chat with me if there is an emergency.
Good question! Wardrobe assistance is a complimentary service I offer. We can begin that process once you book. However, if you would like some basic ideas, visit my “Family Outfit Ideas” Pinterest board by clicking HERE.
You can print anywhere you like. But this is why you shouldn't ... only high end printing companies sync their printers with calibrators, the same ones that I sync mine with. This makes for optimal color and quality. Many lower end labs use an auto correct option on their machines that either over exposes prints, leaving bright white spots on your photos, or leaves a blue, red, or green film over your photos. You hired a professional photographer to take your photos, have them printed professionally as well.
I will absolutely respect your wish for privacy. I ask clients to sign a voluntary contract at the beginning of their session granting me the copyright to all images taken at their session. I generally use them on all social media platforms to endorse Sarah Renee Photography as a brand. If you have concerns regarding the use of your photos then please discuss it with me before we book your session and we will absolutely work something out to make you feel comfortable.
Not at this time, but I am more than happy to refer you to amazing birth photographers.
Yes. If travel time from the SRP studio to the shoot location exceeds 30 minutes, SRP will charge $50 per hour, prorated in 15 minute increments, over and above the 30 minutes of included travel time. For example, if the roundtrip drive to and from the shoot location takes two hours, client is charged a travel fee of $50. This will be added to the client’s final invoice.

Aside from the mini shoots offered in SRP pricing, I do create themed mini sessions 1-2 times a year. If you would like to receive information on any upcoming mini shoots, please add your email to the SRP newsletter list by clicking HERE.
