FAQ - Yours Forever Photography

What should I wear?

To make your photo session amazing I suggest you wear something you feel comfortable wearing. If you feel cool, you’ll look cool. I want you to be free to have fun because it’s the genuine expressions that come along with having a good time that I am trying to capture. If you’re in a shoot with other people you should coordinate, but I would never suggest to completely match tops and bottoms. For example, choose a color theme and use patterns to add interest.

When it comes to kids; think color, patterns and style! Think layers, textures, hats, accessories…and should you need some inspiration try H&M for kids, Crew Cuts (J Crew Kids), Gap Kids, Janie & Jack, Oilily..the list goes on. I also encourage those with big imaginations to pull out their fairy wings, big rubber rain boots, floppy hats and even mom’s costume jewelry.

Bare feet are always fun and for babies, there’s nothing better than their birthday suit!


How many outfit changes come with a session?

The max with any session is two-three and this is to ensure we get plenty of variety in each outfit.


Where should we do our session?

There are so many places we can choose from! Once you complete the client information form the answers will give me a good idea for how to “style” your shoot and what kind of places work with that style.


Do you have props or do I need to bring my own?

I do have several different type props that we can use. Parasols, chalkboards, chairs, funny glasses, hats, and so much more! If you have things that work particularly well with your style please don’t hesitate to bring it to your shoot!


How much does a session cost and what does it come with?

You can check out all the pricing and other info HERE.


What are the different styles you shoot in?

With each session I work towards adapting my style to suit each shoot and the people that are in it. I want YOU to stand out in your shoot! I mainly try to shoot vintage, modern, and rustic styles.


What is the turnaround time on the photos?

Sneek peaks are usually posted 24-48. Your gallery should be done in 2 weeks. I will notify you during peak season if that is different.


Who has the rights to the images?

You have the rights to the images for personal use and Yours Forever Photography maintains the rights to use the images for promotional purposes.


What form of payment do you accept?

Cash or checks should be made payable to Teresa DiGirolamo.


I remember you taking a specific image at our session; Why don’t I see it in the gallery?

You will only see the best images from our session. This means only the icing on the cake!


What time of day will our session be?

To ensure the best possible custom photography experience all outdoor portrait sessions are best early in the morning or last afternoon with the exception of indoor photo sessions. Other times are available as well.


Weather?

Rain is never a good thing. However, cloud coverage is a photographer’s dream. Sun creates harsh shadows that we have to work around to avoid! Cold, snow…no problem .


 We need to reschedule, what’s your policy?

If something comes up and you need to reschedule please contact me at least 72 hours prior to your scheduled session to avoid a $25 dollar rescheduling fee.


Do you offer photography gift certificates?

Yes, I do! They make great gifts for Christmas, birthdays, house closings, holiday gifts, and many other special occasions. You can purchase sessions or dollar amounts to be used for sessions or print products. There is nothing better to remember a special occasion than a custom photography session.
