If you have never been introduced to the perils of the photographic mini session, read this!
It gets pretty loud around here and sometimes and it is often chaotic but we love the silliness and we laugh a lot. However, the studio is a place of work so anyone running, throwing things, fighting or swearing will be spending some time benched on the stairs. If I have to chase your kid up the stairs or break up fights that takes precious moments away from your session.
Tantrums and tears are allowed to run their course. usually we wipe away the tears and move on. Don't feel bad if your two-year-old flings themselves on the floor, it happens everyday and I often feel like doing myself.
Bribes are very much encouraged. Bring something for the kids and for dad. Make sure everyone is well fed and well rested.
Don't be surprised if the cooperation bribe you offered your four-year-old is instantly forgotten when you walk through the door. Be prepared to make a second more lucrative deal.
If your child has special needs please, please tell me beforehand. We can schedule you for the last session of the day so we won't feel rushed.
Please arrive on time, there is never a slow day and the schedule is often packed.
I allow a few minutes at the end of every session to prepare for the next family so If we need a few more moments at the end of your session to get the perfect photo I am happy to extend your session for a few minutes at no additional charge.
If the little person is absolutely distraught you pay on the day and I will give you a gift certificate for a free session. Often the second time around is much easier.
I understand a perfect smile is a priority for most but sometimes the smiles don't come. We record who the little person was on the day..tired, ticked-off, overwhelmed, sad or shy.
If you are running late or crap happens at the last minute it's ok, just send me quick text on 612-368-2161 otherwise I will be sitting in my basement all alone wondering if you are ok.
Payment is due on the day and can be check, cash, credit card or PayPal.
