What to wear?
Doing a photoshoot is special, so do it up! (not dressy but have fun with it!) I always tell my clients to wear something that would ideally match their home decor so that when you print and display your images it all ties in. Adding in accessories like bowties, hats, bows, pretty painted nails and jewelry is always a nice touch.
When should I book a session?
Anytime! Although it is best to book in advance to be sure you get a date in my calendar as I do only book so many sessions a month. For Fall to Christmas it is especially a busy time so booking in advance is suggested.
Will a deposit be needed to secure a date?
Yes, A deposit on all sessions booked to ensure you have a spot in Melissa's calendar.
What is a family marathon session?
Family marathon sessions are "mini" sessions but not a whole less then a regular session! I hold these marathon dates 3-4 times a year at each session (Spring, Summer, Fall and Christmas). These are discounted sessions with a structured approach and a shorter time slot allowing me to book families back to back.
How do I book a Family marathon session?
These sessions are only posted on my Facebook business page. A few months before, an event will be created as a "save the date" to ensure it's fair for all to be ready for the booking date. Most times, these sessions sell out in a few hours so joining the event will help you know when to be ready to snag your spot!
