Session Fee – Session fees are due when scheduling your appointment and are non-refundable.  In the event of inclement weather or illness your session may be rescheduled and we will apply your session fee to a future session.  Appointment cancellation of less than 24 hour notice will result in a $25. reschedule fee.  Session fee includes photographers time, view session, retouching and the supply of senior formal drape – tuxedo – cap-n-gown clothing.  Products are purchased separately.

Yearbook Submission – Our studio will submit the yearbook image to any public and some private institutions.  We are not limited to servicing New Jersey students as we have worked with other states as well.  Submission confirmation is secured directly from the yearbook advisor.  Some private and parochial schools require their in-house photographer for yearbook submission although you are not required to purchase these photos for your personal use.  We have found our clients prefer our relaxed studio than the rushed atmosphere of the school as proven in the quality of our photography.  The yearbook image is included in any of our Collection Packages and will be released to the school when the package balance is paid in full.  If your yearbook image needs to be sent to the school before the one (1) week editing turnaround date, a $25. rush fee will be applied.

Appointments – Plan to arrive for your appointment 10 minutes early so you can fix those last minute details and relax. If you are running more than 10 minutes late we suggest rescheduling your appointment. When you come late, you are actually using up your own session time, and we cannot make up that time due to other scheduled appointments. We would rather reschedule than rush.

Clothing – Should be comfortable and a reflection of who you really are. We have seen it all…jeans, polos, dresses, gowns. A suggestion to avoid shirts with writing or too much design. They will take away the focus of your face.

Footwear – Can’t find shoes to match your outfit? Simple solution, go barefoot!

Nails – Don’t forget the small details…like nail polish. Either it’s on or off…the chipped look is not something you are going to want to see in your portraits. When in doubt of a color, you can’t go wrong with either a French manicure or a simple nude is perfect.

Jewelry – Wear jewelry that is personal to oneself. We noticed a trend of wearing jewelry given in a current relationship (aka the boyfriend necklace) and then the relationship ends. Keep jewelry personal or even a family heirloom is a nice touch.

Retouching – All retouching is done complimentary which consists of removal of acne, stray hairs, brighten teeth. It is our goal make you look your best! For extensive retouching such as the removal of braces, heavy tan lines, bra straps, tattoos, etc., this can be acquired for an additional fee. Most can be avoided by planning ahead by incorporating strapless bras or bathing suits, clothing to conceal ink, etc. The thought and care you put into your portraits will be appreciated and treasured for years to come. 

Boy Cap-N-Gown  – We suggest bringing a dress shirt and tie to wear under the cap-n-gown. Remember you are only going to see the collar and knot of the tie so try to keep within your school colors. A white dress shirt is always a safe option. Having the tie already tied before you get to the studio is a real time saver.

Pets – If your family pet is going to be included in your portrait make sure their color of their collar and leash blend with your outfit. A trip to the groomer will insure their best looks!

Most importantly, Relax and have Fun! Soak it up and enjoy the moment! – Alisha
