Here are some frequently asked questions clients ask me before a session.  I hope this will help answer any questions or concerns you may have.  You can always message, email, or call me.  I want your session to be stress free, relaxed, and most importantly- fun!  

 

  • I am interested in scheduling a session.  How do I book with you? Email is the best way to contact me.  [email protected]  Please leave me your name, email address and what package you are interested in and any questions you may have.  There is also a green "Book a Session" button on my homepage.  This will lead you to my calendar where you can book your session, date, and time.  

 

  • What do we wear?  Something that will express who you are and most importantly something that you will feel comfortable in.  Bright bold colors are fun.  Neutral colors always look classic.  For Family sessions, pick 3-4 colors.  It's visually nice to have everyone wearing at least one color from your scheme.  I strongly suggest not to wear all white or all black.  

 

  • What if my child doesn't behave?   I approach children as if we are going to play rather than take pictures.  I will try to get them into a pose or spot where I would like to photograph- but if they want to go somewhere else, I will follow them.  This is the fun part.  I love the challenge of capturing their personalities and candids.  So it is best if the child is the boss (just for this session).  When they are happy and comfortable, it will show in the photos.  Book your session when your child is happiest.  This tends to be in the morning right after they wake up and are fed.  Or, after their morning/afternoon nap.  Also, bring some drinks, snacks, and possibly their favorite toy.  I have stickers and bubbles with me at every session.  

 

  • The forecast predicts RAIN.  Can we reschedule?  Absolutely.  I will make time for you so you can have your session outdoors in nice weather.  Overcast is fine for sessions. 

 

  • What is your availability?  I schedule outdoor sessions on the evenings during the week Monday-Friday after 4pm, Saturday and Sunday 7am-7pm.  In home sessions are available per request.  

 

  • When is the best time to have our session?  Lighting is best an hour and a half after sunrise and (my favorite) an hour and half before sun set.  This is referred to the "golden hour."  However, with little ones they are usually best to photograph after they are fed and well rested.  This is usually in the morning or after their afternoon nap.  That's fine.  Remember- the child is the boss.  I can work around whatever time frame is best for you.  I've learned how to photograph in different types of lighting.

 

  • Do you travel outside of Rhode Island?  Yes, I will travel up to an hour’s distance to meet you at your location.  I will charge an extra $30 for distances more than an hour.

 

  • Are prints or digital files included in the investment?  DRP's choice of edited digital files are included.  Prints are separate.  

 

  • How will I receive my digital images?  I will email you a link and password to view your edited images.  You will be able to download the edited images right from the site.  

 

  • Can you add the unedited images or RAW files to my link?  Unfortunately, I do not give out my unedited photos.  

 

  • What size are the images?  High res images are 300 dpi jpeg file.  

 

  • When can I expect to see my edited gallery?  Anywhere between 7-10 days.  October-December expect up to two weeks.  

 

  • Can I post my images from our session on social media?  Yes.  Please mention Devine Reith Photography for photo credit.  

 

  • When are payments due?  $25 non refundable deposit is due at the time of booking.  The remaining balance is due the day of your session.    

 

  • Do you offer prints?  I do not offer prints.  I sign a Photo Release so you can print wherever you like.  I recommend a few professional labs in your email.
