FAQ

PLANNING YOUR SESSION IS EXCITING AND WE WANT YOU TO BE READY TO HAVE FUN. WE'VE PUT TOGETHER SOME FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS TO HELP YOU PREPARE FOR YOUR SHOOT.

1

ONE

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

For family sessions, I always suggest light and airy colours!

 

For boys a white or light blue shirt with khakis or dark wash jeans is super cute! For girls, a nice flowy dress in a light colour like pastel pink is lovely!

 

Ideally no large logos or loud patterns - we don't want your clothes to take the focus away from you! No baseball caps is another one I recommend - having a cap on will create a shadow on your face.

WHAT IF THE WEATHER IS CLOUDY?

As much as we love sunny days, a cloudy day is a photographer's dream.

 

For your session, I am always hoping for an overcast day. I typically book for the late afternoon / early evening to avoid the peak sun times.

 

Direct sun can cast harsh shadows and I would feel terrible if we had to stay only in shaded areas for your photoshoot.

WHAT IF IT IS POURING RAIN?

We could plan an in-home session, I love lifestyle photos!

If lifestyle sessions aren't for you, we can talk about the indoor spots in town I know of and see if those work.

It's also an option to postpone our session. If you choose to reschedule, the date will be based off the next day we are both available.

HOW WILL MY PHOTOS BE DELIVERED FOR SELECTION?

We use the website pixieset! You will get a link in your email that will bring you to your selection gallery. This is where you will favorite the amount of pictures included in your package, and also where you will have the option to buy more images.

WHAT IS OUR TURNAROUND TIME?

Our turnaround time is 2 weeks or less. Sneakpeeks are typically between 4-5 days.

WHERE SHOULD WE GO?

For outdoor sessions, I have so many wonderful places we could go to. 

Do you love the idea of a beautiful field of green grass surrounded by trees? How about a waterfall? Or by the beach? 

 

Do you prefer photos in a city setting? With cool buildings and street scenes?

Let me know what you want to get from our session and I'll suggest my favourite local spots.

WHAT IF THE FORECAST

CALLS FOR SHOWERS?

If it's only calling for light showers, we have a few options to choose from:

  • We can move to a covered area when it rains and carry on once it stops.

  • We can put a fun twist on the session with rain boots, umbrellas and puddles and let the kids have some fun!

  • Or we can plan the session near a back up indoor location in case sprinkles turn to pouring rain.

WHAT IF I WANT MORE PICTURES THAN MY PACKAGE ALLOWS?

We can provide you extra images if you wish! It is 7$ per extra image outside of your package total. Or you can purchase 5 images for 30$. If you fell in love with the whole gallery, we can give you a quote at 30% off.

WHERE CAN I ACCESS MY FINAL GALLERY?

Much like a selection gallery, you will get an email with the link. The final gallery will be delivered by Pic-time. You will have three months to download this gallery. During that time, you can order prints and print products such as canvases, cards & calender's directly through that site.

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD YOU BOOK?

It all depends on the shoot and what time of the week you desire! For weekend days we tend to book typically 2-3 months in advance whereas weekdays is 4-6 weeks.

For more time sensitive shoots, it goes as follows:

-We recommend 3-4 weeks minimum for cake smash shoots as we need time to order your props and ensure your set is perfect!

-Newborn shoots are tricky but as soon as you know your due date, send us a message! We can only book so many newborn shoots at a time to ensure we are prepared for when your little one arrives! Without booking your due date, we won't have saved spots so it'll be harder to fit you in.

If you need to book last minute, never hesitate to reach out to us and we will try our best to fit you in. All last minute openings will be posted on our instagram stories @sarahmichalphotography, so be sure to stay in touch!
