When should I book my session?
As soon as you have a date, an event, or an idea in mind. Most sessions are booked out a month to two months in advance. I highly recommend booking in advance, so that we can get started on working on all the big and small details for the day of your session.
How do I book a session?
You can contact me by email at Lillyjeanphoto@gmail.com or by filling out a Contact Form. From there I will work on arranging a date that best fits your needs and availability. All sessions require a $150 non-refundable deposit upon booking, which will go towards your session balance. Deposit can be paid via Paypal, and the full balance will be due on the date of your session.
Where do sessions take place?
I am a natural light photographer, so most of my sessions take place outdoors or in areas that have windows where natural light can peak in. I also would love to work with you on picking a location that you or your family frequent often…like a local park, a coffee shop, or even in the comfort of your home.
What types of payments do you accept?
I accept Paypal and cash.
What should I wear?
This session is all about YOU. So I always suggest staying true to your style! Wear something that you might wear to a special occasion, something that makes you feel beautiful, or something that you’ve just completely fallen in love with! Working with a color palette in mind is always helpful. If you plan to hang these pictures up on your wall, I suggest picking colors that will compliment your home as well. I truly believe that pictures are all about your smiles, your connection, and your love…but an outfit can sometimes really help to let your personality shine through! Feel free to check out my Pinterest Board for some inspiration.
How long does a typical session last?
A typical session will last an hour, or until I feel like I’ve captured what you had in mind. Newborn sessions usually take anywhere between 2-4 hours so that baby can continue with feedings, diaper changes, comfort etc.
How long does it take to receive my final gallery?
I will deliver a password protected online gallery 2-3 weeks from the date of your session, where you can easily download your images straight to your computer or even share with friends if you’d like. If you need your pictures sooner, feel free to let me know beforehand, and I will see what I can do.
Do you travel?
Yes! My sessions include travel within solano county, but I often travel as far as San Francisco and Sacramento for an extra travel fee.
Where are you located?
I’m located in Fairfield, CA. About 20 minutes from Napa, and 45 minutes from both San Francisco and Sacramento.
How many images do you deliver?
I deliver on average 25 images per hour, sometimes more. I really believe in quality over quantity, and I take my time on each image so that I can deliver the best images from your day.
Can I print my photos? Where can I print them?
YES, please print your photos!!! Hang them on your walls, frame them as a gift, turn them into a book to pass down to your children, make cards out of them etc. It’s your choice to print your photos wherever you’d like, but I highly recommend printing through a quality company like Mpix. Places like Target, Walmart, Walgreens etc. can really distort the colors of the original picture.
