WHERE WILL MY SESSION BE HELD?
I prefer to work using natural lighting, scattered sunlight. Hence the location will be outdoors. If you have a favorite one - share it and we will see what is the best time to find ideal lighting there. Newborn sessions are usually held at your home or at your place of delivery.
WHEN DO NEWBORN SESSIONS OCCUR?
WHEN DO NEWBORN SESSIONS OCCUR? The best time to do newborn sessions is within the first two weeks of their life. Just Born sessions are held during the first 48 hours after delivery.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
CAN I BRING SOME IDEAS FOR A PHOTO SHOOT?
Definitely! Send me as many cell phone snaps of your ideas and outfit choices as you’d like. This will help me lot to understand your vision.
HOW DO YOU CHOOSE WHICH IMAGES TO PUT IN MY GALLERY FROM OUR SHOOT?
I look at each and every image from your session and hand select the best ones. What I'm searching are images that represent me as an artist and your family, as each is unique. I guarantee minimum of 30 images, but there are usually many more included.
Unfotunately - No, only edited and high-resolution JPG images will be delivered to you. RAW and unedited files are kept as digital negatives.
CAN I GET RAW IMAGES?
WILL I GET MY DIGITAL PHOTOS AFTER THE SHOOT?
You will obtain all-inclusive collection of high resolution digital files delivered via direct download and a print release. A minimum of 30 digitals files will be available to you (but usually there are much more!), in both color and black and white.
HOW DO I BOOK A SESSION WITH YOU, OLGA?
Usually I don't, I am not after that one great shot but rather a collection of images for lifelong memories and appreciation. However sometimes I do mini-sessions with my patron clients, since they are relaxed and not afraid of my camera anymore. =)
DO YOU OFFER MINI-SESSIONS?
It really depends on high/low season - my weekend schedule is usually full one to three months ahead. However there's always a spot on a weekday. If you are interested in newborn portraits or birth photography, please inquire while you are pregnant. Have you just delivered - not an issue. I try to leave openings in my schedule for last minute newborn sessions.
HOW FAR OUT ARE YOU BOOKED?
My pricing is all-inclusive. You pay one price for ALL of the digital files. There's usually ~$100 deposit is due when booking to secure your session date.
