What To Expect

.

Your Session:

Session dates and times are confirmed after I receive your deposit fee. New appointments are booked several weeks in advance to ensure availability.

Your photo session will be fun, relaxed, and enjoyable for the whole family. My greatest joy in photographing families, couples, and children is being able to snap those special moments of pure happiness and natural interactions. At the start of your session I will take a moment to get to know everyone. With young children we may begin with some silly dance moves or a quick conversation to break the ice.

During an average session we will spend approximately one to two hours taking photos, though we will be able to stop for breaks, a quick snack, or the opportunity to allow everyone to regroup. Your session will never be rushed. Occasionally I will give direction during your session, however I encourage you to interact with each other just as you would if I were not there. Those candid moments are the ones you will remember most years from now!

If you have any specific ideas for poses or something special in mind for your session, please let me know. I welcome your ideas and will be more than happy to accommodate those requests.

After Your Session:

Within 24-48 hours after your session I will post a sneak peek on my Facebook page. Please feel free to tag yourself and share with friends and family.

Approximately 1 weeks after your session you will receive your edited high resolution digital images. At this time you will also be able to view your images in an online gallery. Here you can purchase any additional prints or items. All online galleries will be password protected, so only you will have access to them. Your online gallery will remain active for 14 days after posting. Once your images are chosen, they will be submitted to my printing lab.

Location:

I am located in Haddon Township, NJ and will travel within the tri-state area. Photos can be taken in any outdoor location or in the comfort of your own home. A traveling fee may be applied to a session depending on the location.

.

Gift Certificates:

A gift certificate can be made out in any dollar amount. Gift certificates will be mailed out once payment is received. Please email KimberlyMuroPhotography@gmail.com for any questions or to purchase a gift certificate.

.

Maternity Shoots:

Book your maternity shoot fairly early in your pregnancy, as dates do tend to fill up rather quickly. It is best to plan for this session between 28-34 weeks pregnant. You want to aim for that window where your belly is prominent and round, but you aren’t feeling uncomfortable yet. Every woman is different though, so listen to your body.

.

Infant Shoots:

The best time to photograph a newborn is within the first 14 days of life. After that time period it becomes harder to pose them in unique ways and you risk losing the peaceful sleeping newborn look. It is important to book your session 3-4 months before your due date to ensure availability. Obviously every baby does not come on time, and infant sessions do receive priority as the window of opportunity to photograph them is limited. It is requested to set a tentative date so that I can keep a few days open during that time to fit in the photo shoot. It is important that the baby be well fed and sleepy, though extra time will be permitted to allow for diaper changes, feeding, and fussiness. Infant shots are best taken with no clothes on. Most newborn clothes do not fit them well and the babies end up getting lost in the little clothes. I supply all props for the shoot, but you are more than welcome to include any special items you want to.

.

Birthday Shoots:

A free cake smash session can be included in any birthday shoot. Client must provide cake, and remember lots of baby wipes! (This is perfect for first birthday shoots!)
