Frequently Asked Questions
Hello there! I understand that preparing for your child's photo session can be a lot to handle, but I'm here to assure you that it can be a fun and stress-free experience. Here's what you can expect from our time together:
About the Child's Session:
My sessions are prompt-led, focusing less on traditional poses and forced smiles and more on capturing real, genuine moments with your child.
Kids usually leave with smiles, as the emphasis is on creating a joyful and interactive experience.
You can anticipate many candid, laughing, and playful photos that truly capture your child's unique personality.
Building Trust with Kids:
If your child arrives feeling uneasy, it's entirely normal. I strive to build trust with them in a personal way, spending the first five to ten minutes solely interacting with them to ensure they know the session will be enjoyable.
My height (being only five feet tall) makes me pretty un-intimidating with the little ones.
What to Bring:
Ensure your child has been fed before the session.
Bring water and a non-messy snack, like marshmallows or cheerios, just in case they need a little snack. However, don't make these the center of the session or use them as bribery.
Best Locations and What to Wear:
After booking, I'll provide you with a location list with information about each spot.
Children look cute in pretty much anything, so there's no need to stress over their outfit.
Sessions are designed to be fun, fast-moving, and candid. I prioritize getting posed pictures done first and then dedicate the rest of the session to candid photos. You'll get beautiful shots, so don't worry – I'll take care of everything.
Editing and Delivery:
You'll receive a digital download for your edited images no later than two weeks from your session date along with a print release.
Retainers are paid online with a credit card, and the remaining session fee is due on the day of the session. Payment can be made via invoice, cash, or check payable to Paige Leier.
If you have any more questions or concerns, feel free to reach out. I'm looking forward to capturing beautiful moments with your child!
