Session Details

  • What is the cost of sessions?
    Pricing and specials are specific to session type. Please make sure to review all session details and our portfolio before inquiring.
  • How many images will I receive with each session?
    We work hard to produce every single image created for your session, and the last thing we want is for those images to be trashed. We want you to own every piece of art created, just like you do. This is why JMP includes all the edited images in every session package you purchase. The exact amount will vary based on your custom session, and I do not contract to any specific number of images because of this. As a guidline, on average the following session packages produce the following amount of images; Silver; 10-20 Gold; 30-40
  • How long will it take to get our images?
    Our typical turnaround time for editing is 2-3 weeks. If a longer time is needed, you will be informed of this at your session. Expedited editing services are offered for an additional $250. This service must be arranged when booking your session and is subject to availability. Expedited editing will guarantee delivery of images with-in 7 days.
  • What is a "limited" print release?"
    JMP's print release allows for your digital files to be printed in an 8x10 or smaller, for personal reasons. The files are sized down, and look fantastic on digital platforms and when printed in the sizes stated above. Enlargments to be displayed on walls must be purchased through your photographer. Printing large wall displays properly is a complex process. We use a high quality professional lab and color calibration with this lab as well as further editing is required when printing in large sizes and we want every piece of art displayed to fully represent the high quality studio we are. Printing and displaying our art is an important part of this process. Clients are welcome to share images on social media (with photographer credit), print for friends and family in 8x10 and smaller, scrapbooking, greeting cards, etc. The photographer still reserves copyright of all images produced. Copyright releases are not given and if a client would like to use their images for any additional reasons not stated above, permission must be given by the photographer.
  • Do any prints come with session packages?
    There are no prints in the packages*. We have found that the digital images are what clients are most concerned with when initially booking, so we have created simple digital packages to serve those needs. Printing can be a complicated, overwhelming process and you can't know exactly what you would want to print before seeing your images. Once your images are delivered, we offer assistance with selecting which images to print and display in your home. We offer fine art prints and canvases to be purchased a la carte or in discounted packages that are the most common sizes clients display on their walls. We are experienced in designing beautiful displays for your home and enjoy walking you through this process so your art doesn't get lost in the digital world, but is displayed and enjoyed for years to come! *Platinum packages do include an album, but we consider this different than "prints", as they include all the images from your session and you do not need to select certain sizes and images prior to seeing your images
  • How much do prints cost?
    Current pricing for all fine art prints, canvases and albums. Print purchase not required.
  • What if my baby arrives prematurely and/or needs to stay in the hospital for unexpected medical reasons?
    This field requires a lot of flexibility and we are very experienced in handling situations such as this. We always work around your needs, and will schedule your newborn session whenever your baby is ready for it. The 2-3 week after birth time frame is ideal, but not required to have a beautiful outcome for your session. Your baby's health and safety is always #1!
  • How are newborn sessions scheduled when we don't know the exact day baby will be born?
    Yes! A due date is a "guess date" and we aim to schedule your newborn session with-in baby's first 2 weeks after birth. With JMP's high quality services, exclusively for photography surrounding babies, we are very experienced in needing to be flexible. We book a very limited amount of newborn due dates in a month (another reason why it is so important to reserve your spot in my calendar as early in your pregnancy as possible), and schedule the exact day and time of your session when your baby is born. Simply send Jessica an email with-in 24 hours of having your baby to set your session day and time. Newborn sessions are held on week days to also help with this flexibility. Typically on Tuesday's and Thursday's at noon. This has worked well for years since parents take time off of work when they have a baby, and newborn sessions require more time to shoot than other sessions do.
  • What happens if I have a maternity session scheduled and I go into labor before my session?
    In this field, a lot of flexibility is required. In this situation, the deposit put down on your maternity session will be credited toward your newborn session balance. If you did not book a newborn session, your deposit can be used to any future session of your choice.
  • What is the cost of having my hair and make-up done in your studio?
    The hair and make-up artist that travels to our studio charges $120 for her services. You will pay her directly at time of service by cash or check. We will schedule the services for you. (Subject to availability) Hair and makeup services are for maternity sessions only.
