Frequently Asked Questions

How long with the photo shoot take?

Please plan on 45 minutes to an hour.  

Where does Maisi do photo shoots?

I work in the Northern Virginia area and Washington, D.C. traveling from my home in Alexandria, VA within a 10 mile radius.  Outside of that radius there may be an extra charge

What should I expect during the photo shoot?

I will meet you at the location of your choice to take indoor and/or outdoor photos.  Photo sessions are always fun and upbeat.  We suggest you not wear matching outfits but instead coordinating clothing and we will gladly send you a What to Wear form with some ideas.  Maisi will take candid and posed photos throughout the photo shoot.  Please let her know if you have any specific shots you would like

Does Maisi work with special needs families?

YES!  Maisi is very well educated and understanding of families and persons with special needs.  She has worked with clients who have autism and clients with physical disabilities as well

How much is a photo session?

Family sessions are $250.  This is for shoot time only and does not include packages or prints. I am happy to include your fur family member for an additional $25 fee/pet. For shoots with more than 5 people, there is a $25 fee/person over 5.

What if my young child needs a break?

I love to make your photo shoot fun and upbeat, but often children need a little break.  While it’s suggested that you plan your session around nap times and feeding times, we will accommodate you so everyone is happy! 

When will I get my photos?

Turn around time is 2 weeks or less.  You will be given access to your proofs via an on line gallery.  This gallery is password-protected and will be live for one week.  

How are my photos delivered to me?

Depending on your order, you will receive digital images either electronically or on a thumb drive.  Prints and thumb drives are mailed to you, and you should receive them about a week after your order. 

Do you provide Framing Services?

Yes, I work with a printing company that does beautiful framing.  Let me know if you are interested in framing, and I will be happy to show you various frame and mat options.  I also offer gallery wrapped canvases, which I personally love!
