How long will it take to get our products?

Reprints will arrive 1-2 weeks after the date ordered.  Please allow additional time for canvases and albums.  Once your products have arrived we will call you to set up a time for pick-up.  We can rush orders, so just let us know if you are in need of your products sooner.

Where do you print pictures and albums?

We have spent many hours and much studying to find the best products for our clients.  We use only professional printing labs for photographers.  Our prints do not come from any local stores and our albums are not shutterfly books.  Every page of your album is custom designed by us, along with the beautiful cover.   Album pages are thick and sturdy with a beautiful UV coating that will last for years to come.  We work very hard to ensure our products are the best quality.  We are proud to offer them!

What location should we do our session at?

For this one we suggest to think “out of the box.”  There are many great places for a session.  We are on location photographers.  That means we can come to your house and photograph your family doing what they do best…being themselves.    We can go to your favorite park.  If you are feeling more adventurous we can take you to some of our favorite places like open fields filled with tall grass, downtown areas (Glendora, San Dimas and Covina have these), near by collages, maybe even our local foothill mountains.  We are always open to trying something new so if you have an idea let us know!

My child hates to have their picture taken!  Will you get any good pictures?

Being parents of two small children will help us with this one!  We understand that most children do not enjoy walking in a photography studio, being sat on a piece of carpet and being told to say “cheese.”  That’s why our approach to a photo session is so different from “studio” work.  Sessions can last up to one and a half hours, so we have plenty of time to take breaks.  We strive to make your session fun…for you and your child.  The location can be at your home, a favorite park, even an ice cream shop.  Clothing is a major factor in your child’s happiness.  Clothes that are uncomfortable and restricting may make your child agitated.  We love clothing to be fun and show your child’s personality.  There is plenty of time for clothing changes, so don’t be afraid to bring extra outfits.  When it is all said and done we want to capture the giggles, smiles and pouts of your child.

Do you ever give special discounts?

We do!  We call these our “casting calls.”  There are times that we have a new idea in our heads that we have to try!  Sometimes we need a fun and adventurous person to help us make these ideas come to life.  Our requirement for these casting calls is that you be a person who… likes to be in front of the camera, who is up for trying something new and who wants to help our vision come to life.  Check our blog often to see if you might be a match for a casting call or if you know someone who will.

{Birth}

As a mother of two, births are quickly becoming one of Cherie’s favorite things to photograph.  Due to the private nature of birth and the precious moments after we do not post pictures from births in our galleries.  Please contact Cherie for information about birth photography.

{Commercial/Corporate}

Commercial or corporate photography includes headshots, events, or print work. Please contact us for details and pricing.

{Our Goal}

We know how stressful it can be to take pictures.  That’s why it is our goal to make this fun!  We love what we do and we want you to love your pictures.  We hope to freeze a little moment of time for your family…it goes by too fast.
