Hello! Thank you so much for reaching out to Bokeh Love Photography to document this special time in your life! Below I have some important information about the sessions, what to expect, and things to know!
Investing in Portrait Sessions: Maternity & Newborn
With Bokeh Love Photography portrait sessions are not just snapshots. These sessions are very special. They are your legacy. The images that we create are moments in life that will only be revisited by preserving that memory. With each session, you receive an online proofing gallery where you will be able to view, select and purchase only the images that you love the most. After you receive your online proofing gallery, I help you figure out how you would like to preserve your legacy, other than digitally because let's face it; sometimes we forget to print our memories. I specialize in custom tangible products, such as fine art metals, matted prints, gallery wraps and custom stretched canvases with artisan metal framing in addition to timeless albums and photo books. The possibilities are truly endless as I guide you through which products are best for you and your family.
Prints, Products, Wall Art, Albums, Etc:
Print and specialty items are available for purchase after you receive your online proofing gallery.
30 digital images are included with your session. If you love the entire gallery, you can purchase the entire gallery for an additional $150.
The Session Fee covers the "Time & Talent" of the photographer:
Finding the perfect location, the perfect time of day, and even helping with outfit choices are just a few of the things we do to help make your session amazing. Bokeh Love Photography is run and operated by an Artist who has a passion for the art of the image. We don't just click the shutter, there is so much more to your image than you know. After your session we bring those images into our digital darkroom, and hand edit each photo. This can take a couple of hours to do and we pride ourselves on being precise in editing and telling a story with your images.
Of course we don't love collecting sales tax, but as a legal business in the state of NJ, we must. Currently the 2021 sales tax is 6.625%. We collect sales tax on each session and each purchase. So, if you pre-pay for your digital images at the time of booking, you will only be charged sales tax once.
Selecting the perfect time:
Keep in mind that as the day goes on, the sun changes throughout the day. The very first time you see on the calendar is sunrise! Sunrise does change, so be sure to find out what time that is, or ask me and I can let you know which time is best to select! It works the same for sunset as well! Typically throughout summer, 7:30 is the ideal time for your sunset session, especially on the beach. However, if you are having your session somewhere with a lot of tree's and shade, you may want to select 6:30. I am available throughout the day as well if your little ones are cranky in the evening, I totally get it. Just be sure to pick a location that suits the time. For example: The beach at 12pm is perfect for catching those summer rays and splashing in the ocean, but not so much for a portrait session, unless you want hundreds of beach goers photobombing you!
For Maternity sessions - you want that sunset time. If you're unsure of what it is, just ask me before you book! Or you could download an app to find out. Ideally, I like to book 30 minutes before the start of the golden hour for beach, and 1 hour before for any shady areas with trees.
For Newborn session - I like to book those during the week M-F, at 10:30am.
Both Sessions - If you are booking both sessions, select your Maternity session time, and we will find a date and time closer to your delivery date.
Whatever location and time you select, you'll be sure to have a wonderful experience and portraits to last a lifetime!
