HOW IT ALL WORKS | FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do the Dulcet White Space portrait sessions work?
Our sessions take place in a styled studio environment. Our sessions are dynamic, family-friendly and quick! You receive 15 or more final images in an online gallery with the ability to download, share and even print all images!
How long does each session last?
Our sessions are about 30 minutes long and start at your reserved appointment time. We ask that you wait outside the studio doors until the time of your reserved session in order to respect all the families that are coming that day. Unfortunately, if you are late for any reason, your session time will be compromised.
What is included in the session fee?
Our sessions include our professional photographers and set stylists as well as your own individualized, private online gallery of 15 or more final images that are edited for color, contrast and cropping. These images are in high-resolution for you and available for downloading and sharing directly from your private gallery.
Do you offer prints?
You are able to purchase professional prints directly from your gallery in a variety of sizes!
When should I arrive?
We advise everyone to allow a little extra time for arrival and parking. If you are early, you can get your kids adjusted with a snack right outside of the studio doors until the time of your session. Please come ready in the outfits you are wanting to be photographed in and we will get started at the exact time of your session.
What should we wear?
We love modern and simple looks with mostly neutral colors and subtle prints so as not to clash with any decor, but we aren't against any tasteful pops of color either!
What should I bring?
We recommend bringing anything that will keep your children entertained during any in-between times, whether that's their favorite show, iPad game, toy or activity. You can also bring snacks (we recommend some that wont stain) for if they get hungry or hangry. Although we dont allow outfit changes we still recommend you to bring an extra shirt or outfit in case the kiddos get dirty or stained on the way!
Can I bring an outfit change?
Because we have limited time, as of right now we aren't offering any outfit changes.
How can I prepare for my session?
We highly recommend scheduling your session when your kiddo tends to be happiest. This may be after a nap, or after a snack, first thing in the morning, later in the day-- you know this best. We recommend not skipping naps right before your shoot. We also always recommend kids get a good night sleep before their session.
If your kiddo is old enough, we suggest talking to them about the shoot beforehand. Letting them know that this is a special and fun experience. Build up the experience (similar to building up going to Disneyland) where your child is looking forward to the shoot and excited to be there. Maybe plan a fun activity after the shoot like going out for a treat or doing an activity your child loves.
Lastly, if you have any special tricks or treats that your kiddo is currently into, feel free tobring them!
What if my child is unhappy that day?
We love to capture kids just being themselves. This may mean capturing a variety of emotions throughout the session including a few laughs, pouts, yawns and tears. We do our best to pull out emotion and make your kiddo comfortable, but if you know your child tends to get cranky around nap time, please schedule your session accordingly.
What if I need to cancel?
Unfortunately, due to the limited space we can't refund any session fees or give credit towards a future session. However, you are more than welcome to offer your session to a friend.
Can I put my name on a wait list?
While we don't have a formal wait list for each event, you do have the ability to pre-register for your city. Those on the pre-register list are told first about upcoming sessions and any promotions.
Come to my city!
We love to travel , so if you don't see your city in the upcoming session let us know, we would love to plan a session close to you! Shoot us over an email and let us know where you're at and if you get together some friends or have a group of people that want it near you, that's even better!
