What day and time can we book you?I can be flexible! I love to shoot on weeknights right before sunset. The light is perfection. With little ones, I always, ALWAYS recommend shooting first thing in the morning! You get the BEST smiles on a full belly and a fresh nights rest!Where do sessions take place?I live on acreage, so if you're looking for an outdoor, country style shoot, we can shoot at my home. I also have an indoor studio available upon request.
If you'd like to shoot in a city location, I can make some great suggestions in the Lees Summit area.
If you'd like a shoot in your home, I'm happy to do that as well. I personally LOVE to shoot in peoples homes. It’s so much more intimate and authentic!
What should I wear?Pinterest is a source of great inspiration! I’m currently working on a style guide for my clients, but until then, feel free to bounce ideas off of me! I use Pinterest for lots of inspiration.
The main thing is to ensure you wear something you feel 100% comfortable in! I want you to LOVE your photos, so if you’re self conscious about your arms for instance, maybe steer away from wearing something sleeveless. What if my kids don't cooperate?I have two young children, need I say more? Kids are my specialty.
Also, Lego's and candy totally help. If you don't believe in bribing your children, I'm not the photographer for you. If you have treats that you know your kiddo will love, bring them! If you’re bringing your dog to the shoot, don’t forget doggie treats as well!
I saw these cute photos on Pinterest, can we recreate them during our shoot?Speaking from experience, Pinterest photos almost NEVER turn out as planned. However, there is no better inspiration than Pinterest. Take some time to scroll thru photos to get inspiration for your shoot, and choose a few that you totally love. I'm always happy to give them a shot, but the best photos captured will be candid and totally unplanned. I can promise you that!
How quickly will I get my images edited and returned?Typically, I'm able to turnaround within a week. However, I always share sneak peeks within 24 hours!
How do I print my photos?Once your photos are complete, I'll send you a link to your online gallery. You can download your favorites to your phone and share on social media (don't forget to tag Xenos Creative in your post!!). More importantly, you can order lots of fun goodies with your pictures on them such as phone cases, photobooks, coffee mugs, calendars, and even super cute growth charts for your little one.
When you receive your gallery via email, you can take a look at all the product available for purchase.
What forms of payment do you accept? I accept all major credit cards including Visa, MasterCard, American Express & Discover. I will send you an invoice via email following your shoot. If you choose to pay by card, there's a 2.9% transaction fee that will be added to your total.
Missouri sales tax is also applied.
Do I need a photo release?It never hurts to have it handy in the event you get questioned. I have a release available on my website if needed!
