The Investment Guide Kelly Laramore photography

Hello!

So you're interested in booking a session with me, how exciting! I hope to answer any and all questions you have in this little guide! This guide will tell you more about what to expect, session pricing, collections, payment plan options, FAQs, and film add-ons. If for some reason your question is not answered please feel free to reach out to me so we can discuss it!

My experience with Kelly was five stars from start to finish. She is incredibly communicative and organized which I greatly appreciate! Being very Type A myself, I love how quickly Kelly responded to questions and how efficiently she runs her business. The actual shoot was seamless. She is so incredibly talented. I truly love our photos, and it's clear that she has perfected her craft and enjoys what she does. I would highly recommend Kelly to anyone looking for an incredibly professional and gifted photographer, and I'm looking forward to using her services in the future! - Erin (newborn session)

WHAT TO EXPECT

Before your session...

Once you book your session and pay your session fee, I will send you a detailed questionnaire, prep guide, and styling guide to help you before your session even happens! We want you to be as prepared as possible to have an amazing session!

During your session...

This depends upon what type of session you are doing. I will send you all of the details about what will happen during your session in your prep guide!

After Your Session...

After your session you will come to our studio for a private image reveal experience! Enjoy snacks and drinks on us, while you sit back and enjoy a personalized video slideshow of your images on the big screen. We will go over all of your images together to help you narrow down your favorites, so you can decide on which images and products you want! We will schedule your in-studio reveal and ordering appointment approximately 14 days after your session.

THE CLIENT WARDROBE CLOSET

"What do I wear to my session?" is the number one question I get from my clients. I have curated a beautiful selection of designer dresses for my momma clients to borrow from! This is mostly for my maternity and newborn clients, however it is open for all IN-STUDIO sessions. I also have a small selection of dresses for girls size 2-8 and sitter outfits for babies during their milestone sessions.

2. You can choose an amount you want to spend on products and collections and make payments until your session date, that way it is paid off prior to your session. This will allow you to get your products right away!

We had such a good time at our family session. Kelly captured some really amazing candid shots, that turned out beautiful. None of the poses were forced, so the photos were just lovely. -Laura (family session)

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What type of sessions do you offer? I shoot Maternity, Births, Fresh 48 hospital sessions, Lifestyle newborn sessions (in-studio or in-home), Baby milestone sessions, and Family sessions.

Where are you located? Do you travel? Our studio is located in Lake St Louis, MO. I do travel to clients for their in-home sessions and to birthing facilities throughout the St. Louis and surrounding areas. I am available for travel beyond the St. Louis and surrounding areas. Message me for more info about travel fees.

Can I book multiple sessions at one time? Yes! When booking multiple sessions at the same time, all sessions fees are due at the time of booking. If you book your Maternity, Fresh 48, and Lifestyle Newborn sessions together, you will receive a $125 print credit for each session reveal!!! Each session includes an individual session reveal and product orders cannot be combined. All session fees are due at the time of booking.

Do you have a baby's first year plan? We have the baby club! Become Baby Milestone Club Members at or before your newborn reveal session and receive THREE milestone sessions for $99. That is a $400 savings! These sessions take place at 6 months (baby only), 12 months (baby only), and 2 years (family session).

How long does it take to get my images back? It takes around 14 days for me to professionally hand edit and retouch each of your images. Your reveal can be scheduled anytime after that! Products do take an additional 2-4 weeks to come in so we recommend you have your session 6 weeks from when you need them, so you have ample time to choose and order your products.

I can't pose, do you help with that? Of course! I give direction and guidance to a point, such as positioning you in the best light, asking you to look at each, look at your baby, etc. However, my goal when shooting is to create the space and opportunity for connections to happen naturally. I will do all the hard work for you! You do not have to worry about a thing!

Do you offer films? Yes! You can add-on a film to any session, or birth story for an additional fee. Find out more about films at the end of this guide.

"There aren't any words...just tears! You are amazing and the film is priceless. I can never express how thankful we are that you, you captured things we had no idea you were filming...just perfect! These are the moments I never want to forget and every time I look at these pictures and watch the film I can't help but smile and cry...this truly is irreplaceable, thank you so much!" -Sarah (film session)
