Frequently Asked Questions

1. When should I schedule my maternity photo shoot?

   - We recommend scheduling your maternity shoot between 28 to 36 weeks into your pregnancy. This time frame allows for a beautiful and comfortably rounded belly while reducing the risk of last-minute scheduling conflicts.


2. What photography services do you offer?

   - We offer Maternity, Branding, Personal (i.e. birthday sessions),  Graduate, Couples and Family Sessions only. We do not offer event, newborn, or wedding photography services at this time.


3. Are prints included with the session?

   - Prints are not included with any packages. We only include high resolution Digital Images which will be sent to your email for you to download. You will have the ability to purchase prints separately after your session. We offer a variety of print sizes to choose from. You will have the ability to print anywhere you'd like if you decide to print elsewhere.


4. What items should I bring to my session?

   - To ensure you look your best, consider bringing items such as:

     - Lotion or moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated

     - Combs or brushes for hair touch-ups

     - Makeup and cosmetics for any desired touch-ups

 5. How long does it take to receive the selected images?

   - You can expect to receive your selected images within 2 weeks after you make your selection of photos to edit. We take the time to professionally retouch your photos to ensure they meet our quality standards. Please schedule accordingly if you need photos back by a certain date. Rush services are available for a fee of $100.

6. Can I bring props or specific clothing for my session?

   - Balloons and confetti are not permitted in the studio. If you have a prop request, please inquire prior to scheduling a session to ensure we are able to include it in your session. We offer a maternity client closet for you to choose outfits, but if you have any personal items that hold sentimental value and you'd like to include in your photos. Just let us know in advance, so we can plan accordingly.


7. Can I schedule a consultation before booking a session?

    - Absolutely! We encourage you to schedule a consultation to discuss your preferences, ideas, and any questions you may have before booking your session.


8. Is there a cancellation, late or rescheduling policy?

    -At the time the contract takes effect, ORAE Photography shall reserve the date and time agreed upon, and not make any other reservations or accept other clients for said date and time. For this reason, to minimize loss of business, if the session is cancelled, you are a no show, or more than 15 minutes late to the session the client forfeits retainer and a new retainer will be required to schedule a new session. If we are notified at least 24 hours in advance, you may reschedule once within 30 days of session date or a new deposit is required. 


9. May I bring additional guests to the session?

    -You are welcome to bring one guest to the studio unless they are included in your session or the parents of the person being photographed. If more than one person accompanies you to the session, they will be asked to wait in the lobby. (If there are special circumstances that will require more than one person, please advise us so we can accommodate you. 


10. Do you provide wardrobe for any of your sessions?

    -Wardrobe is only provided for Maternity clients. For all other clients, you are required to bring your own wardrobe. For graduates, if you want a cap & gown or senior portrait style photo,  you must bring your own cap & gown etc. for your session.
