F. Your Session:
Newborn sessions are conducted at clients home within the 6-14 days after birth.
Fresh 48 sessions are conducted at the hospital withinthe first 48 hours of birth.
G. Final Images:
The client should take the time to review samples of the photographer's work to make sure that her style of photography and editing is a good fit (these can be seen at www.shannonkrusling.com or facebook.com/shannonkruslingphotography).
When a client books with with Shannon Krusling Photography, he/she gives the photographer full reign over session styling and artistic editing of photos. The photographer will be choosing the best of the images to edit and present so if the client sees anything that he/she doesn't care for during the session, he/she should PLEASE speak up. It is Shannon's goal to provide all clients with pictures that they will love. Her newborn editing workflow includes brightening, removing any baby acne and prominent skin flakes, reducing redness and yellowing caused by jaundice, softening skin to even out blotchiness and give a smooth texture, adding a slight "glow" to the skin, and sharpening to bring out features. If either parent is opposed to any of this, Shannon's style of photography may not be a good fit. Better to discuss this now then after the session as there are no refunds.
In addition, Shannon Krusling Photography does capture many images during your session, you will see only those images selected by the photographer. Each image is carefully chosen by the photographer to ensure maximum artistry and technical perfection. Not all images will be shown and are removed from my archives permanently.
H. Delivery of Images:
After the session all sessions will be uploaded to a password protected online gallery within 2 weeks of the session.
