What should my child wear for the fairy or fishing experience?
We provide wardrobe for children ages 12 months to 12 years. If you child wears a size we do not provide please bring them to their session dressed and ready for their appointment.
How should we prepare?
A few days before gather everything you plan to bring. If you must cut your child’s hair, do so a week or two before the event. If possible, plan your session during a time that corresponds with your smallest child’s ‘best time.’ When you arrive, take a deep calming breath and trust us. We’ve been doing this a long time and we know what we’re doing. Our goal is to not only give you amazing artwork but a great experience. Just sit back and watch the magic unfold.
Is the session fee per family or per child?
The session price is all inclusive for immediate family. If you would like images of extended family, like a cousins picture for Grandma, we will happily book your two families back to back. However, each family unit will need their own session.
Where are you located?
Our charming home studio, nestled among the rolling hills of West Virginia, is just 20 minutes from Interstate 70 outside of Wheeling, WV.
What is your late policy?
You must be on time for your session or risk forfeiting it. Our sessions are booked back to back all day long and we operate at full capacity.
What is your cancelation policy?
All sessions are non-refundable. If you need to cancel your session for any reason you forfeit your session retainer fee. You may reschedule once at no charge as long as you are outside of 30 days prior to your appointment. Any reschedule requests done within 30 days of your appointment can be made if there is a date available for a $75 rescheduling fee.
Will we see our images the same day as our session?
You will view your images immediately following your session. Your ordering session is adults only. We provide childcare with movies, books and puzzles to keep your children busy while you order. This is the only time you will view your images so please come prepared to order and make sure all decision makers are present.
What is the turn around time between ordering and receiving artwork?
You can expect your finished pieces to be ready for pick up at the studio 8 weeks after your session.
What type of investment can I expect?
Although no purchase is necessary, most people fall in love with what we create and want to have these images as an heirloom to look back on forever…long after their children outgrow the magic of childhood. Our portraits start at $550 and our albums begin at $1,800, our large exquisite handprinted masterpiece portraits start at $14,000. Some families spend hundreds, others spend thousands. We don't have a price list to send out since all of our portraits are unique to each client. We price everything during your viewing and selection appointment because pricing varies depending upon the finish, size and quantity of what you select and every person wants something different. We also offer in house financing options, some with no interest options, to help clients be able to get what they love most.
Do you sell digital files?
We are not a digital only studio however, we do have the ability to discuss the option of a matching digital of any purchased portrait.
Is there any purchase required or can I just come for the experience?
There is no minimum investment required on sessions, however most people plan to invest in one of our fine art pieces to showcase on their wall or our storybook albums.
