Frequently Asked Questions

 
 

How far in advance do you book?

I like to advise clients to book as far in advance as possible. I like to book at least 3-4 months to at least 48 hours in advance to insure we can schedule you at the best time.

Where can I find more information on session pricing?                  

All sessions are all-inclusive and include high resolution digital files and a print release. I offer different collections to accommodate every budget. Click HERE to access the Investment Page for more information, or feel free to contact me and I'd be happy to discuss my pricing and product information. 


When do we pay?

A non-refundable retainer is required at the time you book your session. The balance is due 24 hours prior to your session. Acceptable payment options are: Credit Card, or Cash. All sessions and products are subject to 8.25% Texas Sales Tax. 


Do you offer payment plans?

I understand that custom photography can be a big investment, and because I want everyone to be able to afford professional prints and products, I offer payment plans for any product amount over $799. You can split your payments into 4 weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly payments. Prints and products will not be delivered until all payments are made. 

I currently only offer payment plans for prints and products. This is not available for session collections. For sessions, please contact me to create a plan just for you.


Do you offer Gift Certificates?

Yes! Gift certificates are available for purchase for any occasion! You can purchase the gift certificate for any denomination. This makes a great gift for moms-to-be, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Birthday, Christmas Gifts, or just to say "I love you". 

Contact me for more details.


How do I book a session?

The quickest way to reach me is through the CONTACT LINK on my website, or by email at laurenzinnphotography@gmail.com. You can also message me at 713-825-4519.


What happens after I book my session?

You will receive a confirmation email from me within a couple days after booking with any additional information and session details. After your session, you can choose to have an Ordering session if you would like to order any professional products to additional digital images, but this is not required. Within 2-4 weeks, you will then receive your Final Online Gallery of your edited images to download and save to your computer for sharing or printing. 

 If you have any questions or concerns, we will address them prior to your session.  


Who should attend the photo session?

Anyone being photographed should attend the session. Tag alongs tend to be distracting and can become overwhelming, especially for children. Studio sessions should be limited to mom, dad, and the children being photographed. 

Please advise extended family members of my studio policies. You can politely inform them that space is limited and only immediate family members should attend. 


What should I bring to my NEWBORN SESSION?             

I provide outfits, bonnets, headbands, and all the props for Newborn Sessions. I do not photograph any outside props. But don’t worry! I have a ton of props to choose from in the studio.


Do NEWBORN SESSIONS include family & sibling shots?

Yes, but up to 6 members. After that its $15 per additional family member.


What should we wear to our FAMILY SESSION?

I always tell my clients to first pick color tones, such as dark/rich colors, or light/pastel colors. Decide what colors you are drawn to and go from there. Do not do matchy , matchy. Instead coordinate your colors. You can add a little pattern or a color that pops to some of the family members too.

If you are planning on newborn family photos in the studio, I prefer white or cream tones. I always shoot siblings & Newborn Families on a white backdrop. White looks amazing on everyone and is simple and timeless. I do have some dresses available for little girls and moms. Or, you can grab some simple white t-shirts for the session.
