Thank you so much for taking the time to inquire with Munchkin Moments by Stephanie LLC. Munchkin Moments is a full-service photography studio that creates a custom portrait experience for each and every client.  Cake smash sessions are scheduled on a separate day if you are also doing a family portrait session and adding a cake smash.  These can certainly be done outside during the warm months and studio sessions are also available on select days throughout the year.  If you are also doing family portraits, the amount of images given for each session is solely dependent on the cooperation of the photography subjects, however it is easy for me to get lots of great shots whether it's your child's loving on you, singing songs together, dance parties, snuggle time and more.  If you are looking for real life moments with the loves of your life, you've come to the perfect place, I take a photojournalistic approach to my sessions.  No worries, I'll still try to get everyone to look and smile for a few photos!  Cake smash sessions can be scheduled on a separate date.  I've learned over the years that sometimes a full family session and then putting your child in front of a cake tends to result in unhappy smashes.  We don't want that!  Signature Sessions are great for those kids that take a bit to warm up to strangers with a big camera pointing at them, lol ;), especially if you are joining me for the first time!  I want your child(ren) to feel comfortable around me and I will take the time for them to adjust, my priority for you as my client is to make sure you love all of your images.  Signature Family Session times are scheduled at least 1 hour prior to sunset.  If you would like an outdoor cake smash, I do offer mornings, but can be flexible.

I believe that people should only have what they love and will cherish forever, so there are multiple collections to choose from, including the mini newborn session option. I also provide payment plans to ensure that my clients feel comfortable purchasing the images and products they love at such a special time in their lives. Munchkin Moments retains the copyright to the images, but your final gallery will include a print release for you to print your images as you choose.

more important information:

BOOKING YOUR SESSION:  Please keep in mind that weekend sessions do book quickly and are popular during late summer/fall, please book early to secure a weekend date if desired.  Cake's are provided by Munchkin Moments.  Please make sure I am aware if your child has any food allergies, we can work around that!  Munchkin Moments is not responsible for any allergic reaction if not made aware.

WEEKEND BOOKINGS: Weekend evenings (Friday/Saturday) are reserved for Munchkin Signature sessions only.  These are meant for a golden hour session (1-2 hours prior to sunset).  If child(ren) are  young and have a bedtime during this time, I will ask that they have a late nap, are fed and your arrival time is 15 minutes prior to the session, so they have time to wake if they've fallen asleep in transit.   Please keep in mind other activities planned during that day - it should be a low key day leading up to the session!

MINI SESSIONS:  Additional high resolutions images are available for purchase.

WEATHER: Sessions will not be cancelled because of a weather forecast. Sessions may be cancelled due to severe weather conditions and will only be cancelled by MM within 30-45 minutes of the session time (locations and times are subject to change pending travel times and local weather). Morning sessions will not be cancelled due to wet grounds.  Sessions are not cancelled to due cloudy skies or fog. However, please be mindful of the weather conditions for proper attire.

PREPPING FOR YOUR SESSION:  Need help coordinating your outfits for your portraits?  I have you covered!  I am able to help you chose from your current wardrobe or have great places to shop (online & in store).  Keep in mind - coordinating is better than matching :)  Please have your child(ren) rested, fed, dressed, clean face and diaper, if necessary, and ready to go for their session. If you’re planning on your child napping on the way to the session, please arrive early so your child has time to wake up. I ask that the child’s face be carefully looked at for any “leftovers” (milk mustaches, crumbs, etc.). Failing to do so could result in additional charges to remove any “preventable dirtiness”, upon request from the client during the editing process. This will also extend the length of time for receiving the completed gallery. If drooling is excessive from teething or child(ren) have runny noses due to a cold or cold weather is a factor, please come prepared to wipe faces. Check the temperature! If it’s between 60-70 degrees your child must have on a long sleeve shirt and/or layered with a sweater. I will no longer photograph children that are not dressed appropriately for the day of your session. Children do not cooperate if they are cold! Spring/Summer type clothing will only be photographed if the temperature at the time of the shoot is over 70 degrees. Typically, this falls within the first week of June.  I love hair that blows in the wind and across faces, this is not edited during the process and can be subject to additional charges.  Please empty your pockets of any bulky items (i.e. phones, wallets, keys, etc.), leave the sunglasses in the car and remove hair-ties from wrists. Please also bring chapstick and/or lip gloss along, chapped looking lips are no fun - rock that lipstick momma!  Clients are responsible for all location fees and permits.

PROPS: I supply props but, I welcome any props you may have. I am always open to new ideas! If you see something you like in any of the galleries, be sure to mention it before your session.

RETOUCHING IMAGES: Any retouching beyond the basic retouching we automatically do (blemishes, small facial scars, bruises) will be charged a fee of $20 per image. This includes removal of small logos/stain on shirts, removing any “preventable dirtiness”, shirt wrinkles, hair from face, etc.  

EQUIPMENT:  I take pride in my work and only shoot with top of the line equipment. I currently shoot with a Nikon D5, 35 1.4 and 70-200 2.8

TURNAROUND TIME: A view and order session will be scheduled 14-21 days after your session.

 

about me

I have the two best jobs in the world; I am a mother to three beautiful girls (4, 8 & 13) and I'm blessed to work with babies, children, families and extended families to create lifelong memories. I've grown up and currently reside in Waterford, Wisconsin. I've always had photography in my heart and I'm so happy that I can provide these memories to all my families that visit me.

 

Thanks for considering being a part of the Munchkin Moments family!
