Portrait FAQ

A Be Creative Photography children’s photo session begins with a phone consultation so please give us a call or email to get started.  We photograph newborns, infants, children and families on location.  The experience is relaxed and fun and the results are beautiful images of natural moments with your children.  After your photo session we schedule an in-person meeting to showcase your images and create your order.

How long have you been in business?
We have been in business for 5 years and this is our full time job.

Where are you located?
We are located in Wyckoff, NJ 07481.  Available by appointment only

Do you have a studio?
We have a meeting and gallery space in our home for consultations.  We love to shoot on location in natural light.  Either at your home where your children are the most comfortable or at a location we choose together that offers really fantastic photo opportunities.

What is your style?
A children’s session with Be Creative Photography is relaxed, fun and creative.  The images are of the storytelling nature, real moments and a lot of laughter!  You will not find fake smiles, awkward poses, or ugly backdrops with us.  Our goal is to capture the authentic laughter and the true nature of your children that warms your heart on a daily basis.

When should I book my session?
We reserve session dates from January- October only.  You should book your session 3-4 months in advance for best availability.  For Newborn sessions you should book a date while you are still expecting.  It is strongly recommended that the session take place within the first 2 weeks of the babies birth.  We will pencil in a day for you around your due date and once the baby arrives call us right away to schedule the date for that week.

How will we know what to do?
We have an over the phone pre-planning consultation with you to get to know each other.  We will discuss location, clothing, and style of photography to help us prepare for your photo session.

When is the best time of day for our session?
We will discuss the time of day based on your childrens schedule and when the best light will be.

What should we wear?
This varies from person to person which is why we discuss it beforehand.  Generally we suggest that you and your children wear what you feel you look the best in and expresses your personality.  Do not be afraid of vibrant colors and accessories.  As a family your clothes should coordinate but they do not have to be matchy matchy. We love fun props like hats and shoes or coats for your children.  Newborns are usually nude most of the time.

We want to use the images as decoration in our home but we are not sure which images to choose, can you help us?
Absolutely!  This is the most common request from our clients.  Our in-person meeting is very helpful in this area.  We will help you choose the best images to showcase in your home.  It’s our specialty.

Can you come to my house to help me decide where to hang images?
Consultations at your home are available for a small fee.

Do you do custom framing?
Yes, we are a one stop shop.  You can choose your frames in our meeting space after your photo session.

What other products do you offer?
Some of our most popular items are loose prints, framed prints, fine art gallery wraps, custom albums, custom birth announcements, holiday cards, greeting cards, invitations, holiday items, etc.

Do you do birth announcements and holiday cards?
Yes we do custom greeting card designs using your photos.

How do we order images?
We showcase your photo session during an in-person meeting.  You can browse through our samples for inspiration.  Most people make the majority of their order on this day.  Afterwards your images go online for 10 days and can be shared with friends and family for additional orders.
