Health & Saftey

Employees:

No staff member ever works sick at any time. The staff and Diana constantly wash their hands and use sanitizer. During your newborn session you will see Diana Spray her hands, props, fabrics and anything that touches your baby with alcohol.

The Studio:

The studio is kept clean and sanitised daily and especially in-between clients and sessions. All fabrics that touch baby's skin are washed/sanitized after the session.

Clients:

Because Diana works with the smallest of babies, it is the business policy of our studio that NO SICK KIDS are brought into the studio. No illness is too small. Please keep in mind Diana has a family and also works with babies. Everyone's safety is always a concern to us

Questions & Answers

How much is a session?

Interested in a portrait session? Email me directly, I can forward you our session information guide. Email me at dianasmythphotography@gmail.com

Can I book a "mini session?"

A Mini session is a short 15 minute session in one location where I book back to back clients. The cost of permits, time and staff is shared among all the client's session fees, making the cost of your session lower. A private mini session can not be possible, because I can not travel, pay for permit and offer a 15 min. session.

Is a Mini Session right for me?

A mini session is about 15 min. long. I can tell you, toddlers do not do great in a mini session. Because toddlers need warm up time. You do not have warm up time in a mini session, you must arrive ready to go. What usually happens is mom is frustrated, everyone is rushing and you get a gallery that you are not happy with. Consider booking a full family session. Have the time to capture candid moments, play games with the kids. Get those snuggles in, Your toddlers and kids will have more fun in a full session than a mini.

How do I reserve a session?

You can email me at dianasmythphotography@gmail.com Our hours are 930am - 3pm Tuesday-Saturday. You can also fill out a contact form and have us call you. A non refundable booking fee is required to book a session.

What do the packages come with?

Please email me for your pricing guide. Every session includes a certain amount of digital images. Additional images, prints, and albums may be purchased separately.

Do you offer discounts?

During the fall and holiday season it takes a bit longer because it's my busiest time of the year. Usually we say 3 weeks in the fall, but aim for less. If you have purchased a digital package, we will send an online gallery for you to choose.

This depends on what you are ordering. Most orders take around 2 weeks, however retouching may add time in delivery. We will let you know your estimated delivery time at time of ordering

Do you do cake smashes for children?

Yes we do! Smash sessions can be booked two ways. Child focused, which I love! No props. Or full blown theme sessions. Please refer to our gallery so you understand how my smash sessions. Please understand theme sessions cost more because we special order your backdrops and props for the set. NO OUTSDIE PROPS ARE ALLOWED IN THE STUDIO

Do you photograph children?

Oh yes! We can do studio portraits, outside portraits, Princess, or couture sessions, Talk to me about what your vision is and we can make it happen.

I have pre booked my newborn now what? What if my baby comes early or late?

We ask that all clients email or call within 24-48 hours of having your baby. Most babies are booked anywhere from 8-10 or even 12 or 14 days depending on the babys weight. Letting us know when you have your baby early enough allows rooms for re scheduling and adjusting.

I missed the newborn window and my baby is now 2 months old do you take them?

We photograph babies of any age. Your baby is no longer a newborn however you can still book a session. Please understand the baby most likely will not be able to do newborn poses or wraps and they are usually awake.
