Dick's Studio of Ithaca

Frequently asked questions

When is the best time to photograph
my newborn or child?

Newborns are best photographed within the first ten days after birth. This improves our chances of having a sleepy snuggly newborn.

Children have no set time to be photographed, just make sure they have napped and eaten prior to the appointment. Having small "non-messy" snacks is also a good idea.

How much can I expect to invest?

Our sessions start at $50 and our portrait prints start at $15.

Please contact the studio for a full price list or send us an email and we will get back to you.

Can we purchase a CD?

Yes, and a full printing rights release is also included.

How do I see my images after the session?

Two weeks after your session you will receive an email or phone call with instructions on how to view and share your online proofing gallery with family and friends, all from the comfort of your home.

You will have 2 weeks to place your order before your gallery expires. A re-hosting fee of $35 is required if you need additional time.

Where will we shoot our session?

The location and clothing are key in a fabulous portrait shoot. Think outside the box, think about something your child or family loves to do and play off of that.

What about clothing?

So very important! You want the clothing to enhance the image. Don't be matchy-matchy.

Ladies
Go for patterns and florals, some high heels, fun jewelry and fancy scarves.

Guys
Play off your wife... layer things, but avoid shirts with logos and white socks!

Kids
Bring out the color, for a little pop! Tutus, vests, fun hats and colorful tights!

What if the weather is bad?

The weather can change on a dime. We will not cancel an appointment unless we have to.
