FAQs

What is a session?

Amika Gair Photography offers a variety of session types (portrait, newborn and mini). Each session varies in length and initial investment. The session fee does not include any files, prints or products. All products (including digital images) will be available at your ordering appointment with collections beginning at $450.00. Á la carte pricing is also available. For additional information on each session type please see the pricing & packages page.

How far in advance should I book your photography services?

Booking early is strongly recommended. We are busiest between April to October so please book accordingly. Wedding clients, please note: holiday weekends (Memorial, July 4th, and Labor Day weekends) book quickly. Please keep this in mind and be sure to contact us early in order to book your important date. By booking early, you’ll secure the date for your session. You can always reschedule, if the need arises.

How far will you travel?

Amika Gair Photography loves to travel. We do our best to serve all of Connecticut and the surrounding New England area. Currently, our travel costs are negotiated into our pricing so no additional costs will incur. If you’re interested in a destination wedding, please contact me so we that can discuss the cost.

What should I wear?

The clothes you choose should be comfortable and reflect your child’s or your family’s style. We recommend bright colors, jeans, or simple patterns. For family portraits, it’s fun to choose a color palette to work from. And footwear should definitely be comfortable and easy to walk in, although bare feet is always fun too.

How long does it take to receive my final products?

Amika Gair Photography is committed to providing a pristine product. To allow for this standard, we ask for one week to process and edit your photos. We recommend you set up an ordering appointment within two weeks of your portrait session. Following the ordering appointment, you can expect your final products within 10 days.

Who retains copyright privileges?

Amika Gair photography retains the copyright for all digital images. Digital images in a collection are meant for your personal enjoyment only. Prints and other products must be order through Amika Gair Photography to ensure the highest quality product is being provided.

How many photos should I expect to be presented with after my session?

The number of photos depends on the type of session. A portrait session will have between 25-30 pristinely edited photographs. A mini session will show between 12-15 edited photographs. A newborn session will show between 20-25 edited photos for you to choose from.
