All products (including digital files) will be available at your ordering appointment. Collections begin at $450. Á la Carte pricing is begins $125 for prints.

Booking early is strongly recommended. We are busiest between April and December, 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 date. By booking early, you’ll ensure the date for your session. You can always reschedule, if the needs arises.
Amika Gair Photography loves to travel. We do our best to serve all of Connecticut and western Massachusetts. If you’re looking for our services outside of this radius, or a destination wedding please contact me so that we can discuss the cost.
The clothes you choose to wear should be comfortable and reflect your child or family’s style. We recommend jeans, bright colors or simple patterns. For family portraits it works well to choose a color palette to work from. For example if the color is purple, dress a child in lavender dress, another in eggplant pants and a seersucker shirt and perhaps a third child in jeans and patterned purple shirt. Wardrobe and styling tips and consultation are available.
Amika Gair Photography is committed to providing a pristine product. To allow for this standard the typical turn around time for family, portrait and maternity sessions is 10-12 business days. Newborn sessions will see a turn around time of 7 business days. If you live with my travel radius, an ordering session will be set up and products may be purchased at that time. If you’re outside my travel radius a password protected online gallery will be set up for your viewing convenience. Following your ordering appointment, you can expect your products in 12-14 business days depending on the nature of the product.
Amika Gair Photography retains copyright for all digital images, unless you decided to buy the copyrights to the photos. By buying the rights, you are now able to print, post and play with your photos without a watermark. Digital images within collections are meant for personal enjoyment only. An upgrade to the rights of the images is available. Prints and other products must be order through Amika Gair Photography to ensure that the highest quality product is being delivered.
The number of photos depends on the type of session. A portrait, family, family or pet session will have between 25-30 pristinely edited images. A mini session will contain between 12-15 pristinely edited photographs. Newborn sessions will see between 15-20 images of the infant or up to 30 images with family, siblings or pets.
Amika Gair Photography holds onto session images for one calendar year from date of session. The images will then go into my archives for another calendar year from date of session. An unarchiving fee of $75 will incur for any purchases decided to be made after the first year. After this two year period, all images from the session will be deleted forever.
