Features Overview

Mini Sessions
Mini sessions are NOT always available to schedule at any given time of the year. There will be dates for mini sessions happening for a special occasion. Such as a Valentine's themed day, 4th of July, back to school or Halloween, etc. Or sometimes I will just come up with a fun idea and offer a day of mini shoots!  It is very rare that Christmas themed mini sessions will be available. The fall season is the busiest time of year and typically will be fully booked by the middle of September. Schedule your sessions for Fall early.


By keeping up with the Facebook fan page, you will  be able to catch  the mini sessions IF and  when they become available. 
So be sure to become a fan of Heather Marshall Photography.  

How long does it take to get my photos?

Your  photos will be delivered within  4 weeks  from the date of your session. 
I do my best to complete the processing of a photo session as quickly as possible and try to return the images much sooner than 4 weeks, but can only guarantee they will not take longer than 4 weeks.  
If you need your images back faster than 4 weeks, you can add a $50 rush fee. 
This will allow you to have your session back in 4 business days.
Weddings are a wait time of 8-10 weeks. 
Rush fee for a wedding is $200 that will get you your images back in 2 weeks.

-What images do I get?

**All images selected by  Photographer**  

Photographer chooses all images that are considered the 'best' of the shoot. Every image is hand selected and edited by photographer. If you would like to purchase your entire session of all images taken you have the option, but I must know before or the day of our session. 
-I do not offer all of the original images after the session has been processed. 
-Entire session will included 'blurry or blinked eyed' images, all images are UNedited. 
-To purchase your entire session including all unedited images the fee is $50 and is due at the time of your session along with the standard remaining balance. 
-Each additional requested edited image is $30.  

-What if I lose my flash drive? Can I get a new one from you at any time? How long do I have if I do lose it?

Photo sessions are ONLY saved in archives for up to 12 weeks after your session date. Please be careful with how you handle your USB flash drive when you receive it. You should always download them directly to your computer as soon as you receive it. If you lose your USB and need to request a new one I can not guarantee they will still be available. IF you need to order an additional flash drive and they are still available for a USB the fee is $75. 
-How do I prepare for our Newborn session?
- The day of your newborn session there are a few things you can do to help your little one be extra sleepy for their shoot. You do NOT want your newborn to be awake for their photos. 

The sleepier and younger they are the better so they are still flexible and easier to pose. A few hours before your session try keeping your baby awake by talking to them, messing with them and not letting them stay bundled up in their crib or swing. If you are lucky enough to have a visitor over to meet your new baby, ask them to keep baby  awake while you shower and get ready for your photos. This will give your family member/friend some bonding time, and help us for the photo session later. This will help in making sure they are extra sleepy for us later. I stress to all newborn clients that you MUST do this. Newborns can not be awake for their photo session. They will not hold still and stay posed if they are awake. 

DO NOT-  put your baby in a regular outfit when bringing them for a photo session. The more difficult it is to remove their clothing the harder it is for me to keep them asleep. ALWAYS have your baby wear a simple onsie that buttons, or a body sleeper that zips. Nothing that will have to be removed by pulling it over their heads. 

You REALLY need to make sure keeping them awake for at least one hour before the session happens. It is EXTREMELY important this happens because they will not be cooperative during the session.

-Also, depending on how long the drive is for you to get to the studio, nurse the baby RIGHT before you leave to come for the photos. If you have a long drive have one parent sit in the back with the baby to keep him or her awake.  Don't wrap their diaper too tight on them so it avoids deep lines around their bodies, and try to put them in a body sleeper that unzips or buttons, nothing that has to go over their heads to prevent waking them up and getting them worked up. If you choose to only have the baby photographed, that is just fine, it will allow more time to have different props and combinations of the baby alone for their photos. 
*IF parents take photos with baby do not wear heavy jewelry, or any jewelry. Dark clothing, solid black, or solid white, soft blues, pale pinks. Keep clothing very clean and simple.  
* Don't forget: Extra formula, diapers, a soft blanket they use from home, burp cloths, baby wipes, a back up shirt for both parents just in case the baby spits up, also important GAS DROPS! 




General POLICIES: 
Photo sessions are 45-60 minutes. If you are late by 5 minutes or 20+ minutes your session will NOT go longer than the original end time. Whatever time your session is supposed to begin, it ends one hour after. Being late to a photo session is not the responsibility of the photographer to make up extra time. If your session starts at 1:00pm, it is over at 2:00pm. No exceptions with this. In the busy seasons photo sessions are scheduled back to back and if one family is late it is not fair to the family after to lose time during their photo session or for the photographer to feel behind and worried. Being on time is the responsibility of the client. Please be respectful of this. 

* All photo sessions require a retainer. When a date and time is chosen a PayPal invoice is sent to Client and is due IMMEDIATELY. If a retainer is not paid the date is not locked in on the calendar. The date and time you may be requesting will not be held without a retainer and will be given to the next family requesting the date/time if you have not secured with a paid retainer.  
* FINAL BALANCE IS ALWAYS DUE AT THE PHOTO SESSION. The retainer will lock in the photo session date, the remaining balance of the Photo session fee is due AT the photo session, NOT any time later.
* NO CREDIT OR DEBIT CARDS ARE ACCEPTED. Cash only, or personal check. 
* IF a check does not clear client will be responsible for bank fees charged. Images will not be delivered until fees are paid.  
* If you are not satisfied with how your clothing looks on you in your photos after the session is completed and delivered for any reason, this is not the responsibility of the photographer to do any kind of free make up photo session. Please remember that the phrase "Oh, you can photo shop that right!?" is NOT true. Photo retouching can only go so far. 
* Iron your cloths, make sure they're flattering to you, and most importantly do not wear white. 
* If you plan on multiple outfits this does not mean the session will be longer. You can pay for more time if you wish. This needs to be discussed ahead of time, if not then your session is still only one hour. Take into consideration the time it will take you to change outfits. 
* If you do not have your children already dressed for pictures and plan to dress them when you arrive, then arrive 15-20 minutes early to do so please! 
* If your child is uncooperative for any reason we will do our best to capture what we can, but a non smiley and grumpy toddler/child is what we will have to remember this stage by, the photo shoot will not be done free of cost for any reason. 
* If you can not make it to your photo session and do not give a notice 14 days prior your retainer is liquidated and you will need to submit a new retainer to reschedule a photo session for another date.  
* If you schedule multiple sessions over a period of time and are continually late you will be required to pay your entire session fee ahead of time, and will not be refunded if you cancel less than 10 days before the date of our session, nor will the photo session last longer than your end time if you arrive late. 
* A common question is: "Can I get you to post just a quick sneak peek?" Or "Can you email me just a couple to print for the event I need these photos for since it is in just a few days?" - The answer is always, 'NO' . A rush order option is available for all clients. You can choose to rush your photos and have them completed much faster than the original waiting period of 3-4 weeks. If you do not choose this option your photos will be completed within the average time frame of everyone else. 
* Your photos are NOT given to you on a USB without choosing the upgraded option to order a USB. 
All client images are fully touched up, edited carefully, individually by hand and require professional printing if you would like the best quality images printed in your home. Clients receive an ONLINE GALLERY with a specific link of their own photos that is emailed to them. This link is the highest quality guaranteed and most affordable place to order prints. IF you choose to order your images on a USB and print elsewhere there is no guarantee the quality will be the best.

I put a lot of energy into my work and I thrive on connecting to people. I'm all about quality, not quantity and staying true to my style. I usually only share images in my portfolio that are in-between moments because I like capturing candid interaction. People tend to naturally pose together and look at the camera but if I am being honest, those aren't the ones I love most (I know, how selfish of me, gasp!) but I do still take and deliver those because they're the classics, the ones printed and distributed to family + friends, the ones framed on the wall. I might coach you into a pose but it's the moments you're coaxing a smile out of your children or coming together to hug up that turn out to be my all time favorites because they feel more real. I adore the funny faces and bloopers just as much as the highlights.....



I'm genuinely looking to work with people who aren't just looking for someone check off their list, because I won't treat my clients like just a number on my schedule. I draw my inspiration entirely from the location chosen, the people in front of my camera and the lighting I am given at any session or wedding. Your trust in me is oh-so important to deliver creative + honest documentation. 

The process is simple:  

01. Pay your payments online

02. Sign your contract electronically

03. We take some amazin' photos

04. I post a sneak peak on Facebook

05. Your online gallery is delivered 


I'm a simple person, I pack light and carry with me only what I absolutely need. I work with whatever location or lighting situation I am given, whether it's the dreamy sunrise, the harsh mid-day sunlight or a golden sunset. I try to only schedule portraits at sunset as that flows better with my style, also because when the sun takes over and pours into my camera, my heart skips a beat....but I'm experienced shooting any time of day and I work with a flash setup indoors. I love bright bold colorful images just as much as I love black and white images. I want my images to evoke an emotional response, I want them to be interesting and filled with love. While I only deliver well composed in-focus images I have to admit that sometimes I like 'em a little grainy and imperfect.
