Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do you pronounce Scheid?
Scheid is pronounced SHIDE, rhymes with “hide”. I blame my husband for the German name! 🙂
Q: Is there a session fee?
No. In order to book a session, you do have to place a $300 non-refundable deposit. At the ordering session, that $300 will transfer over as a print credit towards any thing you purchase.
Q: How do I book a portrait session?
You can call me at 651-998-9675 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you some preliminary information about how I work and what you can expect during the portrait session. If you choose to proceed to book a portrait session, I will send you a link and password to access the online contract and questionnaire. Once I have received the signed contract and the non-refundable session fee, I will schedule a pre-consultation meeting immediately. I really like to sit down and meet before the session so we can go over a client’s goals, attire, location and time and any questions the client may have. I think this meeting is critical to making each session a success. At that time we will also go over policies, available packages & products I offer. Once we have confirmed the location and time of the portrait session, I will make arrangements for the hair and makeup artist for the session and have the personal stylist contact the client to schedule a visit.
Q: What should I wear?
Clothes are such an important factor in a photo session, that once you book your session, Scheid Studios will arrange for a personal stylist to make a home visit to help you create the best look for your session free of charge. During her visit, she will look over your existing wardrobe and help create a look that will reflect your personality. Having a professional help you choose the right outfit will not only give you a polished look but will give you the added assurance that you are looking your very best for your session. The personal stylist is not available for newborn photo sessions.
Q: Do you do maternity sessions?
Maternity sessions can only be booked as an add-on for $150 with a booked newborn session.
Q: Do you shoot weddings?
I do! I only do a select number of weddings per year, so please contact me at (651) 998-9675 or email@example.com to see if I am fully booked. Scheid Studios is LGBT friendly.
Q: What forms of payment do you accept?
I accept cash, personal checks, money orders and all major credit cards.
