FAQ

I know you probably have a few questions for me, so here are a few to get you started!

Where are you located?

I am based out of beautiful Pewaukee, Wisconsin. 

Where will my session take place?

All sessions take place in either your home or a location of your choice (unless otherwise specified.) I love when most of my sessions are done 90% outside. However, you choose, or if you'd like my advice, I am more than happy to help (I have a number of locations with really good spots, depending on what you're looking for). For newborn sessions, I am a firm believer than in-home sessions are the most unique and comfortable and produce the most genuine photographs.

What is your style of photography?

Your personality doesn't scream 'stiff cardboard cut-out' does it? I didn't think so! I shoot with movement, capturing the honest emotions and love you share. Those raw, organic laughs, the scrunch nose smiles or the simple in-betweens are what make you truly you. I help to guide you in a way that highlights these moments. so I guess you could say our style is authentic, meaningful and fun. If you jive with our vibe, get ready to share a fun day with friends chasing down some gorgeous light together!

How long does it take you to edit and deliver my photos?

For my smaller sessions, the max turnaround time is 3 weeks, and will depend on the time of the season. I pride myelfs on the  attention to detail and care on every image we provide to you. (I literally obsess over them, to make sure they are perfect before I release them!) Two to three weeks after our session, you'll receive a password protected online gallery where you can view and download your gallery. While you're waiting for you gallery, I love to send you and post sneak peeks from your session!

What will my session be like?

I like to keep things genuine and real. I encourage you to pick an activity or two you'd like to do with your kids to see you moving and interacting in an authentic way. Feel free to bring a few different outfit changes for your session as well. If your session is outside, we'll play a few games that really get your personalities to shine. I plan for one to two hours per shoot, although sometimes it only takes a half hour. Producing your authentic story with a few posed shots requires time and patience. I'll capture a lot of in-between shots of your interaction when you're not paying attention- your kid might be having a giggling fit, or a meltdown. I'll capture that too and I bet those will be some of your favorites. 

But my kids won't sit still...

I have yet to meet a kid that does. Kids should be kids while they can and I love to keep all of you moving during the session. Your session will include a few breaks, feel free to break out the snacks and give your little ones some more energy. Go with the flow and don't get frustrated if they won't looks at the camera. Your kid's personalities will shine bright.

What is the weather isn't what we expected?

Obviously Wisconsin weather isn't always what was anticipated. If the weather is not cooperating with thunderstorms or snowstorms, your session can be rescheduled for no extra charge. If your session needs to be cancelled due to weather, I will contact you at least 1 hour before your session. 

How do you feel about clients who bring their own ideas and props?

Yes, yes and yes! These photos tell YOUR story and I want them to be exactly what YOU want. Feel free to send me your Pinterest board prior to our session @alynicolephotography. Personal props are a great way to show off your personality and are encouraged for your photo sessions but are not required.​

Weddings Q & A

What can I expect at my pre-wedding consultation?

Let's grab a coffee or glass of wine and talk about what you want on your big day! We'll go over everything from color schemes to location to must have pictures and payment options. This is perfect time for you to come with all your Pinterest ideas so that I can make sure we capture it on your special day. 

Do you travel for weddings and engagement sessions? 

A thousand times YES! I love to travel. I am based out of Pewaukee, Wisconsin but my equipment, suitcase and passport are always ready for the next adventure! All travel costs for weddings in Wisconsin are included in your price. 

Do you take payment plans? 

I do whatever we can to make the process as easy as possible for you. There are a few payment options available, however, I just require the final balance to be paid in full 4 weeks prior to your wedding date. If this is something you're interested in, we can discuss this more at your pre-wedding consultation.

How do I secure my date and book with you?

It all starts with filling out the contact form! Just fill in the boxes and we will contact you to chat about the details.  Once you decide to book me, YAY! We will set up a consultation meeting (usually over some coffee or wine!) to go over all your wedding wishes, pricing, and payment options. A signed contract and a non-refundable down payment is required to book your date. The deposit can be used towards your package total or towards an engagement session! 

Do you help with my Day-Of Timeline? 

Absolutely! Aside from your LOVE and saying ‘I do’ to each other, LIGHT is what we chase and it allows us to capture the incredible, natural and breathtaking images you hire us for. Portraits are so important to your day and we want to make sure they take a priority. We will help with your schedule to make sure we have all the gorgeous golden goodness in line. 

When can I see my pictures?
