• When to Schedule
    • Newborns: Please contact me as soon as you know you would like to schedule your newborn session during your pregnancy. Newborns are best photographed in the first 3-10 days of life. I schedule your session for one week after your due date, then adjust the session date (if needed) once your little one arrives. Also, newborns are typically scheduled on weekdays in the late morning.
    • Maternity/Baby/Child/Family: I schedule for 6 months out at a time. Please contact me as early as 6 months before you would like to schedule a session. I typically begin scheduling fall sessions (Sept-Dec) in July and those months fill up rather quickly. I take a limited number of sessions per month.
  • How to Schedule
    • Please send me a message through the Contact section and let me know what type of session you are interested in. I will then send you an email requesting information that will help me know a bit more about your family and any specific requests you have.
  • What is Due to hold your Session Date
    • A retainer of $200 (this amount will be deducted from your chosen package total) is required at the time of scheduling and is due within 24 hours to hold your session date. I will send you a Paypal invoice to complete payment. Once your retainer is paid, I will send you an email confirming receipt of payment as well as your session date. We can then begin further discussing the particulars of your session!
  • What is Due 7 days before your Session Date
    • Within 10 days of your session, I will email you to see which package you would like to invest in (Low or High Resolution Package). You can always upgrade to a High Resolution Package after you receive your gallery, as well as order a la carte products.
  • Copyright and Policy
    • Due to the subjective nature of photography and the nature of digital products in particular, all fees are non-refundable. Please carefully review my work and make sure that I am the right photographic artist for you. 
    • Prices are subject to change without notice. Pricing is secured at the time of scheduling. All package and product fees are subject to 8.3% AZ sales tax.
    • Copyright remains with Erin McFarland Photography, LLC. Any infringement may violate federal law.
    • I require a signed liability and model release for each session. Documents will be sent to you in your session confirmation email to review and sign.
  • After your Session
    • The first step in my editing process is selecting 25-35 images to edit. I take hundreds of images at a session, but only the best are presented to you. There are many factors that determine which images I choose. Photography is an art that is comprised of how a photographic artist captures images and then the enhancements done in the "digital darkroom". Many hours are spent creating the final images presented to you in your gallery. When you hire me, you are also trusting me to make these decisions. I do not show additional images not presented in your gallery nor do I take additional processing requests. All images are final edits and are presented in color only (unless black and white images are decided on before the session). Unprocessed images are not shown or sold. If you would like a certain image in black and white, that can be requested in single high resolution image orders and print orders. Be aware that not every image is well suited for black and white art.
    • Within 2-3 weeks following your session, you will receive an online gallery containing 25-35 processed images ready to be downloaded, printed and shared.
    • Products and album orders may take 2-3 weeks for delivery.
