Can you take pictures outdoors?  Yes, we take pictures at Columbus Botanical Garden, Uptown Columbus, or even on your own property.
Do you offer digital files? Yes, we offer packages that include prints, digital files, canvases, Keepsake Albums, and a combination of all of these.  However, digital files are priced higher than prints because they allow you to make multiple copies of the same image.
Can we schedule a mini session?  We offer minis several times throughout the year and it is a great time to try us out.  Santa visits in November, and we advertise at least three more minis that are theme-based.  Make sure you like us on Facebook so you don’t miss out.  We do not offer minis as a substitute for a full length session.
Speaking of newborn sessions, why are they so expensive?  Once you have participated in a newborn session, you no longer need to ask this question! Mr. Tim (my husband and chief baby-poser at JWP) and I have several years experience in posing newborns.  It takes lots of practice, a heaping dose of patience, and extraordinary skill to safely pose your baby in the sweet and creative poses that you see on our pages- and many poses are composites- they are several pictures “put together” in Photoshop for safety.  
We also have a large investment in proper equipment, props, clothing, and of course a beautiful studio in which to take pictures.  Each picture that you purchase is meticulously hand-painted in Photoshop to remove baby acne, red, yellow, and flaky skin, brighten or soften the image, and transform it into the masterpiece that will grace your walls.
Are we obligated to purchase anything?  Yes, once you decide to schedule a session with us, we require a retainer that pays for your sitting fee and holds your place on our calendar, then you pay for the minimum-priced print or product package when you hold your session.
How far in advance should I schedule a newborn session?  If you are planning to also hold a maternity session with us, which is discounted for our newborn clients, you should call me when you are about 5 months along.  Also, we schedule less newborn sessions close to holidays so be sure and call early if you are due then. 
Will I have to agree to allow JWP to post my pictures on social media and the website if you take my pictures? Absolutely not! We respect your wishes regarding privacy and will never share your pictures without specifically asking your permission.
Do you offer a military discount? We honor our military with a special gift. 
Who do you use for models?  We choose our own clients who have invested time and money into our services to model for us when we take pictures for Feltman Brothers Clothing and for our own promotional projects.  Occasionally we ask clients for the names of friends whose children meet age and gender specifications also.
