Frequently Asked Questions

Where are you located/what areas do you cover?

I am based just outside of Boston and work in the city itself and the surrounding areas, including Arlington, Brookline, Cambridge, Charlestown, Concord, Dedham, Dover, Framingham, Lexington, Lincoln, Milton, Natick, Newton, Quincy, Somerville, Waltham, Wayland, Wellesley, and Weston but will happily travel!  A travel fee will apply for areas outside a 25 mile radius from zip code 02481.

Where will my session be held?

I am a natural light, on location photographer. I am happy to work with you to choose the perfect location for your session. Newborn sessions are held in the comfort of your home.

What should I wear?

Your clothing is entirely up to you. For children, I suggest comfortable solid-color clothes, as patterns and logos can be distracting. There is no need to match perfectly, but coordinating a few colors between subjects often looks best. To get you started with some ideas, there are a number of Pinterest boards dedicated to coordinating photo session wardrobes. Because my style emphasizes beautiful light and natural interactions, I often suggest a pretty neutral palette and clothes that everyone can feel comfortable wearing.

How many images can we expect?

All sessions result in at least 30-40 final edited images, which will be provided in a gallery in both color and black-and-white. There is no limit on the number of images that I am willing to edit and deliver to the gallery.

Tell me more about the Digital Files and Print Release:

august & iris Photography, LLC retains the copyright for all photos that are taken. The print release allows clients to use and print the photos for personal use.

Are weekend sessions available?

Yes, photo sessions are available any day of the week. Weekend sessions are most popular and should be booked well in advance, if possible.

What if we need to reschedule?

As a mother of four little ones, I know how unpredictable life can be (and how often kids get sick!). If you need to reschedule, please contact me as soon as possible so that we can arrange an alternative date.

The weather is not cooperating. What do we do?

In the case of inclement weather, I am happy to do indoor shots in your home. If you prefer outdoor shots, we can discuss options for rescheduling the session.

Can we share images from our session on Facebook, IG or other social media sites?

Absolutely! However, please tag @augustandiris and/or include credit with any photo (ex: “Photo credit:”)

I am interested in a newborn session. When should I book?

Please contact me when you are in your late 2nd or 3rd trimester, and we can plan on some tentative times based on your due date. I fully understand that deliveries can be unpredictable and will work with you to schedule a time within the first few weeks of your baby’s birth. Typically, we schedule a tentative date and then adjust depending on when the baby comes and how you settle in at home. If you have already delivered and decided last minute that you want photos of your new little love taken, please don’t hesitate to contact me, and I will try to accommodate you!

Do you do weddings?

I LOVE love + emotion + connection and would be thrilled to capture this for you. I am currently building my wedding portfolio and would be happy to discuss pricing. Please contact me for more information!
