How do I book a session with Mattie Genaux Photography?
Either call the office, email, or message our FB business page. We will get your selected date and time slot chosen and your name in the calendar. New clients will need to provide their name, phone number, and email address to set up their account. Regular sessions all require a $20 retainer fee to secure their time slot. Special sessions or holiday minis might require specific retainers. These retainers can be paid either online or in person. We do NOT take payments over the phone.
Do you shoot on location? Yes. We shoot anywhere in Wayne County, Georgia for free. All other locations will require a travel fee. Please contact our office to get an estimate of how much that fee will be.
Do you have any props? Yes. Our studio is fully equipped with outfits for newborns and certain sizes for older children. We also have maternity gowns and gowns for new mothers. Our collection also includes various baskets or buckets, chairs of all sizes, wings, banners, and a hoarders amount of baby wraps!
When should I schedule my newborn session? ASAP! Newborn sessions typically last almost 2 hours. With this in mind we make sure we have certain time slots available for those sessions. While babies can be unpredictable (especially their birth) we soft book newborns when their arrival date is uncertain. Each mother is put on an expectant baby list which lets our studio know during which times of the month we need to schedule more lightly. As newborns are only tiny for a very short time we want to make sure we have the time set aside to capture those details!
When can I view my images? We at MGP pride ourselves in being the most professional and expedient studio in our area. Our gallery reviews are scheduled 4-7 days after your session date. During your gallery review we will walk you through the whole process and help you narrow down your favorite images. Every family is different so we make sure your order contains only the products you love! Do you charge more over a selected amount of people? No! Whether your family is just a family of 2 or a family of 6 we do not make our clients choose who to leave off the family photos! Your session is YOUR session. We include grandparents for generation photos at no extra charge. If other family sections are added on we do require you to book a Large family session instead. That is our only requirement!
