WHAT KIND OF PHOTOGRAPHER ARE YOU? 

I combine lifestyle and documentary family photography to capture photographs that preserve your current life and adventures for you and your family to enjoy for a lifetime. Some have called my work fine art.  Images can be framed as your personalized pieces of art or designed into a one of a kind custom album that will last and be enjoyed by your family for years to come.  The Unscripted Life Sessions is an investment in preserving your memories.  Your images will tell the story of you and the bonds within your family. My sessions are not about perfection, but YOUR natural beauty.  Clients can expect me to provide them with images that are organic and real to your life currently, but that capture the best of you.  

WHAT CAN I EXPECTED WHEN I BOOK AN UNSCRIPTED LIFE SESSION? 

When booking your session, you will complete a fun and insightful questionnaire about your family.  The questionnaire is not only entertaining for you to fill out (hey, you may learn a thing or two about one another), but it is incredibly beneficial to me in planning out your Unscripted Life Session.  I also require a pre-session FaceTime/Skype.  Let's break the ice so on the day of your session we are starting off as friends!

HOW CAN I FIND TIME TO FIT THIS INTO MY ALREADY PACKED SCHEDULE?

Is the regret worth it?  Before you say no, read this

WHERE WILL MY SESSION BE HELD? 

We will work together to choose the best location and time.  The Unscripted Life Sessions are typically held in clients homes or at a place that has meaning attached to it for them.  

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR? 

I provide clients with a preparation guide once their session is booked that includes tips on dressing.  You can also find more ideas on my Pinterest page. I always stress that clients should dress like they normally do.

WILL I BE REQUIRED TO SCHEDULE A SALES SESSION?

Your a busy parent!  So am I.  With this in mind, I made sure to create all my workflows around ease and convenience.  Sometimes it is nice to have another set of eyes and a professional opinion when choosing heirloom prints and products. 

But if this is not possible, all items are available for purchase directly through your gallery.  Additionally, we can collaborate on designing the most beautiful, unique albums for your family through your portal.  Easy as pie!  

WHEN, HOW, AND WHERE CAN I PURCHASE ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AND PRODUCTS? 

Within three to four weeks past your session, you will receive a link to a private, protected online gallery within your portal.  You can download all of your images immediately.  Within your portal, you will have the ability to order additional prints, heirloom albums, or products not included in your package.  Your gallery will be activated for three months.  Purchases will be delivered to your doorstep.

HOW DO YOU CHOOSE THE FINAL IMAGES FROM MY SESSION? 

I look at every image I capture at during your Unscripted Life Session and hand select the best images. I am looking for images that portray me as an artist and additionally stay true to your family's story.  Essentially, my goal is to get to know your family well enough before your session that the images visual tell the story of the bonds, love, and relationships that are your here and now.

HOW FAR OUT ARE YOU BOOKED?  

For The Unscripted Life Sessions, I am typically booked out one to four months in advance.   For newborn sessions, it is necessary to inquire while you are pregnant - around six to seven months is the norm.  

DO YOU OFFER MINI-SESSIONS?  

Not normally as they are not as personalized and intimate as my regular sessions.  However, there are occasions that I will schedule mini session days for clients.  Please sign up to receive email notifications for such occurrences.

HOW DO I BOOK A SESSION?  

That question ALWAYS makes me so happy!  You can e-mail me directly at jessica@jessicaleighphotos.com or on the CONNECT tab.  I am also available by phone at 1.917.565.8780.

HOW MUCH DOES ALL OF THIS COST? 

I customize every session around each client.  We will discuss pricing during our first chat to see what session package is the best fit for you and your family.
