Thank you for your interest in Lisa Yvette Photography. I'm so excited you are considering me to capture your lives and create timeless memories for your family. Every photography studio has a different business model and so I’d like to give a bit more insight into mine. After reading and experiencing the portrait process outlined below, I feel confident you’ll find your time and money have been well invested in quality service and products. If you have questions at any time, please contact me.




Your photography journey begins when you contact me. Once we connect, we’ll discuss your photographer needs. I’ll answer your questions and provide you with some details. If we agree to move forward, a non-refundable booking fee and signed service agreement are all that's required to book your session.


About 3 weeks prior to your session, we'll finalize planning details for your session. You’ll be given a questionnaire to help me get ready. We will have one or more discussions as needed about props, wardrobe, hair & makeup, and shooting location. You will also receive a preparation guide with helpful session tips in your own private client portal


You bring your smiles and personality. My goal is for you to relax and have fun while I do the rest. I'll interact with you and your family in a way that generates natural emotion and reaction. For newborns, I only ask for your patience as I gently and calmly handle your baby with the utmost safety and care. These sessions take time and I work on your baby's schedule allowing as many breaks as needed for feeding, changing, soothing, and posing.


Reviewing and Choosing your photos: Immediately following your session, we will review your proofs, choose your faves for me to edit and place your order for any additional digitals or print products you would like. Full payment is due at the time of order. Product orders will be placed (or digital orders will be released) only after final payment has cleared. It is important that all family members who make financial decisions attend this in person appointment.

Post Processing: After your print/digital packages are chosen and payments submitted, your photos will be professionally hand edited by me. Digitals will be delivered online via your private gallery usually within 1-2 weeks.

Product Delivery: Most print orders are back within 1 week after submitting to my lab. Canvas, Frames, Albums, etc. can take 3-4 weeks. Once your final products are returned, I will inspect, package, and deliver them to you for your convenience within 25 miles of our studio! If shipping is necessary, shipping and handling fees will be billed with your order.

There is a vast difference between taking a picture and making a photograph.
