FAQ's

When is the session fee due?

The session fee is paid at the time of scheduling / booking of your session. We accept cash, checks and credit cards.

What should we expect?

We take a comfortable, easy, and fun approach to our photo sessions. Our goal is to capture carefully crafted images of you as we move through your shoot. You'll find it a relaxing, enjoyable, low-stress experience.

What is expected from you.

Be a Junior or Senior.

Be energetic, motivated, positive, and have fun! You must sign a model release if over 18, and it's always a good idea to consult with your parents. If under 18, a release must be signed by a parent or legal guardian. In either case, it's our studio policy to always meet the parents during our initial consultation. A signed release gives permission to Sweethaven Seniors and Greg Nikas to use your images for marketing and promotion of Sweethaven Seniors, Sweethaven Studio and Greg Nikas Photography. This is a legal issue. We can not photograph you without a signed release.

HAIR AND MAKEUP

We HIGHLY recommend you get your hair and makeup done by a professional stylist before your session so you can look your very best. Makeup is an important component on how your finished photos will look. If you don’t know a stylist, we can recommend one from Newburyport who will come to the shoot and give you their undivided attention for your session. This is a big plus for you as your hiar and makeup will remain fresh for your entire session. The cost for this optional service will vary depending on who is available for your shoot, and is paid directly to the stylist. If you want to do your own makeup, here is a link to a step-by-step makeup guide from foundation to lipgloss, www.applymakeup.com. We also suggest that you not try anything new with your hair before your session. Stay with the color and style you are comfortable with to insure you will be happy with your photos.

Where will our photo shoot take place?

Photo shoots can take place in and around your home, or at a location of your choice in and around the Newburyport area.

How should I dress?

It's a good idea to have more than one change of clothes. Solid colors & earth tones always work best, along with that favorite piece of clothing you just love to be seen in. Include some fun accessories such as scarves, hats and jewlery.

Who should attend the shoot?

Your parents, your best friend, your second best friend, your third best friend! You get the idea.

PLEASE NOTE: A parent is mandatory.

How long will the session take?

HOME & LOCATION SESSIONS take 2 to 3 hours. In either case, it's a matter of capturing that special moment.
