Sick Policy: If you are sick, or your child has a fever or has been sick in the last 24 hours, please reschedule. Some of our clients are the tiniest of clients and do not yet have an immune system that can support getting sick. Unfortunately, if you come in and someone is under the weather, I will have to reschedule your session.
Raw Images: Digital Portraits are color corrected and hand edited. We do not offer RAW images as part of any package or service. You would not go out to eat with your family and ask to cook your own food. Who has time for that? That is part of my job and one of my favorite parts.
Emails: If you do not receive your email within the promised time period please contact us. Emails have been rejected as spam or returned as nondeliverable. Despite our best efforts we have no ability to see this through our current gallery site.
Shared Sessions: Sessions may always be split unless stated. However, the individual whom is signing the agreement will be the recipient of the gallery. We will not share any gallery unless we have written permission and have received the email address from the agreement holder.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long are your sessions?
Newborn sessions can take anywhere from 2-3 hours. We make as much time as your baby needs with stops for cuddles, feeding, and diaper changes. Our Portrait sessions and smash cake sessions can take up to one hour. We do our best to make each session as smooth and relaxed as possible. Engagement sessions can take from 1-2 hours.
Do I get the digitals with my session?
Every session comes with both digital images in an online gallery with personal print release as well as printed images. The digital gallery images are print ready and you may choose who to print with. I cannot guarantee color and quality at every location you choose however if you do not choose to print with me I do suggest Mpix.com.
How long until I get my pictures?
All galleries are delivered as of July1, 2018 through an online gallery that is available only to you. In 2020 we are expecting to go through a small change where we share some time looking through your images together and you choose your product design. Currently the average turnaround time is 1-2 weeks. You will need to make sure the email address is saved into your address book to avoid email delays.
How do I get my pictures?
We currently provide an online gallery with access to download, additional prints and products to complete your session.
What do I wear?
We have a great guide designed based on the season and this crazy New England weather we love so much. Feel free to message me with any questions and I am happy to share my pinterest boards based on your session.
Do you travel?
I love to travel. So absolutely yes! All travel within 40 miles of 03848 is included in the session fee. Any travel over 40 miles does have a small travel fee. Weddings, elopements, and travel engagement sessions do include travel costs.
Do you have props?
I provide clothing, props, set designs, all of the fun stuff. You bring the most important part. I have years of accumulated props and clothing. We provide Maternity gowns (as well as commission new gowns based on your design) newborn clothing, and we go up to one year clothing. We do have some clothing for children up to 7/8. All of our clothing, blankets, and wraps are professionally cleaned.
What kind of equipment do you use?
We love Canon and have nothing against Nikon. Canon in our family has been tradition. We also use a Paul Buff lighting set up.
How does your referral plan work?
The Referral Plan is a fun way to earn credit towards future products and free sessions. For every friend or family member you refer to Lace and Twigs Photography you and your friend will earn $25 when they book and complete their session. Gift Cards are emailed at the end of November each year. Referrals are a huge part of our business and we do not advertise because our clients are happy to share Lace and Twigs! For prints, products, and donations you can earn even more credit.
Your referrals mean so much to us!

What is your favorite time for sessions?
I love overcast days. I obsess over the sunset glow. Just about an hour before the sun goes down. These are my favorite times to photograph people. The black and whites are my favorites in that bluish light and with a bit of overcast sun. During the summer and late summer we only photograph sessions about 1-2 hours prior to sunset.
