FAQ:

What will our photos look like?

Steven Serge Limited Holiday sessions are the only sessions of it's kind in our area that where we will take year round style portraits and christmas/holiday themed photos. We will have a vintage vehicle, a live tree decorating scene and 1-2 other areas for portraiture. The sessions are highly interactive for children and it shows in our work. Commonly parents remark that their children asked if they could come back for more photos the following day because of the wonderful experience they had. Break away from the single scene studios and enjoy some real moments with your children and families. All sessions are scheduled in the later afternoon when outdoor lighting and temperatures will provide us with the best images and experience possible. We are also the only live Christmas Tree farm sessions offered within a convenient drive just outside the Clarks Summit areas. Steven Serge Photography is also one of the only IN-HOME Portrait Design Studios that offers our Artwork follow up appointments where will we meet together and assist with selection and placement of artwork for your home. You know, the kind of artwork you always said you would make yourself but never did.....If the photo CD or dowloand your last photographer provided is still collecting dust in the desk drawer or barely produced a 5x7 print, you will love our Artwork and Services that we provide. Come to a session & let Steve handle all of your timeless portrait gifts and needs this year. 

 

Who are the sessions geared toward?

Steven Serge outdoor Holiday Sessions are geared toward families with children who are capable of confidently standing, walking and maybe even running on their own. Babies and toddlers 12-18 months not that confident in the walking stages are welcome to these sessions but may be limited to photos being held by family members as this is an outdoor lifestyle photo session and not a traditional indoor studio. Big kids are welcome as well. Teenagers and college aged children are encouraged as this is an excellent opportunity to take some traditional family or sibling photos before they officially move out of your home. Special needs children & families are always welcome at any of my sessions. If you have a child or family member with special needs and would like to talk about a session, please call me at your convenience -Steve (570) 815-6880

What does the session fee cover?

The $150 session fee covers the creative time, talent, equipment, location/prop/vehicle usage of the photographer along with post production editing and your follow up ordering consultation. The session fee does not include products or digital files.

Products and digital files are an additional purchase per the packages listed on this page.

Why are sessions just before sunset?

Quality. I want each and every client to have the best images possible and that happens in the 1-2 hours leading up to sunset.  

How many families can come to one of these sessions?

These sessions are designed for immediate family only. One family per session. 

Can we bring Fido?

Very, very, very, very well-behaved pets that are good around strangers are welcome. If your pet will consistently sit & stay on command, he/she is welcome. Otherwise let's just focus on getting great portraits of your humans without the distraction of trying to train your pet in the middle of a photography session.  

What should we wear?

Layered "Polo" casual is your best bet for these sessions. Flannels, sweaters, vests, scarves, knit caps, suspenders, jeans, stylish hats etc etc..This is an outdoor lifestyle session and dressed down looks better than over-dressed. We are outdoors on a tree farm and this style seems to fit best. Please think about your outfits regarding predicted weather at that time much like you are taking your kids to an outdoor sporting event. We want them to look great but they need to be comfortable in the elements to not compromise your artwork. 

What if my son/daughter can be camera shy at times?

Feel free to tell your children you are going to shop for Christmas trees. Upon arrival you are welcome to have them walk around the tree farm and "warm up" to the surroundings before interacting with myself. We will have a staged live tree to decorate with ornaments and this typically gets the kiddos excited to perform well in front of the camera. If all else fails, I'll break out the M&M's for incentive & bribery to follow directions - with parents permission of course.

What happens after our session is over?

Steve will hand select and professionally edit the best photos from your session. Once Steve is done with selecting and editing your best photos, we will schedule a follow up appointment to proof and place your order for the product package you have chosen. Selection appointments are quick, easy and quite fun. Package upgrades and add-ons are welcome at time of ordering. We can schedule this at your home or meet at one of Steve's local client meeting places that is convenient for you. Proofing appointments are available both days and evenings to accommodate your schedule.  Products will be delivered to you within 2-3 weeks after your selection appointment.  

All proofing selections are done in person to better assist you in Artwork selection.

We no longer offer online galleries. All selections will be made during your scheduled in-person selection appointment.
