Thank you very much for taking the time to check out my website.  I know that sessions are very different, no two are alike. With that being said.  I want this to be as personal and comfortable as can be for not only you, but everyone being photographed, including even the tiniest ones.   These are photos that I want you to hang on your walls, share with friends and family, and hold dear to your heart for a lifetime.  Your sessions are all about me being able to capture the milestones and the most important times of your life.  Not break your bank and only afford photos once every year or so.

I offer my photography services for newborns (usually within the first 10 days of being born), children, senior year, adult, engagement, maternity, family photos, modeling/fashion and boudoir photos.  I know that these are just several important days we like to remember, but in fact there are many many more.  Please contact me for any occasion.

Your time with me is very precious and I want to ensure you that I will make you feel relaxed and natural.   I am here to capture all the incredible moments.

1 hour of my time in your home or on location, outdoors within 20 miles of Lombard.  

Any props, hats, bows, tutus, etc. of mine that I may bring for use.

How sessions work: 

We will get together about 10 minutes prior to starting so that we can set up and discuss outfits and what we want to accomplish by the end of your session.  There is no limit on immediate family (parents/siblings).  For added family (Grandparents, cousins, etc.) it will be $15 extra per every 2 people.  

For younger children usually they can do about 2 outfit changes without being too bothered.  I am open to as many poses as you would like to fill in our time together.  

 


 

What to wear:

For newborn-usually I use blankets and just a diaper.  You may provide any blankets you would like to include in the photos.  As well as a small stuffed animal or any other small important item that you would like in the photographs.

For children-I normally suggest brighter colors.  Something comfortable and easy to run around in. 

For family sessions-I typically ask not to wear too many bold prints or patterns and that the color choices mesh together and/or are from the same color family. 

I am not picky with clothing, I just want everyone to be comfortable and feel great!

You can also find a few examples under my family section.

 


Cancellation: If you need to cancel your session, please do prior to 48 hours from the session date.  If you need to cancel within the 48 hours a fee of $50 will be owed immediately.  This $50 will be applied (one time only-other cancellations will not be included) to your rescheduled session as long as it is within 2 weeks of the cancelled date.  The only accepted reasons without a fee would be death of a family member or a proven illness.  

Payment: Celestina Marie accepts cash, personal/business check and all major credit cards.

My time I book with my clients if very important and your time slot is specifically made for your photos.  I understand there are instances that come up but I am hoping 48 hours is enough time for us to communicate another date.

I am always here to help you with any questions you may have and look forward to meeting you.

Thank you!!!
