Information

Thank you for your interest in learning more about a photo session with Belle Idee Photography.
This page should cover most of the basic information but please let me know if you have any questions!

I am located approximately 30 minutes south of Buffalo and just 5 minutes from the 219 Rice Rd exit.
My home has 20+ acres of wildflower fields, forest, and amazing views of hills and sunset skies.
I will also travel to locations in the WNY area including public parks or even your own home.
Locations beyond 30 miles of zip code 14111 will have an additional travel fee.

My style is all about colorful, ethereal, whimsical, magical, and artistic imagery.
My work is different from others in the area because I take the time to expertly and artistically hand edit every image to create almost painting-like photos.
I also have a closet of dresses exclusively for my moms and mom-to-be’s to use at no additional cost - CLIENT CLOSET
I also have a growing collection of outfits for children as well.
And I have a personal stylist that will take your preferences and provide you with outfit options for each family member.

Because of the time and attention I give each family to help create an easy and fun process, I limit the number of sessions I schedule per month.
Therefore a $50 retainer fee (that will go towards the cost of the session) and a signed contract is required to reserve your spot on my calendar.

For optimal lighting conditions sessions are usually scheduled in the evening before sunset.
While sessions typically take a certain amount of time (e.g. one child will typically take less time than a family of 5) I do not run my sessions according to the clock.
I’ve had some mom & child sessions where amazing images have happened within just 10 minutes. I’ve had family sessions where we are having so much fun they end up being 90 minutes. I will give a general idea of how long a session typically lasts, but I will photograph until I feel have gotten everything I need to create an incredible gallery for you.

Some families will come to me knowing exactly the “look” they are going for and have a location and dress already picked out for the child’s session,
some will say they love my mom & child photos in my purple flowers but have no idea what to wear, and some people will say they have absolutely no idea where they want to go or what vibe they want but just know the need a session with me.
And that is all ok because I love to help you through every step of the process and help create a unique and stunning final product.
