Frequently Asked Questions

How do I book a portrait session?

  • Contact me via my Contact page or email to let me know what you’re interested in! We'll decide on date, time, location and details from there!

How much does a session cost?

  • Sessions start at $150. Check out my Investment page or contact me for more information. Be sure to look out for discounts and promotions on my Facebook page.

I'm super awkward in photographs. How are you going to make me look good?

  • The secret to looking good in your photographs is to be comfortable. I promise to make you feel confident! I always take the time to get you to a place where you know you're rocking your session. 

How many images will I receive?

  • Digital images are included with your session fee. The number of images you will receive varies by session type. You'll be able to download all the images from a private album in my Client Portal.

Can my friends and family view the images online?

  • Yes, they can! I will upload your images to an online gallery that allows you to share your photos. 

Do I get the copyright to my photos?

  • You'll be able to print your images and post them online (i.e. Facebook, Instagram, etc.)  All images are the property of Erin Maturo Photography, and thus I may use your images for marketing materials, portfolio entries, etc. But don't worry, I'll make sure you look good :)

What forms of payment do you accept?

  • Venmo, Chase Quickpay, PayPal, cash, or check

What is your turnaround time for my images?

  • I promise to edit your photos as quickly as possible with the utmost quality. You should have your digital photos 1-2 weeks after your session takes place.

What should I wear to my session?

  • Wear something comfortable that reflects your personality! Couples sometimes like to match during their engagement sessions, but this isn't required. Solid, neutral colored clothing and simple accessories generally look cleaner in photos than bright bold patterns, but if that's not the look you're going for, you do you. Just remember, your shoes will show!

Can I bring props?

  • Absolutely! Bring sunglasses, a school flag, your dog, or anything that helps you showcase your personality! 

Do you charge travel fees?

  • I charge 50 cents per mile for any location that is more than 30 miles outside of the 60657 zip code.
