Fine Print

Initial Investment
Your initial investment starts with your session fee.  This fee is required to reserve your appointment.  It is non-refundable but can be transferred to another date/time.  The fee covers the phone pre-consultation, your portrait session, post-session processing and preparation and a private viewing/ordering appointment.  You can pay when booking your appointment online or over the phone.


We offer full sessions as well as mini-sessions. On-Location sessions are within 20 miles of 15137.  You can choose to pay a travel fee for locations over 20 miles.  Sessions last between 30 minutes to 1.5 hours depending on the number of people and the ages. Newborn sessions usually last longer to ensure the comfort of the baby and parents.  Mini-Sessions are held in my home studio space – either outside or inside.  Sessions last 15 minutes.


Reveal and Ordering Appointment
The reveal and ordering appointment will take place about a week after your session.  We will do them either in your home, or at a neutral location, like a Starbucks or Panera.  Your appointment will begin with a slideshow of all of your images from your photo session, and then you will have the opportunity to select the package that is best for you.  I promise you there is never pressure to purchase anything, and there will never be hidden or surprise fees.  


A-La-Carte Collection
The A-La-Carte collection allows you to just purchase individual items.  There is no minimum required to purchase.  All Digital Files come with a limited print release.  You may make unlimited copies or prints as long as they are not for profit or altered in any way.  Not all products from the Create-A-Collection are available in the A-La-Carte collection.


Our Create-A-Collection allows you to customize a portrait package according to your own needs with pricing that is a better value than the A-La-Carte collection.  Your collection will contain digital files as well as whatever keepsakes, wall art and gift prints you choose.  Additional products, prints and keepsakes are available when purchasing this collection.

I have a small space in my living room that I use for indoor sessions. It works great with babies, children, individual portraits and small groups of 2-3 people.  My home sessions offer more backdrops and other props that I generally can’t bring with me to on-location sessions.  I’m located in North Versailles, which is near Monroeville PA.  I also use several areas around my home for outdoor sessions.  These areas work well with larger groups of people.


I cannot guarantee quality, proper contrast, and correct color on reprints if you choose not to print your digital purchases through Photographs By Mish.  My screen is calibrated to my lab, and I can guarantee that prints that I deliver to you will look exactly as I intended.  If you would still like to make your own prints, I can recommend several online labs that provide beautiful prints. Please avoid the kiosks setup at local chain stores. Below you will find a link to consumer labs that I recommend for best color accuracy.
