Frequently Asked Questions
Welcome to the Kossina Creative FAQ page. Find the answers to your questions about pricing, the process, sessions, and more.
How does pricing work?
What’s the best way to contact you?
How and when do I get my photos?
We’ll have a photo reveal session 1–2 weeks after your shoot. During this time, you’ll see all the images from your session and select the ones you want. It’s a lot of fun! You’ll receive the finished, polished digital photos a week later. Printed products like wall art and albums will be delivered 3–5 weeks after the photo reveal session.
Photos can be delivered sooner with a rush fee. So if you are on a tight timeline, please let me know!
Can my pet be included in the photos?
Yes! Pets are welcome to join outdoor sessions as long as the location permits it. For sessions inside the studio, only hypoallergenic animals are allowed.
Do I need to pay a retainer?
Yes, 50% of the balance is required to reserve your session.
What types of shoots do you do?
I do a wide variety of shoots! Some of our most popular sessions are maternity, newborn, cake smash (AKA, a child’s first birthday), and family. You can check out all the sessions I offer here. I also love exploring new creative ideas. So if you have something in mind that isn’t listed, please let me know. I’d love to chat about it!
The only type of shoots I do not do are weddings and other event-based occasions.
When do photo sessions take place?
Most sessions take place on weekdays, but weekends are also available for an additional fee.
What areas of town do you photograph?
Our studio is located in Avalon Park in East Orlando. For outdoor sessions, I can travel to any location within 50 minutes of Orlando. This includes Winter Park, Oviedo, Lake Mary, Windermere, Lake Nona, Clermont, Winter Garden and other surrounding cities.
What type of payments do you accept?
We accepts all major credit cards as well as checks, cash, Zelle, and Cash App.
Do you provide all the digital images from the shoot?
Each of our session packages comes with a set number of digital photos and matching 8x10 prints. You can purchase additional digital images and prints for $129 each.
For more information on session package options, please contact me. We'll schedule a free consultation and chat!
Do you provide the raw digital images?
We take pride in creating finished products and only deliver polished images.
Do you provide hair and makeup?
Although not included, hair and makeup is available to be added to your session. We are partnered with some outstanding local hair and makeup artists!
Do you provide clothing?
My studio has a full wardrobe of over 200 high-end maternity gowns and accessories. They are free to use on the day of your shoot! I love helping moms pick out the perfect dress for their maternity or motherhood session. In addition, we have gowns and accessories available for boudoir sessions.
We also have a variety of cute outfits for babies and girls!
Dad will need to dress himself, but we think he’s up for the challenge. 😉
What skin tones do you photograph?
All of them!
I believe in showcasing the beauty of all types of skin tones. The photos displayed on this website are all part of my diverse portfolio. I take great care in both the shooting and editing stages to accentuate each person’s natural beauty.
This is a cornerstone of my work because at the end of the day, you want beautiful photos that look like… you!
Do you edit your photos?
Yes! I am well-versed in Photoshop and love the editing process.
The editing stage is where I work to create photos that look natural and polished… but not over-polished. Smoothing skin, whitening teeth, and brightening eyes are just a few things I do to produce vibrant photos you’ll love!
Do you have experience photographing children with special needs?
Yes! I work hard to create a fun photo experience where all children feel loved and valued. My priority is making kids feel comfortable and safe at every stage of the session. If there is anything specific I can do to make my studio more accommodating to the needs of your child, please let me know!
Are you LGBTQ+ friendly?
Yes, of course! All are welcome here. I have done same-sex photo sessions and my studio is a Transgender Safe Space.
