What type of sessions do you shoot?
I specialize in newborns, but also photograph maternity sessions, children and families.

Do you use natural or studio lighting?
I strictly use natural lighting. Because of this, timing of your session is important and the weather does become a factor. Even if you have an inside newborn session scheduled, the weather can affect your session.

How do I book a session?
You can send an email directly to meganlanephotography {at} gmail (dot) com. We will communicate about what type of session you’re interested in, go over pricing, and answer any other questions you might have. Once you have submitted your session agreement that is completed online, a Paypal invoice will be sent to you to pay your non-refundable retainer to secure your spot on the calendar.

Where are you located?
I split my time between Columbia, NC and Zebulon, NC. I have an in-home studio in Zebulon, NC and a studio in downtown Columbia, NC. Majority of the time I am in Columbia (eastern North Carolina) Friday afternoons-Mondays and in Zebulon (30 minutes east of Raleigh) Tuesdays-Friday mornings, but it does change depending on the week.

How much do you charge?
Session fees vary depending on the type of session. Sessions start at $125. Please note that a 6.75% NC State Tax is in addition to any pricing information provided on my website

Do you require a non-refundable retainer fee?
Yes. A $50 non-refundable retainer is required to reserve your session date on the calendar.

How does your pricing work?
Your balance (less your $50 non-refundable retainer fee) is due at the time of your session.

How do I order my images?
At least 2 weeks after your session you will be emailed a link to your online gallery. Your online gallery stays online for 30 days. All ordering can be done through this website.

Need help with what to order?
If you prefer a in-person proofing appointment we can certainly set that up. I will be glad to sit down with you and review ways to display your images. I also have a program that allows you to see just what your images will look like when displayed in lots of different arrangements on your walls. I can also take a photo of your wall in your home that you’d like to display your photos on and I can show you various combinations of images in your actual space.

Have a question that you don’t see above? Feel free to email me at the email address stated above and I’d be happy to help you!
