Sarah Musumeci StudioPolicies

Our fine art portraits glorify the homes of many New England families! We DESIGN, CREATE, CAPTURE, and PERFECT your priceless FAMILY HEIRLOOMS. These elegant portraits will be admired and handed down for future generations to enjoy. But we need to PLAN, and this is our specialty!! Before we even begin to think ‘cameras and action', we talk everything through, so there are no surprises during the entire process. Set up a meeting with me, “a consultation”, to talk it all through and we will create a powerful strategy to create some stunning photos of your family!

At the studio session we will direct you at EVERY step, all while having some fun along the way. We help you with EVERYTHING!  The session will usually take about one - to one- and one‑half hours.

Our Policies

Before we capture our portraits, it is important for us to have our ‘consultation session’. One or both parents (or grandparents?) should be present. The meeting is low key and quite simple. But this is our day to plan for the big day in a few weeks. Sometime during the session, we try to decide on a Studio Session date.

A RESERVATION for the Studio Session IS NECESSARY - Studio ‘sessions” are only honored by a confirmed appointment. Call the studio to make a reservation, or we can decide at the consultation.

  • Reservations require a credit card on hand to complete the scheduling process. We choose a date, and once your reservation has been made, you will receive an EMAIL and/or a TEXT, confirming all the details, such as the date, time, place, etc.
  • We take our reservations seriously and we require a 24-hour notice to cancel or reschedule the session, with a $100 fee for noncompliance.
  • There will be NO charge to the card, what-so-ever, unless the appointment is not cancelled or rescheduled within 24 hours of the appointment, if you plan not to be there.
  • Reservations, reschedules, and cancellations, are accommodated by the phone or in-person only. Please try to call only between the hours of 9:00 AM and 7:00 PM, Monday through Saturday. If you have a ‘quick question’ about anything else, feel free to email or call me at most anytime, and I will contact you as soon as I am able. As of this time, there are no Monday studio session appointments.
  • We do not charge for studio consultation, studio photography session, or the ‘viewing session’. ALL is complimentary.

The Viewing - Selection Meeting

Within a week or ten days after the studio session, we have a shorter meeting where you get to view, discuss, choose, and commission any portraits or artwork (paintings). It is an exciting day because you finally get to see the portraits! And yes ladies, (and gentlemen) we can help you with the excess Covid 10-15 pounds - if you request. It is part of our complimentary but sophisticated editing process. No one will know but us. Promise.

We want all who will be part of the selection process, to attend the selection meeting. We can not  hold the session unless the responsible members are both (or ALL) present. Our staff cannot make any exceptions to this policy. Please refrain from bringing young children to this session as they may well distract you.

Our fine art printed portraits are one of a kind and of the highest quality and archival masterpieces you will find. We specialize in this! All work from our studio is protected under copyright.

And last of all,  please refrain from taking your own pictures or videos at the studio, including cell phone photographs or videos.

Thank you!
