Portrait FAQs


Questions? Ask away!

How do I book a session – and how far out do you book?

Use the contact form on this website, or email us directly at swp.portraits@gmail.com to check availability.  We typically book out about 1-2 months in advance (summer and fall sessions book 3-4 months out).

For newborn sessions, we recommend you contact us at the start of your 2nd trimester. Due to an extremely full calendar, we are usually unable to accept last minute newborns – and saying no to babies makes us sad, so plan ahead!

Follow us on Facebook – this is where we post last minute openings, mini-sessions and other deals!

A $100 retainer and signed portrait agreement are required to secure your session appointment.

How much time should I allow for my session?

A typical session lasts 1-2 hours. Newbie sessions can take anywhere from 2-4 hours.

What should I wear?!?

See the “Pinterest” button at the top of the screen there? Click that – it will take you to a magical land of wardrobe inspiration.

Do you travel outside Milwaukee?

You betcha! We are more than happy to travel for a session. A travel fee may apply to locations outside a 30 minute radius of downtown Milwaukee.

I don’t have a location – can you suggest a location?

Of course! Milwaukee is filled with great spots for shooting. During our correspondence, we’ll get a feel for whether you are more interested in nature or urban landscapes and from there can provide suggestions for our session.

How long after my session will I receive my images?

A few days post-session, a small preview from your session will be posted to our Shannon Wucherer Photography Facebook page. Once edited, images will be uploaded to an online gallery where you can view them, share with friends & family, and make your selections for print/product ordering. Once your order comes in, we will arrange pick up or delivery of your printed images.
