The Pizzuti Experience
Pizzuti Cuties provides a hand-on, full-service, creative photography experience. We work closely with you from the moment you inquire until the perfect photos are being hung on your wall.
Our focus is always creating a fun, relaxed, and personalized photography experience that captures the true personality of everyone in your family and provides timeless memories to showcase in your home.
Our studio is located in an amazing boho marketplace called Mill No. 5 and full of simple sets and mid-century furniture in an up-and-coming urban neighborhood with tons of industrial architecture. Our studio sessions tend to be very portrait focused, where our location sessions are a mix of portraits and candid/lifestyle moments.
Your family’s health is important to us. We take every precaution to make sure our studio is clean and sanitized between each client visti. Our COVID-19 protocols are based on official guidance by federal, state and local authorities.
- Zero- sick policy with easy rescheduling
- PPE worn & social distancing protocol plan
- Full between every session
- Backup plans are discussed during planning.
Planning & Proofing
From wardrobe to image selection, we’re with you every step of the way.
Dressing your family for professional photos can be overwhelming. We’ll guide you through the process as well as give you access to our style guides. We want you to be comfortable while looking your best.
After the session, we set up your web based gallery and plan for phone or video call to go over your carefully curated session together to choose your favorites and discuss retouching.
We provide purchasing options for both digital and high-quality photography products. Each image is carefully edited with our signature retouching.

We were going to be outside for our extended family shoot but because of the child and wind decided to find a new place. Ashley was very professional and made the best of the inside area we had. It might not have been what we had first envisioned but it turned out beautiful just the same. She took time to Photoshop to make the area work for our large family! I’d recommend and have Pizzuti for family shots!!
Ashley has photographed my daughters on several occasions and they have blown us away with the results every single time. My kids can be a handful. She was incredibly patient. I walked out thinking the session was a disaster but was completely blown away at what she created. The prints from her lab are top quality. Highly recommend.
The thing we love about the Pizzuti’s is their hands on approached. I was a little hesitant to spend so much on photos. The kids are getting older so we really wanted something nice. She helped us with outfits and really held my hand through the process. She made us super comfortable during the session. She presented us with artwork rather than just sending us files I’m too busy to do anything with.
How do we book you?
After you have reviewed our full pricing and we have chatted about a date we will send you our studio contract to sign and pay for your session. Once we receive both the contract and session fee you are locked in for that date/time/location.
Are Digital Files Included?
As technology advances so do clients' needs. We offer a product credit that can be used to purchase the fully retouched digital files.
Can you hold the date while I check....?
Short answer is no, not because we don’t want to but really to be fair we have to work off a first come first serve basis. Certain times of the year like fall we receive multiple inquiries a day and some are more motivated than others or are just looking for information. If life gets in the way, as it does sometimes, just contact us to make sure your desired date is still available if not, we will find something else that will work.
How long will my session be?
Pet and Mini Sessions are 30 minutes while full and generation sessions are 60-90 minutes. Newborn sessions can sometimes run 2 hours due to feeding and breaks.
This, of course, depends on the cooperation of our subjects, available light, how many people in the session, etc.
Location sessions tend to be longer than studio sessions due to traveling from one spot to another and varied lighting situations.
How many photos will I receive?
All our sessions come with a product credit that can be used towards the images they love in a format that works best for them. The number of images is up to each client.
After the session, we proof the images through a timed web gallery to make your select purchases.
Pet & Mini Sessions – Average 20 Proofed Images
Full Sessions – Average 45 Proofed Images
Generation Sessions – Average 60 Proofed Images
Special Events – Average 200 Proofed Images
Can I see or purchase "the rest" of the photos from the session?
Are you open to bartering or offer discounts?
We love bartering! We generally do an even exchange for the dollar amount. Make us an offer.
Past wedding clients, public school teachers, COVID19 health workers, and first responders. Please inquire about our discount.
Cancellations & Rescheduling
Session fees are non-refundable retainers to hold your date/time, however, we do give our clients up to one year to reschedule their session with 24-hour notice.
WHAT IF WE OR YOU ARE SICK???
We take health and safety very very seriously. Also, no one, especially kids looks good when they don’t feel good. Please let us know and we will work with you to reschedule. I will absolutely let you know if anyone in my family has been sick in the last 24 hours as to not infect your family. We expect the same courtesy as we do work with humans with compromised immune systems.
