No, we don’t charge extra for twins. However, we do suggest you select a package that’s at least 25 minutes long. Imaging of twins is more difficult, so the additional time is helpful in providing the best images possible. It is recommended to have your session between 22 and 28 weeks for the best chance of capturing Picture Perfect images of both babies.
We cannot guarantee the Picture Perfect image but we will certainly do our best to provide the highest quality picture available. The positioning of the baby at the time of the scan may limit the images. Every baby scans differently depending on its gestational age, position, amount of amniotic fluids and mother’s body type.
Some families do see 100% of their baby’s face, while others see more of a profile. Your baby is the director of the show and will determine how much you get to see. Many of our families schedule multiple sessions so they can watch their baby grow throughout the pregnancy.
We recommend that you wear comfortable clothing. Remember, our sonographer will need to access to your abdomen during the 3D/4D ultrasound session.
To help you obtain the best pictures, be sure to drink plenty of water and other fluids 4 to 5 days before your appointment.
We accept cash, all major credit cards (Visa, Master Card, American Express, Discovery, etc.), and debit cards. We do not accept personal checks. Gift Certificates are available.
Insurance does not cover the costs of 3D/4D elective ultrasounds. Since this is an elective procedure for entertainment purposes only and is not intended to be a replacement for your doctor ordered ultrasound, you will need to pay the cost of this ultrasound as an out-of-pocket expense.
We encourage and welcome you to bring your friends and family to your Picture Perfect ultrasound session. Your 3D/4D ultrasound session is a special chance to share your baby with family before birth, so please bring guests! We pride ourselves on providing the most enjoyable experience for mom and her guests. For your friends and family who cannot attend the session, you can invite them to view your session through Skype. Please contact us for details.
Yes, all Picture Perfect ultrasounds are by appointment only. Feel free to call us to schedule your 3D/4D ultrasound session over the phone. We require a $50 deposit for all appointments to secure your time spot. Once the appointment is scheduled over the phone, you must confirm your appointment by paying the $50 deposit via our website within 24 hours of scheduling the appointment. Your appointment will not be confirmed if the deposit is not paid within the 24 hour period. This deposit is applied towards the purchase price of your session and is fully refundable if you cancel or reschedule your appointment with at least 24 hours’ notice. If the notice is less than 24 hours or in case of a no-show, you will forfeit your deposit. Please be sure to arrive on time for your appointment and do not hesitate to call if you are running late.
Although we cannot guarantee image quality, Picture Perfect recommends that you schedule your 3D/4D ultrasound between 28-34 weeks in order to ensure the best 3D/4D imaging quality. Click here to calculate the optimal time-frame to schedule your Picture Perfect ultrasound.
A Picture Perfect ultrasound is an elective ultrasound and is purely for the entertainment of the mother and family members. Women seeking an elective prenatal ultrasound must already be receiving active treatment from a physician for prenatal care and have undergone a medical, diagnostic ultrasound ordered by their physician. It should be made clear that a Picture Perfect ultrasound cannot be used as a substitute for a complete diagnostic ultrasound. Picture Perfect Images requires a written prescription from the attending physician authorizing the customer to undergo an elective prenatal ultrasound.

A 2D ultrasound transmits the traditional black & white ultrasound pictures. These pictures show two-dimensional outlines and profiles of the baby. This specific ultrasound is often used to listen to the heartbeat of the fetus and determine gender.
A 3D ultrasound captures three-dimensional images of your baby. The transducer (sound wave transmitter) sends out sound waves from numerous directions and as a result, transmits realistic three-dimensional still shot images.
A 4D ultrasound utilizes the same technology as 3D ultrasounds but introduces the element of motion. This technology allows you to take a look in the womb to see the movement of the fetus. If your baby is feeling like giving you a show, you may be able to see things like your baby yawning, smiling or sucking its thumb!
