These faq's will give you an idea of what to expect on a session with me.
Are the sessions outdoors or indoors?
Sessions generally take place outdoors at a specific location that we have decided on prior to the session. There is also an option of shooting in the privacy of your own home, but that requires a good amount of natural light entering your home. As a natural light photographer, natural light is the softest and most beautiful, so it is essential to the amazing outcome of each image.
How far in advance should I book?
I suggest booking one month in advance to secure the date that works best for you.
What if it rains or is freezing outside?
If it rains or if we know it is going to be way to cold we will just reschedule for the next available day. I am always checking the weather and will be in constant contact with you if the weather is not cooperating for our session.
What if I’d like more time, want to use multiple locations or have a crazy idea I’d like to try?
Let’s do it! I’m game for anything. Additional time can be purchased for $150 per hour.
What are your rescheduling policies?
If you need to reschedule our session I require 24 hour notice.
Do you take deposits?
I take a retainer fee and it is due upon the signing of your contract. The retainer fee is 50% of your session fee and is non-refundable. The retainer fee is due within 5 days of booking to hold your date. I will send you an invoice when ready to book the date.
How many people can be included in a session?
I base my pricing on the specific needs of the person or family so please call me for a quote.
How soon can I see the photos?
Images will be uploaded to your private online gallery within 30 days of the session. Print and album delivery will vary depending on items purchased.
Will the images be in color or black & white?
Every edited image is provided in color and black and white.
Do I receive all of the images from the session?
You do not receive all the photos from the session. I have high standards and some images don't make the cut. I assure you that you will see all of the best images from your session. However, if you want every image minimally edited I can provide that to you for an additional $500 on top of your session fee.
Do I get to choose the photos that I want retouched from my session?
Typically, you do not choose which photos are edited from the session. As a photographer I take great pride in every image that I release from my studio. When the session is complete I go through each and every photo and carefully select the best of the best. The best images are edited and provided to you in your private gallery for your selection. If you want to set up an appointment to view your RAW images in my home and select your edits, I can arrange that for an additional $100 charge on top of your session fee. Please be advised that the 30 day delivery time frame begins after you select your images if you choose to set a home appointment.
How do you provide the digital files?
Digital files are provided through a high-resolution digital download.
Do you suggest that I use a local printing company?
Local printers or big chains are fine for personal photos, but I highly recommend using my professional lab for your prints. This ensures the best quality and color of your images. Print and canvas pricing is provided when you receive your digital files. If you wish to have the pricing in advance, please let me know.
