FAQs

Where will my session take place?
The location of your session is up to you.  For portrait sessions, I shoot almost entirely on-location, favoring the use of natural, available light.  Because of this, I prefer to book sessions either just after sunrise or before sunset when lighting conditions are optimal and most dramatic.  Newborn sessions will take place in the comfort and convenience of your own home, where is is cozy and warm.  Once your session is booked, we’ll schedule a consultation to discuss a location that suits your style and personality.

 

What should I wear?

Once you’ve booked your session, we’ll schedule a consultation to discuss all of the details of your session.  During the consultation, we’ll go over ideas for the session and the best wardrobe selection to compliment your vision.

 

When will I get to see my photos?
Within 48 hours of your session I will post a sneak peek on my Facebook page.  The turnaround time for your photos will be within 3 weeks of your session.  At that time, I will schedule a reveal session to view your gallery and discuss print and product options.

 

Are prints or digital files included in the session fee?
The session fee includes my time, talent, and editing of the photos taken during your session.  After your session has ended, I take the utmost care in selecting the best images, post-session editing, and creating your online viewing gallery.  Unless otherwise specified, prints and digital files are not included in the session fee.

 

I need to reschedule, what’s your policy?
I understand that things come up, people get sick, or bad weather develops on the day of your session.  Please notify me as soon as possible and I will be happy to reschedule your session on the earliest convenient date for both parties.  Without exceptions, “no shows” will forfeit their deposit.

 

What forms of payment do you accept?
Cash, checks, and all major credit cards are accepted.

 

Do you shoot weddings?
I love weddings!  I do shoot a select number of weddings each year and I love to shoot engagement sessions.  Contact me for more information about my wedding packages and current availability.  Click here to view my wedding and engagement portfolio.

 

What’s the difference between prints purchased from you and prints purchased from a drugstore?
If you have or are considering making an investment in a professional custom photography session, understand that it is my goal to present you with amazing heirloom memories to be displayed in your home or shared with family and friends.  Because of that, I’ve taken great care in finding and working with professional processing labs that faithfully reproduce the images from your session on the highest quality materials not typically found in drugstore photo labs.  Before you invest even the smallest amount of money, you should be able to recognize the difference (need help?
