You’ve come to the right place! We got you covered!
Where do you take your photos at?
I come to you or where you choose. I have a little mobile studio I can pack around or we can find an interesting place close to you. It’s really your choice.
Can we take the photos at more than one location?
Sure, that is fine. But travel time counts towards session time, I would say one to two location is best.
Do you travel?
Within 50 miles at my own expense and anywhere else if you are willing to cover the expenses ($0.50 per mile)
How do I schedule a session?
Will we own the copyrights to the images from our session?
No. I retain the copyright to the images I take, however, a personal print release is issued so that you can use the images for personal printing, social media, etc.
When is the best time to have a session photographed?
Outdoors, the best light for portraits is early morning or before sunset. Parks and urban locations are a great choice.
If children will be in the photos, pick a time when children are relaxed but energetic and won’t need to eat or nap.
Where will my session be?
Your choice. Pick somewhere that you find beautiful. Easy access is important when dealing with children or pregnant women, and also consider the time of year. But ultimately pick somewhere that reflects your personality and style.
What if the weather is horrible?
It’s true, sadly I can’t control the weather. But I can use it to create some fun and unique portraits. If you are feeling adventurous I am up for anything. If not, we can talk, and move indoors or find a location that will work.
How long will the session last?
A standard session is one-and-a-half hours, or a little longer or shorter depending on how everyone is feeling.
What do we wear?
Keep it simple. Small patterns photograph funny and should be avoided. I would suggest solid colors with great textures and layers! Also, pick a color theme and go with it. Accessories are great as well, bring several jackets, scarves, sunglasses, or whatever else you want to!
How long till we can see the images?
I ask for three weeks. However, after taking the images, I can’t wait to work on them. In general, depending on how many photos are taken I will have them done in about a week.
Do you retouch your images?
Yes! I offer two different options, basic and premium edits. I do not do major body sculpting or things that look unnatural. I believe we are all beautiful and will keep images as natural-looking as possible.
Do I need to sign a contract?
Yes, I request that all clients sign a contract and a model release form.
Do I need to pay a deposit or booking fee?
Yes, 50% of the original price for the session is required as a booking fee. A photo session is not considered booked until the booking fee is made. Booking fees are nonrefundable.
What types of payments do you accept?
I accept cash, credit card, or Paypal
What if I need to cancel my session?
If it is 48 hours or more prior to your session contact me and let’s see if we can work something out. The booking fee is non-refundable so I try and reschedule. If it is less than 48 hours until your session I will try to reschedule but there is no guarantee.
What happens if I miss my session?
You are free to book another session. The booking fee will not be refunded nor can it be used as the booking fee for another session.
What happens if I am late?
Showing up late means you forfeit the time. The session will still end at the scheduled time. I will wait for 30 minutes, if by then no one shows up I will leave and the session is considered missed.
