Frequently Asked Questions:
How do I book a session?
Easy! You must first reach out to me via email, messenger or phone and we can go from there. Once we’ve agreed on a date, I’ll email you a contract and an invoice for a non-refundable retainer fee. The retainer fee is $75 and that ensures that the date and time you prefer is yours! The remainder of your session fee is due the day of your photo shoot.
What is the standard turn around time?
I typically post a sneak peek within 1-3 days of our session (unless you request that I keep your images off social media), although in rare cases it may take a few days longer! After that, it takes 2-4 weeks for me to finish up the rest of your images and create your final gallery! Once the gallery is delivered, it’s up to you to make your selection and place an order (if you want prints and/or more digital images). Galleries will be archived after 6 weeks and there may be a $25 reactivation fee if you fail to download your images in a timely manner.
How do i RECEIVE my photos?
I upload all of the professional quality, high resolution files into an online gallery from which you can select your favorite images, download them onto your phones/computer, and even easily place a print order. One of my favorite aspects of the online gallery system is that it makes it so convenient to share your photos with family (they can even place their own print orders)!
What should we wear?
I’m a huge fan of coordinating, NOT matching. To me, this means choosing 2-3 colors and creating a wardrobe around those. I love to see fun textures and you can never go wrong with neutrals ;) Most importantly, I suggest you choose clothing items that are comfortable and flattering for the person wearing them! If you want more tips on coordinating or you’re looking for some inspiration, please let me know! I’m always happy to help!!
What’s in your bag?
Nikon D750 - I also have a Nikon D3200 as a backup camera that I don’t usually carry with me. Three memory cards, two batteries, Sigma 70-200mm f 2.8, Nikon 50mm f 1.4, and Nikon 35mm f 1.8. I also usually have some fun things to get creative with like CDs, extension tubes, copper pipe, etc.
How long have you been doing photography?
I bought my first DSLR in 2012 and ran with it. I’ve always had a love for this type of art. I remember running around with my mom’s point and shoot, taking pictures of my sister and going for nature walks as early as 2007. I became a legal business in the spring of 2017.
