+ What should I do to prepare?
All sessions offered by us are laid back, worry-free experiences. The amount of preparation is completely up to you, but there are several suggestions. Outfit changes may be available depending on sessions, so bring a a variety of different options. Always dress appropriately for the weather, but you can wear anything from casual to dressy.
What makes the difference between a cute photo and a real, stunning piece of art? Proper hair and makeup! You want the best possible version of yourself to be displayed in these memories so go all out. Treat yourself and get it done professionally if you can, but ultimately I encourage you to prepare yourself in a way that makes you most comfortable. When styling your hair and makeup please keep environmental factors in mind. If you will be photographed outdoors you may want to think about the wind and heat as these elements can cause your hair to blow unflatteringly or shine to form on your face.
+ Can I reschedule my session?
Absolutely. Life happens sometimes. In the event that you need to reschedule your session, we ask you please give 48 hours notice. Also, your deposit for your session, while non-refundable, can be transferred to your rescheduled session date. So don’t stress when the unexpected strikes.
+ I'd like to have portraits taken at my own home; can you do this?
Yes, we do! Many of our clients like to have their portraits taken in the comfort of their own home and we are happy to accommodate you with this. Generally, you are welcome to have your session take place in a couple of different locations, so if you’d like to do some at home and then head out to your favorite beach, park, or other location as well, that’s fine. (If the location change is more than 15 miles, we may charge a small additional fee to cover for our transportation costs.
+ Can I bring someone to the shoot?
Yes! Feel free to bring a family member, friend, or significant other to your session. However be sure to warn them that they may not take any pictures during the shoot.
+ Okay I'm ready to book my session, what's next?
I can’t wait to work with you! After deciding which session is right for you, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or get right to it and access my calander and book your session here.
After that, you’ll be able to sign your contract and submit your session deposit online. 50% deposit is due upon booking to reserve your date, and the remainder is due on the day of your session. I also ask new clients to fill out a short questionnaire, which helps me get to know you and your hopes & goals for the session.
+ How will I get my images?
Digital images are included in every session package. You will receive your images, usually through email, with a link to a personalized online gallery from which you can download the files straight to your computer. Completion of images depends on the type of session, but feel free to inquire. Print options of all different types and sizes are also available.
+ When is the best time for a portrait session?
The best time for the most flattering lighting is usually first thing in the morning or a couple hours before sunset. However, any time of the day is fine.
+ Do you have a studio?
The majority of portrait sessions are on location. We have found that most clients are more comfortable in a natural environment instead of an artificial backdrop. However, if you are interested in studio portraiture for commercial or model portfolio building be sure to inquire on my contact page.
+ What if the weather is bad?
Both sunny, partly cloudy, and sometimes even light rainy weather conditions are great for photo shoots. If there is particularly bad weather in the forecast, we can re schedule. I leave time each week specifically for this.
+ I’VE SEEN SOME PHOTOS oN PINTEREST OR IN ADS – CAN WE TRY SOMETHING similar?
Absolutely! I love to see what my clients have in mind! If you have a few pictures you can toss together or maybe even an inspiration board, I'd love to see what photos you like!
+ Can I order Prints or a Canvas?
Of course! I work in tangent with a couple printing companies to offer you physical prints, canvases, as well as other goodies, in multiple sizes with various types. Purchases can be made directly in your personalized gallery you will receive with your images, where the entire store of all the products are available to browse. If there are other options that you want to explore, such as albums or wall art, feel free to inquire. I'm extremely flexible with any creative ideas you want to achieve.
