FAQ

WHAT IF I NEED TO RESCHEDULE?

Life happens! If you need to reschedule, try to contact me 24 hours in advance and I will be happy to reschedule your session. Same goes for me. If you have chosen an outdoor session and there's bad weather, you can chose to have a studio shoot or reschedule.

WHAT ABOUT PAYMENTS AND CONTRACTS?

All clients are required to sign a model release & contract. All payments are due at the ordering session. If you are doing an Ala Carte Session then your payment is due at the time of the photoshoot. We accept cash, check, and all major credit cards. Payment plans are available. No portraits will be received until final payment is made.

DO YOU PHOTOSHOP?

All images have general retouches. If there is something specific that you want removed like, scars, tattoos, moles etc. we will discuss that at your consultation. I will show you a variety of edits on your images at your ordering session for your approval.

Once you've booked your photoshoot we will schedule your ordering session approximately 2 weeks later. Once your order is placed you can expect to receive your portraits within 2 weeks. Albums can take 4-6 weeks. *If you are on a payment plan, portraits will be delivered once final payment has been received.

WHEN WILL WE GET OUR PHOTOS?

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A SESSION?

Family Sessions run between 1-2 hours. We can shoot at the studio, your home or outdoor location of your choice. Travel fees apply to distances over 15 miles. Make sure the children have napped and been fed, (this includes dads) to have the best experience. I will pose and guide your family through the entire shoot. Children don't intimidate me, remember I have 9 of my own. So relax and leave the work up to me!
Modern Portraiture sessions take approximately 3 hours. Come with no makeup on and your hair clean and dry. Bring at least 3-5 outfits and we will go through them together to decide what will work best. You will relax as your hair & makeup are professionally applied. Enjoy appetizers and champagne as you're pampered like a princess! During your photoshoot I will completely guide and pose you to look your very best.

WHAT'S INCLUDED IN THE COLLECTIONS?

Your Collection Sessions include pre consultation to personally stylize your shoot. Hair & Makeup is included for Portrait Collections and is available for purchase for Family Sessions. Each Collection includes professionally printed 7x10 Portraits in an 11x14 mat. You will receive a USB including digital files for every image purchased.

WHAT DO WE WEAR?

This is everyones biggest question! No worries I will guide you from beginning to end with your session. We will discuss style, colors & outfits during your consultation. It is best to keep clothing simple with no logos, busy patterns or bright colors. Think about textures, layers and accessories. For Family Sessions, look at stores like Gap, Children's Place and Janie & Jack for inspiration. Check out my Pinterest board too!
