When will we get our photos back?
Within three weeks from your session you will receive a link to view your photos in an online gallery. After selecting your favorites, your purchased images will be made available within 24 hours.
Can I purchase more pictures?
During the session we will take more pictures than what is offered in each package. After falling in love with your gallery, you will most likely decide to get all the pictures.
How does your booking process and payments work?
To get started, you can select an available date on my calendar and reserve it by submitting your non refundable retainer. I will follow up with our session contract, pre session questionnaire, and an invoice for the remaining balance. The remaining balance is due at least 24 hours before your session. Up until your session, you can make payments of any increment until paid in full.
Do you take any looking at the camera photos?
While my passion lies in creating storytelling and lifestyle images, I always make it a point during the session to get a great photo of the family happily looking at the camera because I believe that you need an image like this in your gallery. Typically we do this shot first before we move into the rest of the session. However if you expect to have multiple combinations of people all statically looking at the camera, I am not the right photographer for your needs. I do love to catch kids’ eyes and smiles throughout the session, so you will see a lot of those in your gallery!
What type of styling help do you provide?
What you wear plays a huge role in how your photos will look and how I will edit your session for a given location and light. I share my guidelines of what photographs well, give color scheme suggestions specific to your taste and your location, suggest my favorite retailers for photoshoots, and provide access to an online styling tool to help style your whole family. Most clients end up purchasing new clothing to mix with some of their existing pieces. I also love working on a look with you specific to your family if you have a unique styling vibe or idea.
How would you describe your photography style?
I try to keep my sessions very natural, capturing the action as it happens, so it's lots of fun and not too much posing. I feel this brings out individual personalities and also make the session more enjoyable.
What if its raining on the day of our session?
If it is overcast, we can still shoot we may just alter the time to a little earlier, but if it is raining we will reschedule to the soonest available date.
