Q: Where do portrait sessions take place?
A: Sessions can be in my studio or a more popular choice, on location. The possibilities are endless really! Let’s get creative!
Q: When should I book my session?
A: Summer sessions book 2-3 months in advance. I have a set number of summer sessions, with most of those dates designed for senior sessions on week nights.
Q: Do you book on weekends?
A: I have created my schedule with seniors in mind, especially in the summer. I intentionally keep my weeknights open just for you guys! Weekend sessions are not available unless it’s a destination session or you are traveling a distance to me.
Q: What time of the day is best for sessions?
A: That totally depends! While I prefer to shoot closest to sunrise and sunset as the light during those times is soft and makes you look amazing! Mid morning or late afternoon has its advantages as well. We will go over all the options at your consult.
Q: Can I bring a parent or friend to the shoot?
A: If you are under 18, I prefer you bring a parent. As for friends, I am not opposed to a friend coming with but one thing to keep in mind that this day is about you. Friends are sometimes a great second set of eyes but can also slow down our shooting time and I want you to get the most from your session.
Q: What happens if the weather is poor the day of our outdoor session?
A: Mother Nature certainly can bring us some amazing senior session evenings but when the weather forecast isn’t going to cooperate, we will discuss the best plan of action. We will determine if re-scheduling is best and find the next possible date that works for us.
Q: How long does a session last?
A: Photography sessions are up to 3 hours long. This could include shooting time, traveling between locations and some lighting setup. This is why its important to have a consult session; we formulate a plan for session date to maximize our time together. I don’t want to get to the end of our session knowing we did not get all the shots.
Q: How many outfits can I bring?
A: Short answer, as many as you want! I encourage 4-6 outfits that are wrinkle free, fit you well, and you are comfortable in them. You maybe sitting on the ground, bending and moving around so clothing that has some stretch is always a good idea.
Q: What forms of payments do you accept?
A: Payment methods include cash, check, and Credit Cards When is payment due? A $250 non-refundable deposit and signed contract secures your session date. The Minimum Product Order of $300 is due the day of the session. You are under no obligation to make additional purchases.
Q: Am I required to buy print products?
A: No, your only requirement for products is paying the Minimum Product Order of $300. You have the option to purchase individual items, such as digitals, off the Ala Carte page or Collections, which bundle together products to save you money over the Ala Carte.
Q: Do you accept payment plans?
A: Yes, I accept payment plans as well as Credit Card. No products will be delivered without full payment. We can talk about this at your Consult appointment.
