Frequently Asked Questions
Before scheduling a photo shoot, you may have some questions. I’ve come up with a list of common questions. See my answers to those questions below.
How long will it take to receive our photos?
Usually I can get a gallery setup within a few days, but not always. In extreme cases, it will take about 7 days. Once you place your order, it will take up to 10 days for prints and up to 3 days for digital files.
What should we wear?
I say be comfortable! That said, there are still a few things to know about clothing and photography. See some of my tips by visiting my blog post, What To Wear.
What happens if it rains?
During rainy weather, I am happy to reschedule the shoot. I will be flexible to come up with a time that works for us both.
Do you have a studio?
I do not have a studio at this time. I like to shoot outdoors for the most part, unless it is an indoor lifestyle family shoot, in which case I come to your home. If you are interested in a studio, I can look into rentals for an additional charge.
What is your pricing?
My session fees can be found here. I can send you my print packages and digital file pricing via email. Just email me through my contact form.
What can I do to help the session go smoothly?
I think the best thing to do is try to relax and don’t overthink it. I know that sometimes with smaller kids it can be a bit stressful. I have found that the best sessions are when we let it happen naturally. I will give some direction though, but for the most part I want you to enjoy the session and have some fun!
What if my child doesn’t cooperate?
I try to approach the session as a fun activity that your kids are participating in. I introduce myself in the beginning and let them know we are here to have fun. I’m extremely patient, which usually helps in most situations. Sometimes I like to just go with the flow of things. Let things happen naturally. I may have an idea for a shot, but if it doesn’t work out exactly how I had planned for it, I’m ok with it. Sometimes the best shots are the ones that are not planned!
Can I keep my session images private?
All of my clients fill out a form before they work with me. There is a box that can be checked if you agree or don’t agree with a model release. If you prefer to keep your images private, then check off the box that indicates you don’t agree to a model release.
Do you include digital files?
Digital files can be purchased separately from the session fee, as can prints. Fill out my contact form to inquire about the pricing for both prints and digital files.
Do you offer mini-sessions?
I do offer mini-sessions, but only once or twice during the year. Follow me on Facebook to keep in the loop on those type of sessions.
