When should I schedule a session?
Spring, Summer and Fall are popular times of year. I can schedule sessions any day, but am less available Monday through Friday. I suggest to shoot within 2 hours of sunrise and sunset for outdoor and middle of the day for inside of your home (depending on how the natural light falls in your house).
How do I schedule a newborn session?
My preference is to photograph newborns between 1-3 weeks, but I'm flexible. Newborn sessions can last up to 2 hours.
What if I need to reschedule or cancel?
If you need to reschedule, we'll find a new session date that works for both of us at no charge. I do ask for a 25% non-refundable deposit to hold your date.
Would you travel for a session?
Yes, I love to travel and explore new, amazing places. Depending on distance, there may be an additional fee.
What can I expect during the session?
A fun experience of playing and hanging out while capturing the emotions of the moment. I shoot on location at your home, neighborhood, in a park or a fun urban location that allows for some playtime.
How long is a session?
Sessions usually take 1 hour for individual/family, 2 hours for newborn, 15 minutes for a mini (at a specified location).
What should we wear?
Colors and layers are fun. I would avoid white, loud patterns, logos, characters, writing and all wearing the same color. One wardrobe change is also doable if you'd like variety.
Should we bring anything with us?
A blanket and any special toy/prop that is fun for you (bubbles, balloons, balls, chalk, numbers, etc.). It's also a good idea to bring snacks for the little ones.
How do I prepare for a newborn session, do I need anything?
I try to keep it as stress free as possible and work with or around feedings.
What if it rains?
If the weather is not on our side, we'll either move the shoot indoors or reschedule. I'll contact you a day or two before our session if weather looks bad. I tend to mostly use natural light.
How soon can I see/download the photos?
Images will be uploaded to your private online gallery within 3 weeks of the session.
How many photos will I see and get to keep?
I select and edit the best images from our session, a minimum of 50 images. You receive these as high resolution jpeg files. For mini sessions, you receive a minimum of 5 images.
What if I'm unhappy with the photos?
I want you to love your photos. If you are not happy, I will work with you to make it right.
Will the images be in color or black & white?
You will receive your images in a combo of color and B&W.
Do you offer prints?
Yes, you can order prints right from your personal online gallery using my pro lab. Print delivery will vary depending on items purchased.
Do you offer albums?
Yes, you can order a layflat album with carefully selected photos and layout for an additional fee.
