FAQ

This is a work in progress!  Will be adding more Frequently Asked Questions in as I have time.  If there is something you would like to see here, let me know!

Q: How much does my session cost and when do I pay?  

A:  A family session is currently $300.00.  I will be collecting a retainer fee of $50.00 at time of booking.  This will go towards your session fee and is transferrable if a reschedule is needed.  The $50.00 is not refundable if you decide to cancel.


Q: How long does it take to recieve the edited photos after our session?

A: It can take at least 3weeks (depending on time of year) to receive your edited photos in an online gallery that you will be able to download.  During my busy season it CAN take longer.  If you need your photos by a certain date that doesn't fit this timeline, please let me know in advance to see if I can accomodate you!


Q:  How many photos will I recieve?

A: For a family/portrait session, at least 35 images.  Newborn lifestyle, at least 45 images.

Q:  What kind of photos do you capture?

A:  I really try to do a mix of lifestyle and enviormental portraits.  I don't want to spend the whole session getting everyone to look at the camera and smile.  I don't do face swaps.  Sometimes we get a wonderful family photo with everyone looking, sometimes we don't.  My focus is more on connections, moments and details.  I try to incorporate beautiful light when it's available. It's important to know what your priority is and make sure we're a good fit!  There are so many wonderful photographers out there so there is no reason to compromise.  I want you to hire me because you appreciate my creative vision.

Q:  What should we wear?

A:  I get this question a lot.  Fashion is not my forte, but I have found a lot of great places that have good ideas and information.  I will say this, make sure you feel comfortable.  You don't want to be busy adjusting your clothing or not be able to roll around with your kiddos because of what you're wearing.  Also, I caution people from wearing necklaces or other accessories that can "move" out of place.  I am often focused on keeping your kids entertained and don't notice that kind of stuff until afterwards!
People sometimes coordinate their outfits and it looks lovely, but I would suggest staying away from too matchy, matchy.  Also, bright neon colors can affect your skin tone.  Here are some good links from some people that have a lot more to say about this than I do.  If I had my way, you'd all be in your pjs with bed head! :)
