Here are a few of the most frequently asked questions. Still have a question? Reach out!
How would you describe your photography style?
My goal is to capture authentic images that are filled with emotion. Genuine, real moments that make us both feel something when we view them.
Have a peak at some of my past work to get an idea of what my style looks like. You'll notice most images are either bright and airy or dark and moody. Editing is one of my favorite parts of photography, it gives me the chance to pull emotion out of the image even further.
I'm nervous, what can I do to help make the session go smoothly?
Don't be nervous! We'll walk through every step together. From picking a location, to organizing outfits, to posing and encouraging real emotion during our time together. The best thing you can do is relax and try to enjoy!
What if my children don't cooperate?
Children are unpredictable, I'm well aware! I promise I will capture pictures of your kiddos that you will love! I never push kids past their comfort zone, I work with them at their pace to capture them in their element. Not every moment of the session will be perfect, but I prefer it this way. It allows me to truly capture their little personalities. And more than likely these will turn out to be your favorite pictures!
What if my session gets rained out?
The weather can be very unpredictable. If our session gets rained out we will set up another date. There is no fee for reschulding due to weather. The sunshine plays a major role in my work and is definitely worth waiting for!
Do you provide black and white photos?
I do! I handpick photos for black and white. Not all photos translate well and I always want my b/w images to speak to your heart and serve a purpose. This is why I won't do every image in b/w. These are some of my absolute favorite images!
Will I receive every image you take?
I purposely over shoot during sessions. This way I can be sure I capture every little fleeting moment. Those little giggles and smiles, those eyes ALL open! Trust me, you don't want every picture I take. Half the art is culling the images and handpicking the best of the best. These are the images that will be delivered to you!
When will I receive my images?
I know you're excited and anxious to see your images, this is why I do my best to get them back to you as soon as I can. I will typically have your gallery ready between one and two weeks from session time. If for some reason I need more time I will contact you! I will also provide a few sneak peaks a couple days following our session so keep an eye on my blog and/or Facebook page!
Can we do an "at home" session?
Yes! I love true lifestyle photo sessions! If you're looking for something a bit more relaxed and low key, this type of session is for you! Get in touch with me and lets set something up!
Do you offer mini sessions?
Im looking for a session that I don't see offered on your website. Do you offer other types of sessions?
Yes! I listed the most popular types of sessions, but I am open to other ideas that you might have. I have done extended family, couples, cake smashes, lifestyle and lifestyle newborn. I've even done a chalk bomb photo session! Reach out and lets bring your ideas to life!
Do you have a referral program?
Yes! It is the highest compliment when I am referred to friends and family. And this is mainly how I build my business. I like to thank those that refer new clients to me with a 10% discount off your next session! So refer away!
I'm ready to book a session, now what?
Yay! Im so glad! You can connect with me through my site or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
First we'll set a location and date. Next you'll receive a contract from me to sign as well as a brief questionnaire so I can get an idea of your personality, style, as well as hopes and goals for the session--this will help me make sure you are left excited and proud with the end product. You will also receive a welcome packet from me by email. It covers what to expect, how to prepare for a session and it even includes a styling guide to take the pressure off of dressing everyone for your session.
A $75 nonrefundable deposit is due at the time of booking and the remainder of payment is due on the day of our session. I will send you an invoice for both payments.
