FAQ

Where will the photos be taken? Do you have a studio?

Typically, my sessions are done outdoors, as I do not have a studio space. My aim is to capture the natural moments, so on locations sessions lend well to that! Don’t worry, I’ll get some shots of everyone smiling at the camera for you to send your mom, too!

While I do not have a studio, I do offer in home lifestyle sessions, and am happy to chat about other indoor locations that are special to you, such as coffee shops, libraries, and other places that help tell your unique story! Contact me to talk about your location ideas!

How much does a session cost?

What if it rains, or we need to reschedule?

We can’t control the weather (too bad, huh!?), so if the day of your session is crummy, we will reschedule for another date convenient to you, as close to your original date as possible, at no additional cost. 

Should you need to reschedule due to an emergency, or illness, I ask that you give me as much notice as possible. I understand that sometimes, things happen last minute, so as long as you give me a heads up, there will be no charge for one session reschedule. Should you reschedule more than once, a $50 fee will apply. 

Can we download our pictures on the computer?

Because I am so passionate about photos being printed at high quality labs, my session prices do not include digital downloads (learn more about my products, and why printing your images, at a professional lab, is important here). However, I know how important it is to have great images from your session to share on social media, or email to family members, so I do include a digital copy of your favorites for sharing. Additionally, digitals may be purchased, or earned with prints of 8×10 and larger!

How long after the session does it take to receive our images?

After your session, you can expect to see a sneak peak on my Facebook page within 4 days. I encourage you to share the images with your friends and family, but please do not save them to your computer! The files are low resolution web files, so they are not sized for anything but Facebook.

Approximately two weeks after your session, we will get together for your viewing appointment, where you will see all of your fully edited images (learn more about the appointments here)! I will help you decide which products would be best for your needs, and you’ll be able to order your products and/or digitals right there!

Once your order is placed, you can typically expect to receive your order within 7 days.

Can we include pets in our session?

Absolutely! I have four fur babies myself, so I know that they are just as much a part of your family as anyone else! Please keep in mind that I’m not a dog whisperer, so I can’t guarantee to get anything but shots of your pet’s behind if that’s all he/she is willing to show me!

I typically suggest pockets full of treats (a bribe never hurts!), and having someone who will not be involved in the session tagging along so that they can take over pet duty while he/she is not being photographed.

What should we wear?

Dressing for your session can be stressful! I totally get it. I have put together some great resources for you to use to make dressing for your session a breeze.
