FAQ

How do I decide what to wear for my session?
I am here to help you! You can text me pics of outfits you are considering and I can give you feedback. The most important thing is that you feel beautiful and confident in your chosen clothing since that will shine through in your photos!

What happens if it rains?
I am happy to reschedule for another day if weather becomes a problem. We will be in touch the morning of our session and I will make the final decision 4 hours before your scheduled session start time to decide whether rescheduling would be in our best interest. We want you to have those gorgeous photos that you are desiring! Keep in mind though that my next available session may not be for several weeks.

How much should I expect to invest?

The $249 session fee due at booking includes your pre-session consultation, the session itself, the retouching time and your Session Premiere when I show you the final images in a slide show and together we design your collection. No digital images or print products are included in this cost. Collections start at $750, but clients typically invest upwards of $1800. You may also choose to shop from the a la carte menu items, which start at $440 which is the minimum order requirement due the day of your shoot. This deposit will be applied towards the cost of your order at your Session Premiere 2-3 weeks following your shoot, when I will show you your full gallery of retouched images to choose from. If you have a gift certificate, this may be redeemed to use towards the cost of your collection, but may not be used towards the initial deposit to book your session. Gift certificates are not valid for mini session fees, other promotional offers or stand alone products. Only one gift certificate may be redeemed for each session and they have no cash value so may not be cashed in.  If you choose to reschedule your session within less than 72 hours notice before your session for any reason other than sickness or weather, your session fee will be retained and a new session fee will be required for the new date of your session.

Are digital negatives available?
Yes! As a mother myself, I know how valuable these are to you so they are available to purchase within my collections. Digital files and products are only available the night of your Session Premiere.

When can I expect to see my photos following our portrait session?
We will schedule your session premiere within two weeks of our session at which time you will see your complete set of retouched images and together we will design your collection using your favorite images from your session.

Do you offer hair and makeup?
Yes, I work with professional hair and makeup artists that I would be happy to refer you to for your session. Please allow an extra 2 hours if you plan to have hair and makeup done before your session. Hair and makeup is not included in your session fee, so this would be a separate fee if you decide to add these services.

How long will the session last?
Sessions for senior girls are typically 60-90 minutes in length, but there are no time constraints. Senior guy session are typically 45 minutes. Family sessions are typically 60 minutes in length.

Can I share my images on social media?
With every digital image purchased, I will send you a high resolution file and a web-sized, watermarked file of the image. You are welcome to share the web file on social media platforms and please tag my business when you do so. Please do not alter this image in any way including cropping, filtering, removing my logo, etc.
