What can I expect from the session?
During your session, you can expect to relax, have fun and be yourself. Sure, I may set up the shots but, I want you to shine through! If you have certain shots in mind, please tell me. I want to give you the best photography experience possible. I am totally go with the flow!
What should I wear?
It is best to keep clothing simple, avoiding logos or busy patterns. I always suggest layers/textures. In group photos, color coordinating is always more pleasing to the eye. Wear clothes that represent you and who you are. Feel free to bring a change of clothing as well!
What to bring?
For family and/or children photo sessions: outfit changes, a drink, favorite toy, special stuffed animal, blanket to sit on. Please make sure your little one has been fed and had a nap before the photo session for a more comfortable and positive experience.
How long does the photo shoot session last?
The actual session itself usually lasts about 1-2 hours or up to 3 hours for a newborn session.
Wedding day coverage is 8 hours (additional hours can be purchased).
How do we book you?
Simply let me know you would like to book a photo shoot session, what dates work best for you and what type of session you are looking for through my contact page or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. For wedding photography please send me your date & venue locations and I will send you the wedding contract with more information.
When will I receive my photos?
At most, 3 weeks after your session (weddings usually 8-12 weeks depending on the time of year), I will have your custom online gallery completed, your gallery will usually consist of 50-100 pictures (usually a lot more for weddings, 400-800). Pictures will be professionally edited, color corrected(if needed), some offered in black & white and all in high resolution. I will usually post a sneak peek photo of the session on my website and/or Facebook page within a few days of your session. You will receive a signed print release for all of the photos on the gallery. This allows you the freedom to have ALL the pictures from the day of the shoot, with corrections made, to make prints from anywhere.
Are there any additional charges for me to receive my photos?
I charge a one-time flat rate for your pictures which are taken at the location of YOUR choice. No added sitting fees, special effect fees or huge prices for portraits. The price quoted does include the photo shoot, your online gallery containing all of your images with permission for you to share and print the photos from anywhere and keep forever.
Where will the photos be taken?
The location of the photo session is up to you. Ideally I prefer to use natural, available light (for weddings (esp indoor venues) I do use an external flash). Once your photo shoot date is booked we will discuss what type of feel you are looking for in your photographs, we can then work together to come up with the perfect location. Newborn photo sessions are almost always held within the comfort of your own home. I love doing in-home shoots!
Do you only offer the photos on CD or do you offer prints?
The price listed includes the price of all of the photos on an online gallery, if you are interested in having a CD made I am happy to help you with that. I do order prints from outside professional printers and vendors, so if you are interested in ordering prints we can discuss sizes and prices that work best for you.
I love doing photography for any occasion. If you have an occasion in mind you do not see listed, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Or if you have any questions about anything you see, please let me know. I would love to hear from you. Thank you!
