HOW MUCH CAN WE EXPECT TO INVEST?
I require a $250 session retainer for an "a la carte" session or a percentage of your Images Collection to confirm and hold your selected date. This retainer is nonrefundable in the event of cancellation. In the event of bad weather, sessions can be rescheduled.
I offer a wide variety of products that can be purchased either within a collection, or 'a la carte'. Lifestyle Collections start at 495 dollars. Please inquire for a complete price list. All pricing subject to local tax. Additional costs for travel will be quoted if outside of service area.
WHY SHOULD WE INVEST WITH YOU?
I am passionate about creating images that will have meaning to your family. I document families as I want mine to be photographed. My style is a mix of modern portraiture and lifestyle photography. I direct during my sessions, I don't pose. I want you to feel comfortable and be yourself and most of all, I want you to trust my vision and ability to photograph each session to represent the true you.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SEE OUR IMAGES ONLINE?
2-3 weeks after your session.
HOW WILL WE VIEW OUR IMAGES?
I have a private online gallery that is iPad and iPhone friendly. I would always suggest viewing your Images from you home computer though. Feel free to share your images on any social media site. My ONLY request is, to list me as your photographer when you do share on social media sites with a link back to my website or your session.
CAN WE SHARE OUR IMAGES ON FACEBOOK AND INSTAGRAM?
Yes please, I absolutely encourage this. I only have ONE request. If you do share these Images, please credit my business. I know sometime you get so excited to share the beautiful images and completely forget to credit the my business. I take pride in all the work I deliver, I would love for your friends and family to know who captured these memories for you.
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?
I have a Pinterest Board that I constantly add clothing ideas to. Some of my favorite stores are Zara, H&M, J.Crew, Gap... Keep it simple, stay away from logo's or too bright colors. Make sure your color palettes work together. And of course we could always chat about this more in detail. And by no means do you have to go out of purchase new outfits for the session.
SHOULD WE GET OUR HAIR DONE?
Great question. If you are considering a hair cut, I recommend scheduling this about 2 weeks prior to your session, especially boy haircuts.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A FULL SESSION AND A MINI SESSION?
Mini Sessions last for 20-30 minutes. You'll proof 30 photographer curated Images online, and be able to download 8 Images via Digital Download.
Full Sessions last can last up to 90 minutes. You'll proof about 60-80 Images online, and be able to select your Digital Downloads based on your Collection selected. This is ideal for families who wish to capture a mixture of Portraits and Lifestyle and let your children's personality shine through.
CAN I PURCHASE ADDITIONAL DIGITAL NEGATIVES WITH A MINI SESSION?
Yes, I offer additional sets of 10 | 20 | Complete set.
WHAT IS THE BEST TIME TO SCHEDULE OUR SESSION?
This all depends on what type of session you are booking.
Maternity, Kids and Family Session, I usually wait for the last beautiful light of the day. I like to meet up for these sessions about 2 hours before sunset. Sessions can also be scheduled for early mornings.
Newborns at Home: These I like to schedule in the morning. They could be schedule later in the day as well. It really depends on your little one, these sessions can last up to 4 hours. When deciding on a time, keep in mind when the light is the best in your home.
WHERE SHOULD WE SCHEDULE OUR SESSION?
Sessions can be done anywhere! I love outdoor locations in the later afternoon, Indoor locations in the morning. We can do a session in your home, your backyard.. At the local coffee or Ice cream shop. I want you to think of things you like to do as a family. Lets try and incorporate them in a way.
Newborns, I usually suggest photographing them at your home, rooms with lots of natural light is key.
Maternity, Babies and Family Sessions can be done almost anywhere. Open field, Park... on the riverbank.. in the city, in a parking garage, or we can just stay home. Photographing your session in an environment where you are comfortable and relax will contribute to a successful session. But lets talk about all the options available. This is not a decision you would have to make on your own.
