Do you tell us how to pose? I don't want to look awkward
OF COURSE! While I promote natural, candid photos. I'm also there to support you all the way. I'll pose you if posed photos are what you're looking for, don't worry. I'd never let you look awkward.
How should we dress for our family session?
All of my client's have access to a comprehensive styling guide upon booking with me with all the information, tips, and tricks you'll ever need!
What’s the best time to have a session with a newborn?
1 Hour before sunrise, or 2 hours before sunset are my favorite times to shoot, but I am able to capture amazing images at any time of day.
How long will it take to receive my gallery?
I strive to have all my client's galleries delivered within 3 weeks of their session date.
How much re-touching do you do?
I'm a big believer in natural beauty. During my editing process I use what are called Brushes. These very lightly smooth skin, even skin tone, cover blemishes and all in all enhance what is already there. I don't do any retouching that involves manipulating body parts.
Is there a limit on the amount of photos I receive?
The amount of final images you receive depends on the package you choose. But don't worry, if you end up wanting more images than what was included in your session you have the options to purchase more from the store attached to your gallery.
How long do I have access to my images for?
You have access to your completed gallery for 30 days after delivery. After that your gallery will be archived and a $40.00 unarchive fee will be charged if you need to access your images again. I will hold on to your images for 6 months to 1 year on my external hard drive, but it is up to you to make sure you store your photos correctly.
Do you work with a second shooter?
No, I tend to work on my own unless it's a larger event ( like a wedding ). If you would like a second shooter, I do have someone I work with but you will be charged the second shooter fee.
How long have you been a photographer?
I have been photographing since 2021 :)
Do you deliver raw files?
No. I will never deliver any raw files to my clients. It is not a representation of my work and most of the time client's don't have any use for RAW files.
Do I own the copyright to my photos once you deliver them to me?
No. I remain copyright ownership even after a gallery has been delivered.
What if the weather is bad?
I can reschedule sessions due to inclement weather. Sessions will be rescheduled in a timely manner within 2 weeks of the postponed date.
What form of payments do you accept?
I accept payment from all major credit cards. I can also accept payment VIA E-Transfer.
What is your cancellation policy?
I require you to cancel/reschedule your session no later than 48 hours prior to the session. I understand things come up and it is not always in my clients control and I will work with those clients.
Can I bring as many people as I want to my session?
No. My base session price is based on 1-5 individuals. If you wish to have a larger group, I offer custom quotes. If you show up to your session with more individuals than I was aware of, a fee of $50.00 per extra person will be charged and must be paid before the session starts.
