Booking FAQ
WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU TAKE?
I am very flexible with the payment form. We can do credit/debit cards, checks, mobile payment, and even cryptocurrencies (bitcoin etc.)
WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?
I know how life works. Kids get sick. Weather ruins the day. I want to make things as easy as possible for you. If you cancel giving me at least a 48 hour notice, I'll work with you to reschedule the shoot within the next 8 weeks (subject to my availability)
WOULD YOU PLEASE TRAVEL TO A FAR AWAY LAND?
I am willing to travel to your choice of location. Please inquire about this before you book with me since there is an additional cost to this.
WHAT DO YOU REQUIRE TO BOOK A SESSION?
Your session is not booked until you: (a) Fill out my questionnaire that helps me understand your needs, so I can give you the best experience! (b) Sign the contract (legal stuff to cover both involved parties) (c) Pay a 35% non-refundable retainer (so I can hold your session date & time for you)
I HAVE A FAMILY OF MORE THAN 8.
I would love to capture that love & warmth for you. Please inquire with me before booking since there is an additional cost to this.
Session FAQ
WHERE WILL MY SESSION BE HELD?
I am a natural light photographer who loves shooting in the very flattering evening hours. Together, we will choose the perfect location for your session.
DO YOU HELP DECIDING WHAT WE SHOULD WEAR?
Once you book a session with me, I shall send you an Outfit guide that will walk you through recommendations, must-haves, and things to avoid. Most importantly, dress comfortable!
DO YOU ALLOW OUTFIT CHANGES?
Yes! Your photos should be about you and your moment! I have no limitations on outfit changes, but changing outfits does eat away into your session time. I would recommend layering up with sweaters, jackets, shawls, hats, shirts to allow for different looks, and still be quick!
CAN I BRING A PET ALONG?
Sure! Pets are totally family members. Let's just make sure they are groomed, well behaved, and on a leash. Bring plenty of toys and treats to be safe.
WHAT TIME DO THE SESSIONS TAKE PLACE?
I love shooting a couple hours before sunset! The light is lovely, and the photos come out very flattering. If that time does not work for you, I'm happy to find a time that best suits your family.
Miscellaneous FAQ
WHAT PHOTOGRAPHY GEAR DO YOU USE?
I shoot with a Sony a7iii mirrorless system. I use a Sony 35mm 1.8 prime lens for family photos, and wider shots. I use a Sony 85mm 1.8 prime lens for fewer people, and close up shots. I edit all my images in Adobe Lightroom, with more detailed fixes in Photoshop.
CAN I GET ALL THE PHOTOS FROM MY SESSION?
I shoot probably 4 times the number of shots I deliver. I carefully look at every image from your session and hand select the best. I look for images that represent your family, are of the highest quality, and is radically unique.
CAN I HAVE THE ORIGINAL RAW IMAGES?
I'm sorry, but no. My editing style is part of my business. I take pride in my unique editing style and work towards delivering consistent results.
CAN I EDIT THE PHOTOS YOU GIVE ME?
I'm sorry, but that's a no too. The consistent editing style is part of my business, and having my photos show up in different editing styles can cause confusion.
CAN WE ORDER PRINTS ELSEWHERE?
Yes, you are free to order prints anywhere you like. Of course, I cannot back the quality of prints not printed through me. Printing through me allows me to finalize the cropping, colors, and contrast of your prints. Your printing is done by one of the nation's most respected & awarded companies. We start the process, and we should end the process. We know what our images should look like and know if a print doesn't match our product.
