When can I schedule my session?
I am a natural, golden light photographer, so I shoot within the golden hours of the day: the hour before sunset and the hour after sunrise. Generally, on the weekends, I can schedule both morning and evening sessions, but during the weekdays, it's usually either/or depending on the day of the week. Keep this in mind when looking at your calendar to schedule a session.
When do I pay you?
When scheduling a session with me (mini or standard), a security deposit of $50.00 is due, and the remainder of the payment can be made before or on the scheduled shoot date in the form of cash, check, or e-payments, such as Venmo, Apple Pay, PayPal.
What if I need to cancel or reschedule?
I get it! Life is crazy and unpredictable sometimes. If you need to cancel, please remember that communication is key! Your security deposit will be refunded to you if you cancel your session more than 48 hours in advance. If you would like to reschedule, that can be decided at any time leading up to the day of your scheduled session, and your security deposit will be applied to the rescheduled date.
If rescheduling/cancellation is weather related, let's work together as a team to figure out what will be the best for you and your photos. Please, do not hesitate to reach out if you have concerns about weather!
Where do you photograph for your sessions?
I do not have a personal studio, and for this reason, I grown to love shooting in all kinds of locations. I love to be outside, in nature, in parks, along the ocean, on top of a mountain, in an empty field, or in the center of a city. Whatever your vision/dream is, I want to help bring it to life and capture it for you to cherish. Another option that I have been loving lately is in-home sessions. These are great for newborn photos, so that way your little one gets to stay comfy and cozy in his/her home, parents don't have to fuss about running around town to meet a photographer, and I come straight to you.
When will we get our photos?
Your will receive an online gallery link with all your photos within a maximum of 4 weeks. Most often it will be less than 4 weeks, but because I am a full-time student, it may be 2-3 weeks for a standard session and 4 weeks for a wedding or large event. Depending on which session you originally purchased (standard or mini), you will either be able to download all the images from your session immediately or favorite select photos to be downloaded upon approval from me.
How many pictures will we receive?
For a mini session, you can expect to receive back 30-40 fully edited images available for you to select 10+ favorites from. For a standard session, you can expect to receive back a minimum of 40 fully edited images available for you to immediately download. For wedding or large event coverage you will receive between 100-500 fully edited images (depending on the size and length of event). I always choose quality over quantity and that's why I will choose the best and more significant photos to tell your story.
I bought a mini session, but what if I want more photos?
The mini session comes with 10 images that you get to select and download from your online gallery. If after looking at your online gallery and deciding that you would like more than 10 images, you can purchase additional images for $8 each by simply selecting the ones you love, sending me a text, and figuring out the best way to exchange payment for the additional photos.
I bought a mini session, but I love all of the photos in my online gallery.
This is isn't a question - I know. But, it's something I hear time and time again. If you have initially purchased a mini session, but decide you would like all of the images in your online gallery, you have the option to upgrade to the standard session for $125. This way you are able to have ALL the photos in the online gallery and not split hairs over which one is your favorite!
