Booking a Session...
Each personalized photo session includes careful planning and thought to make your photo experience reflect who you are. If you have a particular theme in mind, please let us know. If you'd like photos captured at different locations during your session, there will be $25 fee for an extra location.
Once you have chosen a date and time , a non-refundable retainer invoice of $50 (plus tax) will be emailed to you and payment must be received within two weeks to secure the session date. You will also receive a contract to sign and return to us.
Session prices are non-negotiable. However, I would be happy to set up a payment plan for your convenience. If you're interested in a payment plan, simply let us know. Please remember that 6% sales tax will be added to all session fees, print and product orders. The balance must be paid in full on the date of your photo shoot. Cash, check, and major credit cards are accepted.
Timing for Sessions...
The best lighting for outdoor shoots is during the couple hours after sunrise or the couple hours before sunset. For best results and consistency, I try to book most shoots during these times.
Newborn shoots are booked in the morning in studio or at your home.
Preparing for your Session...
Approximately one week prior to your session you will receive a confirmation email, directions and an attached questionnaire. This questionnaire is extremely important and helps both you and I prepare for your upcoming session. It compiles special photo requests as well as the personalities of individuals being photographed, color schemes of outfits, color preferences, backdrop choices, etc. If you have a particular theme in mind, please let us know.
I have many props and backdrops to choose from. For newborn sessions, we will use five to six set-ups for the photo shoot. I am happy to work with you to pick props and backgrounds that fit your style and color themes. For all other sessions, if you are looking for something specific, please do not hesitate to ask. I love planning with clients to get all of the details set before the shoot.
After the Session...
Within three weeks of your session, you will receive an email with a password protected online gallery to view your proofs. At this time, you will select the number of images included in your package as favorites. You do have the option to purchase additional images or the entire gallery, if you decide you want more than what your package included. Once you have selected your favorites, the photos will go through a final round of editing. Extensive editing or head swap requests will be an additional charge. Once edits are complete, you will then receive your final gallery with a print release at which time you may then download all of the images digitally.
Final wedding galleries are delivered within 12 weeks from the wedding date.
Ordering prints and other products...
You do have the ability to order professional quality prints, canvases, photo album books, and other products through the final gallery which are shipping directly to your home within a couple weeks. If you prefer your images mailed to you on a USB flash drive, there will be a $30 fee.
