How far ahead of time should I book my session?
For portrait sessions, clients can book anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 months in advance. As soon as you know you would like a session, let me know!
For weddings, clients can book from 2 months to 1 year in advance. This typically depends on the client and what works best within their schedule.
I’ve booked my session – where do we take them?
Whether rural or urban, the setting should fit your personality. If you love the outdoors then the woods, mountains or the river might be right. If you love the feel of urban – the noise, the people, the architecture – a city atmosphere would be ideal. If it is a lifestyle session you are interested in, these are usually within the comfort of your own home where we can photograph you and your loved ones in your happy place. I have a long list of locations we can look through if you are stumped for ideas!
When is my session fee due?
For portrait sessions, the fee is due at the time of the session. That way, if any changes are made prior to the session, we can account for them.
Weddings require a 25% deposit to lock in your date, the remainder is due 1 week prior to the wedding.
What payment methods do you accept?
Cash or check is preferred, however, if you want to use a credit or debit card, you can do so via PayPal. **Please note that there are additional charges to use PayPal.**
What do I need to do to prepare for my session?
I always strive to capture my clients personal style so don’t be afraid to really show your personality. With any type of session – location, outfit changes, hair and make-up all need to be planned out ahead of time. I am here to be your guide through the entire process, so if you have any questions, please do not be afraid to ask!
What kind of colors/outfit should I wear?
This is a chance for you to show off your personality. The best kinds of images are the ones where you feel most comfortable. Don’t wear something that you do not feel like yourself in, or where you are uncomfortable. The best thing to do is to stick to the primary colors – red, blue, yellow – and go from there. Check out my pinterest button on the home page – I’ve pinned a ton of different outfit ideas that can help inspire you. Remember, I’m here to help so if you are stumped or want to know if you are on the right track, just ask!
How long will the session last?
Most sessions are about 1 – 2 hours, depending on the type of shoot. We will shoot until we run out of time, or we feel we have captured enough shots.
When will I receive my photos?
For portrait sessions, your photos will be uploaded to dropbox within 2 – 3 weeks after your session.
Weddings take a little bit longer and will be mailed within 6 – 8 weeks.
