What does the session fee include?
Your session fee includes my time and talent during your session, professional culling and editing a final selection of images, and an online proofing gallery. Prints, albums, and digital collections are purchased separately.
What about digitals? Are they included?
The session fee does not include digitals. However they are available for purchase through your online gallery and come with a print release. I do offer some packages that do come with digitals but it would specify in the package description (ie- Bundle of Joy Package or the All Inclusive Senior Package)
How Many images are available to select from with the portrait vs. petite session?
The Portrait Session (1 hour) yields about 30-40 images to select from via your online gallery whereas the Petite Session (30min) yields about 15 images.
How soon should I schedule my session?
My calendar starts to fill up between one and three months out, depending on the season, and I only schedule a set number of sessions per month. I recommend filling out the contact form and inquiring about a session as soon as possible!
How long until I get to see my images after my session date?
Clients will typically get a sneak peek via Instagram and/or Facebook in the week following their session, and can expect to receive the link to the finished gallery within two weeks. I always strive to complete them sooner — I know you are just as excited as I am about your photos! You will never have to wait beyond that two week delivery deadline though.
Do you offer mini sessions?
I do!! And I LOVE them. I offer a limited set of organized minis a few times per year, often in spring, summer, & fall. I announce them via my facebook page so be sure to like and follow to be notified. If you missed my minis or they didnt work out in your schedule my Petite sessions are available year round and only cost a bit more depending on what products you purchase post session.
What options do we have for locations?
I cannot imagine a better studio than what God has given us in nature, therefore I shoot nearly all of my sessions on location with beautiful natural light. I have worked hard to offer my clients locations that will guarantee the best light and shooting conditions, and provide those options when we finalize the session details. I am also more than happy to work in my clients’ homes — there’s nothing more personal than that! A final option is my favorite local natural light studio - available for an additional fee ($60).
Do you offer studio headshots?
I do not, not in the traditional sense. I specialize in lifestyle/ environmental portraits, typically at a location that highlights your brand, your business, and/or your personality. I love the feel that this type of headshot evokes, one that tells your story and engages the viewer and your potential clients.
When do newborn sessions take place?
I prefer to shoot newborn sessions within 7-14 days of baby’s arrival especially for in studio session where we are focused on more posed baby shots, however, if you select a lifestyle newborn session in your home which are more candid and not posed, I will photograph babies beyond that window up to four weeks.
