Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT ARE YOUR RATES AND WHAT IS INCLUDED?
Rates and packages vary depending on the type of service. Please contact me for specific rates and packages or to discuss a custom package to meet your budget.
IS A RETAINER REQUIRED TO HOLD A SESSION TIME?
Yes, a non-refundable retainer is required at time of booking, which applies towards the total session fee. If you need to reschedule your session 72 hours notice is required or your retainer will be forfeited.
DO YOU HAVE A PAYMENT PLAN?
Yes, I do. Please specify at time of booking if this is an option you need to take!
ALL THE WOMEN ON YOUR SITE LOOK LIKE MODELS. I AM NOT A MODEL - WILL YOU STILL WORK WITH ME?
None of the women on my site are models. In fact, I most enjoy working with women who have never been in front of a professional camera before, or whose last stab at it was senior portraits a decade (or three...) ago.
I love nothing more than to take a "not a model" woman and make her eyes fill up with tears when she sees that she is indeed, just like a model; just like all the women on my site.
All that is required from you is trust. :)
WILL YOU HELP ME PREPARE FOR MY SESSION?
Yes! We will have a pre-session consultation so I can get to know you a bit and discuss your goals so I can bring your vision to life.
Before the session I will direct you through the entire process, from choosing your wardrobe to grooming, hair, and make-up advice (the professional hair and makeup add-on is highly recommended), and even what to wear on the way to your session.
You can text or call me with any questions before your session date, including while you're out shopping for wardrobe or if you have any night-before jitters. And I love when my clients share inspiration photos with me. We can start a private Pinterest board or you can send any ideas my way via text or email.
The more prepared you are, the better our session will go.
I DON'T KNOW HOW TO POSE!
During the shoot, I will help you with expressions, pose you from head to toe, guide your breathing, and do everything to help you look your very best. No posing skills are required coming into the session.
I DON'T KNOW HOW TO DO MAKEUP FOR A PHOTO SHOOT!
I strongly recommend the professional makeup add-on regardless of your makeup skills. Makeup for a photo shoot is different than every-day or even glam night makeup. If you choose to do your own I will give you some guidance pre-session.
I HAVE CELLULITE/WRINKLES/I'M NOT AS SKINNY/YOUNG AS I WANT TO BE/I HATE MY [INSERT BODY PART] ETC.
100% of the women who have stepped in front of my camera have expressed similar concerns. 100% have been happy with the results post-session. My clients range in age from 20-60+ and everyone brings in some concerns about their appearance. So you are not alone in feeling some self-consciousness and I'd love the opportunity to help you see how beautiful you are, so called "flaws" and all. :)
WILL MY PHOTOS BE RETOUCHED?
Yes, retouching is included as part of the package session fee.
WHAT IS YOUR IMAGE TURNAROUND TIME?
Approximately one week or less after our shoot, we will get together for your photo reveal/selection. For out-of-town clients this is done via Skype. Once your photos are selected they will be edited within approximately three weeks (product delivery within four to five weeks post-session). If you need your images or products sooner, faster turnaround times are usually feasible with a $100 rush fee.
WILL MY PHOTOS BE POSTED ONLINE?
Many of my clients are teachers, lawyers, doctors, or other professionals who need privacy - and this is of utmost importance. Images in my online portfolio are shared only with express written permission.
WHAT PRODUCTS DO YOU OFFER?
I offer custom-designed albums and high-quality mounted prints on archival paper, canvas, and metal. These may be purchased as part of your initial package at a discount or post-session once you view your images.
DO YOU SHOOT COUPLES?
Yes. Yes. Yes! I love couples sessions! Please reach out to get yours scheduled as I have limited availability for couples sessions.
I HAVE A QUESTION YOU DIDN'T ANSWER...
