FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW SOON SHOULD I BOOK MY SESSION?
As soon as possible. I usually book up at least 3 weeks in advance and much sooner (5-8 weeks in advance) during the busy fall season (Sept – Nov) and on weekends, so call right away to ensure you get your desired date!
I DON’T WANT TO SPEND A LOT OF MONEY, CAN I STILL GET GOOD PHOTOS?
In all honesty, like most things, you get what you pay for. If your friend’s sister’s cousin does photography for free, your photos will look like your friend’s sister’s cousin did them for free. If that’s okay with you, great – we all have different style & budget preferences. If you are looking for quality, experience, and the peace of mind knowing you’ll have awesomely good photos, we’ll be a great fit!
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AT MY SESSION?
Expect to have a relaxed FUN time! I am easy going and approach each session differently based on the end goals of each client. You can expect me to interact with your kids, possibly tell a few jokes, make obnoxious animal noises, any maybe even balance a shoe on my head – but most assuredly make a complete fool of myself all in the name of genuine smiles & good fun. We’ll capture a traditional portrait and then move on to the fun stuff that truly showcases who you are as a family. I want this to be a fun experience for the whole family, and I have plenty of tricks to ensure that I get great images from every session.
DO WE COME TO YOUR STUDIO?
Families and kids are photographed outdoors on-location from April – November as weather permits. Studio sessions are reserved for newborns, milestone sessions, and winter months.
HOW CAN I PREPARE FOR MY SESSION?
Upon booking your session, I will send you a private link to the client info site which provides in depth information on what you can expect and helpful infomation and suggestions on preparing for your session. No worries, I’ve got you covered!
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF MY CHILD IS SICK?
I want you to love your images, and sick grumpy kids and photo sessions just don’t mix! I reserve plenty of time for rescheduling due to illness if need be.
HOW LONG WILL MY SESSION LAST?
This will ultimately depend on the type of session you book. Full sessions generally last about an hour or a little longer depending on the goals for the session and the needs of the child. Most younger kids (and some dads!) will start to lose interest after about 30 minutes so I’m always mindful of ages and aim to maximize our time together as much as possible. Half sessions are usually 30 mins and mini sessions are 15-20 mins.
WHEN WILL I SEE MY IMAGES?
About 7-10 days after your session your images will be presented to you in a private, password protected online gallery. You will have 7 days to complete your order online.
DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH EXTENDED FAMILIES?
Yes! I usually take on a limited amount of extended family sessions per year and the pricing is slightly different than what is posted on the site. Send me a message with your details and we can go from there.
ARE YOU AVAILABLE TO PHOTOGRAPH WEDDINGS?
I am flattered to get this request, but I do not offer wedding services at this time.
DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH SENIORS?
I don’t generally photograph seniors, but will take a session here and there. Feel free to shoot me a message and if I’m not able to photograph the session, I am happy to offer a referral.
