FAQs + Information
What is the turnaround time to receive my photos?
Sneak peek: 1-2 days
Completed online gallery delivery: 2 weeks or less for portrait sessions, 4 weeks or less for coverage events.
Do I have to print photos through you?
No you do not, however I cannot guarantee quality from any outside printer! I use a professional gallery-quality photo printing lab.
What if I want more images than are included in my package?
Additional digital images are available for purchase a la carte!
Can you help me with styling?
Absolutely! Check out my Pinterest page for outfit inspiration. I always suggest that you go for coordinating colors, rather than matching colors. I say leave the white shirt + jeans combo x 8 people in the 90s where it belongs.
Can I send you my Pinterest page of photos that I want?
You are certainly welcome to share your vision with me and we will use that as inspiration to create our own unique works of art, rather than replicating someone else's.
When should I take maternity photos?
Give or take 30 weeks is ideal.
Do you offer payment plans?
Yes I do! A 50% non-refundable retainer is required to book your portrait session and payments can be arranged for the remaining balance. Total balance is due 1 week prior to your session.
Do you charge sales tax?
Yes; since I am a registered and licensed small business owner, I follow local & state sales tax regulations.
What kind of equipment do you use?
I started with Canon and I'm still using Canon! I use a full frame camera with an assortment of lenses based on the needs of the session.
Do you deliver RAW images? Can I edit them them myself? Can I see all the pictures you took?
The common misconception to those outside of our field is that RAW files are raw, unedited images; however RAW is a file type just like JPEG is a file type and it takes special software to be able to even view these files. I do not release RAW files for any reason, nor do I release any unedited files. All editing/retouching is performed by me to remain in line with my brand. You will see only my very best from our session, chosen and finished with the utmost care and consideration of my clients.
Can you "Photoshop" me?
Photoshop is a useful software tool, not a verb! I will retouch photos as needed to make them look fabulous and for you to see the best version of yourself, but I'm not here to change who you are! I will take care of any temporary blemishes (i.e. pimples, scrapes, bruises) that would typically disappear on their own.
