Do you include makeup in your price?
A. No. I do not include makeup in my price. Makeup can be done in-studio with a makeup artist, but I will need to know at the time of booking if that is what you would like to do so I can allot enough time in the booking.
I can provide a list of MUA's I have worked with in the past if you need.
Do you require a deposit?
A. Yes. I require a $100 non-refundable deposit to hold the date and time in my calendar, your remaining balance is due the day of the shoot.
What is your cancellation and rescheduling policy?
A. Rescheduling is free up to two weeks before your shoot date. If you must reschedule after the two week period, your deposit is kept and must be repaid to rebook. Please email us email@example.com at your earliest convenience if you need to cancel or reschedule.
What is the difference between editing and retouching?
A. Editing is a basic correction of images, whereas retouching is actual photo manipulation to change the look. Retouching includes blemish correction, skin smoothing, body modification, or any other photo manipulation that requires the use of photoshop.
We are used to seeing retouched images in print, so keep this in mind when viewing your own selection gallery!
Do you deliver every image you shoot?
A. No, I do not.
I eliminate duplicate images, test shots, missed focused shots, shots with bad expressions and any other images that may dilute the overall product delivery. I will eliminate any images that I feel are duplicates and only deliver the best one for your selection.
How long does it take to get my images?
A. Short answer: Approximately 4 weeks
My process is as follows:
Step 1) Pay retainer and book
Step 2) Shoot
Step 3) Viewing and proofing gallery delivered within 7 days
Step 4) Selection of images within 7 days of gallery delivery
Step 5) Retouching + final delivery (if your session includes it) within 2 weeks of selection
Do you provide props?
A. No. I do not provide props. Props are limited to the space or studio that is rented for your shoot.
Clients are encouraged to bring as many props as you would like. Some prop examples include birthday cakes, balloons, pillows, microphones, plants, inflatable animals, angel wings, etc.
What is a Full Library?
A. Your full library can be added onto your booking for an additional $450 fee. This cost grants you the ability to download and keep all the high resolution images from your shoot that are delivered during the selection process. These images are delivered digitally and are unedited and unretouched.
Do you have a client closet?
A. No, I can provide a list of Stylists I have worked with in the past upon request.
I would like to hire you to take our family photos but I don't see a family photo option. Do you take family photos?
A. Yes! I will photograph families and engagement sessions.
Every type of portrait session (except modeling digitals and business headshots) will fall under my Celebratory Portrait Session for $575. Because more people = more work, each additional family member that will be photographed during your session is an additional $100.
