FAQs

How much is a session?

You can find my list of session fees here.  If you have any special requests or are looking for something that isn’t listed, please contact me.

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes! Every client’s needs are different, so please contact me if you would like to discuss a payment plan.

What should I wear?

This is such an important question! I’ve created a guide and you can access it here.  I’m also happy to discuss wardrobe with you anytime.

What time do you schedule sessions?

The ideal time for outdoor sessions is 2 hours before sunset, due to the dreamy light at this time of day.  If this doesn’t work for you or your family, we can arrange another time.  Nap times and happy kids are more important than dreamy light!  Newborn sessions are normally scheduled in the morning, when babies take a nice long nap after keeping their new parents up all night.

Do you photograph weddings?

At this time I am accepting a small number weddings and engagements. My typical wedding clients have intimate weddings with fewer than 100 guests and love candid and nature-filled wedding portraits. If you are interested in discussing your wedding, please contact me so we can chat over coffee!

I love flower crowns, can I have one for my session?

Absolutely! I love them too and have several to choose from.

How long does it take to get my proofs?

I professionally edit each image you receive.  Depending on the time of year, it can take 2-3 weeks to complete your session. Fall sessions can expect to wait up to 4 weeks.

How will I receive my photos?

You will receive an email with a link to your password protected gallery.  From there you will be able to select the images you want and download them. If you choose to purchase your entire gallery, you will also receive a flash drive of your digitals.

I just need digitals, do you offer any sessions without prints?

I know everyone loves to have digitals, but I believe strongly that you need to print your photos. Do you know how often clients don’t end up printing their photos when they are given their digitals (I’ve been guilt of this too)? I know how busy life can be, so to ensure you take advantage of the investment you’ve made by booking a session, I provide prints for all of my clients.

Why should I order prints through you?

I offer heirloom quality prints from a professional lab.  They have been checked for proper coloring and will last decades.  There is a huge difference between photos printed from a professional lab and a drugstore printer.  Image coloring, exposure, cropping and clarity can be highly irregular with drugstore or online labs and I cannot guarantee the quality of these sources.

Do you offer any discounts?

I offer a 15% discount to all of my military clients. I also offer a $50 credit towards a session or prints for every referral you send my way!
