Frequently Asked Questions
I'm awkward in pictures. My kids are crazy. We don't know how to pose.
No worries! No matter how awkward you feel in front of the camera or how camera shy your kids might be, I'll take good care of you during your session to create images you'll love. How do I know? Because I'm also awkward in pictures and my kids are also crazy. I feel you.
What if I need to cancel or postpone?
If something comes up and you have to reschedule your session, we can pick another date. However, if you must reschedule a second time, an additional fee of $25 will be added. If you simply must cancel completely, your $100 session deposit is non-refundable.
What if it rains?
Since most of my sessions occur outdoors, weather is a big factor in the success of a shoot. In case of bad weather, I’ll be sure to communicate with you to make a plan. And don’t worry, you won’t be charged a rescheduling fee for weather delays.
Help! I don't know what we should wear!
It's no small feat getting a family dressed for family photos! Take a look at families on my blog for inspiration of what folks have worn in the past. To get you started, look around your home and think about where the photos will be displayed; choose a color scheme to match the decor in that area of your home. Don't be afraid to mix patterns. Usually, two outfits is plenty, but you're welcome to bring as much as you want, and I can offer my guidance on what I think will be best. (NOTE: There is only time for one outfit during a Petite session).
Help! I don't know where we should do our session!
When selecting a location, it’s best to consider places that reflect your personality. Sometimes, the best place to be just might be your own backyard! I prefer to shoot outdoors, but if an indoor space is required, we can use my small, natural light studio or a place with large windows that provide plenty of light. If you’re stumped on where to go, I’ll be happy to offer suggestions.
When will I get my images?
It takes about four weeks for me to have images ready for you. If you're doing a Custom Session, we will meet at my studio to look at images together. If you're doing a Basic or Petite Session, images will be delivered digitally.
