Q// How do I book a session with you?
Find a spot on my schedule, and pay your deposit. Boom, booked.
Q// I think I see a date that might work. Can you hold it for me while I double check some things?
No. Your deposit will hold your date once you've scheduled your session. Dates aren't held without deposit.
Q// How do I prep for my session?
I will send you a Prep Guide that explains tips on location, vibe, hair, makeup, wardrobe, what to do with your hands, etc.
Q// What are the best times and days to shoot?
For outdoor sessions, the best time to shoot is about an hour or so before dusk in a place where you can eventually see the sunset. If the weather is overcast, the best time of day is anytime. Direct sunlight outdoors is too bright and too harsh, causes too many under eye shadows and don't get me started on the sweat......it just makes for unflattering photos so trust your photographer when she tells you that early evening light is the better way to go.
For in-home or indoor workspaces however, we wont be in that harsh light so the earlier the better! The best time to shoot inside is during the day, between 11am-2pm when the sun is nice and high and hopefully lighting up your entire home or workspace for the best natural light images.
Q// Where will we be shooting?
Anywhere cool. Not your local park though.
Q// What is your travel fee?
My travel fee is based on how many tanks of gas I’ll need to get to you and get back home.
Q// If I want to go to a location for my session that requires a parking fee, admission ticket, boat ride, plane ticket, overnight stay, etc does your base rate include that?
No, out of the ordinary additional payments needed to fulfill your photography dreams are not already included in my base rate. So for example if you want me to meet you at ABC Botanical Gardens and the ticket fee is $20 you would be responsible for purchasing my ticket. If you want me to meet you anywhere where parking would be more than $5, you would be responsible for covering my parking. If you live in New York but you want to shoot in New Mexico, you would be responsible for covering my flight and hotel accommodations, etc.
Q// I hate my *insert body part*.....
Stop right there. There's no body shaming allowed during my sessions. This is a time for you to show the world how bomb you are. You are amazing. They cant see that if you're worried about whatever it is that no one would notice had you not pointed it out. Worry will show all over your face, so don't. Love yourself, down a glass of champs, play up your most loved features and assets, get over it and lets w.e.r.k. :)
Q// What if I have to reschedule my session?
Sessions can only be rescheduled one time non-weather related with the same deposit and must also be rescheduled within 2 months of the original date. And based on availability. Anything outside of those parameters will require a new deposit.
Q// Can you hold off on posting any of my images until they've been published to maintain exclusivity?
We can chat about that.
Q// Do we get the copyrights to the images taken?
You will receive a print release that allows you to share, and print your images. Copyrights are not available for purchase.
Q// Can we have the .RAW, unedited images? Can we have all the images?
You will receive the BEST images taken and they will be gloriously edited by me. Un-edited images are not included in my packages. If you would like to purchase un-edited .JPGs for personal use, they can be purchased at an additional fee. And .RAW photos are not available for purchase ever.
Q// How many edited images can we expect to receive from my session?
There is no certain amount or limitation on how many edited images you will receive because all sessions vary based on what was shot. Between 30 and 200 is as approximate as I can get for ya. Whatever we shoot, rest assured you will receive more than enough images.
Q// How long will it take to receive my images?
Note: Rates subject to change without notice.
