Frequently asked questions
How would you describe your style?
I like to think my images are a mix of candid lifestyle moments and modern portraiture. Bright. Natural. Genuine. Some of my absolute favorite images are the "in between" moments where no one is looking at my camera but rather interacting with each other. Why? Because nothing is more important than capturing the connection and love you share. That’s what I want you to see when you look at your images… that they are filled with love and that they represent your story, just as it is, right in this moment. My website includes three full portrait galleries for you to get a good idea of the final gallery you might receive.
I’m ready to book! What comes next?
I am sooo excited to work with you. The best way to contact me is directly through this site. Simply fill out the contact form (and triple check that your contact info is correct) and I will get back to you. We will chat about your vision for your session, about dates and location and get you scheduled. Once all of that is agreed upon, you will pay a 50% non-refundable retainer fee and sign your portrait contract.
What if my kids won’t cooperate? What if my husband dreads family picture day?
Ok… we know sometimes picture day isn’t at the top of the list for Dad and the kiddos. But, this is going to be fun! And we will do everything we can to make it easy on everyone. Quick.Painless.Low Stress is always the goal. I want this to be just another hour of fun for you and your family. We are capturing natural interactions as well as portraits. We will talk about the things you love… you can tickle and joke and snuggle…. And all of this will help coax natural smiles and true happiness from all of those involved.
Our session just ended and we can’t wait to see our photos! How will I receive them and how long will it take?
Trust me… I know you are excited. I promise, I am just as excited to show them to you. I try to post a preview of your session on my photography Facebook page and/or blog (so be sure to like it!) within 2-3 days. 3-4 weeks following your session you will receive a digital link of your online high resolution gallery and a print release. All of your images can be downloaded and saved directly from your link and reproduced as you please. MPix.com is a great website for prints!
Portrait Deposits and Rescheduling?
A 50% retainer is due at the time of booking. That portrait deposit secures the date and time of your session. The balance is then due on or before the day of your session. Deposits are non-refundable. BUT…I'm a mom and I get it…things happen. Kids get sick, emergencies pop up out of no where. So you can reschedule up to 24 hours before your session and your deposit will transfer to your new session date. If you cancel and do not reschedule your session, your deposit will be forfeited. If weather issues prevent your session from happening, no worries….We will touch base as soon as possible and make the call on rescheduling.
Can I share my photos on social media?
Of course! As a matter of fact, I would love for you to! Just please be sure to credit me in your post.
