Q: How many photos will I receive?
A: For most sessions, you will receive 5 digital images. Longer sessions and weddings, of course, have a larger amount.
Q: Do I choose which photos I receive?
A: YES. I send you a proofing gallery with all photos from your session. You will choose your favorite 5 images. However, if you can’t live without more than 5 images, you can purchase additional images for $5.00 per image.
Q: How will I receive my photos?
A: I email an online gallery through an AP called PASS. This gallery allows you to download your digital images directly to your computer. You can share the gallery with friends, family, upload to Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram. There is also an order option for friends and family to purchase prints directly from your gallery.
Q: How long does it take to receive my photos?
A: My turn around time for most sessions is 2 weeks. However, in the months of August-November, my turn around time can last up to 4 weeks.
Weddings take much longer to work on, and my turn around time is 8-10 weeks.
I will do my best to keep you informed if my times are running longer than normal.
Q: Can I customize my package?
A: Yes. I am open to customizing packages to your specific wants and needs. Just ask me, and we can work something out.
Q: Where is a Newborn session held? and what do you bring?
A: For studio style sessions, I ask you come to my in home studio. I have expensive lights and gear I prefer not to pack up and haul. I will use the bean bag, flokati, prop shots and family shots if you request them. I also provide wraps, headbands, rompers and some outfits. If you would like a more lifestyle session in your home/nursery, I can come to you, but I do not pack a lot of props or gear. This style shoot is more candid and unposed.
Q: Do you travel? and how far?
A: Yes, I love to travel to new places. I will go just about anywhere. a $50.00 travel fee is added when I travel within 30 miles outside of Jefferson City.
Q: Can I add filters to my received photos when posting to social media?
A: NO. I ask that in respect to me and my work that you do not alter your images in any way. This includes, Filters, B&W, Crop, etc. If for some reason you would like your photos in a different edit, I ask that you contact me personally and I will do so for you. Altering my photos will result in possible legal action.
Q: When is payment due?
A: Payment for single sessions and packages are due at the time of the first session. If you need a payment option, please let me know.
Wedding payments are detailed in my contract.
Q: What is a ‘Fresh 48’?
A: Fresh 48 is a term used to describe photos taken of your baby in the first 48 hours. You can just call me when you are ready for me to take photos. No prop, and very little posing. This is meant to capture the true moment of your new addition.
Q: Are Siblings and Parents included in the newborn and milestone sessions?
A: I don’t mind taking family, parent and sibling shots during the milestone sessions. However, the package and session are primarily for the baby. This is why all my packages come with a separate ‘Family” session. I ask you to give me notice before your session if you would like some family shots.
Thank you for visiting my website. If you have any other questions that I did not acknowledge, please email me. I would love to set up a coffee date to discuss your ideal session.
