Do you include digital files in your packages?
I offer high and low-resolution images for purchase. I do however recommend professional products to display your professionally taken memories as a high-quality lab is noticeable.
What to wear to a session?
I believe clothing is very important for your session. These portraits are going to last a lifetime, so to choose the right clothing, jewelry, hair, makeup is very essential. It does not mean your clothes have to be the last fashion, a lot of time simple, casual, relaxing attire works the best. I know it can be overwhelming, so all my sessions come with pre-session consultation, where I can help you choose the right wardrobe, make a board for you to help you with the color combination when you go to a store, or even offer to come with you to a store. As a photographer, I know what clothing, colors would look best for your session and the type of location. Please consider my recommendations. I did a lot of research for clothing, I can help you navigate to the proper stores, that would not charge arm and leg for clothing. A lot of time clients have the proper clothing at home, all they need to do is put the outfits together, which is where I can help you. Ask me for stores, or links to online stores. Remember though, when you do order online it can take up to a month to receive your order, so plan to purchase ahead of time. I am very creative, and I create headbands for girls, as well I have a nice collection of girls dresses, some boys suspenders, ties, and hats. Preparation for your session can take time, but once you see your images you will believe it was well worth it.
What is your policy for rainy days?
Most clients that book a session want an outside session. If you are scheduled for an outside session and weather does not permit us to shoot we can reschedule to another date near the one that is booked.
How long until we view our online gallery?
Within 1 to 2 weeks after our session, I will send you an email you a link to let you know your gallery is complete and ready for viewing. From the gallery, you will select up to 40 images if we are going to do an in-person ordering consultation, or if you decided to only take digital images, you will select the package you chose.
Once you select your images from in the online gallery, we will schedule a viewing and ordering consultation preferably in the studio, but it can be also scheduled in the convenience of your home. You will be expected to make your order, so whoever has to approve the final purchase should be there. I have samples of products I offer, so you can feel and compare them. In this ordering consultation, you will select your final images, and choose products that work best for you and your family. I do offer payments plans, please do not hesitate to ask me about it, as I really want everyone to have a chance to have a professional photography session and products as it is investments and will last and valued forever. Once full payment is received I will submit your order and within 2- 4 weeks depending on products you chose I will hand deliver them (unless you like to pick your order at the studio).
