Frequently Asked Questions

How long is a portrait shoot?

1 – 2 hours.


Do you shoot exclusively on location?

Yes. Depending on the shoot, I will come to your home or meet you and your party at a park, open space trail-head, or another location.


What is the cost for a portrait shoot?

I charge a simple flat fee (see Prices) that includes the photo session, the full set of high res digital files, and 4 prints (4×6, 5×7, or 8×10).


I ask for a non-refundable $100 deposit to book your photo shoot. Check or cash is preferred. If you prefer to pay via Paypal, I charge an extra 3% to cover the processing charge.


What should I/we wear for our shoot?

Above all, DON’T MATCH. Instead, wear clothing you’re comfortable in, and clothing you feel you look your best in. However, if we’re doing a maternity shoot, then form-fitting shirts, tank tops, etc. would be a better idea. For boudoir shoots, bring a few changes of your favorite lingerie. For personal or professional portraits, wear whatever makes you feel your best.


How long until we receive our images?

Usually within 2 weeks, but during the busy season (summer and fall) it may be a little longer.


How many images are in a full set?

You will receive 80 – 100 high resolution digital files from your photo shoot that are color-corrected and print ready.


What can I do with my images after I receive them?

You will be able to use your images to make prints and canvases, order albums, share with family/friends or post on social media.
