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.
