Why do you need professional portraits?
Because you want your kids and grandkids and great-grandkids to have beautiful photos of you, the way you do of some of your oldest family. Family heirloom portraiture is sometimes the only physical thing to remind us of the people that we no longer have with us. Whether it is an event, a gift, or for your home's decor, having these memories is irreplaceable.
What kind of investment am I looking at?
Pricing for your session can depend on the type of session and location. The prices can range from $150 to $325 for family and senior sessions. Weddings will be custom according to the needs and wants of the bride and groom. I normally do not charge for travel expenses, but anything over 60 miles may result in a small travel fee.
What form of payment do you accept?
Cash, Check, Venmo, Paypal & Credit Cards – Processing fees and Sales Tax Apply.
When is payment due?
A deposit for your session is due at time of booking, with the rest due at the session. Payment for print orders is due at time of order. Payment plans are available.
How soon after our session will our images be available?
Depending on the season and how busy my schedule is, photos are usually ready between 1 and 3 weeks. They are then uploaded to my site, and you'll be sent a link to view, download and print.
How do I order prints?
Prints can be ordered through my website or through another vendor of your choice after they are downloaded.
What happens if it rains on the day of my outdoor session?
In the event of rain during a scheduled outdoor session we will either utilize an indoor area or reschedule for a different date.
Where do the portrait sessions take place?
I have great locations that I’ve scouted out and are perfect for photo sessions. For family and children shoots, you can choose between urban, country or anything in between. Tell me your ideas. I’m always open to new locations. If you need ideas, ask me. Please book your session at least 3-4 weeks in advance to allow for session availability. Also, locations must be wheelchair accessible.
How long does a typical session last?
Typically sessions last between 1-3 hours depending on the type of session you book and if we are shooting at one or more locations. Shorter sessions are sometimes better for different types of families. In my experience, small kids do better with short sessions. We can get a LOT of great shots in there though!
Will you post my images online?
I only post images online that are approved by my clients. If you don't want me to post, I won't.
