Portrait FAQs

Do you include prints in your session fees?

A.I do not offer printing services, but you can order prints through your online gallery once your gallery is delivered! When you open your online gallery for the first time, it will show you where and how to order prints.

How many photos will I receive from my session?

A.I do not guarantee a specific number, but I do give you an approximation of how many images you can expect to receive. You can find this information above, and also by clicking on the "Detailed List of Wedding Packages, Pricing and Add-ons" for information on wedding collections.

Do I get access to the RAW unedited files? Am I allowed to put my own filters on the images I receive?

A.No. While a major part of my job is to capture special moments, the unseen part of my job is the editing process. Part of the process is getting rid of the photos that are not flattering, etc.

How long do you keep photos in storage?

A.I guarantee my clients that their images are kept in storage for one calendar year from the date of their wedding or session.

Do you have any advice on what to wear for my session?

A.I currently have an outfit/style guide for my couples that have scheduled engagement sessions with me.
As of right now, I do not have one for other types of portrait session (families, maternity, seniors, etc.). While I have every intention to create an outfit guide for each kind of session, I encourage you to check out Pinterest for inspiration!

What do I do if I'm uncomfortable in front of the camera? Do I pose myself?

A.I completely understand being uncomfortable in front of the camera. But part of my job is to help you relax and enjoy the experience. While I may pose you sometimes, I make it a point to interact with you, keep things light-hearted and throw out prompts to spur on authentic moments that showcase exactly who you are!

What if unforeseen circumstances cause a problem for my session?

A.Things like life's circumstances and weather are things we cannot control. So no worries! We can always reschedule and put another date on the calendar. If any kiddos are causing you to run late, just send me a quick text to let me know. If you're running late and I have back-to-back sessions, I'll recommend rescheduling. No matter what, my goal is to relieve any stress and work with you so that your experience is enjoyable and fun!

Do you offer mini sessions?

A.Yes. Mini sessions are offered spontaneously and ever so often, or upon request.

What type of gear do you use?

A.Nikon gear, both bodies and lenses.
Two digital cameras for weddings with a dual-camera harness.
One camera for portraits sessions.
