FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
before your session or event
HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE YOUR STYLE? WHAT SETS YOU APART FROM OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS?
My style of photography is simple and pure. I strive to capture your beauty and love in the most natural setting as possible. What sets me apart from others is the bond I have with my clients. I feel connecting not only with you but with your children is extremely important in capturing their genuine everyday laughs.
I shoot everything from seniors, weddings, large events, boudoir sessions, engagement proposals, sports teams and families. I will turn away any type of requests for nude photography.
HOW DO I BOOK YOU FOR MY SESSION OR EVENT?
To schedule your appointment I will need the session date and the amount of people in your group. There will be certain occasions where a deposit is required.
AT YOUR SESSION OR EVENT
WHAT GEAR DO YOU WORK WITH?
I work with Nikon D800 dSLR cameras & professional quality lenses for any & all lighting situations I might encounter. I edit with Adobe Photoshop & Bridge.
WHAT HAPPENS IF MY SESSION ENCOUNTERS POOR WEATHER?
In the event that Mother Nature roars her ugly head, on your scheduled date I will do everything I can to reschedule your shoot on a day which is mutually available for us both.
AFTER YOUR SESSION OR EVENT
HOW LONG SHOULD I EXPECT YOUR TURNAROUND TIME TO BE FOR EDITING?
After your session has been captured, your images with then be edited & uploaded to an online gallery within two weeks. For weddings, please allow up to two months for me to work my magic!
WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON’T LOVE MY IMAGES?
Please approach your session with realistic expectations; you will always be your own worst critic! I will provide you with tips & suggestions for a successful photography session prior to our time together. If, after following my guidelines, you are unhappy with your images, I will gladly reschedule another session for you. Unfortunately there is no refunds, so please prompt your children for a successful session, schedule when you can anticipate that they are upbeat & happy, and come prepared to shoot!
