Frequently Asked Questions
I know that finding the perfect photographer, planning just the right outfits, and hoping that your children behave is STRESSFUL. I hope I can alleviate some of your concerns here, by answering questions that I am most often asked by potential clients. If you have different questions, please please please don’t hesitate to ask me.
Where will my session take place?
I shoot either on location or in my studio. The “on location” options vary depending on what look you are going for. Do you want an urban location? Would you like a wide open field? Do you prefer a barn and long grasses? These are all things we will discuss to pick the perfect location for you.
How long will my session take?
A full session takes about an hour. We may go a little over or a little under, but that is my general rule of thumb. A mini session takes about half that time.
What comes with my session fee?
Your session fee includes edited images (about 25 for a full, 10 for a mini) and a print release. It also comes with my expert printing advice, and I am able to offer you prints from various quality labs.
OMG, what do we wear?
My advice is to look around your home at the colors you used to decorate. Do you have mostly warm colors? Cool colors? What is the overall vibe of your house? Are you modern or more retro? Generally, I would advise you to stick with similar colors to those you use in decorating. For example, my living room is butter yellow, with a robin egg blue rug, neutral sofas, and a bright red coffee table. I wouldn’t want to dress my family in bright pink and expect it to look good on my living room wall. So look at your decorating. Pick a base color or colors and build from there. Use complimentary colors or pops of colors to add visual interest. Textures also add visual interest. Don’t forget to dress from head to toe. Think about head pieces such as hats or headbands, and pay attention to shoes.
That totally made it worse, and now I am freaking out.
Don’t panic. We can go back in forth in email or text and sort out your outfits. I’m here for you. Really.
When will I receive my images?
I try to provide a few facebook sneak peeks within a couple of days. Your final images will be delivered to you 2-3 weeks after our session date.
Do I need to bring anything?
A change of clothes if you want to change, a snack/drink for little ones, a special lovey if they need it. Please make sure little ones are napped and fed prior to our session so that it is a positive experience for all.
Is it EE-vah or Ay-vah?
