Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is the session fee and what does it include?
A: The session fee starts at $375 and that includes the photoshoot & professional hair and makeup. Images are sold separately.
Q: Can I bring people to my photoshoot?
A: Yes! 1 extra person is included in your sitting fee automatically. However, if you want 3+ people then some additional costs may apply. Men and boys are welcome at no cost, and will join you in the last 15 mins of your photoshoot. Each additional girl ages 1-6 is $25, girl age 7-13 is $75 and 14+ is $100 extra.
Q: How much do your packages cost?
A: My packages start at $1,200. The price increases with the size of the package.
Q: Do you offer digital images?
A: Absolutely! With each image ordered and printed through us, you get the accompanying image as a high resolution digital file.
Q: Why can’t I just get the digitals?
A: In our experiences from delivering files in the past, the vast majority share them immediately on Facebook, but never get around to printing. When they would come back to me for their next session, sometimes years later, they would often remark to me that they were so busy and never knew what sizes to get, so they never printed anything and “now it’s too late,” either because the USB/disc/files got lost or because they don’t want to print old family photos when they’re coming to me now for new family photos. Couple that with my own experience of losing digital images, I realized that I would be doing my clients a HUGE disservice by only providing digital images that will never make it off of Facebook or the USB. My clients trust me to provide them with images that will last for lifetimes, and that is what my archival printing offers that digital does not.
Q: What if I’m sick or there’s an emergency and I need to reschedule my session?
A: Not to worry. If something comes up, we can reschedule your portrait or Reveal Session one time for no additional charge. After the first rescheduled appointment, there will be a rescheduling fee of $75 for each occurrence.
Q: When will I be able to see my images after the session?
A: Your images will be ready for viewing and ordering about 2 weeks after the date of your session at the reveal session. Once they’re ready or near completion, we will follow up with you about scheduling your reveal session.
Q: All of this sounds great! Now what do I do?
A: Great! Once you decide you want to book, or even if you’re not entirely sure yet but you want more information, we’ll plan a pre-session consultation to answer any questions you might have and to see if our services will be a good fit for you, see our sample products, pricing guide, and product guides, design details, etc. If you decide you want to go ahead and book your next session with us, the non-refundable session fee will be collected to reserve your spot on our calendar. We’ll also be in touch before your session as we prepare for it, so we’ll be available to help in any way we can along the way. I can’t wait to work with you and get to know you better!
