Q: What is the best time of the day for photos?
A: The best time of the day for light is usually within a couple hours of sunrise and sunset. That being said, the best time is when your children are happiest. If they will be miserable for a sunset session then let's do it earlier!
Q: What should we wear?
A: Check out my "what to wear" guide located here (coming soon)
Q: What if my toddler won't listen?
A: That is OK! Really, I promise it is OK. I have a 2.5 year old and an 8 month old. I don't expect my 8 month old to listen, obviously, but my 2.5 year old has some listening skills at least. But guess what, during our family photo session in September, he had a mind of his own, and our photographer got AMAZING photos. How could that be? Well we played lots of games and made it fun. Which is exactly what I do with my clients who have young kids. We will explore our location, play different games, and get your kids smiling and laughing. I promise you will get amazing family photos. All you have to do is show up and leave the rest to me!
Q: I am afraid I won't look good in my photos, I have too much baby weight I'm still carrying around.
A: I want you to be comfortable in your skin. I will pose and angle you in the most flattering way. I will give you little reminders throughout the session on the most flattering positions. I want you to relax and trust the process, you will look great!
Q: How long does a photoshoot last?
A: A full portrait session last anywhere from 1-2 hours depending on which package you book. If you book the larger portrait package I allow for extra time in case we want to do more then one location.
Q: How long will it take to get my photos?
A: I like to tell my clients two weeks in case we are in busy session, but you will likely have your photos before the two week deadline.
Q: How do you deliver photos?
A: You will receive an online gallery where you will be able to download your photos directly to your computer, place orders for products, and share your photos with family and friends.
Q: I see my package comes with a print credit, what can I use the credit on?
A: That's a great one! I include a print credit in my packages because I want you to display your photos. I use professional print labs for my products. You can use the credit on prints, canvases, metal prints, Christmas or graduation cards, and even Christmas ornaments.
Q: Do you offer a referral bonus?
A: YES YES YES! I want your referrals! The biggest compliment I can receive, is if you refer your friends. To say thank you I offer a free 8x10 canvas or framed print from your session for each referral you send my way.
Q: What if I book with you every year, do you offer a discount?
A: I sure do. Repeat business is right up there with referrals on compliments to me. So I offer 10% off if you book within a year of your last photoshoot.
