Frequently Asked Questions
- How many photos do I receive?
It depends on how many photos are taken during the session. Typically, for portrait/family sessions I deliver anywhere from 15-35 edited photos. For events or weddings it is more. Either way I don't necessarily cap myself at a certain limit. I will deliver all photos I think are great.
- May I have the original files?
No. Unfortunately, I do not deliver original files to my clients. The images are edited with my unique style and it is the way I'd like my photographs to be displayed across all mediums.
- When will I receive my photos after the session?
You can expect the photos to be delivered within 1-2 weeks depending on the type of session. (Portraits and blogger sessions are generally faster than family, wedding, or event sessions due to more editing).
- How do you deliver the files?
You can view the photos from your session in a personal online gallery from which you can download the files at original resolution onto your computer. I find this is the best method for my clients and myself. The link to the online gallery is sent via email.
- Can the session be at more than one location?
Yes, I can accommodate more than one location. However, travel fees may apply.
- Do you print as well?
No. I do not offer printing services but I can recommend professional printing services I've personally used. However, should you intend to print the photos from our session, I ask that you let me know ahead of time so that I may deliver the files in the proper resolution.
- What if I have a particular budget but am still interested booking a session?
If you are really interested in booking a session with me but have a budget you're working with, please don't hesitate to fill out the contact form with your inquiry. I ask that you submit as many details as possible (including your budget) as this will help me decide if I can accommodate you. This is based on a case by case scenario - please be mindful of my rates and understand a lot of work goes into making the photographs and editing.
- Can the photos we take be used for a brand promotion?
No. The photographs delivered to you are intended solely for personal use. This includes social media, personal website/blog, email, etc. Should you need the photos for commercial use, there is to be a separate negotiation.
- Is there a deposit to book a session?
Yes. I charge a deposit of 30% of total fee in advance. This secures your session date. If you cancel your session within 24 hours of the scheduled date and time, the deposit is non-refundable. A 72 hour notice is the minimum time frame for cancellation where the deposit is 100% refundable. Should there be any cancellations due to an emergency the deposit will be 100% refunded as well. Deposit is deducted from total fee.
- Will I receive an invoice for the session?
Yes. Once the date, location, and details are set for the session I create an estimate with that information and all fees associated with the shoot. Estimate is sent via email. Upon delivery of the estimate, the 30% deposit becomes due. Once deposit is paid, I send a final invoice with remaining balance due the date of the session. (Invoices may also be paid in advance).
