Q. What does a typical session look like?
A. Before we meet for the session we will talk over the phone or email to decide just what you are looking for. Don't know? That's no problem at all, I can help guide you through the process. We will pick a place to meet depending on your taste and preview a couple of options for background and lighting. Typically one location will take about an hour and we will get a variety of different setups at that location. Afterward I aim for a one week turnaround to deliver your images. This includes touch-ups and color correction.
Q. What should I wear?
A. That entirely depends on the location and style we choose. During the session planning I will guide you through the best options for wardrobe selection.
Q. I have a bunch of ideas that I saw on Pinterest or Facebook, can I get something like this?
A. Absolutely! I'll ask that you share your reference images during our planning process and we will develop a game plan to match your selected style.
Q. Do I order prints through you?
A. Most of my packages include the session fee and delivery of edited photos electronically, I generally find that clients value the digital copies most and like to pick their own printing service on their own timeline. I certainly can create a package of prints/canvas/acrylic to suit your needs as well, I only use professional printing services which are a bit more expensive than consumer printing but come in a higher quality in both initial appearance as well as longevity.
Q. Can I use the pictures on Facebook, Instagram, etc.?
A. Certainly! Social media is how we connect with our friends, family and the world. I will deliver two sets of images, one high resolution for printing and one sized for web use. Images for social media use will have my logo (as seen up top) usually in one of the lower corners of the image.
Q. What does "One Location" mean?
A. The easiest way to describe this is if we have to travel by car that is a second location. At one location we will be moving around quite a bit on foot to get a good variety of different looks.
Q. Will you set up the poses?
A. Absolutely! We will work together to set up a variety of groups and poses, I will guide you the whole way to make sure you look your best. We will make sure to get the safe classical poses and also a nice collection of candid shots as well as some spontaneous captures as well, these are the most fun and usually the most memorable!
