How many photos will I have to choose from in my gallery?
In general you should have 20-50 images to choose from in your gallery. Please remember not all sessions are created equal and sometimes due to circumstances beyond my control, ie cranky kiddos (hey we all have our bad days once in awhile right?) I may not be able to capture "extras". Rest assured you will receive your package minimum and I solemly swear to do my best. My job is to make you look good and I take that job very seriously!
When and how will I receive my final album?
Gallery delivery will be any where between 2-4 weeks after your session date. I will let you know when to expect them at your session. Once I have finished sorting your images they are uploaded to an Online gallery which is password protected. You will receive an email from me with the link, password and how to choose your final images. Once you have confirmed your favorites give me 24 hours to make your final album available for downloading. You may download and share right from your album and best of all Pass.com will archive your album for 10 years free of charge!
I don't think I need an hour session do you offer anything shorter?
Absolutely! 30 Minute Sessions are available for Family and Pet Sessions and from time to time I do offer Mini Sessions. These sessions are done in a shorter time span (typically 15-20 minutes) at a discount. These sessions offer 8 images and are done in blocks of time on a date and location chosen by myself. You may include up to |5| people additional subjects are $10/person. As you can imagine these are highly popular so with that being said sessions are prepaid and refunds will only be given in the event I am able to fill your spot. Mini Sessions will be announced on my Facebook Page & Instagram account.
How do I pay you and what forms of payment do you take?
To initially lock in your session date & time a non-refundable $50 deposit is required. Your remaining balance will be due before or on the date of your session. You are welcome to pay in Cash, Check or Credit Card. Please note that if you choose to pay by credit card there will be a 3% fee added.
We're sick how do I reschedule?
Family emergencies and the sickies happen especially with kiddos. Trust me I know how that is. Of course every situation is different but in general if you must reschedule due to illness or family emergency please let me know via email or text at least 24 hours prior to your session. I can allow only one reschedule date before you will forfeit your session deposit. This will also be true in the event of a cancellation as your deposit is non-refundable.
Dealing with the weather is the hardest part of Natural Light Photography. In the event of rain, storm warnings and/or hazardous road conditions we will discuss a new date/time to reschedule your session or a different location.
What if the weather is bad?
Yes I do! At this time I am only able to do studio sessions at my home for young children and babies. However, lifestyle type sessions at your home, provided you have lots of bright natural sunlight available are absolutely possible. In addition I am always on the hunt for great indoor locations for us big kids so in a nut shell just ask!!
Do you offer indoor sessions?
I sure do and there's no bigger compliment than you wanting more images. Ala-Cart Packages will be emailed to you with your gallery link.
Do you have an Ala-Cart Option to purchase more images?
In natural light photography the most flattering light is a soft diffused light. This is considered the Golden Hour. You will typically get this beautiful light right after sunup and just before sundown. Indoors and some downtown locations allow for more flexibility and sessions can be done outside of those time restrictions. If you're not sure when would be the best timing for you this is a handy quick reference Golden Hour Calculator.
