What are your prices?
A.I offer a variety of packages, including mini-sessions and full sessions with files. Please contact me for more information.
What's included in your sessions?
A.All sessions include the following:
-time and talent of the photographer
-an online gallery to browse and select your images
-hand retouching of all images in your gallery
-travel within 20 miles of 92694
Sessions are for up to 5 people in an immediate family unit. Please contact me for a custom quote on larger group sessions.
How many photos do I get?
A.The number of photos presented depends on the length of the session and the number of people being photographed. As a general rule of thumb, I deliver approximately 40 photos for a mini-session and 100 photos for a full session.
Do you offer extended family sessions (i.e, grandparents, cousins, etc?)
A.Absolutely! My normal session fees are for up to 5 people, but I offer custom sessions for extended family. Please inquire for an exact quote.
Can I bring my dog?
A.Please do! I am an animal lover and self-proclaimed dog whisperer. However, some locations do not allow pets. Please contact me to discuss some dog-friendly shooting locations.
What if my kids misbehave, act crazy or cry?
A.As a mom, I understand how stressful a portrait session can be. I also know that the energy or stress that parents bring to the session can make a huge difference on our kids' behavior. I ask that parents let me take the reins with wrangling the kiddos and creating the smiles. Relax and let me do my thing ;)
Do I have to order prints through you?
A.I do offer professional-quality prints, but also offer high-resolution files to all of my clients. I am happy to fulfill print orders for you or direct you to a quality consumer photo lab.
What should we wear?
A.Above all else, wear something that you feel comfortable in. I generally recommend that families coordinate tones and colors to create a pleasing color palette for their images. Matching outfits are not required (and in my opinion should be avoided.) If you are struggling with what to wear, I recommend choosing an outfit for the most difficult person to dress first, then coordinating the other outfits around that color palette.
