Frequently Asked Questions
What if my kids don’t cooperate?
No problemo. I am a mother and I get it. Everyone is not 100% chipper all of the time and that is okay. We will work through it and you will have some great photographs, pinky promise.
What if the weather is bad?
If the weather does not cooperate we will reschedule, usually within 6 weeks.
Can you help me with my hair and make-up?
Yes! Make-up and hair style is available for an additional $150.
What if I don’t like getting my photo taken?
I hear you. I have a cheeseball smile according to my family. Once I get comfortable with my photographer the smile becomes more natural. I will make sure you are as comfortable as possible in front of the camera and after some time you will not even notice I am there.
How far in advance should I book my session?
Ideally 3 or more weeks out. Before the photoshoot we will plan your outfits and determine the location(s). If there is time in the schedule I have done sessions that were booked one week in advance.

DON’T: Wear bright/ neon colors

Do you offer professional retouching?
Every photograph is professionally retouched unless requested otherwise. I keep retouching to a minimum because I want you to look like yourself. Anything impermanent is subject to retouching, but we can have a conversation about scars, zits, or anything you are concerned about.
When do I get to see my photographs?
Within one week or less your photograph proofs will be delivered to you in a password-protected photo gallery.
What time of day is best to book my session?
It depends on the location, but the best time of day is typically right before sunset. It makes for the perfect lighting and a beautiful background. If this time doesn’t work for you, please let me know and we can work something out.
