Frequently Asked Questions
How would you describe your style?
I’d say vibrant & light with a healthy mix of candid moments and thoughtful poses. While I do pose my clients, I do so in a way that doesn’t feel forced or non-genuine. As for my editing techniques, I love bright and well-lit photographs full of color. I’m also a sucker for a contrasted black and white that’ll make you do a double take!
How do I book with you?
That’s easy! All you need to do is call me up or shoot me an email and let me know which dates work for you. My schedule tends to fill up quickly, so the sooner you get hold of me, the more likely it is that we can schedule on your preferred date. Once you’ve selected a date, I require a 50% booking fee, that locks in your date!
How do payments work?
I prefer EFT, but do also take cash. I require a 50% booking fee to secure your session date and then the remaining 50% of the payment no later than two weeks before your session.
Do you offer payment plans?
I do! I understand that photographs are an investment and paying in one lump sum isn’t always ideal. My payment plans are most popular with my milestone package, but I will offer them for all my sessions. I prefer a weekly, monthly or quarterly payment plan, but we can work together to devise a plan that works perfectly for you.
What should I wear to my session?
Ultimately, what you wear depends on what you’re most comfortable in. If you are unsure about what’s most flattering or what will go best with your location setting, don’t hesitate to reach out and connect. I have lots of ideas!
Do I have control over what images you share?
Of course. No matter what session I’m photographing, I will always make sure that you have a say in whether or not I post to social media, please communicate this to me in advance.
Will you come to my home?
Definitely! While most of my sessions take place on-location, we can always take photographs at your house. This option is particularly popular with newborn photos, pet portraits and sometimes family sessions. Do note that I prefer to photograph in a room that’s extremely well lit with natural light.
How far in advance should I schedule my session?
This, of course, depends on the session type. For example, I think some of the best maternity photos are taken between the seven and eight month mark. Newborn photos should be taken within the first two weeks of your child’s birth and engagement session photos should be taken with enough time to get your photos back so that save-the-dates and/or invitations are sent out in a timely matter. Other than that, when you book is up to you!
How long does it take for me to get my proofs?
The waiting game is never any fun. For that reason, I work quickly to get your proofs to you. For larger events where lots of pictures are taken including weddings or corporate events this can take up to two months. For smaller sessions, I typically have proofs to you within four weeks.
What happens if it rains or someone gets sick?
I understand that people get sick and that the weather misbehaves, so I always plan in advance. If you, or someone in your crew, gets sick, we can reschedule for another date. The same is true for rainy days or non-ideal weather.
Do you provide mini-sessions?
At this time, I have a few mini-sessions in the works, but they have not been formally announced. Stay tuned!
What kinds of products do you offer?
I offer a whole slew of prints and products, not limited to gift and wall prints, gallery wraps, fabric and leather bound albums, invitations, cards and more. Check out the pricing pages in this guide for more information.
