Frequently Asked Questions

How long is the photo shoot?

This all depends on the session needed but generally, sessions last 30 min - 2hours.  

How many photos do I get?

Again, this all depends on the session, a half hour session usually yields 10-15 images and a 2 hour session usually yields around 40-60 images. 
Weddings can be difficult to gauge and it all depends on your wedding.  Please contact me or more details. 

What should I wear?

This is a very difficult question to answer.  Follow your own style.  However, neutrals, solid colors and simple prints will photograph well.  If you are a family or couple wanting to match, you don't necessarily have to wear the same color, but keeping the colors in the same tone will help.  See this Pintrest Board for ideas.  The only thing I really suggest avoiding is wearing white (unless you are a bride).  Normally an eye will land on the brightest part of an image.  We want that focus on your eyes and smile, and not your shirt.  Also, steer clear of the sheer materials or the loosely knitted material as whatever is underneath (or not) will show up in the photo even though it may not be visible normally.

Why a print credit when I am getting the digital images?

Your retainer fee is converted into a print credit to use to help purchase your images. Whether you prefer digital files, or prints for Grandma, Christmas Cards, a large Canvas, or an Album to showcase it all.  It is your choice as to how you spend the credit.  No hard sales sessions.  Easy Peasy.

Do you have payment plans?

Absolutely.  I can break the session price up in multiple payments to make it easy on you.  I take cash, check, Paypal, and major credit cards. I do, however, need to secure the retainer (non-refundable) to secure your date of your shoot.

Where do we do our photo shoot?

We have lots to choose from.  On location or in studio.  Easy has its benefits and different style.  I have a list of locations we can do or you can find a specific location of your choosing.    I have used, kitchens, living rooms, and basements before.  We can go outside to the great outdoors or find a special location to you.  Or for clean and timeless images, my studio makes a great location.
