Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What are your packages? Is there a place to view them?

A: You may view all packages, prices, and availability here.

Q: Do you travel for photography sessions?

A: Yes I do travel. A travelling fee will be added if sessions are beyond Statesboro (Bulloch County), Georgia. Traveling to and from sessions are available on the dates and times I have available. Please contact me for questions about rates and availability.

Q: What payment method do you accept?

A: Cash, PayPal, Debit and Credit cards

Q; Do I have to pay a deposit once I book?

A: Yes, a deposit is required to book. You may also pay the full amount as well.

Q: When should I book a maternity session or a child session?

A: Maternity photos are normally ideal around 30 weeks. I have often found that many of my clients are more comfortable and have a nice size belly around this time :). For children's portraits, the most ideal time is newborn (up to 10 days of birth) this makes it easy to fold and put them in adorable poses. Six to seven months for babies. This time is ideal because they are able to sit on their own and show much of their personality. Toddler sessions for one year old portraits (birthday portraits) and any time after that. For all other ages, Toddler (4-5 years), Tween (8 -10), Junior high, high school, and college.

These are just suggestions, and I happily work with any age. But please adhere to the ages of babies for the best portraits. 

Q: I want to book a family session with my family, what should we wear?

A: Coordinate, coordinate, coordinate!! I can not stress this enough. Coordinating colors always look best in photographs.Coordination does not necessarily mean the same attire, but keep the colors the same.

Q:I have a large family, is there additional for this cost?

A: Because I understand that family size varies from family to family, I do not put a cap on immediate family such as parents and children. But, there is an additional fee for extended family. Please feel free to email me, and we can discuss additional rates. 

Q: Do you suggest makeup for photo sessions?

A: Yes I do! And of course this is totally optional. Makeup assists in the post editing process. Makeup also enhances your greatest features and decreases shine and blemishes. A professional makeup artist can cater to your personal needs and assist you in becoming photo ready.

 

Q: Do you assist with posing?

A:Yes, but, with children, I allow them to be themselves. Some children are great at posing, and others love to do their own thing.For children, have your cell phone handy with their favorite tune.You may also bring their favorite toy as well. I like to make their session as stress-free as possible. If you book a single session, you are free to bring your playlist of music. I want my clients comfortable, my space is very inviting!

Q: What if I need to cancel/reschedule my session?

A: A 48 hour notice is appreciated. If you need to reschedule, you must contact me with a new date within 30 days of the original session date.You may contact me here or you may reschedule your session by going to the link in your email confirming your session. 

Q: How long will my session take?

A: Session times are dependent on the package you choose for your session. Most sessions last between 45 minutes to an hour and a half.

Q: Do you shoot in studio or outdoor?

A: I shoot both! Studio sessions can be done anytime during business hours. But, there is a specific time for shooting outdoor pictures. Outdoor pictures should be done before 10am and after 4:30 pm. 

Q:I'd like a creative session, how do I convey this to you?

A: I love creative sessions. If you have pictures or would like to discuss ideas, please feel free to email me.

Q:What's the process after pictures are taken?

A: All raw (unedited) pictures will be emailed to you after your session for you to review. For mini sessions, expect 20 - 25 unedited images and all sessions can expect up to 50 images to review. Clients will then choose their favorite images they would like edited. Clients will receive an email once images are complete.

Q: How are images delivered?

A: Let's face it, we live in a digital world. Cds are almost nonexistent, and to keep up with the trend I deliver images through digital download. These images are high resolution and can be downloaded up to three times. I strongly encourage clients to save digital images to their computers or a usb drive.

Q:I love my digital images, how can I purchase prints?

A:A shopping cart icon is located by each image in your personal gallery. Simply select your image and the size you'd like to order. That's it!

Q: Do you shoot weddings?

A: I am no longer accepting wedding clients. After ten years of wedding photography I have happily retired :)
