How Long Does the Session Typically Take?
My timeframes are appropriate for most photo sessions and I tend to finish up earlier because I am able to shoot quickly. I suggest blocking out 3 hours for your shoot, but don’t be surprised if we finish up half an hour early. For my standard portrait and couple sessions, I say about 1 hour per outfit. Be mindful of how long it takes to change into different outfits and travel between locations.
Why do I have to Pay a DEposit?
The purpose of the deposit is to lock in your date and time. If you cancel last minute, I most likely would have been able to book someone else during that period. I do not secure your date until the deposit has been paid, making your desired time slot up available for others. Nothing is booked until the deposit has been paid.
When do I pay the Remainder? Can i pay all at once?
The remainder of your session and travel fee is due immediately following your shoot before we both depart. No images will be delivered until final payment is made. The way my booking system is set up is in two increments: deposit and final payment. You are free to pay everything at once, before the shoot.
What If I don’t want My Images used Posted on Social Media?
Please make it clear to me in your initial contact email if this is the case and let me know the reason. The sole way I market my photography services (and how you found me) is the internet and I rely on sharing my photography to bring in customers. Therefore, I do have a fee if this is something you want waved.
What is the Travel Fee?
Florida doesn't have affordable public transit and I must bring a large bag with equipment, to ensure safety I travel by car. Things are pretty spread out around here, so I only charge for the time and the gas expenses.
What Happens if it Rains?
If the weather is crazy/act of god/i am sick/etc, we will put your deposit toward a re-schedule. But, if you simply don’t show up to the session, the deposit will not be refunded. If you have booked a portrait, or sweetheart session (this does not include elopements or weddings) and need to re-schedule your session, your deposit can be put toward a re-schedule as long as I am notified within 14 days of your session. However, if you need to cancel and do not want to re-schedule, your deposit is not refunded. Sorry!
Can a Friend come and Cheer me On?
We love a cheerful companion. Yes, bring a friend, parent, spouse! Whoever can make you laugh and whatever will make you feel more comfortable.
How and When Will I receive my Files?
You will receive the edited images within 2 weeks of your session. You will receive all of the files via wetransfer or pixieset, which is an easy and free email service. You then can send them to print, forward to your friends and family, and post online! Download links do expire after a few weeks, so be sure to download your images as soon as possible! Make sure to save and backup your images. I do always keep all of your images after I deliver them.
Do I get to select the Images?
No, part of my job is making the image selects and choosing the most flattering photographs. the images I do not deliver are either repeats, blurry or out of focus, shots of you blinking or mid-sentence speaking. I have no reason to withhold any images if there are additional ones I think you would enjoy! I am on your side.
