What should I/we wear?
It is best to keep clothing simple, avoiding logos or busy patterns. I always suggest layers/textures. In group photos, color coordinating is always more pleasing to the eye. Wear clothes that represent you and who you are. Feel free to bring a change of clothing.

How long does the photo shoot session last?
The actual session itself usually lasts about 1.5 hours or up to 3 hours for a newborn session.
Wedding Collections range from 4.5hrs, 6.5hrs or 8.5hrs.
How do we book you?
Simply let me know you would like to book a photo shoot session, what dates work best for you and what type/kind of session you are looking for through my contact page or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. For wedding photography please send me your date, venue location and which wedding package best fits your needs and I will send you the wedding contract with more information.
When will I receive my photos?
Approximately 4 weeks after your session (weddings usually 8-12 weeks depending on the time of year), I will have your custom USB/Hard Drive completed, your USB//Hard Drive will usually consist of over a hundred & fifty pictures (usually a lot more for weddings, family, etc.). Pictures will be professionally edited, color corrected (if needed), some offered in black & white and all in high resolution. I will usually post a sneak peek photo of the session on my website and/or Facebook page within a few days of your session. We allows you the freedom to have ALL the pictures from the day of the shoot, with corrections made, to make prints from anywhere.
Are there any additional charges for me to receive my photos?
I charge a one-time flat rate for your pictures which are taken at the location of YOUR choice. No added sitting fees, special effect fees or huge prices for portraits. The price quoted does include the photo shoot, your personalized USB/Hard Drive containing all of your images with permission for you to share and print the photos from anywhere and keep forever.
* Only private/personal photos must not be used for commercial use without permission.
Where will the photos be taken? Do you have a studio?
The location of the photo session is up to you, we currently are in the process of setting up our studio. Ideally I prefer to use natural, available light as I call myself a natural light photographer. I do use an external flash. Once your photo shoot date is booked we will discuss what type of feel you are looking for in your photographs, we can then work together to come up with the perfect location. Newborn photo sessions are almost always held within the comfort of your own home.
Do you only offer the photos on USB or do you offer prints?
We provide both. I do order prints from outside professional printers and vendors, if you are interested in ordering prints we can discuss sizes and prices that work best for you.
I love doing photography for any kind of occasion. If you have an occasion in mind you do not see on my list, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Or if you have any questions about anything you see, please let me know.
What to bring?
For family and/or children photo sessions: outfit changes, a drink, favorite toy, special stuffed animal. Please make sure your little one has been fed and had a nap before the photo session for a more comfortable and positive experience.
