FAQ

Pre-Shoot Questions

Q: I want to book a session, how does this work?

At the very bottom of my pricing page you'll see the "Book your session" button. Click that and it will take you to my questionnaire and contract where you can tell me a little about yourself and what you're looking for as well as pick the date for your shoot!

 

After our session you will receive an email with a link to the gallery of your images where you can download, share to social media and buy prints.

Q: How many images do I get?

Every session is different but I usually deliver about 30 images per hour of shooting time.

Q: Can I/my family change outfits during the shoot?

Absolutely! There is no limit on outfit changes. Just be mindful of your session time. It's always recommended you let me know of any outfit changes ahead of time so we can best plan and budget our time together.

Post-Shoot Questions

Q: How long do I have to wait to get the link to my gallery?

Every session requires a little something different in post, so delivery times may vary. That being said you should expect to see the link to your gallery in less than a week. 

Q: I just got the link to my gallery! How many images can I download?

All of them! Every single image is available for you to download right now.

 

The "Headshot Session" comes with 5 edits and every other portrait session comes with 15 edits. 

In your email with the link to your gallery you should have also gotten the link to your retouching questionnaire. Be sure to fill that out so I can retouch your photos to your specifications.

Q: How many images can I have retouched?

In the top right hand corner you should see a heart. Click that, enter your email and you should be able to view and edit your favorites list.

Q: How do I view/edit my "Favorites"?

Pick your favorite 15 for me to edit.jpg

General Questions

 

RAWs are not simply the unedited versions of images. When a photographer uses the word RAW we are referring the very large, specialized file format we use to edit the image in post. RAWs give us the most wiggle room when it comes to editing but we need special software to open the images, which is something most clients do not have.​ 

I do not typically deliver unedited JPGS. Part of the package you are buying when you book with me is my expertise in editing software and my artistic vision. The images that come straight out of my camera are not finished and are not representative of my work.

*If you are worried about keeping a cohesive look for your brand please let me know.

Q: Why don't I get the RAW images?

 

When you book a session with me you are not just booking me for my camera and my time.

 I have been formally educated and trained on both the inner workings of every single piece of equipment I own and use as well as the software I utilize to process and edit.

I have spent years perfecting composition and have spent countless hours learning how to manipulate light and craft every single aspect of my images. 

My weekends are reserved for scouting the best locations, searching for that perfect pocket of light on a hillside.

In my decade behind the camera I have collected a skillset and a vision that I think sets me and my work apart.
