FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHEN SHOULD I HAVE MY PHOTOS TAKEN?
I always do portraits during the "Golden Hour." The Golden Hour is the best time for lighting, and is about an hour before sunset or after sunrise. These numeric times vary depending on the time of year!
Location is flexible! I recommend choosing a location that is significant to you, that has potential for different shots, or that you feel very comfortable in. If you're unsure, I always have a few recommendations. (For UVA Graduation photos, I prefer the Lawn of course.)
WHAT SHOULD I BRING WITH ME?
You can bring whatever you'd like! For graduation portraits I take a variety of shots; we'll get you with your cap and gown, just with your cap, and without either. Feel free to bring any props that represent your university experience (Cheer or Dance Poms, Athletic Equipment, etc.).
Feel free to bring a second outfit; just be aware that it will be cutting into your shooting time!
WHAT IS INCLUDED WITH EACH SESSION?
You will receive all fully edited photos via an online gallery! I do not place a limit on the number of images edited and sent, so you will receive all of your photos that aren't test shots, blurry, or blinking.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS?
I try to make turn-around time very quick, so unless it is an exam season, you should get them within a week or two. I post some favorites to my Instagram or Facebook Page so you will get a sneak peek of your photos within a few days.
WHAT IS YOUR POLICY ON SHARING PICTURES ONLINE?
I love when your images are shared with friends and family! Feel free to send photos, print them out, or post them on social media.
CREDIT & EDITING
I do ask that the images are not edited or altered, and that there is a link for photo credit to my website, Facebook, or Instagram.
- Varies Seasonally -
Each session includes fully edited images within 2 weeks of your shoot. Typical turn around time is 1-2 weeks.
GRADUATION & SENIOR PORTRAIT PACKAGE - *$250.
One location, approximately 20 images delivered. (I try not to cap the number of images for these sessions. If there are many more great shots from your session I will include them! The approximate image count is merely an estimate of the minimum you will receive from this session.) Typically 1 hour of shooting time.
GROUP PORTRAIT PACKAGE - *$90/PERSON.
Minimum of 3 people. One location, minimum of 20 images delivered. Group members can also choose to take some individual shots. How you want to allocate your time between group shots and individual shots is up to you and your group! Typically, people who select this package for graduation portraits have gotten approximately 15-20 different group shots and approximately 8 individual shots each. Typically 1 hour of shooting time.
LINKED IN HEADSHOTS - $25.
One location, minimum of 3 images delivered. I do not cap the number of images, as I send you all of your best photos (number will vary), so there is no maximum. Shooting length will continue until you are happy with the images!
