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 and half 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.
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! I recommend sticking with one outfit that you really like, that you're comfortable in, and that won't go out of style in the coming years.
WHAT IS INCLUDED WITH EACH SESSION?
You will receive all fully edited photos via a Google Drive! 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. There will be a lot!
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 Album 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.
Each session includes fully edited images within 2-3 weeks maximum of your shoot. Typical turn around time is 1-2 weeks.
Graduation, Senior, & Other Portrait Sessions. $100 for 1.5 to 2 hours of photography time. This will fit in about 300-400 shots, and you'll be sent all photos that aren't test shots, blurry, or blinking (number will vary).
Individual Portraits. $50 for an hour of photography time. This will fit about 100 or more shots, and you'll be sent all photos that aren't test shots, blurry, or blinking (number will vary).
Group Portraits. $35 per person for an hour and 15 minutes of photography time. This will fit about 100+ shots and you'll be sent all photos that aren't test shots, blurry, or blinking (number will vary). (Up to 5 people.)
