FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHEN SHOULD I HAVE MY PHOTOS TAKEN?
I always do portraits during the 1-2 hours before sunset, as I find it’s the best time for lighting! These times vary depending on the time of year, and you’ll be given a specific time when you request a booking.
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! In the past I’ve had more success with just one outfit.
WHAT IS INCLUDED WITH EACH SESSION?
You will receive all fully edited photos via an online gallery! The amount of photos you receive will depend upon the package you select.
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 or Facebook.

The guaranteed image count is merely a minimum number you will receive from this session.) Typically 1.5 hours of shooting time.
