Do you travel?
Yes, I do! Located in Allen, Tx servicing the surrounding areas. Please be sure to double check if you are unsure if the town you live in will require the travel fee or just contact me.
Where do you take your photos at and what time?
I am an on-location photographer, so I have many beautiful locations within allen/plano area! I do have Studio Sessions available. You must mention at the time of booking, if you would like a studio session. To get the ultimate best lighting for your session I shoot 1-2 Hours before sunset. However for studio I shoot typically in the morning/mid Day.
How far in advance should I schedule a session?
Depending on the season, I typically book close to one to two-three months out. I suggest planning ahead! Occasionally I will have an opening or a canceled session, contact me as soon as possible to inquire, to confirm, or ask about a specific date you have in mind!
How do I schedule a session?
You can begin your scheduling process by contacting me. Please fill out the contact form completely and I will respond back within a timely manner.
Is there anything I should know before scheduling a session?
Before scheduling your session it is important that you have taken time to look through my website. By looking through my recent sessions on my blog or Facebook, you can get a feel for my photography style. My style consists of natural, casual moments, captured in a bright and playful way! It’s also important to have an understanding of my session pricing.
Can you hold my date without a deposit?
Unfortunately, no. I require a non-refundable retainer fee to reserve your date. If your retainer fee is not paid within 48 hours of booking your session, I will cancel the invoice and the date we discussed will no longer be available to you.
When is the remaining amount for my session due?
I do have a few options for this. The remaining amount can be due one week before your session via an electronic invoice or you can pay with cash the day of your session. Your session must be paid for before any picture taking will begin.
Will we own the copyrights to the images from our session?
No. I retain the copyright to all images that I take however, you will receive a personal print release to use the images for personal printing, and social media.
What should I expect during my session?
At the start of your session I will take a moment to get to know everyone. I will give direction during your time, but mostly I want you to interact with each other just as you would if I were not 20 feet away from you. Those are the moments you’ll remember most years from now!
What if the weather is horrible?
If the weather takes a turn for the worst (rain, wind, snow) then we will reschedule on the next available date.
Who should I bring?
Please bring only the person(s) who will be photographed in your session. Extra people are distractions, especially for little ones. With children I prefer to work one-on-one. I will often ask that the parents sit back and relax so I can have your child’s full attention. It’s much easier for them to give me their best natural smile when I’m being silly than when mom and dad are begging (or sometimes threatening!) at the same time behind me. I’m a pretty goofy person so with a little bit of humiliating myself, those adorable giggles tend to come out!
What do we wear?
I suggest fun colors that are true to your personality! Casual Sunday is a great expression for style. Nice enough for church, but not so dressy that you wouldn’t go to a picnic at the park. While it’s important to match, it doesn’t mean that everyone should wear the same color. Instead, I suggest coordinating colors and adding layers and accessories to make it more fun! Something to keep in mind while planning your attire is what you’ll be doing with the images from your session! Are they going in an album? Maybe you’re getting a Canvas wall display? You may choose to coordinate your clothing and accessories to match the style of your home & décor! My home has lots of neutral/natural colors, so I tend to stick with neutral outfits accessorized with fun pops of color! Are you still stuck? Contact me as styling the session is my favorite part!
How long after our session until we can view the images?
Your images will be available in an online gallery within 3-4 weeks from the date your session. Depending on which collection you choose.
Why does it take so long?
After your session, I am busy “developing” your photographs as well as working on previous clients! To give you the best Images, I fully edit every image that will be placed in your online gallery and that my friend, takes time!
Will my images be posted on social networking sites?
Yes, some of the images or sneak peeks will be posted on Facebook, my blog, etc.
Do you offer a CD in any of your sessions?
I provide Online galleries! (Total upgrade) CD’s are slowly becoming a thing of the past! Before we know it, they’ll be collecting dust with the VHS, Floppy Discs, and Cassette tapes we all used to love.
