Frequently asked questions
Do I need to pay the whole session fee to book?
Nope! For portrait sessions I only require a $50 retainer fee to hold your session date and time. This retainer fee is applied to the entire balance. To complete bookings also include contract signing.
How do I know what locations to pick?
Don’t you worry! This is also all part of my job! After the booking process we will go into full detail of what you are envisioning for your session. Whether it may be architecture, ocean, greenery or an open field. I have just the right location for you! The perfect location could be your very own home!
What do I wear?
I’m always here for style help! Selecting clothing that contrasts well with your location is most important. Second most important is to not clash or mix patterns. It is best to pick one family member to wear a pattern, if its a must. Then to choose remaining outfits to contrast. No need to be matchy. Always dress as yourself but dress up a from your every day attire. Ladies, dresses and gowns photograph really well.
How many photos do you take?
How many will I receive?
I take a lot of photos! I hardly put my camera down. Most of them will be blinks and repeats that I sort out before editing. Trust me, your gallery will be the best of the best images!
I’m all inclusive which means I always deliver all the best images. Images are completely chosen by me. I believe this is a continuation of my job. Picking the best photo is difficult. Leaving out a photo you love shouldn’t have to happen and compromise your story. That’s why I edit and deliver all the best images to fully display the emotions and story being told.
How do I book a homecoming if I don’t have a return date?
Don’t worry! That’s to be expected with military homecomings. I only book one family per unit, MEU, etc. This helps me to not to become double booked. As you get more information about date, time and location you pass the information to me. (I always promise to respect all OPSEC) I understand that there may never be an exact return date until they are in route.
Do you offer mini sessions?
I do not currently offer styled mini sessions with props. However, a thirty minute session can accommodate in certain situations! Please don’t hesitate to reach out to discuss!
