How long is a portrait session?
It varies from person to person. A session takes about an hour. Sometimes, we need to spend more time with little ones, especially newborns. Engagement and Senior sessions are pretty quick since we're working with people that can communicate a bit easier and not need diaper changes ;)
What time of day is best to schedule my session?
For the best lighting, I prefer sunrise and sunset. This will help us with controlling shadows and getting the most flattering light. We don't want crazy shadows all over your beautiful faces!
In what format will I receive my pictures?
I upload all of my images to a site called Pixieset. From there, you are able to share directly to social media, download images to your computer, and order prints.
How long until I get my pictures back?
For regular sessions, you should expect an email with the link to your album within a week or two, depending on how busy the season is. For weddings, you can expect anywhere from 4-6 weeks. The good thing is, I like to send previews to my clients. I'll go through and pick out my favorite 10-20 images throughout the session, edit them, and upload them within a couple of days.
How many pictures will I get back?
For most of my sessions, I deliver anywhere from 50-80 images. For weddings, I deliver anywhere from 300-1000 images. For both, it's sometimes more, sometimes less. It really depends how much we capture throughout the day. For the smaller wedding packages, obviously, we don't have as much time together, so there will be fewer images than there would be for the bigger packages with more time.
What happens if it rains?
If it rains, I'm more than happy to reschedule with you. I'm available most days, so if my weekends are booked, we can always work out a weekday, too.
Can we do poses that I found on Pinterest?
Absolutely! I'd love to see your ideas and incorporate those in your session. Send them to me on Pinterest, or copy the link and text/email it to me. I'll keep it on my phone so we have it to reference that day.
What am I allowed to do with my photos?
You are allowed to share and print as much as your heart desires! When I send you the link to your album, it does tell you exactly how to tag me in photos when posting to social media. Word of mouth is the best advertisement for me, so I'm always super appreciative when my clients help me by tagging me in their images on social media.
Contact me today for any other questions you may have or to request a date for portraits! I am usually quick to respond, so if you haven't heard back in a day or two, please text me.
Thanks so much for your interest! I can't wait to work with you!
