For headshots and commercial work I have a mobile studio. Meaning I can come to your location and set up with my studio lighting bringing the studio to YOU!
DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?
YES! YES! & YES!
WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU HAVE?
I'm a Canon Girl
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A PHOTOGRAPHER?
I started about 17 years ago. I was trained by the best in studio photography.
WHAT AM I GETTING WITH THE SITTING FEE?
The sitting fee is a non-refundable retainer fee that ensures your spot on my calendar for your initial in-person consultation, for your photo session date itself, and for our ordering session after that! Any new props that I may need, time taking your pictures, the time I spend editing, and for certain sessions includes hair and makeup done by a local professional artist! There is no minimum order requirement.
DO I GET ALL THE PHOTOS FROM MY SESSION?
No! Part of my job is the culling process of carefully going over each individual image and picking the best ones from each session. I only will show you the best of the best from your portrait session once they have been fully edited to my artistic style. Once I have put a gallery together the “out takes” have been purged.
HOW LONG DO YOU HOLD ON TO A SESSION?
You must order from your portrait session at the time of your gallery reveal. Everyone in the decision making process must be present at that meeting. For Portrait session all ordered images I hold onto for 6 months. If no order was placed the gallery is purged after 30 days. Weddings I hold the gallery for 1 (one) year.
HOW MUCH SHOULD I EXPECT TO SPEND IN PRODUCT AFTER THE SESSION?
Each order amount varies depending on client's needs/budget, but on average my clients invest between $400-$1,200 in print product during their ordering session. After seeing all their images and the high quality print and product samples I have, they can't help but want their pictures to be displayed in the best way possible!
DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?
I most certainly do! I understand what it's like to want something but it's difficult to drop large amounts of money all at once. For orders exceeding $300, I ask for $300 down and then we can customize a payment plan that works best for you.
