Frequently asked questions
IS A CONSULTATION NECESSARY?
Yes, we will speak by phone prior to your shoot to make sure we are on the same page. I want to know exactly what you are hoping to get out of your shoot.
HOW LONG WILL MY SHOOT TAKE?
Each look will take about 45 min to an hour.
WHATS IN A LOOK?
One outfit and one background.
HOW MANY PICTURES WILL I GET?
I will shoot until we capture the perfect image for you. This typically ranges 50-75 images per look.
HOW DO I GET MY PHOTOS?
You will receive an emailed link to an online gallery of all your images within 24-48 hours of completing your shoot. Your online gallery will be available for up to 60 days.
DO YOU RETOUCH MY PHOTOS?
I can professionally retouch one image for each look that you have purchased. Additional retouching is available for $45 per image.
WHAT IS RETOUCHING?
Retouching is a careful edit of your image. My goal is to keep all edits subtle, making sure that you still look like your photograph once the image is complete. This could include adjustments such as removal of skin blemishes, removal of flyaway hairs, slight teeth whitening, eye enhancement, and image color adjustments
DO YOU DO RESHOOTS?
Because we are in the digital age, no. You will be involved in your session as we capture your images. You will be allowed to see my work periodically to ensure your images fit your needs, and to make sure your hair, makeup, and wardrobe are what you envisioned. Please be honest and speak your mind.
DO I NEED A MAKEUP ARTIST AND HAIRSTYLIST?
It’s encouraged. We will discuss your options during our consultation.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Actors should bring items along the lines of the characters they portray. Business professionals should bring work attire. An item that you love might not photograph well, so make sure you have lots of options. I recommend that you bring two to three wardrobe options for each look that you have purchased. You want to avoid tops with logos, slogans, or writing that could pull attention away from your eyes in the image.
WHAT IS YOUR POLICY ON LAST MINUTE CANCELLATIONS?
Your deposit is fully refundable up until 72 hours prior to the shoot date. Once we are in the 72 hour window your deposit is no longer refundable, but there are a few instances where I will allow rescheduling without requiring an additional deposit. Communication is key.
