photo session FAQ

When will we get our photos (portrait sessions)?


My turn around for portrait sessions (like engagements, formals, family, maternity, etc) is 2-3 weeks!

How many pictures will we receive?


A regular hour shoot I typically send anywhere from 60-150+ edits. You're guaranteed 40 edited photos per hour! So 20 edited photos for a mini, and 80 photos for a two hour session (etc). You'll always get the best photos and I'll never cap it at a specific number!

Can we get all the photos you took at our session?


I don't share RAW files because first they are HUGE. For example a 64GB card only holds 1,500 RAW photos. 64GB!! Secondly, you hired me for my editing/style. You can't see this with RAW photos because 50% of the work is in editing!
The only exception is content creators who use their own editing, and commercial photography for advertising and inventory purposes.

Do you do boudoir?


YES! I love doing boudoir shoots but I don't share them because the comfort of my clients is very important to me. Email if you want to see examples!

do you allow for reschedules (portrait sessions)?


I understand that things happen, but your retainer is essentially "holding your spot" and I only take on so many clients at a time/per month. So your retainer fee is good for ONE reschedule as long as notice is given at least 2 weeks before your session for weekends + 8 hours before your session for weekdays (local only). A new date must also be chosen at the time of cancellation. After this, a new retainer is required to book a different date and your old one does not go towards your total. Previous rate is only good for the time it was originally booked, new rates may apply for reschedules. Retainers are 100% non-refundable and always required to book a session. If you downgrade your session (example from a full session to a mini session), only 30% of your original retainer will be applied to your session, and a new retainer will be required to book. The retainer fee is non transferable for mini sessions and travel sessions.

How much is the retainer/deposit?


The retainer fee is $100 for most sessions. This amount goes towards your total and is non-refundable.
