Frequently Asked Questions


What does my session fee include?

Your session fee includes a pre-session phone consultation as well as the actual session for the time period you select, editing of your images, a private online gallery to view and order your prints. Please note that this fee does not include prints. You will have an opportunity to purchase prints A la carte once your gallery has opened. Session fees reserve time especially for you therefore are not refundable, however, you may reschedule at no additional cost.


What happens if the weather doesn’t cooperate for outdoor sessions?

Cloudy or overcast days produce a soft diffused light that is flattering for portraits. In the event of inclement weather, I will contact you to reschedule the session at our mutual convenience, or hold the scheduled appointment in the studio instead of outdoors.


How long is my private gallery open?

You will be notified the day your gallery opens and given a password. It is up to you to decide who else is allowed to view and purchase photos out of your gallery. You are given 45 days from the date your gallery opens to make printing selections. Your gallery will close after the 45 days and can be re-opened for another 45 days for an additional $25.


Are all of my images edited?

I always do a standard edit when I upload your images into your gallery. This includes deleting any closed eyes or blurry images and a basic crop or color enhancement of your photos. I do not edit out trash on the road or lint off of sweaters until I receive your print order. I only make detailed edits on the prints you choose to order. More complex editing such as head swapping can be done for additional fees. Those are things we go over during the ordering process.


What happens to Images I do not order?

After your gallery closes, the images you have not ordered are deleted, as I do not have the room to store thousands of images. I will archive any Images that you have ordered for 1 year from the date your gallery closes. For this reason, I strongly recommend the purchase of a disk or download of your session.


How long will it take for my order to come in?

Prints typically arrive from the lab within 2 weeks of order.  Payment is accepted via credit card. Specialty items such as Albums, Canvasses, and cards may take longer to arrive. Please keep this in mind when planning on giving prints as gifts, or ordering cards and invitations that need to be mailed out.


Do you offer a Disk of my session?

Normally in most cases, we will provide a private viewing gallery and email a link that will allow you to download a zip file with all of your images. A disc can be provided for an additional $15.
