What types of sessions do you do?
I photograph all types of family sessions; including maternity, newborn, babies, children & seniors.
What does my investment cover?
The investment covers pre session planning, time for the session itself & props used during the session. It also covers editing & post-production time.
How do I book a session?
Contact me and let me know what type of session you are interest in and when. Once we pick a date & location, I will send over a session invoice & Welcome Packet. Please book early though, as I only take a certain number of sessions per month.
Do you offer any discounts?
I offer payment plans. I understand that photography is an investment. I also do Sales often and referral discounts. Ask for details.
What should I wear?
Once your session is booked I will send you a full prep packet. If you need extra help or ideas I will also send some links with wardrobe ideas.
What time will our session be?
l book almost all sessions a couple hours before sunset as this is the time that the sun is at just the right spot to create beautiful, flattering light for your session. Early morning sessions can also be booked.
What happens if we have bad weather for our outdoor session or a cloudy day for our indoor session?
We will watch the weather right up close to the session. I try not to reschedule sessions but sometimes it’s best.
Do you have a studio?
I do not. I can bring a small studio-setup to your home though.
How do I pay you?
There is a non-refundable 50% deposit due to book your session, with the remainder due on your session day. I will invoice you the deposit through PayPal, which is due within 10 days in order to secure your date on the calendar. The remaining balance is due on or before your session the day.
When will I receive my photos?
Your fully edited images will arrive within 3wks. With all Collections, you will receive an email from me giving you access to a private online gallery.
What area do you serve?
I serve the entire Northern Virginia area, as well as Maryland and D.C. Inquire about my travel fees.
How Far in Advance Should I Book?
1-3 Months ahead, depending on the Season.
What is the best age to photograph my newborn?
The best age to photograph a newborn is between 5-21 days following birth. During this timeframe babies are more likely to sleep soundly while being repositioned. If you happen to miss this short window of time, don’t worry – it’s always a ‘perfect’ time to capture moments of your baby/family.
Do I need to bring or purchase props for the session?
You certainly can, however I have numerous props available for my clients to use. We can discuss this during session planning.
Can I print the Photos I receive on my USB or digital download?
Yes you can! These are your images to print whenever & wherever you choose. I do highly recommend ordering your prints through me, or using a professional printing lab.
