What types of sessions do you do?
I photograph all types of love. Families, 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 want and when. From there I will see what I have available on my calendar. 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. Please 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. Your entire outfit; hair, makeup, including yours shoes can make a good picture into a great picture.
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. Sunrise sessions and early morning sessions at your home 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 since I cannot shoot in the rain. Plus, clients are always happy we rescheduled for a better day.
Do you have a studio?
I have a small in-home studio that I set up. I only photograph newborns & babies indoors.
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?
I will show you a sneak peek of your photos via fb or email. After that, all your images will be completed & sent out to you within 2 weeks (3 wks during busy season). With all packages, you will receive an email from me giving you access to a password protected online gallery. You are free to share this password with family & friends so that they may also view your photos. This gallery will stay active for ONE week. All selections must be made within this timeframe. You will also have the opportunity to order prints through my professional printing lab and add-on any extra digitals you may want.
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?
2-3 Months ahead for Family Sessions / Maternity & Newborns – Beginning of 2nd Trimester with Maternity Sessions taking place around 32-36wks.
What is the best age to photograph my newborn?
The best age to photograph a newborn is between 5-14 days following birth. During this timeframe babies are more liklely to sleep soundly while being repositioned and they still have that newborn “curl.” This short window of time can be stretched a little if need be due to special circumstances.
Do I bring my newborn to you or will you come to my home?
I do two types of newborn sessions. I can come to your home for a “lifestyle” newborn session or you can come to me for a “posed” newborn session.
Can I print the Photos I receive on my USB or digital download?
Yes you can! If you have chosen to purchase hi-resolution digital images, you are free to print those photos for personal use only. These images are not watermarked. I highly recommend ordering your prints through me, or using a professional printing lab to print your photos as I cannot guarantee the quality of your photos if printed elsewhere.
