Frequently asked questions

Frequently asked questions

What is the typical duration of a family photo session?

Typically a family session with immediate family only tends to last between 45 minutes to an hour. I try to move as quickly as possible so that the kiddos stay completely engaged and don't start getting tired. For extended family sessions, they may run a bit longer to make sure everyone has their time to shine!

what should we wear?

Once your session is confirmed and you're on the books, you'll receive a style guide with outfit options for the whole family. However, my favorite color palettes are earthy-tones and neutrals. They tend to pop the best against outdoor scenery.

where will our session take place?

Once booked, you'll also receive a list of vetted locations to choose from for your session and photo examples of shoots I've done there.

How many family members can be included in the session?

All shoots include immediate family. Any additional family members (i.e grandparents, aunts, uncles) may be added onto your session for an additional fee.

We're not good at posing. Will you help us?

Of course! I have plenty of experience posing children and adults and will be there with you and your family every step of the way. If I have to hand pose every limb on your body I will!

What is the turnaround time for receiving the edited photos?

You will receive your digital proof gallery of unedited photos within one week of your session. At this time you'll be able to choose the photos you would like fully retouched and edited from your photoshoot. Our team will then complete edits of your final images in 2-3 weeks.

What happens if the weather conditions are unfavorable on the scheduled day?

As long as it's not storming I always plan to go ahead with the session as cloudy days have some of the best lighting and beautiful cloud formations in the sky. If there is severe weather in the forecast then we will absolutely reschedule for a later available date.

How do we book a session with you? Is a deposit required?

Yay! If you're ready to book then just shoot me an email using the contact form below and we'll get the booking process started. There is a $250 nonrefundable retainer required to book. I can't wait to work with you!
