Frequently Asked Questions...
Do you travel?
Yes! Let me know where/when you have in mind and I'll be happy to work with you on travelling price quote. I am currently located in Fernandina Beach, FL.
Are you LGBTQ+ friendly?
Do you offer discounts/bundles?
Yes I do. I offer a credit toward any newborn photography package when you book either a maternity or birth session with me (deposit must be paid in order to receive credit). I can also offer maternity + birth at a special bundled rate or birth + newborn at a special bundled rate. Feel free to contact me to find out more information. Any active duty military members, veterans, first-responders and LEOs are eligible for a 5% discount on all sessions. Just let me know if you or your spouse/partner are any of the above and I will happily apply the discount to your total. Thank you for your service to our country and to our communities!
Do you have a client wardrobe?
Yes! Feel free to reach out to see which pieces I have available. I am always adding more to my client wardrobe, so be sure to ask!
How does booking work?
When you're ready to discuss a photography session, feel free to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, with your name and shoot/event date in the subject line. I do my best to respond to emails immediately, but please give me up to 48hrs to respond. When details have been discussed, a 50% deposit is required at the time of booking to reserve your date. Deposits are non-refundable. The remainder is due one week before shoot date.
I'm so awkward in front of the camera, is that okay?
If you're awkward, I'm awkward. No. Seriously. I am so awkward, BUT it IS my job to help you come out of your shell, so rest assured awkwardness is no big deal at all! My photography style is also all about the raw and the real, and I generally do not retouch either, so what you see at the end is the magic I experience during your shoot!
When/How will I get my photos?
I do my best to get all photos sorted through and edited within 10-14 business days (yes, Saturday + Sunday are business days for me over here), but should there be a special circumstances that comes up, I will most certainly inform you. Birth photography is one of those, so the turnaround time for those is currently 14-18 business days. I also try to get sneak peek pictures (just a few from your session) sent your way within 24hrs.
Photos will be sent to you via digital photo gallery OR via physical USB drive mailed to your home (+$10/session).
Are you a hands-on type of person?
Absolutely! I pride myself in being overly-involved with these kinds of things, because at the end of the day, my job is to make you happy. I am here and open to guide you whichever way you may need and figure out which session is right for you. I am always a text/phone call/email away! Don't be shy.
Do you offer video/film sessions?
I do! I offer them in the form of photography session add-ons. For more information, visit the "video investment" subpage on my website. I do offer bundle photography/session video package deals for birth + wedding/elopement sessions, so if that is something you are interested in, feel free to reach out!
Can I have the RAW files as well?
The beautiful thing about hiring a photographer is that you are hiring them both for the service of photographing you, but also because you love their editing and shooting style. Part of what you pay for includes my time culling, editing, and compiling a final gallery of your images, so with that being said, RAW images are for the photographer only. RAW images are essentially a blank slate, waiting to be perfected by the artist. The biggest hope as a photographer is that the client hires you because they love your shooting style and editing style, and that they are also absolutely in love with the final, perfected images at the end.
Do you offer re-edits?
In the event you need a few photos re-edited or you want B&W photos converted to color, I will be happy to re-edit for a fee. Re-edit fees depend on the amount of photos and what is needing to be done to them, so it is completely unique to the situation.
