What does a Sitting Fee cover?
A Sitting Fee covers your session time, my travel costs and editing time.
How do I book a session?
Email me at [email protected] and we can discuss the best time for your session! A Sitting Fee is due to book your session. Your session will not be on my calendar until a confirmed payment is made.
When is the best time to have an outdoor session?
The most beautiful light is during either sunrise or sunset. Depending on the season, this time will vary. Other options include early morning or late afternoon. Middle of the day with bright sunlight is the least flattering and most uncomfortable time for an outdoor session.
What do I wear?
I am asked this question most often. Depending on the session, my suggestion varies. For most sessions, the best advice I can give is to wear neutral colors. Nothing bold with loud patterns, words or graphics. Think of where and when we will be taking photos as well as your comfort level.

What if I need to reschedule?
I ask that you let me know at least 24 hours before your scheduled session so we can then reschedule at a time withing the following 2 weeks that works better. Your sitting fee will only apply for one rescheduling.
What if YOU (the photographer) needs to reschedule?
If, for whatever reason, due to either illness, family emergency, weather or unforseen circumstances, I should need to reschedule a session, I will let you know asap! We will reschedule your session at the earliest time that works best for you!
What if I need to cancel my session?
Sitting fees are non-refundable, so I always ask that we find a way to reschedule when possible. If you simply want to cancel, you forfeit the sitting fee payment completely and will not be able to schedule a session without an additional sitting fee payment.
What is a Print Release?
A Print Release gives you, the purchaser, the right to print your photos from a cd or digital download at a print lab of your choice. These prints are for personal use only.
How soon can I expect to see my Online Photo Gallery?
My typical turnaround time for edit and upload is 2-3 weeks.
What is a Digital Download?
Once purchased, a digital download will be available on my website, in your personal gallery for you to download to your personal computer for printing purposes.
What print lab do you recommend if I purchase a CD or digital download?
To best represent my photos in the absolute best way, I highly recommend Mpix. The quality far exceeds any commercial quick-print places at a very affordable price. If you are looking to purchase a higher quality print or products, please order through me as I use a professional printing service.
