PORTRAIT SESSION FAQs
No, the session fee does not include digital images or products. They are sold separately.
The same day that we hold your session we will upload, back up and begin to process your images. We begin by choosing the best images from the session to edit, which is usually 20-30 images. Then about 4-6 weeks after your session your images will be complete and we can schedule the in-studio reveal/ordering session.
About 2 and a half hours before sunset is the optimal time to photograph. The lighting at this time is usually the best depending on whether there is overcast. If you are looking for somewhere open, like a field, then sunset or sunrise is highly recommended. We are always open to suggest locations for the best possible lighting.
If we are the right fit for you please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by text 919.995.5515, so we can discuss your session. Email or text is always the best way to contact me. Once a date is agreed upon the online portrait photography contract and model release will be emailed to you to fill out and pay the non-refundable retainer fee. Each session requires a $150 non-refundable retainer fee to book your date. The remaining balance is due 14 days prior to the session date.
We hope that Mother Nature cooperates with our schedule but unfortunately this is not always the case. If the weather is not favorable, we will cancel and reschedule for a future date. Inclement weather also includes extreme heat or cold as well. If we are unable to reschedule the appointment, non-refundable retainers are usable for up to 6 months from the original scheduled session date.
