Where are you based and do you travel?
I'm not good in front of the camera. Can you help?
I am currently based in Woodland Hills, CA (about 20 miles for Los Angeles) and yes I love to travel! I mostly shoot locally around Los Angeles area and surrounding areas. I love exploring new places all over SoCal and traveling. However, if you want me to photograph your story, will require a travel fee, depending on where it takes place.
Absolutely! This is something I love to help with. I'll use prompts to guide you into having fun, being relaxed.
How do I get my portraits?
Do I have the rights to the images?
Do you give RAW (unedited) images?
How many portraits do I get?
What is your turnaround time?
At the reveal appointment, you will get to see all of the best portraits from your session and decide what products you'd like to display your images in. Here you may choose to order additional digitals, albums, or prints.
You will have a personal use and print release to be able to download, post, print, etc. as much as your heart desires! The only thing you can't do is sell the images. As the creator of the images I still have the rights to use the images I take on my website and social media to promote my services.
Absolutely not. It's not a finished product. My post processing is half of my style and I want to be able to provide you a finished product, after all, this is what you're paying for. This is industry standard.
I don't put a limit on the amount of photos you'll receive, I simply choose the best ones. Depending on which package you choose, you can expect to choose your favorites from there (usually 20 - 60 depending on a few things). I believe in quality over quantity.
In short, depending on the package you choose your minimum changes but the smallest package is 20 portraits. If you would like more they are available for purchase.
Typically around 3-4 weeks. If you need to see them sooner, please let me know when you schedule your session.
How far in advance should I reach out?
How do I book?
What if I need to cancel/reschedule?
Engagement - If you want me to get you popping the question then when you have a date in mind let me know and we can start planning. If you already popped the question, as soon as you want so you you have a date in mind.
Maternity - Most reserve their date with me during their first trimester. I recommend reaching out as soon as you have your due date and know when you'll be about 28-36 weeks.
Birth / Fresh 48 / Newborn - It's best to do this once you have your due date, this way I'm block out time for you two weeks before or two weeks after your due date. Fresh 48 is to be done within the first 48 hours after your baby is born and newborn should been done with the first week so we can get those tiny fingers and toes.
First things first, fill out the contact form so I can make sure I have your date available. I'll then get in touch to set up a call or meeting to ensure we're a good fit for each other.
I'll get over my different collections and help you figure out which one is best for you, or I'll make a custom collection for you. Once you're ready to move forward, I'll send an online proposal to you which had the payment plan and agreement. Once you sign the agreement and pay the $500 retainer you'll officially be part of the fam!
In the unfortunate scenario that for some reason you have to cancel your photoshoot, I retain the non-refundable retainer fee. If you need to reschedule, I have a $200 rescheduling fee.
