Frequently Asked Questions

 

May we bring props to our session?

Props can add interest and personality to your photos. If props are something you are interested in incorporating, I suggest you bring whatever you think you might want to use. Before we start the session, we will go over what all you have brought and decide then what will and will not work for what we are doing. If you plan to bring props, please let me know ahead of time so I have a heads up.

 

How long do sessions last?

Session time varies depending on what we are doing. We will be incorporating posed as well as un-posed into our time together. Because of this we will not rush as its all about having fun during this time. In general though most sessions can run anywhere from an hour to an hour and a half or so... all depending on what we are doing of course.  

 

Will you suggest a location for the session?

I’d loved to share some of my favorite places! Please don’t feel like you are limited to just my suggestions. If there is somewhere you have in mind for a location, by all means, let me know! Also, please keep in mind that when kids are involved, it’s best to stick to one setting, such as a park or playground just to keep them co-operating. Pick a place where they are comfortable being themselves. When thinking of session locations, please think of places that you enjoy, that bring smiles to everyone's faces, places that MEAN something vs are just a "pretty" location. 

 

How can we best prepare for the session?

Get yourself and your family excited about the session. Start talking it up a few days before hand. For those family members who are really reluctant, bring the family history aspect into it, and let them know how happy you are of their willingness to document your family for this moment in time. If you plan to go all out on a styled shoot and need to purchase new outfits for everyone, turn it into a family day. Get lunch, do your shopping, make some memories! It’s a good thing anytime you can involve the entire family in session prepping. Most importantly remember that the goal of this session is about you all here and now in this moment in time, not whether your outfits and hair are on point. If you come into the session full of excitement and love in your heart your images are going to show that and rock regardless of what sort of outfits your all wearing. 

 

How do we pay and when is payment due?

There is a $100 non refundable fee due at time of booking. This fee is paid via online invoice and is what blocks your day and time slot off on my calendar. The balance is paid via online invoice and is due within 48 hours of the day of the photography session. All of this is done via online secure billing, and you will receive an invoice for all payments via email. 

 

What type of payment do you accept? 

We accept all secure credit/debit cards, as well as paypal. Cash can be used to pay the balance the day of your session as long as arrangements have been discussed and made beforehand. Receipts will be sent for all payments regardless of how they are done.

 

We see a lot of ideas on Pinterest that we like, can we suggest ideas for photos?

 During the pre-consultation we will discuss your vision for your session. If there is an image from Pinterest that you absolutely adore, you can send me the link and we will take a look at it. I am always open to your suggestions for your sessions. If you want to try something, you want to do something specific... we will do it. My rule of thumb is we can try anything... and if it doesn't work it doesn't work, but at least we tried it! You will never see an unflattering image of yourself from our time together, so while I am open to trying whatever, please keep in mind if it doesn't turn out, and doesn't make the cut of looking amazing, you will not see it. 

 

What is included in a session?

All sessions include a pre-session consultation where we discuss the details of what you want to do, where and when. Travel to the location within a 30 mile radius of Spanish Fork, Utah. Locations further than that require a small travel fee that will be sent to you with your quote before we book.  My skills and expertise during the shoot, and editing of the images. A link to a private, downloadable, watermarked, non printable, digital album of all images from the session for sharing on your choice of social media.

**All booked senior sessions receive a complimentary 1 hour session to use for their family before graduation. Depending on your package choice will decide how many outfit changes and locations you will have available.

After the session, you will be tagged in a few sneak peek images of my choosing on my IG/FB business pages. These images will be watermarked and are non printable. 

Finally, you will receive via email, a private order album of all your images from your session. From this album you can order beautiful wall portraits, family heirloom pieces, canvases, keepsake items, digital files with print release and more!

 

How long after the session until I see my photos? 

Turn around for your session images is 48 hours. 

 

As your photographer, I go out of my way to make sure that your entire photo session with me from start to finish, is one of the most easy going, laid back and fun memory making experiences you could ever have! If you still have questions please do not hesitate to get in touch with me!  I look forward to working with you and yours soon!! 

 

xoxo
