Frequently Asked Questions


  1. May we bring props to our session?

Props can add interest and personality to your photos. If props is 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. If you plan to include props, please let me know ahead of time so I can plan accordingly.


  1. How long do sessions last?

Session time varies depending on the package you select. My package options are 30 min or 60 min unless we have set up a custom session package. 


  1. Will you suggest a location for the session?

I’d loved to share some of my favorite places! Don’t feel like you are limited to my suggestions. If there is somewhere you have in mind, 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. Pick a place where they are comfortable being themselves. The locations I have on my list are all outside, easy access locations. I know how these locations shoot, when the best time of day for each spot is, and how amazing they look in the images. So if your not particular about a set location, we will chat about what your wanting to do and I can pick the location that will best fit what your wanting to do off this list I have. 


  1. 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 in 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. 


  1. 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.


  1. I see a lot of ideas on Pinterest, can we suggest ideas for photos?

 During the pre-consultation we will discuss your vision for your session and my experience. If there is an image from Pinterest that you absolutely adore, you can send me the link and we will take a loot at it. I am always open to suggestions during 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! 


  1. Is there a time that is better than others for outdoor photo sessions? 

Please know that I am a professional with over 20 years exp under my belt and have mastered how to use any light to get what I want from my images. There is no better time than others if your not concerned about the "Golden Hour", which I myself am not. I like you, like to sleep in in the mornings when I can and then spend my dinnertime hours with my family. Regardless of the time of your session, you will want to make sure to factor in extra time just in case you happen to be running late, run into traffic, want to change outfits during the session, etc…


  1. 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 basic culling and editing of the images. All booked senior sessions receive a complimentary 1 hour family session to use 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 FB business page. These images will be watermarked and are non printable. The sneak peek images will also be posted on Instagram, and if we are friends there, you will be tagged there too!

Finally, you will receive via email, a private proof/order album of all your images from your session. From this album you can order beautiful wall portraits, canvases, keepsake items, digital files with print release and more! In a separate email you will receive a low resolution, non printable, social media share album of all your images from the session. These images are already formatted for sharing on various social media platforms. Last but not least depending on your package choice (when applicable) you will receive a email with a link to download your high resolution digital images with print release. 


  1. What type of payment do you accept? 

I accept paypal and all major credit cards. 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 via email for all payments regardless of how they are done.


  1. How long after the session until I see my photos? 

Turn around for your session image albums is 48 hours excluding weekends and holidays. I will usually post the few sneak peak images to social media within 12-24 hours of photographing the session, so make sure you are connected!


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!!
