Thank you so much for your interest. Whatever has brought you to this point, it means the world to me.
I have a pretty simple and laid-back approach to my whole process. (From my business style to my shooting style) I try my best to be flexible, approachable, open-minded and always creative thinking.
I have put together some answers to some frequently asked questions. I hope it helps you get the feel of how I work and how simple and fun all of this can be!
How far in advance should I book my session?
Ideally, I would say to book your session about 2 months or more in advance. Weekends always get booked up first. I do offer some week nights after 6pm depending on the location and time of year. Bookings are first come first serve. I hate turning people away, so please send me an email to inquire about availability as soon as you can.
Do you require a deposit/retainer?
Yes, I do require a non-refundable deposit/retainer. (It comes off the balance of your session price.) The price varies depending on what type of photo session you are booking. The deposit is important because only once I have received it is when your session date and time is put on my calendar. It also shows me your commitment to our session as well :)
What type of payments do you accept?
The only types of payments I accept are cash (CAD) or e-transfers sent to my email address firstname.lastname@example.org
When is the balance of my session due?
The deposit/retainer is due at the time of booking. The remaining balance is due at the time of the session.
What time of day is best for our session?
I am a light seeker. I feel like the most important part of my photography is finding the best light. So to get the best light I may try to nudge you to schedule your session when the sun is nice and low! ;) That can either be bright and early in the morning or late in the day. It is always worth it! Sometimes that means keeping the kids up past their bedtime but I promise you I will make it fun for them and once you see the images you will be glad you did it!
What do I wear??!
Whatever you feel comfortable in. Whatever makes you feel confident. Consider your session location. Is it in your home; then make sure to choose colours that compliment your decor. Is it at a park; then maybe consider choosing colours that will pop against the green. Layers, texture and patterns are always a great choice! Still not sure? Message me! We can walk through it together :)
When will we receive our images?
It will depend on the season. Fall is the busiest time of year. For lifestyle sessions, I try my best to have them done within a few weeks. For events and weddings it will be longer. But don't worry I will post some sneak peeks to my Facebook page within a day or so.
How do I get my images?
I provide you with a private gallery on my website with your own password. There are simple instructions on how to download them directly to your own computer! (Don't forget to BACK UP your images!!!) It's super easy!
Do you offer gift certificates?
Yes! Prices of sessions and digital images are subject to change. But once you purchase the gift certificate that session price is locked in!
