Q: What's included with my investment?

 
 

Q: Where are you located and willing to travel?

A: Your session fee includes the time and expertise of the photographer. This does not include any portrait prints or digitals downloads, but I recommend ordering prints through me or a professional lab. I strongly believe in the importance of printing high quality portraits for you to cherish forever. My editing software has been calibrated to a professional lab to provide you with beautiful prints that match what you see on your screen. Many one hour and quick print labs don't match colors, and therefore provide you with an altered photo. Printing order minimums start at $100. A High Resolution download is provided with every print you order. If you prefer to order all photos as a digital download, pricing starts at $150.

A: I am located in Hillsboro, and my sessions typically take place in Portland and the surrounding area. This does NOT mean I will not travel outside of these locations, in fact I love new locations. However, note I do charge a travel fee for locations outside of 50 miles round trip from 97124, unless otherwise agreed upon prior to signing the contract.  We will work together to come up with the best possible location for your family and for the feel of what you want from your art.

Q: When is the best time to photograph my____?

A: Children have no set time to be photographed, but please be sure to cover all of your bases. Make sure your little has napped and eaten prior to our session, and definitely bring small non messy snacks. I generally only photograph children over the age of 1, unless we are doing 1 year old birthday style photos, or cake smash photos.

Families are best photographed when mommy says so :) But please consider later in the day for the best lighting for your photos. 

Engagements & Seniors are best photographed during the "golden hour", generally one hour before sunset. This provides the best lighting for me to get the great shots.

 

Q: How do I book a session?

A: You can contact me to inquire about a session, and receive my pricing guide. From there we can discuss the time, date and location and go through the formal booking process.

 

Q: About how much should I expect to invest in our session?

A: Session prices are $250, and this is for up to 6 people. We don't include digital downloads as part of the session fee, but do provide a high resolution download for all prints ordered. A pricing guide will be sent when you inquire. Galleries will only be available for 30 days for ordering unless other arrangements are made. Printing orders have a $100 minimum order, and the average client pays around $200 for a print order. Digital download packages start at $150 (not included with session fee).

Q: What is a session fee?

 

Q: What payment options do you take?

A:  The session fee secures your session date and time, and is non refundable. This covers my time and talent and is due upon booking. 

 

A: I accept credit cards via Stripe (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, JCB, Discover, and Diners Club). Stripe allows you to pay the invoices I send to you from your computer or smartphone. Checks and cash are not accepted.
