COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW AND WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS?
I deliver all my images via an online gallery - turnaround is 5-15 business days. You’ll receive an email with a link to your gallery where you can download your images and purchase prints, if desired. Your gallery is available for 3 months.
HOW DOES BOOKING WORK?
After we have agreed on the details of your shoot, a contract signature and 50% deposit is required to reserve your date and time. Payments can be made via Stripe (credit card) or Venmo.
DO I HAVE TO ORDER PRINTS THROUGH YOU?
You can choose to print your photos through my professional printer which is conveniently integrated with your photo gallery and provides trusted quality. Or, you can print elsewhere as all sessions come with a print release. I highly recommend printing through a professional printer to get prints that reflect the same quality of your digital images.
WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS?
SAN DIEGO CLIENTS: Rain is so rare and when it does bless us with its presence, it tends to rain hard. If you have an outdoor session and rain is forecasted for the day of, we will most likely shift your dates (based on current availability). I will reach out to you the day prior or morning of your session to talk through the forecast and make a plan.
SEATTLE CLIENTS: Rain is inevitable in Seattle. I like to wait until the morning of your session to make any decisions for the day - sometimes the sun comes out just in time. I ask you to keep flexibility in your schedule as we might need to shift the timing of the session. Light rain is usually no big deal to shoot through. If the forecast calls for heavy rain all day, we may need to shift your session to another date - reschedules are based on remaining availability on the calendar.
CAN YOU PHOTOSHOP ____?
I use Lightroom to enhance your images and remove blemishes, but I will not alter your appearance. If you want perfectly photoshopped images, we probably aren't a good fit to work together.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
I will provide a style guide once you book your session.
Some general tips are: You can never go wrong with solid colors - earth toned neutrals are best. Dress everyone in coordinating colors. Prints are ok if the design is small, only one family member is wearing print, and everyone else is in coordinating colors. Avoid logos if at all possible.
