WHAT IS THE SCHEDULING PROCESS LIKE?
The scheduling process is simple. After we have chatted and you decide on a package, I will email you a link to the contract, invoice, and questionnaire. After the contract is signed, and invoice is paid your session will be officially booked. I require a non-refundable deposit of 50%. The remainder of the session fee is due the day before the session.
WHAT IS STORYTELLING PHOTOGRAPHY?
Storytelling photography is an emotive style of photography meant to evoke feeling and stir up memories from the viewer of how life was in that moment. Storytelling is the whole big picture. It showcases everything from the big details like what your house is like to small moments such as your little one running their chubby hands through your hair.
WHAT IS NATURAL POSING?
Natural posing to me is giving you direction while also having an activity to do. It’s all about forgetting there’s a camera there and just being yourself.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING A SESSION?
To start things off, we will do a few group shots and then quickly go into exploring and playing games to get those candid images we all love. I’ll make sure to get plenty of shots of your family as a whole, individual shots showcasing each personality, and different pairings along the way. Sometimes I will have you look at the camera and others I will be a mere spectator documenting the scene. With that said, if you are hoping for a majority of your gallery to be everyone posed and smiling at the camera than I am not the photographer for you.
HOW DO I KNOW WHAT TO WEAR?
You will receive my style guide, which includes all the details you need to know. Plus, I am always more than happy to create a Pinterest Board with you to help you decide what would look best.
I FEEL LIKE I’M AWKWARD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA. WILL NATURAL POSING WORK FOR ME?
Yes! A big part of my job is to make sure you all look your best. I’m am an experienced photographer who prides herself on knowing which angles are the most complimentary. Guidance and direction will be given when needed so all you have to worry about is showing up and having fun.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET MY IMAGES?
You will receive an invitation to the online gallery within 3 weeks. At that time, you will be able to download all of your high resolution images. Your fine art prints will be delivered via post within 2 weeks after you have chosen which images you would like printed.
WHAT IS A PRESSED PRINT?
A pressed print is a high quality 5x5 photo with a textured matte-finish. If included in your package, you will be able to favorite the images that you would like to be printed into a pressed print once you receive your online gallery. Your pressed prints will be sent directly to your home with the address you provided.
DO YOU TRAVEL FOR SESSIONS?
Absolutely! It makes my soul happy when I am able to capture your family in a setting that is important to you. Travel costs extra, but get a few friends to book a session too and you can split the fees!
