What happens if we get rained out?
I keep a number of backup dates open each month in case of bad weather, and there is no fee to reschedule to a new date if it’s raining or overcast. Wilmington, NC weather is notoriously unpredictable and changes very quickly, so I typically wait to call off a session until that morning. Sunshine is a huge component of my style of photography, and it’s definitely worth waiting for a beautiful day!
What if my child does not cooperate?
I love getting to know my clients’ kids and I always approach the session as a new friend who’s just there to play and have a good time. I have all the patience in the world. That being said, not every moment of the session is perfect, and that’s totally OK — in fact, it’s encouraged! The unexpected moments are my favorite ones! I’m willing to bet that you’ll cherish the image of your toddler crying fake tears just as much as the one that we took 10 seconds later of him happily running toward the camera. My goal is to capture the personalities of the kids in front of my camera, including all of the beautiful quirks, details, and small moments that make up childhood.
How long does it take before we received our images?
You will receive a link to your own gallery within 1-2 weeks after the session. (For weddings 4-6 weeks.)
Do I have to order prints through you?
Your digital files are delivered via direct download in an online image gallery. You can order prints directly through your online gallery. Since you will also have access to your digital files with a printing release, you can order prints at any lab you choose. I highly suggest that you order through my lab as I can make sure the prints go through a quality control process. I cannot guarantee the quality of any prints that are not created through my preferred lab.
What is the "online gallery" ?
The online gallery is a private section on my website that allows you (and your family & friends) to view, order prints online and also to download your digital images.
What can I do to help the session go smoothly?
The BEST thing you can do is to let go and enjoy! I know it’s hard not to be stressed before your session, but babies pick up on anxiety really easily. We’ll have the best chance at getting gorgeous images if we let them happen naturally (with a little guidance from me, of course!) I want your pictures to be amazing and will do all the hard work for you! Your only job is to relax and have fun.!
How do I book a session?
I can’t wait to work with you! Please send me a message here which packages/session you would like to book, and I will send you further details. After that, you’ll be able to sign your model release with waiver and submit your session deposit ($30) online. (50% for weddings) is due upon booking to reserve your date, and the remainder is due on the day of your session.
