Frequently Asked Questions
Do I get the digital files? Yes, depending on what package you choose.
Can I purchase just a disc of digital files? Yes. I specialize in wall portrait photography, so print display for your home is what I do best. But I do offer a package of just digital files.
How are they delivered? All your photos are conveniently uploaded to an online gallery for your viewing and the low resolution images can be instantly downloaded and shared. You will also receive a personal USB with your full resolution (and watermark free) images stored safely on them at the time of print pick up.
Do you bundle newborn/maternity packages? Yes, absolutely. I can also create a personalized package based on the needs of the clients. For example, a "grow with me" package that takes photos of your newborn, and then at 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, and 1 year - you could also do only newborn, 6 mo and 1 year, or any combination you prefer. Photography is an investment and I want to be able to accommodate the needs of my clients.
When do I get to see our photos? I post your photos to an online gallery with in 7 days of your session. You will receive an email once your images are uploaded. You will then have 2 weeks to choose your favorites for printing.
What is the turn around time after I order? All prints and digital files will be ready within 7-10 days after ordering or after final payment is made. They can be picked up from my home or they can be shipped to you for a small shipping fee.
Where are the photos taken? If you are booking a newborn session, the photos will be taken in my in-home studio specifically set up to capture perfect lighting and access all my newborn props. (There are a lot!) I do not travel to clients homes for newborn sessions. There is just too many props and equipment to cart over. If you are booking a portrait session, once I've talked with you to get a vision of your style and what you are looking for we can decide on a location. There are so many beautiful and fun locations in Colorado I'm sure we will find the right one to suit your needs.
Do I pay for your travel? There is no travel fee unless the location is over 45 minutes from my home.
When to book
When do I book an on location shoot? I like to book my session on either Saturdays or Mondays. There is a $50 fee if you would like to book on Sunday. The best time of day for an on location photo shoot is 1.5 hours before sunset. The colors are beautiful and warm and perfect for lighting. Morning sunrise sessions are available as well, but we will find the best time to meet your needs.
When do I book my newborn session? I book newborn sessions on either Saturday or Monday as well. There is a $50 fee if you would like to book on a Sunday. Please contact me when you find out you are pregnant. I only take so many newborn sessions a week and I would hate for you not to get a spot. We never know when these little people will for sure arrive so I know the due date is tentative. It's best to photograph them within the first 10 days, so once you are home from the hospital we will talk and find the best time for you and your baby.
How to book
How do I book? Once we have booked our session all I need up front is the $150 non-refundable deposit to hold your date. This deposit is applied to the package of your choice. The rest of the payment is not due until after you have viewed your images and chosen the best package for your family.
How do I pay? I request cash or check for the $150 sitting fee/deposit. As for the rest of the package, I can accept cash, check or any major credit card.
