WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Probably my most asked question so you are not alone! I have specific brand colors that I will suggest using for your wardrobe so that your photos will most closely resemble what you see in my work. I have a client closet that you can borrow from and I will send you a style guide upon booking to help you visually coordinate your outfits. We will work together so that you feel confident and beautiful!
I always keep my eyes on the weather for all outdoor shoots up to 24 hours ahead of time. If the weather truly is not cooperating I will make every effort to reschedule your session. Have faith either way, clouds are a great prop ;)
WHAT IF IT RAINS?
After your contract is signed, and the deposit submitted, you are officially in the books! Yay! Next, I will be sending you a "What To Expect" document for our session, a questionnaire so I can start to get to know you better, and a style guide including access to my client closet, styling service, and outfit advice. Oh! And you will also get a quick text from me to open up an easier line of communication so that we can keep in touch throughout the whole process leading up to your session. This is just as important to me as the hour we physically spend together on location.
I JUST BOOKED! WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
I do! When your gallery is delivered, you have the option to select the "Print Store" dropdown and select whatever it is you are looking for. Orders are processed through top of the line photo printing services to provide superior quality and resolution. All you need to do is add the item to your cart directly from your gallery and checkout directly through the site!
DO YOU SELL PRINTS AND OTHER PRODUCTS?
I LOVE to travel and explore! Whether you have a location in mind or you would like to try somewhere brand new, count me IN. To compensate for fuel, mileage, and travel time, a $50 travel fee will be applied for every 30 miles past New Hampton, NY.
I appreciate your understanding when it comes to this fee!
WHAT IS YOUR “TRAVEL FEE”?
As soon as possible! I book up quickly and Fall and Summer are my busiest seasons. If you are looking for a maternity session, it is best to book these for 8-10 weeks prior to your due date. Newborn sessions are typically around 10 days postpartum however that totally depends on how you are feeling and can be adjusted as needed.
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK?
If you've never heard someone use the term "golden hour", it refers to that glowy time right before the sun begins to dip and everything turns, well, golden! Not only is this type of light GORGEOUS for photos, but it also allows us to get some beautiful sunset skies as the session progresses. Shooting at this time will make your photos absolutely beautiful and will mimic the results that you see in my work.
This question always tends to have a follow up- "but my kids' bedtimes are too early" or "the kids will be so cranky at that time". As a mom myself, I totally get that mentality- trust me. BUT how often do you get to take photos like this? Remind yourself that just this once, it is worth it. I recommend adjusting nap & eating schedules for the day and bringing bribes- YES THEY WORK!
WHY ARE YOUR SUMMER TIME SLOTS SO LATE? IT’S RIGHT AT BEDTIME.
I photograph small weddings and elopements with guest counts of 30 or fewer guests. And I LOVE a good adventure wedding! If this applies to you, let me know when you send your inquiry :)
DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH WEDDINGS?
