What is the session fee?
The session fee covers the time and talent of the photographer taking pictures and editing individual images. The session fee does not include all of the digital files, prints, retouching, or other products.
What should we wear?
We love to see lots of textures and layers when we dress for picture. I love to see lots of different colors that are all a little different, but still go together. Due to the short nature of the sessions, it is not suggested that you do not bring extra outfits to change into. The most important thing about your outfits? That you feel GREAT in them. If you feel good in your outfit then it will shine through in your photos.
What location should we choose?
There are tons of great locations around DC, Maryland and Virginia. Depending on the age group of our subjects, we can suggest multiple locations including urban setting, country session, rustic setting or even beach location. The goal is to capture the most wonderful memory of you and your family, not a great landscape anyway. It really helps if you go through the website and learn what setting attracts you the most and we can definitely discuss it when we book your session.
What if it rains?
It happens less often than you’d imagine, but if it does rain, I am happy to reschedule. We will make the judgement call at 8:00 AM for morning sessions and at 12:00 PM for afternoon sessions on the day of the session.
What should we bring or prepare for the session?
The golden rule is to bring as little as possible with you to the session. We will be moving all around and getting up and down so you don’t want to have a lot of “stuff” to carry with you or worry about getting stolen. Make sure kids are fed and happy but try not to bring snacks/drinks/etc. It is a short amount of time and I often bribe the kids with food treats.
How long does it take to view our images after the session?
Within 2-3 weeks from the session date, you will receive a link to your online proofing gallery. Once received, you will have 10 business days to order digital files, prints, or other products from the gallery.
Do you sell high resolution digital files?
Yes. I believe you should have the opportunity to print/share your images anywhere you like. Digital files can be purchased in addition to your session fee and are delivered via download link. Email me for pricing details.
Can we bring our dog?
While we know that your pet is a beloved member of your family, unfortunately pets cannot be accommodated at the shoots.
