frequently asked questions by businesses requiring professional photography services.
What do I wear?
Don't worry! I'll send out a style guide full of tips, advice and inspirational ideas to help you plan. Additionally, I can help you narrow your ideas if you are overwhelmed with making a decision.
Most importantly, you'll want to choose colors and clothing that represents you, your business and lifestyle.
Who are my clients?
My clients are busy people who appreciate art, style and quality time as a family. They see professional photography as an opportunity to promote themselves in a powerful way and trust me to make that happen.
Most of all they want more than just a perfect head shot... they want to illustrate their business with great imagery that sells itself.
Is your style posed or candid?
We don't take the best photographs when we're told to 'smile & say cheese'. When working with professionals and other small businesses, I've developed a way of working that combines posed and candid photos.
I'll provide gentle guidance where needed, but I'll also step back and let you be yourself.
When will I receive my images?
Good news! Your proofs are available online for viewing within just 3-5 days!
Once you submit your digital file request, your retouched images are available for download in 2 weeks. With a total turn around of one month!
Do you provide digital files?
Yes! Every commission includes a set of digital files. With these you'll receive usage rights for promoting your business!
If you can't narrow them down, you can purchase the whole set or purchase individual files.
What if I have employees?
Should they be included in photographs or not?
The question you need to ask yourself is are they part of your brand? This is something we can discuss during your consultation.

Will you shoot inside or Outside?
This is a decision made on a case by case basis.
Since I'm frequently relied upon to photograph newborns & small children inside the family home, I make every attempt to schedule two weeks between indoor sessions.
Do you wear a mask?
Yes, it's true.
Whenever I'm within close contact with a client, I must hide my smile behind a layer of fabric! When I am appropriately distanced, I often expose my nose for fresh air :)
While I make every effort to minimize my personal risk, I'd rather suffocate through a mask than to inadvertently expose your family to my germs.
What about your exposure at weddings?
Because of the 2020 health crisis, I am NOT taking any large events until Fall of 2021.
I can't minimize my risk if I photographed a 100+ person wedding the day before our shoot!?
Therefore I'm not accepting large events at this time.
Do we need to wear masks?
I can't very well take your photograph if you're hiding behind a mask the entire time?!
So no! I don't require you to wear a mask. But I ask we remain socially distanced to the best of our ability.
These days, we're planning small, private photography services with no more than 10 people in attendance.
What if I have a sick kid?
Hey, it happens!
I ask all clients to take their temperatures 24 hours prior to their session.
In the event a household member presents with ANY symptoms within the last week, (cough, fever, vomiting, diarrhea, sore throat, loss of taste/smell, muscle aches)
we will need to postpone.
I allow enough flexibility in scheduling to make accommodations.
