WHAT’S REQUIRED TO BOOK A SESSION?
A 50% non-refundable retainer is required to schedule a session and must be paid within 48 hours. This reserves your session date and time and ensures your commitment. It also guarantees that I will not book anyone else. The remainder of the collection amount is due the day of session.
WHAT IS YOUR TURNAROUND TIME?
All of my client’s receive their proof galleries within two weeks from their session. This allows me enough time to perfect each and every image that you view in your gallery. Once you receive your proof gallery, you can make final purchases and download the images instantly to your computer.
WHAT IS A PROOF GALLERY?
A proof gallery is just a collection of the edited images from your session to choose your final photos from. As a photographer, I know what photos I love, but I may not know which ones you will love, so I let you choose your favorite images to download from a gallery of all of the images from our session together. You also have the option to purchase additional images or upgrade to the full gallery.
WHAT LOCATIONS DO YOU RECOMMEND?
I have many gorgeous spots that I love if you need help choosing a location for your session! I have a list of locations with photos that I can send to help you pick out something you love. If you have the perfect spot in mind, I can definitely come to you. If you are looking for something specific, but don’t know where to go, we can find the perfect location together. I also photograph many outdoor sessions at my gorgeous, exclusive, private outdoor property in Gregory, MI.
WHAT IF IT RAINS?
I totally get it!- you are investing into these photos and we live in Michigan… rain happens… A LOT! So unless your vision for your session is a rainy-day shoot, we can definitely reschedule to the next available date without penalty. I have backup dates for bad weather days!
WHAT DO I WEAR?
I 100% believe what you wear to your session is SO important and plays a huge role in the vibe and style of your photos. I also know that coordinating outfits can be confusing, time consuming, and stressful. That’s why I have invested in an interactive online styling service available to all of my clients! This service styles and coordinates your whole family for your session, gives you outfit options in a wide range of styles, colors, and price points, and all you have to do is click and purchase your favorite items online. No searching in the stores or online for hours or days or weeks. It puts all the outfits side by side for you to view too. SO EASY and the outfit options are adorable! You will receive the link + access code once your session is booked!
HOW DO I BOOK A SESSION?
Booking is super easy! Once you decide which session you would like to move forward with, I will email you a contract and invoice for the retainer to reserve your session date. Once both documents are completed electronically, the date and time for the session is officially yours and you are booked in my calendar!
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
Once you are officially booked, I will send you information and the link for my styling guide. This will give you the opportunity to plan your outfits for your session well in advance. I will also send over a questionnaire to get to know you and your family before the session. This will help me narrow down the perfect location (if we have not already decided one together) and customize the session to fit your family’s style and personality perfectly. The week of your session, I will send a reminder with detailed location information and additional helpful tips to help you prepare. I am here to make this as easy, seamless, and fun as possible for you and your family! If you have any questions at all during the process, I am always only a phone call or email away!
