Photo Session FAQ’s

Where does the session take place? Do you have a studio?

Sessions take place either outdoors or in my clients’ homes. I’d be happy to provide location suggestions in Jacksonville (and within the surround areas – up to 20 miles).

What should I wear?

It’s really up to you. My recommendation would be to stay way from clothes that have logos or distracting patterns. Anything that could catch the eye and move it away from the faces in the picture. If you’d like to coordinate, that’s up to you. But, I recommend that like tones stay with like tones, in other words; everyone should wear either dark or light tones.

What should we bring to the photo shoot?

Make sure everyone has been fed before the photo shoot and it’s always a good idea to bring water. Also, because I don’t currently use props, please be sure to bring any props you’d like to include in your photos.

Can we include pets in our photos?

Sure! As long as they are well behaved and the location we’re shooting at allows pets, definitely bring them along!

What is the best time to take photos?

Sunrise or sunset is preferred, but if there is ample shade we may be able to shoot at other times.

What about a meeting?

Absolutely! If you’d like to meet before booking your session we can definitely do that. We can go over locations, what you’ll wear, sign the photography session contract, etc.

What happens if we get rained out?

I cannot shoot in bad weather, so the shoot would be rescheduled for another date and time.

What happens if I have to reschedule my session?

If you need to change the date of your session, the deposit and any monies paid are transferrable as long as notice of at least 48 hours is given. If you cancel within less than 48 hours of your session there will be an additional charge of $10 at the time we book the next date.

If you cancel and decide not to reschedule, any monies paid will be refunded to you, minus the non-refundable $25 deposit.

What happens if we arrive late?

Due to the availability of natural light and other scheduling conflicts, if you arrive more than 30 minutes late to your session we will have to reschedule with a $20 rescheduling fee.

Do we get to pick the images?

I pick the best images from the set and edit them. If there’s something specific you’re looking for please let me know and I’ll work it into the shoot.

Do you edit all your photographs?

Yes, I do! Every image you receive has been hand edited, one at a time.

What does a session cost?

Pricing is listed on this page.

When and how will I receive my images?

You’ll receive your photos on a disk. Disks contain all the edited files from your session. It does not contain every photo taken – it contains the best photos from your session. I do not release unedited photos or RAW files under any circumstance, this is to protect my brand. Thank you for your understanding.

Photos will be available send out within 2-3 weeks after the session and will be delivered by USPS.

When printing your images it’s important to use a reputable and professional imaging lab to ensure your images look their best. I offer reasonable print packages if you would like to have your images printed through me. Contact me for details.

How do I book a photo session?

The next step is to email me and I will check my availability for the date you’re requesting. Once we select the best package for you, I will email you a contract to sign and an invoice for $25 deposit.  Once the deposit is paid, a second invoice will be sent to you for the remainder of the session amount and must be paid within 24 hours of your session to keep your date.

I can’t wait to work with you!
