What are my location options?
If you have any locations that you'd like to use, we can usually make them work! I have quite a few go-to spots locally, but I'm always down to try new locations as well! We can go over the style that you want your session to reflect and chose a location based on that.
Where are you based and do you travel?
I am located in Princeton, North Carolina but will travel anywhere within reason to take your photos. Travel within 40 miles of Princeton is included in the session fee, but after that I charge the IRS standard of $0.57/mile.
When will we get our photos?
Your will receive an online gallery link with all your photos within 14 days of your session being completed. Most sessions are delivered sooner than that, but in busier seasons, please allow that amount of time. If you have a special case requiring a faster delivery time, please reach out so we can work something out.
How many pictures will we receive?
Delivery number varies based on many factors, but most standard family sessions receive around 15 photos, extended sessions around 30, and senior sessions around 60.
Do I have to order prints through you?
No, your session fee includes printing rights, but I strongly encourage all clients to order through the gallery store or a professional lab. Printing your photos at a drug store, gift site, or other less professional businesses make the prints you receive reflect poorly on my brand image so they are strongly discouraged.
What kind of equipment do you use?
I use an array of professional equipment from Sony, Sigma, and Zeiss, three of the largest names in photography, to ensure that I am delivering you the best possible photos.
Do you give out unedited photos?
Short answer, no. I do not release unedited photos under any normal client circumstance. In commercial cases or if shooting for another photographer, sometimes this can change, but as a general rule, I do not release unedited files.
Unedited files do not reflect my brand image and the average person does not know how to edit them to look normal. Rest assured that asking for the raw files will not get you anything extra. I deliver all photos from the session that I deem to be the best reflection of my contractual obligation to my clients.
