Frequently Asked Quesitons
Are you insured?
I am fully insured through Lyndon Southern Insurance Company. Please inform me if your venue requires proof of insurance, and I will gladly provide it.
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.
What should I wear to my session?
Choosing the right outfits is an essential part of creating beautiful portraits. I recommend wearing coordinated outfits that complement each other without being too matchy-matchy. It's best to avoid busy patterns or logos that can be distracting. I can provide you with style tips and guidance on what works best for your session during our initial consultation.
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 $0.65/mile.
How soon will I have my gallery?
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 the full two weeks. 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?
The number of images delivered is highly variable, but as a general rule, roughly 25 photos per hour of shooting will be in your final gallery.
Do I have to order prints through you?
No, you are not required to order prints through the website, but I do recommend either using my contracted lab through your gallery or another professional lab as drug stores, grocery stores, etc. don't have properly calibrated equipment and they will make your photos look much different than they do online.
Do you deliver unedited photos?
No, I do not deliver any unedited photos for any reason. My photos are carefully edited to best reflect the scene, the subject, and my brand, and unedited photos would not be a fair representation of any of those. For commercial clients, raw image licensing can be discussed on a case-by-case basis.
