Q. Does my session incldue prints or products?
A. No, prints and products are purchased separately via Collections or A la carte. Your session fee ($295) covers time, talent, fully retouched yearbook photo submission (if applicable), make-up and photo session. (Products)
Q. When should I have my senior portraits taken?
A. You can book your session as early as your junior year and as late as February of your actual senior year. If applicable, please keep in mind of any deadlines for yearbook photo submissions (not all schools have a deadline and some schools require you to use their contracted photographer for yearbook photos only). It also depends on the vision you have for your session, i.e. summer for sun and fun, bright colors, fall for bold colors and a light breeze, winter for cold weather, winter fashions and holiday lights or spring for less layers, blooming flowers and light sun.
Q. How much is the session fee if I am a guy and/or don’t need makeup?
A. Great question! Although professional make-up is not required, it’s highly recommended as there is a huge difference between everyday make-up and camera ready make-up. Professional make-up consists of using highly pigmented make-up that highlights your best features giving a natural, yet glamorous look for your session. However, senior guys (and if you opt not to get professional make-up) that book will still pay the $295 session fee which covers time, talent, digital yearbook photo (if applicable) but will come with a print credit of $50.
Q. What happens if it rains?
A. We live in Georgia. Rain happens! In the unfortunate event of rain during a scheduled outdoor session we will either utilize an indoor area or we can reschedule for another day.
Q. When is payment due?
A. Payment for your session fee is due at time of booking and payment for print orders are due at your premiere ordering session.
Q. Do you offer payment plans?
A. Yes! Payment plans are only available on print and product orders. Payment arrangements are offered up to 3 months with equal payments required per month via automatic debit. Payment plans are not applicable on session fees.
Q. What form of payment do you accept?
A. Cash, Check, Paypal & Credit Cards. A $30 fee will be imposed for all returned payments due within 3 working days of being notified.
Q. What are your turnaround times?
A. Your premiere ordering session takes place within 2-3 weeks after your session. At your premiere we’ll design all of the products and goodies! Once your designs are approved by you, orders will be placed and ready within 2-3 weeks. Custom products may take longer than others.
Q. Can I post images to Facebook or Instagram?
A. Absolutely! Depending on the collection chosen, digital web-sharing files are included for posting onto social media and sharing via email. I ask that you refrain from cropping out logo, adding filters or altering the image in any way.
Q. Who chooses the locations?
A. I have several preferred locations both urban and natural. We’ll work together to decide on the ideal location(s) for your shoot. We’ll consider the mood, outfit choices, and most of all your personality when choosing locations. If you have a location you’d like (must be legal, lol) I’ll do my best to make it happen!
Q. Who is allowed at my photo session?
A. If you are under 18, at least one parent must attend. I don’t mind if you’d like to bring one friend along. Keep in mind sometimes this can be distracting but it’s totally your call.
Session fees are non refundable. A $100 fee will be applied to all cancellations.
I am happy to reschedule your session due to illness or inclement weather within 30 days of the original session date.
