(Frequently Asked Questions)
What is the standard turnaround time for delivery?
On average, it takes 2 to 3 weeks for delivery of photographs.
How to Book?
It’s pretty simple! Because I feel it’s best to discuss times personally, just shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Do All Sessions Get Shared Online?
As the photographer I retain rights to all images as well as the right to use any sessions on my site or social media platforms. That being said, all clients sign an optional model release before their session. If you prefer to keep your images private, you may request that at that time. For any clients who choose to decline the model release, I absolutely respect your decision and will keep your images private.
What Do I Wear?
This is a common question that everyone has once they’ve booked a session. I’ve created a number of Pinterest boards that all contain numerous examples of what would work great for your type of shoot. You can find those here.
Where Does the Session Take Place? Do You Have A Studio?
Typically all sessions will take place either outdoors, in the clients’ home, or at a space procured by the client. For outdoor sessions, I’m happy to provide location suggestions. Travel is included for locations covered within the Houston area. For locations outside of that, travel will be billed at $15/hour. Contact me for more information on travel outside of the Houston area
What Happens If It Rains On the Day of My Session?
I keep a few days open during the month for inclement weather redo days, so you can reschedule your session, without a rescheduling fee, for one of those days.
Are the Photographs Retouched?
All photographs that you order will be fully retouched at no additional charge. Common fixes such as blemish removal, skin smoothing, teeth whitening and the like are included. If you’re interested in more advanced post processing, that is available for a nominal fee.
I Only Need A Few Images. Can I Just Get One or Two?
Photography should always be personal and tell a story, therefore I strongly believe that the experience shouldn’t be rushed. I find that when people have time to settle into the session and get used to the camera, we’re able to create more authentic portraits. For that reason, I no longer offer mini-sessions. However, I do put forth special offers from time to time, and the best way to find out about those is by signing up for my newsletter.
