I’d like to have more than one outfit for my session. Can I add outfits?
Yes, but please keep in mind your allotted time for your session.
Do you touch up all of your photos?
I do retouch each image individually to make sure the color, saturation, and lighting looks as it should. I strive to provide you with an entire fine art portrait collection that is one of a kind.
Do we get all of the images you take on the session day?
No and I do not allow the extra photographs to be seen as they are typically duplicates with eyes closed. I break down all of the images taken into the best collection that beautifully represents my work and your session. I fully believe in quality above quantity. These are all hand-picked and carefully edited in detail, then delivered to you as well as posted in an online gallery.
I really want to Book, but do you offer payment plans?
For sure! Payment plan requires a 1/2 of your session fee, with the remaining balance of due before your session. If for any reason you need a custom payment plan, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org
How soon can I see my images?
After your session, I'm probably just as excited as you to see the images! I begin my process with culling through all of the pictures I've taken and save them to an external hard drive and an online backup, just in case. Within the first 48 hours after your session, I'll post a couple sneak peeks on my facebook (with your permission), Make sure you're following my account so that you can be tagged in them and show them off to all your friends! Then, I go through and edit all of the images. Your images will be ready in about 2 weeks after your session via your own custom online gallery. Your gallery will remain live for 2 weeks to place your order. Once I've gathered and placed your order, I'll make arrangements with you within 2-4 weeks to hand-deliver your products!
Where are you located?
I’m located in Mission Viejo, CA area, but I take sessions throughout Orange County area. I do travel to New Orleans area a couple times a year and do take sessions with no travel fee during those times. For local sessions, I typically shoot in the Mission Viejo area or arrange a customized travel fee for locations over 30 miles from the 92692 area.
How can I reserve my session date? Can you hold my date?
All collections require a $100 retainer fee, on the day of booking, in order to book your session date. Collection prices are for up to 5 people. additional person/$25. After your retainer is received, a contract will be emailed to you. I do not hold a date without a retainer and signed contracts. I book dates on a first come, first serve basis.
Do you make any of our images black and white?
Yes. Some images look better in black and white! I use my professional and creative judgment on this with every portrait. My goal is to make your entire collection as beautiful and unique as possible. I do not supply you with every image in color and/or black and white. It is simply based on my professional judgement.
do you offer hair & Makeup services?
YES! I am a licensed cosmetologist. You do have the option of adding these services to your session. Please remember you do need to allow additional time before your session for this. Hairstyling is an additional $40 and a full Makeup Application is $45. Please allow up to additional 2 hours for these two services.
Do you do weddings?
I do not. However, I do offer Bridal Portraits.
