How long until I am able to see my photos?
Within a few days after your photoshoot I will send out a sneak peek. This usually consists of one main photo but may be an album of photos. *sneak peeks may be delayed in high volume times (spring/fall)
My turn around:
Newborn: 2 weeks
All other sessions: 3-4 weeks
*I can not make any exceptions for my turn around, as this time is spent going through each of your photos and editing them*
When and where are your shoots?
When: The last hour of the day. Why? The lighting the by far the best... harsh mid day sun is not flattering and doesn't allow me to be creative as I can be. Take a peek at my Simply Family page.. those images would not be able to be achieved with that look.. any other time of day. I promise the golden hour is WELL WORTH it!
During the warm months I shoot at two locations:
1. A wild flower farm near Harleysville Pa (near Lansdale)
2. Heckler Plains farmstead near Harleysville Pa (near Lansdale)
Why? These two locations have a wonderful sunset and been nothing but magical to shoot at... it is where I get my own family photos taken!
Do you do mini sessions?
It is true in the past I used to do mini sessions, however I feel as if my creative ability is held to a minimum and I think it is appropriate to give your children and you all the proper amount of time to get the photographs you are looking for. Unless I give out a special at this time I will only do full 1 hour sessions.
Will you shoot at a location of my choice
I have tried many locations and find that the ones stated above are the best locations to shoot at. If you have a local idea we can discuss further.
Will you travel to do my shoot?
For newborns I do come to your home and will travel (without a fee 40 miles from Harleysville Pa)
For all other sessions I will remain in Montgomery County and shoot at the locations above. My Allentown travel will be limited and I highly recommend taking the trip down the turnpike to see the amazing locations! I may have fall sessions in Allentown but summer sessions will only be in Montgomery County
How many edited photos can I expect?
Full Family : 35-45
Extended family 50+
Should I bring any props?
For all sessions other than the cake smash, I supply everything. The cake smash you must bring your own cake.
For cake smash sessions I do supply the balloons and any other props I feel necessary.
Newborn: I come to you and supply all of the lighting and the props.
How do I book my appointment?
A non refundable deposit of $25.00 is required to hold your spot. This will be taken off the balance due for the session.
How do I get my prints?/Do you provide a CD?
I allow you to download your galleries. This means you an print through my professional printing service, or your own favorite printing location ;) CD's and USB's are not included in these prices because I allow you to download the photos
Can I see all of my photos (or more than the edited ones?)
It is not the industry standard to show the unedited photos. I take a long time going through each photo and deciding what to edit. . I take great pride in the work I produce and I promise I do not let any moments go undone. :)
I will not re-edit photos, unless there is an actual problem with the photo. I will not re-edit to change any naturally occurring features
