What if I don't like My photos? I am really picky!
I am picky as well!!! I understand you know what you like, this is why I only edit photos you have chosen and love. I always choose my own personal favorite for a sneak peek, but as for the photos that you purchase, you choose them. I have yet to have a client not like any of their photos, but if you truly hate them, then I offer a reshoot at no additional cost. I want my clients to love their photos.
I don't know what to wear?!?
I truly think this is the worst thing about having photos done, that and getting ready before. I can't help you get ready before, but I can help you choose your outfits. All clients that book have exclusive access to our wardrobe. I can either dress you from our wardrobe (mostly for the ladies) or I can help you find the perfect outfits from your favorite store.
What does the Session fee include?
The session fee includes my time for each session which include travel, light retouching of images for your gallery and any purchases made to make your session fresh and unique. (I am always buying dresses and new props)
