What forms of payment do you accept?
I accept cash, check, or I can invoice you with Square. Square and PayPal payment incur a 3% up-charge.
Do you offer any discounts?
Yes! For repeat clients I offer a 5% discount. If you refer me to a friend and they book a session, you can get 10% off your next session with me!
What should we wear?
The most important thing is that you are comfortable! As far as colors and patterns, what I find works best is one family member in a pattern and then the rest of the family in colors pulled from that pattern. I also love classic looks. Jeans with solid color tops and then some accessories with a bright pop to pull it all together! Think white and navy blue shirts and jeans for everyone and then a little girl in a magenta dress or with a magenta scarf! Try to steer clear of fluorescent colors or anything too, too bright as they can cast a color shadow on your face or the faces of your family members. Remember the basic warm and cool color rules....if you are a warm (yellowish skin undertones) consider pale or soft colors or earth tones; if you are cool (blueish skin undertones) consider jewel tones or pastels!
My husband HATES having pictures taken, what can I do to make him less stressed out?
Listen, I'm a wife and a mom. I've had countless photo sessions with my husband and he hates having them done just as much as every other man. Here's the thing....don't freak out about THEIR stressed out behavior OR the kids behavior because it just makes it worse. It's ok if the kids are running around. Lots of the pictures I love the most from sessions come from them running around from place to place and me just talking and interacting with them. If I need them for a group shot, I will round them up. The more relaxed you are, the more relaxed the kids AND your husband will be.
How long will it take to get my pictures?
Most sessions are edited and delivered to you within 1 week. There are times it may take up to 2 weeks (especially during holiday seasons), but I will always keep you informed of my progress. All pictures are uploaded for digital download via Pixie Set.
Will our pictures appear on Facebook or your website?
Yes! As stated in the print release you will receive, I reserve all rights to share your pictures on my business sites.
