Where are you located?
Woodbridge, Virginia! I photograph all over Northern Virginia and the Washington DC area as well.
What is included in a session?
A regular portrait session includes up to 2 hours of my time, at a previously agreed upon location, and my time editing/designing/prepping your images. The length of the session depends on what type it is, for example, seniors usually take up the full 2 hours whereas family sessions are only about 45 minutes to an hour. All prints, canvas, albums, etc are purchased separately.
Do you offer digital files?
Yes! You can purchase the whole digital collection, which will have all the edited images on a USB drive.
What should I wear?
Just make sure your outfit suits your personal style and personality. Choose colors that you love, solids work best in photographs though. Nothing too tight, or baggy either. Don’t forget to accessorize!
What should I bring?
Bring anything that may represent you, your relationships, activities etc.
Pets are welcome, but I ask that you bring someone to hold them when they’re not being photographed, and treats or their favorite toy for me to help get their attention.
How long until we receive our photos?
About 2 weeks after your session. Sometimes less.
What’s your style?
My style is colorful, authentic, and fun. We will do some posed shots, but also some more organic, natural shots too.
What are your prices?
Wedding packages start at $1800.
Portrait Sessions are $200.
Products for portrait sessions are all purchased separately.
I’m working with a budget, do you offer discounts?
Throughout the year, we may offer some specials, and military families receive a 10% discount on products(be sure to let me know you’re in the military when you order), but aside from those, we don’t offer discounts. We do however, offer a payment plan!
I’m not a good poser, do you help?
Absolutely! That’s what I do. Very few people in the world are super confident in front of the camera. We will spend some time at the beginning of the session loosening up a bit. I will guide you and help you throughout the entire session.
What if my kids don’t behave?
It happens! No worries, I have lots of patience, and we’ll do our very best. Bring snacks etc for during the session, and try to avoid being overly critical of their behavior during our time because they often respond negatively to those types of vibes. I’m confident we’ll have some winning shots for you.
Do we see ALL of the photos?
Nope. I remove any duplicate shots, blinks, “unready” faces, missed focus shots, flash misfires etc. You will have lots of variety and plenty of photos.
How many photos will we receive?
It depends on how long we are shooting together. I don’t commit to a certain number, but I have no doubt that you will receive more than enough photos during our time together.
How far in advance do we need to book?
For portrait sessions, about a month in advance will work. Weddings need to be booked asap, at least 6 months in advance, but don’t let that stop you from contacting me if your wedding is sooner than that, there’s always a chance!
Do you have a payment plan?
Sure do! If you’re interested in a payment plan, just let us know and we’ll send it over. You pick your payments, and payment dates. Easy peasy.
