What should I know before I book my session?

1. Are photos included in the cost of the session?

I want to give you the flexibility to be able to create the photo package that best suits your needs. To accomplish this, I do not include photos in the initial cost of the session. The images from your session are available to purchase at a rate of $10 per edited, high resolution digital image.

If the numbers start to add up, you can also ask for my All Inclusive Package, which includes all of the "keeper" photos from the session delivered as edited, high resolution digital images for $375. If you go with this package, you'll receive at least 60 images from your session, with blurry photos, repetitive photos, test shots, and photos with blinking/awkward faces taken out.

2. How much are the photos edited?

All photos are retouched to ensure correct brightness, contrast, and color, and may be cropped or straightened. As needed, I also get rid of any distracting details in the background of the photos, and clear up blemishes, specks or stains on clothes, stray hairs, baby drool, flaky skin, etc. 

3. How are my photos chosen and delivered?

After your session, I will upload a selection of images from your session to an online gallery, where you can pick out the images that you want to purchase through an online ordering system. From there, I send you an invoice for the photos you've purchased, and get to work on editing the images you've ordered. Then, I upload the finished, edited, high resolution JPG images to the same online gallery, where you can download the photos, share them with friends and family, and print them from any print vendor of your choice! A print release is included with all photos, so you do not have to pay a higher cost to order your prints through me.
