I am an on location photographer, meaning that I travel to you, at a mutually agreed upon location. This could be in your own home, a nearby park, or another interesting location of your choice that is suitable for photography. Newborn sessions can take place in your hospital room and in your home. Senior, engagement, pet and family photo sessions could take place in a variety of locations. We can pick a location that is convenient for you and that can also help tell your story or enhance the message behind your photos. I do not photograph in a traditional studio.
The word photography comes from the Greek root words for "light" and "drawing". Light is an essential element in creating any photograph. Light is Light. I have experience using natural light as well as studio lighting techniques. For outdoor sessions, depending on the time of year, there may be certain times of the day and locations that are better suited than others.
booking and payment
You can use the "Book a Session" tool to request a specific service, date, and time. which I will confirm with you. I will send you an electronic invoice via PayPal.
As soon as your session fee is paid, then your session date and time are booked!
refunds and cancellation policy
If for any reason, you need to cancel your session and re-book, please let me know as soon as possible. If the weather the day of will affect the photo shoot, we will reschedule to the next best available day. There is no refund for session fees, however if your session needs to be rescheduled, the session fee will go towards the next scheduled session. After the second cancellation, there is a $25 reschedule fee.
You can expect to see your finished images within two weeks following your photo session (usually much sooner though). All sessions come with an online gallery where oyu can download web-friendly images. I also set up an ordering gallery through the photographer's program on www.mpix.com. This is my preferred online lab. I strongly recommend using my professional lab for images larger than 11x14. You may share your images on your social media pages- please show me the love and give me proper credit!
