Let’s talk about photography for your next event.
Thanks for stopping by, please take a look around . . . enjoy some of my favorite photos I have included in my portfolio. I am always available to answer any questions you may have, and to help. I have composed a list of the most commonly asked questions below. Also be sure to check out my blog, it is full of adorable sessions for you to peruse.
Do you have an office?
Yes, my home studio is located in Acworth, GA, about 45 minutes outside of Atlanta, and my hours are by appointment only. Please submit a contact form to schedule an appointment.
Is this your full time job?
Well, not counting my two kids (and my husband), yes, this is what I love to do and all that I do.
Do you charge for travel?
Travel fees will depend on the distance from Acworth and it’s surrounding areas. There is no travel fee for anything within an hour of Acworth, GA.
How long will it be before my images are ready?
Sessions typically average 3 weeks to edit during peek shooting seasons (spring and fall). During non peek seasons it averages 2 weeks for editing. You have the option to pay an additional $100 to any session fee to rush your editing to be completed within 3 business days. Your session would be moved ahead in my editing schedule. This also depends on calendar availability so check with Chi.
How will we see our images?
Once your images are edited, you'll receive an email with a link to preview your images and share with friends and family. No one can access that gallery unless you send them the link. Depending on your session type and purchase, a dvd or flash drive will be mailed to you once you receive your gallery viewing email. Any editing requests that require extensive editing is priced separately.
Can we print from the DVD and Flash Drive?
Yes, all images are high-resolution Jpegs with no watermarks. They are yours for your own personal use and come with a Client Print Release. Images can not be altered without prior approval. Any commercial use requires prior approval or purchase of a commerical print release.
How long do you store my images?
I never want to delete your images, but I typically store them for 2 years.
What kind of equipment do you use?
I use professional Canon digital SLR bodies, Canon professional speedlights and Canon lenses. These are Canon’s finest professional lenses. And yes, I have backup equipment.
When is it best to schedule our portraits?
In order to have time to properly plan for your session, these are the suggested times to schedule. Newborn sessions should be scheduled by your second trimester. Birthday and Family sessions should be scheduled 3 months in advance. Fall and Spring sessions always fill the calendar first so planning in advance is highly recommended.
What is your payment policy?
I ask for a non-refundable $100 retainer and a signed contract to book a newborn session. Event sessions like birthday parties require $100 non-refundable retainer. All other sessions require a non-refundable $25 retainer and a signed contract to hold your date. The balance of your contract is due the day of your session. I accept all payment methods. Contracts and retainers are due within 48 hours of booking to hold your date and session rate.
