HOW DOES THE PAYMENT PROCESS WORK?
When you book me, upon signing the contract, you are required to pay the booking retainer via email transfer or paypal (with the fees covered please) or cash, which is 50% of which ever package you choose. The rest of the balance has to be paid the day of the session.
WHAT TIME WILL OUR SESSION BE AT?
I typically shoot around 2 hours before sunset when the light is warm, soft and most ideal. This is to provide you with the photos that you are expecting based on my portfolio and when I am able to produce my best work for you.
DO YOU PICK THE LOCATION OR DO WE?
After meeting with your family, I will find the best location that matches your family's lifestyle. Light is a huge influencer as far as locations go, it can make or break a session so I will go out scouting a few days prior to track the light and find the best possible spot. I scout constantly and have a few secret spots always on deck.
This is a very common concern and one I, myself had when I had my own family photos taken when my kids were just little. The way I look at this now, is that it is only one evening. I try to work as efficiently as possible in order to keep the wee ones entertained as well as busy so there is no time for them to think about being tired. I will always suggest trying to squeeze in a nap if they are past that stage or adding another in the day of the shoot to make up for the possibility of staying up a bit past bed time.
