Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of sessions/services do you offer? I offer a variety of options to capture every part of the most memorable moments in your life, so that you don't have to; including Maternity sessions, Birth photography, Newborn lifestyle and Fresh 48 sessions. Family and children portraits, Senior portraits, engagement and anniversary sessions, Military homecomings, and boudoir photography.
Is my booking fee separate from my session fee? Good question! For Collections 1, 2, and 3, your booking fee is a separate fee from your session fee, and must be paid in order to book your session. However, if you are a birth client your booking fee is just 50% of your session fee; the other 50% of your session fee can be paid any time before your due date.
Do you have a studio? No, at the moment I do not have a studio, but I am activity searching for a space to call my own! Check back soon for more details on when I will have studio dates available. (Studio session will include Boudoir, Children's portraits, and Newborn sessions).
How do I book my session? Book your consultation and session any time by contacting me by email, phone, or through social media! Contact information can be found under the "Contact" tab. Once we know when and where your session will take place, you can pay your session fee and book your session here.
What area do you cover? I primarily photograph models and families in the Broomfield, and greater Denver area. With that being said, I can travel anywhere, for almost any session. All travel within 5 miles of my 80020 location is free of charge. For birth photography, I normally travel up to 30 minutes outside of my location.
Do you charge for travel? Yes, although travel expenses are included in all sessions for up to 5 miles of my location and up to $5.00 for any parking fees, If you would like a location that is a bit of a drive, a fee of $0.50 per mile does apply to your total due. There is no travel charge for any Birth or Newborn sessions.
Do you have suggestions for a location? Yes! I can recommend a fair amount of parks, trail heads, and areas that will tailor to almost any session. Some popular areas include: Red Rocks Amphitheater, Chatfield Botanic Gardens, Lakewood Heritage Center, and Hildebrand Ranch Park.
What is your turn around time? Usually 7-10 days. Depending on the time of year, this may be shorter or longer.
How many images will I receive? It depends! For each session, X amount of images are included in your package but you may purchase more or all of your photos! Check under the 'Pricing' tab to find out how many images are included in each Collection. If you are a Birth client, you will receive access all of your most precious photos. usually 75-150 images.
How much do you charge for extra images? For time and work spent on editing additional photos, there is a charge of $4.00 per additional image.
What is your availability like? I am usually very flexible with date and times for consultations and sessions; including during the weekday. Though, like many photographers, I work primarily on the weekends so my slots fill up quickly.
When should I book my session? I can book sessions up to 6 months in advance, though most clients book around 2-4 weeks in advance. Maternity sessions - Every woman is different and every pregnancy is different, so book your session whenever you feel most comfortable. You want your bump to be big and beautifully round, but not so big that you are uncomfortable. My recommendation is to book your session to take place between 30 and 37 weeks gestation. If you are curious as to when you should book your birth with me, the earlier the better, but no later than 35 weeks gestation.
Do you have props? I do not use props for most of my sessions. However, I do normally have a blanket for outdoor sessions, and some different colored chairs. Of course, you are always welcome to bring along anything you would like photographed. I do have a variety of wraps, blankets and baskets for Newborn sessions.
How will I receive my images? All clients will receive an email when their photos are ready. This email will have a link to a gallery of your images, as well as instructions on how to choose your images.
Can I print my images myself? Yes! As stated in my contract, we share client/photographer rights. As a client you will have unlimited, however non-exclusive, rights to your images. You may print them, or do with them whatever you wish! If you should find your self needing a print release, I will be sure to get one to you!
