Frequently Asked Questions
Can I order prints through you?
Yes! If you wish to order prints you can do so through your private online gallery. The prints and any other item you purchase will be made by Bay Photo Lab. The prints are professional grade.
What is the best way to get in touch?
Please fill out my contact form under the tab "Contact" on my website to best get in contact with me!
Do you do group sessions?
I am happy to take pictures of groups such as families, best friends, etc. If the group you have in mind doesn't fit into the packages offered, please feel free to email me!
Is there a retainer fee?
Yes, in order to officially book the session, I do require a non-refundable retainer fee. My retainer fee is 30% of the total session fee. Your session is not considered officially booked until the retainer fee is paid.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Currently, I accept payment by credit card or bank transfer through a secure system in Honeybook. Honeybook is my client management software that is widely used by professional photogrpahers and other businesses.
How much does a session cost?
Pricing varies by the session package. Please refer to the info page on my website!
Do you do studio photoshoots? Do you have studio backdrops and other equipment?
Nope! I am an on location photographer (parks, offices, fields, street, urban, etc.). I love shooting in natural light, as I think it gives the most realistic and natural looking photos. If you are looking for someone with studio equipment, then I am not your girl!
Do you do sessions indoors?
I typically do not since I am a natural light and outdoors photographer. I advise that if we are doing an indoor session, that it should be done in a natural lit room (i.e. large windows, and at a sunny time of day). Other than that, it is simply not my genre of photography.
But don't ALL photographers own studio equipment and backdrops?
This is a huge misconception. Not all professional photographers, like myself, own studio equipment and backdrops. It all comes down to the photographer's style of photography. Some are dedicated to studio photography, while others like me are dedicated to natural light and outdoors photoography. Some do both! So if your vision for your session is with a backdrop, a studio photographer will be your style of photographer and vice versa!
Why do I have to sign a contract?
Any and every professional photographer requires a contract for their photography services, wether the service is free or paid. The contract is for the benefit of both parties. This helps communicate and lay out all expectations for the services provided, that way the client doesn't feel blindsided about anything.
Do you travel outside of the greater Phoenix area for photoshoots?
I can! I am happy to travel within a reasonable distance from Phoenix. Places I am willing to travel to include Sedona, Flagstaff, and Prescott. Keep in mind that I will require a higher fee for traveling outside of the greater Phoenix area, and can vary by location how much more it would be. I am always happy to discuss this to make sure your vision can come to life!
