Q: Where are you located? Where will the session take place?
I am located in Orange County, California. Your session will take place at a location of your choice depending upon the overall theme of your styled session. I am here to help you choose the best location to set the scene for your story. We are fortunate to have exceptional weather here, so shooting outside, in the natural light is perfect!
Q: How long does a photo session last?
That depends on YOU and your specific session type. Most photography sessions require 1-2 hours.
Q: What is included in the session fee?
The photography session fee includes a pre-session consultation with me, preferably in person, or over the phone to plan your UNIQUE photography experience, the 60-90 minute styled session, the collection of some props & materials needed to tell the story, 20-40 hand retouched and artistically enhanced digital files presented in an online gallery to view and purchase products.
Q: What can I expect during the consultation session?
During the consultation we will discuss the overall theme and concept you have about your child’s session. We will begin to CREATE your child’s photographic story. We will discuss what your child will be wearing during the session and if props or other items are needed to bring YOUR story to life. We will create a story board or pin board for visual reference.
PLEASE NOTE: ALL ABOUT ME sessions are highly specialized and usually need up to 2 weeks of planning time! These storytelling sessions come to life best when we have ideal time to plan out our vision. I use a custom story board & pin board on Pinterest to gather ideas. I work with a professional stylist to gather props & wardrobe to enhance the overall look of the session. I absolutely love these sessions and make them quite the EXPERIENCE for you.
Q: When is the best time to shoot my_______?
All ABOUT ME… sessions are best photographed after your child has turned TWO.
JUST ME… sessions are best photographed ANYTIME.
Q: What types of session collections do you have available?
I have 2 collections available that include my most favorite and popular products as well as digital files. Session collections are created by you based on your needs.
Each client is considered special and INDIVIDUAL to me! That being said, each collection can be tailored to meet your specific needs. Items available to you include: fine-art archival prints, boutique books and albums, framed collections, & gallery wrapped canvas art work.
Please call or e-mail me to request a full price menu including collections and a la carte items.
Q: What should I wear and or bring to my photo session?
Depending upon our pre-session consultation and what we have discussed as far as the wardrobe and styling, YOU will only need to bring a positive attitude to your photography session. On second thought… maybe some snacks, a hair brush, your child’s favorite toy or book, and a change of clothing.
Q: Is a deposit required to book a session?
The session fee must be paid in full to reserve your session date. You will be sent an invoice by e-mail once we have confirmed the date and availability for your session. ***PLEASE NOTE… I only accept a LIMITED number of sessions per month. Sessions tend to fill up quickly and I am usually booked 2-4 weeks in advance.
Q: What types of payment do you accept?
I accept payment through PayPal and by check. The session price is available on the investment page and is non negotiable. Thank you for your understanding. All boutique products are subject to sales tax.
Q: When will my photos be ready? How do I see them?
Approximately 2 weeks after your session I will create an online photo gallery for you to view and select your images. If you prefer, we can meet in person to view your images in a slide show format that I have created for you. You can make your selections on the day we meet. You can purchase your products or collections in person that day, or if you need more time, your photos will be available to you through the online gallery for 2 more weeks to view and purchase products.
