Frequently Asked Questions
I see you're based out of Fremont, CA. Do you travel to other locations/destinations?
That would be a BIG yes! All photo sessions include a 30-mile (roundtrip) radius. If you're located outside of this area a charge of .60 cents per mile will be added to the final balance of your session. This will be discussed upon inquiry for destination events or weddings where air travel is involved.
Where do you do the majority of your photo sessions?
I'm a huge environmental portrait photographer. This means we will be shooting in some beautiful places to enhance your photos' natural feel and look. Here is a list of some of my favorite places to shoot around the area:
How will I receive my photos?
I will make you a beautiful online digital album and the link will be emailed directly to you. From this album, you can download images and even choose to have them printed, framed, etc from the storefront. (Printed photos are not included in packages) You can also choose (for an additional fee) to have your images put on a thumb drive which will include both high and low-resolution photos.
Do your retouch/edit the photos?
Once I finish your photo session my work has just begun! I will select and edit your photos to my style. Think warm and dreamy with a vintage twist! If you have any blemishes or temporary things that take away from the photos I will edit those out. I do not body alter, so please do not ask me to make you look thinner, give you longer legs, etc... you are BEAUTIFUL the way you are!
How soon will I get the photos?
My goal is to have your album complete and to you in 1-2 weeks. If for some reason I'm running behind or another matter comes up I will contact you. Weddings or other larger events are general 4-6 weeks.
How do I book you?
If you'd like to book a session simply contact me! To expedite the process you can click on the "inquire" icon located in the lower right-hand corner of my site. This will take you through a few questions which will help me when booking your session.
How do I pay you?
Once we've set a date you will need to pay a 50% non-refundable retainer to hold and confirm the date. I will send over an invoice for the project and you can pay the retainer via credit card. If you'd like, I also accept Venmo & Zelle for your deposit, just let me know. The final payment is due the actual day of the shoot and can be paid by cash, check, Venmo, Zelle, or credit card.
What should I/we wear?
These images are about you and your family. Don't wear distracting clothing - logo shirts, bold crazy patterns, etc take away from you! Go with nice neutral colors, earth tones, or pastels. I recommend you choose women's attire first and use that as the foundation and choose other clothing based on that.
