SESSION INFO:

 

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE SESSION'S FEE?

All portrait sessions include: up to 90 minutes of photography session on location within 50 miles of Truckee, CA. Session fee covers the photographer's time and talent photographing your family and editing images that are presented to you during your reveal session. Unless otherwise specified, prints, digital files, wall art, albums and keepsake print boxes are not included in your session's fee and are available for purchase purchased after your session. 

 

BEFORE YOUR SESSION:

Call me to schedule your photo session! Once we’ve decided on a day for the session, we'll talk about you and your family and the photographs that you'd like to capture. We'll also discuss location and clothing choices and I'll answer any questions you might have. Your preferred date will be reserved in my calendar for you for 3 days.

During that period, your session fee must be received in order to confirm your session date. I will send you an electronic agreement and a link to pay your deposit.

 

DURING YOUR SESSION:

Please arrive 10 minutes early to let me say hello!

Sessions typically last 1,5-2 hours and have a very informal atmosphere. 

There will be a time for several outfit changes and we may drive to a couple different locations if they are close by. 

 

AFTER YOUR SESSION:

Within a few days of your session, I will invite you to my studio to present all the photographs I've captured.  

We'll plan the best ways to have your photographs printed: whether it is as coffee table album or a collage display on your walls or in a handmade heirloom print box.

Your final collection will consist of your favorite photographs that have been artfully edited, printed and are ready to display in your home.

WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR TO THE PHOTO SESSION?

See this blog post for some general rules of choosing your photo session outfit

 


WHAT IF IT IS RAINING ON THE DAY OF MY PHOTO SESSION?

Generally, if it is just a light mist, we will proceed with the session. Bring along an umbrella just in case! Typically, I take couples inside local coffee shops, under awnings etc. until the rain passes. However, in the case of families with small kids and heavy downpours we will re-schedule the session for another time. Despite what some people may think, cloudy days are fantastic for photos! 

 


HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE MY PHOTOS?

Within 4-7 days of your session, I will invite you to my studio or will come to your home to present the photographs I've captured. We'll plan the best ways to have your photographs printed: whether it is on your walls or in a coffee table album or in a handmade heirloom print box. Your final collection will consist of your favorite photographs that have been artfully edited, printed and are ready to display in your home. Printed albums take 2 weeks after you make a selection of images for the album and an additional 1-2 weeks to print & ship after you approve the layout. 

 


WHAT KIND OF CAMERAS DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH WITH?

I use Canon professional gear and continually invest in new and innovative equipment to provide my clients with the best image quality possible. I always have a backup equipment at each shooting. My favorite is a full frame Canon 5D Mark IV camera and prime Canon EF 35mm f/1.4 II USM Lens.
