Where do I park when I visit your studio?
There is plenty of on-street metered parking on 25th Street. Meters are in effect 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Cost is $.50/hour. Meters take coins or credit cards.
How much time should I allow for my session?
You should allow at least one hour for headshots, and 90 minutes for portraits. If we are providing professional makeup, that process usually takes about 40-45 minutes.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are more than 30 minutes late to your session I reserve the right to reschedule it.
What should I wear for my photo session?
Once your appointment is booked and deposit received, I’ll send you detailed instructions on hair, makeup and attire.
How many photos will I receive from my session?
For most headshot sessions, you’ll receive between 12-15 preliminary selections. Once you pick your final 3-5, I will perform general retouching (exposure, cropping, blemish removal, etc.) and provide the digital files for you to download. Portrait and vintage glamour packages include up to 10 final retouched images.
PLEASE NOTE: For advanced retouching (changing background color, removing objects, eliminating unruly hair, etc.) there will be an additional charge. I’ll let you know the cost before I perform the extra work.
How will I receive my photos?
You’ll receive the preliminary images via link to a client gallery. Once you select your final photos you’ll be able to access them in the same gallery.
Can I get prints from my photo session?
Yes! You can order prints in a variety of sizes and finished directly from the client gallery. I review all orders before they are sent off to a professional lab, and shipped directly to you.
What types of payment do you accept?
I process all invoices via Square, which means I can accept debit or credit cards, personal checks or cash.
I know you require a 50% deposit when the session is booked. When is the balance due?
I will send the final invoice when I send you the preliminary selections. Payment is due on receipt. Images will not be released until payment is received.
Can I bring my husband/mother/kids or other guests?
I’d prefer that you come by yourself. I don’t have a separate waiting area, which means any additional people will be seated just a few feet away from where we are shooting. Additionally, there is a lot of lighting and other equipment in the studio that can be knocked over or damaged if there are too many people around.
