Q: WHERE WILL MY SESSION TAKE PLACE?
A: I have an awesome home studio located in Cape Coral, FL. If studio shots are not your thing, we can totally go natural light at many of the beautiful locations across southwest Florida. It’s super difficult to schedule anything during the rainy season, because sessions will take place in the evening. I recommend waiting for the mostly hassle free weather once it has passed. If you don’t want to wait, we will have to choose some flexible dates, just in case.
Q: HOW MANY IMAGES WILL I GET?
A: Each session type is different, and therefore images edited will vary for everyone. But, don’t worry, you will have plenty to choose from!
Q: HOW LONG IS A SESSION?
A: Session lengths vary, they can last from a couple hours (sessions without hair and makeup) to 6 hours. Time really depends on how many outfit changes, styling, chat/brain breaks (important for everyone, not just kiddos!). My goal is to get images you love, and sometimes that takes a little time.
Q: WHEN ARE YOUR SESSIONS SCHEDULED?
A: I schedule most sessions 9am, Monday through Friday. Some exceptions can be made, but as a rule, most every session is scheduled this way. If you want to schedule a session but don’t generally have weekdays available, I always suggest taking a Friday off – for one, you’ll get a long weekend, and two you will be feeling confident and looking gorgeous, so you can plan a date night after!
Q: WHAT IS A CONSULT, HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
A: When you decide to book your session, first we will start with a consult. This let’s me get to know you or your kiddos and we get to discuss how you want to be photographed. We will talk about what to wear, what to bring, styles you love, hair and makeup, etc. Usually they are pretty quick, 30-45 minutes, and I like to schedule them at your favorite coffee house. If meeting in person isn’t an option, I’d be happy to do a video or phone consult. It’s important to note that your session fee is due at the consult.
Q: WHAT IS A REVEAL, CAN’T I JUST VIEW A GALLERY?
A: The reveal is the most exciting part – you get to see all your beautiful images! This usually takes place about a week from your session, and you’ll come to the studio, view your images and buy them in a super laid back environment. (No pressure, honest!) I fully believe in this method because I want you to have only the images that speak to your heart and prepaying for images can lead to disappointment. Plus, I truly pour everything I have into each portrait, and each reveal day is like Christmas morning for me, seeing your expressions as you view your photographs.
My session fees vary based on what kind of shoot you are needing. When you book a session with me, you’ll pay a low session fee, for general portraits it is $125. That fee covers your consult (I’ll get to that in a minute!) your professional hair and make-up, your session and your reveal date. Other session fees vary and include different things, so be sure to be specific on your needs so I can recommend the right one for you.
Q: IF I DON’T WANT HAIR AND MAKEUP, CAN I GET A DISCOUNT?
A: I highly recommend treating yourself or making your daughter feel special (a little blush, maybe?) and taking advantage of the Hair/MUA. If you do not want those services, it is totally ok, but no discount will be given on the session fee.
Q: WHAT ARE YOUR PACKAGE PRICES?
A: They vary for different sessions. For general portrait sessions, package prices start at $249 and include retouching, a 7×10 print of each image as well as a high resolution digital version, which you can make copies and gifts from.
