Frequently Asked Questions


1.  Can I have all the digital images from the shoot?

We are a full service studio and we believe that just offering our clients a disk of images is an incomplete service. Rather than having our clients leave with a disk that they have no idea what to do with, we choose to offer them a complete experience and have them walk away with beautiful art for their homes and families. With that said, you will receive the digital high res file of every image that you purchase watermark free. We also offer you a personal online web gallery included with purchase that will hold all of the images you’ve purchased, which can be sent to friends and family.


2.  Do you post the images on your website?

I will take images of you that you will want to showcase and share with everyone. With that said, We only post photos on the internet of clients who have given us written permission. Your photos are kept safe and private with us unless you tell us otherwise. No images will ever be displayed without your expressed permission. 


3. Do you offer makeup/hair for the shoot?

Not only do we offer it, we require it! We want to offer our clients a full experience complete with hair and makeup! We actually tell our clients, you are going to look so good when you leave it is a perfect day to go out with friends on the town and have a girls night. Better yet, feel free to bring with with you to the shoot! 


4. Can I bring someone with me to the shoot? 

Absolutely, Feel free to bring as many people as you want! The shoot is about you, so we will focus on your for the first 3/4 of the shoot and then towards the end of the shoot we can grab photos of you with whomever you would like. Another option we offer is to split the shoot between you and another person. This allows for 1 session fee that can be split in half. What you purchase at the end is still entirely up to you and will not be combined, so each of you can go home with a beautiful folio of your own! 


5. Where do the shoots take place?

There are actually quite a few options when it comes to this question. We partner with some really awesome local businesses and can rent out their studio space for the shoot if you would like. We can also do the shoot at a location of your choosing, both outside or inside. No matter what the location, I am confident that we can create beautiful photographs together!
