frequently asked questions

How much do you charge?

The prices for my most popular services are listed on my website. However, you can contact me to chat pricing for your specific type of session. 

When will I get my gallery?

Your digital gallery will pop into your inbox within two weeks of your portrait session. I deliver wedding photos within six weeks. 

Will you travel to me?

Absolutely! I love following my clients to any location. I simply add a teeny travel fee for locations outside of the Rochester area. If I need to drive or fly a longer distance, I'll add travel costs to your final invoice. 

Can I bring my dog?

Yes! As long as your furry friend is well-behaved and friendly, you are welcome to bring them along to your session. All I ask is that you give me a heads up, so I can plan with your dog in mind.

Do you photograph maternity sessions, events, etc.?

You bet I do! My most popular services have galleries on my website, but I'm available for all sorts of sessions. If you have something in mind, send me an email! In the event that I'm not a good fit for what you are looking for, I'm happy to refer you to another photographer. 

What if I'm awkward in front of the camera?

Let me put your mind at ease. I understand how intimidating being photographed can be. No matter how awkward you feel in front of the camera, I will help you feel comfortable. I will chat with you, make you laugh, and give you prompts to get your mind off the lens pointing in your direction. Helping my clients feel relaxed is one of my biggest strengths. Trust me on this one. 

What if it rains the day of my session?

If mama nature is not cooperating the day of your session, we will talk about rescheduling. I will keep your deposit, and we can choose another date that works for you! 

What should I wear for my session?

My immediate answer to this question is to wear anything that makes you feel like your most fabulous self! I want all of my clients to feel comfortable and confident. If you're doing a family or couple's session, coordinate your outfits without being matchy matchy. Wear something you can comfortably move in, since we'll be on the go the whole time. And of course, I am happy to chat more about your outfit once you're all booked!
