How far in advance should I book my session? 
It is advisable to book as early as possible, as I only have a limited amount of sessions available each month and they tend to sell out quickly. However, if you need something last-minute, I might still be able to help you. Just send me a message using the contact form or give me a call. 

How do we go about securing our session? 
Once you are ready to book a session, we can discuss dates over the phone or by e-mail. As soon as we have agreed on a date and time, I will send you a contract and a questionnaire. Once the non-refundable retainer fee of $200 is paid, your date will be secured. 

Can I request specific photos to be taken? (For example grandchildren/grandparents, kids alone, etc)
Yes! I love hearing your requests and ideas, and I always do my best to honor and/or incorporate them.

Can our pets be a part of our photos?
Absolutely! This is a pet-friendly business and you are free to include up to two pets in your photos. Contact me if you want photos of just your pet(s), or want to include more than two pets. 

Do you charge an extra fee for creative  or additional edits? Examples: My kids have a temporary tattoo that needs to be removed/ I want my double chin to be removed / I want my photo(s) to include a dinosaur chasing me.
I carefully hand-edit every image I deliver. Things such as correction of skin tones, removal of blemishes, and further basic edits of unavoidable and temporary  "problems" (cuts, bruises, etc.) are included in the session fee. Edits that go beyond this take time and effort, which is why I charge anywhere from $5 to $25 per image for additional retouching requests. The fee is determined by the amount of time necessary to make the changes.
