FAQs and Topics of Discussion
Do you shoot weddings?
I do not. I've done a few weddings but have discovered they are not my "niche". I do shoot engagement session, though!
What if it rains or is overcast on our session date?
Welcome to Florida, ha! It's hard to get away from that here, especially in the summer. While I'd love for every golden hour to be, well, golden, I cannot promise that! We WILL shoot in overcast, & in SOME circumstances, even a LITTLE drizzle. However, I will not shoot in rain, and we'll have to reschedule our session.
Do you use props? Can I bring my own?
I used to be all for it... but my vision has changed a bit. I don't mind if you bring a special memento or a toy for a child- we can talk about that- but we don't want to "stage" sessions. The more props, the more distractions. Seniors, Birthday shoots, & Christmas Sessions may be a partial exception to this. Let's chat.
Do you shoot other types of events like parties, picnics, etc.?
I do not. I really am just not an event photographer. Found my niche & stickin' to it. :)
How do I get my photos?
I'll email you your very own gallery to log into. As soon as you get it, you can download the photos & they're yours!
Can I order prints from you?
I'm sorry, but that's not something I offer at this time. I will include in your gallery some suuuuper valuable printing tips & recommendations. This includes ordering prints/canvases/etc. through reputable printing companies. It makes a HUGE difference & reflects the work put into the image.
What if my child doesn't want to have their photo taken, won't sit still or won't behave?
While I can't guarantee your kiddo will love the time spent at your shoot, I will do my very best to capture a smile- even if no-one else is! Some of the best photos are ones of the kiddos being tickled, comforted, connected with, and letting them just be themselves. I never look for perfection... just connection. And I always offer encouragement- which means candy. (with your permission, of course). Now, that being said- if they're not feeling well, we can reschedule.
How do I lock in my session?
A $50 non-refundable deposit will be due within 3 business days of scheduling. Once paid, that'll seal the deal! You're in!
Why the "non-refundable" deposit?
This is a good topic, but yeah, it can be kinda awkward... See, this business is an important part of my & my fam's livelihood. Unfortunately, with how popular photography has become, it can be seen as a hobby or "just" a side-job. For me, it's neither of those. It can become "easy" for people to cancel, not realizing that it's an important part of life for us, not to mention something I have a passion for & truly have poured so much into. Cancellations not only affect me & my family, but also families that could have gotten that appointment. Space is limited, so non-refundable deposits help reduce the risk of cancellation. Hope that clears things up! Sorry for the preachin', ha!
My child's bedtime is earlier than the session time you offer. Can I make it earlier?
I totally get that bedtimes are important for the littles! But I stick to the time of day that is best for my style of photography. If I make exceptions or compromises in almost any area of my work, I'll end up feeling obligated to do that for everyone that asks, and next thing ya know, my work won't really look like, well, my work. Gotta stay to true LMAC!
