  • What happens if the weather is bad on our session date and time?

  • What’s your cancellation policy?
    All sessions, weddings and events are booked with a 25% nonrefundable retainer. Commercial jobs will be handled separately per their contract agreemnts. Last-minute cancellations will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis for a partial refund (i.e. medical emergencies).
  • What should I wear?
    I recommend avoiding busy patterns (unless this is a significant part of your self-expression) and any large, prominent logos. Family portraits work best when people coordinate the same 2-3 colors. Pastels, neutrals and jewel tones typically work best. Take the weather and your comfort into consideration. I was you to feel good in what you're wearing! You're welcome to send me what you plan on wearing and I can give you feedback.

    Outfit changes are always welcome. Pricing is not affected by this, just be sure to account for the time needed to change. Depending on the location, public bathrooms may not be available to change your clothes.

    No. All my packages include the full-resolution digital images that are print-ready. You can order prints directly from your delivered gallery page as well.
