What is your style?
My style is classic, clean, and simple. With studio styled sessions, I prefer to use a mostly neutral scene with a small pop of color. I use mostly muted tones and my props reflect my style. If you like what you see on my website, we will definitely be a good match!
What if it is rainy on the day of my session?
Outdoor locations will need to be rescheduled if it is rainy.
Does the age of my child effect the shoot?
Yes, children up to three years of age (not including new babies) are the most challenging to photograph. Challenging, but still fun! These shoots tend to be more photo-journalistic than posed.
What if my child is sick?
If your child is sick, please reschedule! Sick children do not photograph well. They are usually more grumpy than usual and less willing to do what is asked. It isn't uncommon to reschedule shoots due to sickness or weather! Children (and weather for that matter) are unpredictable and being a child's photographer means that I am FLEXIBLE! If you want the most from your shoot, it's best to wait for the perfect day!
RAW of JPEG?
I always shoot in RAW.
When can I expect to see my photos?
Your photos will be uploaded to an on-line gallery within two weeks of your shoot (usually sooner). I will let you know as soon as they are ready to view! You can view your images through a slideshow and then directly download them to your computer!
What equipment do you use?
I shoot with a Nikon d800. I have an 85mm f/1.8G lens and a 50mm f/1.4D lens. I use natural light and do all of my editing on photoshop CS6.
Where should I print my high-res images?
My first recommendation is to, of course, order through my professional printer. They do a beautiful job and there is a noticeable difference between printing with a professional printer and printing through someone else.
My second recommendation is to print through mpix.com. I don't recommend printing at places like Walmart/Walgreens/etc. The reason why is because the quality is far below what you can get at the other two places. They don't care where the picture crops off and they don't take the time to ask you where you want it cropped off. They aren't professional, they are just fast. If you are paying for professional photography and paying the price to get those digital files, you should definitely pay a little more to get prints that match that quality! I promise you there is a noticeable difference when ordering through a professional lab!
