FAQ

Do you edit your images?

  • I use Photoshop CC to edit all of my images.  Each one is carefully edited to reflect my vision and to bring out the beauty of the subject.

Can I see the unedited images?

  • I do not allow clients to view unedited images.  This is not a true representation of my work.  The client has hired me to provide a service and product based on what they see on my page and that is what they trust me to provide

Do you offer Gift Certificates?

  • Absolutely! Photography sessions make great gifts

Do you have a gift registry program for baby showers?

  • I sure do.  I have a link that family and friends can go to in order to purchase portions of your session in any amount

What is the best time for outdoor sessions?

  • The best time of day for outdoor photography is first thing in the morning before the sun gets too harsh and about an hour and a half before sunset. I rarely photograph outdoor sessions midday unless I seek shade or have cloud cover.

For indoor sessions, do you come to my place or do I come to you?

  • I have a newborn/child studio location in Portugal Cove.  All newborn and babies first year sessions take place here.  Of course I do on-location shoots as well but these are typically outdoor sessions.

How do I prepare for my newborn session?

  • Once your session is in my calender I will send along my newborn session guide with all the information you need to prepare yourself and your new baby.  I’ll also send my newborn questionnaire so I can get a better idea of your vision of your session

How far in advance should I book my session?

  • I have clients who book months in advance!  It is never too early to secure your spot. It is crucial to book newborn sessions while you are still pregnant. I have had to turn so many newborns away because I am already booked. If your deliver early or late I will do my best to rearrange my schedule to accomodate your session.

What do I wear?

  • Family; Try to co-ordinate, but not “match”.  Colours that compliment each other.  No bold patterns or logos.  No baseball caps.  Layers are great.
  • Maternity; jeans, tank top, blouse, a cute dress.
  • Newborn; nothing for baby, Mom and Dad in black or white tank tops or light t-shirts, Dad barechested if comfortable

Are pets allowed?

  • Of course! I do ask that you have a backup plan for them. Bring someone along to your session to help out. Pets can be very much like children, completely unpredictable.

What happens after the session?

  • My turn around time on galleries is 1-2 weeks.  I will post sneaks on Facebook within a few days.  All print ordering can be done from your gallery.  Prints take about 2 weeks.  I use a professional print lab that I know will reproduce my images the way they are seen on my screen.  I can not guarantee the quality of prints obtained anywhere other than my lab.
