Frequently Asked Questions
How long is a portrait session?
Most family sessions last 1 - 1 ½ hours. If it’s an extended family shoot, we will schedule 1 ½ - 2 hours, so that we are not rushed.
We have different options for Seniors:
> The Standard Experience which is 1 - 1 ½ hour shoot;
> The Basic Experience package which is ½ - 1 hour; which is a great (compromise) option if your senior isn’t really wanting to do photos - quick and painless; and
> The Ultimate Experience for Seniors who really want to showcase who they are which is 2 - 3 hours.
We occasionally offer themed mini-shoots which are usually 20 - 30 minutes long. If we have one planned, you can find the information here.
What does the session fee cover?
All Session Fees (except the Mini Sessions) include:
The Pre-Portrait Consultation;
> Your Photoshoot;
> Entry into most shooting locations (if there is a fee);
> Time spent editing the pictures; and
> Your in-person Portrait Reveal and Order Session.
Do you have suggestions for photography locations?
I most certainly do! This will be covered in our pre-shoot consultation, but if you know what you are looking for, I probably have a place for it. And if you don’t know what you are looking for, we will figure it out together!
How far in advance do you book?
I am currently booking for October and November, but will book as far out as six months.
How many photos should I expect from my photo session ?
For regular sessions, there will be a minimum of 20 images, but there is not a limit.
The number of images from a mini-session is a minimum of 7.
Will I get to see all the images?
Unfortunately, no. I take a lot of pictures and then comb through them and select only the very best.
Can I bring my pets?
You most certainly can! In my opinion, our pets are family, and they are welcome to join in your family portraits!
What should I wear for my portrait session?
There is a different answer for each client. Families will want coordinating colors. Not necessarily the same color, but definitely choose colors that do not clash. For seniors, I recommend at least two outfits - a dressier outfit and more casual outfit. And if you can make them layered, that makes it especially easy. This will be discussed during our Pre-Portrait Consultation.
Can I bring props?
Definitely! And this will be something to discuss in the Pre-Portrait Consultation.
Can I schedule a photoshoot at the same time as a friend?
Absolutely! I LOVE Best Friend Sessions! They are so much fun and make for a really fun and enjoyable shoot! And when you are having fun, I am capturing amazing images! You can have up to four friends and you each get the session fee at a discount!
Do you have appointments on the weekends?
Of course, but they are limited and book up very quickly, so contact me to see what I have available.
What if the weather is bad?
I am always watching the weather! If it looks like it is going to be bad, I will reschedule as early as possible. However, living in Oklahoma, you know weather is a tricky thing to predict, so a lot of tim.
Do you offer digital images?
Yes I do. Any image that+++++++
