Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have a studio?
YES! I do have a studio location because I live in the "middle of nowhere" and had a difficult time finding a great meeting location for clients. I also needed a place to "get away" from the little ones for a little while to efficiently edit and store equipment. I photograph newborns and small children in-studio.
Where will we have the session?
On location shoots are decided upon at an individual basis based on the couple's choice, availability and lighting. Typical locations include ranches, farms, the beautiful Custer State Park, Angustora park, Allen Ranch in Hot Springs & the beautiful Black Hills. The best locations are wherever you feel comfortable and match your personalities.
What should I wear?
Feel free to bring a few outfit choices to your session. Layers are an awesome way to change things up without having to hunt a hole to change in. Right now coordinating contrasting colors and patterns is in style. Exact matchy matchy is not the best. Get creative and have fun with it! Anything that defines your style. I recommend hitting up Pinterest.com for great outfit ideas.
Do I HAVE to buy prints from you?
No, but it is highly recommended. With multiple chain stores and internet options it makes it easy to print extremely poor quality photos. The prints that I offer are a representation of my work and I want you to have outstanding prints to hang in your home and share with friends & family. Though my prices are significantly more than the chain store options, they are very reasonable for the heirloom quality image you will receive to last generations to come. I offer everything from wallets to 20x30 print sizes and a large variety of mounts, canvas wraps, gifts products and etc.
Can I purchase digitals?
Absolutely! With Facebook, Instagram & digital frames it makes perfect sense that you would love your images to be in digital format. Included in your session free is 3 digital downloads of your choice. You can also purchase additional individual digital images at $100 per image or additional digital downloads are available with packages. All images from the session can be purchased on a USB for $750 or (dun-dun-dun!) are included with the purchase of Product Package 3!
