Q:  Are the digital images from my session included in the pricing?

Q:  Do you offer touch ups on our photos?

A: Yes! Touch ups are included in your session price. We will always consult with you before the session start to obtain information on your desired amount of touch ups for your session images. Each image can be edited to address: hair out of place, lint, dirt, acne, stains on clothing, photo bombers etc.

Q:  Do you offer the un edited images?

A: No. This is not an option. We spend a lot of time during the session to ensure we are getting several angels for each shot. We then spend our time finding the most flattering of the bunch. We do the digging, so you get only your best photos. Sometimes, even if your package only includes 10 images, but we find 12 amazing ones, those will be included as well at no additional cost. 

Q:  Do you offer physical prints from my session?

Q:  Do your require a contract & deposit upon booking a session?

A: Yes. All booked session do require a signed contract that allows us to use your images for advertising and a $50 non-refundable (in most cases) deposit to hold you session date & time. The remaining balance is due on your session date.

Q:  What if I need to reschedule my session date due to a personal reason?

A: No worries! We understand that life happens, and things come up! We will work together to come up with an alternative session date & time that works for you. Your $50 deposit is non-refundable, however if a refund is needed due to some life circumstances (death or illness, etc.) this will be decided on a case by case instance. (Our sessions are our livelihood, and we appreciate your understanding of this policy)

Q:  What if we have booked a session while we are here on vacation and the weather is bad the whole time?

A: Locals will be rescheduled for weather at our discretion. For out-of- town guests, we hope you will have at least one day of ideal weather; however, even if the weather does not look promising, we will keep your scheduled appointment and work within the confines of the weather. Remember, there is a lot we can do during the editing process of your photos to warm them up, enhance sunsets, lighting etc. If, after the scheduled session, a day of great weather pops-up before you leave town, we will reshoot the session at no additional cost to you. We want you to have the best photos possible. Alternatively, our studio is available during bad weather and can be used if circumstances permit. Refunds for severe weather at our discretion.

Q:  Do you make backups of the photos you take?

A: We keep backup photos of your session images for 90 days from your session date. Your gallery with the final images will also be accessible for 90 days after your session. USB flash drives can be made for you with all your final images and mailed for $20.

Q:  Do you have liability insurance?

A: Yes for sure.
