Q. When will I receive the photos from my session?
A. Generally your photos will be ready for download 7-14 days after the date of your session. This allows me the time necessary to choose and edit your best photos.
Q. How long will my photos be available for download?
A. Your photos will be available to download for at least 1 month. When your photos are finished, I will send you a link where you will be able to view and download your photos. If you lose them or need to download them again after the link has expired, just contact me.
Q. Do you provide prints? What print labs do you recommend?
A. I do not provide prints, only the digital JPEG files. This gives you the freedom to make prints yourself and ultimately saves you money! Two very good print labs I recommend are MPIX (www.mpix.com) and Nations Photo Lab (www.nationsphotolab.com). These labs provide a wide range of products and prints for very reasonable prices. Please use a professional lab for you prints! It really makes a difference in color accuracy, contrast, and overall quality.
Q. What is the best time of day to schedule an outdoor session?
A. I cannot emphasize enough how important light is in photography. The quality, amount, and direction of light can have a huge impact on the quality of portraits. For outdoor sessions I prefer to shoot when the sun is low in the sky, so early evening or early morning. My favorite time to schedule sessions is during the last hour of sunlight when the sun casts a soft, warm, golden light.
Q. Do you photograph weddings or engagements?
A. At this time I do not do weddings or engagement sessions.
