Where are you located?
I am located in Minot, ND! I am lucky enough to have lived here my whole life and enjoy everything that it has to offer. I currently have a studio that is open by appt only at 2001 8th Ave SE #1 Minot, ND. Check out how to get there under the info tab (:
How would you describe your style?
How long will it take to recieve our images?
90% of my galleries are ready 2 weeks after your session. Wedding galleries are ready within 14 days after the date of the wedding.
Where does the sesssion take place? Do you have a studio?
What should we wear?
I am working on a brochure for that, until then please check out a photographer that I greatly admire out of Boston, MA. She has some great tips HERE
What happens if it rains or storms?
I always have back up dates open each month in case of bad weather, and there is no fee to reschedule to a new date if it is storming or raining.
What if my children won't cooperate?
Getting to know children is always fun! I am always up for the challenge. Even the ones who are shy / stubborn/ you name it! I find that being easy-going and having fun translates to happy little ones! That being said, not every moment of the session is perfect, and that is OK! It is encouraged! I guarantee you will cherish images of your little one crying fake tears as the one we take of them a minute later happily running toward the camera! My goal is to capture their personalities just the way they are.
I really only want a couple images for social media / I don't want to buy images or wall art.
Can I keep the images from my session private?
All clients sign a contract with a model release included. If you would prefer to keep your images private you can just let me know at the time of booking! I 100% respect your decision and will keep your images stored away.
Can we do a home session even if our house is tiny/dark/messy?
YES! There is always a beautiful little patch of light that is perfect! If it is home to your family that all that I need to work with! ps..... PLEASE don't worry about mess- it is OK to look like you live there! lol! I'll even help you move furniture/clutter around as we go!
Process of Sessions
Why should I meet with you after my session too?
People come to me for wall art and images to display. We can meet after your session so I can be your guide and hold your hand through the process of creating a beautiful display. This is one way that I better strive to serve my clients. I have done this with many of my clients and they all so far have loved this process much more than receiving them on a disk with a chance of them getting lost forever.
Why should I order prints & wall art from you? Why not Walmart / Shutterfly?
Album & Digital Files
Do you include digital files?
Wedding Packages include a High Resolution Download & on a USB drive with Print Release.
Are the files retouched?
Every proof in your gallery is color-corrected and edited 95% of the way. Any images that you order will be fully retouched at no additional charge. Common fixes included but are not limited to: flyaway hairs, skin smoothing and blemish removal, escaping bra straps, etc. There are few things that I’m NOT able to do in Photoshop. More extreme things such as removal of braces, or severe acne will be charged at $50 per image.
Do you deliver every image you shoot?
Do you offer photo cards for holiday/ senior / birth, ect.
I sure do! My printing company that I outsource too has never failed me yet! They provide me with mutiple size cards, foil & paper options as well as other amazing products. If you want to view my gallery of card layouts just ask for the password to the CARDS page!
