- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Payment at time of booking by credit card is preferred. Some sessions may require a non-refundable retainer to reserve your date and time upon booking your session, with the remaining creative fee due before we meet. If our session has to be postponed for any reason, you’ll have 90 days to reschedule your session, based on our mutual availability.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We’ll schedule a time to talk on the phone and discuss your idea for the shoot, my availability for the dates you have in mind and where it will take place. Based on our conversation and the information provided, I'll send a proposal or contract for you to sign online. Included will be an invoice for a retainer if required, or for full payment upon receipt. A basic session is for up to one hour of my photographic attention at the location of your choice, with however many changes of look possible, depending on the location and time available. Client agrees to pay any fees associated with or obtain permission for photography in the location chosen. After our session, you’ll receive a link to a password-protected gallery of high-resolution images, edited and ready for use. Your photos will be downloadable from a password-protected gallery for up to six months. Photo metadata will include a license for usage of your images. There is no minimum print order. You may order prints through my site or take the image files elsewhere and have them done. Photos are available on physical media for an additional fee.
