Q: WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

A: WE WILL SCHEDULE A SESSION PLANNING CONSULTATION FOR FOR ABOUT 2 WEEKS PRIOR TO YOUR SHOOT.  I WILL HAVE YOU BRING ME WHAT OUTFITS YOU'VE ALREADY CHOSEN INCLUDING ACCESSORIES.  WE'LL TALK ABOUT YOUR STYLE, WHAT YOU LOVE AND WHAT MAKES YOU, YOU!   WE WILL MAKE OUR FINAL DECISION ON LOCATION AND OUTFITS.  OFTEN I WILL SEND YOU OFF WITH A LIST OF ITEMS TO PULL TOGETHER TO COMPLETE YOUR LOOKS.

Q: HOW DO I ORDER PRINTS?

A: OVER THE YEARS I HAVE FOUND MOST OF MY CLIENTS PREFER TO MAKE THEIR OWN PRINTS FOR FRIENDS AND FAMILY.  I WILL SEND A LINK TO A PROFESSIONAL LAB SO YOU ARE ABLE TO ORDER TOP NOTCH PRODUCTS AT WHOLESALE PRICING.  SOME CLIENTS STILL PREFER TO HAVE ME PRINT SOME OF THE MORE DIFFICULT TO ORDER ITEMS SUCH AS ALBUMS, IMAGE BOXES AND GALLERY WRAP CANVASES.  THESE ARE AVAILABLE TO YOU AS AN ADD ON TO YOUR SESSION WHEN YOU BOOK!
