What should I wear to my session?
I've spent countless hours creating a 32 page style guide for my wonderful clients to make it easier to choose what to wear to their session with me!
Do you offer gift certificates?
Absolutely! The minimum purchase is $25 but you can also pay for a full session as a gift as well. I can mail it or you can pick it up at my studio just outside of Markdale, Ontario. Gift certificates expire the end of the year they are purchased and will state this on the certificate itself. Full amount must be used at once. Gift certificates have no cash value.
Where are you located + do you travel?
My home studio is located at Irish Lake just outside the small town of Markdale, Ontario.
I serve all of Grey-Bruce as well as surrounding areas!
I absolutely will travel and many of my clients live in the city! I do require a travel fee of .59 per km if over a 20 km drive from my home studio on Irish Lake Markdale. This covers my gas, wear and tear on my vehicle as well as my time. Please see travel fees at the bottom of the investment page.
Do you require a deposit?
Yes. All I ask for is $100 upfront to secure your date and time in my books. It can be paid in cash or EMT to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your remaining balance is due before your session date.
When you pay a deposit they are non-refundable but they are transferable to future sessions! This also covers the cost of my time spent messaging back and forth with each client. Planning out your session and any supplies or props I may have purchased specifically for your session.
If you need to cancel or reschedule please let me know as soon as possible so I can try to fill your spot.
When will I receive my photos?
It all depends on the type of session. Turn around time for most sessions is up to 4-6 weeks but I love to edit and always get them back to you before then! The finished edits you will receive via digital download.
How many photos will I receive?
All of the best images will be sent to you via online gallery and YOU choose the images you would like me to edit! Each package has a base number of images but with the amazing selection why not pick more?! An added fee per image will apply but the more you buy the more you save! So definitely keep that in mind when choosing your gallery.
Please send me an email at email@example.com so we can discuss things in more detail.
I do not give unedited images as they are not a good representation of my style as an artist. The viewing gallery is unedited and you will only receive the edited version of those images.
*Please note...I will be selecting the images for all wedding galleries.*
Do you give black + white photos?
Yes! I happen to be a huge fan of black + white photos as there is something timeless about them.
If you do not like black + white photos, please let me know when booking your session.
Do you post the photos on social media?
Yes! This is how I get noticed and gain more clients. It’s very important to me to share my work, so I post on Facebook, Instagram and this website.
I have a few clients that ask me to please not post any so of course I don’t! I will respect your wishes. If this is you, then please make sure to tell me right away or I won’t know.
Will you edit in a different style?
No…I have done this in the past but I didn’t like to do it as it just wasn’t me. Original unedited photos are also not a good representation of me which is why I do not give them. I will edit out blemishes like acne, bug bites, scrapes & bruises and smooth the skin only if needed and then add my personal flare! Additional editing can be requested at an added fee per 30 minutes. What you see on my website is what you will get! Sometimes it varies depending on the time of day I shoot, the weather or what colours the clients are wearing but the tone is always similar. If my style is not what you're after or you'd prefer the "unedited" look, then we probably aren’t the right fit! I would be happy to send you to another photographer in the area with the style you are after!
Where should I print my digital images?
I now have a store set up when you download your digital images! You can purchase different photo products through me so I can make sure they are of the highest quality before you receive them. Currently offering Regular Sized Prints, Enlarged Prints, Gallery Wrap Canvas Prints, Photo Books + USB.
I DO NOT recommend having your photos printed at Walmart, Pharmacies & Shutterfly. I have never received a print I was happy with from them. I have spent countless hours editing your photos to my standards and editing style and would love you to be able to print them as they look on your screen! I cannot guarantee printing quality if you choose to go to a place not recommended. I only guarantee purchases through my online store.
What if I show up late to my session?
Please arrive 5-10 minutes before your scheduled time. If you show up late, you will lose that time from your session. If you are half an hour late or more I may require an added fee for my time lost.
Do you require a contract to be signed?
Yes! ALL sessions (even minis) now require this before your session begins. I will email this to you after I receive the $100 non- refundable deposit . All you do is read it, sign it and email it back to me.
