FAQ

I get lots and lots of questions on a daily basis, so I'll do my best to answer them here!

 

What should I wear?

I've got a page for that! Check out my tips here. And I'm happy to consult via video chat, phone or email before your shoot.

 

Does your fee include digital files and can I print them?

Yes, you will receive beautifully color-corrected, high-resolution files, which you can have printed by me or anywhere you choose! You can view my full range of available products here as well.

 

Who designs your albums?

I have two options: a less-expensive drag and drop album, which is a do-it-yourself solution. Or, custom-designed albums, which I make for you. You can choose the images, and if you don't have time for that, I can choose them for you.

 

Are you LGBTQ friendly?

Absolutely, I am honored to capture each and every family and couple.

 

What is the best way to contact you and book?

Email is definitely my favorite way to communicate, and also how I will send you a scheduling link, so that is recommended.

 

When do you offer mini sessions and how much do they cost?

Mini sessions run once a month, year-round and are $450 for 30 minutes.

 

Do you have a studio?

No, I do not. But, I do utilize several different studios in the Boulder and Denver area.

 

What if the weather is bad?

If the weather is bad for your custom or mini session, we will find a new day and time that works for you. If it rains on your wedding or mitzvah day, I'll be there for you no matter what! Note, I do not reschedule for heat, cold or smoky conditions, unless it is dangerous to be outside.

 

How is a mini session different from a custom session?

A mini session is 30 minutes, and takes place at a location I choose, and only on certain days (about twice a month during busy season). This helps me keep the cost lower for you. Custom sessions are 60-90 minutes and you can choose the location, and there are more slots available.

 

What if someone in my family is sick for our session?

Please reschedule! There is no penalty. I want everyone to be their best selves.

 

Can we go to multiple locations?

Yes, if they are close enough for time to allow and you have booked a custom session! We can usually fit in two locations.

 

Is there a limit to number of people in a family session?

For families of more than ten, I have a $50 charge per member.

 

What if my child doesn't cooperate?

You will be amazed at the beautiful images we can get, even with a child who is not feeling it that day. My favorite moment is sending a gallery to a parent who thinks we didn't get any good shots, and delivering many good images.

 

Will you travel?

I will go anywhere in the Boulder/Denver metro area. Beyond the front range, I travel for a $750 travel fee.

 

Can we shoot in my home?

Yes! Just choose a custom session.

 

I'd like to book a senior session, can my child share the session with a friend?

Absolutely, additional friends are $100 each.

 

Can I bring a change of clothes?

You bet! Just bear in mind you might have to change in your vehicle. For senior and branding sessions, I can usually do about one outfit for every 20 minutes.

 

What about hair and makeup?
I have put together a list of my favorite hair and makeup stylists here:

Do you offer discounts or do pro-bono work?

Yes! I am happy to cater to your budget and love helping out non-profits. Just tell me what you need. I also have two amazing associate shooters who I can send for a reduced rate, which may better fit your budget.

 

How do I know you won't lose any files from my wedding day, or my family shoot? They are so precious!

My decade of experience brings with it peace of mind for you. I have an arsenal of amazing equipment, including three cameras which each hold two memory cards. I back those cards up to the cloud and three hard drives so I won't lose a moment of your day. My second shooters are all experienced photographers as well, many of whom I have worked with for several years.

 

Do you charge sales tax?

Yes, beginning in February 2022, digital files are considered taxable, I now have to charge 6.74% sales tax (Boulder rate). I separate the digital files out from your total, as a $50 charge for most sessions, except weddings and commercial sessions, which are $100, and this is the amount you will be taxed on.

 

When is my deposit due?

Deposits are 50% at time of booking and 50% thirty days before an event or one week before a session.

 

Are you vaccinated?

Yes, I am fully vaccinated, boosted and like the rest of the world, I've also had Covid-19! But, I'm still happy to wear a mask if that makes you more comfortable. Just let me know.
