Consultation & Booking

Your experience with me begins before the first photograph is even taken. The process starts with a phone, e-mail, or in-person consultation where you and I will discuss the session. This allows me to get a sense of your goals and desires about the session. Your contract and session fee is due when you reserve your date and time. You may reserve your session with cash, check, or credit card. Payment must be received within seven (7) days of scheduling your session, otherwise your appointment date will be released.

 

Shoot Times

My sessions are scheduled on Monday thru Friday with the occasional Saturday. To achieve the best lighting, I prefer to shoot two hours before sunset. In July, this means starting about 7:30 p.m. in December, it could be as early as 2:00 p.m. Midday sun is harsh and produces unflattering light and shadows. By following the “2-hour” rule, we are sure to take advantage of the best light the day has to offer!
