I love your work! I'd like to book a session - now what?
Yay! I'm excited to work with you! Shoot me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a call at 573.489.1370 and let me know you are ready to book! A retainer of $50 is required to book your spot. Until you pay your retainer your name isn't on my schedule so be sure and pay ASAP so you don't lose the date you want! Your retainer is non-refundable but will be applied to the full session cost.
How can I pay my retainer/session fee?
I accept cash, local checks and credit/debit.
Where are we going to take these pictures?
Well, that's pretty much up to you! If you have a location in mind please let me know, but I'm happy to help brainstorm a location too! I'm happy to travel to fun, unique locations around central Missouri, but if its outside of a 25 mile radius of Columbia I will have to charge travel fees.
We had a super fun session! Now what?
Now I edit, edit, edit! You can expect a sneak peak or two within 24 hours and your full gallery will be complete in 3-6 weeks. (the goal is closer to 3 than 6, but I have three kiddos and they get sick, break things and generally cause havoc, so some wiggle room is appreciated.) When your images are complete I will message you with a gallery link.
How long can I view my Online Gallery?
Galleries are available for one week. Feel free to share your gallery link with friends and family, but let them know that purchases need to be done quickly! Use the "favorite" feature to choose the images you'd like included in your session fee and I'll get those sent to you as soon as you've decided for sure! Be sure to download your images as soon as you get the link and save them to a computer - maybe even two for backup! ;)
Hey didn't you used to use "ordering appointments" instead of online galleries?
Yes! I still offer an in person viewing of your images if you find that easier or more enjoyable! I'll never turn down a cup of coffee with my awesome clients while we peruse your beautiful images! However I'm also homeschooling three awesome little people and I know that both your time and mine is often super full and online galleries make life easier sometimes!
I really want some super cool canvases or prints for my home or gifting! Can I get those from you?
Yes!! I love helping put art on your walls! My prints and products are all printed at high quality professional labs on archival quality mediums so they will last a lifetime (plus!). You can order through your gallery or message me for one on one assistance in picking exactly what you want! Once ordered, prints typically arrive within a week, canvas and other products can take up to 4 weeks.
Do you sell digital images?
Each session includes a handful of fully edited high resolution digital images that you may download through my online gallery service. While I understand the high importance of digital images in this day and age I would highly recommend printing through me. I have carefully calibrated my equipment to the specifications of the professional labs I use and am confident in the product you will receive through them. Because I don't have this relationship with local drug stores or discount online sites I cannot guarantee the coloring or quality of any images printed outside my labs.
