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, PayPal 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 to set up your viewing/ordering appointment.
What's the deal with an "ordering appointment?"
I want to make sure you have the very best of service, so I will set up a time to meet with you to go over your images in person once they are ready to view. I'm happy to come to your home, or meet you in a local coffee shop (because who doesn't need some extra caffeine in their day?!) and we will sit down and go through your images one by one. I will have lots of awesome product samples for you to see and touch and I can help you pick out which of your favorite images you want to display and how.
Great! I'm so excited to see my products - when will they be ready?
Prints typically arrive within a week, canvas and other products can take up to 4 weeks. As soon as your entire order arrives I will inspect it to make sure nothing was damaged in shipping, package it up and contact you! Then you can meet up with me to pick up your awesome products!
Do you sell digital images on CD?
I believe the reason to get portraits done is to display them in your home to enjoy every day. Because of this I do not sell digital images but I am here to help you pick the very best products to display your memories.
