DO YOU HAVE A STUDIO?
  I’M NOT A STUDIO PHOTOGRAPHER. I LIKE TO THINK OF THE GREAT OUTDOORS OR YOUR HOME AS MY STUDIO! I LOVE TRYING NEW LOCATIONS ALL AROUND MACOMB/DETROIT METRO, BUT I ALSO HAVE MY FAVORITES. I AM AVAILABLE TO HELP YOU DECIDE THE PERFECT PLACE FOR YOUR SHOOT.


DO YOU REQUIRE A DEPOSIT?
A $100 NON-REFUNDABLE RETAINER IS REQUIRED AT BOOKING TO SECURE A DATE FOR ALL LIFESTYLE SESSIONS. WEDDINGS ARE A 25% NON-REFUNDABLE RETAINER.


WHAT TYPES OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
CURRENTLY ACCEPTING CASH, CHECKS, VENMO, CHASE QUICKPAY.


TRAVEL FEES
THERE IS A $20 SERVICE FEE FOR CLIENTS WHO LIVE MORE THAN 20 MILES FROM MY HOME IN STERLING HEIGHTS, 48310. IF YOU LIVE MORE THAN 40 MILES AWAY, PLEASE INQUIRE FOR MORE DETAILS. THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO WEDDING TRAVEL FEES PLEASE INQUIRE FOR WEDDING TRAVEL FEES.


I HAVE SOME IDEAS FOR MY PHOTOS-
I ALWAYS ENCOURAGE MY CLIENTS TO DO A LITTLE RESEARCH BEFORE A SESSION TO GET AN IDEA OF WHAT THEY WANT. BRING ANYTHING YOU FEEL IS IMPORTANT TO ENHANCE YOUR PHOTOS. SOME SUGGESTIONS INCLUDE; PETS, SPECIAL TOY, SPECIAL BLANKET, STUFFED ANIMALS, ETC. 


WHAT TO BRING AND WHEN DO YOU SHOOT?
FOR FAMILY AND/OR CHILDREN PHOTO SESSIONS: OUTFIT CHANGES, A DRINK, FAVORITE TOY, SPECIAL STUFFED ANIMAL, MESS FREE SNACKS. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR LITTLE ONE HAS BEEN FED AND HAD A NAP BEFORE THE PHOTO SESSION FOR A MORE COMFORTABLE AND POSITIVE EXPERIENCE. I CANT RUSH PERFECT AND WE ALL KNOW CHILDREN DON'T HAVE A LARGE ATTENTION SPAN SO PLEASE FOLLOW THOSE ABOVE INSTRUCTIONS, PLEASE! 


I ONLY DO FAMLY SESSIONS THE LAST 2 HOURS BEFORE SUNSET WEEKDAYS ONLY , AND WHILE I UNDERSTAND YOUR CHILDREN MAY HAVE SCHEDULED BEDTIMES, I WANT YOU TO GET YOUR MONEYS WORTH BY GETTING THE BEST PHOTOS POSSIBLE. THIS TIME OF THE DAY IS THE BEST LIGHTING FOR MY STYLE PHOTOGRAPHY. MAKE YOUR SESSION DATE A SPECIAL TREAT, GO OUT SOMEWHERE NICE AFTERWARDS!


WHAT IF IT RAINS AND OUR PICTURES ARE OUTDOORS?
RAIN CHECK! THE DAY OF YOUR SESSION I WATCH THE WEATHER CONSISTENTLY. UNLESS IT'S ABSOLUTELY 100% GOING TO DOWNPOUR, I PROBABLY WILL HOLD OFF ON "CALLING IT" ABOUT 2 HOURS BEFORE THE SESSION.


WHEN CAN I EXPECT MY PICTURES?
DEPENDING ON THE QUANTITY OF THE PICTURES, I GENERALLY HAVE THEM DONE WITHIN 2-3 WEEKS. IF THERE IS ANY DELAY WHICH WE ALL KNOW IN LIFE CAN HAPPEN I WILL CONTACT YOU AND LET YOU KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON, BUT PLEASE BE PATIENT WITH ME IF THAT IS THE CASE. I UNDERSTAND THE ANTICIPATION SO I WILL DO MY BEST TO GET THEM TO YOU IN A TIMELY MANNER.  WEDDINGS TAKE ABOUT 6-8 WEEKS TURNAROUND, ULTIMATELY DEPENDING ON THE NUMBER OF HOURS SHOOTING.


WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
I ALWAYS SUGGEST LAYERS/TEXTURES. IN GROUP PHOTOS, COLOR COORDINATING IS ALWAYS MORE PLEASING TO THE EYE. WEAR CLOTHES THAT REPRESENT YOU AND WHO YOU ARE AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, ARE COMFORTABLE. ONE THING I DO NOT FIND VERY APPEALING IN PHOTOS IS SHIRTS WITH LOGOS, I FEEL LIKE THE SHIRT IS THE FIRST THING PEOPLE LOOK AT WHEN SEEING THE PHOTOS AND WE WANT TO SEE YOUR WONDERFUL FACE! AND PLEASE NO NEON! ASK ME WHAT TO WEAR I LOVE STYLING OUTFITS!


YOU TOOK SO MANY PICTURES! DO I GET THEM ALL?
YOU WILL HEAR MY CAMERA CLICKING A LOT! I TAKE A LOT OF IMAGES IN LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY AND AT WEDDINGS IN ORDER TO CAPTURE THAT PERFECT MOMENT. NO, YOU WON’T GET EVERY IMAGE THAT I TAKE. I WILL CHOOSE THE BEST OF THE BEST AND THOSE IMAGES WILL BE EDITED AND DELIVERED TO YOU, YOU CAN CHECK THE INVESTMENT SECTION TO SEE HOW MANY PHOTOS ARE DELIVERED FOR EACH LIFESTYLE PACKAGE. NO RAW IMAGES ARE DELIVERED EVER, EVER....EVER.


WE NEED TO RESCHEDULE, WHAT'S YOUR POLICY?
I WOULD LOVE FOR YOU TO GIVE US AT LEAST A 24 HOUR NOTICE SO I CAN POSSIBLY FILL IN THE TIME SLOT WITH ANOTHER SESSION, BUT I UNDERSTAND WHEN SOMETHING COMES UP UNEXPECTEDLY AND YOU NEED TO CHANGE YOUR DAY AT THE LAST MINUTE. IT HAPPENS! PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT RESCHEDULING/CANCELING STILL MEANS FORFEITING YOUR $100 RETAINER AS YOU PAID ME TO HOLD THAT DATE FOR YOU AND I TURNED AWAY ANY OTHER INQUIRES FOR THAT DAY. OBVIOUSLY IF IT'S A RAIN OUT AND I CALL IT YOUR RETAINER WILL BE TRANSFERRED TO THE NEW SCHEDULED SESSION DATE. 


WHAT IF THERE'S SOMETHING I SEE THAT I DON'T NEED IN ONE OF YOUR WEDDING PACKAGES?

PLEASE JUST ASK AWAY! I AM HAPPY TO WORK WITH EVERYONES NEEDS!
