How do we book a session?
The best way to inquire about my availability would be through email, firstname.lastname@example.org or call 312/520-1815.
What’s included in your pricing?
Pricing includes a print release. When your pictures are finished I will email you a link to your personal gallery. From here you can download the images directly onto your computer and print wherever your heart desires. Your gallery will remain active for 60 days.
Are there any hidden costs?
No. I charge a one-time flat rate for all of my shoots, unless otherwise specified. There are no undisclosed charges.
Are you insured?
I am insured, I am an LLC in the state of Illinois, and carry a permit with the forest preserve of DuPage County.
Not all photographers are, and this is really important for the safety of everyone and your finished product to be sure you know who you are working with!
How long until I receive my photos?
I typically have them back to you within 2-4 weeks. If you need something turned around faster, I am happy to work with you on that.
Do you have a studio?
Yes! I have an awesome, airy studio space that is perfect for so many things... from newborns and smash cakes to headshots and grads. My studio, that I share with my partner, Summer Brader, is located walking distance to the Downers Grove Main Street train. 1007 Curtiss St. Suite 7.
What should we wear?
I always recommend keeping things simple, and be yourself. And if you are unsure... consult with me, I love working with clients on wardrobe. That being said, a few things to avoid are busy patterns, logos, really strong neons, pinstripes, etc. It always looks great when families wear complimentary colors (not all the same, but complimentary, blues and yellows, reds and greens, coral and turquoise.) Layers are always a good option. Pinterest.com is a great place to gather wardrobe ideas.
What should we bring?
Depending on the style of shoot, I recommend some of the following items, a change of clothes, especially if you have little ones susceptible to accidents, a blanket, a toy that might help catch the attention of your kiddos, but generally speaking, bring as little as possible... we are going to be walking around and we want your hands and pockets free.
What if the weather isn't what we hope?
If there is a strong likelihood for rain in the forecast the evening before your scheduled shoot, we will reschedule to a mutually agreed upon date.
