Frequently asked Questions~
Where are you located?
Tampa, FL. I am happy to serve St.Petersburg, Clearwater, and Tampa area within a 20 mile radius of 33626. Travel fee of $100 applied for locations outside of 33626 20 mile radius.
Where can I have my photos taken?
Together, we will come up with a location that fits your lifestyle. For example locations can be an urban setting, countryside setting, or beach setting.
Why do you book your outdoor sessions in the early morning or late afternoon?
I am an on-location, natural light photographer. The best lighting from the sun comes in the early morning and at about 1-2 hours before sunset. Start times before sunset may vary depending on the time of year, starting as early as 4:30 in the winter months, and as late as 7:30 in the summer months.
What types of sessions do you offer?
I offer family, children, senior, couples, and engagement sessions. I do not currently offer wedding services.
What types of collections and products do you offer?
Three collections are offered as well as a la carte options. I am a full service photographer, offering you prints + mats, frames, Heirloom custom albums, hand made Italian folio boxes to showcase your prints in and a collection of Wall Galleries. I am here to help you decide which product is best for you, your family and your walls.
Will I receive my digital negatives?
Each collection includes digital images and each a la carte item that you purchase comes with the corresponding digital image if you choose not to purchase a collection. While I do believe that digital images are important for archival purposes, I place much more value on your prints, albums, and wall gallery. Think of the digital image as the negatives of film, we took the negatives that came with our prints and stuck them in the drawer. We did the exact same thing with the floppy disk, the CD, and USB. Digital images get lost in the technology abyss. Archival professional prints last a LIFETIME and will be passed down to generations, and for this reason every collection includes PRINTS.
How long is the session?
Sessions last 1-2 hours.
How long do we have to order from our online gallery?
Within 2-3 weeks of your photo session we will meet for your gallery reveal, at this time you will choose which collection best suits you or you may purchase from the a la carte menu. You only purchase what you love, there is no minimum requirement.
A session fee of $200.00 is due at time of booking your session. This fee secures your time and date, covers your pre-consultations, your session, and edited digital reveal gallery. If you cancel or are a no show this session fee is NON refundable. Payment can be made with a credit card via my secure website, cash, or check. Your reveal will take place 1-2 weeks following your session either at your home or a pre determined location, at that time I will help you decide which products are a good fit for you. I am here to help you through the entire process from selecting your favorites to the finished print product.
How much can I expect to invest in our session/portraits/digital images/prints?
Clients will typically invest $850 to $3000 for their lifetime family heirlooms. I use one of the highest quality ARCHIVAL print labs on the market. You will see and feel a difference in your prints. They are meant to last a life time and to be cherished for many generations.
What happens if we need to reschedule?
Should you need to reschedule due to illness or extenuating circumstances, we will reschedule within 1-3 weeks.
Since I am an on-location, natural light photographer, there may be times when weather does not co-operate! In this event, we will reschedule your session with in the next 3 weeks.
