Below you will find some questions often asked (FAQ) and some questions that aren’t asked that maybe should be!
Does the session include multiple outfits?
Yes. Feel free to bring along an outfit change. I recommend at least one different top. Upon booking, you will receive a "what to wear "email with a recommendation for how to choose!
Can I use the images on social media?
Yes! You will receive up to five watermarked images that you can use on social media. All images must be tagged accordingly. Should you buy more digital files you can use those as well with proper tagging.
Do you photoshop images?
I will photoshop images once an order has been placed. I do not photoshop the image to look airbrushed because I feel kids are naturally beautiful.
What if I recommend you to a friend?
That would be great! You will receive a $50 gift card towards your package for every friend you refer that books.
Can I bring along my boyfriend/girlfriend?
Absolutely! I will be sure to capture a few photos of them as well so have them be somewhat camera ready as well!
Does the session fee come with prints and digital files?
No, the session does not include any digital files or prints. Those are purchased either through a Portrait Package or separately after the session.
How do I purchase the digital file for my yearbook?
Digital images can be purchased individually at $125 per image or select a package that includes digitals.
We are on a tight budget, what should we do?
No problem. Book the 45-minute session for $150 and purchase a single digital image for $125. This would bring your total amount to under $400. You can also set up a monthly payment plan to pay for any additional purchases.
Do you have a payment plan?
Yes. You can schedule a payment plan for your senior portrait package.
What happens after the session?
After the session, you will book your post-session consultation. Five days prior to the consultation, you will receive an email with your online gallery log in information. Your gallery will be available for 30 days. During the consultation we will go over any image questions you have and discuss what you want to purchase and which packages best apply. You have 30 days to place your order so plan accordingly! It is a great feeling to check off ordering photos from your to-do list. It is an even greater feeling to hang your images on the wall and enjoy them every day!
When do we book our post-session consultation?
Please check when your school's yearbook deadline is and book your appointment AT LEAST 3 weeks prior to that.
What if I live out of state and can't come to the studio?
Not a problem. We will schedule a phone consultation. Most image questions can be resolved over a phone call with screenshot text messages. If you are wanting a custom-designed wall collage we can do that over the phone and follow up with proofs sent via email.
How long does it take to receive my order?
Digital images will be available for download 5 days after payment is received in full. All other orders may take 4-6 weeks to be delivered after the payment is received in full.
What if I only want the digital files, do I still need a consultation?
Yes. Even if you plan to print your images yourself I still want to hear from you! It is a good time to go over any questions you may have and also for you to see beautiful lasting print options. Hiring a professional means you not only get great camera time but also printing expertise!
How do I purchase the digital files?
Digital images can be purchased individually at $125 per image online and during the consultation. Digitals are included in senior packages. Also, you receive digital images with framed print and large metal orders. For example, if you order a beautifully framed 11x14 print, that corresponding digital image is included for you to make additional prints with.
Where is the studio?
The studio is located on the beautiful campus of Pineland Farms in New Gloucester Maine. It is approximately a 15-minute drive from downtown Freeport and 30 minutes from Portland. We can shoot indoors and outdoors on the beautiful Pineland Farms campus. You get the great price of the studio session along with indoor-outdoor options.
What is a mobile app?
The mobile app is a custom photo album for your mobile device. It also links to my studio and store so you can stay in touch after the session. They can be installed on as many devices as you would like and can easily share with extended family members. Installing the app takes less than a minute and the images are selected through your online gallery.
On-location session travel costs?
There are no travel costs for In-Home Sessions in the greater Freeport area. Travel fees apply for the following:
Cape Elizabeth/Kennebunkport: $50 Boston: $175 Bar Harbor: $175 Maine Islands: TBD
Can we include additional family members in the session?
Absolutely! You can book a longer session to include your family, or share part of your shorter time with them.
Can we include our pets in the session?
Absolutely! We can include pets for In-Home sessions and depending upon the location if they allow dogs. I have an approach to including pets in sessions which I am happy to discuss with you.
How long do you keep the digitals?
For those who have placed an order, I keep the digital negatives for one year. You have 30 days once the gallery to place an order. If you do not order within the 30-day timeframe I do not guarantee they will be still available.
