To book your session, a nonrefundable retainer and signed contract is due within 24 hours in order to secure your date; otherwise it is up for grabs. The other half of the session fee is due on the week of the session.
I accept payments by credit card through Paypal, checks made out to "Stephanie Jones," cash, or money order.
If something comes up and you need to reschedule, let me know ASAP so we can look at my calendar and get your session in at a time that is good for both of us. All rescheduled sessions are subject to a $75 fee at the discretion of the photographer.
There are two things to keep in mind: 1) comfort and style! Dress in something that suits your personality and is comfortable weather-wise and in movement., 2) pick one or two colors for your family to wear in arrangement of ways (yellow scarf on mom, yellow patterned shirt on dad, yellow bow on daughter, and yellow shoes on son). Long ago are the days when we all wear white shirts and jeans! Check out my Pinterest board titled, "What to Wear."
I like to create portraits that focus mainly on my clients, so I don't use many props. I do think it's sweet to incorporate flowers or balloons, depending on the type of session, or even a special sentimental token that speaks to you and/or your family. Please discuss these things with me prior to booking.
I do my best to have a gallery ready for view within a week. If I need more time, you will be notified promptly.
After all images are ready for view, I upload them to a gallery and send you a link with instructions. You will simply choose which images you want and a download link will be sent immediately to your email. You will also have the ability to purchase additional images or even the FULL gallery.
Because of the size of the images, I can email 1-3 to you within a day or two; just let me know which ones you would like.
Yes, all sessions receive a print release, which allows you to have your images printed anywhere you choose. I do suggest staying away from Walmart, Target, CVS, and other "quick print" stores, as their printers are not meant for professional images and are notorious for distorting colors.
Yes, I have a wonderful high quality lab that you may get prints, canvases, and a wide range of other unique options from. Ask me for a "Product Packet."
YES! I absolutely love referrals and prefer to grow my business in that way. Every single time you refer someone to me AND they complete a session with me, you receive a cute postcard in the mail with a $50 off coupon which may go towards any session or prints (not to be combined with specials).
