Frequently Asked Questions
What is your availability?
With a growing family with 4 young children, I now offer my photography services on a very limited seasonal basis from July-October. Be sure to check out my Session Info page for current availability. I have a small number of family sessions available per season with priority given to previous clients, so be sure to connect with me to be notified of openings if you're interested in booking. Fall, in particular, is an extremely popular time of year and bookings will open in summer for the fall season; I will only be offering 1-2 family sessions each month this fall. Contact me to be notified when my fall schedule is available.
Do you offer digital files?
Absolutely! I believe high resolution digital files are very important for archiving images, but I also believe that print products are extremely important and are a hallmark of the services that a professional photographer provides. My work is made to be passed down and the lifespan for the prints I offer is 100 years. Unfortunately, there is no way of knowing what technology will be available in the future to access today's digital images. Because of this, I offer all-inclusive packages with both selected premium professional, archive prints and hand-edited high-resolution digital images.
Can I print the digital files myself?
The hand-edited, high resolution digital image collections I offer my clients include a limited copyright release, so clients are able to have their own prints made. However, it's important to note that there is a considerable difference in quality between my premium professional lab and local drugstores, online consumer labs, or home office printers. I spent many years working with different labs and chose Miller's Professional Imaging for their incredible quality; they are not available to consumers. As part of the print service I offer, each ultra-premium gift print is specially cropped, prepared, and mounted on matboard for unsurpassed, archival quality finished work.
Do we need to meet? Can you send me an online gallery instead?
Because I offer a high-touch experience and highly value customer service, I do not issue galleries without an in-person meeting first. My clients rely on my expertise to help them to choose images and design the products that work best for them, so that they get exactly what they want. In the past, I have issued online galleries without client meetings, but received feedback that it was much easier for my clients to meet instead. My goal is to provide the best service possible.
Do you photograph weddings?
While I got my start photographing weddings and they are dear to my heart, my family's scheduling requirements no longer allow me to photograph them; wedding photography is not a service that I currently offer.
