FAQ

Here are some frequently asked questions that I can answer now!

 

Where are you located?

I’m based out of the lovely Gaithersburg, Maryland. 🙂

How far can you travel for sessions?

I’m currently doing most shoots in Montgomery County, MD, but am available to travel within Maryland, DC & Virginia with advance notice on certain dates of availability. Email me for details.

What time in the day do you take photos?

I usually schedule sessions either in the morning before 11 a.m. (only on Saturdays) or anytime two hours before sunset (weekdays and Saturdays). Those are the best times for lighting when the sun is not too harsh. I can schedule at other times in special cases (overcast days or difficult availability).

How do I pay you?

As of right now I accept cash or checks; due in full the day of your session. But, I will be doing most of it electronically in the near future.

Can I choose the location?

Absolutely! I usually have a few options as far as location, but I love finding great new spots to take photos that I’ve never heard of before.

Sweet! I’m all booked, but… what should I wear?

Ah! I get this question A LOT! I wrote a lovely blog post about it that you can read here to help you out.

Do you shoot weddings?

I do not currently shoot weddings. Although, I do take engagement photos!

How will I receive my photos?

Once upon a time, I used to get my clients house address, burn a CD, and mail it to them or I would meet up with them to physically hand them their CD. That got too crazy and unreliable. Also, if there were problems, it was harder for me to troubleshoot. Now, all my clients receive their photos in a lovely online gallery. There, you can download your photos to your computer and share them with your friends and family more simply. It’s way more quick, easy and reliable.

What is a print release?

A print release is a document that gives permission from photographer to the client, to print their photos for personal use. A print release is part of all session fees. If you choose to print at a site other than ours most companies are pretty strict on having a print release.
