~~What areas do you serve?
I serve the Cleveland and Akron areas, but will gladly travel outside of them if necessary. Please contact me for more information on travel costs.
~~What are your hours?
The best times of day for natural light photography are in the early morning or late afternoon to evening, so these are the times I schedule most shoots. Newborns can be done any time during the day, and are scheduled around baby’s needs. I will work weekday evenings, and weekends too.
~~How far in advance do I need to schedule my appointment?
I book a limited amount of sessions a month, so schedule early to be assured a place.
I start scheduling for Summer starting in February, Fall starting in July, and Christmas holiday sessions in August. Those are all finalized by the last week of November, so book early!
Newborns always find a place, but a general date before they are born is extra helpful, so don’t wait!
~~Do you do seniors or family reunions?
Yes, I have done seniors, and will do a senior session at the same rate as I do children. I am game for almost any photographic assignment, and so have done catalogs and births too. Just ask!
~~When we order our prints, do the images all have to be the same?
No. You can order all different images at all sizes, except wallet size. These 8 images will be the same.
~~Will you alter any of the photos for us if we ask you really nicely?
Nope. Part of the session is my creative eye, and the final images reflect that. I won’t crop, photoshop heads, or in any other way change my work once its done. This work is about capturing the moment, and sometimes they are not perfect…trust me, you’ll appreciate the authenticity in time.
~~What about these film portraits you are now offering?
The film portraits are a little different from my others. The session only lasts an hour, has to be outdoors, and costs $125 for two children. Additional children cost $25 each, and for each extra child, you will get an extra print. The prints will be hand printed on archival photo paper, and will be a square format 7.5″ by 7.5″ – perfect for framing. Additional prints can be ordered for $10 each. Travel outside a 20 mile radius of Akron will cost an additional $20.
