Session & Booking FAQ

Are you holding sessions during COVID-19?

I am available sessions and am strictly following all Covid-19 safety precautions, including utilization of PPE and social distancing as much as possible.

What kind of sessions do you offer and who do you work with?

The short answer is, everyone! I love photographing people from all walks of life and do not discriminate by race, gender, religion, ability or sexual orientation.

Portraits are my bread and butter, but I can also shoot events by request. Several times a year I offer Mini Sessions to give a taste of what I do--a little bit of time, but a lot of fun! Check out the Sessions page for all my current offerings!

Where do you shoot?

I am based in New York City and service all boroughs and Long Island. I can be available to travel--just send me a message!

What is your booking process? Will there be a contract?

After I receive your initial email (check out that contact page!) I'll reach out and we can chat to see if its a fit. From there, I'll pass along some questions to help guide your shoot and we will get on a call to hammer out all the details! You will receive a booking form, contract and invoice from me. Once the deposit is paid and contract signed, you'll be considered confirmed and we'll be off to the races!

For more details, check out the 'What To Expect' page in each section!

How long are your sessions?

My portrait sessions typically range from 60 minutes to 2ish hours, but you can book a whole day with me if you like! We'll get plenty of shots :)

Will you send me the full album and/or raw images?

I can totally relate to all the reasons you'd want the full album and raw images, however I unfortunately am unable to share unedited images, and the reason is pretty simple! When you book with me, you book my style as well, and I want to make sure you have the best final product. The unedited photos are just that--not quite final. I promise you will get a ton of great images and not want for anything! :)

What kind of gear do you use?

I shoot everything on a Canon 5D Mark III, using either a 50 mm prime or 24 to 70 mm zoom lens. I can also shoot on film on a Minolta x570.

What if it rains or snows?

We all know that Mother Nature has a mind of her own, and since I shoot primarily outdoors weather is definitely a factor! I always check in a few days before our shoot, and if it seems like weather will prohibit us from shooting I will work with you to reschedule.

Can I have my shoot in multiple locations?

Usually, yes! This depends on the package you choose and will be discussed and decided upon prior to shooting.

Delivery FAQ

How many photos will I receive?

This will depend on the package you choose but I personally can never have too many photos, and want you to experience the same! After your shoot, I will go through and choose the best images, removing any blurry or unflattering shots (this is why we take so many!) I will then edit the best 30-50 to deliver to you, depending upon your package, but sometimes I'll throw in a few extra if I can't decide! I can offer virtual or in-person proofing sessions if requested!

Will you send me the full album and/or raw images?

I can totally relate to all the reasons you'd want the full album and raw images, however I unfortunately am unable to share unedited images, and the reason is pretty simple! When you book with me, you book my style as well, and I want to make sure you have the best final product. The unedited photos are just that--not quite final. I promise you will get a ton of great images and not want for anything! :)

When and how will I receive my photos?

I edit all my photos myself, so it does take a little bit of time as I want to make sure they are just right. Images take about 2-4 weeks to be edited, and you'll receive them digitally in a private online gallery that you can use to share with friends and family and download for your use!

Do I have to order prints?

Not at all! I personally don't provide prints in my packages, but can recommend places to print. You will get a print release from me with your package that will give you permission to print wherever you like!
