FAQ

What area do you primarily do your sessions?

My business is based in Portland, Oregon and the surrounding Pacific Northwest. But I am available to travel anywhere!

Why should I choose you to take care of my photography?
What’s so unique about you?

I am invested in YOUR STORY. No matter what corner you turn I am there to hold space for your journey.
I’m also a little bit silly, other families have told me that they love that energy.

It’s been a while since I’ve had professional photos taken. Why now?

Hate to be corny, but every single second is precious. And one day your great great great granddaughter is going to be electronically going through photos in her head (That’s where we are heading, right! Ha ha…), and she’s going to see your photos and feel an instant connection. Every photo will last several lifetimes, and I think it’s my responsibility to document that for you.

When is payment due? What type of payment can I make? What if I need something refunded?

Each story package requires a session fee/retainer and a signed contract. This reserves me for the date and time and also includes travel and editing. The entire booking retainer is nonrefundable. If you are unhappy for any reason we will work together as best we can to fix the issue and so that everyone is happy!

You can pay with via PayPal or with cash, credit/debit card, check, money order. I will send you an electronic invoice to your email and you can pay with a card right there. It does NOT store your card number, I will only see that the charge was paid.

What happens once the session is complete?

3 weeks after your session I will email you and let you know that your photos are up online in a secure gallery, password protected (exception for Births & Fresh 48s who receive USBs).

When should I book my birth, newborn, or maternity session(s)?

Please don’t hesitate to contact me as soon as you can! Life can get quite hectic when you’re pregnant and before you know it you’re headed to the birth center with a packaged bag. I prefer to schedule my pregnant clients between 32-36 weeks and fit the precious newbies in around 5-12 days (though, they can be older as well). I only book 4 birth stories a month so getting booked as early as possible will guarantee your spot.

How do I schedule a photo shoot with you?

At the top of this blog is a button that says “Contact”  – Here you will find a form that asks for your name, email, the kind of session you want to book etc. Fill that out and send! I’ll get back to you as soon as possible, usually no more than 48 hours or so.
