I like what I see now how do I book a portrait session with you?
You can either give me a call, shoot me an email or send me a message on my contact form. We will set up a time for your no obligation consultation to determine your portrait needs and wants. At the consultation we will set up a time for your portrait session.

I’m super busy. Do I need an in person consultation?
I believe in creating a personal relationship with you so you get the most out of your portraiture investment. I encourage an in person meeting however I know how busy life is and would be happy to do a phone consultation with you if that is more convenient. Just give me a call.

How long will my portrait session last?
Your portrait session will last approximately 1 to 2 hours depending on locations and how many clothing and background changes take place and if children are involved, how cooperative they are. The little ones seem to be in charge 🙂

Does your session fee include any prints or digital images?
The $150 deposit that is required to book a session can be applied as credit toward any portrait collection. Most clients spend between $500 to $1,500 on their portraits.

Do you offer a payment plan?
Yes. Ask me about my free no interest payment plan.

Do you have a studio or do I have to wait for warm and dry weather to schedule my session?
Yes I have a studio. You can schedule your portrait session rain or shine. My studio is located in downtown Vancouver, WA in The Academy. I also do portrait sessions on location when it’s not so cold and wet.

If I want outdoor portraits do I get to choose my location or will you do that for me?
Of course I will make suggestions, but the decision for the location of you portrait session is yours.

Is there an extra fee for an outdoor portrait session?
Outdoor portrait sessions in and around downtown Vancouver have no extra charge. Locations beyond the downtown location will be charged an extra fee. The fee depends on the location.

What should I wear for my portraits?
For family portraits it’s best that everyone is dressed similarly and avoid bright colors, trendy fashion and large patterns. I have clothing suggestions HERE, or you can check out my Pinterest page for more ideas HERE.

How long will it take before I get to see my portraits?
Your portraits will be ready to view in about 2 weeks after your portrait session depending on how busy the studio is. We will set up a viewing session about 2 weeks out at your portrait session. Please bring anyone who would like input on the order to the viewing session.

Will I be able to view and order my portraits online?
No. Your portraits will only be available to view at your viewing session. Please bring all parties involved in the ordering decision with you to your viewing session. If you can’t make a decision at that time you may schedule another viewing session. There is a $100 session fee for the second viewing session.

But I’m from out of town. Do I have to come back to your studio to view my images?
No. For my out of town clients I offer a viewing session via Skype. You will need a broadband internet connection, a computer, a webcam, speakers and a mic. Please make sure all parties involved in the ordering decision are there.

How long will my viewing session last?
Your viewing appointment will last about an hour.

Can I bring my children to the viewing session?
Yes children are welcome, but keep in mind that they can be a distraction and that could add time to your viewing session.

Do I have to place my order at the viewing session?
Yes. You need to place your order at the viewing session. Please come prepared with a budget and an idea of the sizes and amount of images that you want and bring your significant other with you to the viewing appointment.
