Before you book a portrait session you may have a few questions. Here I answer a few FAQs I have received about family, children, and seniors portrait sessions!
1. Where are you located?
I am an East Idaho lifestyle family and children session photographer based out of Idaho Falls, ID.
2. Do you offer sessions in my area?
I am available for lifestyle portrait sessions in East Idaho (Rexburg, ID, Pocatello, ID, and Jackson, WY). I also frequently travel throughout the U.S. and abroad. Please feel free to reach out about sessions in your area!
3. Where do sessions take place?
I love to explore! I am always on the lookout for new and interesting spots to take clients. Most portrait sessions are taken at an outdoor location we have decided on together. I also offer indoor lifestyle photography.
4. What happens if we get rained out?
Unfortunately, the weather doesn’t always cooperate. If we get rained out, the session will be rescheduled within two weeks of the original date.
5. What can I do to help the session go smoothly?
I send out a confirmation email the day before your session with all the details. I suggest that you arrive 15 minutes early. This will ensure that we will get to spend the full session time having fun exploring the area and getting those great shots!
6. What should we wear for our portrait session?
Coordinating outfit is important! This doesn’t mean you have to wear matching outfits, but your looks should fit together. There are two main components to coordinating: formality and color-palette. Check out my Pinterest board for some inspiration!
7. I’m uncomfortable or super awkward in front of the camera. Can you help?
Don’t worry! Most people feel a little uncomfortable in front of the camera. (I definitely do!) It is my job to help you. I like to keep things simple by giving you prompts and little suggestions during our session to help you relax and have fun!
8. How much time should I expect the session to take?
I offer 30-minute Mini Portrait Sessions, 1-hour Lifestyle Sessions, and 2-hour Documentary Sessions. You can find more information about each session here!
9. What happens after the session? When and how will I get to see my finished pictures?
After your session, I will send you a sneak peek of your photos within 48 hours. You will then receive your full, online gallery via email within 1 week after your session.
10. How much does a session cost?
Portrait sessions start at $195. I offer Mini Portrait Sessions, Lifestyle Sessions, and Documentary Sessions. For more information about sessions, please don’t hesitate reach out!
