FAQ -Frequently asked questions.
I have never had a portrait session - I'm not sure how it works.
That's okay! I'm here to help you. First we will do a pre-consultation. We can do this over the phone, FaceTime, meet for coffee or tea or if you need me to check out where you want to put your custom wall art; I can come to your home.
What should I wear?
First and foremost - I want you to wear what represents you and makes you feel best for your session. If you like to wear jeans and cowboy boots rather than a suit and tie then wear it. And if you are hanging it on your wall then it needs to be who you are. I can help you with these decisions if needed.
I current don't have a hair and makeup artist at this time but I do know that if you do your own makeup, Matte will look the best.
Please avoid makeup that makes your skin shine or products with SPF in them as the sunscreen tends to create shine in photos.
Avoid heavy eyeliner it will make your eyes look very heavy in photos.
When can I see my photos?
Since I do not work out of a studio. We will meet about a week or two after your session for the viewing and ordering of your photos. If you are from out of town; I do have online options we can discuss.
Invest in any Album, Story box or Wall art and your digital image will also be included.
I include complimentary facial retouching on all prints that will be printed.
They will be developed best for your print product as well.
I am a print artist. I have all my products printed at high-quality professional photo labs to achieve the best colors; whether your choice is a large Canvas hanging on your wall or an heirloom album that you can keep for generations. Digital images included with any album or wall art.
Yearbook photo - included with any purchase
I actually will size your yearbook photo and let you digitally download it to your computer to send off to the school. Over the years this seems to work the best so parents or seniors can add in quotes before sending off to the school. If you need me to do it. I will gladly help you or do it for you.
How long will it take to get my Prints after ordered and edited?
Archival quality prints do take longer due to the quality/time the professional lab puts into it.
Museum-quality fine-art prints - generally 4-6 weeks and if framed up to 10 weeks.
The Luxury line Framed canvases can take up to 7 weeks
My Albums are from Italy and generally, take about 2-4 weeks - sometimes longer depending on the season.
I get just as excited for you when your order arrives at my house. I call the minute they land on my doorstep.
