General FAQ's

 

What's your style?
My style is natural and relaxed with a slight vintage feel.  I guess you could say I'm somewhat of a minimalist.  I like to shoot with only the necessities.  I rarely use a flash unless I'm indoors and even then I still try to avoid it.  For portraits I typically only use my camera, a prime lens, and a reflector (if I need it).


 

Do I get a CD or something or do I have to purchase prints from you?
Instead of CD's I like to embrace the future and allow you to download your high quality images straight from my website.  Images can be downloaded onto your computer, tablet, and phone.  This will also allow you to put the files onto whatever storage device you prefer.  I've found also that many people don't have access to cd drives so in that situation this is a perfect solution.

 

Do you offer a print release?
In most situations I do.  I would love it if you would order your prints through my site, but I completely understand if you want to go through your own vendor.  I do offer a print credit to help encourage you to go through my site though.

 

Do you charge for travel?
Aside from mini sessions, the travel fee is part of the pricing up to a 50 mile radius of my home.  After 50 miles I charge $1 per mile.  (Ex. if you live in Portland my mileage from Northport will be 106 miles, causing a travel fee of $76.)

 

How do we book you?
Simply head on over to my homepage and in "Contact Me" tab is "Get In Touch".  If you can fill out the info making sure you include in the subject the type of work you need and a little more info in the message portion, that would be awesome.  As soon as I can I will get back to you quite possibly with lots of questions.

 

Do you have any online reviews that I can read?
I do.  Testimonials

Can I make prints from the images in my online album? Can I edit my images?
Yes and No! All the photos in your online album are high resolution, edited and ready to print. You can make prints anywhere you’d like and I'll even give you a list of places I recommend if that helps. You can also print directly from my website and you'l even get a print credit as a little encouragement to print through me! Be sure to tell your friends & family about that feature. Please do not edit images I've worked so hard on. One of the reasons for choosing a photographer is for their creative abilities and to edit their work is quite frowned upon, plus it's pretty much a violation of copyright laws, so it's not so much a good idea.

 

Can I upgrade my package later on during the year?
Of course you can! You're more than welcome to upgrade your option at any time.

 

Will you upload our session to your blog?
I would love to unless you don't want me to.  I love uploading to the blog because it allows me to show the work almost in the form of a story rather than just having you look at each image individually.  It really creates a nice aesthetic for the eyes.  The images that end up on the blog are also able to be pinned to Pinterest for those of you who, like me, are practically obsessed with it.

 

Do you travel? Do you do destination portraits/weddings? how does that work?
I LOVE to travel. Please give me a reason to go on a road trip! Destination weddings are custom-quoted to your specific needs, so please Get In Touch! with your destination wedding information today!  Oh, to be specific, outside of Maine becomes a destination wedding.
