Frequently Asked Questions

You will receive an online gallery with proofs within one week of your session.  You final, retouched images will be delivered in 3-5 weeks (depending on the time of year) after you select your favorites.

I want you to be able to print your images, make holiday cards and albums, or give them as gifts.  Thus, you will be able to download high-resolution edited jpeg files from your online gallery with print release.  

Anyone is welcome to join your Full Family session. A fee of $40 per person applies to anyone outside of your immediate family.  Simple Family sessions are limited to immediate family only due to shorter amount time we have for that session.   

Absolutely!  Pets are always welcome as long as they are friendly.

Note: a session with a pet would require more time, thus best to book Full Family session if you are thinking of including your fur baby.

I love when that happens!  I will share more details on available options to purchase additional images when you receive your proofs! 

Tell me, would you go out on a fancy date night and ask the chef for a raw slab of steak? No, most people probably wouldn’t not because the whole point of hiring a professional is to get that final work of art (not work in progress).   So simply put, I do not offer raw files because my editing and delivery process is part of the experience of working with me.

I love to travel for sessions!  Travel fee applies to locations outside of a 10 mile radius from my studio in Northfield, IL. Fees will differ depending on the location. Please reach out to discuss a specific location in mind. 

Glad you asked!  I have a number of favorite locations in Chicago and northern suburbs ranging from beach to park to urban, which I would love to share with you once you book a session with me. 

While I do individually edit each photo to ensure it’s absolutely perfect and ready for print by removing distracting objects, removing a pimple or a stains, softening skin where needed, adding coloring and tonality, and generally fixing minor imperfections which I deem distracting to overall image –  I am not a magician and prefer not to alter your overall look.  If you would like additional edits done beyond what was done to your final images, we can review on case by case basis and each image with requested edits will include an additional cost.

I offer a $50 referral discount to clients who refer a new client my way and who ends up booking a session.
