FAQ

What location should I go for?

Pick a place that is special and unique to your story. Where did you and your fiance first meet? Do you have a favorite family park? Are trees and nature your thing, or do you prefer alleyways with fun doors and city life? If you're having a hard time, relax! We live in one of the best locations in the United States. There are so many beautiful places to pick from! Tree Tops Park, Robbin’s Park, Deerfield Beach, Downtown Fort Lauderdale, downtown Hollywood, the beach, Wynwood, and Coral Gables are all great places to start. 

What should I wear?

This can be a session with props you bring for your family (balloons, your child's favorite toy or book, a fun sign from your home, a smash cake), or you can coordinate regular, fun outfits for your family members and keep it easy breezy. The sky is the limit and there are no rules. This is your opportunity to make it you! And remember - lots of color always make photos pop!

Do I get to see all the pictures you take?

In the editing process, I omit any and all images, test shots, and duplicates that are unflattering and not focused properly. As a firm rule, I don’t give out anything that doesn’t meet my creative standard. After that cut, you get the rest – edited and ready to print at your heart’s desire. 

Do you shoot weddings?

I do have experience in weddings, but I am not accepting weddings at this time. If you need any recommendations for another photographer, please let me know. I can refer you to a few photographers that would be willing to help you!

Do you require a deposit?

Yes. For every portrait session, there is a non-refundable $50 deposit required to secure the date for your photo session. The remainder of the session fee is due at the time of the shoot. The dates available are on a first come, first served basis. If there is a desired date between two families, the first deposit received gets the date. 

In the event of a wedding, a non-refundable deposit is required. The amount will be around 1/3 of the total package price we agree upon in our contract.

What is your rescheduling policy?

There may be times where the weather on the day of the shoot does not permit us to take photos. When that occurs, we will reschedule for a different time in the near future. 

>> A NOTE ON PHOTO SHARING:

Please feel free to share your images on all social media platforms! All I ask is that you refrain from further editing of the photos (filters, additional photoshop tweaks, etc) and share them as is. A “tag” or “mention” is not required, but definitely appreciated! I get 80% of my business through word of mouth and your support means everything!
