senior luxe editorial EXPERIENCE FAQ PAGE
You have questions....I have answers
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
I always tell my clients to allow for 4 hours. Hair and makeup usually take 90 minutes and with multiple outfit and background/lighting changes our shooting time is typically 2 hours (allowing time for changing and fun!)
Location shoots are much longer depending upon where the location is and how long it takes to get there.
What will I wear?
That is up to YOU. The beauty of a Luxe Editorial Portrait Experience, is that YOU get to dictate the style of your shoot. I have a large client wardrobe, silk fabrics as well as dresses specifically for my clients to use. We do a style call 1 to 2 weeks prior to your photoshoot to nail down the details while you share with me your vision Pinterest Board.
Do you Professionally retouch my images?
Yes! In fact, editing is kind of my jam! I am an award winning fine art photographer and all final images are signature edited in my style. YOU decide the level of editing you want!
How many images do I get?
That is totally up to YOU. There is never any obligation to purchase your images, I want you to love what you buy. You purchase your images at your ordering appointment, all images come as printed products and I have my samples in my studio for you to see to ensure that you choose the best products to showcase your images. YOU ARE ART and part of this project is to ensure that you are seen! My collections are for 8, 15 and 25 images with sets of 10 bundled beyond 25.
How much are your Collections?
My A la Carte pricing per image is $275, and collections start at $1890 with my average client purchasing my middle package of 15 images. The more you buy the per image price goes down.
I also offer amazing Wall Art from Italy, in fact, most of my products are from professional print shops in Milan, Italy. I want your images to last a lifetime and beyond and only use museum quality print products.
Do you have Wall Art?
I sell beautiful Wall Art Options, with most coming from Italy and printed on museum quality paper and products. All examples are in my home and studio. I practice what I preach and print my portraits of my family and display them all over my home.
With any collection purchase you get a 20% discount on Wall Art or if you buy 2 Wall Art pieces the 20% discount is also applied.
Where are you based and do you travel?
I am in Kirkland Washington, a suburb of Seattle. If you want me to photograph you on location there is an additional location/travel fee, dependent on where it takes place. I'm always up for a good adventure, so let's talk about making it happen!
When do I get to see my images?
At the end of your shoot or before during your style call, we schedule your ordering and reveal appointment. This happens the week after your session. This is when we look at your images and you select your favorites to purchase. All print products come with a corresponding digital image so that you can share your pics on social media and with friends and family.
How long does it take to get my purchased images?
It takes about 2 weeks to get your digital image gallery, ready to download. I order your print products at this time, and usually have them back between 4 to 6 weeks, depending on product, time of year (holidays take a bit longer) and where they come from.
