I love photographing all types of portrait sessions. If I had to pick a favorite, it would be a tie between femininity & blacktie (probably because both seem to include a beautiful dress and you know I'm a sucker for those)! But I really love subject variety and shooting in new locations, so whatever type of portrait you're in need of be it family, graduating senior, baptism, babies, I'm your girl. All sessions yield an amazing custom book that tells the story of the people I've captured that you'll treasure and want to display for years to come. Sessions also include your 5 favorite images artfully retouched and digitally finished, ready to print and decorate your walls with!
I've spent over a decade photographing all types of weddings and I've realized if I'm going to be there on your big day, I want to be there to tell the full story! So my wedding collection is a bit of an all or nothing situation. Your only task is to decide if I'm the one you want to tell your story. If I am, then you're set! I'll tell it from start to finish, including engagements, a pre-wedding bride & groom session and then all-day coverage from getting ready to your big send off. In the end you'll have hundreds of little moments captured, with your favorites highlighted in a custom album that will be your first family heirloom.
“Family shoots can be stressful, but time and time again, Liz delivers with way too many incredible photos to choose from. I'm always surprised because my children are a disaster to work with but she knows how to capture their natural expressions which makes my mom heart so happy.”
Will you help me decide what to wear?
Absolutely! We'll discuss your vision for the session and then the right attire to bring that to life. If you're dressing an entire family, I'll even put together a digital color swatch card you can send out so everyone will know what colors they need to wear. If you have a store that never lets you down, shop there. But if you're wondering how to find the most flattering styles and the exact colors you want, consider thrifting your outfit. My experience is thrift stores aren't limited to what's trendy right now so you'll have a full range of colors and fits to choose from. It does require a little digging, but I love a good treasure hunt. Maybe you will too.
Should I get my hair and makeup done?
Professional hair and makeup makes everything easier for everyone. Your proof images will need less retouching, you'll feel less stressed because someone else is in charge of making sure you don't have a bad hair day, and you will look your absolute best. With that said, if you are confident you want to rock a totally natural look, I always love celebrating raw beauty. If you decide to do your own makeup, add a little extra because makeup photographs "lighter" than it will look in the mirror.
do you charge travel or location fees?
All collections include distance parameters. If you want to shoot outside of those, then yes, you'll need to pay a small travel fee that covers my gas and extra time to drive to your desired location. If you have a specific spot in mind, just ask and I'll get you a travel quote.
As far as any on location fees, if there are any then yes, you would cover the cost of those. Examples of places that charge are Thanksgiving Point Gardens, McCune Mansion, Grand America Hotel, La Caille Restaurant, etc. If you would like to book a studio session, the studio I rent charges $65/hr.
How many pictures will we receive?
I don't limit the number of proof images I deliver to you. I want you to have all the keepers and a few bloopers too! But if you're looking for a number, you can plan on at least 40 images/per hour shooting time for most sessions. Family sessions will yield fewer images overall because it takes more time to corral and pose multiple people, especially little ones.
What's the difference between a digital proof and an art file?
Digital proofs have not been retouched or enhanced in anyway. They are basically straight out of camera. They'll still look great, and are perfect for making small prints from. Art files have been professional retouched and enhanced (including head swaps as needed for family portraits) and are ready to use for a finished art piece. They'll look amazing blown up big and hung on your walls. You will receive two copies of each image ordered as an art file, one in color and one in black and white.
When will we get our photos?
Your will receive an online gallery link with all your proof photos within ten days or less of your session. You will download all your proof images from this gallery, as well as your desired high-res art edits once they're finished. To select these edits and any images for your book or album, you'll make a favorites list within your gallery. If desired, you can order additional finished portrait art right from the gallery including prints, canvases, books, albums and even framed digital paintings which are legit works of art!
Can I add more images to my book or album?
Absolutely! Add more images to your book for $10/image and $15/image to an album.
