FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 


How do I schedule a photo shoot, and how do you work? 
Contact me using the form above and I will contact you by phone to introduce myself and provide a consultation. After we discuss your individualized needs,
we will schedule a date for your shoot. You will need to bring the outfits for your looks to the shoot. During the shoot, I will be showing you the photos as we go along
so that you can provide feedback and we can make corrections and discuss options. 

What forms of payment do you accept? 
Cash, check, money order, or paypal.

What is your cancellation policy? 
We require 48 hours notice.

What will I receive and when will I receive it? 
You will receive your digital images (on CD)  with any retouching requested, via standard U.S. Mail within 10 business days of  your photo shoot.
($5 shipping fee applies).

What type of camera do you use? 
I use a Nikon digital SLR.

Do you shoot in a studio or on location? 
Headshot sessions are done in studio and personal & couples photo shoots are done on location in San Francisco.

We can discuss location options during our phone consultation or while reviewing my portfolio. 

Artificial or natural light? 
I try to shoot in natural light as much as possible for both headshots and personal photo shoots, but I use an external flash unit when necessary to achieve the best look.

Do you shoot in black & white or color? 
All shoots are personalized by the client. Both black & white and color are available.

Do you offer hair styling and make-up? 
We do not currently offer these services, so you will need to make arrangements prior to the shoot if you require specific hair styles or make-up.
