What is a lifestyle session?
When I decided whether to label myself as a Wedding + Lifestyle or Wedding + Portrait photographer, I focused on what exactly I have to offer. A session with me does not include sitting on a chair, in a studio, in front of a vinyl background, it doesn't include external lights, and a large carrying case for my gear (of course, there's nothing wrong with this at all). To me, a lifestyle session is exactly how it sounds. It's me and my camera, photographing you and your life. It's laid back, lots of laughter, romance, and so much fun and a huge variety of posing.
What is included in your lifestyle sessions?
I offer a variety of different collections ranging from $175 - $500. If you'd like to know more about the different types of collections, inquire here.
Do you offer mini sessions?
At this time, mini sessions may be offered at random times of the year. I absolutely believe that in order to have the best experience, a minimum of one hour is best for photo sessions. It gives us time for a variety of poses, to relax, and have the best time together! If you would like to keep up with any mini session deals, I highly encourage you to follow me on social media!
What type of lifestyle shoots do you offer?
Engagement, Senior, Maternity, Newborn, In-Home, Family, Birthday Parties, Events, Reunions, and basically anything related to your life! If you're unsure, let's chat about it!
How many photos will I receive if I book a lifestyle session with you?
The number of photos your will receive varies by each session, on average I've delivered around 50-75 photos per session.
How do I get my photos?
I will typically share a little sneak peak on social media (unless otherwise requested by you), 3 - 7 days after your session. I will share all high-resolution edited photos with you through an online gallery. Lifestyle galleries will remain active for 30 days.
Do you offer print rights or can I order prints through you?
Both! The gallery that I will send you after our session is also an amazing tool to order prints from professional labs that I personally picked! Of course, if you would rather download your photos and take them to your local print shop - you are more than welcome to do so.
What happens to my photos after the 30 days?
After 30 days, your online gallery will expire. You may choose to purchase a backup subscription through the online gallery website, download your photos to your personal devices, or you may request a USB drive for an additional charge. After the 30 days, I may hold on to your photos, but the responsibility for safe keeping becomes yours.
How far do you travel for a lifestyle session?
I will travel as far as your budget allows! If you'd like to hire me for a session outside of my central service area, a travel fee may apply based on distance traveled. If you'd like to hire me for a session outside of that area, let's chat!
How do I book a lifestyle session with you?
So easy! Fill out my contact form here, the more information you share about your needs, the better! I'll get in contact with you within 2 hours and we go from there!
Do you offer USB drives for lifestyle sessions?
USB drives may be purchased for an additional cost. The online gallery allows you to download your photos directly to your computer, but if you'd rather have a USB drive we can make that happen!
What if I have more questions?
I'm an open book! Just let me know, we can even hop on call and discuss the details further! There are never too many questions!
