Lifestyle Portraits FAQ

How many photos will I receive from the session, and how long will the session take?
The number of images you can expect to receive in your gallery will correspond to the session package of your choice. Packages include either 20, 40, or 75 digital images as a result of the session, and they vary in duration accordingly. For full package information, scroll to the lifestyle session packages section on this page. 

Where does the session take place?
There is no typical or “go to” location for a portrait session, since these are done on location depending on the client’s specific goals. The session location can be anywhere around Charlotte, and often take place at a park, small town, school campus, cafe, or even a client’s home. Let me know what your location goals are at the time of booking, and I’ll work with you to select the best place to achieve the portrait session of your dreams. 

How and when will I receive images from the session?
Your fully edited and ready-to-download gallery will be conveniently delivered online with my professional gallery software. All images will be provided in full resolution JPEG format, perfect for sharing online AND printing as heirlooms. Images are ready within 2 weeks following your session. 

How do I schedule a time?
You can schedule the session with my online booking tool, which has my real-time availability built in. Just select the date and time, then submit the attached form and retainer payment to confirm the appointment on my calendar.

Can we schedule a session on a weekend or evening? 
I am only available for sessions during weekdays from roughly 10am to 3:30pm with rare exceptions. If a golden hour session is requested and a weekend date is necessary, please select the “Storyteller” package option at booking to schedule on a Saturday evening! 

Do I have to pay in full at booking? 
You will pay 50% of your total package fee at the time of booking, and the remainder of your package will be due before you download your gallery. 

Lifestyle Session Packages

A non-refundable retainer equal to half of the session fee is due at the time of booking. The remainder will be due before you receive your final images.
