- How do I book a session?
There is a *$25 booking fee that is due when you book a session. Checks can be made out to: Valerie Porter. I also have google wallet. Please be on time to your appointment. If you arrive late, your $25.00 will be forfeited.
- What should I wear?
Try to stay away from shirts with busy patterns or logos. Simple patterns are fine. I love colors! Try coordinating colors if you are getting a group picture. Don't know where to start? Find an outfit that you like for one person and then find coordinating colors for the other outfits. Accessories like scarves, earrings, necklaces and other types of jewelry work nice.
- How do I choose a location?
I will email you pictures of places I have been locally. If you have a specific place in mind, let me know and I can check it out. Traveling fee may apply.
- What if the location that we want requires a fee?
It is the clients responsibility to pay for the fees.
- Do I get to choose my images?
You are guaranteed the amount of images in your package. I normally edit more pictures than you purchase so you can choose from the private online gallery.
- How do I view my images?
After your session, give me up to a week (weddings are 2 weeks) to edit the images. When I am finished, I will send you a link with a username and password to access your private online gallery. There you will be able to view your images.
- After viewing the pictures, if I want a picture to be altered in some way (ie, changed to black and white, fix misplaced hairs) will you do it?
After the images are processed and put in the online gallery, they are done. If you want further work, it will be $25 per/hour to make the changes.
- What if I want extra editing done like teeth whitening or the elimination of blemishes?
I may do extra editing on some pictures, if time allows, but extra editing like teeth whitening and elimination of blemishes are not guaranteed. If you want extra editing done after seeing the final product, it will be $25 per/hour to make the changes.
- What if I want to purchase more images than what is included in my package?
Extra images may be purchased at *$15 a piece. Or, if you want ALL the images in your gallery, it is an additional $100
- Are books available to purchase?
Yes. Check out the Prices section on the website for more information. If you don't see what you want, let me know.
