"Soo many wonderful things to say about Stefani! What I had invisioned for our shoot wasn't exactly what we did, due to time change & weather complications, but Stefani was cool, calm & collected, and produced images BETTER than what I was invisioning! I couldn't be happier to have met such a wonderful person & photographer! Our Christmas cards have NEVER been cuter & I look forward to working with her again in the future! Thank you soo much!!"
I don't have a set number, but I have a baseline number of 30 generally just as a starting point. Since I am a candid photographer, I want to provide you with all the good moments. So I basically go through all of the photos from the session, cull them down to the best ones, and those are the ones I edit and give to you. I'm not stingy, but I try to not be too overwhelming. I always provide black and white versions in addition to color versions as well.
My turnaround time is about 2 weeks, and as soon as I am finished editing the photos, I upload them to a private online gallery on my website and send you the link and password. They are all downloadable!
At this time I do not provide prints, only the edited digital downloads. I provide you with a print release form and you can print them anywhere you would like! I also give you recommendations for where to print as well.
Of course, I would totally be willing to help you though if you need help with ordering prints!
Yes yes absolutely! Fur babies belong in photos too! Be prepared for it to be a little more chaotic with animals involved but it would be so worth it to include them!
Totally, I've got you covered! I have this outfit inspiration guide that covers a lot of things. Generally, it's best to dress in a general color scheme so outfits compliment each other. Mixing solids and patterns makes it really visually appealing as well.
Absolutely! Once I know what kind of look you are going for, I can give you some ideas of places! Nature, water, building, modern, epic locations, you name it, I'll give you ideas.
Yup, that is a giant issue in Oregon especially in the fall and winter. There are a few options for rain:
1. I am a full time photographer so my schedule can be flexible, and if we need to move our photo session to a different date then I totally understand and would be happy to acommodate!
2. Having a backup location. While this isn't ideal if you had your heart set on doing photos in a certain place, it is always an option. There are a few places I can suggest as a backup location for just in case, which usually consists of building overhangs, gazebo or covered areas.
3. There is a super cute little rentable studio space in downtown Salem. If weather was a huge issue, then I'm happy to book it! We can reserve it for hour increments, and it has a nonrefundable booking fee so I would require that upon booking as extra. The photo pictured was taken there!
Yassss!!! I am happy to go outside of my little area for photos! I do have a travel fee for areas that are generally 60+ miles outside of Salem, roundtrip.
