General Session Information
Photography is all about capturing memories, and, generally people want those memories to be carefree and happy. Photo sessions are 1.5 – 2 hours, allowing for everyone to adjust to and be comfortable with having a photographer snapping their pictures. Everyone appears natural and at ease in the final products with no forced smiles. This also allows for plenty of poses, and individual/smaller group shots, too; it also leaves time to pose at different places within a certain location (i.e. if the location is at a park both the playground and the open field or edge of the water could be used, etc.).
I am natural-light photographer so, with the exception of infants, locations should be outdoors, and sessions are generally in the morning, or late afternoon/evening to capture the best light. Locations are the clients’ choice, although I am happy to recommend locations within a twenty mile radius of Fairfax Station, VA. If the original session date is rained out, we simply reschedule.
A non-refundable $50 deposit is due at the time of booking to hold your session date. The session fee includes the photographer’s time, talent and finishing process; prints and images are not included. A pre-session consultation regarding wardrobe, location-choice, and any other questions or concerns, is included.
