Yikes, what do I wear?
Once booked you will receive suggestions. We will discuss clothing and all aspects of the photographic design prior to the photo session.
How long will the session last?
You can expect the typical session to last an hour and a half. Now, that is not considering pets, small kids, etc. If we have small kids, pets, are involved with a theme then allow for more time :)
A typical Senior Session is around two hours and depending on change of locations can be a little longer. Engagement Session around two hours.
Do you charge extra for outfit changes?
No, but while I recommend at least one outfit change, I don't recommend that we shoot the whole closet.
Do I need to pay a deposit?
Yes please. In order to secure your session date, I require a deposit. It is a non-refundable fee, but will be credited back to your account in print credits.
OMG, I have a pimple!
No worries, you won't notice it was there. Our retouching will take care of it, and make sure you look unbelievably awesome!
Can I bring a friend to my Senior Session?
Of course. If you just want some moral support, someone to tag along, or someone to jump in a couple of pics with you!
Can I bring an aspiring Photographer?
No, While we love to help aspiring photographers and would be happy to help your friend at another time. We also offer classes, workshops and one on one if they are interested. This time is reserved for you and giving our 100% to your session.
Can I have my vehicle in the portrait?
Sure, just please make sure it's free from dirt (nice and clean!). Unless of course, that is the look you are envisioning :) Then mud it up!
Can I bring my Pet?
Yes, Pets are allowed with reservation. Please let us know in advance that you would like to have Spot, Fido, or Ms. Kitty so we are prepared. We not only like to consult with you as a client but with our canine and feline clients as well. We would like to get to know them too.
Do you have a studio?
Yes. We have a studio location.
What if I want to do my portraits outside or at a different Location?
Of course! We love to mix it up, and we want you to be comfortable in your surroundings. During our consult we will discuss your session and we may do a combination of both! We will help with this- trust us! We will make a great team!
There are some locations that we cannot take pictures at, however. Railroad Tracks are off limits! Yes, I know- some photographers use these all the time... they look cool, but, they are PRIVATE PROPERTY! You are TRESPASSING! Yes, even if they are unused...still TRESPASSING! Besides the fact that it is punishable by law in all states it is extremely unsafe and irresponsible. Trains cannot stop like a vehicle; it takes around one mile for a train to stop, and not all sound their horns. Georgia Law below:
(GEORGIA Georgia law states that any person intruding unlawfully upon the tracks of a railroad company without consent is guilty of a misdemeanor. Ga. Code Ann. § 46-8-380 (1999). A person is guilty of criminal trespassing when he knowingly and without authority: 1) Enters upon the land or premises of a railroad or into a railroad car. 2) Enters a railroad car after being notified by the owner that such entry is forbidden. 3) Remains upon the land after being told to leave. Violation of this section is a misdemeanor. Ga. Code Ann. § 16-7-21 (1999). Any person who rides or attempts to ride on a railroad train of any character and conceals himself from the conductor or train authorities by hiding under the train, or on top of the train, or in box cars, on tinders, or elsewhere, for the purposes of avoiding payment of fare, or of stealing a ride thereon, is guilty of a misdemeanor. Ga. Code Ann. § 46-8-381 (1999).)
We have 5 acres of scene on site to choose from and several different outside locations in the area to choose from.
