Frequently Asked Questions
Where Will The Portrait Sessions Happen?
Portrait sessions can take place virtually anywhere! You might be surprised by the locations that make great backdrops for beautiful portraits. From the alleys of the Historic Third Ward in Downtown Milwaukee, to the scenic parks in Greenfield, we’ll find a spot that best fits your personality and your look.
And of course – I also offer portrait sessions at an incredible photo studio inside the historic Lincoln Warehouse in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for a small additional fee.
What Should I Expect?
This is definitely not an awkward department store photo shoot experience. I know it can be nerve-wracking to be in front of a camera, so I will help you throughout the shoot with posing and expression tips to make sure you look and feel your best!
Will There Be Hair and Makeup?
No, please arrive ready for the camera. I recommend getting a haircut several days in advance of the shoot, so that it’s had a chance to grow into something you’re comfortable with. Stay hydrated and get plenty of rest the night before to reduce bags under your eyes!
What Should I Wear?
Something comfortable and form-fitting! Solid colors tend to work best. Consider what you will be using these pictures for, and dress accordingly. I’m happy to offer my advice if you’d like – so feel free to ask me directly!
What If I Want More Portraits Than Are Included in My Package?
That’s great! You can purchase additional portraits at $50 per image above-and-beyond the number listed in your portrait package.
How Will I Get My Portraits?
You will review the proofs I provide via an online gallery within 2-3 days of your portrait session. Based on the package you choose, you will select the number of images you want retouched, and I will deliver the finished high-resolution files within 2-3 weeks of your shoot. Note that you have the option of choosing additional images to be retouched at a rate of $50 per photo.
Can I Edit My Portraits Myself After I Receive Them?
Just as most artists prefer you not alter their paintings in anyway, I feel the same way about my portraits. I’ve spent years perfecting my craft, and everything I do is considered and purposeful. So I would prefer if you did not perform further edits!
Can I Use These Images For Commercial Purposes?
The images from your portrait session are not meant to be used for album covers, book covers, ads, etc. They are for personal use only. I would love for you to use them on social media, your website, business cards, general publicity headshot, etc. But to be fair to others in my industry, I can’t allow commercial use unless we negotiate that use with a separate contract.
A $50 non-refundable deposit is required to book your portrait session, and will be applied to the package price. Payment must be provided in full after shooting has wrapped. All photos will be available for proofing 2-3 days after the shoot. Final images may take 2-3 weeks for completion. For commercial use and image licensing, please contact me for rates.
