I am located in Oneonta, New York. It's a great small city with many beautiful locations waiting to be the background for your photos. If you would like to have me travel to a location of your choosing, please give me a call and we can discuss that possibility.
HOW DO YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
I am laid back and try to make you feel comfortable in front to the camera. I always tell my clients that the first 10 photos are the hardest. I will talk you thru it. I will move you from one location to another and suggest various poses. Leave it to me... RELAX, we will have a great time.
WHERE DOES THE SESSION TAKE PLACE?
After having an initial conversation while booking your appointment, I will learn what type of photos you have in mind. A family can be photographed at our wonderful nearby park, on the playground or a field of flowers. If you are a High School Senior then we can also use the park but I would suggest some locations downtown for an urban feel. There are endless possibilities.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR FOR MY SENIOR PHOTOS?
If you are a High School Senior whether a Girl or a Guy, I would suggest 2-3 changes of clothing. This will give you a mix of images and we can dress according to your location. Sports or band uniforms are alway welcome. Bring your instrument or any sports equipment that you would like to be in the photos. I have even photographed senior's cars and motorcycles. Make sure your photos show your PERSONALITY!
WE ARE HAVING OUR FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHED - WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?
Keep it simple. Solid colors always work best. Do not worry about bringing a change of clothing. It's easier for everyone if they wear comfortable and coordinated outfits.
WHAT HAPPENS IF THE WEATHER IS BAD?
It happens. Don't worry we can reschedule to a date that is convenient for everyone. There is no fee for a rescheduled new date. Good weather is important and we will wait for a beautiful day.
DO YOU EDIT THE PHOTOS?
Yes, every digital file you receive is carefully retouched at no additional charge. With photo editing programs I will use special filters. Just to name a few corrections are: smoothing the skin, removing blemishes, adjusting colors. I will strive to make you look your best!
DO YOU DELIVER EVERY IMAGE YOU SHOOT?
I make sure that I take plenty of photos. I will go thru the complete session and pick the very best of the images. From there I edit. You will generally receive 50-60 completed photos on a usb drive for your personal use. You will also receive a photographer's release which gives you permission to print them at any lab of your choice.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE OUR IMAGES?
Before you leave your photo session we will book a return appointment. I generally like to have you come back in two weeks. If I finish them before, I will give you a call and surprise you with the good news.
DO YOU SUGGEST WHERE I CAN HAVE MY PHOTOS PRINTED?
Yes I can provide names of professional labs that can do a great job of printing.
DO YOU PROVIDE THE OPPORTUNITY TO ORDER PHOTO BOOKS AND ALBUMS?
Yes, your photos can be printed in a custom album. This is such a special way to showcase your favorite photos and share them with family and friends. A photo book can also be an option. The cost is less than an album but you still get a great product. During your return visit, I can show you examples and provide pricing.
