Where do your sessions take place?

A.Most sessions take place outdoors at the forest preserve, farm, parks, downtown Arlington Heights, and other local areas.

Please discuss any special locations you wish to visit during your consultation. Some additional expenses may incur for long distance locations or those with admission fees.

Will there be a second photographer?

A.For Primary Packages, there will be one photographer and, in some cases, an assistant onsite to help with lighting and props.

What kind of gear do you use?

A.I use Canon products and a variety of lighting equipment to get the best images. We also provide some small props, such as blankets, baskets, and flowers, for use during some sessions.

Do I have to order prints through you?

A.The print services offered through my site are high-quality, ultra professional prints, perfect for display and giving as gifts to cherish for a long time. Having purchased these items myself, I recommend their services.

If you are looking for additional products, such as coffee mugs, magnets, etc., or average quality prints for everyday use, you may purchase the Digital Download package to obtain the high resolution files needed.

Can I bring my dog or any props?

A.An animal lover myself, I encourage you to bring all family members you would like in your photo, including fur friends. However, not all locations allow pets on the property. Please confirm ahead of time if the location for your shoot will allow animals.

Props, such as sports items, instruments, and keepsakes, may be brought to the session as well.

Will I get all of the photos from the session?

A.I want all my clients to experience the joy of seeing the great results of their session. For technical, and human, reasons, not all photos turn out as great as we would like. To ensure you have that great experience seeing your images the first time, only photographs that meet professional standards will be released as part of your session, print, or a la carte packages.

Will my photos have a watermark on them?

A.All proofs will include a digital watermark. Upon receipt of full payment of your order, images included in your digital or print package will be provided watermark-free.

When will I receive my photos?

A.Delivery of files depends on the date and length of the shoot. Roughly, files will be delivered within 20 business days, depending on the session. Mini-sessions have a shorter turn around time.
