I am located in Auburn, Nebraska. My indoor studio space is located on the lower level of the Earth & Owl Yoga studio in Southside Auburn (1900 O. street - around the Courthouse square) Although this is my indoor studio space, I am available for travel! Just ask for travel rates.
How do I book my session?
Go ahead and fill out the "contact" section and I will be in touch! You are also welcome to shoot me a text or give me a call at 402-274-7236. We will chat about what type of session you are interested in & talk dates. Your deposit of $50 will be due to secure your time. The deposit will apply towards your final payment due the day of the session. The deposit is non-refundable as I will be holding that time for you.
What outdoor locations can we go to?
The world is our playground!! We can go about anywhere we choose (as long as it isn't privately owned or closed). We will chat about locations you prefer or have meaning to you. It really depends on the feel you want your photos to have - are you looking for a green outdoor look, an urban feel or maybe even a certain barn or building. Some great ideas are - the woods, a grassy field, the football or baseball field, a country road, a downtown ally, and so on.... Get to thinking about what you are wanting and we will work together to make your ideas come to life!
I have TONS of places I love to go and would be happy to help you choose a location; but I am always open to new ideas & adventures. If you do have a privately owned location you want, all I ask I ask is that you contact the owner and get permission before our session.
How will I receive my digital files & how many are included?
Your digital files will be delivered digital download. You can download and share them with your family! You & your family will also have the option to order prints and products that will be directly shipped to you. These prints will come from a professional lab.
Each session will have a minimum of digital files included - I will always give you the best of the best and share all the files I know you will want. I will never withhold beautiful images from you! All the files you receive will be retouched and enhanced by me. You will not receive any "raw" untouched files.
Why should I print my images through a Professional Lab?
You have put time, effort & money in to having quality photos done of your loved ones. Don't skimp on your prints and PLEASE don't just download to your computer and never print at all!! That would be a travesty! I want your home filled with your memories!
ALL PHOTO LABS ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL!! A "box store" photo printer will not take the care or time to print your images correctly. These printers will try to automatically match how the machine thinks the photos color & contrast should look rather than printing how it actually does. Plus they will print on cheap paper and many times the final print will be either over or under exposed. Take my word and print from a quality lab!
How is payment made?
Payment can be made via check, cash or credit card.
Where do we meet for my session?
We can meet at my Auburn studio (1900 O. street) or we can meet at our chosen location. We will discuss these details before your session.
What if the weather is bad?
Let's face it, we are at the mercy of mother nature. If it rains, we will more than likely have to reschedule your outdoor session. Wind can also be a big factor. Don't worry about a cloudy day - that won't bother us, but rain and extreme wind will. (or extreme cold) I will call you if we need to reschedule due to weather. I build in extra session times for "rain dates". If your session can only be done on a specific date, we can always move your session indoor.
What to wear?
See my Planning Tips page!
What is a shared print release?
Essentially, a print release gives you limited access to your images for printing, posting, etc. I am "sharing" the images with you for your own personal reasons and nothing else. I, as the photographer will still own the image. Please give me a call if you have any questions.
Do you charge sales tax?
Per the law, I am not required to charge you sales tax if all services are digital and digitally delivered. If you order prints or products then I will be required to charge sales tax on those items.
