BOOKING YOUR SESSION
(and other good ideas)
BEFORE THE SHOOT
My favorite times to shoot are weekdays between 10AM-4PM, though evenings and weekends can be accommodated. Do consider the type of photos you’d like to have- if you’re only looking to shoot in the studio, then shooting after dark is better. If you want to shoot outside, it obviously has to be daytime.
Please try to book your session at least two weeks in advance. I can try to accommodate booking requests within two weeks, but chances are good I simply won’t have time. In addition, my makeup artists become easier to book with more advance notice.
Do note that while I will shoot with you tomorrow if you want to and I’m free, you should give yourself at least three weeks lead time between the shoot and your next audition. Editing, selection, retouching, printing, proofing, shipping, and resume stapling all take lots of time.
If you do have an audition coming up and need a finished headshot within a day, I do offer emergency editing and retouching for an additional $200, subject to my availability.
All bookings require a $50 deposit to secure your spot. This deposit is nonrefundable, and will be applied to the total cost of your session.
If you need to reschedule your session, please give me at least twenty-four hours notice. Sessions rescheduled outside of twenty-four hours will have their deposit applied to a new session time. Any rescheduling within twenty-four hours of a session will be considered a cancellation and will result in the forfeiture of your deposit.
If there are adverse weather conditions, illnesses, or if I am unable to shoot, resulting in a last-minute cancellation, the deposit will be applied towards a future session.
Upon booking your session, I will send you a short contract and model release form. Please read, sign, and either email back to me or bring with you to the session. If you forget, I will have copies on hand.
IT'S THE DAY OF THE SHOOT, Y'ALL
