Read here to see what 6 common worries are that often hold families back from booking a session (and why you don’t have to worry about them anymore!)
WHERE DO YOU LIVE AND WORK?
Currently I’m based in the West of Ireland, Galway. I’m also American so I do spend a few months of the year in between Michigan and New Mexico and love working with local families in these states. I’m also open to working abroad in other States and countries.
DO YOU CHARGE TRAVEL EXPENSES?
For distances over 50km from my home there is a €50 travel fee to anywhere within the Republic of Ireland. For travels abroad, please contact me for details.
I’VE FILLED OUT THE FORM TO BOOK A SESSION, NOW WHAT?
4-6 weeks before the session I’ll send a questionnaire which will help me get to know you and your family a bit more and what moments, interests, activities are important to your family in this stage of your lives.
A few weeks before the session we’ll have a video call and chat about plans, activities, location and any other questions you may have. I prefer video call as I like “meeting” you and your partner before the session but if you prefer phone call, we can do that too.
HOW & WHEN DO I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS/FILM?
Generally my turnaround time for a film is 6-8 weeks and for photos 2-4 weeks after the session depending on my schedule and the season. Your images will be delivered via a private online gallery and your film via a private link. Depending on your package and if you decided to order additional prints, you may also be receiving some pretty great products in the post!
WHAT IF THE WEATHER IS BAD?
Rain or shine, our session will go ahead as planned. Since our session will most likely be indoors, the weather shouldn’t affect us. If we have decided to do an outdoor location, we will have a backup indoor location decided upon ahead of time.
WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL?
I completely understand that life is busy and things don’t always go to plan. If something comes up, if possible, please let me know at least 24 hours in advance. We can then look to reschedule for a later date.
WILL MY PHOTOS BE SHARED ONLINE?
While I do love being able to share the amazing families I get the chance to work with, I completely understand if you would like to keep these images/footage of your family private. During your booking you will be able to let me know if this is something you would prefer.
DO YOU DO ANY PORTRAIT SHOTS?
Yes, I can. If you would like a few portrait shots of the family together, I’m more than happy to take 5-10 minutes during our session to do that. Just let me know.
CAN WE GET ONLY THE DIGITAL FILES?
I believe printing and displaying photos in a home are so important. They are constant little visual reminders of the love that your home is filled with and, when your children are older they will have these tangible memories to rediscover and relive. That is why all of my packages include prints.
