How long have you been in business?
I’ve been in business since 2011. Wow!!
Do you travel?
Yes! I love to travel. And I love to travel for photography related reasons. My last trip with this in mind was to Croatia to serve with Thrive Ministry. Amazing!! I’m also considering opening up some family or senior session options next time I’m in the Dallas area. If you’re interested in my photography services, but live out of the Chicagoland area, feel free to reach out.
What is the best time of day to have my photos taken?
Usually the best time to have a photo shoot is either the last couple hours before sunset or first thing in the morning. This timing allows us to take advantage of the best, most flattering light of the day.
How long will the session last?
Family sessions usually last about 45-75 minutes, depending on the ages of the kiddos, size of the family, and location.
Senior sessions usually last about 2-2.5 hours.
What should we wear?
I’m so glad you asked. Once you secure a session with me, I’ll send you my outfit pointers.
When do I get to see my pictures?
Your gallery is ready to be viewed about two weeks after your photo session. You and I will set up a time for you to come by my office to view your images. This will give you the opportunity to put your hands on all the product options, walk through the ordering process, and have any questions answered.
How long, after ordering, until our products are ready for us?
Most print products are ready for you within 2-3 weeks after payment. Some specialty items might need a few additional days. Digitals will be made accessible to you within 48 (non-weekend) hours after payment.
What kind of products do you offer?
There are so many wonderful photo products available these days. Besides traditional prints & digitals, some of my favorite products include metals prints, thin wrap canvases, and albums. Some unique items I offer include ornaments and acrylic blocks. You’ll have the opportunity to see them all when you come in for your gallery viewing.
What is the average investment for MHP clients?
Most clients invest between $400-1400 in products (digital &/or print). You can find more pricing details HERE.
Do you ever have sales?
In an effort to be fair to every client, I do not offer sales.
Having said that, starting with client sessions booked at 2017 prices, I am offering a 10% discount on any product order placed within the first seven days of receiving your gallery. Once the one week mark has passed, all products will be full price.
What’s in your camera bag?
Camera: 5d Mark iii
Lenses: 70-200mm, 100mm, 24-70mm, 50mm, 35mm
Do you ever volunteer your time?
I do make a deliberate effort to use my photography skills for ministry and service. Renew Project and Thrive Ministry are two amazing organizations I have had multiple opportunities to partner with over the years.
