SMALL BUSINESS PACKAGES
Q: How many photos can I expect to get from a typical session?
I don't like to put a hard number of phots on my packages because I don't want to feel limited. I want to give you all of the good images, I want to give you as much value for your hard-earned money as I possibly can. That being said, I would estimate at least 40 photos for half day sessions, and at least 80 for full day sessions. This gives you choices for different poses, as you might see two or three different options for each set up. This also means that if you're using your photos for social media, you can probably post every couple of days and get a solid 2-3 months worth of content out of a photo session.
Q: What happens in the instance of bad weather during our scheduled shoot time?
This will have to be determined on a case by case basis, but, if it is suddenly pouring during the time that your shoot was supposed to occur, we may need to postpone until the weather clears up. This not only protects my equipment, but also ensures that you get the best quality photos for your listing. I will come back and re-attempt the shoot at the first available opportunity.
Q: I really want photos but I'm worried about the cost. Do you offer payment plans?
YES. I absolutely offer payment plans! I WANT you to be able to have great photos for your business, no matter what your budget is. For most of my services, I break up the cost into 2 payments anyways to make it easier on your budgeting! If you need to split your session up into more than 2 payments, I can do that as well. If you have an outstanding balance after the photo session has taken place, your photos will be delivered to you once all remaining payments have been made. I believe that your business deserves amazing photos to help it shine--and I'll work with you to make that happen!
Q: What is the pre-session consultation? How long will it take?
The pre-session consultation will be a simple, 30 minute visit to your business location before the shoot. This gives me a chance to take in the lighting needs, the layout, and also get a good feel for what type of photos are most important to you. We can discuss any elements you'd like to avoid having photographed, and any questions or concerns you have. Sometimes, certain photos will need to be taken before you open for business, so we can put together a rough schedule of shots. This is especially helpful in instances where any employees will be photographed setting tables, preparing food/drinks, or assembling products, etc.
Q: How do the social media content blast subscriptions work?
The subscriptions come in 3, 6, or 12 month bundles. Each month for the duration of your subscription, we would schedule a time for me to come by and take some simple, clean and visually impactful photos that you can share on your social media platforms! You would let me know what you would like to have images of, and I'll make sure I'm getting the imagery and moments that are most important to you. You could use this opportunity to get photos of new menu specials each month, of customers enjoying their visit, of a special event your business is hosting or attending, simple portraits and employee highlights...the possiblities are endless!
Q: How do half day vs. full day sessions work?
A half day session would take either full morning or full afternoon. Depending on what we needed to capture (Whether or not you need twilight shots, for example), the start/end time may change. A typical 1/2 day morning shoot would run from 8am-12pm. But if we wanted to snag a sunrise in there, it may be 6:30am-10:30am. Evening would typically be 1pm-5pm, but again, if you were hoping for a sunset or twilight, we might do 4pm-8pm. Full day sessions would typically run from 8am-5pm, with a 1 hour lunch break somewhere in the middle. Full day session times can also be shifted to include either a sunrise or sunset, for example 11am-8pm.
