My photography journey is never complete, and that is what makes it so exciting! I want to tell your stories through my lens, not just take photos. Reading this section is important to ensure that we are the right fit so we can both feel comfortable enough to make that magic happen.
I treat every image as if I am working on my own family’s photos. I select only the best images from your shoot (usually around 35 unless it is a high school senior package or event such as a wedding) to edit for your final gallery. Not only does this promote quality over quantity, but it also makes the selection process much easier for ordering prints and deciding which of your favorite images will be proudly displayed on the walls of your home.
My clients are looking for something personal, unique, and memorable. If you like the images in my portfolio and are interested in a session, please contact me via phone or email. We can discuss exactly what you are looking for and make sure we are the right fit.
Yeah, She Snaps! Photography is an on-location, natural light photographer. Please have your location directions, hours of availability, and itinerary (if wanting to go to more than 1 location) decided upon when calling to book your shoot. I charge a travel fee for locations that are more than 25 miles from my home. This fee begins at $15. Travel calculations over 50 miles or over 1 hour will be quoted and agreed upon by both parties before you commit to a session. Travel fees are NON-REFUNDABLE and must be paid in advance via PayPal. I am willing to go anywhere for a great photo, so get adventurous and let’s have fun with it!
Your session must be cancelled and rescheduled within 24 hours of shoot or it may be subject to a cancellation fee. We understand that especially with families, things come up and life is life! No problem, just let us know within 24 hours and we’ll gladly reschedule you 🙂
TIME OF DAY/LIGHTING and WEATHER Cancellation:
Often times, there are lighting opportunities at certain times of the day/year that we won’t want to miss, so when we book your session we’ll plan accordingly. Some of the most popular times to shoot a session fall about the hour before sunset so those time slots are the first one to go. Excessive heat, wind, rain, etc. can put a damper on things so in that case, we would most likely want to reschedule your session at no charge. If you are late to your session and light is lost, I will attempt to proceed as usual, but cannot guarantee number or quality of photos. Refunds will not be issued in this event.
I always feel it’s important enough to mention that ‘real life’ happens : ) While I will make every effort possible to ensure your session goes smoothly, client cooperation and cheerfulness is also expected. My philosophy for younger and older people alike is not to have everyone always say ‘cheese’ for the camera. I do enjoy a good family photo for the wall where everyone is smiling, but my usual approach is much more candid and casual. Please consider whether or not my style matches your expectations when booking a shoot.
PAYMENT, PROOFING, SNEAK PEEKS, and DELIVERY TIME:
You will be asked to secure your session with a 25% deposit at time of booking. This will secure your session date. the 25% fee will be calculated by the total amount of session fee in full and/or package fees in full. The remaining balance is due at time of session. For customers shooting at a location requiring payment to use (such as Gravel Road Traditions, Factory Franklin, The Mill Lebanon, etc.), I ask that you bring two checks. One to pay the location directly and another to pay me for your session. I also take Visa, MC, Discover, and PayPal. Once your session is complete, that’s actually when the bulk of my work begins 🙂 I will go back to work and begin the editing process. During this time, I will choose a few highlights from your session and post them on my FACEBOOK page for sneak peeks. This usually happens within a week of your shoot.
Approximately 5-6 weeks after shoot, your entire gallery of photos will be ready for proofing. This time will be lengthened for extended shoots or events such as weddings, etc. You will be quoted an *approximate* time frame for these events.
RE-Shoot/Refund policy: Occasionally, you may decide that your photos just aren’t what you’d hoped for as the best reflection of ‘you’. I pride myself in this not happening often, but I don’t ever want anyone I work with who ENTRUSTS me with their precious memories, to be unhappy. Yeah, She Snaps! Photography is all about the HAPPY so please just give me a holler and we’ll work something out. Because of the nature of my business and the fact that I put so much of my time into post- processing and editing, I do not offer refunds, however, a shorter ‘re-take’ session will be worked in at a nominal editing fee. We will work together to get it just right and make it fair for BOTH of us 🙂 Re-takes not available 14 days after galleries link is provided, as we feel this gives everyone enough time to go through them.
