FAQs

– Are there any additional fees not listed? Absolutely not. I believe in straightforward pricing with no surprises. 

– How will you manage this project? The first step will always be to discuss your needs and the scope of the project. I am happy to defer to your direction or provide ideas of my own for your approval. We will agree on deadlines ahead of time and I will digitally deliver the images to you on or before the deadline (I have never missed a deadline!). I cannot emphasize enough how important customer service is to me. I am highly communicative and will ensure you are in the loop every step of the way. For shoots in which the product is shipped to me to produce the images in my location, I will notify you of when the product is received and make sure all images are delivered on time. For on-location shoots, rest assured that I am always prompt and well-prepared with the camera equipment and materials needed for a successful shoot. I will offer my expertise when needed and collaborate with you throughout.

– What will I need to do? For all the options except the on-location shoot, simply ship your product to me and I'll take care of the rest! For on-location shoots, we'll simply need to determine the place and time for the shoot and I will be there!

– Will I be responsible for prop rentals in stylized shots? I have a collection of props that include silverware, dinnerware, ramekins, cutting boards, etc. I'd be happy to use them with no additional cost to you. All of the images you see on this page utilized my props.

– What happens after you complete the photo shoot? I will professionally edit the images and deliver the final full-resolution images to you via Dropbox.

– How does payment work? A 50% retainer fee is required before I can begin an assignment. The remaining balance is due upon receiving the proofs. All payments can be made online via credit card using a secure checkout process.
