What is required to book a session?

A. $100 of your session investment is due upon booking to secure your date/time. Once that is received your session is considered booked and official!

Where is your studio?

A. Our natural light studio is in downtown Fargo in the historic Ford building. Once you are booked, I will give you specific directions.

What if I need to reschedule?

A. Your session retainer is non -refundable, but is transferable to another date if you have extenuating circumstances and need to reschedule.

Do you offer digital files?

A. All of my packages include digital files with a print release that allows you to print wherever you would like.
You also do have the option to print your photos right through your gallery and those would be from my favorite professional lab that I collaborate with.

What's the best time for outdoor sessions?

A. I shoot all my outdoor sessions during the golden hour which is those last couple hours before sunset. That allows me to incorporate that soft gorgeous light you see in my work into your session as well. If we are doing a studio session, and we planned to do some outdoor urban shots downtown, we can definitely still go outside during the day or late afternoon since the tall buildings provide the shade we need from the bright midday sun.

Do you travel for sessions?

A. Yes, for an additional fee, I do travel outside of the FM for FULL family sessions, children sessions and for senior sessions. I would love to come to you whether that is your farm, country or lake home or another preferred location out of the FM.
*Inquire for travel fee quote.
Please note- I do not travel for petite sessions.

Will you photograph my extended family?

A. At this time, I am not photographing extending families, but I have some great photographer friends that do and I would be more than happy to put you in touch.
