FAQ

What should I wear or bring to my session?

For a full session, I suggest bringing 2-3 outfits (you can always bring more if you cant narrow it down). Bring a variety of styles and colors. Make sure to bring chapstick! No one wants pictures with chapped lips. If you need ideas on what to wear, check out my Pinterest boards: http://www.pinterest.com/cbowlden

When is the best time to schedule our photo session?

I’m big on good lighting! To get the best light, I like to schedule your session an hour or two before sunset or an hour or two after sunrise. Mornings are also really pretty, but depending on the time of year you may have to wake up early. Lighting plays a big part in how your photos will turn out, so make sure to schedule a good time.

How early should I book my session with you?

It really depends on the time of year. If you are wanting to book in the Summer months, I’d schedule something as soon as possible since those dates books in advance and very quickly. Weekends especially! You can schedule a session with me HERE.

When will my pictures be delivered to me?

Depending on the year and the type of session, this answer changes. If your session is during my busy time of year (July-October) it may take 3 weeks to get your images. If you have a wedding during my busy season (July-October), the delivery is about 3 months max. In my slow season, delivery is about 1-2 weeks for portrait sessions and 2 months for wedding photos. I work very hard to stay within the quoted times and promise you that the pictures are definitely worth the wait!

How will my pictures be delivered?

After several years mailing out CD’s and DVD’s, I have decided to go digital with my deliveries. This means that you will get an email with a link and special password that you can use to download your high resolution images. You will get your images much faster and immediately after I have completed them. You are able to share the link/password with whoever you would like to share them with. You can also place your orders using that same link and password. Once images have been downloaded to your computer, saving them is super easy: transfer them to a USB card or burn them to a disc. I do backup my images in 3 different places, so if you happen to lose your pictures down the road, just send me an email and I can resend you your pictures.

What if the weather is bad on the day of my session?

On the morning of your session, we will be in touch if the weather is bad (raining or heavy winds). We will simply reschedule to another day and hope that the weather cooperates on our second attempt.

What is your return policy?

The deposit is non-refundable.

Do you offer discounts?

I do offer mini sessions! I do have specials on occasion, so be sure to send me an email and find out if there are any promotions going on.
