Here are some pretty common questions I get along with their answers. Of course, if there is anything you don’t see here that you’re still wondering about, please shoot me an email Courtney@courtneyparisphotography.com

Why is your pricing like this? I found a lady on Craigslist who will shoot unlimited amount of time AND give me the disc for $50! Oh gosh, I’m glad you asked. I price my sessions like this so that if you need up-to-date wall portraits of your kids or a current family canvas for the living room, you can purchase exactly what you need instead of spending a large amount of money and winding up with a disc of images you will never need or get printed.   While you might get lucky and get and fabulously talented photographer on craigslist who doesn’t mind undervaluing her time and actually losing money by shooting for $50. Instead, you will probably get someone who just got a camera and has little to no training or knowledge and is excited to play. My session fee includes our shooting time along with any post processing(editing) time and a $50 print credit towards your product purchase. Please know, you’re not required to make any purchase after your session fee is paid.

Where will our session be? For family sessions, we will be picking a super scenic outdoors location. Rural, Urban, Both? It’s up to you, but don’t feel pressured to come up with the spot. I know lots of great locations and will run them past you. Have a spot in mind? That’s great, too. Just let me know! For newborns, we will be in my studio located in historic Downtown New Albany. Any age beyond that, we can do outdoors or in studio or both. Usually after our conversation about your vision, outfits and props (if any) we will come up with the perfect game plan for you! If it’s a senior session, we will start out in the studio to get some of those super fancy-like studio shots done then head out from there!

Why can’t we do our family session in the studio? Because I’m the boss! Haha, I do actually have a good reason for opting for outdoor family sessions. Not only does it capture the more relaxed and natural images, but it takes a lot of pressure off the kids. In the years I’ve been doing this I see a huge difference in kids demeanors if they’re outside vs stuffy studio session. Plus, if they need a quick 10 minute run around break, we can do that. They can explore and that makes for great images too.

What is an in-person ordering session? All full-portrait sessions come with a $50 print credit (minis do not). To view your images and order your prints, cards, canvases, etc, at the end of your portrait session we will set a viewing appointment for 1 week later. This session can be at your home or in my studio. You’ll have the opportunity to view all of your edited images and make your product selections while I am nearby to answer any questions and lend my opinion.

What does editing of images include? What does it not include? The editing of images included in your session fee are basic color adjusting and correcting if needed, image cropping, changing into black and white/sepia and moderate skin smoothing. I also delete any images which are not the best representation of your family. *blinking, moving, looking away, etc*. Editing that is available for an extra fee includes but is not limited to; blemish fixing, hair color (grays) editing. Wall-size portraits (11×14 and above) include those edits at no charge. I do not edit or minimize the size of my clients. I want you to see gorgeous images of YOU! You are amazing and beautiful as you are!!!

What should I wear? This is pretty much open to whatever your preferences are! Although I do ask that you don’t wear all white or all black shirts with jeans. It’s dated and you want your face to be the highlight of the images, not your clothes! Head over to this pinterest page I’ve made with some suggestions or starting points!
