FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHEN WILL I SEE MY PROOFS?

For most sessions, expect to be able to view your proofs online within 2-3 weeks.  Sometimes your wait could be longer depending on my seasonal workload.

HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO ORDER?

Your online proofing gallery will be available for 30 days in which time you should place any and all orders. A reactivation fee of $50 will be required in order to reactivate your online gallery, after your 30 days is passed.

DO I GET PROOFS WITH MY SESSION FEE?

No, all proof images can be viewed online for 30 days via your gallery. If you would like traditional 4x6 proofs, they may be ordered via the A la Carte menu, or if you would like an entire proof set (1 4x6 of each image), special discounts are available.  Just shoot me a message!

IS DESIGN WORK/COLLAGES INCLUDED IN MY SESSION?

I generally do not charge a design fee, when a minimum order requirement is met (generally equivalent to the purchase price of an 11x14. Otherwise, my rate for design work is $25/hr with a 2 hour minimum. (certain sessions include specific design at no cost - see individual session details)

WHAT TYPE OF PAYMENTS ARE ACCEPTED?

I accept cash, check and credit cards online via Paypal.

WHAT IS INCLUDED WITH A CD WITH COPYRIGHTS?

'Copyright Permissions' gives you permission to print images for personal use. For use on personal web pages, printing for home display, scrapbooks etc.  Commercial use is prohibited.  Hodge Podge retains any and all rights to the images.

WHAT IS A MOUNTING?

Several mounting options are available, but I primarily use masonite mountings. It's an 1/8" substrate which your printed image is adhered onto. This helps prevent tearing, bending etc. It also allows for the use of frames without glass which enables you to view your print without glare. I highly recommend and encourage you to mount any prints 11x14 and larger.

DO YOU HAVE A STUDIO?

Yes, I have a small, in-home studio that I primarily use for newborn sessions. On occasion, I utilize it for senior work or small children, however, my signature style depends on the use of natural light in most instances. So, the majority of all sessions are shot on location and outdoors.

WHEN AND WHERE WILL OUR SESSION BE?

I customize each shoot based on my client. However, I almost always shoot outdoors - in country fields, deserted buildings, using vintage props, perhaps.  And, almost always, sessions are scheduled for that 'golden hour' about 1-1.5 hours before sunset. This is when I do my best work and how I achieve my style that is represented in my portfolio.

WHEN SHOULD I BOOK?

ASAP - I am first and foremost the mother of 3 children, so my appointment availability is limited depending on their little lives and needs. I book up to 6 months in advance.

WHAT IF IT'S RAINING?

Beautiful images are dependent upon good weather and good lighting...and keeping my equipment in working condition is dependent upon keeping it DRY. So, sometimes it is necessary to reschedule.  I will be in touch with you prior to your session if inclement weather is in the forecast.

WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?

Please, Please, Please do NOT wear matchy matchiNESS!! I love for you to wear coordinating colors and coordinate your styles, just not everyone in the same shirt please :) I suggest thinking outside the box - mix stripes and plaids and florals, lots of layers...accessorize with hats, jewels, scarves, gloves. Most of my favorite images of my own children are when I pulled randomness out of their dresser drawers the day I had a wild hair to photograph them. 

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET MY ORDER?

Most orders are within my possession within 2-3 weeks. If you choose the $12 shipping option, orders are processed more quickly and should arrive at your door via FedEx within approximately 10 business days. For any orders that require design work, or custom CD's or other additional process, these time estimates could be higher.

My photography style, just like my personality, is a
Hodge Podge of sorts: Quirky, Creative, Classic...
I love unique compositions, sun flares, offset framing
and vintage EVERYTHING. I shoot primarily using
natural light while Mother Nature provides me with
an ever-changing backdrop. I often scout for new
locations and am always adding vintage props
to my collection.
