How to Book: Super easy! There’s a link in my menu options that says BOOK. You can click that and see my current availability, choose your date and pay your non refundable retainer fee. Please plan in advance as I typically book 9-12 weeks ahead of time in my busy seasons. We will discuss your ideas, what options are best for you, and start planning your shoot the week of.
Location: I’m an “On location” kinda girl. I love creative locations – indoor and out. I have 30 acres of land in Hardin County I shoot at often, but love variety, so bring on your ideas! For newborn shoots – toddlers, I do have a small indoor studio for use at my home.
When are you available to shoot:
M-F:I do all of my portrait sessions through the week – for outdoor shoots, most often done in the evenings around 2 hours before sunset. Indoor/studio can be flexible.
Saturdays and Sundays: My days off. No.
What to wear: Something comfortable! Your favorite outfit, or your favorite jeans. It’s important to wear comfortable shoes, as we may be walking a bit outside to get you to the perfect spot. If there are several people in your family coming for photos, you don’t have to match, but I would coordinate. So, one person shouldn’t be wearing all neon colors while a few others are wearing all plaid. Feel free to bring outfit changes or any special props if you want. Need some ideas or inspiration?? Well, here ya go. http://pinterest.com/elainajanes/what-to-wear/
What to expect: Laid back and FUN! No need to stress, this is going to be an enjoyable experience, so just come ready to smile and laugh a lot. We will walk, talk, and might even get a little dirty. It will be so laid back, in fact, expect me to be wearing sweatpants and a hoodie. If you’re lucky, I might even be sporting a side ponytail. I promise, you’ll have a good time.
Payment: Non-refundable retainer due at booking. If I’m traveling outside of the Hardin County area, I’ll let you know the extra travel expenses before your session. 1-2 weeks before your appointment, I’ll email you to confirm all of our details, directions if necessary and my contact information. Balance of your session is due the week of our shoot! :)
After your session: After we are all done, I will process your photos and email a link to see them all. I know that waiting is the hardest part, so I go ahead and let you see them asap! I can usually have this to you within 7-10 days. I use my discretion, and give you the best photos from the shoots. You will be able to purchase prints and specialty items directly from this link as well as download images immediately with a print release!
