Do you travel?
The prices listed above include travel from my area up to 25 miles away; I am more than happy to shoot further away as well, but there is a 1$/mile over the travel range. Ask me for a personalized list of locations in your area -- I've got go-to spots all over the Bay. Please contact me for the list of locations.
How many photos do we get?
Depending on the type of shoot, the answer varies. The shortest shoots have a guaranteed 30 final photos, while an event may generate up to 100 photos an hour. I give clients "all the best" photos, so you have a nice variety to choose from.
How do we get our photos?
Thanks to Pixieset, you can see your photos in your client gallery, and download them at full size. If anything happens, I will send you a Drop Box link. If you'd like a physical drive, I'm happy to mail you a flash drive with the final jpegs for an 80$ fee.
Do you retouch photos?
I edit all of my photos in Lightroom. I prefer a more natural style with my photography, but I am happy to do small cosmetic edits in photoshop if requested.
What's your turn around time?
I turn around a preview gallery within 2-4 business days, and return all your photos within 2-3 business weeks unless noted otherwise.
How about surprise proposals?
I LOVE a surprise proposal, and I would love to work with you to make this moment magical. Every surprise proposal package comes with a walkthrough for us before the big day, capturing the Big Moment, and then at least 30 minutes of portrait shooting after. Please contact me for a consultation for your surprise proposal; packages start at $400.
How do we book you?
Feel free to send me a message through this site, or email me at email@example.com. Just include the dates you're considering and your budget, plus contact info to schedule a consult.
If you decide to book, I will send an online invoice for the $50 deposit fee. Depending on the job type, we will sign a contract as well.
Can you help us with planning?
Absolutely! All of my shoots start with a consultation to help me learn more about the vibe and style you're going for. Have no idea? That's fine too! After our consultation, we'll lock down your location and time, and you'll be sent my Style Guide and Tips, plus the option to collaborate on a Pinterest mood board together. Need a Hair or MUA rec? Just ask! I have a list of recommended vendors from all over the Bay.
How far out do you book?
For portrait shoots, I book from 2 days to 6 months in advance. At least two weeks of notice before a shoot is preferred to make sure you don't feel rushed as a client.
What should we do for a session?
Finding inspirational photos before a shoot is so helpful; think of some poses you'd like to try -- don't worry about feeling silly! Arrive the day of with a great look that makes you feel confident and comfortable -- I love all expressions of self especially through fashion! Consider hiring a MUA or booking a salon appointment within a day of your shoot for a blow out or styling, or just show up au naturale -- this is your shoot.
So what's the deal with payment?
Great Q! For payment, there are two types of electronic invoice: one with options for Zelle, mailed check, and/or cash at our shoot, and one with options for paying by card, Paypal, Venmo, or bank transfer. For the latter, there is a 3% processing fee. Your date deposit is paid when booking, and your full balance is due within 2 weeks of you receiving your photos.
"Shelby was so great to work with! She was flexible and understanding before and during the shoot. She made us feel really comfortable and was really warm with our 1 year old who was very active during the shoot! The quality of her photos is also excellent and turn around time is fast! Will definitely be working with her again. Highly recommend!"
