What do I wear?

The best thing is to BE COMFORTABLE but yet also reflect your own personality.  Solid colors work best! For family photos, matching colors or contrasting colors work nicely without being too "matchy".  Try to avoid big bold patterns and writing on clothing as they tend take away from your facial features.  Also consider the environment you choose to do the shoot at and what time of year it is, as you don't want to be uncomfortable!

What about props?

Before the shoot we will talk so I can get a feel for what you want out of your photos.  I will bring my own props to best fit your personality but I am all for you bringing your own props!  Do you have a special item that you would love to have showcased in your photos?  Bring it along!

Where and when?

Location will be discussed prior to your session, so you have the freedom to choose the place (i.e. parks, your favorite building, ect.) that best reflects your family or the occasion. I am pretty open as far as scheduling goes. If your session will be taking place outdoors, the best time of day for photos is either in the early morning before the sun is at its highest, or in the evening to avoid shadowing.

You took a TON of photos, why can't I get them all? Can I get the unedited photos?

At a shoot, I can take up to 500+ photos but I will only release images that are up to my standards.  I reserve the right to discard all photos that may be blurry, not in focus, etc.  I do promise you though, you WILL get a fair amount of high quality photos! It is the policy of CLP to never give unedited photos.  

How long until I receive my images?

Your proofing gallery will be online approximately 1 week after your session and you will be notified as soon as it is.  If it is a specialty session, such as a wedding, processing may take between 4 - 6 weeks.  However, this will be discussed at greater detail at the time of booking, as busy times of the year may result in longer processing times.  Rush processing is also available at an additional fee.  

CD's, prints or any other products will take an additional 2 weeks from the time of your order.
