Frequently Asked Questions
How far out to do you book?
For family sessions, Jennifer is typically reserved 2-6 weeks out, with weekend dates booked 4-6 weeks out usually. Fall in Arizona is the busiest time of the year, and Jennifer typically books up for October & November by early Sept. She does not accept bookings after December 8th in cases where clients need the images back in time for holiday cards.
Thanksgiving & Christmas bookings
Jennifer always closes her studio the last two weeks of December and rarely books any sessions during those two weeks. For Thanksgiving, she sometimes books Fri, Sat or Sunday sessions depending on availability, but never on Thanksgiving Day.
How long does it take to get images back from our session?
Typically 7-10 days depending on the time of year and existing editing queue. Jennifer hand retouches all of her images to give them her signature look and feel, so that takes time, especially when there are usually several shoots in production. Once your images are ready, she will put them into an online gallery and send you the link. From there you can immediately download the number of high-res, watermark-free images specified in your package. If you need your images back within 3 days from the session, there is a rush fee added in.
How many sessions do you book a week?
In 2021, Jennifer is planning to book 3-4 sessions per week.
Do you offer Mini Sessions any time of year?
No, not at this time. Jennifer typically offers them in the fall only so that she can set up several families back to back in certain locations on certain dates. In the fall of 2021, she may only offer 2-3 dates of mini sessions at most, likely during early November. Please sign up for the newsletter below to receive word of when these will be so you can sign up for a slot after they are released in August 2021.
What do you charge for family sessions?
The starting pricing is listed above. Family packages start at $450, however, the most popular package that includes all of the high resolution, edited images is currently $625. (pricing subject to change at any time). Groups larger than 8 people start at $725. Please inquire for more specifics.
Do you offer any discounts?
Not at this time. If you follow along on Instagram, you may occasionally see "Model calls" where Jennifer will ask for family or senior models for certain shoots she designs. Typically she will have a very specific idea in mind as to the look and feel and where she wants to do the shoot. Please note however than 98% of what you see on this website feature paying clients and real families and seniors.
