These are some questions that get asked frequently. Thank you for reading!
What is your VIP Email List?
Sign up to get information first before those who follow me on social media! I send out model calls, upcoming mini sessions and specials, etc. I promise it is not spam, and you can unsubscribe at any time :)
What types of payments do you accept?
My current booking set up accepts all major credit cards (it is processed through Square) and the retainer is due at the time of booking.
If you prefer to pay in cash or via Venmo or Zelle, please let me know before booking and I can send you a different booking link which will not ask for the retainer payment when booking.
I would like to note that when you book and pay outside of my booking site, you will have 24 hours to send at least the retainer to save your session date and time. Thank you :)
Do you accept tips?
Tips are never expected, but always appreciated when received! 💛
My current booking set up only allows for tip before the session (which is weird to me!), so please do not feel inclined to tip beforehand.
If you still would like to tip after we work together, I accept tips online, through Venmo (@lemon-lilacs-photography) or cash. Thank you!😊
I need help with inspiration and posing, is that something you do?
How many photos will I receive?
It may seem like I am taking a thousand photos, but the majority of them are duplicates. I examine each photo closely and choose the best ones to edit. My packages will state how many photos you will receive. You will have the option to purchase more photos. I do not sell RAW or unedited images.
How will I receive my photos?
Your edited photos will be uploaded to a password protected gallery. You will be able to view, share, download your photos and order prints (at an additional cost).
Can we meet before I schedule a session with you?
Of course! Please reach out to me through my contact page and I will get back to you. Please let me know if you would like to meet in person or virtually.
Why do you require a non-refundable retainer fee to save my session date & time?
I require a non-refundable retainer fee to ensure that you will not be a 'no show.' I've had the experience of confirming our appointment and then the client does not show up. It takes a lot of my time confirm appointments and travel to our agreed location, as well as I lose clients for that day.
I want to purchase a session for someone, do you offer gift cards?
Photo sessions are always a great gift for any occasion! I do offer gift cards! You can purchase a gift card for either the full amount or a different amount your family/friend can put towards their session. Gift cards cannot be refunded once purchased.
Do you offer discounts?
At the moment, I do not offer discounts. I do offer 'specials' and 'mini sessions' a few times throughout the year. Those who signed up for VIP Email List will hear about it first!
Can I include my pets?
Pets are family members, too! Plus, they make photos even more adorable and they keep us calm/entertained during our sessions.
What if I am interested in your current session "special", but my schedule does not allow me to book the session within the time frame?
I am a very busy person, so I completely understand! I offer the option of purchasing the special session (in full) and then we can book the next month or so.
Do you volunteer your photography services?
I love helping out my community and will sometimes volunteer my services. There are many factors that are considered: date, time, location, my current workload, etc. Please contact me with all the information and I will get back to you.
Do you recommend other photographers and/or vendors?
If I am not available or your session isn't my specialization, I will compile a list of names of others who do and hope that will help you find the perfect photographer to work with! :)
