I always like to recommend choosing a location that gets you the most "bang for your buck," or provides the most opportunity for diverse backgrounds and poses! I am happy to provide recommendations for what locations have worked best in the past and even scope up a new potential location you have in mind. I'm always looking for pretty new places to shoot!
What if an unexpected emergency arises during my session slot?
In the event of an emergency or rain during your session, I will work with you to find a new date and time that works for both of us. Please let me know as soon as possible if something happens and you can't make your slot so that we can quickly find you another spot in my schedule. I typically make a final decision on rain about 18-24 hours before your slot.
How will you guide us in posing for our photos?
While some photos from your session will of course be posed, I also aim to capture natural reactions and moments between you and your loved ones. During our time together, I may ask you funny questions, give you silly prompts, or ask you to do something that seems crazy but trust me! Not only will we have fun and laugh, but this technique helps you relax, show your true personality, and look natural in your photos.
How will you know more about our vision for our session/event?
When you book with Rooted Oak, you will receive a short survey that allows me to get to know more about you and your loved ones, as well as your style and goals for your session. Are there must-have shots you absolutely want me to capture? Is there a grouping within your family that I wouldn't think of but you want to capture? We will communicate so I am aware of all of this and more before your session or event, allowing it to not only run smoothly, but you end up with exactly what you're looking for!
What if I want to add design services to my session?
Design services can be added at anytime - either before your session or after you receive your photos. Similar to session packages, prices for design options are completely customizable based on your needs. Please let me know what you are looking for and we will come up with what works best for you!
