What types of sessions do you offer?
I offer family, senior, engagement and lifestyle sessions.
What is a lifestyle session? How is it different from a portrait session?
Unlike portrait sessions where I help you pose and interact with the camera, lifestyle sessions are candid images of your everyday moments. Snuggles on your couch at home, the kiddos jumping on the bed or playing dress up, cooking dinner as a family, blowing bubbles in the backyard, baking Christmas cookies...whatever it may be!
How many photos do you typically deliver and what's your turnaround time?
While I do not guarantee a certain number of photos, as each session is unique, I can say that on average clients typically receive between 15-20 pictures for every 30 minutes of session time. The turnaround time for sessions is about two weeks.
Do you have indoor studio space available?
Yes! I rent out a beautiful studio in downtown Dayton called Lost and Found Studio and Vintage Rentals. This studio offers a vintage vibe to your session with endless props to make your session unique. There is an additional fee to book the studio space, but if you’re looking for an indoor space it’s totally worth it!
Do you ever give clients RAW files to edit themselves?
No. Every photo you'll receive will be in its finished state. Using Lightroom, I convert all RAW files to jpegs and give each image a very natural edit with a slight matte tone. A lot of computers can't read RAW format without proper software and RAW files do not reflect my style and work until they're processed and edited.
What is the best way to contact you?
The best way to contact me is through email. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or by filling out my contact form found under the "CONTACT" tab and also found here: http://www.holly-lynn-photography.com/contact.html
Due to the high volume of emails I receive this time of year, I will typically respond within 48 hours.
Do you offer a print release?
I do not offer a print release. However, my clients may print their images through Mpix (www.mpix.com) or the professional lab their gallery will be linked to. Both of those options are affordable, high quality and do not require a print release. If you have questions about this topic, email me at email@example.com.
When I gave print releases in the past, clients would only print at drugstore labs. Drugstore labs are NOT professional labs; if you print through a non-professional lab you risk undoing your investment in professional images because those labs can distort the contrast, exposure, clarity and tone of your images. Here is a great article about why you ALWAYS print through a professional lab: http://www.amandajacksonphoto.com/2014/01/13/pro-prints-vs-drugstore-prints-it-does-matter/
