Katelyn Rose Photography FAQ’s
Choosing a photographer is a big decision that comes with A LOT of questions! To help you, I’ve compiled a list of my most frequently asked questions here.
PRICING & BOOKING
How do I reserve a session with you?
Simply go to my contact page to choose the session that fits your needs best. Once we discuss package options, a date and time, you will pay the required session retainer and you’re good to go! Your session is officially booked! Easy peasy!
When do you schedule sessions?
I prefer to schedule my sessions at sunrise and sunset to achieve that nice, soft, even light you can see in my portfolio. I also know that kids run on their own schedule so I do my best to help find a time that will give us great lighting and won’t make your kids crazy!
Do you require a session retainer?
For all of my sessions I require a 50% retainer to hold your preferred date and time. This is due at the time of booking. The remainder is due two days before we meet. Why do I do this? So we can focus solely on your session and we take the stress out of worrying about wrapping up any loose ends. The session retainer ensures that I am all yours for that specific date and time!
What forms of payment do you accept?
I make payment really simple! Are you noticing a theme here? 😉 I offer a safe and secure online payment option. All major credit and debit cards are accepted.
Do you travel?
Yes! I love to travel! If it is a location not in my location guide, and is more then 45 miles outside the zip code of 37363, there is a $35 travel fee, up to 60 miles. Have something in mind that’s farther? I will make sure to discuss all traveling costs so you can plan accordingly.
THE PHOTO SESSION
What to expect
The biggest thing for me is that you show up ready to have fun! The most helpful tip I can give you is, make sure you are ready to go beforehand. I suggest laying out everyones outfits the night before to avoid any stress right before your session. I’m all about real life moments that capture who you are as a couple and family. Don’t be afraid to let loose! After all, this is your story!
My kids are crazy and they won’t sit still for photos! Also my husband loathes having his picture taken!
It’s okay! Let your kids laugh and run around. This will actually help all of you relax and just enjoy the moment together which then leads to those beautiful, genuine smiles!
As for the boyfriends, husbands, significant others, include them in the process. I highly recommend bringing along something you both enjoy. A bottle of wine, your furry companion, anything to make this experience less stressful. We will incorporate it into your session which will lead to lots of fun that even your husband will enjoy!
What should I wear?
Your outfit choice can make a HUGE difference in the look and feel of your images. I offer a style guide for all of my clients after your session is booked to help provide some insight and offer some helpful tips.
Will you help pose us?
While I will help guide you in the right directions, I tend to use a series of prompts and fun games to catch those natural reactions. You’ll probably feel a little silly but I promise it’s worth it and so much fun!
If mother nature decides to have other plans for us, we will either try to improvise by finding a location with some coverage or we will reschedule to another date and time that fits both our schedules!
AFTER THE SESSION
How soon after our session will my gallery be ready to view?
How many images will I receive?
I have a very specific set of steps I go through with your images. I start by taking out all the images that are obviously unusable. I then select the best of the best of each image so you don’t receive duplicates. Each package I offer comes with a guaranteed number of images but in the end, you will receive all the images that meet my standard of quality.
What’s next after I have my gallery?
Enjoy and share with all your friends and loved ones! You’ll receive all your images in a private, online gallery for you to download directly from. From there you can print and share on social media to your hearts delight!
If you have any other questions or are ready to book, contact me! I am happy to help!
