For questions please see my Q & A below.
You Got Questions, I Got Answers
Q: What kind of photography do you do?
I mostly specialize in shooting bloggers in the fashion, street style, lifestyle, social media, Instagram, and travel blogger industry. I use a Canon professional camera and my iPhone 7 Plus for quick Instagram shots, Insta stories, and Snapchat snaps. I’m currently in Los Angeles but I can also travel with you to capture daily shots of your trip for social media, blog posts..etc. I can even capture your Snapchat and Instagram stories!
Q: Do you do iPhone photography for social media?
Heck yes! I looove shooting pictures for social media especially street style photography with an iPhone. I can use your iPhone..that way you take all the images with you. I’m also happy to use my own new iPhone 7 plus that takes amazing pictures and I can even help with some editing. I can help you take your Instagram pics to the next level! I can shoot multiple outfit changes around Southern California and other locations….just ask!
Q: Do you do free photography for special projects?
I can trade with another blogger pic for pic. I can meet at a chosen location in Souther California or even in a different country with another blogger or anyone developing their personal brand, and then we can shoot each other! I’m also a fashion and lifestyle blogger and I’m always looking for someone to help me take my street style shots. I’m willing to trade and we can get to know each other for future projects.
Q: How long in advance should I book my shoot?
A: I recommend booking your shoot at least one to two weeks or more in advance, I can try to accommodate last minute requests (but unfortunately can’t make any promises). The ideal time frame to ensure you get your preferred time/date is at least 3-4 weeks in advance.
Q. Will you share my photos online without asking permission first?
A: No way! I fully respect your choice on whether you want to share or not. I only post photos of clients who have told me ‘in writing’ that I can share their photos online. If you prefer to keep your photos 100% private, I simply lock them away and they will NEVER be posted on my site or social media. Just let me know your preference.
Q: What if I need to reschedule or cancel?
A: No worries! Just hit me up via email, text or phone 48 hours or more in advance of your shoot time.
Cancel 48 hours or more in advance = 100% refund
Less than 48 hours = 50% refund (barring an emergency!)
Q: What if I am running late?
A: Please text or email me as soon as you can….traffic happens to the best of us especially here in LA. If you arrive late, please keep in mind I may have another shoot or appointment booked right after, and it’s unlikely your shoot can be extended (although it’s always possible, just ask me !). I strongly suggest arriving 30 minutes to 40 minutes early so we can get to know each other and practice your looks…just let me know how early you want to meet.
If you want to extend beyond the time of your scheduled session, add-on time is charged at a rate of $150 USD per 30 mins.
If you arrive late for your session, any time that has passed from your original start time will be forfeited, and you may shoot for the remainder of the time you have booked. The number of photos delivered may be adjusted to reflect the actual time spent together. You may add additional time if I’m free; add-on time is charged at a rate of $150 USD per 30 mins.
Q: Can I see your portfolio before I book?
A: Just trust me 😉 ! JK! All photography on this site unless noted otherwise are taken by me. The top slider, any blog post images, and Instagram (@lifestylesky.com) photos are taken 100% by me. I love fashion, travel, and beauty industry, and if you do as well we will get along just fine! My goal is to make you happy, feel comfortable working with me, and get you stunning pictures!
Q: What happens if it’s raining cats and dogs?
A: I can shoot rain or shine with cats and dogs unless it’s really horrible weather. If it’s that bad we can reschedule.
Q: Can I purchase extra time while in the middle of a shoot?
A: Yep, yep! If you want to keep going, and I’m free, you can pay the additional charge at a later time. Each additional 1 hour to 1 hour and 30 minutes increment is $150 US.
Q: When will I see my awesome photos?
A: I will send you an email or a link to your online gallery within five to seven business days or sooner.
Q: What size are the photos?
A: I provide a high-resolution print ready images. If you have a specific size requirement for a special project, please let me know when you book!
Q: Do I own the photos?
A: You have the right to use the photos for personal use, blogs, press, social media..etc (not commercial, but please feel free to ask me and I can work out a deal…I’m easy). I would love to showcase your photos in my portfolio and social media, but if you prefer to keep them private, just let me know and I will NEVER post anything publicly. I retain the copyright.
Q: Can I choose which photos I receive in my gallery?
A: I will include only the ‘best of the best’ from your shoot – as industry practice, I will remove any photos with closed eyes, and improper lighting…etc Due to the nature of candid photography, not all shots that are taken will turn out as planned, but if you have any ‘must have’ shots, I would be more than happy to prioritize those shots so that they end up in your final selection.
Q: What kind of photo editing is included in my package?
A: I shoot more street style candid images with outdoor lighting. I will do basic editing, such color balance and cropping. Photoshopping or extensive editing can be included for an extra charge..just ask.
Q: Can I book you for a commercial project?
A: For questions about commercial shoots, please contact me directly email@example.com Please email me as much information as possible on your project. I will then send you more information about commercial pricing & licensing options.
Q: Can I book you for my wedding?
A: Unfortunately at this time I don’t shoot weddings. I mostly specialize in fashion, street style, lifestyle, social media, Instagram (professional camera & iPhone shots), and travel blogger photography.
Note: Shoots more than 40-60 miles outside Los Angeles/Southern California may be subject to a travel fee.
