I would really love to meet you but I don’t live in the Boston / Kennebunkport area.
I would love to meet you too! We can set up a Skype (Video Chat) meeting or speak on the phone!
What do we need to do to book you? What is your deposit policy?
To book a session we require a deposit of half your packages total cost to secure your session time.
We don’t live in the Boston / Kennebunkport area, is travel included ?
I love to travel, travel is included within 26.2 miles of Boston & Kennebunkport (North, South, East, West). There is an additional travel fee for locations that exist beyond a marathon distance outside the Boston or Kennebunkport area. I am regularly scheduled in Boston, Kennebunkport, Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard, and New Hampshire for Family Reunions and vacations. Just contact me and we can check the calendar!
I’m a public figure, do you offer a non-disclosure agreement?
Yes. Please contact me for more information.
Do you offer packages?
I do offer packages. My packages are included in the Welcome Kit you will receive! We offer customized sessions as well, we can collaborate to plan a portrait session that is unique to you and your family.
Do you have a minimum purchase amount?
No, I work very closely WITH my client and their budget to provide what they NEED.
We have pets, are you allergic?
No! I love animals ! ALL animals ! In fact, you should check out what I like to do in my spare time — THE FARM PHOTOGRAPHY PROJECT !
I don’t like posed portraits… should I still hire a photographer/you?
Yes ! I don’t like posed portraits either – I promise it will be painless and fun! I like to speak over the phone and get to know my client beforehand, this way we can set up some sort of activity to keep things light and fun!
How long do you archive our photographs?
Images are kept for one year on our servers.
What is your print permission?
I am giving you copyright permission for personal use although Lumina Boston still retains full ownership of the photos. Digital Images are included in all packages. Lumina Boston is driven by creating artwork from your life and sharing that in your home, workplace and with friends and family; not putting your images on a digital file and letting them sit on your computer.
What if my child gets sick?
I understand that life happens. You may re-schedule one time, any session there after will have to be reserved again with an additional deposit.
What if it is raining? Snowing?
We will most likely re-schedule to a different date within the week. Although, if you want a fun shoot with umbrellas and puddles or snow, sleds, and snowmen – I’m in!
Do you offer re-touching/editing of photos?
Our editing process is just as important as the documentation of your session. Our post processing technique involves multiple rounds and hours of culling, editing, and analyzation. We select only the absolute best images to reveal to you at the Presentation. Any additional edits outside of the presentation are billed on an hourly basis.
What type of payment do you accept? When is payment due?
We accept cash, check and paypal. Payment is due at the time of your photography session. Deposit is due no later than a week prior to reserve your session time. We also offer finance plans to suit you and your family!
Help! What should I wear?
Wear colors that accent your skin tone ! Accessorize accessorize accessorize – even if you don’t normally accessorize ! We will discuss this in further detail prior to your session! Dress UP! I don’t normally like to dress up but you will be much happier you did when you see the photographs – but always keep it in ‘your’ style ! Babies – avoid purples and greens ! I’m also a big fan of creating a pinterest board !
