FAQ

What is your style?

My style is raw and real. When it comes to shooting, I try to keep the session as light and fun as possible. Your kids will play. You will dance. I will make funny faces and sing wacky songs. We will move around a lot and I will make sure to use the entire location setting as a variety of backdrops.

When it comes to editing, you can expect your images to reflect dark contrasts, vibrant colors and a definitive mood. Each session is edited according to lighting, skin tones and energy. If you've got a certain vision in mind, I will do my absolute best to provide you with what you want!

Do you shoot in studio or outside in natural light?

I am a natural light photographer so this usually means that I shoot outdoors, preferably during the "golden hour". 30 minutes after Sunrise and 1 hour before sunset are my favorite times of day to shoot!

I do offer in studio sessions for an additional fee. Inquire for pricing.

Can you offer advice on how to dress for our session?

I recommend timeless pieces and suggest a classic/traditional wardrobe. Keep the pattern simple or wear solid colors that coordinate with everyone in the photos. Please do not wear any clothing with writing or logos on them.

General Attire Guidelines: Collaboration is key. We recommend picking colors that will compliment and not contrast your backdrop. Gentleman, I recommend jeans, boots, button down or solid colored sweater. Women, dresses should be at least knee-length. Solids and simple patterns work best. As for the kiddos, let their outfits coordinate to yours but they should not match.

Please no bright colors (hot pink, neon green, fluorescent yellow) and any bows should match in size and color. Try to keep your outfits in the primary, secondary and tertiary color palate. Also, please keep the weather in the back of your mind. Hats, gloves and coats can be removed for photos if it is cold!

Most of all though, dress comfortably. I am a mover & a shaker and I promise I will ask you to stand, sit, jump, hike and play with your kiddos so remember to wear shoes that are comfy and clothes that will allow you to move freely.

What kind of gear do you use?

I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark III. The lenses in my kit include a 24-107mm, a 50mm, a 35mm, an 85mm and a 70-300mm. I carry 3 backup batteries, multiple CF cards to capture your RAW images and a Speedlite Flash.

Do I have to order prints through you?

Nope. Your sessions include a print release so you can print wherever you would like. When you receive your gallery, I will send recommendations for photo labs where my camera is calibrated so you can receive the best quality images at an affordable rate. If you would like to order professional prints through me, I am happy to send you a price sheet!

When should I book?

For newborns, please schedule your session when baby is between 5 and 21 days old. The newer, the tinier, the sleepier, the more we can pose your bundle of joy!

Maternity sessions should be taken 2 months before your due date. Aim for somewhere between 30 and 36 weeks along!

Fresh 48 Sessions should be booked at least 2 months in advance.

For portraits, whenever you are ready, let me know and I will get you on our calendar. We appreciate a 3 weeks notice but we understand if you need to book an impromptu session last minute!

Where do you offer your services?

I currently live and operate The Rustie Nail in the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex but I travel back to my roots in the Laurel Highlands of Pennsylvania several times a year for sessions. I am willing to travel outside of these areas for an additional rate. Inquire travel dates at therustienailhead@gmail.com.

How long is my turnaround time for image viewing?

I do my absolute best to turn your photos around in 2-3 weeks from the day of your shoot. Mini Sessions are an exception to this. Depending on how many I book in each season, the turnaround for Minis can be an additional week.

How can I pay?

I accept payment in the form of ApplePay, Venmo, PayPal (+$7 surcharge), cash or check written out to Angelina Norris.
