What To Expect

     Thank you for your interest in Nichole Kate Photography, I would love the opportunity to work with you.  My sessions tend to be very relaxed and full of conversation.  Hopefully this information will give you an idea of what to expect should you book a portrait session with me.  If you have any questions regarding this information please feel free to email me or give me a call.

  • I will be mailing you a photography contract within a couple of days of your decision to book a session.   You will also receive some information about what to expect regarding the specific session your are booking.
  • Most sessions will last between 1-3 hours depending on the type of the session booked. (Mini sessions will take around 20-30 min)
  • In 1-2 days following your session I will post a sneak peek on my Facebook page: www.facebook.com/NicholeKatePhotography.
  • In 2-3 weeks I will post a private online gallery with your proofs.  Your online gallery will be available for you to view for 2 weeks.  You will need to place all orders within this time frame.
  • All orders can be placed through my website with the exception of CD's.  CD's will be mailed out after I receive full payment.


Picking your location

     Session locations can be endless as long as it's a safe location for everyone.  Prior to your session we will talk about the feel you want your images to have and we can discuss possible locations.  During the year when the weather permits I almost always suggest an outdoor session, but indoors is an option too.  Since I do not have a photography studio, your house now becomes one.  Don't worry, I have all the equipment, backdrops and props, you just provide the location. 


What will the Session be like?

     If we are shooting outside on location I will be moving around, sometimes to multiple spots in order to find a variety of scenery, colors, and light.  If the session includes your child or children you are more than welcome to help out or just step back and watch as long as you stay nearby.  Expect to walk around some and just stop at spots that I think would photograph well, I'll direct you if needed.

     If I am coming to your home for an indoor session I will arrive a little early just to take a look around to find the best light possible.  We may have to move around some furniture or decorations so it is helpful if you tidy up a bit before I arrive, but the house definitely does not need to be spotless. 

     Many clients come to me and have a specific pose or some ideas of their own.  I am more than willing to try them, but it's also important to me to stick to my personal style as well.  If you have specific ideas please bring them up before the session so I can come prepared.


Sickness and Weather-Related Issues

     If someone is sick just let me know and we will reschedule as soon as possible.   Weather is so unpredictable here so most often I will watch the weather reports up until that day and reschedule when need be.  Mainly weather rescheduling will only be for high winds and storms.

     My cancellation policy will be written out in the contract.
