Q: How do I view my images from our session?
Within two weeks of your session your digital gallery will be ready for you to view at the studio, I’ll shoot you an email and you can let me know what day/time works best for you to come in and view your images, choose your images for your album app and order your prints and product.
Q: What is included in my session fee?
Your session fee, creative edits, an online gallery to view at your premier ordering session, digital image downloads OR digital images on a custom USB (depending on the session you choose) w/a consent to print up to 8×10 from the lab of your choice and a photo album app for sharing and emailing is all included in your session fee. Wall portraits, custom frames and gallery wraps are offered A’ la Carte, I also offer a few print collections.
Q: How do I order prints from my session?
I offer in person sales so you can come in and look at your gorgeous images on my screen that is calibrated with my professional lab so you will know what you see on my screen is absolutely what your prints will look like. I also offer custom framing, gallery wraps of all sizes, fine art metal prints, custom heirloom albums in an array of leather and fabric covers.
Q: Do you have a minimum order requirement?
No, there is no minimum order requirement. A typical client will spend $500 to $1500 on custom photography.
So… I booked a session. What next?
Q: What if it rains or its cloudy?
If your session is outdoors I will keep a close eye on the weather report and will email you or give you a call if the weather is looking uncooperative and don’t be afraid to book a session in the late fall/winter. Some of my very most favorite images were taken in the middle of January. A cloudy overcast day can be a blessing, clouds are kind of like a giant softbox, perfect lighting!
Q: What should I wear?
I always tell my clients your clothes should reflect you, if an outfit makes you feel good then more than likely you’re going to look good. Here are a few ideas-
Don’t be afraid of color or patterns
Coordinate your outfits but don’t “match”
Try to stay away from sleeveless shirts
Layers work great! Vests, leggings under a skirt or add a scarf or big necklace
Bring along an extra shirt or two if you’re undecided, I’ll be glad to help
Choose who is the most difficult to dress, start with them and pick colors from their outfit to coordinate. If you need to snap a picture and email it to me. I’ll be glad to help! melanie@melanierunsickphotography I also have a pinterest board that I am always pinning outfits and color pallets to give you a few ideas –
Q: How much will you Photoshop my images?
I like to keep my images natural looking so I try to have a light hand with Photoshop. Sometimes I get a little more artsy and add some clouds, sunrays or a pop of color. All acne & blemishes are touched up
Q: How archival are your prints?
Images ordered through Melanie Runsick Photography should last over 100 years in a typical home display and over 200 years in dark storage
Q: Do you accept credit cards?
I sure do. Melanie Runsick Photography accepts cash, checks & all major credit cards. 8.5% sales tax is added to all session fees & print orders
