Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do I book a session? - Send me an email at Traci@TraciElaine.co or through the form Here and we will arrange a date, have you sign a contract and pay a deposit to hold the date.
Q: Will you help me prepare for my session? - Yes. We will have an in-depth consultation and collaboratively plan the session to ensure the location, outfits, vibe etc reflect you and your brand. We can provide you of a list of recommended makeup artists if needed as well.
Q: What are the best times for a session? - If the session will be outdoors, the best time is during golden hour, an hour or two after sunrise or before sunset. The light is much softer and there are no ugly shadows on your face and no squinting. If the shoot will be indoors, there are no time limitations once the space has great light coming in most of the day.
Q: What if I chose a location with an admission charge or parking fees? - Additional fees and charges for the location are the responsibility of the client, including permits and studio rentals.
Q: Do you travel for sessions? Yes I do. I would love to travel and meet you where it is more meaningful to you. Travel fees are an extra charge.
Q: Would I get the copyrights to the images? - No. Copyright always remains with the photographer. You will receive a print release that allows you to use and print the images.
Q: Can I get the raw files? - I deliver the images fully edited in my style in high-resolution JPEG format. Raw files are extremely large, unedited and are hard to use so I do not provide them.
Q: Will you send me all the images you capture? - We guarantee a minimum of 30 images but on a standard branding session you will receive closer to 100 images. We do not provide all the images as we narrow the images down to a final set that are up to the standards you expect from us, eliminating duplications and those that are not flattering due to closed eyes, etc or for technical reasons.
Q: How long will it take to get my images? - You will receive the gallery of images within 7 -10 business days.
Q: What happens if it rains on the day of the session? - If we have arranged an outdoor session, we will either postpone or move the location. I will be checking the weather in the days leading up to the session and a decision will be made before the day of the session.
Q: How much Retouching will be done on the images? - We do minor retouching which includes removing minor skin blemishes, color correcting and limited skin smoothing. We do not do “excessive” photo editing, including body shape manipulation (example: altering body shape in any way, size or height), swapping heads, color manipulation of particular objects, removing people from photographs, changing backgrounds, adding makeup, manipulating hair styles, manipulating hair colors, removing sun tan lines, removing sun burns.
