FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

I don't know about you, but I like to know what to expect! So, I have put together some answers to frequently asked questions for you regarding portrait sessions with Simply Corey Photography. Of course, you are always welcome to email me with any questions!

Where are you located? Where will our session take place?

I am based out of Whitesburg, GA near St. Andrew's Golf & Country Club. You are welcome to come to my outdoor location for your portrait session (available Sunday through Friday) or I can meet you at the location of your choice throughout metro Atlanta. Locations more than 40 miles away will require a small drive fee.

Do you offer studio portraits?

Yes! I have a small home studio (available Sunday through Friday) suitable for maternity, newborns, babies, children, and headshots.  For newborn sessions and corporate headshots, I can also bring a small studio set up to the location of your choice throughout metro Atlanta. Locations more than 40 miles away will require a small drive fee. 

When should our session take place?

For outdoor portrait sessions, I prefer to schedule in the late afternoon or early evening for the best light but we can make almost any time of day work! Maternity clients should schedule between 32 and 36 weeks, newborns should be photographed within the first two weeks, and babies and children are best photographed around meals and nap time routines!

How will I see my photos after my session?

I will send you an email approximately 2 weeks after your session to let you know that your private online gallery is ready. Once you confirm a good time for you to view your session, I will email you the instructions and log in information. Galleries are available for 5 consecutive days and you are more than welcome to share them with family and friends!

What kind of images should I expect?

I tend to take a mix of loosely posed and lifestyle type photos during each session. I absolutely love capturing emotion! During family portrait sessions, you can expect photos of the whole family, siblings together, individual shots of each child, parents by themselves, etc. Please let me know in advance if you have something specific in mind! Each image will be hand edited and shown in color and black & white, and when you purchase digital images, you will receive a color copy and a black & white copy. 

What is your cancellation policy?

I am always happy to reschedule (at no charge) if the weather ends up rainy or too cold on the day of our session. If your child is sick, please let me know as soon as possible so we can reschedule if necessary. Please do not try to go through with the session anyway - sick kiddos always look sick in their photos.

How much should I expect to invest in my portrait session?

Everyone’s photography needs are different but the average client spends anywhere from $800 to $1,800. You are more than welcome to request a detailed price list by sending me an email!

Do you have a special offer for returning clients?

I sure do and you can read about it here! I also give my clients bonuses for referring new clients to Simply Corey Photography!

What types of payment do you accept?

I accept cash, personal checks, debit cards and credit cards. 

How do I set up my portrait session?

First, send me an email and let me know your photography needs! From there we will talk through all of the details. Since my availability can be limited, please contact me as soon as you know I am the photographer for you!
