all the things you want to know...

WHAT KIND OF PHOTOGRAPHER ARE YOU?
My work has been described as fun, playful, natural and sentimental. I combine traditional and lifestyle photography along with family portraiture to capture genuine images for you to treasure for a lifetime. 

As your photographer, I will provide a generous gallery of images that can be displayed in your home as pieces of art or archived in a custom album to be treasured for generations. These photographs will be an investment in your family history. Images from your session often tell a story, capturing a treasured moment in time. I do not try to make you look perfect, stiff, or unnatural. I always try to get that "one" shot with everyone looking at the camera and smiling, and I promise that if we do, it will be because we were just busy having fun!! Many of your images will be interacting and connecting!!

WHERE WILL MY SESSION BE HELD?
I am a natural light, on location photographer. Together we will choose the perfect location for your session. 

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
I will send you an entire style guide with ideas, but most importantly I want you to be comfortable and be yourself.  Coordinate, don't match. There are rare occasions where everyone in the same color works, however generally you want diversity in colors and patterns. It is cheesy and out of style for everyone to be wearing jeans and white polos. When thinking about colors, choose colors that compliment each other, and chose lots of texture and layers. See this BLOG POST for more ideas.

WILL I GET MY DIGITAL PHOTOS
AFTER THE SHOOT?
Photographs grow in value over time and become family treasures. I know the importance of archiving and saving digital images. I offer one simple, all-inclusive collection where you receive all the high resolution digital files delivered via direct download and a print release. A minimum of 50 digitals files will be available to you (but usually there are more!), in both color and black and white. 

WHEN, HOW AND WHERE CAN I ORDER ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AND PRODUCTS?
Within four weeks of your shoot, you will receive a link to a private online gallery. You will be able to order additional products directly from your gallery.

HOW DO YOU CHOOSE WHICH IMAGES GO IN MY GALLERY FROM OUR SHOOT?
I look carefully at each and every image we capture at your session and hand select the best images based on composition, lighting, focus and artistry. I am looking for images that represent me as artists and your family, as each is radically unique. We guarantee minimum of 50 images, but there are usually many more included. Lucky you!

HOW FAR OUT ARE YOU BOOKED?
I'm typically booking one to three months in advance. If you're interested in a fall session get on my calendar early as my schedule fills up fast in the fall.

DO YOU OFFER MINI-SESSIONS?
Yes, only in the fall on specific dates and times. They are announced at the end of the summer. Make sure you're on my mailing list to get notified when they are available. 

HOW MUCH DOES ALL OF THIS COST?
My pricing is all-inclusive. You pay one price for ALL of the digital files. Total cost is $425 for portrait sessions. These include ALL portraits (families, maternity, seniors and children). A $50 retainer is due when booking to secure your session date. Retainers are non-refundable, but can be transferred to a new date within 6 months. 

HOW DO I BOOK A SESSION WITH LIBERTY?
I am so glad you asked! You can e-mail me directly at libertyschroen at gmail dot com or via the connect tab above.
