What subject matter do you photograph?

I primarily photograph (and am most passionate about) children and families.  I do take head shot clients and high school seniors.  I am also available to do event photography.  I’m currently not booking weddings. 

Do you offer the sale of digital files?

Absolutely. If you choose The Digital Session you will get 10 digital images with your session fee.  If you need more digital files they are priced at $25 each or Digital Collections start at $225. Digital Files are delivered in high resolution and come standard with a Personal Print Release. Files are delivered via digital download. Jodie offers an array of other products, but Digital Collections remain the most popular. 

Do you offer mini sessions, sales or discounts?

I do offer themed mini sessions though-out the year for children only, with the exception of Family Christmas Mini Sessions in the month of November.  Watch the Promotions section of the website for upcoming mini-sessions.  

Where do you shoot?

Most shoots take place outdoors, with the exception of sessions held inside client homes. I have several go-to locations in and around Augusta and Columbia County.

What time of day do you shoot?

Fabulous sunlight is a large part of the equation when I create my imagery. For this reason, I shoot beginning two hours before sunset for all outdoor sessions. More flexibility in timing is permitted when we are shooting inside.

What is your session fee?

My session fee starts at $200 which includes 10 digital images and is required to book your appointment date.  Additional Studio Prints, Products and Digital Collections are sold separately. The average client invests anywhere from $500 to $1,500.  

How long will our session last?

On location childhood and family sessions typically last 60-120 minutes, while newborn sessions can take up to 4 hours. When you schedule your appointment, we will discuss the expected amount of shooting time.

I am a commercial client.  What is your pricing?

I charge $100 per hour for commercial clients and event coverage, with a minimum booking of 2 hours. Commercial projects vary greatly and this rate is subject to change. Hourly commercial/event rates include the release of high resolution digital files.

What is your policy on rescheduling?

Life happens. If something unavoidable arises, we will find a time in the very near future that works for both parties. Please remember that session fees are non-refundable. If the unavoidable issue is weather, all efforts will be made to re-schedule your appointment as soon as possible.

How long does it take to receive my images?

Please allow up to two weeks to receive your childhood or family portrait gallery. Commercial clients can expect to receive their imagery within 7 business days. Every effort is made to share a Facebook Sneak Peek to you prior to the full release of your gallery.
