FAQ

WHAT KIND OF PHOTOGRAPHER ARE YOU?  My work has been described as natural, real, and sentimental with a fine art quality. I combine traditional, documentary, and lifestyle photography 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 you and/or 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 am not after that "one" shot with everyone looking at the camera and smiling. Sure, I may get some with everyone looking and smiling, but I promise if I do, it will not feel stiff or forced.

WHERE WILL MY SESSION BE HELD?   I am a natural light, on location photographer. Together we will choose the perfect location for your session!  Newborn sessions are held at your home.

WHEN DO NEWBORN SESSIONS OCCUR?  I like to do newborn sessions within the first month of life, however my style allows for some flexibility in scheduling.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?  See my WHAT TO WEAR page  for ideas on what to wear, but in a nutshell, be comfortable, be yourself!

WHEN 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. With my full regular session, I offer one simple, all-inclusive collection where you receive all the high resolution digital files delivered via direct download.  A minimum of 30 digitals files will be available to you with my regular session, click here to see what you get with my other session types. You will also have the option to buy prints and boutique products.

WHEN, HOW, AND WHERE CAN I SEE MY PHOTOS ?  Within two weeks of your photoshoot, you will receive a link to a private online gallery.

HOW DO YOU CHOOSE WHICH IMAGES GO INTO MY GALLERY FROM OUR SHOOT?  I look carefully at each and every image I capture at your session and hand select the best images. I am looking for images that represent me an artist and you and/or your family. 

HOW FAR OUT ARE YOU BOOKED? I typically book three to twelve months in advance for family shoots. If you are interested in newborn portraits, please inquire while you are pregnant. Already delivered? No problem. I try to leave openings in my schedule for last minute newborn sessions.

DO YOU OFFER MINI-SESSIONS?  Yes!  Click here for more information on session types.

DO YOU REQUIRE A DEPOSIT AT THE TIME OF BOOKING?  Yes, a $200  + VA state tax deposit is required at the time of booking to hold your specific date.

HOW DO I BOOK A SESSION WITH YOU, LISA?  I am so glad you asked!  You can e-mail me directly at  lisascontrasphotography@gmail.com or via the contact tab above.
