The Process

~ INVESTMENT ~

READY TO BOOK YOUR SESSION?
Let's schedule a quick call so you can share your vision with me and I will provide you with my available dates.  I take a limited number of Charlotte photography sessions per month because I want to be able to provide you with a unique and personal experience.  To secure your date and time, a signed session agreement must be completed, along with a non-refundable deposit of $100 must be paid.  Your deposit is deducted from your selected package total.   All Mini-Sessions must be paid in full at booking.

I'm delighted to assist you throughout the entire process. This includes choosing a location, coordinating outfits, and ensuring your family is prepared for an enjoyable and relaxed session. Photography sessions are meant to be a fun and happy experience.

SESSION TIME:
A typical family session usually takes around 45-60 minutes. Sessions with children may take a little longer.  My priority is to create beautiful images for your gallery, and if we go over, no worries.  Mini-Sessions are a set 20 minute session.

RESCHEDULE POLICY:
Life Happens and if you need to reschedule, please give me 24 hours notice.  If you are more than 20 minutes late, and I'm already there, the session will be rescheduled and you will forfeit your deposit.   Inclement weather is an automatic reschedule.

GALLERY DELIVERY:
Your proof gallery will be ready for viewing within seven to ten business days following your session. In each gallery, there will be one image that has been fully edited, while the rest will have basic edits applied.   Kindly select the images of your choice for full editing.  Once you have made your selection, please notify me and allow five to seven days to complete your edits.  

Upon the completion of your final edits, a fresh gallery will be provided to you. Here, you will gain access to effortlessly download your print release and all your images with a single click. Additionally, you'll find the convenient option to order prints and an array of artwork directly from your personalized gallery. This seamless approach ensures that your precious memories can be beautifully preserved in tangible formats that truly resonate.

I found CanDee through Facebook and so glad I did! My infant daughter and I did a mommy & me session with her and I couldn’t be happier with the results. She has a beautiful eye for photo composition and the play of light to achieve beautiful and unique results. Not to mention how personable she is and patient with my little one. I plan to use her again for some much needed headshots!

CanDee is creative and has a great eye for beautiful pictures.  She helps you pose naturally and knows the best lighting and angles! I did my maternity photos with her and I never imagined they would turn out so great! You can definitely tell photography is her passion!

We could not have had a better experience for our maternity photos! She is fun, talented, thoughtful, and positive! She made the experience so enjoyable and so so simple! In a busy time in our lives, her communication and processes were simple, clear, and organized!

CanDee did a wonderful job on the family photos of my husband and I for our adoption profile. She gave great advice on location, timing, and poses that really captured what we wanted in our photos. The pictures came out wonderful and her turn around time from photo shoot to final product was incredibly quick.  We love our photos and will definitely work with her again!

This is the first time we worked with a professional photographer and it was worth every penny. We wanted to capture the puppyhood of our goldendoodle and CanDee made it all so easy and smooth. She was very proactive starting from color scheme guidance to getting a squeaky toy to grab our puppy's attention. She was very punctual not only for the shoot but also in setting up the gallery. She was extremely patient with our puppy which was very important to us given he is just a puppy. Overall, it was a very very pleasant evening and a beautiful experience working with Candee. I will surely hire her for any future shoots and will certainly recommend to friends. Big shout out to CanDee!!
