I'm based in Virginia Beach and serve Hampton Roads, Williamsburg, Richmond, Charlottesville & Beyond.
It's best to schedule at least 6 weeks in advance; this way it gives you plenty of time to prepare and schedule any beauty appointments. I prefer to only schedule one or two sessions per week.
Yes, I'm fully insured and I would be happy to provide your wedding venue or your engagement session location with a copy of my insurance!
Clients are held solely responsible for any entrance access fees or permits at any of their locations unless otherwise arranged with Christy Nicole Photography. This is the clients responsibility to make sure all fees and permits are taken care of prior to their scheduled session.
The options are pretty endless. I have so many locations that I love shooting at that I can recommend; parks, gardens, beaches, etc...However if theres a location that has a special meaning to you, be sure to let me know!
While I don't have an exact magic number, on average I deliver about 120 images per hour of shooting and you can expect about 150 images for your portrait gallery.
When scheduling your session, we will discuss possible rain dates. If the weather is calling for heavy rain, high winds, etc.. We can make a final decision the night before or the morning of your session depending on the weather report. I'm happy to reschedule your session if we need to!
There is no travel fee for portrait sessions within 60 miles from my VA office within the Hampton Roads and Williamsburg areas. If your locations exceeds this, I will work with you to determine the appropriate fee to cover my travel expenses.
No can do sorry! You're paying me to produce art, and editing is half of that job! I only deliver images that are fully custom edited in High Resolution JPEG.
I'm personally a fan Lighter and neutrals colors because they tend to photograph the best and aren't distracting. I will link my Pinterest boards for lots of outfit inspiration and how to coordinate colors. I will also send you links to some of my favorite shops!
I love shooting with the lighting is soft and pretty which is the most flattering on skin tones which is usually the last hour before sunset or the first hour from sunrise. Session times can vary based on the time of year you schedule your session and also if the day will be cloudy.
Usually I schedule these sessions when you're 32-36 weeks however I've also done them earlier/later. It depends on when your belly has popped. Its always best to have them done though before you start feeling really uncomfortable.
