1. How can I pay?
Sarah Sweetman Photography accepts payment by personal check, cash, major credit cards and via paypal.  Please note that a fee of $25 is applied to any check that does not clear.
2. Do you travel?
Yes, with custom photography, this session is about you.  And so, I travel anywhere and everywhere, including  to other states.  Travel within 15 miles of the zipcode 98072 doesn’t incur a travel fee.  Outside of that, travel fees apply to cover my time/travel costs.
3. What happens if our scheduled day looks like it will rain? 
With working outdoors, in the PNW, I am flexible with rescheduling as needed due to weather.  If it looks like it will be raining on our scheduled day, we can either go ahead with a suitable indoor location or reschedule for the next convenient day.
4. 1 hour doesn’t feel like enough time – can I extend the session?
Yes, of course.  There will be a small fee to cover my extra time.  We can discuss your needs while we discuss your customized session together.
5. 1 hour seems too long for my family – do you do any shorter sessions? 
Yes. I offer a limited number of mini 30 minute sessions per year.  Details of these can be found on my Sarah Sweetman Photography Facebook accountclick HERE
6. Can I include my pets in the session? 
Yes, of course – they are part of your family and this session is all about you. Please bring them along too.
7. Do you recommend us all wearing the same thing? 
No.  I believe that you should celebrate the unique differences in every member of your family has with choosing clothing that goes well together, but reflects each person’s individuality.
8. Do you shoot weddings? 
Yes.  I only do a limited number of weddings per year so please email me if you want me to capture your wedding.
9. How do I get/see my images?
After your session, I go through the images carefully, choosing the best to edit.  Once they are completed, I will meet you at your home for an in-person ordering session.  During this time, you can touch different products I have available for purchase.  We can also talk about any displays you want to create to display your photos and show your family off.  You can also choose your digital files included in the session fee.
10. Do you create web galleries so I can share them with my friends/family? 
Yes.  After our ordering session, I can create a password protected gallery for you to share your images with friends/family.
11. Do you offer payment plans? 
I do not offer payment plans on the session fee.  I will offer payment plans for print/digital file sales if needed. No product will be given without payment being made in full.  We can talk about this in detail at our ordering session.
12. My kid’s don’t like to have their picture taken.
I am an expert at bribing (with your permission) and having fun with kids of all ages/stages.  I take my time to get to know them and you might just be surprised at what I can capture during our session together.
13. Do you give out unedited files? 
No.  I want you to only have and see the best.  I do not offer originals under any circumstances.
14. Where do you recommend I get my own prints made? 
I can’t guarantee the quality of prints ordered through other companies.  I have found to be the best non-professional lab and would highly recommend them if you were not going to order through me.
