How many photos will we take?
My usual shoot includes anywhere from 60-500 photos. Total quantity has to do with amount of locations and overall shooting time. In 8+ years of shooting we have never not had enough photos :)
When do I have to order my prints?
You may order them though your private gallery the day they are put in your private gallery or any time within 3 years of your shoot. If your package comes with downloads or a photo CD, you can make your prints whenever you want.
How do I get my yearbook photo?
Just tell me the photo you want to use for the yearbook photo as well as the requirements your school has for needed cropping etc. This takes about 1-3 days to turn around, so the sooner you can send those in, the better.
Can I download the photos?
