Want to chat face-to-face?

Just ask us for a Skype or Face­Time con­sul­ta­tion, and we’ll be hap­py to answer any ques­tions you may have, or details you want to explain vocal­ly. Just want to put a face to a name? That’s not a prob­lem either! And, of course, if you’re local to us, a chat over cof­fee is always a pos­si­bil­i­ty.

A beautiful snowflake…

All seniors are unique and no FAQ can pos­si­bly answer all ques­tions for every­one. We’re also con­stant­ly evolv­ing in our own work and how we run our busi­ness as well. We’re always thrilled to talk about the newest things we’re cook­ing up.

Frequently Asked Questions

I like what I see. How do I book a ses­sion?
Easy! Con­tact us by click­ing “con­tact” in the menu of this page and fill out the form. This will auto­mat­i­cal­ly put you in your sys­tem. You can also call 317.344.9434 or if for some rea­son everything’s bro­ken our you’re hav­ing trou­bles, email [email pro­tect­ed]

How does pay­ment work?
Once a quote has been pre­pared for you, you’ll receive a link to set­up a pass­word for your client area. From there you can approve quotes, sign con­tracts, and pay/view your deposit and bal­ances. You’re wel­come to pay via cred­it card, Pay­Pal, or even by check. The web­site will walk you through your choic­es.

How much are prints and stuff?
You can order prints and prod­ucts through our web­site à la carte with no min­i­mums. While there are too many options to list indi­vid­u­al­ly here, to give you an idea of the price range a stan­dard 5×7 print is $8, an 8×10 is $16, a set of eight wal­lets is $14, and a 20×30 is $120.

What do I wear?
You’ll want to read this.

Who can and should I bring along with me?
Unless you are extreme­ly close and relaxed with your par­ents, we rec­om­mend they let you fly solo. And by solo, we mean feel free to bring a good friend. We want you to be you dur­ing your ses­sion and we find that many seniors have a hard time doing that with par­ents present. Of course, it comes down to what­ev­er you feel is best for you!

If you want to have some pho­tos with your best friend, sib­ling, or boyfriend/girlfriend, by all means, we can have them in a small por­tion of the shoot, but this is all about you and we don’t sug­gest tak­ing away from that. But we do under­stand that they are an impor­tant part of your life and you want to cap­ture that so we’re hap­py con­sid­er them “a prop” for a bit.

In the end, we want you as com­fort­able as pos­si­ble. Keep that con­cept in mind when decid­ing on a posse.

How many images do we get? Are all of our pho­tos edit­ed? Do I get an option for B&W/color?
There are a lot of vari­ables that deter­mine how many pho­tos we ulti­mate­ly deliv­er, but the aver­age is around 30 per loca­tion.

We find that in gen­er­al an image is either best in black & white or in col­or. So when we’re going through and edit­ing, there is a very per­son­al rhyme & rea­son to why we choose the edit­ing we do. Each pic­ture gives off a vibe that we go with. Does it come across as time­less? Maybe there is detail we just don’t want col­or to dis­tract from or the image is geo­met­ri­cal­ly based… in that case we may choose a black & white. But it’s not a mat­ter of just click­ing a but­ton. Maybe we want more dynam­ic con­trast. Maybe we want a gra­di­ent to lead the eye to a dif­fer­ent part of the pho­to. Maybe we want to slight­ly under­ex­pose to pre­serve high con­trast high­light detail.

The bot­tom line is that we will make the ini­tial choice on how an image should be edit­ed. Near 100% of the time, our clients agree with our vision… but say you need a col­or image in black and white? Let us know and we’re will­ing to give it a shot and see if it works.

I saw this cool idea on Pin­ter­est. Can we repli­cate it?
Maybe. But only maybe. And that’s a big maybe. One thing to remem­ber is that ses­sion on Pin­ter­est are, essen­tial­ly, fan­ta­sy. They aren’t yours, and no mat­ter how hard you try, there will be only a small frac­tion of sim­i­lar vari­ables. It may appear sim­ple, but there are a lot of things that make up a great pho­to. We see pho­tos in a par­tic­u­lar way, notic­ing the light, col­or, and even nat­ur­al ele­ments like wind and sun flare. We have to fac­tor in how indi­vid­ual peo­ple act, time of day, and even how tall you are! There are so many indi­vid­ual vari­ables that make up a pho­to that it’s vir­tu­al­ly impos­si­ble to dupli­cate.

Keep in mind that when we are asked to re-create, we are unable to focus on tru­ly cre­at­ing. Your por­trait ses­sion will be your own unique thing. Hire your pho­tog­ra­ph­er (even if it’s not us) based on their over­all style and capa­bil­i­ty. Trust them to cap­ture you in their vision. If they like it, you’ll love it. Promise.

Dig­i­tal or film?
Both. We shoot with top of the line Nikon cam­eras and lens­es along with a myr­i­ad of oth­er acces­sories. Dig­i­tal allows us the extreme speed and flex­i­bil­i­ty the mod­ern world of pho­tog­ra­phy expects. We have recent­ly begun incor­po­rat­ing medium-format film into some higher-end pack­ages.

How long until I can see my pho­tos?

We promise your pho­tos deliv­ered with­in 8 weeks, but always strive to be faster.

How long do I have to order prints and prod­ucts?
Six months. If you want to ensure that you have access to all pho­tos for­ev­er, be sure to order the flash dri­ve.

How far do you trav­el and what does it cost?
We will trav­el glob­al­ly, no prob­lem. But we are based out of Indi­anapo­lis.

Any dri­ve longer than 3 hours we will require a hotel room for one night plus mileage. Any dri­ve longer than 6 hours and we will require air trav­el, a rental car, a hotel room. We have fig­ured this to be on aver­age about $750 in the con­ti­nen­tal Unit­ed States. Please talk to us to get spe­cif­ic fig­ures.

Can I assist/intern?
Sor­ry, you’re amaz­ing, but we are not cur­rent­ly look­ing for assis­tants or interns. Be sure to fol­low us on Face­book so you can be first to know when we are.

Is this your full time job?
Yep. Wouldn’t want to do any­thing else.
