How far in advance should I book my graduation photo session?
It's recommended to book your session as soon as you know your graduation date. This ensures you secure your preferred time slot and allows for ample planning.
What locations do you recommend for graduation photos?
I have several suggestions based on your preferences. Among all the popular places around the UC Berkeley campus, I can mention Doe Library, Sather Gate, The Campanile, or any special meaningful place on campus. 
What should I wear for my graduation photos?
Wear something that makes you feel confident and comfortable. Solid colors or subtle patterns work well, and it's a good idea to avoid overly busy patterns or logos that can distract from your face. Usually, people wear white, this can be helpful, but it is also good to be creative. 
Can I bring props or include family/friends in the photos?
Absolutely! Bringing props or including loved ones can add a personal touch to your photos. Just let me know in advance so we can plan accordingly. You can invite one or two friends (non-graduated). Otherwise, you can book a group session.
What if the weather is bad on the day of my scheduled shoot?
We can reschedule the session for another day that works for both of us. Your comfort and the quality of your photos are a priority, so we'll make sure to find a time when the weather cooperates.
How long until I receive my edited photos?
I aim to have your edited photos ready within 1-2 weeks after the photo session. This allows me time to carefully edit each image to ensure they meet my quality standards. However, if time allows it I will send you a sneak peek or preview in the next 3 days after the shoot.
Can I order prints or other products through you?
No, unfortunately, I am not able to order prints but I can suggest some places such as Shutterfly. 
Can I bring my pet?
Yes. Feel free to bring your dog, cat, bird, or any other animal friend to your session!
Will you show me photos on your camera during the session?
Yes, but only occasionally so we can optimize the time. The less I do that, the more time I can spend shooting.
Do you give directions on posing?
Yes, we can work together on finding the best angle and pose.  Feel free to check pose ideas previous to the session.
 How will I get the photos?
I will send you a private gallery, so you can share it with your friends and relatives.
Do you send out unedited photos?
I will send you unedited photos but for you to pick your selection, I will not send you raw files though.
Do you have any advice before the photoshoot?
Yes, get enough sleep and practice self-care, don't be late to the photoshoot, and if you are planning to wear heels, bring a pair of flip-flops or extra comfortable shoes. Don't forget to bring water, a mirror, and your excitement
