FAQs { Almost Everything You Want to Ask }

{ Where are you located? }
I am located in Reno, Nevada, and am available for portrait sessions in Reno and the surrounding areas. Travel fees may apply for locations beyond 35 miles.

{ What types of sessions do you offer? }
I offer modern portrait sessions to capture all those special moments from birth to “I do”. Wedding photography is available on a select and limited basis. Beauty, boudoir and glamour sessions with a professional hair and makeup artist are also available. Please visit my Revealed page for more information on these sessions.

{ How do I schedule a session? }
If you are interested in setting up a session, please try to schedule your session as far in advance as possible to choose from the widest selection of available days and times. Call me at 775.233.8382 or email me at shootme@huongforrest.com and I will discuss days and times with you. The retainer fee is due in full in order to confirm your preferred day/time on my calendar. Once the retainer fee has been received, we will hold a consultation to discuss specific details for your session.

{ What does the retainer fee include? }
The retainer fee includes a pre-session consultation, travel to the agreed upon session location, an hour to an hour-and-a-half custom portrait session (up to three hours for newborn sessions and the use of all my beautiful newborn props), lollipops for the young and young at heart, image processing in my digital darkroom and one viewing/ordering session approximately 3 weeks after our session. The session fee does not include printed or digital products.

{ Where do your sessions take place? }
With the exception of newborn sessions, which take place in your home, most sessions take place on location. Sessions can also take place in your home for a more lifestyle shoot and if you prefer a studio, I can offer that as an option as well. We will hold a consultation session to figure out a location that best suits your lifestyle and the type of images you’re wanting. There are a lot of public places that make for great backdrops, but I’m always open to new locations. Let me know if there’s a great area in your neighborhood, if you know someone who has a charming house and front porch or a beachfront home, or a tall, grassy field, or a deserted old home that you pass every day as you’re out and about. Using an original location that no one else is using will make your pictures that much more memorable.

{ What if it rains? }
Then bring your umbrellas and get ready to sing and dance! Otherwise, in the event of inclement weather we will reschedule for a new date. Very light rain/snow does not normally pose a problem. I will try to contact you as far in advance as feasibly possible if we suspect the weather will not cooperate for an outdoor, on-location session.

{ Do you have a referral program? }
There is no greater compliment than referring my services to your friends, family and colleagues. All referrals that book and hold a session with me will earn you a $75 print credit towards a past or future session. Also, if you refer yourself back to me and hold two sessions within a 12-month calendar period, your next session’s retainer fee will be complimentary. I respect and appreciate my clients greatly and would not be able to build my business without you.
