Welcome to Dana Peterson Photography. It has been a fantastic year! I have a few more sessions to finish in December and then 2012 will be history. THANK YOU to such wonderful clients! I wish you a Merry Christmas. I look forward to more sessions in 2013. It will be here before we know it! On this site you will find images of many of my photo sessions, a bit from my own life and lots and lots of my own kids.
For more photos and sessions feel free to check my Facebook Page.


What kinds of Sessions do you usually shoot?

I most frequently shoot families. I ♥ 1-year old cake smash, siblings, Seniors and newborns.  I have my first wedding for 2012 scheduled and I am really excited about it!  If you have a vision of what you want, send me an e-mail at danalyn78@hotmail.com and let’s make it happen!

What sessions do you NOT shoot?
Pets.  Other than goldfish, we don’t own any and I am not confident in working with them. 

I also won’t do Boudoir Photography - sorry to disappoint!    

How much is your Session Fee?

Refer to my pricing page here: http://danapetersonphotography.blogspot.com/p/pricing-information.html   

What comes with my Standard Session Fee?
My undivided attention for approximately 1 hour (more with some sessions), professional editing of your images (by ME) and a disk of images that you get to print at your lab of choice.

How many photos will I get?
I say you will get 20 images, but let's be honest, I usually give more.  A sneak peek of images will be available generally within 3-7 days following your session.  In most cases, your disk is available 2-3 weeks later. 

How far in advance do I need to book my session?
As early as you can – contact me TODAY!  If you are scheduling a newborn session, schedule months in advance.  The session must take place within the first 3-10 days of life.

What is your cancellation policy? What if I need to reschedule?
Life is crazy and I understand that. I feel I am quite flexible.  I have a family too and would appreciate it if you give them the same respect I give you.  I would appreciate a 48 hour notification if you absolutely have to cancel.  Please do your best to keep your session time.  At this time, I do not require a nonrefundable retainer fee.  I would like to keep it that way. 

What if it rains?
Rain, snow and wind happens!  I would love all of my sessions to have perfect weather.  Unfortunately, I am not in charge of that.  J  A little bit of rain and cloudy skies don’t scare me, but my camera doesn’t really favor the rain. If I determine the weather will not allow us to get the best images possible, I’ll contact you to reschedule your session to a better day. Sometimes weather can’t be determined until the day of the session.

What if I’m late for my appointment?
Please, please, please (with sugar on top) do not be late! You have my contact information.  If you are going to even be minutes late, please notify me.  I will determine at that time if we can continue with the session. 

The best thing is to be a few minutes early! If you’re late it will cut into your session time (especially if I have another session after yours!) and no one wants that! If you have not arrived or contacted me within 15 minutes of our scheduled start time, I reserve the right to continue to my next session and/or leave the location. You will need to contact me to reschedule your session.

Do you offer any payment plans?
On regular sessions the answer is NO.  If you are scheduling a wedding with me, please call to discuss your options.  You will not receive your digital images until your order is paid in full.

Where will my session be located?
I primarily shoot in the great outdoors!  (Some mini sessions and newborn sessions will be in my home.)  I have a handful of places I like to shoot.  I love discovering new and unique locations.  So, if you have a place in mind, definitely share!

What forms of payment do you accept?
I prefer cash or check.

How do I book?
That’s easy! Just send me an e-mail with your contact information and the type of session you are seeking!

Once we finalize your date and time I will e-mail additional information to help make the most of your session, along with my policy form which you will have to return filled out before your session.
