How do I book a session?
- You can pay your deposit via check or PayPal - your date/time are booked! Sessions are by appointment only.
Who will take our photos?
- I will!
Do we receive digital images?
-Yes! You will receive high-resolution, retouched digital images in a password-protected online gallery for you to download and order prints. They are unwatermarked for printing. Please see the rates menu for what is included in specific sessions and booking types.
Do I get all the photos you took?
-No, I take care of the culling process for you ;) I will remove any unuseable photos (maybe your eyes closed, your hair blew across your face, you sneezed and made a funny face, etc). You will receive the best of the best.
Can I just see the rest of the photos?
-If you are missing a specific "moment" that you thought we may have captured, please do let me know! Otherwise, you are seeing the best photos. As a professional photographer with nearly ten years experience and a Master's degree from the Corcoran College of Art + Design*, I promise I know which ones are the best :)
*Prior to the merger with GWU.
Can I have the unedited images?
-I do not make unedited images available. They are an unfinished product.
-Nope :) You hired me for my expertise in photography, and that includes retouching the photographs to deliver the highest quality, finished product to you.
All of the images you've viewed on my website are retouched, and you hired me because you liked my style, my finished work. Think of it this way - if you commission a painting, you aren't going to ask the artist to stop mid-way through his/her work and end up with a partially finished piece when you paid for a final product, or ask him for sketches leading up to the final painting, and you're probably not going to let your cousin who's got a nice set of brushes go ahead and finish the painting instead. At a restaurant you expect a fully prepared meal, the way that particular chef does it. You don't expect just a few of the ingredients on your table to work with on your own.
Can I have the raw images?
-I do not provide the .crw files.
Can I download my proof* gallery?
-No, the unedited images you see in your proof gallery are low res, unfinished photos. The final product I provide, and that you are paying for, is high res, finished images. I do not provide incomplete work to my clients. *Proof galleries are only applicable to some sessions, look under "Rates" for specific details on each booking type.
The proofs* look great as they are. Can I just download those?
-The proofs are low res, unfinished, unsharpened photos intended as a preview for viewing. I do not provide an unfinished, low res, low quality product to my clients. *Proof galleries are only applicable to some sessions, look under "Rates" for specific details on each booking type.
Where can I see more work?
-Check out Blog.RLincoln.com! You can use the drop down menu to search by category (for example, "national mall engagement", "newborn", "Lincoln Memorial family session", etc).

How long have you been in business?
-I am a passionate Argentine tango dancer, world traveler, and am trilingual.
