FAQs

Where are you based, do you travel?

I am currently based in St. Louis, MO and heck yeah I travel! I don’t usually consider myself a world traveler but I used to travel back and forth from St. Louis to New York City when I was younger. I am always down for a road trip or flight to capture your story! I will always be ready and stoked to come to you and make memories!

How many images are delivered?

The amount of images varies based on what package you choose!

Regardless of the package you chose, you will never be given mid-blinking, blurry, or unflattering photos that I know you don't want to show off.

How will I receive the images?

You will receive your images via an online gallery that will be emailed to you. You can download the high res jpegs for your printing and sharing needs. Your gallery will be online for one month after receiving it.

How will I receive the video?

You will receive the video via google drive or a flash drive. The google drive link is included and the flash drive is available for an additional cost.

When will I receive my images?

For all my portrait sessions, you will receive your gallery within two weeks of their session. I do offer rushing. That doesn’t mean I will spend less time on your gallery, I will prioritize it over other sessions on my to-do list. I offer one to two weeks (included in all of my packages), five days (additional cost), three days (additional cost), and 24 hours (additional cost).

Can I get them printed?

Yes! Every session gets a print release included in the contract so you have the freedom to get them printed anywhere you want.

What if I lose my photos?

While photos are maintained by photographer indefinitely, there is a re-upload fee past the initial four weeks while up on the online gallery. Please make sure you make copies and take precautions to back up your photos after you download them.

You can purchase a USB flash drive back up with your photos for an additional cost.

Can I post photos of social media?

Of course! Please feel free to share the photos with your friends and family! All I ask is that you credit/tag me and don’t add your own filters over the photos and you credit BeatrixLin Photography LLC. I stand true with my style and when you add your own edits and filters, you are essentially taking all the hard work I spent on editing your gorgeous images and throwing it away. Please please please don’t edit on top of the images given.

How does payment work/Is there a retainer fee?

Yes, a non-refundable retainer that is half of the session total is due when you book, the remaining balance is due two weeks prior to the session. If you are booking less than two weeks prior to the session, all will be due at once.

If you are struggling with my payment schedule and would like to create a custom payment plan to best fit you, I'd be happy to fix it to fit your needs!

CANCELLATIONS/
rescheduling?

If you’re already booked and something comes up that results in you having to cancel or reschedule, the retainer you paid at booking is non-refundable. If you wish to book a new date, you will have to pay a new retainer. The reason I do this is because I had the date and time reserved for you and when you cancel/reschedule, that’s a date that another person could have booked.

Travel fees?

Travel fees vary based on location. Please contact me directly for a quote for travels. If it is a surrounding area, fees will only be for transportation. If the location is over 4 hours away, fees will cover transportation and food. Locations over 8 hours, fees will cover transportation, food, and lodging.

Do you allow pets?

Heck yes!! Bring you fur baby! Dogs? Mhmm. Cats? Yes sir. Bird? Sure thing.

Can you photoshop me/us when editing?

No. I won't make any drastic changes to your images after the session has already occurred. I will edit out temporary blemishes but I will not alter the shape of your body or color of your skin. I like keeping my photos as natural as possible.
