Most Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

What sets you apart from other photographers?

With years of training under my belt, I know how to pose and guide clients to make them feel relaxed while looking their very best. I use natural lighting as often as possible and make sure my sessions are intimate & fun! I am also permanently staying in the Stuttgart area so I will always be here for you to book a session!

Will we get the print release for our photos after our session?

Yes! Upon receiving your images, you will also get a full print release.

Where are you located?

Currently I live in Pliezhausen, near Reutlingen. But I do sessions all over Baden Württemberg!

Will my photos be posted publicly on your site or social media?

I respect your privacy and allow each client to decide whether or not they want their photos displayed publicly. I’d love to show off you & your images, if you’re game! If not, that’s okay, too.

What are your payment options?

I accept cash (euros) or IBAN transfers.

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes I offer payment plans. We can chat about what type of payment plan you’re looking for during our consultation! All payments must be paid before our session date.

What do your prices cover?

My time traveling to and from the session, culling, editing, speaking with clients, monthly business expenses, equipment, prints, location scouting, and profit.

Is a non-refundable retainer fee required?

Yes a non-refundable retainer fee is to be paid to reserve your session date. That fee will go towards your final session payment.

Will you Photoshop my images to hide any unwanted spots, wrinkles, etc?

Minor edits will be made to all of your images, but I believe our imperfections are what make us beautiful & unique. If there are specific edits you want, these will be charged according to the number and complexity of edits.

Do I have to order prints through you?

I highly recommend ordering prints through me. I use an extremely high quality printer here in Germany. Of course, you can get your prints done somewhere else but I cannot guarantee the quality. If you order through me, I do a quality check before you ever see them. If they are not up to my standard I send them back and re-order them to send to you.

What equipment do you use?

I shoot with a Nikon D750 with a Nikkor 85mm 1.8, Nikkor 50mm 1.8 lens, and Nikkor 35mm 2.8

Can I bring my pets to our session?

Yes! I encourage the whole family to come to the session, including the furry ones! I have some background in dog training and I have 2 dogs myself. I am completely comfortable with your pets coming to your session. I do ask that you bring a neutral colored leash, their favorite snacks, and toys!

How do we reserve our session date?

After you pay the 50% non-refundable retainer fee and sign the contract, your session date is reserved!

CLIENT REVIEWS

“I was looking for someone to do a couples photo shoot for my husband and I and Ashleigh commented on my post so we set up a date and place. Her prices were fair and she worked with me on price because I wanted more photos but not more time. I was a little scared being as were new to Germany and this was our first time having photos done. But she surpassed my expectations by far. She did such an amazing job. I will love and cherish the photos for a long time. And she is the sweetest person very genuine and made us feel comfortable and made sure we were comfortable doing certain poses. She has an all around great energy to her and I’d recommend her to anyone who asks”

Autumn – couples session

“We had two different sessions done by Ashleigh. The first one was out dogs and the second was some professional head shots. Both sessions came out gorgeous!! She managed to get not only the personalities of our dogs in photos but a smile from my husband. She also edited the photos very quickly, I got our most recent session within 48 hours. I could not recommend her services more, she really knows her craft and will go to any lengths for her clients”

Kiersten – pets & Business portrait session

“Since it seems FB no longer lets you leave stars, I just wanna throw out: 5 Stars! Ashleigh was amazing with my pups and really great to work with. She had some great suggestions on things I could bring along to make sure my pups were ready to take some great pics. When I arrived, I really appreciated that she had brought back-ups just in case I had forgotten! I’m talking water, treats, long leashes, everything! The location she chose was perfect, and I appreciated her patience as my two pups are huge fans of wrestling and distracting each other from sitting still. Her editing and processing time was super quick too! I would highly recommend her if you’re looking for some pet pics! I would imagine your experience would be just as amazing if you’re considering personal portraits, family pics, etc. I can’t wait to use her again!“
