COVID19 UPDATE

In light of the current pandemic, LCP will not be scheduling any sessions until the first week of June, 2020, with the exception of Cap and Gown, prom, and School minis the last week of May. These sessions will take place on the front steps of your home.If the situation seems to be safer sooner we will happily move up any sessions requesting to do so at that time. 

I am anxious to get back to seeing all your faces and capturing your life behind my lens, but will patiently wait until it is safe for both you and I to do so. 

If you have further questions or would like to schedule a session for June 1, or later please either call me at 701.799.4523 or email me at lesliec@lesliecolephotography.com

Life is Beautiful, Capture it. 

Questions?

Am I willing to Travel to a location for a photoshoot?  

Almost always YES! I love traveling and whether it be an extra 15 min drive or a few hours, If I can get it to work in my schedule then I'm in! (Traveling fees will apply)  

 

Do I Photograph Weddings?  

Typically no. I decided to draw the line at weddings folks, and here is why. They are a very big responsibility, obviously. A responsibility that requires a certain amount of equipment, expertise, and time that I don’t feel I have an adequate handle on at this point in my life and career. Full day photoshoots aren't typically something I can fit into my weekend calendar with my little mens' activities claiming most of that space already and our toddler demanding what's left of that time.  

A small quaint backyard affair for a wedding, a ceremony held at the courthouse, or even an elopement might be something I can finagle, so please don’t hesitate to ask if you are planning something along these lines. 

 

I'm having problems deciding what to wear, can you help? 

YES, YES, and YES. Please, if you have any questions regarding what to wear or where to start with colors etc. just ask! I want to be sure you have images that you will be happy with, so starting out with clothes that you are comfortable in and work well for you and/or your family are imperative.   

 

Where are LCP photoshoots held?  

That is entirely up to you! Don’t stress though, we will figure out the perfect location together. That’s my job, and a part of it that I love, finding new places or using old places in a new way is fun to me. So we will figure it out together!  

 

Does LCP supply the Props for newborn shoots or do I have to bring my own? 

Both. I have props, but always strongly encourage all my clients to bring any items they think might work well with the kind of photoshoot we are doing, newborn or not!

 

How and when do I pay for my session, and what all is included? 

Your full session payment is due at the time of your session, you can make your payment by cash check or card. At this time LCP offers only flat rates for photography. Which means EVERYTHING is included. (The only exception would be travel out of the F-M area.) 

 Your flat rate includes: 

 all edited images, 

3 week delivery on images, 

online gallery with downloading option,

print release  

 

Why does LCP do a Print Release instead of a Copyright Release, and what's the difference? 

A print release allows you to print your photos where, when, and how much you would like. A Copyright Release takes all ownership of the images from LCP and grants them to you. Which means Legally I would not be able to share your images with the world on Facebook as a sneak peek, or here on my website in my portfolio. If I am being 100% honest, I would be heartbroken not to share all my clients beautiful faces, moments, and interactions that I have been blessed with capturing. However at the end of the day, they are still images of you and your loved ones so I would ask that if you are in any way uncomfortable with your images being shared with others to just simply let me know and they will stay private, I assure you. I too enjoy to keep some special moments private as well.
