  • What do I wear?
    I have a Styling Guide I've created to help with this that I send once your in the schedule! I also LOVE styling clients, if you would like me to style your session please message me! In short, warm/neutral tones will always always always work best for my editing. Here are a few tips: Steer clear of flourescents. Flourescent colors tend to color cast on faces, necks, and hair and there isn't much I can do to fix it when that happens. If your session is taking place in a nature/wooded/grassy area during Spring or Summer stay away from wearing a lot of green. It's just too much green. It is a great accent color though! Remember, you want to stand out from all the green that is around you. Wear what you feel good in! If you aren't comfortable in what you're wearing for your photos, it will show. If you can't find a dress you feel good in, but rock a good pair of skinny jeans, do that! If you don't wear heels often, there's no harm in doing cute and comfy flats, boots, or pretty sandals! Layers! Layer, layer, layer! Layers add dimension and depth and that is music to a photographers ears! Is it Summer? Layer with a cute belt and pendant necklace. Fall or Winter? Cardigans, belts, a good jean jacket, statement necklaces, vests, scarves, hats, blazers, etc. Purchase clothes to FIT. And fit well. I totally understand buying a size or two up for kiddos because they just grow so fast but for photos, keep in mind that a shirt that is too large, saggy pants, and/or a jacket thats falling off the shoulders looks sloppy. You'll most likely be purchasing new clothes just for pictures so choose something that fits perfectly or even just a little bit snug. Make it look almost tailored. Go a size smaller in jackets, cardigans, or blazers. A jean jacket that is too big will not compliment shape, it hides hips and waist for moms. If you typically wear a size medium jacket, try on a small. Even if its a little snug in the shoulders, it should lay nicely around the waist and hips. Matching is OUT. Coordinating is IN. We know your family is together, we're photographing you together! So wearing the same colored shirt, pants, shoes, etc. looks a bit awkward. Coordinating color is what really brings wardrobe together. Choose two or three main colors of wardrobe and maybe one accent pop of color. Also, mixing stripes with plaids and tweeds is OK! For my editing style I strongly recommend WARM, neutral, or deep toned colors as opposed to fluorescent/neon/bright/busy colored or matching clothing. If you need any styling advice feel free to contact me! I would love to help you style your session to what's best for the setting you chose!
  • When should I schedule my session?
    Appointments are scheduled upon availability ONLY. There are no certain weekends or weekdays that are guaranteed until you make your final reservation. You'll need to book with me as soon as you can. It is understood that it is solely the clients responsibility to get in contact with the photographer to schedule any general sessions. It is recommended to book your session at least one month in advance. Please be mindful of turn-around times as well to help determine when you should book, especially if you're looking to have your images around a certain date. For example, if you would like to view your images and have them back around a specific date; messaging me a month in advance from that date to get in the schedule would not work, as your gallery would not be finished by that certain date since my schedule books at least a month out and turn around times are typically 25 business days. You would need to message me at least 2 months in advance to get in the schedule for the following month to have your images completed by the certain date in an estimated 25 business days (30-35 during busy seasons) which begin the day after your session is photographed.
  • How do I plan for my session?
    I have designed my "Investment" tabs to answer any questions you may have. If you have another question that may have not been answered please contact me.
  • Can I bring any of my own props?
    Yes! I encourage clients to bring anywhere from 1-3 props. I do try to supply everything necessary but if you would like something specific then please bring it.
  • Where do I print my images if I purchased digitals?
    I offer prints and products that I get from an amazing lab out of state. Remember you get what you pay for if you use commercial printers (in other words, print yourself at your own risk). Commercial printers are cheaper but may not have the best quality. Stephanie Fowler Photography is NOT liable for print quality, printer cropping, or coloring of any images.
  • When do I get to see my images?
    My turn around times are dependent on the package your choose. Please refer back to the Investment page to answer this question(:
  • Can I crop, edit, add filter, or alter my images?
    I would strongly encourage not doing this since it would then no longer reflect my style or work put into your images. The images are property of Stephanie Fowler Photography and may not be altered in any way. Doing so will be violation of copyright.
  • Why don't my prints look like they do in my gallery?
    If you chose to print commercially, commercial printers sometimes try to "auto-correct" the images. The computer screen I work on has been calibrated so please contact your printer if the images look different.
  • Can I post my images on social media?
    Definitely! I would also love it if you gave some sort of recognition to Stephanie Fowler Photography! Again, please do not use any sort of filter or alter the image in any way.
  • Do I get the RAW (unedited) images as well?
    The answer to this question would be no. Upon hiring a photographer you're hiring them for the work that you see in their portfolio and trusting them to give you a similar outcome to the photos they have in their portfolio, the photos that meet their artistic standards as a photographer and you possibly becoming apart of that portfolio. Which the images you are seeing in the portfolio are not SOOC (Straight Out Of Camera) or just the average or even the greatest photos from that particular session that they don't put much thought, care, and effort into... They are what the photographer feels that they've carefully selected and what is the absolute best of the greatest photos they captured from that session that they then take the time to process and hand edit into high quality images, works of art to them, expressions of who they are as an artist for other to view. They may have small straight out of camera comparisons of the before and after of their work so you can get an idea on what they ultimately transform their photos into and what form of art they are into and capable of. When you ask for the raw images it makes the photographer feel as if you do not fully trust them to select the absolute best photos of your session and present them to you and they don't want to hand over something they aren't even proud of for the world to see. No matter the amount of time put into editing each photo there is a certain type of emotion that's gets put into each one of the images making sure every little detail of the photo is perfect to them. You grow closer to the people in the images without actually growing closer to them if that makes any sense... By putting that emotion and care into making sure each image is perfect to you and presentable to your client and looking at the same faces over and over again for hours making sure every detail on them is just right. Every single photo they put the time into is really a work of art to them. The raw image is nothing but an incomplete product, just a small ingredient. There are two ingredients when it comes to creating a work of beautiful visual art/portraiture: the capturing of the moment, and the post production result. For example; If you were to go to a restaurant and the chef were to cook you something but just brought you out a plate of uncooked raw food when you paid them to provide you a freshly cooked meal. When you buy a painting from someone, you don't get all their rough drafts that were drawn up before the final product was produced. When a writer writes a book or a paper, you don't get all the crumbled up paper and rough drafts they wrote out before their book was published. When you buy a movie, you don't get the scripts or every single out take or blooper that was made before they got the right take for each scene. Photography isn't work or money to me, it's art and raw emotion and me being able to express myself and others through the images I get the opportunity to capture of them for their loved ones and everyone to see. The reason more pictures are taken than what I include in my final edits is because I shoot in manual mode as most professional photographers do. So that means I have to make rapid real-time adjustments which require test shots, changing up the composition, and solving any lighting challenges along with taking burst shots to ensure there is no one blinking, talking, moving their hair out of the way, looking elsewhere to fix something or for any particular reason, etc. There isn't just some magical setting on the camera that ensures you get the perfect shot every single time no matter the conditions you're working with, although that would be nice. But then I'm sure everyone would want to be a photographer if that were the case. I take so many excess shots to make sure I'll be able to create for you a perfect image from that setting even if it does end up just being one shot of that particular set of images. So that does not mean all of those excess shots are what will be included in the final product when it comes down to selection for production, they are what helps in being able to create the final product.
