Frequently Asked Questions

I need to cancel my mini session spot because someone is sick/unhappy/can't come. Can I get a refund or a raincheck?

Beginning in 2023, all fees associated with mini sessions (including deposits and any balance paid) are considered non-refundable unless the event is canceled by the photographer. No rainchecks or credits will be extended if the client cancels, absolutely no exceptions. Through the years I've been extremely flexible with rescheduling when clients can't make it to a mini at the last minute, however, this situation puts me in a tough position. Location rental fees have already been paid, as well as other supplies and assistants I might need for our shoot, making a refund inconvenient. When meeting on a different date, driving roundtrip for one 15-20 minute make-up session is cost ineffective. Given these circumstances, I cannot issue refunds on any mini session fees that have been paid unless 1) the location cancels us, or 2) the weather prevents our session from taking place. If for any reason I must cancel a mini session, all fees will be promptly refunded.

We love your work, but can't afford a professional. Will you volunteer?

If you have an exceptional circumstance, I'm open to hearing more about it. However, I typically do not provide professional event coverage for free or deeply discounted rates when other vendors are being paid.

Do you offer family/senior sessions?

I'm happy to do family, senior, or themed sessions! My style is casual and organic, probably not the best fit for a client who desires a more traditionally posed final result. If you're up for a relaxed experience with movement, play, and authentic expressions, shoot me an email at or visit the Private Session Booking page to schedule. Sessions for personal use start at $400 for a 1-hour shoot.

When will I receive my images?

Turnaround time for most events is within 5 business days. This can be expedited if necessary to meet press or announcement deadlines. Partners receive their images within 3 business days.

Do you like mac & cheese and Starbucks?

Are you even a photographer if you don't like mac & cheese and Starbucks?

What is your cancelation policy?

One-time events and special projects require a non-refundable deposit to hold the date. Established, recurring clients (partners) are given flexibility and generally not required to do a deposit.

Do I have to order prints?

All images are delivered via online gallery. You can print where you like, but for convenience there is a professional quality print shop integrated into your gallery. I strongly suggest using a high-quality image printing service for your files. Never print at a drug store or big box store.

Can our organization use your images of LeBauer and Center City Parks in our publication/website/brochures??

The rights to all of my images of LeBauer and Center City Parks are shared with GDPI. Usage licenses for most of the images in our catalog are available for sale. Email me at for a link to our stock gallery, as well as a price list and licensing agreement to review.

How do we pay you?

Your deposit and balance can be paid via check, Venmo (@HappyLabs), or major credit card.

I booked a mini/headshot/event session, but want to use it for something else.

I know it doesn't seem like it would be a problem to book a headshot session to use for senior photos, or book one 15 minute mini for all of the grandkids, but please do not do this. Different session types have different costs and require different gear. No surprises, please. ;)

Do you sell proofs?

Yes. For private family sessions only, I'm not opposed to selling the proofs, as long as it's understood that proofs should never be posted to social media as an example of my work. Proofs are considered to be an unfinished product because they are not edited. Occasionally parents (and grandparents!) want to hold onto all of the images, no matter how imperfect, as a memento of their child's precious years. Proof galleries start at $300; prices vary based on the number of images in the gallery.
