How do I book a session? 
If you have perused my website and love what you see, feel free to go ahead and complete this questionnaire to start the process. After you submit your questionnaire, I'll email you the invoice for the session you want along with the first available date according to the scheduling information you gave me. Once your session fee invoice is paid, your session date is reserved. Then, we can move on to the fun stuff... discussing location options for the session, wardrobe, your hopes & ideas.

When should I book my session? 
Please try to book your session at least 1 month in advance. My busy season is June through November. If you would like a session during that time, please contact me as soon as possible. Sessions are on a first come, first serve basis. Sadly, I am not able to book all session requests because my sessions sell out.

Do you travel outside of Connecticut? 
Yes. Additional travel rates apply. Please contact mefor details. 

Do you sell the digital images? 
I do sell digital images from your gallery for personal printing. This is priced separate from the session fee. All prints, images, and other products are sold separately after you have had time to preview your gallery online. Many new photographers simply sell the digital images but what I love to offer are the heirloom quality products such as large prints, canvases and luxury albums. I'd definitely say that most of my clients are primarily interested in heirloom artwork.

I know your specialty is on-location outdoor photography, what do you do if the weather forecast looks bad?
We will be in contact two days before your session to talk about any last minute details and the weather. I look at the hourly forecast on accuweather.com to see what our chances are of going ahead with the session. If the weather is questionable, I will contact you to reschedule at your earliest convenience or possibly just arrange our session for the same day but for a block of time that looks clear. I tend to think positive and move ahead with sessions. I've learned in my years of scheduling experience to make the right call and work with all types of natural lighting.


What is the goal of the session, what will I get as a result?
The goal is to spend the session time capturing you at your very best so that you have stunning images in your gallery, each a work of art. Not only for one picture to frame and submit to the yearbook, but a variety of images that represent your personality for an album or wall gallery as a keepsake of this thrilling time of life. This means we have spent time selecting the location that compliments your personality, you have selected clothing and accessories that you will love to look back on and remember as your ideal style one day. I will take lots of pictures of you and with my keen eye pick out the very best ones for you to see. It may feel like you are in a magazine photo shoot because it’s not your typical “sit here turn your head just so” school portrait. We’ll do a variety of poses, head shots, you sitting, laying down, standing or twirling. We’ll meet somewhere really picturesque, possibly a field, park, beach or a more urban area with walls and doors as a cool textured background. We’ll chat and laugh and you’ll feel silly pretending to be a model but that is okay because I am used to people feeling silly around me, it’s all in a day’s fun.


Do you have samples of your cards, albums, and collages?
Sure do! I can’t wait to show you the beautiful albums and collages I have available. I will bring them to the session so that you can take a hands on look at how luxurious they are.  If you haven't emailed me yet about scheduling a session, please email me at denise@denisegammellphotography.com

What should I wear?
Pinterest {CLICK HERE to see Senior Girl Ideas} is a wonderful source of finding fashionable outfit ideas and accessories. You can always bring several outfits to your session and I will help you pick out what will photograph well. Definitely put together your outfits well in advance and have a friend photograph you so you can see how it looks all pulled together. Make sure you have a few optional accessories should we need an extra something. Once your session is booked, I will send you my "What to Wear" guide. You can text me pictures of what you have in mind and I can share some tips.
