How do I book a shoot with you?

You can book a session via email or phone. We will happily answer your questions before you book. In order to book a session we require you to sign our portrait contract, outlining terms, pricing and delivery as well as our rescheduling policy. To book a session we require a non-refundable retainer of $375. Your retainer secures your shoot date, and if for any reason we need to reschedule we will allow you to reschedule one time before a charge of $50 will be incurred for additional rescheduling. This is necessary to insure we are able to schedule for ourselves and other clients. To get started check out our booking page and contracts. There you can find the our session availability, the session retainer payment link, and the portrait contract. All need to be signed to book us. Thank you for your interest in Pixelaska Photography.

What do I expect after I book a session?

After you book we begin planning your shoot depending on your desired look or deadlines. We have a dynamic studio in downtown Fairbanks, Alaska. And we love to shoot on location as well, winter or summer.

What should I wear?

Stand in the power you are trying to convey. What you wear for a professional headshot should make you confident and speak to your corporate or brand personality. For deeper branding sessions we will plan a list of shots you can use for all your branding purposes, from you working, to you standing alone, to you being approachable and building trust with your clients or customers.

Practically: We prefer solid colors, and layers with contrasting textures. If you are shooting with a group, family, etc, coordinate your outfits and consider your placement in photos. Who will be standing next to whom in which shots? Feel free to contact us for advice. Definitely plan ahead and layout clothing to help you decide. For Professional Headshot Portraits, Maternity and High School Seniors, we recommend having several outfits on hand.

How long is a session?

A typical session is up to 60 minutes. Often we can go up to 90 minutes. For on location photography we shoot up to 2 hours. And depending on weather we could do something different entirely. Be sure to inquire at the time of booking.

Do you retouch images?

We touchup images to perfection to minimize distractions, optimize color, contrast, and lighting, and elevate all images to the modern level of expectation. We are also happy to accommodate your input if you prefer less retouching.

Do I get digital copies of my images?

You will receive a web-sized version of any images you purchase a la carte, or you may purchase higher resolution photos for your family archives from our digital a la carte menu. For commercial clients, you will receive the high-resolution digital file to use in your company publications and websites.

What rights do I have to my photos?

Your rights are outlined at the time of your shoot. The photographer holds the copyright to your images, as the creator of the work. You are permitted to share your images online via the social sized images we create for you (for quality purposes). We do not allow you to scan or alter your printed images in any way. Please recognize that the photographer has chosen to create your image in a particular way. These choices are protected under the digital copyright act.

What all types of sessions do you offer?

We offer beauty and stylized portraiture from maternity, birth, family and milestones, senior portraits, engagement, wedding, and corporate head shots. Thank you for your interest!
