Do you offer both indoor and outdoor photography sessions?

I mostly work outdoor sessions and prefer natural light, but I occasionally have indoor sessions. If you prefer studio sessions, it will be $160 additional fee for rental studios in SE Portland. Please consult with me for more information.

Can we choose the location for our photo shoot?

Absolutely! We believe that the location plays a significant role in capturing unique and personalized photographs. Whether it's at your home, a scenic outdoor location, or a venue of your choice, we're open to capturing your portraits in a place that holds meaning to you. Within 10 miles from 97007, travel fee is included in the session package, but additional travel fee may be charged if it's more than 10 miles - such as Lake Oswego, Hillsboro, S/SE/N/NE Portland or far. Travel fee is calculated based on IRS rate, $0.67 per mile (2024). If you have no idea which location you would like to have a photo session, please let me know. I have a location guide for you!

How many photos will I receive from the session?

Most of the package I have is starting with 10 high resolution images for download. Please contact me for more information.

How do I book a photography session with you?

Booking a photography session is easy. Simply reach out to me through our website or email, and let us know the type of session you're interested in. We'll guide you through the process, discuss your requirements, and find a convenient date and time for your session.

What happens if the weather is unfavorable on the day of an outdoor shoot?

If the weather doesn't cooperate on the day of an outdoor shoot, we can discuss alternatives such as rescheduling the session or finding an indoor location. We want to ensure the best possible outcome for your photos, and we're flexible in adapting to unforeseen circumstances.

How long does a typical photo session last?

The duration of a photo session varies depending on the type and scope of the project. It depends on what kind of session and how many people are in. Typically about 45min to an hour and half. Some of the sessions may take longer, such as the Newborn session. We strive to provide ample time to capture all the important moments and ensure you feel relaxed and comfortable throughout the session.

How long does it take to receive the final edited photos?

We understand the anticipation of seeing your final photos. If it's not during busy seasons such as fall, it may take 2 weeks or less after the session but during busy seasons, it may take 3-4 weeks depending on the volume of images and the complexity of editing required. We prioritize quality and attention to detail to deliver exceptional images that exceed your expectations.

What is your editing process like?

After the session, I narrow down to around 70 images and edit color and light to put on your gallery. This process might take 1-2 weeks. From your gallery, please select 10 or more photos you would like to download and let me know by the photo number. As soon as you let me know your selection, I start retouching (detail edit) on your photo and let you download, which will take about 1 week. If you are in a hurry, please let me know.

What is the payment options?

I accept cash, check (please write check to "Kumasaka Photography"), Zelle (kumasaka.photography@gmail.com), or Venmo (@KumasakaPhotography please add 3% for the transaction fee)

What is your cancelation policy?

25% cancellation fee will be charged if you cancel within 24 hours prior to photo shooting for a reason other than bad weather or a sickness.
