FAQ'S

How long have you been in the photography business?

I started my business right after my youngest son was born and he is 14. I scheduled our first family photography session when he was 3 months, a friend of mine had just started her own photography business. I was instantly hooked!  I bought my first camera the next day, signed up to attend a 4 days class with one of the best photographers in the business, and I was instantly all in! That's just the way I am! 

What type of session do you specialize in?

I love shooting high school seniors, families, children of all ages, & babies.

What is a KPP session like? How long does a typical session last?

A KPP family session is relaxed and fun, we will run around, dance, jump, snuggle and laugh. I will capture the realness and love of your family! A typical family session is around an hour. If we get all that we need in 30 minutes though, awesome! If it takes 1 hour and 30 minutes, that's awesome too! We play it by ear, relax, and make sure we get everything we need, there's no stress or pressure, even if you have an ornery toddler!   Patience is key & I have lots of it!

A KPP senior session will end up being one of the highlights of your senior year. Just be ready to have lots of fun and to feel beautiful inside and out while I capture the real you! I sometimes act a little crazy & every now and then I whip out my best dance moves or my favorite song...I guarantee you'll smile and laugh the whole time.​

What can we expect after the session?

You'll have your gallery link, fully edited and ready for download 5-14 days.  If I can get them done sooner, I will. 

How far in advance should I schedule my session?

It’s never too early to call and book your session. In March-June, we can typically get in you in fairly quickly. During the busy season of July-November, it’s best to book early to have the most options.  October is our most popular month of the year, so if you want an October session, call early.  Weekends also book up very quickly since we try to only schedule sessions two Sundays per month.

What days of the week do you shoot family & senior sessions?

I shoot Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and 2 weekend days a month. I try and shoot all sessions the last 2 hours prior to sunset for the dreamiest lighting of the day. Lighting is definitely key.

How does payment work?

Once we get a date on the calendar and determine the type of session you want, we will send you an invoice. Your balance can be paid at your session.

Do you offer payment plans?

Sure, we will work with you any way we can!  Just ask!

What if the weather is not cooperating on our session date?

We primarily shoot outdoors so the weather matters. We will let you know ahead of time if we think it's best to reschedule due to rain, lack of lighting, or high winds. These memories will last you a lifetime, so it's best to reschedule if the weather isn't cooperating. We build time into our calendar to reschedule sessions due to weather.

We are already on your calendar, we need help with figuring out what to wear.

Figuring out what to wear can be the most stressful part of planning for your session, but we are here to help. From beginning to end, we want to make this photo experience as stress-free as possible for all of our clients, which is why every single one of you will have access to an amazing and personalized styling site where you can begin styling your entire family or your high school senior from the comfort of your couch. No more running store to store and no more guessing! You will fill out the simple Style Questionnaire about your family, color scheme you are wanting and the vibe of clothes you would like to see. The quick results page will show you photo-approved clothing items for each family member and you can view them side-by-side once you have favorited your pieces. Feel free to play around with it until you have selected the perfect outfit combo! Click the email button to send yourself the selected items or shop for the clothes right away by clicking the shopping cart buttons. If you don't want to purchase anything new, this site will still be very helpful in guiding you. Their blog and Instagram is very helpful and their style tips are everything we would suggest as well.

Why should we schedule with KPP? What sets you apart?

One of my biggest passions in life is my photography. I am lucky to have a job that I love to do every single day & that I have so much fun doing. Don't get me wrong, it's hard work and sometimes the hours I put in seem endless, but most of the time it doesn't feel like work, that's how much I love it.

 

How about newborn sessions, how early can I book those?

We can schedule your newborn session anytime during your pregnancy, but we love to schedule those as soon as you know your due date. We can always change the day once we get closer to your delivery date, but we like to have it penciled in since they require a large block of time.

What is the best time of the year to schedule a family or kiddo session?

Go with the time of year that is best for your family and your schedules. Summer is great because everyone is tan and the kiddos are out of school, but fall is always a very popular option (and always our busiest time of year, so call early). Keep in mind that from March to the end of September, we shoot between 5:00-7:00pm to capture the dreamiest lighting of the day. In October & November, the shoot time is from 3:00-5:00pm.

What is the best time to schedule senior pictures?

There isn't really a best time, so go with a time that is best for you. Some like to schedule during the summer when their school and extra curricular activities aren't as hectic, and some like to schedule in the fall because they prefer fall clothing and colors. Then some seniors wait until the spring, it's not too late to do them in the spring! Keep in mind that from March to the end of September, we shoot around 5:00-7:00pm. In October & November, the shoot time is from 3:00-5:00pm, which typically requires you to miss the last hour or so of your school day.

What do I need to do to book a session?

It's best to contact us through the website, send Kendra a text (217-841-6924) or send an email directly to kendrapence@hotmail.com. Be sure to include your email and the best way to reach you and we will call or email you back as soon as possible.

What else do we need to know?

I promise, your session is going to be laid back, relaxed and fun. Even if you don't like getting your picture taken, I promise, we will have fun and it will be totally pain free! Even if your little one has a few melt downs, I promise it's OK, just remember it's common and we will still get amazing images.
