Frequently asked questions
Do you charge a travel fee?
I do, if I have to travel a long way to the location (i.e 30 minutes outside of Lunenburg). Contact me to discuss your requirements.
What should I wear for my portrait session?
I always recommend that you wear something in which you are comfortable. For family sessions it is preferable that your outfits complement one another but do not match. Avoid loud prints and designs. Sunglasses and tinted prescription glasses do not photograph well.
How long have you been a photographer and what is your training?
I have my degree in visual arts (combined studio and art history) from Western University (London ON) and studied photography during that time. I trained under a highly experienced wedding and portrait photographer for a year. I have been in business as a photographer since 2007.
Do I have to order prints from you?
No, you do not. All of my sessions and packages include a high resolution disc with unmarked, print ready photographs. I do offer prints if you require them.
Will my photographs be used in your portfolio and online?
They will, it is vital for any photographer to share and use recent work.
Can I share my photographs on social media sites such as Facebook?
Yes you can - I am delighted when people are excited and want to share their photographs! I do, however, request that you credit the images to me with my name and webpage (i.e Madeleine Kendall www.madeleinekendall.com). When you let people know who your photographer is - your photographer gets referals and more work.
