“I want professional pictures, but I don’t want them shared online and shown to people I don’t know.” OR “I want to protect my child and I don’t post many pictures of them online, do you have to share if I book a session with you?” ALSO “Why don’t you post all of your sessions on your Facebook page”? I get asked this question a lot. Privacy. It is something that many people want to have or don’t have thanks to social media. In this day and age, we are all a little paranoid of the wrong people finding images of our children and using them for awful purposes. I have many clients that simply don’t want them shared to protect their privacy or they only want to share them on their personal pages since they know what their privacy settings are. As much as I love to share the images I create and try to use them to promote myself, I have an obligation to my clients. I will discuss this with you ahead of time and will NOT post any pictures to social media if you do not want them posted. The exception is if you sign up as a model for a promotion I am working on in exchange for free / discounted images. This will ALWAYS be covered with you ahead of time though.
If your pictures are shared on my social media pages, I will not put the child’s name or share any personal information. I may use a first initial or keep it generic. You may share and or comment any information you want. I just want to make sure all my clients know that I won’t give out any personal information.
