The Deets (FAQ’s)

 

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?

I am located in Brownsville, TX  “on the border, by the sea”.


WHAT’S YOUR STYLE OF PHOTOGRAPHY?

Meribella Photography’s style is a hybrid of both modern and fresh with an artistic flair. She is a natural light photographer but also uses studio lights when the occasion calls for it, such as for beauty, boudoir, and head shots. Meribella loves working with little ones, families, tweens, families, Boudoir for women, and specializes in high school senior photography.


MY EXPERIENCE

Meribella is a “self-taught photographer”, with 32 years of experience, and has been in business for 7 years now. She has attended numerous hands-on workshops hosted and taught be world renowned photographers: Jerry Ghionis (known as one of the top five best wedding photographers in the world), Sandy Puc (photographer, entrepreneur, educator, and philanthropist), The Boudoir Divas (boudoir photography), and Skye Hardwick (one of Meribella’s favorite child photographers).


HOW LONG ARE THE SESSIONS?

Typically sessions last about an hour, with the exception of Newborns, Weddings, and Commercial photography. Those require a little “extra attention”. We don’t want anyone to fizzle out on us, so one hour is usually sufficient time, and gives plenty of time for outfit changes as well.


YOUR INVESTMENT

Pricing starts at $85 per session, and prints start at $15 and up. There is no minimum order amount but on average, clients invest about $400 and up. Each session is different, but we try to keep pricing simple and easy for all types of sessions. Session fees for Newborns, Weddings, and Commercial photography will be slightly higher because of the time involved. Products and pricing are shown and discussed in detail during the Mini Consultation appointment, prior to your session.


WE ARE READY TO BOOK A SESSION, HOW DO I SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT?

You can either call or email us through the Contact Page. We will first schedule a 30 minute in-person Mini-Consultation to discuss Products, Pricing, What To Wear, Location, Set Session Date, and Collect Session fee in advance.


METHOD OF PAYMENT

Credit cardS, checks, ApplePay, and cash are accepted. Full balance is due at the time of your Order Session, on average about one week after your photo session. Payment plans are available… please inquire during the Mini Consultation.


BUT, I’VE NEVER MODELED

No worries, I will guide you throughout your session… and I may even give you a little homework to practice prior to your session. It’s all about having a fun and carefree experience!


WHAT DIGITAL FORMAT DO YOU SHOOT IN?

I shoot in RAW format. Basically this is like an unprocessed digital negative for photographers, which allows for better post processing and allowing for a higher quality print image.
