Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

If this is your first time taking or considering professional photos
you probably have a few questions. Let us help you feel confident
and comfortable. Please read these commonly asked questions to
help settle your nerves and prepare you to take pictures worth sharing.

Do I need to bring anything?

Yes. We always suggest you bring a few changes of clothes—relaxed and formal—that will showcase you in the best light. As always, darker clothes will make you look thinner on camera. For women, we suggest a bit heavier makeup than your daily wear to help better pronounce your unique features on film.


Will you meet me at a location?

Absolutely.  We are more than happy to meet you anywhere you like. But just in case you do not have a specific location in mind, we can offer you the opportunity to use our beautifully landscaped, half-acre garden studio, designed specifically for outdoor photo shoots. Barfield Studios offers you both the comforts of home and the lush landscapes you need to make your photos beautiful.


I don’t think I am very photogenic. Will you make me look good?

Yes. The key to taking a great photo is being relaxed, natural and poised. Throughout the shoot we will work with you to make sure you are comfortable and relaxed. This will involve candid conversations, lots of jokes and even more fun. We will also work our digital magic to make your photos perfect in every way. At Barfield Studios, we believe if you didn’t enjoy the experience than we didn’t do our jobs. In fact, we promise a money-back guarantee if you are dissatisfied with your photos in any way.


What should I expect?

Expect to have fun and enjoy the experience. This is stress-free work environment. We are here to help you relax, get comfortable and take great photos. We will be continually moving around and helping you stay calm throughout the entire process. We will let you know when it is time to change poses, places or clothes to provide you with a variety of photos to choose from.  For the more than 35 years, we have worked with businesses, corporations, politicians, newlyweds and families to create moments that matter, and we can do the same for you.
