PRICING & INVESTMENT
please send me a quick email via my contact page with a brief message about what i can do for you. i will respond as quickly as i can and look forward to this new opportunity for us both!
are all of the recipes you make and offer gluten-free?
yes. my family and i follow a gluten-free diet for health reasons, and i’m not able to create recipes if i can’t taste them!
however, many popular recipes and favorite foods are naturally gluten-free. plus, the general public is now more aware of and interested in gluten-free options.
what is the turnaround time for recipes once i’ve contracted with you?
if you select a recipe from the list above, the turnaround time is typically less than two weeks. if you prefer a custom recipe, or need to ask for special considerations, please contact me and i can give you an updated timeline!
how are the files delivered?
i will send the recipe and all photos in a shared folder via email, Dropbox, or Google Drive, unless you prefer that i deliver them in a different way.
will anyone else get to use the recipe that i purchase?
absolutely not! once a recipe is reserved it is unavailable to anyone else, including me. your contract gives you exclusive ownership and rights to the work i create. you are not expected to give me either recipe or photography credit in your post.
what if i want more than two photos?
i include a minimum of two photos with each recipe, but often include up to four or five. if you want more images, such as steps of the recipe in more detail or a specific type of styling, we can consider adding those for a small additional fee.
can i make any special requests before you create the recipe?
yes! if you select a recipe from the list above, please understand some of it may already be in production or even completed. but i’m always happy to take requests so the finished product is a perfect fit.
do you also offer video?
i do offer stop-motion video services, and am happy to discuss that option with you! i do not offer videos of the recipe being made in my kitchen, but can refer you to a number of talented, trusted colleagues who do!
can you teach me to take photos like you?
yes i can! here is a little more information about those services.
can you do a “style audit” to help me determine what photography and design style fits my site best?
absolutely!! i’d love to help direct you in toward a style that will be successful and consistent throughout your site. please contact me for more info!
