FAQ'S 

WHERE CAN I SEE MORE WORK? 

I keep my instagram up to date with both personal and professional work. Follow me @melissafoxmedia.

what is the difference between in home and location? 

A location shoot requires additional planning, creative and travel. Locations downtown, on the lake, or in public or private spaces often require extra work to get right. That is why they are a little more. 

how do you accept payment? 

I will take cash, chase quick-pay or credit. All payments are due in full before your session. I use square to run credit or debit cards. I only release final files after payment has cleared. 

DO YOU TRAVEL OUTSIDE OF CHICAGO? 

Yes, I LOVE to travel. I do charge extra for anything outside city limits. Let's talk about where you are and how I can get to you. 

DO YOU DO FRAMED PRINTS? 

No, I don't. Framing is a beautiful art, one I am not practiced in. I can make recommendations of wonderful people to work with. 

CAN WE ADD MULTIPLE LOCATIONS TO A SHOOT? 

Yes! I like to keep the above pricing simple and am happy to add on more time and locations. Let's talk. 

DO YOU SHOOT PET PHOTOGRAPHY? 

OMG! YES!!! I love all things furry and am wonderful with them. You can check out my pet portrait sessions here: CANINE PORTRAITS

WHERE SHOULD WE SHOOT A BOUDOIR SESSION? 

Anywhere private with great natural light it gives a sexy softness to curves. 

DO YOU SHOOT PARTIES, EVENTS, NON-PROFITS, COMMERCIAL AND CORPORATE? 

Yes, I do. All commissions for parties, events, non-profits, commercial can be directed to www.figmediainc.com. Please reference that you found me here on this site and our team will make sure to include me in your initial meetings. 

DO YOU SHOOT WEDDINGS? 

Yes, I do. I shoot a select few per year and I can book up to one year in advance. Weddings are wonderfully complex. It is for this reason that I choose to shoot weddings with my teammates at fig weddings. They have been wonderful partners for me in the past 11 years. I do not take personal bookings or commissions for weddings outside of that. If you are interested in working with me, please check out my work at: https://figweddings.squarespace.com/melissa-fox. When you fill out the form, please reference that you are interested in working with me and found me through my website. The team will then help facilitate any questions you have and set up a meeting to sit with me and talk all things wedding! 

DO YOU SHOOT ON SPEC OR IN TRADE? 

Unfortunately no. If passion could pay the bills, I would be a rich woman. Both my gear, my education and hard earned on the job experience are what pay my bills. I will entertain proposals or stories for extreme circumstances: Usually involving veterans, terminal cancer patients and seniors with amazing stories.
