How do I book you?

What should I bring for pics?
Bring whatever you want to incorporate! The more personalized your shoot is the better, because then it will be even more meaningful to you when you look back on it.

How do we pick a location? Or do you pick?
I will give you a list of locations to choose from, depending on the style you're going for. However, if you have a particular place in mind or know someone with private property that would be will to let us use it, feel free to tell me!

How many Outfits do I bring?
Family sessions allow for one outfit, but we can always discuss incorporating more if desired.
Senior sessions allow for up to three outfits and Couples sessions allow for two.

What should I/We wear?
Make sure that whatever you wear you love and are comfortable in it. Be sure to coordinate with everyone in your shoot and avoid flashy, graphic or bold patterned clothes. I usually recommend my clients dress up a bit and avoid every day clothes. For more help you can read through this article here.

Do you do skin retouching?
I do! But only minimally. It is my goal to make you look your best but still like you. Acne removal, softening dark under eye circles and minor teeth whitening is included, but I make sure to leave any permanent features like scars/moles/freckles that make you you.

I'm nervous / hate getting my photo taken! Any advice?
Don't stress! It's my job and goal to make you feel comfortable and relaxed in front of my camera. The better I get to know you the easier will be to help you enjoy the process! We can discuss any concerns or questions you may have.

Can I bring my dog?
Heck yes! Dogs are just as much family as the next member. Just remember to bring a leash and make sure our location is pet friendly.

Can I bring my relative/friend?
Sure! Often times it's easier to relax with a familiar face cheering you on. I only ask that you remind them that I need to be the one directing.

Can my friend take pictures behind you?
I'm all about supporting fellow photographers, but I do ask that if someone would like to learn more via one-on-one experience that they would contact me regarding mentoring. I would love to answer any questions they may have!

How many images do I get?
Please see our investment page to see what each package includes. Generally you are guaranteed 10-20 images depending on the type of session.

How long does it take to get the images?
You will receive all edited images in 1-2 weeks from the date of your session.

How do I get the images?
Once completed you will be emailed a link to an online gallery, allowing you to print and download.

Can I print them myself?
Yes! Included with your session is a print release, but if you ever need help or want to order through me please don't hesitate to ask! I do recommend if you print the images on your own to use a reputable lab like Mpix.

What equipment/editing software do you use?
I shoot with a Canon 6D and 85mm lens. I use both lightroom and photoshop for editing!
