HOW IT WORKS

LET'S TALK!!

DESIGN THE BEST EXPERIENCE EVER

CELEBRATE YOUR LOVE TO THE FULLEST

1.

2.

You love my work & how I value your unique energy. Fill out the contact form and we'll plan a 15 minute call to talk through what style of portraits you are looking to create! This is where we book your session fee and lock in your shoot date.

 Together we’ll dive deeper into all the details of your photo session and your unique story. I'll send over a personalized session guide and questionnaire to help guide our conversations. We'll tweak location, styles, and feelings to best showcase your vision.

We'll spend your relaxed & meaningful session flowing with the people around you. I'll be there with a curated playlist and  gentle movement prompts to capture what makes life weird and wonderful. 

RELIVE THE MOMENTS

4.

Up to 48 hours after the session (because I want to see them too!!) you'll receive a link to your private online viewing gallery with two "first couple" photos. We'll have previously planned a zoom/coffee date within 2 weeks of your session to sit down and order only the photos you love the most.

QUESTIONS? I HAVE ANSWERS!

QUESTIONS?
I HAVE ANSWERS!

What's included in the overall cost? 

You work hard for your income and I respect wanting to know where your money is being spent. I do not take you spending that on our time together (me!) lightly and am deeply humbled you're considering me to be your photographer. If you have any questions, please know I’m always open to answer as best I can! *payment plans are available*

CLIENT PROCESS:
I take on less clients so I’m able to dedicate more time creating a personalized experience for each session. You might be surprised to know that only a small portion of the process is our actual time together at the shoot! The average time spent on a client from start to finish(ish because once we connect, we’re most likely going to be in each other's lives for a bit!!) is around 8-10 hours per client

    All sessions include:
  • Initial consultation call hearing about your vision 
  • Creating a personalized session guide for you.
  • Picking out outfits together to best represent your unique style (zoom)
  • Setting Intentions Coffee/Zoom Meeting 
  • Scouting locations, sometimes multiple times to ensure the setting and lighting is best. 
  • Getting any props that would help ensure your shoot is a success. (Ex: Flowers, bubbles, cloth)
  • Delivering 2- 3 ”first few” images within 48 hours.
  • Culling your session (going through the images and picking the very best ones that meet my highest standards, I take roughly 600+ during a typical shoot) 
  • Editing selected photos (see facts about editing for more on that). 
  • Personalized image delivery experience. 
  • Being in constant communication with you via text or email to ensure you are the most informed and comfortable you can be before the shoot. 

PHOTOGRAPHY SPECIFIC EXPENSES:
  • Professional Development to ensure my photography techniques (shooting and editing) are the strongest and most up to date for you 
  • Highest Quality: Professional Website, Secure & High Resolution Photo Delivery Service Platform, Editing Software, Camera Body & Lenses, Memory Cards, Cleaning Tools

SMALL BUSINESS EXPENSES: 
  • As a licensed small business and dual citizen, 30-40% of each session’s payment goes straight to the IRS for taxes 

How far in advanced should we book you?

Due to my limited availability, ideal clients book at least 3-4 months out. While exceptions can occur for short notice shoots, having the time to be intentional and get to know each other leads to a better photoshoot all around. The full experience takes 2 months. 

What do you edit?

I edit for true to life light, color, background distractions, and imperfections that won’t be on your body in two weeks (ex: pimple, small scratch). I’m here to capture all your incredible beauty as you are right now.  Large edits (sunburns, tattoo removals) can be done at an additional cost since it will take extra time to make them meet the same standard of quality.  As a documentary photographer, my work is heavily influenced by real life, so while I'll cover that little pimple that just had to show up on your shoot day, I do not alter permanent features nor do I give an “airbrush finish” to skin. I keep my skin textured and true-to-life. YA ALREADY GORGEOUS.

Do you post every session to social media?

🥰 Unless otherwise asked not to, yes! I love sharing the goodness of each session for future (and past) clients to see and share in the love. If that’s not you, all good- simply let me know what you’re comfortable with. 

How soon will I receive my photo gallery?

Before we shoot, we'll schedule a date within two weeks of your session to view your final photos together, so you'll know exactly when to expect them!! You'll get a little previews no later than 48 hours after your session (because I want to see them too!!!)

Do you offer wall art & albums?

Absolutely! I believe that wall art & albums are beautiful family heirlooms you will enjoy, share, and pass down through generations. They create a meaningful connection to your family that becomes more cherished with each passing year. I love when clients order additional prints of the art we make together! Not only does it support my business when you order prints through me, I've spent a lot of time creating personalized relationships with top quality print shops in the area and can only assure print quality through them (getting it online or from a supermarket may result in colors being slightly off or of less long lasting quality).  A print release is included with your session fee, which means you can print and share however you want. I'm more than happy to walk you through the different options! 

Do I get to pick out my images? What if I want more than the package includes?

I will upload the best images to your gallery, usually between 30-50 photos and you will be able to choose which photos to download/add to your album/turn into wall art. You will also have the option to purchase more images individually or upgrade to the full gallery!

I will upload the best images to your gallery, usually between 30-50 photos and you will be able to choose which photos to download/add to your album/turn into wall art. You will also have the option to purchase more images individually or upgrade to the full gallery!
