When should I contact you to book a session?
For family sessions, please contact me at least a month in advance. This will give us time to plan and ensure your date on the calendar! I take on a limited number of clients each month to ensure amazing quality and service.
For maternity and newborn sessions, please contact me during your second trimester. I photograph maternity clients between 32 and 38 weeks. I love to see those babies between 8 and 21 days old. I book you for your due date, then you shoot me an email or text within 24 hours of your sweet baby's birth so we can confirm the exact date and time. If your baby is a premie, then we can wait several weeks.
Why are you more expensive than other photographers?
Photographers these days are a dime a dozen. With the ability to buy DSLR cameras freely, for a small amount of money... EVERYONE thinks they can call themselves a photographer.
I run a legit business. Meaning... I pay 25-35% in taxes. I have a studio where I have many expenses, so that I can offer my clients the very best. There is A LOT that goes into running a successful business. I am constantly investing in my education, new and unique props, and stunning heirloom pieces so you know you are getting a one of a kind session. I even create or purchase special backdrops for each client.
I refuse to just give you crummy images on a disc and never see you again. I take pride in conducting it ALL in-person. That way there is no confusion about anything when you work with me. My clients are all well informed prior to the booking process. There are no guessing games when it comes to prices.
Most photographers are not running their business this way. That's fine! That's how I stand out from the sea of photographers in this area. My clients LOVE being well informed at the consult, meeting me, seeing my studio, all before they book! Running my business this way allows me to have more time to dedicate to EACH of my clients. I love watching their emotions as they see their images printed for the first time. They are truly works of art.
While I do offer great wall art options and albums for you, my portrait sessions all come with digital image files and a print release.
Don't wait on these moments. These are times you cannot get back, but you can relive them through the power of photographs. Shouldn't they be great?
What should I bring to a session?
Just yourself! For family sessions, I have quilts, blankets, and flower crowns for that special added touch. My studio has plenty of newborn wraps, headbands, and other props. I even have a selection of maternity gowns, tulle skirts, and lacey frocks for client use. During our planning session, we'll chat about what colors, textures, and accessories you would like to utilize.
Can I make payments?
Sure! Sometimes clients just want it all! I try my best to work with all budgets because I believe everyone should have their memories captured and turned into beautiful art.
How long are your sessions?
All sessions are approximately one hour. If you've planned a family outdoor session, even if you don't think your kiddos can hold their attention that long, trust me! Our sessions are so much fun and the time will fly by!
During the newborn session, can we capture family and sibling images?
Of course! We complete those photos first so you can sit back and relax for the remainder of the session. All at no extra cost!
When will I see the images?
After your session, I will cull, lightly edit, and create a gallery within two weeks. You will be able to choose your favorite images that I will further edit and print.
What's your most popular product?
Clients adore my fine art wall prints. Your image is printed on a material that mimics watercolor paper with incredible richness and detail. The piece of art is then glazed and framed. When it is completed your captured memory is truly a breathtaking work of art!
