Frequently asked questions
Q. Can I bring my dog to the session?
A. 1000000% yes. In fact, I encourage it.
Q. How do I receive my photos?
A. You will receive an email with a link to a high quality digital download. The email also includes a link to a print release, which some places require you to show when getting photos printed.
Q. Are you LGBT+ friendly?
A. Yes, yes, yes! Love is love is love. Whether it be a wedding or family session, everyone is deserving of their story being told.
Q. Do you require a deposit?
A. For a senior or general session, I do not require a deposit. For weddings, I require 25% of the total package price as a retainer for your date. That payment goes towards your total payment which is due on or before the date of your wedding. (If your wedding is $1000, $250 is required upon signing your contract, then you have $750 remaining to pay).
Q. What do I wear?
A. First thing's first: don't wear something you're not comfortable in. Wear something that you feel is flattering for you and reflects your personality. For couples/families: don't match exactly, but coordinate colors and patterns. Check out Pinterest for ideas! Seniors - I've specifically made this board for outfit ideas!
Q. Can you photoshop XYZ?
A. Uhh, maybe. Here's the thing: if it's something that's objectively temporary (such as acne, scrapes, bruises, etc), then yes of course. I will not do any extreme retouching or change the shape of your body. Photos are a snapshot of a moment in time, and my personal goal is to capture one's personality and true self in that moment to be looked back on as a memory for years to come.
Q. Do you photograph newborns?
A. Short answer: no. I do not do traditional newborn photography. I am the first to admit I have 0 experience with babies and your baby's comfort and safety is the #1 priority. However, I will do a lifestyle session with newborns! A newborn lifestyle session would be me coming into your home (or renting out an Airbnb) and documenting the "daily life" with your baby (in a beautiful and artistic way!) But TL;DR, no I do not do posed newborn photography.
