At least 2-4 weeks in advance. I limit the number of sessions I take on per month. For the best availability, reach out and book your session as early as possible.
For individual portraits, couples portraits, family portraits , and intimate portraits packages start at only $500.
There is a non-refundable Retainer Fee for your portrait experience that is due at the time of Booking in order to secure your session date & time. The retainer fee is 50% of the package you select. This includes your Pre-Consultation, 1-Hour Portrait Session (with up to 2-3 outfits/looks), your View & Order Appointment, and everything that is described in the package you purchase. During your View & Order Appointment, you can also purchase additional prints & products from the A La Carte menu or upgrade your package.
On average, Clients will spend $750 for their portrait experience, including prints & product.
I typically schedule my portrait sessions on Saturdays at 1PM. I sometimes take special requests for Sundays at 1PM if my schedule allows it.
No, I also offer on location portrait sessions. There are plenty of great outdoor locations to fit your vision - from desert scenery at Gates Pass, to woodsy vibes on Mt. Lemmon, to city vibes downtown. This is something we can talk about in detail during your planning session.
You can wear up to 3 outfits/looks during your portrait session. You can choose to have only 1 outfit/look if that's all you intend to wear, but I always suggest 2-3 outfits to give you more variety and allow you to express your true self.
Absolutely, but I always suggest adding Hair & Makeup Artistry for only $250. I work with some incredibly talented hair & makeup artists that will make you look and feel like a celebrity. They know what kind of makeup looks best on camera, and know how to match all skin tones flawlessly. They only use top products to ensure your skin and hair are taken care of.
During your Pre-Consultation, no less than a week prior to your portrait session, we will go over details of what you will need for the day of your session. I always recommend Clients have their outfits and anything else they may need ready in advance the day before their session.
If you purchased the optional Hair & Makeup Artistry, I suggest washing your hair the day prior (so that it is dry day of). For men, if you have to shave, I also suggest shaving the day prior, to reduce any possible redness in the skin. Do NOT freak out if your skin breaks out, Makeup will cover that up nicely, and anything that may show is easily fixed in post-production.
Portrait sessions are scheduled for 1 hour. If you feel you will need more time to capture your portraits, additional time is $100 per hour.
YES! I love photographing any and all pets. I consider them an extension of the family. Please mention your pets during your pre-consultation and we will make it happen!
We can absolutely take your portraits in multiple locations, as long as the travel time between locations is reasonable. Portrait session are scheduled for one hour, but I recommend purchasing additional time for your session to ensure we have enough time to safely capture your portraits at the locations you desire without rushing the process.
After your portrait session, turnaround time is typically 1-2 weeks for your view & order appointment. Depending on the prints or product you order, it will take anywhere from 2-4 weeks for delivery. I typically receive the order and will either setup a date & time to meet in the studio, or I can hand deliver it to your home.
