How far in advance should I book my session?
At least 2 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.
When do you schedule your sessions?
Session availability is from Friday through Monday between 12pm and 6pm. Check my scheduling calendar when booking for the next available opening.
How many outfits can I wear?
Depending on the package you select, you can wear between 1-3 outfits/looks during your portrait session. You can choose to have only 1 outfit/look if that's all you intend to wear. I always suggest 2-3 outfits to give you more variety and allow you to express your true self.
How should I prepare prior to my portrait session?
During your Planning Session, 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 when making the finishing touches to your photos.
Can I bring my pet?
YES! I love photographing any and all pets. I consider them an extension of the family. Please mention your pets during your consultation and we will make it happen!
How long does it take to receive my portrait print & product order?
I will send you a proof gallery to select your final photos. Delivery time is typically 1-2 weeks after you make your selections.
How much does it cost?
My portraits packages start at only $250. (Go to the Investment page for more details).
50% of the package total is required when booking your session in order to secure your date & time.
Do you only do sessions in your studio?
No, I also offer on location sessions based on your needs. There are plenty of great outdoor locations to fit your vision - from nature to city vibes downtown. I can also come to your place of business or home if you prefer. This is something we can talk about in detail during your planning session.
Can I do my own hair & makeup?
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 quality products to ensure your skin and hair are taken care of.
How long is my session?
Depending on the package you purchase, sessions are between 30 minutes to 90 minutes.
If you feel you will need more time to capture your portraits, additional time is $100 per hour.
Can we take our portraits in multiple locations?
We can absolutely take your portraits in multiple locations, as long as the travel time between locations is reasonable.
Depending on the length of the portrait package you select, 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.
Do you deliver any RAW photos?
There are a few reasons why I don't deliver RAW photos. RAW photos are the equivalent to film negatives, and are un-edited, un-retouched photos. As part of the art that I craft, I edit and retouch your finished and deliverable photos to give them that magical touch that is my signature look.
