Q.01 - What sets you apart from other photographers?

I know how to pose and guide clients to make them feel relaxed while looking their very best. I use natural lighting as often as possible and make sure my sessions are intimate & fun!

Q.02 - What is the turnaround time for my photos?

The short answer is approximately 2-3 weeks! Following the day of your session you'll receive image proofs that will showcase the very best portraits from your session. You'll have one week to review the photos and choose the images that you love most. Once you have chosen your images, the retouching process will start, which tipically takes from 1 to 2 weeks. I will correct color, fix blemishes, edit distracting elements, and crop images to perfection.

Q.03 - Do I have to order prints through you?

I highly recommend ordering prints through my professional vendor, but it isn't required, all of our packages come with print release. The difference in quality is huge when it comes to ordering through a professional lab, so I always love to help with prints!

Q.04 - How do we reserve our session date?

A $100 deposit & signed contract is required in order to get your session on the calendar. The remainder of your balance is due on your session date.

Q.05 - Will you Photoshop my images to hide any unwanted spots, wrinkles, etc?

Minor retouching will be made to all of your images, but I believe our imperfections are what make us beautiful & unique, temporal features will go (pimples, dark spots, etc) and permanent ones will stay (wrinkles, warts, etc). No changes in body shape or major edits will be performed.

Q.06 - Can I purchase additional digital images after my session?

Absolutely! You can purchase additional images for retouching beyond what’s included in your Collection. Additional retouched images are available in packages of 5, 10, and 20.

Q.07 - What should I wear to the session?

I always tell clients to wear something comfortable that makes you feel like you! Neutral colors are always best! But be warned you may get a little dirty ;)
