Frequently Asked Questions
What are your rates?
I charge a $750 session fee. My price per image starts at $400 and my collections start at $1800. My clients usually spend between $1800 and $2500 on average.
What days do you shoot?
My photo shoots are scheduled on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Time slots are 9am -1pm and 2pm - 6pm. If you need any other days, a premium charge of $250 is added. This can be applied to your image purchase credit.
How long does the photo shoot process take?
Depending on scheduling, the entire process can take between 4-8 weeks from booking to delivery. I recommend booking at least 2 months ahead of the time you are wanting your photos in hand.
Is hair and make up optional?
Yes it is! However, it makes the entire photo shoot easier when my stylist is on set. Not only is she there to pamper you with a fabulous makeover… she can also assist with makeup touch ups and changes and make sure wardrobe is adjusted while posing. This makes the retouching process much easier because she understands how makeup for photo shoots should look. If you prefer to go with your natural look and not wear any makeup at all, I love a good natural and raw photo shoot as well!
Is there an option to keep my photos private?
Definitely! I only share photos and behind the scenes of clients who have given me written permission.
Do you offer digitals?
Digitals are the same price as prints. Every image you purchase comes with a digital and print.
What should I wear?
I help you figure that out when we talk at your design consultation. We will go over options based on how you want to be photographed and I will hold your hand through the entire process. If you need a bit more help, I also offer assistance with picking out clothes from your closet as well as helping you shop at local stores. We can even throw in a “Try-on Session” before your photo shoot to make sure everything looks amazing! An added bonus to try on sessions… you can leave your outfits with me so they will be steamed and ready for your photo shoot. You won’t have to worry about forgetting anything the day of! All of these options are included in your session fee.
Will I look like ME?
Of course! Most of the work is done WITHOUT retouching through posing and great styling. When I retouch your images, I am doing so with a gentle touch. I believe everyone who comes into my studio is already gorgeous! I work to lighten harsh shadows, blemishes, wrinkles and any problem areas we spoke about in your design session.
Do you photograph men?
I sure do! Guys are always welcome in my studio!
Do you do weddings/events?
I specialize as a portrait photographer so I do not offer wedding or event photography. I offer special bridal portraits that can be taken before or after your wedding date if you would love a “vanity fair”, fashion or “glam the dress” approach to your photos. You can check out examples of those here. I also have a list of preferred event photographers I can refer you to who are awesome at what they do!
Do you offer fashion shoots?
YES! I love fashion and focusing on how outfits move and fit on beautiful models. Fashion shoot rates are based on specific needs for the project with pricing starting at $3000. You can find examples of my work here.
Do you offer mini sessions?
