Frequently asked questions

Once we work together, it will take me some time to send you all of your edited photos, as I edit and create your custom online album myself. I am more than happy to provide preview photos of our session (5-10 images) within 48-72 hours.

how long until i can see my photos?

If we decide to work together, I will send you a contract, which you are welcome to read and ask questions about. There will be no surprises, I promise. I will require a retainer/deposit for our session, which will be outlined in my contract.

do you have any restrictions?

I want to make sure that whatever you need, I am the perfect fit. To start, please fill out a form on my Contact page, and I will respond within 24-48 hours.
When I respond, I will probably ask a few additional questions (what is your budget? Are you looking for a videographer and/or second shooter?), and we will go from there. Once we connect over email, I’m always available to talk over the phone or through text.

what can i expect when booking a session?

Don't wait! If you have a date in mind, please reach out as soon as possible. You might be surprised how far in advance things are booked. Let's talk ASAP!


do you have engagement/wedding packages?

Yes! I offer custom engagement and wedding packages, including a free engagement session for any weddings booked that are 8+ hours. I also provide custom wedding prices if you want to work with me but feel you are looking for a more tailored package than what is offered on my site. Reach out, and let's talk!

I feel weird in front of the camera. help!

From one awkward person to another, I promise you that I will help you pose and feel beautiful. I pride myself on being able to make anyone feel comfortable during a session! Whether you need me to make stupid jokes, say encouraging things, or make ridiculous squeaks of joy (this will happen a LOT), I am here for you!

I want to include my dog/cat/bird in our session. is that okay?
