Is photography your full-time job?

No it is not!  I work during the week as a school counselor.

When are you available to shoot?

I am only available to schedule sessions Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Where will we shoot?  Do you have a studio?

I do not have a studio (I wish!).  I have my favorite outdoor spots I love shooting at, but I LOVE suggestions from clients if you have a particular place that is meaningful to you!  (Just keep in mind lighting and…will there be a bazillion people there??)  I also LOVE shooting in-homes!  (Just keep in mind..LIGHT!  I can usually find the light wherever I go but we want lots of natural light in homes.  Natural light = light in your home when the lights are off!)  Please do not hesitate to bring up location or questions when scheduling your session.

How long do sessions typically last?

Sessions usually last 45 -60 minutes.  Children (and husbands!) usually don’t want to be photographed for too long and I let their behavior be a guide for when the shoot should conclude! 

What if my child misbehaves?

I want to capture you and your child’s personalities and the connections that you share together.  Therefore, sessions are about exploring and playing, not about sitting pretty for the camera and saying ‘cheese.’  We won’t force your child to do anything they don’t want to do, but will make things fun and energetic so that your child forgets the real reason they are there!

Do you print photos?

No, but I highly recommend using professional printing studios such as millerslab.com, mpix.com, nationsphotolab.com, or artifactuprising.com.

Can you do this thing I saw on Pinterest/can I bring props?

No and no.  My photography is simple and the only things I want to capture are the connections between you and your loved ones.  Don’t get me wrong I love Pinterest, however I am more focused on capturing the beauty that is in front of me during the shoot and not thinking about recreating another artist’s work.

How long will it take to get my pictures back?

1-2 weeks.

How will I get my photos?

Photos are delivered via online gallery.

Do you offer mini sessions?

At this point I am not offering minis. 

Why do you only shoot early morning or late evening?

Simply put; lighting.  Photos will turn out dreamy and wonderful because of the low light in the sky at these times.
