How do you photograph sessions?
I enjoy getting to know you before your session and provide any assistance to help best prepare you. I will ask about any particular location of interest to you, I will guide you through your poses and help you relax and enjoy your session as much as possible.
As an expectant mom I will ensure you are as comfortable as possible to capture the full essence of your glow.
As a family I will ask you to playfully engage with each other, laugh, run around and be your best selves.
As a couple I will ask how did you meet, I will ask you to whisper things to each other and fully embrace the moments you are sharing and allow me to capture and freeze those moments for you.
As a solo session I will do my best to put you at ease and best capture your essence.
Where are you based and do you travel?
I will be relocating to Belleville, Illinois to Scott Air Force Base as of August 2021. I will begin accepting sessions in the late fall and I will be open to travel within the immediate area once I get settled and familiar with the area.
When should I book my engagement session?
As soon as you become engaged and begin planning your wedding you should begin looking to book your session. Photographers become booked quickly especially during what is considered "Wedding Season" during the months of June-September.
When should I book my maternity session?
If you are an expectant mom I prefer to shoot at around 36 weeks of pregnancy. During this period most women have full bellies but also still comfortable enough to move around.
When should I book my newborn session?
If you are interested in a newborn session, I recommend booking within your first month home. This will allow you and your baby to adjust to your new normal. For these sessions I work very slowly to ensure everyone is comfortable and we are capturing those sweet precious moments.
When will we get our photos?
Your will receive an online gallery link with all your photos within 2-3 weeks from session.
Can I get all of the original files?
No. Only final edits will be provided. Each image is edited by me to give it my personalized style. I provide light retouching to enhance all images. I do not provide any originals or RAW files.
Your first step is to fill out the contact form. This allows me to send you booking and pricing details.
2. Review Details
Upon inquiring, I will send you details that explain the different session packages, pricing, and what working with me includes.
3. Secure Date
You will then be given steps to securing your session date. An online agreement will be signed and retainer paid.
4. Session Planning
I will send you a welcome package with a start to finish planning guide. I will guide you and provide all you need.
