Frequently Asked Questions
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR SHOOTING STYLE?
I love to capture raw emotion and in-between moments, so it's very rare that I ever overly pose my clients. My approach will typically involve a lot of motion, a lot of snuggling, and a lot of you just being...you. It's basically us just hanging out, only I have a camera and get realllyyyyy in your space. My editing style is difficult to describe, but the closest I can get is "warm and moody." Really, the best way to see what I mean is to check out my portfolio or take a peek at my instagram.
YOU'LL BE ABLE TO EDIT THAT OUT, RIGHT?
Now that we're on the subject of editing, please know that I will never, ever edit a photo in a way that takes away from you as a unique, authentic human being. Yes, I will take care of some blemishes, acne, coloration, maybe a stray hair or two. However, I do not believe in altering the appearance of an individual beyond those smaller changes. There is no one in the world who is just like you, WHY would we try to change that?!
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN MY SESSION INVESTMENT?
ALL of my sessions will include the session fee, styling assistance, and a personalized online gallery with downloadable high resolution digital images.
WHAT KIND OF SESSIONS DO YOU OFFER?
I specialize in portrait and elopement photography for adventurous, free-spirited couples. I also offer tasteful Boudoir sessions, Bridal portraits, branding/media content packages, maternity sessions, senior portraits, and lifestyle sessions. I do not offer posed newborn or large family packages (or families with greater than 3-4 individuals).
DO YOU SELL PRINTS?
Why yes, as a matter of fact I do! After you receive your gallery, I will ask you to send me a list of images that you wish to print. I will then send you an ordering gallery where you will be able to directly choose your print sizes and customize from a variety of products. If you are investing so much into preserving memories, I think choosing a solid printing company is a MUST. You are welcome to print from a company of your choosing, however, there is always something to be said about quality. I adore the printing lab that I partner with and could not recommend a better option for my clients. Plus, the pricing is really not all that different! Contact me today for a list of my most popular print prices to see.
DO YOU HELP WITH STYLING YOUR CLIENTS?
Yes! There is actually so much theory that goes into how your wardrobe choices affect the final outcome of your images, and I love sharing that information with my clients. Once you have booked with me, you will be given access to my personal styling guide that will help guide you in the selection of your wardrobe for your shoot. And of course, I'm always available to chat and bounce ideas off of!
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS?
My current turn-around time for galleries is 4-6 weeks. However, if there is a rush, please just let me know and I can definitely try to accommodate for that!
SOUNDS GREAT! HOW DO I BOOK MY SESSION?
I'm so excited to work with you! All I require to reserve your date and time is a signed contract and a non-refundable 50% retainer. I utilize paypal for most of my transactions. Please note: the State of Texas requires the application of 8.25% sales tax to all sales. Your session is not considered booked unless the contract and retainer have been received. Full payment is due prior to the day of the session.
