Your Moments Matter
I put all my heart into my work
I know I can show up capture a beautiful photo by picking an awesome location during golden hour, but it’s more then that for me. It’s easy for me to just show up and not put any emotion into what I capture but being a photographer means way more to me than just taking a photo. I put every ounce of my soul into my photographs.
I will focus on real moments. Nothing staged or nothing forced. It’s the real, genuine, and sweet stuff. I will of course guide you as we shoot so you’re not awkwardly standing there wondering what the heck do I do, but it’s important to me that you guys are being 100% yourselves and present with one another. This way, we can capture you for who you really are.
I'm not going to be just some random person and you're not just another client. I want you to trust me I want you and your family to enjoy yourselves and have fun while we hang out and I capture some awesome moments.
connecting & building trust is a big deal
I keep saying how important it is for us to have a connection. That’s because when I know you are invested and at ease I can give you the best of me. The main focus before anything else is to make sure you and your family are having a having a good time and having fun. I have so many parent tell me how the hated getting photos taken as kids or how it was always forced smiles. That’s not what it going to be like. I want to pick a location that you and you family love to visit and have memories at or explore a new place that you have been wanting to go to that way everyone is relaxed and having a good time.
I know family photos can be stressful with little ones but don’t worry, I do my best to work around their naps and remember they run the show not me. I have 12 nieces with all kinds of different personalities so I’d say I’m pretty good with kids. I’m happy to help in any way that I can to make sure this is a stress-free experience for you guys so please let me know if I can do anything to make things easier!
I want choosing a photographer to be something you are excited to do. To this day I still go to my parents house and go through all the old albums with photos of my family. I always tell my parents how grateful I am that they took all these great photos of us. It’s something that will continue to increase in value over time as the images get passed down for generations

Q & A
HOW MANY IMAGES ARE INCLUDED?
As a minimum I deliver a minimum of 50. I don’t put a set number of how many you will receive, but I never leave anything out. I don’t put a cap or limit on what I deliver. Every session is different and varies from the last, and numbers are always changing. If you’d like to see some full sessions galleries please feel free to ask! I’m happy to send over a few so you can get an idea of what I deliver.
DO YOU GIVE RAWS?
Absolutely not. If you feel that I missed a moment I can definitely go though the images again but in no case do I give raw files.
WHAT IF WE NEED TO CANCEL/RESCHEDULE OUR SHOOT?
I get it life sometime throws some unexpected curve balls. If you’ve already but a retainer down on a date and then have to move/cancel it, the retainer is non-refundable. If I’m available on the new date I will be more then happy to transfer your retainer to the new date. If you want to cancel I will be un-able to refund the non-refundable retainer. I don’t do this because I’m trying steal money from you, but because I turn down other jobs for your specific date I count on that money to pay my bill and continue to run my business.
WHAT HAPPENS IS IF YOU CAN’T MAKE IT TO OUR SHOOT?
God forbid this happens, but in the case of some natural disaster, life threatening situation of my control happens making me unable to make it to your shoot, then I will reschedule to a later date that works for you. In the case of the later date not working, you will be fully refunded.
WHAT IF I NEED TO RESCHEDULE DUE TO WEATHER?
We can reschedule if the weather is really awful, but some of my favorite sessions ever have been in the rain! And wind? Gahhhhh… wind is amazing and helps create some really awesome photos! The only time I’ve rescheduled a photo shoot due to weather is if my camera will be ruined by the weather. We will make that decision together whether we need to reschedule or not
HOW DO PAYMENT SCHDULES WORK?
I require 50% down at the time of booking to hold your date, and the remaining due 1 month prior to your shoot date. I accept venmo, cash, or through my honeybook platform.
CAN YOU PHOTOSHOP US TO LOOK SKINNIER / HAVE CLEAR SKIN?
I don’t change people appearance. I want to focus on making you feel beautiful, rather then look unrealistic. So no, I don’t Photoshop your bodies to appear different then they actually are . Yes, I clear up skin and remove distractions,
WHAT DO WE WEAR FOR PHOTOS?
Wear something that is comfortable and is your style be yourselves! Sticking to neutrals is best, but message me and I can help you choose outfits based on the location we will shoot at. If you feel that you need extra help let me know I have a what to wear guide that has some helpful tips
