Frequently Asked Questions

Figuring this out with you is what I am all about! I have a guide to help you all ready to send out. I work with a leader in your organization to help you plan what stories & images we want to capture together. I’ll get to know your organization so your images tell your story, affirm your work, and propel your mission forward. This is the work that drives me! 

WHAT IF I NEED HELP TO KNOW WHAT IMAGES OUR ORGANIZATION NEEDS TO CAPTURE?

First, we select a date & time that works for us to capture your story then I send you our contract & booking info. At the time of booking a $150 retainer is due to secure your date & time. The balance is due the day of our session. I do not hold dates without a paid retainer & signed contract.  

How does booking & payment work?

Yes!! Travel is one of my LOVE languages. I lived overseas in Tanzania, East Africa for 4 years (I speak Swahili) & am ready to pack my gear and meet you anywhere. I would love to join you anywhere in the world to help capture your story. Inquire for a custom quote. You can also check my Book Me page for current travel dates. 

Do you travel?

Ugh- it happens. We will watch it closely for any outdoor sessions but I usually do not cancel too far in advance (although we will decide before you get yo’ self fancy) because often weather changes and the day of we can make it work. If weather prevents us from having our session your retainer is credited to a future session & we work to find a date that works for both of us.

What happens if the weather is terrible?

That is totally normal- MOST people (including me for sure) feel awkward in front of the camera. I work hard to create an experience where your true personality comes out. I give you direction and we adjust together so it feels like YOU. We focus on actions instead of stiff poses and my clients often tell me that something they thought would be so awkward was painless, easy, & even fun!  

What if I am nervous?

Of course- I LOVE when clients are able to share their story through their website or social media- I do not require you to use watermarked images but I so appreciate my clients tagging me as much of my biz comes from my fabulous clients recommending me to others.

Can we use images for our website/social media?

Every session, event, or storytelling session is different. Usually for Family Lifestyle or Creative Portrait Sessions my clients get a gallery of 75-100 images (or more!!). order if you so choose. I want to give my clients ALL the beautiful & fun images we capture together and don't charge you extra for any more over a certain amount! Events or Organization Storytelling Sessions vary depending on the number of hours of coverage. I promise I won't leave anything out and you'll get the best of the best of what we captured. I can send you a full gallery to check out if you are interested in seeing an example of a full gallery- just ask!

How many images are included? 

You will get a link in your email to your gallery. The you can download your entire gallery of high-resolution images to your computer or device. Be sure to back up the images as well somewhere safe.  

How will I receive my images?

At the time of booking I send you a guide of helpful tips for a great session & we can discuss this on our phone consult. Basic tips are no logos, no neon colors, & don’t be too matchy-matchy. Be you!

What should I wear?

Nope. I treat my clients how I want to be treated & printing your images is your choice. You have a print release with your invoice. I do offer high quality printing (individual prints, books, photo canvases, etc) through your gallery link & the only way I can guarantee quality is through my site. If you do print elsewhere please choose a high quality printer that will do justice to the hand edited images. Big box stores just do not change their toner or have the quality to allow your images to look amazing. 

Am I required to purchase prints?

Real talk: imperfectly perfect images that share your authentic story are what this is all about. I want to encourage you to embrace your right now & I am going to encourage you to live fully into your fabulous selves at our session. Life starts TODAY- it is all we have! I'm not about making people look thinner, fake, or unrealistic. In my opinion there is too much of that in our world. I want to capture the REAL stuff; your messy & beautiful life. Because THOSE are the moments that matter. THOSE are the moments you're going to want to remember in 10, 20, 50 years. Of course, if your child scratched themselves or you got a pimple or you accidentally got mud on your jeans (something that is temporary) I will definitely edit that in our images.

Will you photoshop us in our session?

Nope. Editing your images is part of my expertise that you hire me for so watch what magic we create together. I consider it part of the art form of storytelling & I spend a lot of time hand editing each image in your gallery. We need to build trust with one another & I am confident you will love the final result.

Do you give out raw/unedited images?
