Story Time (otherwise known as your experience)

From the moment you contact me I hope you'll consider me your best friend. Is that a little pushy? Okay - how about good friends? Yeah, yeah, that sounds better! Seriously though, I will be here to walk you through the entire process, and hopefully to make this stress free without any kerfuffles.

I will schedule a pre-session consult (which can be done by phone) where we will start talking locations, things you like, things you don't like, whether you want to have a glamorous shoot or a sports shoot or a grunge - remember this is about YOU. Once I find out what you are looking for I will use my super powers to come up with locations that coincide with what we both want as I will be looking for the perfect lighting, somewhere with a variety of places for poses, etc. And before I forget - let's talk poses. Honestly, I am more of a natural photographer. I may have you tilt your head this way or that, or move your arms, or cross them but I'm really more concerned with candid shots that capture the essence of who you are and that is most definitely not always found by striking a pose.

From the booking to the post-session consultation where I reveal your photos, I will be here by your side. I will answer questions and if I don't have the answer I will find the answer. I will help pick the perfect outfit, and provide back-up in case something happens at the shoot. My car will be full of necessities including a changing tent, blankets, towels, and numerous other items that just might come in handy. I might even have a snack or two - you never know what I'll bring along!

Where do you hold your sessions?

I have some favorite locations (one is my own backyard!) but I am always open to exploring and trying out new locations. All I ask is for you to let me know ahead of time so if we need to adjust the starting time due to lighting, we can. Travel up to 60 miles, one way, is included in your session fee.

What should I/we wear?

I suggest wearing what is comfortable and reflects your favorite style and fashion. If buying a new outfit, ask yourself if you would wear it again. If the answer is no, odds are it does not truly reflect who you are. I also suggest staying away from loud/wild/crazy patterns and shirts with logos or graphics. Neutral solid colors that compliment each is a great idea for groups or families. After your session is booked, I do have additional information I will send you.

Will we receive digital images?

You will receive low-res files of the images you select for prints and/or products. These files can be used for social media. Please be sure to read your contract regarding proper use of digital images. Digital images are available for purchase, which we would discuss in more detail at your post-session photo reveal.

How do I buy prints?

At your post-session photo reveal, I will sit down with you and show you all images in your gallery. From there we will narrow down your choices and begin to discuss prints and or products. We can view how prints will look on your wall, and discuss the best options for your print/product credit.

Do I have to order prints through you?

Well don't forget that all but $100 of your session price is a print/product credit. While you do not have to order additional prints/product through me, if you want additional images, I do highly recommend it. (Please note that you are under no obligation to spend more than your amount previously paid for print/product credit.) Yes, you could have your images printed at a local, retail store; however, I am confident once you see the difference in quality between a professional lab and a retail store, you will understand why I make this recommendation. Professional labs are better able to color match. I have seen cheaper options and the colors were off, and images appeared blurry.

Why should we book through you?

Great question! I like to have fun and laugh, bring smiles to others, and to walk away with new friends. I am natural, simple, honest, love meeting new people, and passionate about capturing stories you'll cherish forever.
