Finding a photographer isn’t a hard task, however finding the RIGHT photographer can be.
my goal here is to help you shine and have fun while doing it.
The Best way I can do that is to know more about you, plus I also just love to meet new people. The best way I know to help you feel comfortable, is for you for us to talk. let's set up a call where we can get together. I’ll learn about your needs and expectations. You’ll also learn about me, what I do, session and print offerings, next steps and more.
But I've got questions...
Do I have to schedule a consultation before my session?
Not necessarily but it is recommended. We can meet up for coffee or talk over the phone and discuss your expectations, needs, inspirations etc. We will talk about session pricing, payment plans and wardrobe ideas so you have a clear idea of what to expect with me. I'm sure most of your questions can be answered right here.
What are the session fees?
My sessions range from $250-$500, however every client's needs vary. It doesn't make sense for my clients to be stuck to one price or package. It's important to me to make sure you're completely satisfied.
What's included in my session fee?
Sessions include a consultation with me prior to your session. We can talk more about your expectation before, during and after your session. We can also discuss wardrobe questions you may have and any other special requests.
Sessions also include my travel to/from location (within 20 miles of zip code 53208). Sessions are 1 hour or more in location or in home. I cull the images we take that day and create an online gallery. You choose your favorites to be edited and made web-ready.
Your gallery includes the agreed upon number of edited web ready images. Want more? No problem. We can add additional edits for a fee. Those edits remain in the gallery. You also have the ability to order prints and gifts from my online store.
I am also happy to accommodate payment plans prior to your session.
What should a wear?
Whatever you're most comfortable in. Images are more compelling with varied colors and textures. It can be overwhelming to style things on your own. I'm happy to help style a wardrobe for your session based on the aesthetic you're looking for. I've partnered with Style & Select to help in the curation of photo shoot wardrobes.
Need a hair or makeup artist?
Contact me for pricing and availability.
Can I extend the session on the day of?
Certainly! sometimes the fun just doesn't want to stop. Schedule permitting, we can extend your session longer for $50/additional 45 mins.
When can I expect my images?
Within 1 weeks after your session, you'll receive an email to view your online gallery and choose your favorites. We will set up a time to view the images together and choose which ones you'd like in your final gallery to be received 2-3 weeks after that. That time allows me to fully put my creativity and love into each image. You will receive download instructions for your session including digital files and any coupons codes that apply.
Want the final edits within a week? Expedited images can happen at an additional charge of $75+tax.
Where can I order physical prints?
Through me of course! Your session comes with digital downloads for your personal use. Some clients find it easier to direct friends and family to their gallery so they can order prints on their own. This saves everyone time and I'm happy to help with clear instructions.
For prints, I always recommend printing through me as I use a reputable high quality printer. Big box stores like Walgreen's, Walmart, Target, etc. are not high quality printers. The color, quality & clarity of the images severely decreases when using these printers for images printed any higher than 5"x7" so I prohibit use in my print release.
Do you shoot on location at events?
While portraiture is my love, I do offer event photography for $100/hour with a minimum of 2 hours. A 50% deposit is due at the time of event booking. and a mileage fee is incurred when traveling 20+ miles outside of the 53208 area code.
