Can I bring my dog?
A. Absolutely! I love including dogs. However, some locations do not allow pets. Please contact me to discuss some dog-friendly shooting locations.

How is the location of the shoot determined?
A. Even though I’m happy to suggest locations and times, my clients typically do their own research in regards to the location and setting along with securing any type of permission needed.

Do I have to order prints through you?
A. Not at all! Since you receive the high resolution files your are welcome to have printed on your own, however, you can also order prints right off your image gallery. Any prints ordered are professionally printed with accurate skin tones, etc.

What should we wear?
A. Above all else, wear something that you feel comfortable in. I generally recommend that families coordinate tones and colors to create a pleasing color palette for their images. Matching outfits are not required (and in my opinion should be avoided.) If you are struggling with what to wear, I recommend choosing an outfit for the most difficult person to dress first, then coordinating the other outfits around that color palette. Feel free to reach out if you need help!

Do you Retouch each photograph?
A. Post shoot photo editing consists of general color and tonal correction and “light” retouching. Keep in mind that extensive cosmetic retouching is not included in the package price. If needed feel free to reach out for Retouching fees.

What should I do if it’s breezy and I have longer hair?
A. Sometimes wind at photo shoots and “fly-away” just can’t be avoided. I highly recommend this hair gel product that can be purchased on Amazon here .

Do you photograph weddings?
A. Presently I am doing intimate weddings along with elopements. Reach out and we can chat about your event.
