FUN! This is not your stiff, 90s matching outfit photoshoot. My style is a combination of play-based candids, lightly posed with gentle direction, creating images that are full of life and movement. I’ll give you tons of ideas and direction throughout your session to help you feel at ease - relaxed, natural and playful. I want you to feel free to move and have fun! I may ask you to do or say somethings that are kind of silly in order to draw these interactions out. Go with it! I'm assuming you like my work, and you want photos like these, so put your trust in me - I got you!
Portrait Sessions - no longer than two weeks
Weddings - no longer than six weeks
It's just me behind this screen; no team of editors or anything like that. I do my best to get everything to you as fast as I can!
Yes! For portrait sessions, you will receive 75+ high resolution, fully edited, digital images.
For weddings, you will receive 75-100 high resolution, fully edited, digital images for every hour of coverage (ex. 8 hours = 600-800 images).
I can't tell you how many times I hear this. Don't worry about a thing! Everyone is photogenic as long as they're out of their own head. The best thing you can do is to come to the shoot relaxed, with an open mind and open heart. I will do everything in my power to get you feelin' comfortable and ready to rock it! We'll play games, talk a lot, and laugh a ton. I'll be there to guide you along the way. It'll be a blast!
Colors to avoid: BRIGHTS, overpowering colors like true yellows, reds, coral, and greens. These are always harder on skin tones.
Colors that work: Neutrals, softer colors like ivory, sage, light blue, mustards, dusty reds/burgundy, olives, etc.
Dresses: You can't go wrong with long, flowy dresses! Shorter dresses are fun but are harder to move and play in, and we are going to be moving A LOT! We don't want any peek-a-boo action ;).
Prints: Patterns are fun! I just recommend avoiding tighter patterns like pinstripes, or gingham.
No logos on clothing please!
Your images will be edited and color-corrected to reflect my style as seen in my portfolio. I will remove elements that are not normally there, such as blemishes. However, heavy retouching, like weight reduction, will be subject to a per image fee.
