Yes, I we have a studio but we will more than likely not shoot there. We watch the weather to make sure that your shoot is good to go. Any day with a 60% chance of rain will most likely be rescheduled to another date.
I urge against using anything that will look outdated in several years. We want these images to be timeless.
It is best to schedule a time closer to sunrise or sunset for the most flattering lighting.
We pose every bit of you for the most flattering angles and portraits. You will be coached every step of the way, and you can relax knowing that we have your posing covered. Also, we go over posing and best practices during your consultation.
We recommend 3-5 outfits depending on how the shoot goes.
Of course! Every senior portrait is professionally retouched unless requested otherwise. Anything impermanent is subject to retouching, but we can have a conversation about braces, scars, and anything you are concerned about.
Realistically, many of my senior portrait clients invest between $1800-$3000 on their portrait session and products. So that my clients walk away with the images and products that they love, I offer payment plans.
I am here to guide you through the images to find the ones you love, answer questions, and to guide you through how you can display them. This step is important so that we know you are walking away with a great experience and beautiful keepsakes.
Your gallery will be delivered two weeks after your session.

For women, we highly suggest investing in professional hair and makeup services. Makeup and hair for photography is different than the average everyday look, and a professional can help you look and feel your absolute best.
DO I NEED PROFESSIONAL HAIR AND MAKEUP?
This is a question we will decide during out preconsultation/planning meeting. It’s extremely important to us that your photoshoot location matches who you are. We will offer up suggestions for locations based on your personality and style.
We will cover all of this in your preconsultation/planning meeting, but you will want to bring changes of clothing to all senior picture sessions
What Do We Need To Bring?
No worries I'll send you a Session Guide on how to prepare for your photoshoot.
This is what the planning meeting is all about. I will start brainstorming locations after we've met or we will search for locations during our meeting. These locations are all based on what you like, your style, and personality.
What Should We Do To Prepare For The Session?
I Know What Kind Of Look I Want, But I’m Not Sure What Locations To Go To In Order To Achieve It. Can You Suggest Options?
Having a month or two to prepare for your photoshoot date to ensure your date, prep your outfits, and plan your shoot is an ideal situation. Of course, it doesn’t always work out that way. This year we have done sessions that we book a week in advance, and have our images in front of our clients a week after the photoshoot.
How Far In Advance Should I Book My Session?
