Q & A



How many pictures will we receive?

The amount of images you will receive depends on the package selected when booking. Don't worry if you decide you can't narrow down your selection of favorites, there is an option to purchase additional edits.

What’s the best time of day for my session?

Early morning or late afternoon are the best times for portrait photography. I like to avoid midday if possible. This is due to the sun's position in the sky. Unless it Is an overcast day, midday often creates unflattering shadows. Most clients opt for "golden hour" so we can capture those beautiful, warm sunset photos directly before the sun goes down.

How long will it take to get my images back?

Editing is the most time consuming part of the entire process. Depending on the type of session you had or amount of edits you selected, editing time varies. On average, I aim to return wedding photos in 4-6 weeks. All other sessions I aim for a 2 week turnaround. If your session is ever expected to take longer than what I have estimated, I will reach out and keep you updated along the way.

How should we dress for our family session?

Don't stress about what to wear! I am here to help you. I will send a style guide full of tips and am more than happy to give any additional advice as needed.

We don’t feel very confident in front of the camera, is that ok?

Many clients have fears or insecurities when getting in front of the camera but I am here to guide you to look and feel your best! You don't have to worry about "feeling awkward" or "not knowing what to do" that is what I am here for!

Do you travel for weddings/sessions?

I do not travel more than a two-hour radius at the moment. This may change in the future as my children get older.
