What to expect when you book a session with me

Updated: Nov 22, 2018

All photographers have their own personal style and different way of doing things, I'm no different. Here are a few things about me and my style that you can expect at any of my sessions.



I am more than willing to be silly


Have a stubborn 3 year old? A hubby who would rather be doing anything else? I like to capture my clients with their most natural reactions. To do that I rely on using fun/sappy/sometimes awkward activities and actions. For example, I may ask a couple to kiss with their teeth or whisper something random in each others ears, or I may ask a mom and dad to sneak up and bear hug their kids. This always gets such charismatic expressions where personalities shine through.

A little bit of an introvert? Don't worry I can absolutely tone it down. I used to be shy and introverted, I had social anxiety so I know how it feels. Trust me though, I won't bite or do anything that makes you uncomfortable! We can sit and talk before the shoot and get to know each other, it always helps :)


Light & Bright

This is plain and simple! If you've made it this far you might have seen some of my work, I LOVE light and airy photos. If you prefer darker or a different style I can do that too but you an see my signature work anywhere on my site.







Turn around times

I am one of the most impatient people in the world in both waiting for something I want, and doing something I want to do. I'm one of those people that gets a paint sample to see if I like a color and end up painting the entire room within a day because I can't wait to see how it looks.

That being said I LOVE editing. I started editing professionally before I started professional photography and after a shoot I can't wait to see all of the moments I've captured. Once I see the images I can't wait to edit them ASAP to see the finished product, it's like Christmas to me. So my turn around time is usually pretty fast!


Social Media

I usually like to post sneak peaks for my clients and I love to share images of shoots on my Photography Social Media accounts. When you sign your contract for your session I will include a Model Release for every person in the shoot (including kids). It's completely up to you if you sign it but like I said, I LOVE showing off your bright smiling faces!

Join my facebook so you can share your sneak peaks or albums and also see deals for future sessions! I'm in the works of creating an exclusive page just for clients where you can get deals first, sign up for mini sessions or other limited sessions first and more!


Online Everything!

Finally, I like to keep things like paperwork simple and get it all out of the way so we can get to the fun part, the session! Everything I provide from pricing to contracts to delivery is online (unless you buy a USB/prints/etc). I'll still call for things but the paperwork is easy and quick.

You can find your Personalized Albums on my website with a private code so only you can view them and you can order prints directly from your album. You can also mark your favorites and put them into separate sub-albums


If you only purchased a certain number of images with your album you're able to select which images you want from the entire album.


For some sessions I am able to send you a personalized app of your album to your Mac or Android devices! You can then download or share your images straight from the app. This is one of my favorite delivery methods!!



If you have any questions about booking or sessions don't hesitate to call / facebook / email / text / etc.
