My photography style is a balance of beautiful, natural light portraits, colorful details, and sweet, true to life, in between moments. Discover more about my photography style  and process below.

THE PROCESS 

I'M MORE THAN JUST YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER.

FROM PLANNING TO BEYOND DELIVERY, I'LL TREAT YOU LIKE A FRIEND.

01. Imagine the 

Possibilities

02. storytime

When you like what you see, fill out a contact form here to send me your story, vision, and goals.

03. Let's chat

I will schedule a video call for us to get to know each other better and discuss your vision. All questions are welcome at this time.

04. make it official

I will send you a contract. After it is signed and I receive a 25% non-refundable retainer, your date is officially saved.

05. create with

We will create imagery of your dreams as we exchange ideas and plan the shoot together. I will work with you to select your desired location, photo timeline, and fashion. I suggest resources for inspiration, kindly share advice on details, and send tips on how to prepare. Also, I memorize my shot list and  photo timeline, so all you have to do is show up, have fun, and focus on the love that surrounds you.

06. Day of magic

It is my priority to help you feel comfortable in front of the camera, so I bring cheerful spirit to remind you how brightly you shine along the way. This is my fave time because I get a natural high from being present along side you and watching the joyful, playfulness that magically unfolds. 

07. PoST Workflow

After I upload the RAW images to my hard drive and import them into Lightroom, I select the best ones to edit. Color correcting and retouching my favorite photos is an important part of my creative process. I do not offer RAW images or images that are unedited. I export photos as JPEGs at 300 ppi.  

08. photo Delivery

We will stay in touch about your photo delivery date. You will receive a beautiful online gallery of 5-10 highlight photos 7 days after our time together, so you can quickly and easily share them with your friends and family. The best, high resolution, edited photos will be delivered no later than 2 weeks for 30 minute sessions, no later than 4 weeks  for 1 hour sessions, and no later than 8 weeks for elopements and wedding day coverage.

Overall, I will provide you a service that will tell your intimate life story in an artistic and authentic way.  If you want warmth, friendliness, creativity, organization, experience, professionalism, and grace under pressure, I'm your gal.  I bring 110% to our day together, so that you can enjoy the experience to the fullest.

CLEANLINESS AND HEALTH

It is of utmost importance to us.  This is why we use masks, sanitize equipment, wash hands consistently, and practice physical distancing while shooting with the right lenses.
