How would you describe your style?
I am a storyteller, only I do it through photos, instead of words. I am excited to capture the flow of moments as they happen. This is real life, and it’s what you want to remember.
My post-processing style is reminiscent of classic film photography, with a little bit of a modern twist. I am a huge fan of black and white imagery, but I will always present you with the color version of a B&W, as well.
How do I book my session?
Once you’ve looked through my portfolio and decide that I am the photographer for you, you can fill out my contact form to get the scheduling process started. We will talk about what you are looking for, both during the session and beyond, and I even have a nifty, little questionnaire to help you narrow down a plan of attack for your session.
Once a session date and time is decided, I require 50% of the session fee as a non-refundable retainer to hold the spot on my calendar. To ensure the attention to detail that I feel is important to provide each clients, I only book a limited number of sessions a month.
What happens if it rains, or someone gets sick?
I totally understand that life happens, I will always try to be as flexible as possible. If you need to reschedule your session, please try to give me at least 48 hours notice. I won’t always be able to guarantee the same time or day of the week, but I will do what I can to accommodate your needs.
In the case of inclement weather, if the session is scheduled for outdoors, we can either reschedule, or brainstorm some ideas for possible indoor locations.
Do you offer payment plans? How do they work?
I absolutely do! Photography is an investment in preserving memories for generations to come, and it is important to me that it is available to anyone who would like to have a record of life’s moments.
Payment plans can be discussed at initial consultation, and are payable by cash (with receipt), check, or credit/debit card. No prints or products are delivered, until balance is paid in full.
Will you come to my home?
I will. Your home is the heart of your family. It’s where each day begins and ends. Whether it’s a family game night, cooking dinner together, or a pick-up game of catch in the backyard, I’m happy to come and capture your fun, family moments in the comfort of your own home.
Are you willing to travel to destination weddings, sessions, or other events outside of your immediate area?
ABSOLUTELY! I love to travel, about as much as I love photography. Put them together, and voila! Depending on location, travel expenses will be calculated into the final cost. If your destination is on my Photography Bucket List, special discounts may apply. Contact me for more details.
Do you provide mini sessions?
Aside from a few special event minis each year, I offer a limited number of weekday evening spots. These are 20-30 minute sessions, with 5 high-resolution digital images included, for $250. Any mini sessions that I offer must be paid in full to reserve your spot.
How long will it take until I get to see my photos?
Please allow 2-4 weeks between your photo session and your gallery delivery. I try to get your images to you as quickly as I can, without sacrificing quality and attention to detail. However, there are some times of the year that are busier than others, and if that is the case, my turnaround time may be a little longer. I thank you, in advance, for your patience.
What kinds of products do you offer?
In addition to archival quality gift and wall prints, I offer gallery wrapped canvases, flush-mount coffee table books, genuine leather albums, and more! If there is something particular you are looking for, let me know, and I will work with my professional lab to create it for you.
I am also able to work with you to create a custom gallery wall(s), and show you, to scale, how your photos will look on display in your home.
I really only wanted the digital files, is that something you offer?
We have been hopelessly cast into the digital era, and I have no choice but to try and keep up. I have included high resolution digital image bundles in each of my collections, and you are always welcome to purchase additional high-resolution images a la carte. All high-res images include a personal print release. I do retain the copyright to my images, and altering or further editing the images, in any way, is prohibited by law.
All collections include a resized and watermarked gallery for proofing and sharing on social media.
But wait…I have more questions! What do I do now?
Call me up, or shoot me an email, and I will get to the bottom of whatever you’d like to know…unless it has to do with complex math or quantum physics.
