My photography style is organic. I want to find the moments in our sessions that are not always posed, but beautiful and timeless. I strive for two things during our sessions 1) to become friends and 2) to capture RAH and special moments that you will cherish forever. I will be with you every step of the way in any kind of session you book. From giving advice before our session to cheering you on during our session while you stand in front of my camera - I am there the entire time, capturing your story.
List of frequently asked questions and answers below. This information will be updated frequently and subject to change.
Where do you live and can you travel?
I live in Austin, Texas and I shoot all over the city and surrounding areas. If you would like to book me out-of-town or state, you most certainly can! Travel fees will be added to your session price based on details we discuss together.
Where do the sessions take place? Do you have a studio?
Sessions normally take place outdoors or in my clients' homes. For outdoor sessions, I am happy to provide location suggestions within Austin and surrounding areas.
How will we receive our images and how long will it take to receive those images?
I provide a secured, password protected online gallery for you to view and download your digital images. The link and password to your online gallery will be provided to you in a personal email from me. Like you, I am just as excited to see the final images, so I work efficiently to provide you all your edited images. I guarantee the images back to you between 7 to 21 days of your booked session. This deadline excludes my wedding packages.
Do we receive all raw, unedited images in addition to the edited images?
The raw, unedited image files are not available in your online gallery. The images you view have been carefully selected and edited. The the final images reflect a high standard and quality. Please rest assured that any images not delivered truly are outtakes.
Do we get the copyright of the images?
This is a question I get asked often. Many photographers provide a "copyright release", in order for you to have your images printed by yourself. That is not the same thing as obtaining a copyright. Copyright simply means that I am the creator of the images, and I own the copyright. Obtaining a copyright release is not possible, however I will provide a 'Photo Release Form' so you will have the ability to print and share your images as much as you would like!
Do you offer printing services as well?
I do not provide any printing services at this time. You can print at any lab of your choice. I would be happy to suggest some of my favorites if needed.
What should I wear?
I am happy to discuss any ideas and help prepare you before our session. My go-to tips are 1) color coordinate, never color match and 2) wear something that you feel comfortable in and shows your personality.
I am not photogenic at all, what do I do?
All my clients tell me this before their session, it is completely not true! When you are having a great time, you will look more beautiful than you that was possible, I promise. I will coach you throughout the entire experience and provide you with a few tricks to make you look stunning. Confidence is key!
What if my kids do not cooperate?
I love my little clients and getting to know them. I approach our sessions with patience, kindness and corny jokes. With that said, not every session will be smooth and perfect. And guess what? That is totally OKAY. In fact, I encourage all the imperfections because my goal is to capture their true personality, which include all the quirks, tears, smiles and small moments that make up their childhood.
