WHAT TO EXPECT
What did you have in mind? Am I curating a concept for you? What vibe are you going for? Do certain locations, editing, or looks inspire you? Are you shy? Do you like to dance? What is the meaning of this session to you?
Send me all of the details! We can discuss this via text or email, or we can hop on a call!
I always prefer when the outfits and the location complement each other. If you need my guidance, I'm happy to assist with styling! Tell me what you're going for, talk to me about your style, and you're even welcome to send me your wardrobe budget and apparel size; I can send you some links to outfits.
I have a handful of preferred locations in the greater Austin area that I'm happy to share during our planning period! If you're looking for a specific look that I don't have a suggestion for, or if your session takes place outside of Austin, I will location scout for you! If you have a location suggestion, please let me know during our planning period. If your preferred location charges a fee, I will make the arrangements, but you will be responsible for paying that fee in addition to your session balance.
We meet! We shoot, we dance, maybe...if you like to dance(: you bring your best self and I bring mine! If this is a family shoot, be aware that I'm likely going to let your toddler take the lead. In a good way! If this is a couples shoot, be ready to like...hold each other...while I third-wheel y'all. Oh, it's so exciting! Bring your hype playlist, bring an extra cardigan, bring a snack or a seltzer! I'll give you a few prompts and give you some light directions and tips on poses, but for the most part, I just want you to exist.
Within 3 days you'll receive a sample gallery of watermarked/unedited photos to choose the photos that are included in your package. If you'd like to purchase additional photos, you may add them on.
Turnaround time is generally 10-14 days from the day you confirm your photo selections. Events and elopements may take up to 6 weeks. You will receive a private gallery with your selected photos, along with a handful of creative/detail shots.
I highly recommend ordering prints through me, as all prints are sent in from a professional printing lab available to businesses. Print releases may be purchased for the highest resolution versions for you to print on your own.
To secure your session date on my calendar, a $150 non-refundable retainer is required. The remaining balance will be due 48 hours before our session. Any travel fees must be paid upon booking (in addition to your retainer). Payment plans are available upon request.
As of January 2023, I am booking weddings! If you are a bride or groom-to-be, I would love to set up a Zoom call to answer any questions you may have and see if we fit each others' vibe!
Wedding package rates vary but will typically range from $1600-$3000 for digital delivery. Local elopements in the greater Austin area start at $500. I do offer a range of prints & keepsakes.
OPTION TO PURCHASE ADDITIONAL PHOTOS STARTING at $20 per photo
If a friend has referred you, please mention that in your inquiry form!
I am currently accepting creative, portrait, senior, couple, maternity, family sessions, and elopements.
Weddings and small events are accepted on a case-by-case basis.
I Can't wait to meet you!
Can you edit my double chin out/make me skinnier/make me look tan/etc.?
I do small cosmetic edits, such as removing flakes, removing a couple of zits upon request, fixing an occasional bra strap that was showing, etc. Upon request, I can make minimal edits to your natural beauty/genetics, but I do not alter your God-given body:)<3
Can you send me the RAW/unedited photos?
I do not send out RAW or unedited images. You may purchase the RAWs for an additional fee.
Do I have to order prints through you?
If you would like the colors and quality to be at its best, yes! If you would like to develop your digital photos at a store, a print release can be purchased for an additional fee (headshots and industry photos excluded).
