the experience

From the moment you book, until long after your photos are delivered, I want this experience to be meaningful for you!

You see, when you invest in a photographer, you're investing in a lot more than someone to snap photos. I'm there to make sure the whole process flows seamlessly for you. After you book, you can expect a couple of things...

First, I ask all of my clients to fill out a super short questionnaire to help me get to know you better! I want to know more about you and each member of your family, so that I can offer the best possible experience for you behind the lens.

After you book, I'll also send over a "What to Wear Guide" to help ease any outfit-related stress. I know choosing outfits can be tough, so I've put together my best tips and advice to help you choose clothes that feel like you AND photograph well. However, I wouldn't stress too much! If you wear what you love, that’s going to be the most beautiful of all!

Finally, if you remember anything, remember this: I never expect you to be a model. My job is to help you relax, feel natural, and be your true, comfortable self in front of the lens. You don't need to worry about practicing poses or let the nerves take over, I'll be sure the end result is something you love!

faq

1. WHEN CAN I EXPECT the PHOTOS AFTER OUR SESSION?

After your session, I will deliver your photos via an online gallery within 2-4 weeks of your session date. Thank you so much in advance for your patience in this process! I take my time handpicking and fine tuning each and every image so that every photo you receive will be up to my standards.

2. HOW DO WE PRINT OUR PHOTOS?

To print your photos, you can easily order professional quality prints, albums and gifts right from your online gallery! My sessions always include a print release which means you are welcome to print your photos as many times as you'd like, wherever you'd like, for your personal use.

3. WHAT IS YOUR EDITING POLICY? WILL YOU PHOTOSHOP (FILL IN THE BLANK)?

I personally edit each & every image to enhance the beauty that’s already there & will retouch anything that would not normally be there (like a skin blemish, bruise, etc.). If there is anything you are worried about showing up in your final images, like patches of red skin, etc. please let me know, and I can take special care in editing these areas.

4. DO YOU Offer SUGGESTIONS ON WHAT TO WEAR FOR SESSIONS?

Yes! I know choosing outfits can be stressful and I truly want to make this experience as stress-free as possible for you! Upon booking, I will send over a what-to-wear guide to help ease any outfit related stress. However, I wouldn't stress too much about it -- it's your connection we're really after!

5. DO YOU Have any indoor spaces we can use?

Yes! My studio space is located in Duluth. It has white walls, simple furniture and beautiful natural light for photos! Because of the limited space, this is for families with little ones (up to 6 people total).

6. DO YOU offer mini sessions?

I’m currently offering mini sessions on a few select dates each year! These sessions are just what they sound like — mini versions of my full sessions. They are 20 minutes in length, include a small batch of photos and come at a discounted rate. I choose the locations for these ahead of time, based on what’s best for the season! (If you prefer to choose your own location, one of my lifestyle sessions may be a better choice for you.)
