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 seniors (sorry - this ones for you, grad - not for moms!) to fill out a super short questionnaire to help me get to know you better! I want to know more about YOU, what you love and what you're looking forward to in your last year of high school, so that I can offer the best possible experience for you behind the lens.

Along with a questionnaire, I'll 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!

Above all, photography is an investment. Beyond a service, you're investing in something far greater: memories you'll look back on for a lifetime. I offer a variety of packages to fit various photo needs. For full package details and availability, please fill out my contact form and we'll get the ball rolling!

FAQ

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

After your session, I will deliver your photos via an online gallery within 2-3 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 YOU DELIVER YOUR PHOTOS?

After your session, I will deliver your photos via an online gallery where you’ll be able to share, download and print your photos as many times as you wish, wherever you wish. To print your photos, you can easily order professional quality prints, albums and gifts right from your online gallery or your favorite print shop!

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, I have a natural light studio in Duluth that we can use at no extra cost to you! The space has white walls and neutral furniture and works great for grad portraits.
