FAQs

The nitty gritty

Got some pressing questions that I can help answer? 

What areas do you serve?

I currently reside in Austin, Texas and serve clients here in Austin, as well as in surrounding areas. I'm also available (and oh-so-willing) to travel! I mean, just look at these mountains!

How would you describe your photography style?

I am a lifestyle + documentary photographer and love moments filled with beautiful light and authentic connection. I will guide you in an organic way to tell all the details of your beautiful story. I'm really into details, like dimpled fingers, baby lashes, and everything in between. If you're seeking more posed photos where subjects are smiling at the camera, I'm not the right fit for you. If you're looking for a true storytelling experience filled with connection and love, then let's do this! Want to know if I'm a good fit? This post will give you insight as to whether or not we are a match! 

What makes you different?

Not only do I believe in authentically capturing your story, but I believe in giving you a top client experience from start to finish. This includes access to my online styling service, as well as my fully stocked client closet. I hold your hand throughout the process to make it easy and fun. No two sessions are the same, because they are truly unique to the people in them. 

As a mom of three, including a special needs child, I am also incredibly patient + can roll with meltdowns, spirited kids, bathroom breaks, and everything in between. 

Do you use a flash?

I mostly use natural light, but the flash is certainly my BFF when we need that extra pop. 

Where do sessions take place?

Sessions typically take place outdoors, in a client's home, or in another indoor space around Austin. I work with my clients to choose a location that I know photographs well and that also speaks to their personality and dynamic. 

How long will it take to receive my images?

All images have a 3 week turnaround time. You do have the option  to pay an extra fee for a 72 hour turnaround time if I have availability to do so.

What should we wear in our photos?

Once we book, I get you connected with my online styling service and schedule our styling session so you can browse my wardrobe. I'm also here to help answer any questions about specifics! 

I don't love the way I look in photos.

Trust me, neither do I. I do ask that you let me know about any specific insecurities that you have prior to our shoot, just so I'm aware. I also want you to think back to how much you treasure photos of your mother and grandmother in their youth – I know I do! Some of my favorite family photos are ones of my mom holding me and interacting with me when I was little. Just remember how much your kids love you, how beautiful you are, and that you deserve stunning images of your family – and so do your kids! I'm also good with angles and styling, both of which will help you look your best.  

I saw photos that I liked on Pinterest. Can we recreate them?

I love when clients show me a Pinterest board for inspiration. I just ask that you recognize that I am unable to copy the work of another artist, and that we are just using these boards as inspiration! 

Do you offer payment plans?

I strive to make sessions attainable by requiring a $250 retainer to hold your session, with the collections available for purchase upon gallery delivery. You are welcome to set up a payment plan to make smaller payments in this time frame – just let me know at booking! 

What if I don't want my images shared on your social media?

In my contract, I do have you sign a model release that gives me permission to share images on my website and social media. With that said, if you want to keep your images private, all you need to do is let me know at the time of booking. I have several options that I can chat with you about. 

Do you give digital files or prints?

Each collection comes with digital files and print credit so that you're able to select the prints and products YOU want the most. 

Do you offer mini sessions?

I do offer seasonal mini sessions on a very limited basis, known as Short Story Sessions. Subscribe to my newsletter to be the first to know when these are being released!

My house is too small/dark/cluttered.

First, please don't worry about any mess or clutter! As a mom of three (plus two dogs!), nobody understands more than I do. There is almost always a corner of natural light shining through your home, and I also have a flash if we need an extra pop. All I need is one good window. ;)
