what do i wear for my photos?
If you're a senior, you can read my blog post about that here! Another post for couples/engagement photos is in the works :) Until then, check out my Pinterest board for some inspiration here! I’ll also send you an email with advice for prepping for your session, and there’s an entire section in there with outfit tips.
It's also really helpful for me to see your outfits ahead of time when planning for your session so I can know what colors you'll be wearing and I can make sure all the locations coordinate. I love it when clients text or email me photos of all their outfits a couple of days before their session, so feel free to do that!
When will i receive my photos?
It can take me anywhere between 1-2 weeks to go through and edit the photos, depending on how many photos we took and what my schedule is. Weddings and some commercial shoots can take a bit longer.
How do i access my photos after the shoot?
After I am done editing all of your images, I will upload them to a private online gallery on my client proofing site. I will send you a link to your gallery with the password and download PIN number. All digital files are downloaded from this site, and all prints ordered through this site will be printed by a professional photo lab and shipped directly to the address you provide at checkout.
How do I book a session?
Fill out the contact form here that best fits the session you're interested in, and I'll get back to you with my pricing guide! Once you've read through the pricing guide and have decided on which collection you want to schedule, we will work out a date and time. To hold your spot, you'll pay 50% of the session fee as a non-refundable retainer and sign your contract (all this is taken care of online, so it's super easy!). The remaining 50% is due at the time of your session. I can't hold the session time for you until the retainer fee is paid and the contract is signed, so be sure you do that ASAP!
What do I need to bring with me to my session?
Please come with your hair and makeup done and ready to go. Also be sure to bring ways to touch up hair and makeup just in case it gets a little messed up due to the wind or sweat! Bring your extra outfit(s), including accessories, with you in the car. Make sure to put items that wrinkle easily on hangers so they look nice in your photos!
I'll send you an email about a week before your session with some more tips, so no need to stress about anything!
what camera equipment do you use?
I wrote a whole blog post on this that you can check out here!
How long have you been a photographer?
I got my first DSLR camera in 7th grade, but my pictures were pretty horrendous back then! I started improving when I got to high school, where I focused primarily on sports photography. Since coming to college, I've steered away from sports and have been shooting mainly portraits and couples. You can read more about my photography journey here.
Will you travel to take my pictures?
Sure! I charge a travel fee for locations outside a 25-mile radius from my house in Waco for portraits or a 60-mile radius for weddings. If you'd rather avoid the travel fee, I would LOVE for you to come to Waco! I can even give you some tips on where to grab coffee or food while you’re here :)
