Do you use flash?
No, I only use natural light for lifestyle sessions. I do use flash for real estate photography.
How long will it take to receive my images?
All images are delivered within 2 weeks after the session end date.
Where do sessions take place?
This is a great question. The two main places that sessions occur are in a client's home or outdoors. I am happy to provide suggestions for location, as well.
What If i'm not photogenic?
Do you know the funniest part about this statement? I can relate on a personal level so much, because I'm always the one begging my kids and friends not to post pictures of me! Let me assure you that not only are you beautiful, but I have many tactics that I'll use to help capture images you will love. I also have a fabulous team of professionals that I work with upon request to help you feel pampered and confident on the day of our shoot.
What should we wear in our photos?
Before every photo shoot, I send clients my session preparation guide that outlines tips for clothing, skincare, and make-up. I also provide wardrobe styling, hair styling, and make-up by a team of professionals for an additional fee.
What happens if we have bad weather?
Isn't Texas weather crazy? One minute it's sunny and gorgeous, and the next – it's a down pour, or even a snow storm! If the weather is not cooperative, I am always able to reschedule your session for the same month it was booked. For example, if you were scheduled for a January session and the weather wasn't cooperative, I would reschedule you for another day in January that worked for you. There is no fee to reschedule a session due to rain or snow.
What if my kids aren't cooperative?
As a mom of three, I have truly seen and experienced it all. I absolutely love getting to know children and am very friendly, outgoing, and patient. There is no such thing as a perfect session full of smiling moments with kids, and that's totally ok. I always strive to capture the unique personality of your child, which includes all the amazing quirks and details – from the tears and scowls to the giggles and smiles. By making the photo shoot into a game and getting down on the kids' levels, I am often able to capture those amazing moments regardless.
I saw photos that I liked on Pinterest. Can we recreate them?
I love me some Pinterest! I love when clients send Pinterest boards to me for inspiration. As photographers, we all have our unique styles. Though I don't think it would do our session justice to completely recreate someone else's images, I am absolutely on board with us using them for some inspiration!
Can I keep the images from my session private?
All clients sign an optional model release before the session. If you would prefer to keep your images private and off of social media, you may indicate your request at that time. For clients who choose to decline the model release, I absolutely respect your decision and will keep your images private.
Do you give digital files or prints?
Both! I deliver digital files to your email, with professional prints also available!
My house is too small/dark/cluttered.
First, please don't worry about any mess or clutter! As a mom of three (plus a dog!), nobody understands more than I do. There is always a dreamy corner of natural light that we can work with. I assure you that your home is perfect and will work great for our session.
I'm ready to book/i sent an inquiry. Now what?
I'm so excited to work with you! Please contact me below to book your session. I require a 50% deposit due upon booking to reserve your date, with the balance due 48 hours before your session. I also ask clients to fill out a short form so I can get to know you and what you're hoping to get out of your session.
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!
How would you describe your photography style?
I love authentic moments filled with natural light and genuine emotion. I love golden sunshine and earthy, moody tones. Most of my photos are candid or lightly posed, meaning that I'll give you a little direction but capture the true moment that takes place thereafter. I consider myself a lifestyle photographer.
What makes you different?
There are many incredibly talented photographers here in Austin – you really can't go wrong! Here are a few things that speak to who I am and what makes me unique.
As a person and photographer, I am incredibly patient, flexible, and kind. If you have a vision for your session, I want to hear about it. As a mom of three, absolutely nothing phases me. I like to consider myself an easygoing person who rolls with anything, and that includes wardrobe changes, location hopping, toddler meltdowns, and everything in between.
I also aim to give my clients a truly professional and memorable experience from start to finish. I have partnered with a wardrobe stylist to give you personalized styling help for you or your family. I also work with a hair and make-up artist upon request! My team and I are here to pamper you and make you feel glamorous. I am also incredibly detail oriented and make sure that your session is unique to who you are and what you're seeking to capture you or your family's personality and vision.
