Still have questions? Contact me below.
After you submit a message or book your session, I’ll reach out via email. We’ll meet or have a call to discuss your vision, location and wants.
I encourage people to try to relax the day of their session. If you can't find the time, tell silly stories in the car on the way there. If all else fails, turn up the radio and dance a little. These tiny moments of connection help make things magical.
You'll get your edited gallery in about 2-4 weeks. Pop some popcorn, pour some wine & get everyone to view the photos together. These are your team photos. Hopefully looking at your gallery sparks some moments of connection for the whole fam.
I. Do you take photos of extended families?
No, I don't. I've found that intimate moments are where I find the most joy in my work. I am always striving to say YES to what makes my heart beat hard and no to the things that make me hesitate.
II. Who picks the session location?
My mind is full of amazing spots for photographs in the KC metro area. When we talk about your session we'll decide together! I'll ask you if you have preferences and we'll match your ideas with a spot I have scouted before hand.
III. Do you take photos of pets?
Yes I sure do! My dogs join me in my own family photos and I love to extend this option to you--along with a few tried and true tricks & cautions ;)
IV. Do you edit out imperfections?
My typical editing flow includes taking away anything distracting to the eye (pimples, brusies, etc) . I am a big believer in loving our bodies the way they are. Photos are a great way to practice;) If you would like any further "beauty" edits they are available for $25 per image.
V. Do I have to pay upfront for my session in full?
Yes. All my fees are collected before the session to keep things simple for me and so we both respect each other's time and energy.
How long does it take to get my photos back?
My turn around time is typically 2 weeks but depending on my schedule it can take as long as 4 weeks. Editing takes longer than you think but I promise it's worth the wait! Make sure and book your session with this in mind.
Do you help with outfits?
I know this is the part that can seem overwhelming! At your consultation I can help answer questions and point you in a helpful direction.
If you want more hands on help shopping or pulling together a specific look, you can hire me to style your session from start to finish for $150.
Do you sell gift certificates?
Yes I sure do! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get you taken care of!
How do you handle reschedules?
The midwest weather is a tough thing to predict! I leave open space on my calendar so that if the weather is looking bad, we can compare calendars and come up with another hopefully sunny day.
I don't usually reschedule until the morning of--and even then--I've still been tricked by Missouri's fickle nature!
Do you ever teach photography classes?
Yes I do! I love teaching and talking about my one true love--photography! I typically do two classes per year--one for the mommas and the other for teenagers. Be on the look out or shoot me an email for more info.
