Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Where do you operate?


A: I am based in The Woodlands, Texas and am willing to travel within a 20-mile radius from zip code 77382 at no additional charge. However, I would love to come to wherever you are for an additional travel fee. I love traveling, so let's chat! 


Q: What should I expect once we reserve a date for a session? 

A: Once the retainer fee is paid to reserve a date, I will hold virtual consultations to get to know you and better understand your vision for the shoot. This is very important to me. The more I can connect with you, the better the shoot will be. Detailed instructions on what to expect for your particular session will then be sent in a session planning guide so you are ready for the big day! All clients are also required to sign a Model Release form.


Q: Describe a typical session.

A: I am a natural light photographer who shoots on-location, so all outdoor sessions will take place during dawn and dusk to capitalize on the best lighting. I reserve the right to make the final determination for location, but I am open to suggestions if you have a special location in mind. Indoor sessions allow for more flexibility on timing. Windows, ambient light, and reflectors are used, as well as flash if needed. Expect to have lots of fun! I blend candid and posed looks, but really aim to capture those genuine moments and connections that you will treasure--so be yourself!

Q: What should I wear?

A: I realize this can be a stressful decision, and I want to make it as easy for you as possible! Check out my Pinterest board for some ideas. I'd love to be a sounding board for your potential wardrobe outfits, and if you're still stuck at the end, bring your top outfits to the shoot that day and we'll find the most flattering options.

Q: What do you recommend for makeup? 

A: I strongly recommend getting your makeup professionally done to polish off the session beautifully. It really does make a huge difference in the final product, and you will be happy you did! References are readily available. Alternatively, if you are doing it yourself, more is more! It will not look overdone, I promise! 

Q: When can we expect to view our proofs? 

A: The proofs will be uploaded to a private online gallery no later than 7-10 business days after the session date.
