HOW DO I KNOW IF WE’RE A GOOD FIT?
My client is not everybody and I'm okay with that! It's important that we "get one another" and jive well together. If you're looking for perfectly posed photos, I'm probably not your girl. My ideal clients is creative, laid back, a little silly and open-minded. Together we take a few risks, laugh a lot and sometimes even share some tears. Why? Because that's real life. And I'm all about real. So are my clients!
I do my best to offer a variety of options that can fit into most families budgets. There is always a session fee, which covers my time with you at your shoot, my creative skills, backing up, storing and editing your images. You then come to my studio, typically 2 weeks later to view your photos and choose what you'd like to purchase. I have popular Collections or you may choose to build your own form the A La Carte menu. Digital Collections are available for purchase as well. If you'd like to have a look at my Investment Menu, use the contact form to schedule a visit to the studio. We can share a glass of wine and I'll answer any questions you may have.
WHAT SHOULD MY SESSION BE LIKE?
I like to keep things genuine. Organic. Real. I encourage you to pick an activity or two you'd like to do with your kids to keep you moving and interacting in an authentic way. We'll probably chat a bit, I'll get to know you and your kids and I'll document as we go. While I always take some time for posed shots, it's the in-between moments that are my favorite. Whether it's a fit of giggle or a classic kid meltdown, I'll be there to document it in the realist of ways. And you might be surprised by how much you cherish those in-between moments the most.
BUT MY KIDS WON’T SIT STILL…
I have yet to come across a kid who will. Kids should be kids. I have them, so I totally get it! I try to keep you guys moving throughout your session. I encourage breaks. If you are willing to go with the flow, your session will be awesome. Your kid's quirks will shine through and make your session so uniquely you. Embrace it!
WHERE WILL MY SESSION TAKE PLACE?
You choose! On location sessions are super popular - parks, fields and farms are common choices. My personal favorite will always be in-home sessions. I believe they are very uniquely you and allow you to be comfortable and genuine in front of the camera. Lifestyle newborn sessions typically take place in your home. I photograph you and your baby as you are. No beanbags. No props. No crazy poses. I simple document you and your new family in your home and in your element. My natural-light studio is also a great option if the weather is a drag or your home is out of the question. There is a travel fee for locations outside of a twenty mile radius of Carrollton, Ga.
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?
A lot of photographers like to provide styling guides to their clients. I'm not one of them. While I love a pleasing color palette, I've found though my style of photography that what my subjects are wearing doesn't stand out quite like the connection that they share with one another does. My hope and goal is always that what you're wearing will be the LAST thing anyone notices about your photos. But with that said, I like to provide a couple general guidelines that prove to be helpful;.. Stay away from logos and text, it can be distracting. Additionally, look around your home at how you decorate and what colors you use. Your photos are going to be heirloom pieces that you display on your walls. Consider using your decorating style as inspiration for colors and outfit choices.
WHEN CAN I SEE MY IMAGES?
Around two weeks after your photography session, you'll come to my studio for your "Reveal and Ordering Session." This is always my favorite part and I'm willing to bet it'll be your favorite too! You'll get to view all your images, both in print and digital format. Together, we'll decide what would be the best options for you. I suggest leaving the little ones with a sitter for this portion. You'll really want to study the images, talk through your options and maybe enjoy a glass of wine through the process.
WHEN WILL MY PURCHASED PHOTOS BE READY?
Digital downloads are available within 3 days of purchase. Most print products are available for pick up within 2 weeks of your Ordering Session. (Albums are available for pick up within 2 weeks of Final Album approval by client.)
WHAT HAPPENS IF THE WEATHER IS BAD ON OUR SCHEDULED SESSION DATE?
I try to keep a number of backup dates open each month in case of bad weather and there is no fee to reschedule to a new date if it's raining or too overcast. Georgia weather can be unpredictable, so I typically wait to call off a session until the morning of your session (or the night before Sunrise Session).
DO YOU SHOOT WEDDINGS?
I am not accepting any new wedding bookings at this time.
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
The studio is located in the historic district of Carrollton, Ga on Adamson Square. It's located directly above The Pita Pit, which is next door to Samba Loca.
Feel free to contact me if you have any other questions. I'm here all along the way and I'm happy to help!
