HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE MY PHOTOS?
Turn around time for editing is from 2-3 weeks from time of your session. I do start to send sneak peeks as soon as I can as I just can’t help myself.
WHAT TIME OF DAY IS BEST FOR OUTDOOR PHOTOGRAPHY?
The best time for that golden hour glow is one hour away from sunset. Check the sunset time on your session date.
HOW MANY PHOTOS DO I RECEIVE?
Depending on the session package you choose you can can receive anywhere from 30 .. to a whole lot. But truly its quality over quantity.
DO I GET TO PICK MY OWN IMAGES?
Part of my role is making the best image selections and choosing what tells your story the best. I do not delivery any blurry , unflattering , or repetitive images.
CAN I GET THE RAW / NON EDITED PHOTOS?
The short answer is no.
HOW DO I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS?
I deliver all my photos via online gallery to download as you please.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
My style of photography is focused on documenting the meaningful moments of life. I’m a lover of natural light and warm tones. I strive to capture a glimpse of a family’s real love story.
HOW DO YOU EDIT YOUR PHOTOS?
All photos you received will be edited to the style you see on my galleries. All retouching is included in the price of the images that you receive. Color correction, background objects, ect. I’m also super body image confident – so please don’t ask me to move body parts around, tuck in a tummy, move a chin up. Thats just not what I do. If you are looking to have your photos edited further or more in detail I do use an associate editor that ranges from $20-$50 / photo for additional in depth edits. Please inquire.
WHAT DO I WEAR?
Keep is simple and basic is my motto. I’ve gathered some great wardrobe tips and ideas (below) to help out for the your photo session.
WHAT LOCATION OPTIONS ARE THERE IN ORANGE COUNTY?
We’re so lucky to have Orange County as our backdrop, from beaches to wilderness parks and even the desert. I’ve gathered some of the top spots in Orange County as recommended locations. Please contact me to be receive a list of location ideas.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DOING PHOTOGRAPHY?
I’ve been around photography for as long as I can remember. I started modeling at a young age and quickly grew fascinated with being “on set”. Lighting set ups, hair and make up, wardrobe – I loved how it all came together for one image. My hobby turned professional a few years back and I’ve been engulfed in the craft ever since. If you had to set a date of conception then circa 2015.
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
I shoot with a Canon 5d mark iv. My main lens is a 24-70mm but it all depends on the need for the session. From wide angle to macro – I’ll use what’s needed.
DO YOU TRAVEL OUTSIDE OF ORANGE COUNTY?
YASSSSSS I do! If you are in the Southern California area a travel fee ($50) applies for outside of Orange County. I have special pricing available for out of state sessions, so just reach out and I will be in touch with all of the details.
HOW FAR OUT SHOULD I BOOK A SESSION?
For booking any photo session, the sooner the better. If you have a particular date or season you are looking to capture please reach out right away. If you are expecting a newborn or looking to book a maternity session please see my Maternity FAQ’s and Newborn FAQ’s for best time to schedule these sessions.
Typically, I like to book 1 -2 months in advanced if possible, but I have been known to schedule the last minute session if I can squeeze you in!
If this doesn’t align with your plans, always reach out just in case there’s an opening!
HOW DO I BOOK A SESSION?
Please fill out my booking form and I will be in contact as soon as possible.
Upon getting your inquiry, I will follow up with more pricing and session details. All sessions require a non-refundable deposit. If the session is cancelled or rescheduled within a reasonable timeframe, the deposit can be applied towards a future session. If you need to cancel a session once it is booked, please do so as soon as possible to open that date for another client.
DO YOU OFFER DISCOUNTS?
I am willing to work with you on your budget, but please be patient and understanding. I have set my pricing based on many factors, but try to keep in mind client abilities.
WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCLE OR RESCHEDULE?
It totally happens ! You are able to cancel / reschedule at any time. However, the retainer is non-refundable. I’m defintely not trying to be the bad guy, but since I block off the date of your session/elopement to save it for you, it means I had to say no to other clients.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER A SESSION?
RELAX – your part is over. Whoop whoop! Now the editing begins!
After your session, I will be working hard behind the scenes to cull the best photos (eliminating duplicates, blurs, and blinks) Your gallery is typically ready within 2 – 3 weeks of your session.
Sneak Peeks – After your session, I will most likely post a few sneak peeks of your images on my Instagram if you allow me to do so. Sneak peeks can be really fun for the client (and the Artist) but please remember that they are offered as a courtesy and may take a bit of time.
Check out printing options. Look online (such as the Pinterest) for ideas about wall gallery displays. There are tons of beautiful ideas for every style and budget. In your online gallery, you can conveniently download your images for high quality prints, framed photos, and canvases,
