Contact me to tell me what you’re wanting + your desired date for your shoot[s]. I will get back to you within 24 hours with package options + details. You book your photo session + your image consultation. I will temporarily hold your date while you choose your photography package + send your non-refundable deposit to secure your date.
Prior to Photo Session //
Consultation where we discuss vision + aspirations + questions, etc. via telephone // skype // email. A great way to share your vision is by creating + sharing a private Pinterest board with me.
Sometimes, I do a few test shots during our consultation if we meet in person.
Show me where you plan on using these photos. For example, you might need a few horizontal images to fit across the top + bottom of a website and square images for your about page. Or you might need a holiday card or invite printed.
Photo Session Experience //
I am a natural light photographer [because I use film alongside digital]. I typically shoot during the golden hours of the day; the first few + last few hours of daylight. Since I shoot half of my sessions with film, I prefer some of the shoot to be done outdoors.
Relax + be confident that your photos are going to be beautiful. I will offer gentle direction, so I capture the most attractive angles + composition.
I have hair + makeup + styling upon request.
2-3 weeks following your Photo Session //
We will have an image consultation [in person or via google screenshare] where we’ll go over print options for your photos.
You will also receive access to your online gallery with password protection where you can view + order prints. You can share your online gallery with whomever you choose, and they too can order prints.
4-6 weeks following your Photo Session //
I mail out your print order + flash drive of edited images in low resolution format for web.
Photography is art. My preferred medium is [tangible] print! All too often, people take professional photos + then store [lose] their photos in the digital graveyard, never printing them. I charge less than typical photographers for the photo session + hope you spend your dollars on prints to treasure forever! Following each session, I include an image consultation where we go over your final edits + a print credit.
When choosing a location for your photo shoot, think creatively + celebratory! Choose a location where you feel in your element. I have a journalistic style to my photography + prefer the shoot to look organic.
Still looking for inspiration for your shoot?? Check out some of my own favorites on my website or my photography board on Pinterest. If you don’t have any inspiration, no worries at all. You can relax + let me do my thing, you will love your photos either way. My photography is very organic + unique because of the in the moment style my images have.
When choosing outfits + props, also think creatively + celebratory + colorful. Bright + Bold Colors photograph well! Props can be fun + as simple as two yellow balloons in a field of flowers or as intricate as a rented airstream trailer with vintage glassware + pieces all the same color scheme. Don’t be afraid to ask for styling + location advice.
Bad weather on the day of your photo shoot?? No worries! Either keep your original date + add some fun props to your rainy-day-shoot like rain boots + an umbrella. I pride myself in shooting with an organic style, so weather is another element I love to catch! It will only make your session more unique + romantic! You may also simply reschedule if you’d like.
Do I travel?! Yes I do travel! Often! Unless there is a special circumstance, my travel fee for overnight is 1k. If it’s doable in one day, my travel fee is 300. If I am in Oklahoma at the time, it’s $100 travel fee for my Tulsa + Dallas clients. I’ve also had clients gather a group of people desiring a shoot with me + split my travel fee between the group.
As for my editing process, I do minor edits in photoshop. I have a commitment to keeping my photography as organic as possible. I pride myself in my ability to capture the most attractive angles + lighting + composition right out of my camera with little edits needed. Therefore, I want my clients to be aware that I will not be shaving 20 pounds off of anyone or opening anyone’s eyes. I do not give clients original files, under any circumstance. I shoot in RAW, and the files are not even readable in their original format on most computers.
RUSH option on edits. $200 for 2-day rush. // $300 for 1 week rush on wedding photos. [Typical turn-around for wedding edits is 6-8 weeks].
