Have Questions?

I love to capture raw emotion and in-between moments, so it’s very rare that I ever overly pose my clients. My approach will typically involve a lot of motion, a lot of snuggling, and a lot of you just being…you. It’s basically us just hanging out, only I have a camera and get realllyyyyy in your space. My editing style is difficult to describe, but the closest I can get is “warm and moody.” Really, the best way to see what I mean is to check out my portfolio or take a peek at my Instagram and/or FB

I’m so glad you asked…. HECK YES I DO!! My bags are always packed and IMO, you can never have too many stamps in your passport!

Now that we’re on the subject of editing, please know that I will never, ever edit a photo in a way that takes away from you as a unique, authentic human being. Yes, I will take care of some blemishes, acne, coloration, maybe a stray hair or two. However, I do not believe in altering the appearance of an individual beyond those smaller changes. There is no one in the world who is just like you, WHY would we try to change that?!

Shoot me an email or give me a call!! Once we set up a date I will send you a booking link to your contract and invoice. A 30% deposit fee is required to reserve the date of your session/event. Once you send me the signed contract and the deposit, I will pencil you in! WOOHOO!! That was easy! 

So here’s the rundown, so maybe you’ve had your photos taken & maybe you haven’t. Either way all photographers are different. The approach I take on my sessions is to have a good time, get to know you. Most likely laughing, dancing, maybe some corny jokes…?  With every session I give my clients prompts that don’t leave you wondering what you should be doing or questioning if you should be smiling or not. My approach is authentic + organic storytelling to best capture your unique connection.

I always tell my clients to dress in something that they are 100% comfortable in. What you wear is really up to you. I usually suggest wearing something they’ll look back on in 10-20 years and STILL love. Neutral earth tones are great especially with my editing style! This would probably be my biggest recommendation. The colours you choose to wear can completely change the look of your photos. I would also say to limit the printed patterns, but accessorize!! Keep it simple, maybe throw a scarf on, jewelry, your fav jacket/sweater, your fav shoes! Or no shoes! This is a personal fav of mine! It gives such a natural and organic feel to the photos. (just maybe don’t try this in the winter months, lol)

Ultimately it really just depends on the look you want to create for your session! A long flowy dress or cardigan is always great! The more movement in your photos the better. This will bring so much more life to your images. 

Still a little lost? Don’t stress, I got you! I send out my complimentary “What to Wear Guide” after you’re all booked in to help with this. I also have an extensive Client Closet available to my clients absolutely free. This includes many dresses and bump friendly gowns as well some children’s items. 

Okidokie, so now that we’re bff’s, lets get down to the nitty gritty…After our session, I will send you a couple of sneak peeks within 48 hours.. After I begin to edit the rest of your photos and create your gallery!!
Lifestyle sessions will be delivered within 1-3 weeks. Please allow 6-10 weeks for weddings & elopements.

You will receive your high resolution digital images in an online gallery which you will be able to download, share + print. If you love your photos, please be sure to tag me and leave kind words on my social media pages.
