Where are you located?
I'm based in Spokane, WA, but I am available for travel!
Do you travel?
Oh heck yes I do! I have loved traveling the world my entire life and have no plans on stopping any time soon. Email me and we can chat about travel + destination costs!
Are we a good fit for each other?
Are you adventurous and ready to explore? Are you down with possibly going on a short hike or getting a little messy? Do you enjoy the simple moments in life and don't take yourself to seriously? Do you value the real, authentic moments of life -- the laugher, the tears and everything in between over posed perfection? Then yes! We will be a great fit! The clients who fit me best (and vice versa) value love, life and embrace their own unique personalities. They trust me and my vision for them as well as understand that photography is an investment made now for their future and beyond.
How far in advance should I book with you?
Sooner is always better! I'm always taking clients so if you have your heart set on a specific date, let's get that locked down asap so it can all be yours! I prefer sessions to be booked at a minimum of 3-4 weeks out locally and 1-2 months anywhere else, but if your date is available when you inquire then that date can be yours!
How do i book with you?
You can contact me through email or through the contact form on my website! We'll chat details and make sure we have the perfect session set up for you! I also will require a signed contract and a 50% non-refundable retainer fee prior to our session.
Do you edit all the images we will receive?
Yup! I hand edit each individual myself to get the desired and cohesive overall look! In the end you will receive a mixture of color and black + white images.
How / when will we receive the images?
Depending on my workload, you will get a email 6-8 weeks after your session that will contain a unique, password protected link to your online gallery where you can access all of your images in high-resolution! You will be able to download them and/or share them with friends and family from there.
Can I share the images that you give me?
Yes, of course! You will have have shared rights to the images and will be allowed to use them how you choose. I just ask that you tag and credit me in any images that you do use online or on social media and that you do not under any circumstances, crop, edit, or add filters of any kind to the final images.
Help! What do i wear?
Be yourself! For all sessions, I recommend wearing something primarily comfortable because we will be moving around a lot and it will help to accentuate your style and personality. Avoid mixing patterns, words, logos, and anything neon. I also recommend bringing TWO outfits - one casual and one on the more formal side.
When you book with me, I'll give you ALL the details on what you should / shouldn't wear so you'll be 100% comfortable and confident walking into our session! If you have questions or need more help in this area, I'll be more than happy to design a Pinterest inspiration board unique for you. I'll be also be asking you to send me images of your outfits in advance to make sure that we will get the most successful images together and in the planned venue/environment!
I have some props, can I bring them?
Yes! Ultimately I like to primarily focus on your surroundings and on whatever is in the environment around us, but if you have certain props you'd really want to use, you are more than welcome to bring them! Just give me a heads up of what they are ahead of time so I can plan on how we can create the most successful images for you! :)
I booked you for my engagement session. can i book you for my wedding too?
Abso-freakin-lutely! Let's do it! Engagement shoots are complimentary when you book your wedding with me also. So let me know in advance and let's make some magic happen!
What is your retainer and refund policy?
As stated in the contract you would sign, there is a 50% non-refundable down-payment (retainer) to reserve your session. The complete payment will be due no later than 7-14 days before the contracted session date. If the final payment is not received at this time, a 5% penalty on the outstanding balance will incur. There are no refunds on any packages unless otherwise stated in the contract.
