asking

what clients are

do you offer minis

Not at this time.  Some locations are a bit of a drive.  We might as well use the time!   Some of my best images are snapped towards the end of the shoot after we've gotten to know each other a bit!

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR FOR MY SHOOT?

Styling is SO SO important!  In order to achieve the colorful look you see in my images, you have to wear the colors!  Think bold but not vibrant.  Stick to muted earth tones - rust, green, mustard yellow, chocolate brown.  I provide each client with style guide, online styling service, my amazon storefront picks, concept board, and 1:1 guidance. 

do you use props?

Very minimally!  For outdoor sessions - I bring a quilt for laying and snuggling shots.  For newborn sessions - I have a variety of wraps, headbands, baskets, and bonnets from my client closet to choose from!  We chat about this about 6 weeks before the date!

BUT THAT'S MY KIDS BEDTIME?

I typically find that kids and toddlers do fairly well with later shoots.  I give them ideas of adventure, we explore, and they typically find the evening as a fun night out.  Then pass out in the car on the way home.  You can never plan for kids to behave.  No matter the bribe!  I won't ask them to smile or pose.  I may make you play harder or cuddle more with them.

WHAT IF THERE'S BAD WEATHER?

Rescheduled sessions will only be for downpours and storms.  Sun or clouds we are still on!  I will be in contact with you via text the day of with updates.  Reschedule dates will be in the same week.

What location are we shooting at?

You'll get to choose what type of scenery you'd prefer - nature, woods, beach, barn, downtown, indoor etc.  We'll then coordinate the perfect spot for you.  All of my locations have been personally scouted by me for lighting, safety, and accessibility.  Final location details are sent 1 week before your session.

will you help me look good?

First off, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL as you are!  I will help you with angles, hair, and any lipstick on the teeth.  I only ask that you completely let go of any negative self-talk and show up ready to rock your session.

when should I book?

I would reach out as soon as you've decided to book a session.  Fall months are typically booked up 2 - 3 months in advance or as soon as my calendar opens for them.  Summer is limited because we travel a lot.  Definitely don't sit on this, I absolutely hate turning people away!

Who do you typically shoot?

Families, couples, maternity, and lifestyle newborns!

Do you travel?

Yes!  For locations 30 miles outside of 48093, there is a mileage charge of .59 cents per mile.  Travel out of state requires flight, car rental + 1 nights stay in addition to session fee.
