WHERE ARE YOU BASED? I live in Scottsdale, AZ but I service all of the Phoenix Metro.
WHERE DO SESSIONS TAKE PLACE? Photo sessions take place at an outdoor location or the clients home (newborn sessions).
WHAT TYPE OF SESSIONS DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH? I specialize in family, kids, maternity and newborn. I love getting to know my clients, watching their kids grow and providing them with the photos to remember each phase of their life. Because I strive to capture pure images that can be treasured for years to come my shooting style is a mix of portrait and lifestyle photography. This is achieved by establishing semi-posed scenes and letting the clients interact with one another as I catch their candid exchanges.
WHAT'S YOUR STYLE? My style is clean and classic. I only use natural light for all my sessions and love working with my clients to capture their genuine laughter, love, playfulness and happiness. To me, a light, soft photo is not only easy on the eyes but timeless.
WHEN DO YOU SCHEDULE SESSIONS? Sessions are typically scheduled on the weekends at sunrise or an hour before sunset. These times of day have the best lighting and result in the best photos.
WHAT LOCATIONS DO YOU USE? I have suggestions for locations based on the style session you’re trying to achieve. Whether you’re interested in a more desert landscape, a green prairie grass field, a shaded mesquite tree wash or a wooded pond.
CAN I PRINT MY IMAGES MYSELF? Of course! All my sessions include hi-res, edited images and a print release all on a USB.
I WANT TO WORK WITH YOU! HOW DO I BOOK MY SESSION? Shoot me an email at to discuss and reserve a date/time. Once we determine a date/time and you send back the completed contract your session will be reserved.
HOW LONG DO SESSIONS LAST? Sessions typically last 45-60 minutes. Mini Sessions are roughly 20 minutes. Newborn sessions can last up to 2.5 hours. This includes setting up, getting baby to sleep, feeding breaks and photos.
WHAT DO I WEAR? Once your session is booked I will provide you with a photo session style guide. I like to provide my clients with this detailed education to give them the necessary guidance and insight in achieving the classically beautiful photos they’re seeking.
ARE PROPS INCLUDED IN THE SESSION? Yes, blankets, chairs, crates, etc. are all included in the session. If you see any specific props I’ve used in photos displayed on my site just let me know and I will be sure to bring them to your scheduled session.
WHAT HAPPENS IF THE WEATHER IS BAD? Luckily, the weather is pretty consistently gorgeous here in Arizona. If the blue skies are covered in clouds, that’s okay, we will still have our session. However, if it rains, or a monsoon is rolling through I will contact you as soon as possible to postpone or reschedule.
WHEN DO I GET TO SEE MY PHOTOS? A sneak peek of your photos will be posted to my blog within the first week after our session. Your USB with all of the final hi-res edited images as well as your mini books will be mailed USPS within two weeks of our session.
DO YOU OFFER ANY DISCOUNTS ON MILESTONE PACKAGES (I.E MATERNITY, NEWBORN, 6 MONTH, FIRST YEAR, ETC.)?
Yes! If you have a few specific milestone sessions in mind you’d like to capture let me know and I do offer discounts if multiple sessions are booked.
