Where are you based?
Bradenton/Lakewood Ranch, FL, however I also service Sarasota as well.
What types of sessions do you photograph?
I photograph families, maternity, newborns, milestone baby sessions, headshots, and couple portrait sessions. My heart is really in motherhood and family photography. Weddings, and events are not sessions I currently accept.
What time will my session be?
If you are scheduled for an outdoor session, generally we will start an hour before the sun sets. The golden hour creates the magic lighting that really makes the photos sing. If you booked a newborn session, it will be in the morning-babies are generally more happy and more easily soothed in the morning.
What are my location options?
I have a number of different locations on my go-to list, including certain beaches. I really try and keep a nice list of locations that really photograph well. I will also happily discuss if you have a particular location I have never been to-but generally I do like to stick to spots I have tested so your photos turn out perfect!
Do I get to keep my digitals and print them myself?
Yes! All my sessions are all inclusive, and I don't sell products. I do however recommend you printing you digitals from a professional printer such as mpix.com
Do I need to bring my own props for my newborn or milestone session?
No! Not unless you have a special item in mind. I spend lots of time and money on handmade high quality made for newborn/milestone session photography props. I have a lot of options, and will discuss color palette with you before the session! If you want to do a cake smash or a particular theme-you can bring the cake and the props you would like.
How old will my baby be when we do the newborn session?
I prefer to wait until baby is at least 7 days old, and up to 3 weeks give or take. I would rather new mom's let their milk come in, and get settled in their routine with baby-I have found this is a lot less stressful and baby is less fussy.
How long will it take to get my photos?
A couple days after your session I will text some sneak peek edited photos from your session to give you an idea of how the photos turn out edited. After that, I will post a private gallery with all your unedited photos from the session where you will have the opportunity to pick your 15 photos that you would like me to edit. I really have found that most people want to see their photos and prefer to pick them themselves. If for some reason you prefer me to make your choices, that's totally fine too!
