About 1-2 weeks following your session I will upload your images to a custom online gallery where you can download them straight to your computer or smartphone! You may also order custom products on this gallery in the comfort of your home!

Most sessions usually last 1 to 3 hours giving us plenty of time to fit in the outfits you bring to your session for the collection that you choose!

what if there is bad weather on the day of my shoot?

Don’t worry, I always leave days open during the week for reschedules. I will notify you asap if I do have to reschedule, however I usually only reschedule if there is either a 50% or higher chance of rain. If it’s overcast don’t worry your pictures will still look amazing and my clients love cloudy days!

what should I wear?

No worries because my clients receive a What to Wear Guide that they use ALL THE TIME even after their photoshoot!! This is an online guide that lets you know which colors work best for your skin tone and what types of outfits look best for your body type. Everything is catered to you to make the most out of your photoshoot!

Where do i change my clothes?

We travel from location to location and why change in your car? I have a pop-up changing station where you can easily change in and out of your outfits during your session privately. Gotcha covered.. literally!

Can i see your products before i order?

I would never allow you to order anything without having you see, touch, and hold exactly what you will be ordering from me. I bring my products to your session so you can see everything you are interested in purchasing! You may take photos and I can even send you mock-ups of how the products will look like in your home!
