Do you just take headshots? Of course not. I’m a portrait and lifestyle photographer. That means I create custom photographs for your blog, website, social media platforms or LinkedIn profile. I also shoot events from time to time. So if you have a business event that you want to be captured as a part of your brand, I’m able to do that too.

How far in advance should I book you? I recommend that you book me at least 1-2 months in advance of when you think you’ll need your new photographs. Of course if you’ve got a rushed deadline, please feel free to email me so I can see if there’s a way to fit you in my schedule.

What do I need to bring to my photo shoot? It’s a good idea to bring all of your outfits, accessories, and your handsome/beautiful face! I generally recommend you to bring at least 5 outfits, that way you have options to choose from.

How many “looks” or wardrobe changes do I get? You’re guaranteed 3 looks during your head shot session, more for lifestyle shoots. I do my best to give you as much variety as possible during your shoot.

What if I want to be personally styled, do you offer that? I do! I  have an amazing fashion stylist on hand that will love to style you for your shoot. If you opt to have a stylist style you, the fee for her services will be added to your photography session if this is the case.

How long will my photo shoot take?  Head shot sessions usually take 1-2 hours. However, I also offer half day and full day lifestyle portrait sessions. That being said, I keep working until I get the shots I want and you feel confident that we’ve achieved everything you’re looking for.

How soon after the shoot do I get my online proofs? Approximately two weeks.

How many images do I get? For the business head shot package, you get three head shots. For the lifestyle standard package, you get 10 images. For the lifestyle deluxe package, you get 20 images. In the case where you see more images that you love than what’s offered in your chosen package, I do offer additional photos for purchase for $40/photo for extra images.

What’s your cancellation policy? I am happy to reschedule your shoot IF I have at least 48 hour notice. I do take a non-refundable deposit fee in advance of the shoot.

How do I pay for my photo session? You pay a deposit to book your spot and pay the remaining fee prior to your photo session. Right now, I only accept cash until further notice.
