What are your At Home and Our Adventure family sessions?
My family sessions are designed around just having fun and capturing your family in a place that reflects your lives together; whether it be an afternoon spent at home, kicking it on the couch together, making pancakes and snuggling or out on the town, hitting up the farmers market or going for an adventure filled hike. Theses sessions are designed to capture your family being who you are together. My goal is to capture pure, authentic imagery that reflect your beautiful life. Just let me know what types of locations you love and we can plan an afternoon of exploration – or a cozy afternoon in. They can last up to 3 hours depending on what we decide to do.
Tell me about your newborn sessions?
Newborn sessions usually take place in the client’s home within 10 days of birth. I recommend no later than 10 days to insure the little one is still curling up and sleeping a bunch. These sessions, much like my At Home sessions, are designed around capturing you with your new baby in a very natural, comfortable place.
How long do sessions last?
1-2 hours for engagements and up to 3 hours for At Home and Our Adventure sessions. Mini-Sessions are also available and those last 30 minutes.
What should we wear?
Wearing outfits that go together but aren’t too matchy matchy is key. Never wear all white or all black. Mixing vibrant, fun colors and patterns is fantastic as well as adding in fun accessories that make a statement. Most importantly, dress to your style! It’s about you. You should wear what makes you feel amazing.
What’s included in your sessions?
At Home and Our Adventure sessions allow for up to 6 people at a location of your choice in the Austin, TX area. I am also available for travel to other cities with you on an adventure although travel fees will apply. A private online gallery is included along with approximately 50 artfully images to choose from. My galleries are available for 2 weeks for you to place your print order. Please inquire for a full list of collection options!
How does your booking process work?
In order to book, I require a signed contract and a booking fee of $200 (which will be applied towards your chosen collection). The balance + sales tax is due at your session.
How would you describe your style?
My style is artistic, playful and most of all, completely honest. My goal when capturing your wedding day is to be a fly on the wall, capturing all of the beautiful moments as they unfold without being in any way obtrusive. During the portrait sessions of the day, I will be a total dork, and I can guarantee I will get you giggling. I strive to make sure my couples feel comfortable around me so that they can be completely themselves in front of my lens.
What’s included in your collections?
My collections include a USB drive of your artfully enhanced images and a second photographer.
Other options include additional coverage time, a portrait session, press-printed and leather bound albums, keepsake boxes, heirloom prints, and canvas wall portraits.
What is the 'first look' and do you recommend it?
The “first look” is a staged moment for the bride and groom to see each other before the ceremony. It’s a wonderful opportunity to capture those amazing emotions you two feel after seeing each other for the first time. On top of that, you get to have a quiet moment together before it all begins. It’s also great because it gives us the opportunity to complete most of the portraits before the ceremony so that you get to enjoy your cocktail hour!
How do I reserve my date?
In order to reserve your date with me I require a 50% retainer and a signed contract. The remaining balance is due 30 days before your wedding.
What do I expect after the wedding?
Your private online gallery is made available approximately 8 weeks after your wedding. Your USB of approximately 600 artfully enhanced images will be delivered to you shortly after.
Albums usually take approximately 4-6 weeks to design and approximately 6-8 weeks for print.
Do you travel for weddings? If so, what are the costs?
Yes! I have photographed weddings in India, Mexico and all around the U.S., so needless to say, I am always open to travel! And LOVE it. I do offer special rates for destination weddings. Airfare and two nights of hotel stay are charged for all destination weddings.
