Where are you based and do you travel?
I am currently based in Woodland Hills, CA (about 20 miles for Los Angeles) and yes I love to travel! I mostly shoot locally around Los Angeles area and surrounding areas. I love exploring new places all over SoCal and traveling. However, if you want me to photograph your story, will require a travel fee, depending on where it takes place.
I'm not good in front of the camera. Can you help?
Absolutely! This is something I love to help with. I'll use prompts to guide you into having fun, being relaxed.
Images & Delivery
How do I get my photos?
I deliver all images via an online gallery because it's the fastest, simplest method and you'll have your photos forever. Within the gallery you'll have unlimited downloads for your high resolution (top quality) images.
Do I have the rights to the photos?
You will have a personal use and print release to be able to download, post, print, etc. as much as your heart desires! The only thing you can't do is sell the images. As the creator of the images I still have the rights to use the images I take on my website and social media to promote my services.
Do you give RAW (unedited) images?
Absolutely not. It's not a finished product. My post processing is half of my style and I want to be able to provide you a finished product, after all, this is what you're paying for. This is industry standard.
How many images do I get?
I don't put a limit on the amount of photos you'll receive, I simply choose the best ones. You can expect around 25 - 150 depending on how long the shoot is, if you have an outfit change, if you include your partner, or other members of your family. I believe in quality over quantity.
What is your turnaround time?
About 2-3 weeks for maternity and 3-4 weeks for a lifestyle. I also typically do a next day sneak peek and send a full blog within a week or two!
How far in advance should I reach out?
Engagement - If you want me to get you popping the question then when you have a date in mind let me know and we can start planning. If you already popped the question, as soon as you want so you you have a date in mind.
Maternity - Most reserve their date with me during their first trimester. I recommend reaching out as soon as you have your due date and know when you'll be about 28-36 weeks.
Birth / Fresh 48 / Newborn - It's best to do this once you have your due date, this way I'm block out time for you two weeks before or two weeks after your due date. Fresh 48 is to be done within the first 48 hours after your baby is born and newborn should been done with the first 2 weeks so we can get those tiny fingers and toes.
Do you have payment plans?
Of course! Once you pay the $150 retainer to reserve your date, the remaining balance will be broken into weekly/monthly installments, the last being a week before your date. You can set the payment to auto-pay so that you don't have to think about it and manually do it each time. However, if you'd prefer a custom payment schedule or to pay in full I offer that option as well.
How do I book?
First things first, fill out the contact form so I can make sure I have your date available. I'll then get in touch to set up a call or meeting to ensure we're a good fit for each other.
I'll get over my different collections and help you figure out which one is best for you, or I'll make a custom collection for you. Once you're ready to move forward, I'll send an online proposal to you which had the payment plan and agreement. Once you sign the agreement and pay the $150 retainer you'll officially be part of the fam!
What if I need to cancel/reschedule?
In the unfortunate scenario that for some reason you have to cancel your maternity shoot, I retain the non-refundable retainer fee. If you need to reschedule, I have a $100 rescheduling fee.
