Where are you located?
I am in the beautiful Austin, Texas area (Round Rock specifically!)
How far in advance should we schedule our session?
The sooner the better!
Weekends fill up especially quickly, especially in the spring and fall; the sooner you reach out, the more likely your desired date is still available!
What is lifestyle photography?
Lifestyle photography is a style of photography with a goal to capture real-life situations and moments in an artistic manner. The purpose of this style of photography is to share people’s stories through candid images.
I combine standard portraiture with lifestyle photography, guiding my clients and their families every step of the way through fun prompts and games for the kids!
When and where are sessions typically held?
I typically schedule my outdoor sessions during "golden hour" when the light is best (and most flattering)! Trust me, you'll thank me later!
Once we've set a date for our shoot, I will send over a questionnaire where you can pick from several great settings in the area for us to meet.
Do you offer extended family/large group sessions?
Absolutely! Extended family sessions are always so special and one of my personal favorites to photograph. Up to seven individuals are included in the base price; an additional fee of $25 per person will apply to groups greater than seven.
How long is the typical wait to get my photos back?
Sneak peak: 48 hours
Full gallery: 3 weeks
Do you pose newborn babies?
I don't typically pose newborns. My approach to newborn photography is more of a natural, candid, documentary style and less "posed."
Can I rush order my final gallery for an additional fee?
Yes, 5 day expedited processing can be added on to your package for 20% of your package fee.
Do I have to order prints through you?
No, you are welcome to print anywhere you'd like! However, I will caution that many printers do not print true to the color calibration created with your image. Because of this, I can only guarantee quality of prints from my "store," which is conveniently connected to your online gallery and fulfilled by a professional lab.
Whatever you decide, please, please, please print your photos! They are meant to be enjoyed and cherished by the entire family for years to come, and simply won't be if they're just sitting on a computer or phone (speaking from my own personal experience!!)
I am so awkward in front of the camera! What do I do with my hands?! Will you tell me how to pose?
I've got you, friend!! I've taken an extensive course on posing and feel very confident in my posing "system." I'll gently guide and direct you and your family through prompts while still allowing you to show your true personality AND look your very best. This formula helps me create beautiful, authentic images that effortlessly feel like you.
What should I wear?
Soft pastels and light/neutral shades of clothing photograph best with my light and airy photography style and always look timeless. By avoiding very bold, dark, or distracting shades, the focus stays on my beautiful subjects and makes them shine even brighter (which is always my #1 goal!)
After booking your session, be sure to ask about my complimentary client closet and style guides! I've put together family, engagement, and senior style guides that are chock-full of great tips in planning for your session. I'm here for you every step of the way!
