Frequently Asked Questions
Where are you based and do you travel?
I am based in St. Clair Shores, Michigan (20 minutes north of Detroit), and yes! I'd love to travel to you! Some may require a travel fee, which you can inquire.
How do we contact you?
Head over to my "contact" tab and fill out all of your info! I will get back to within 48 hours. If you have not heard back from me, shoot me an email!
Where can I find pricing/ pacakges and other helpful info?
Head over to my "investment" tab and there you can find all of the packages I offer according to session. For a rundown from inquiry to the delivery of the final images, head over the the "experience" tab.
What do you require to book?
For booking sessions, I require a $50 nonrefundable retainer, as well as a contract signed - both can be taken care of online. If I do not receive both back within 48 hours, your date becomes available to the next in line.
For booking weddings, I require a consultation either by email or phone and 1/3 of the total packaging price, as well as a contract signed.
How do we check your availability/ dates?
Normally, you can find all my available dates for the upcoming months posted on my Facebook page, as well as my Instagram story. You can always shoot me an email or fill out the contact tab, and I will get back to you with available dates!
Do you offer studio sessions?
Studio sessions are only offered for cake smash and milestone sessions. Newborn sessions are done in home, where I bring my entire set up to you. All other sessions take place outdoors, on location.
Where do newborn sessions take place?
Newborn sessions are done in home for convenience and comfort for you and your baby. I bring my entire set up to you, as well as lighting if needed.
I have many outfits, wraps, and accessories for you to choose from as well, so no need to go shopping!
How are newborn sessions booked?
Newborn sessions are booked in advance to guarantee availability around your due date. It is best to reach out to me sooner rather than later, to guarantee that I have availability for you. I always recommend reaching out to me by your 2nd trimester.
Do you have locations in mind for our session?
Yes! About 1 to 2 weeks before your session, you will receive an email with location recommendations. From there, you will be able to choose the location that will best work for what you're looking for!
Do we get to pick our final images?
Of course! All sessions have a set amount of fully retouched images you will receive, based on the package you choose. You will get to choose the 10 - 30 images you'd wish to receive based on the package!
All Wedding packages offer a set amount of coverage time, so no worry about choosing your images! All good images will be delivered fully retouched for weddings!
How soon will receive our pictures?
1 - 2 weeks after your session, you can expect an email with proofs to choose your set amount of photos! You can expect the turnaround time to be about 2 - 4 weeks, depending on the time I photograph your story - once you have chosen your photos. For weddings, you can expect sneak peeks 24 - 48 hours after your wedding day! (can't make you wait too long) Final full galleries take about 6 to 8 weeks. Peak session aka summer + fall, a little bit more time.
Do you offer seasonal mini sessions?
Yes! I do offer seasonal mini sessions for fall and winter (Christmas).
Fall mini sessions are announced in September and occur in October. Winter (Christmas) mini sessions are announced in October and occur in November! I do occasionally announce other minis throughout the year - so keep tabs on my socials to hear about those!
