1. Where are you located?

I'm based out of Old Town Camarillo, CA. (Just 60 miles North of LA in Ventura County.)

2. Do you travel?

Absolutely! Traveling is something I love doing. I do require travel expenses be provided for projects and events more than 60 miles away from Camarillo. For out-of-state clients, travel fees most likely include a plane ticket (or two), a rental car, and hotel stay.

3. What should I wear to my session? 

I feel lucky to photograph ladies whose style inspires me, but I understand how daunting putting together looks can be. Make sure you plan a head of time to keep from feeling rushed and to ensure you're putting your best look forward. In general, wearing something you feel comfortable in and that's reflective of your personality is best. Need a little inspiration? Visit my ever evolving Pinterest board of outfits. I also will be more than happy to recommend ideas to you if you need help! 

4. Should I use a hair and make up artist for my session?

Yes! Having hair and makeup will make you look/feel amazing the day of shooting and enhance your overall session and final images!  I just ask that you be responsible for scheduling hair and make up times according to your schedule.

5. When do I pay you?

I take a 50% nonrefundable deposit for all portrait and engagement sessions. Please be prepared to give the remaining payment at the time of your session. I only accept installments for wedding packages.

6. What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

Since I want to make sure your entire photography experience is nothing less than perfect, here’s how the process will typically work:

01. Booking - If you want to book your session with me, click the BOOK ME tab above or shoot me an email and we'll start with availability and chatting about what you envision for your shoot. To officially book your session, I require a 50% nonrefundable deposit. Your final balance is due the day of the shoot, and I'm happy to accept payment by check, cash, Venmo, or Paypal!

02. Session planning - Once we have your session booked, we'll start planning the shoot soon. Brainstorming about location, timing, wardrobe, inspo, props, etc

03. Shoot day - Pure fun and joy :) 

04. Post shoot - Two weeks after your shoot, your final gallery with your best images professionally retouched and edited will be ready and sent to your inbox.

Please let me know if you have any questions about the process! I'm so happy to help!

7. How much does it cost to work with you?

Full portrait sessions, including newborn, seniors, lifestyle, maternity, and family sessions are $300.

I also offer mini sessions for $200. Please contact me to talk about building a custom collection to best fit your needs.

8. How do I book you for my wedding?

Click the CONTACT tab above and shoot me an email with all the fun details of your day. I will shoot you over a PDF with lots more info if I am available!

9. Do you have backup gear and liability insurance?

Yes! I always bring a back up camera and plenty of lens. If your venue needs proof of liability insurance, no problem. Just let me know and I'll shoot you over the COI needed!

10. What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have over 8 years experience and I received my undergraduate degree in Photography from Belmont University.

11. Can we print our own photos?

Of course!

12. Do we need to pay for the right to our images?

Never. You have full rights to your images and are free to share, print, archive and use any way you choose.
