Chase Your Dreams.
Let's craft images together that make you swoon.
There is no "standard" photograph in my world. Each portrait session is as unique as the person I am tasked with portraying.
Have you dreamt of a steamy couples portrait session? A boudoir shoot with your beloved horse? A fantastical and glamorous Elf photography sitting? The sky is the limit, but you can read about my styles here.
We will work together to create the shoot of your dreams. I work with amazing makeup artists and hair stylists, have a studio but am also happy to shoot on location, and I can't wait to hear from you.

HOW PORTRAIT SESSIONS WORK
>> Before we shoot, we discuss your vision: Where do you want to shoot? What is your goal? What is your aesthetic? We decide on a date and location.
>> You put a 50% non-refundable deposit down to secure your date. These are non-refundable, but are transferrable if you need to reschedule.
>> Basic portrait and boudoir sessions with one outfit last roughly 60-85 minutes. I provide you with direction and posing, managing light and choosing flattering angles.
>> We part ways, and I go home to cull images and edit them. I upload them and send you your link within 5 business days.
WHAT YOU RECEIVE
>> You will receive a link from Pixieset (the gallery service I use) with a download PIN.
>> You use the PIN to download your high-resolution images.
>> A standard portrait session will provide you with 25-40 highly polished images.
>> You are welcome to order prints from my professional print shop, but by no means are you obligated to print through me; That is why I provide you with high-resolution images, as you can print them anywhere you choose!
All portrait sittings begin at $350 with one outfit
>> Makeup & Hair additional cost & by request
>> Mileage applies beyond 25 miles
>> Additional cost for location rental if required
All commercial work begins at $500. Please contact me for a quote specific to your needs!
