Can we receive the digital files from our session? Yes, there is always the option to purchase the edited, high resolution digital files. I actually encourage it! Most sessions are somewhat of a story or puzzle and I’d like you to have all of the pieces. That being said, there is also something amazing about the tangible. I want you to have beautiful prints, canvases and albums that you can hold in your hands and pass down to future generations too, not just a bunch of files on your computer.
What do you mean by “edited high resolution files”? It means I go through the images, choose the best from the session and make some adjustments so they look clean, timeless and most importantly like YOU. High resolution means you will be able to print the images at whatever size you desire and the quality will not be compromised.
Where will the session take place? I love photographing families in their homes because I think it adds another layer to the images. I love to capture who you are, in your environment. If you’d prefer to have a session outdoors, I can do that too! We can have the session somewhere that holds meaning for you or we can decide on a beautiful location together.
Do you have a studio? What do you do for newborn sessions? No, I do not have a studio. All newborn sessions are done in the comfort of your own home.
How long do sessions last? Family and engagement sessions typically last 1-2 hours. Newborn sessions are usually 2-3 hours to ensure time for feedings and cuddles when needed.
There are so many photographers out there, what makes you special? I would say it is a combination of a few different things. I have a very kind demeanor that will make you feel comfortable and able to relax whether it is your wedding day or I am holding your newborn child. I want you to enjoy your session, so I keep it very low stress. Also, my style is a combination of portrait and lifestyle. This means I may guide you into certain poses and at other times, I will simply document as things unfold. And finally, I have education and experience. I have my Bachelor of Journalism, emphasis in photojournalism, from the University of Missouri and I continue my education through workshops and conferences for photographers. I know choosing a photographer can be overwhelming, so let’s get in touch and you can figure out if we’re a good fit!
