get on the calendar

shoot the session

prints + Products

First things first, let's make sure we're a good fit! We'll do a quick zoom or coffee/beer meetup to chat so we can get over the stranger vibes and talk about all the details.

Then after a deposit and signed contract are received, you've got dibs on any available date!

We'll have a general plan set out for the day that we'll have discussed before the shoot - schedule, location, outfits, specific shots, etc.

All you have to do is show up and have fun! Let's pop some champagne and do the dang thing!

You'll get access to your own online gallery with access to high-quality prints, albums, framed prints, and all kinds of goodies.

If you need help with other products like thank you cards, custom gift designs, and pretty much anything else, I've got your back.

The first step to making all of this happen is when we meet up and become bff's!

Each photoshoot is totally unique. So this is where you get to tell me how rad and custom you want yours to be. Want food trucks, confetti, marching bands, movie nights, funny costumes, or silly string fights? Cool! Let's make it happen! We can do this in person over coffee or a beer, or we can do a quick chat over Zoom.

You tell me your story, what your vibe and goals are, and what you hope to find in terms of overall experience here. I'll fill you in more about how I plan to make these things come to life for you and we go over as much detail as we can. This initial meeting is so important because it gives me the ammo I need to totally blow your mind later! For less intricate shoots, like business headshots, this usually just requires a quick chat to collect the details. But for most anything else, please be prepared to fill out a quick questionnaire during our meetup before getting on the calendar.

It also gives us the chance to make sure we're a good fit. I mean it when I say I want you to be happy with not just your final deliverables, but with your experience as a whole. Sometimes that means that I'm not the right fit for you - which is okay because you deserve to work with someone that will give you the experience you're looking for. And as much as I'd like to please every single person, I've learned that's a hard target to hit every time, so no hard feelings.

Don't get me wrong, I could model you to the exact pose that makes you look the closest to a Kardashian's insta post as you can get. Suck in the tummy, twist this way, tilt your head that way, nose down...no a little more. Bring your chin down, now out, not that far. Ok now smile...smile more....MORE!

Ugh, it's exhausting for not only me, but even more-so for you. Trust me, I did that for years before working for myself, where I was able to trade analyzing tiny details in exchange for genuine expressions and capturing the real stuff. It was a total game changer. I'll absolutely help pose you and give you prompts so you don't feel like you don't know what to do with your hands - Ricky Bobby style - but I'm not going to stop a great interaction to make sure every hair is in place for every shot I take. I did that for too long and only really felt like it fostered people connecting with their outer appearance more than what the photo made them feel in their heart.

You deserve to feel something when you look back on your memories, and while I'll do my job to make you look your best, my main goal is to make you FEEL your best, which means helping you feel like you. Don't worry, it's something I still pay attention to and will make small adjustments along the way, as needed for you.

Discovery is suuuuper important for design work. We'll spend some time really nailing down the vision of your project so be prepared to answer some questions I have.

I'll help guide you so don't worry if you don't have all the answers right at the beginning.

Each project requires a different amount of time to complete. After I present my design solution, we'll do some refining to dial it in together and then I'll send over the final deliverables we agreed on!

I'm always able to do continuing work if your project requires it, so don't hesitate to ask up front.

Buckle up sally, we're goin' for a ride!

Oooh baby! So this is where we spend a lot of time stretching our creative muscles together. The discovery process for design work is incredibly important for me to be able to really hit the nail on the head and make you totally gush over the end result! I see design projects as collaborative ones between myself and my clients and I want to make the work feels like it's undeniably, 100% you.

When we connect for our initial meet up (zoom or in person), I'll help you through some worksheets that'll guide you through the millions of ideas you have floating around into a funneled, more tangible concept. This part also assures that I'm on the same page and grasp every aspect of your wishlist and vision before we start.

I'll use this info as the basis for the project, sprinkle in my style, and give you artistic direction on how to effectively create something awesome. Remember, this is a collaborative effort, and getting your input along the way is how we stick the landing and get a perfect ten!

There's a collective eye-roll in the design world about just becoming a "hand".
This refers to when a client just wants to use a designer for their knowledge of how the software works rather than allowing the designer do what they were professionally trained to do...design.

Freedom to play and expand on ideas and different directions is absolutely key to a creative. Anytime I've had a client say "I trust you" is in almost direct relation to the times I've produced my best work and had the most fun doing so. It's really a win-win for everyone, and also why our discovery meeting is SOOOOO important. Now, I'm not asking everyone to just say "hey do whatever you want" but one thing I'm not - just a hand.

Creating with my clients and having them be super involved in the formation of something important to them is really key for those "hell yeah, high five" moments. Making sure you love your design, your messaging, your branding, your wedding collateral, your digital art pieces, etc. is the life-blood of what I do and it wouldn't be truly yours if you didn't say "THAT'S SO ME!" when you look at the end result. This is a big one on why I find it's important we click in our first meet up and we can establish a candid, open line of communication. I'm typically creating something deeply personal for you and that means letting me in a bit. And letting me in a bit means we should be friends, yeah?

Some nitty-gritty about how I operate + some mutual expectations for our collab.

Photography and design go hand in hand and the best part about having someone at your disposal that knows both, is you get a focused vision and aesthetic to take advantage of in order to create a well-rounded, clear experience for your tribe.

For my soon-to-be-newly-weds, this is a great spot to grab a new third wheel for wedding photos who can also design all of your invitations, save the dates, menus, table signage, seating charts, thank you cards, and literally anything else you need. I offer a lot of great gifts for after the party is over too. Prints, albums, digital portraits of your favorite moments, beautiful typographic versions of your vows to each other, and for real, anything else we can dream up together. Have that wedding cake and eat it too, my friends.

Another example is for my business owners (restaurants, jewelry designers, athletes, etc.) who need branding and photos that complement that brand's style! These elements are great to use hand in hand on websites, social media, print collateral, and product packaging. 

The options are endless and I'd love to be part of creating something epic for you and those you want to reach. Let's do this!

Don't restrict yourself. Mix things up!

that's it!
