Your Session

We begin with a phone consultation so I can get to know you and determine your portrait goals. During our conversation we will secure a date on the calendar. A $100 non-refundable retainer fee is required to reserve all session dates.


Session Day

By this time, you have planned out your outfits and determined locations. It's time to have fun! I encouraged you to bring family and friends to your session. I will guide you through posing. All you have to do is relax and enjoy the experience!


Your Images

Following your session, I will send you a link to view all of the photos. You will make your selection by creating a favorites list from the gallery. Once I receive your list, I will have your fully edited gallery ready for you in one week.

Your Gallery

Is Ready!

I will notify you when your gallery is ready to view and your portraits are ready to download. Prints and products will be delivered to your door.

Frequently Asked Questions

When will my portraits be ready?

Your fully edited gallery will be ready approximately seven days after the day of your shoot. Prints and products will arrive two weeks after the order date.

Where will my portraits be taken?

Generally we will remain in the greater Westfield area however traveling is also an option. We will discuss location options during the planning phase.

Do you remove braces?

No, it's nearly impossible to remove braces and still retain a natural look.

Can I bring props?

Yes! Bringing things that reflect your personality are a great way to add interest to your portraits. During your planning appointment we can brainstorm this together.

Can I bring someone with me to my senior sessions?

Yes please do! Friends and parents are welcome to join us, especially if they are great at making you smile :) All guests are encouraged to join in and help make your experience the best it can be.

Should I get a spray tan?

I generally discourage clients from getting a spray tan before their session. Unfortunately, they tend to photograph extremely orange and are very difficult to work with during the editing process. The proper use of natural light when shooting creates bright and even skin tones in portraits

Do you remove acne?

Light skin softening is applied to all of my portraits which will reduce the appearance of acne and help to even out skin tone.
