ARE YOU READY?
Your Portrait session starts long before I lift my camera. Before we even set a date, we'll have a FaceTime consultation to talk face to face about your shoot. I love learning about you and listening to what kind of portraits you dream of having taken. Let me know your likes and dislikes, your preferred styles, colors and other essential details so I can craft the perfect shoot for you.
When you’re happy with everything, and I have the finer details, we’re ready to book.
SO WHAT IS CONTEMPORARY PORTRAITURE?
These are magazine style photoshoots that celebrate you and your unique beauty. My background is in fashion and these Vanity Fair style sessions bring the celebrity photoshoot experience to girls of all ages who want to create precious, beautiful images for themselves and their families. Take a look at some of these gorgeous contemporary style makeover portraits to get an idea of how I can capture you at your own beautiful shoot!
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING MY COUTURE PHOTO SHOOT?
Your photoshoot is a pamper session, a girl's day out and a celebration of you! You will sip champagne throughout the day and enjoy the services of a professional hair and makeup artist. Expect to laugh, have fun and create images you'll treasure the rest of your life!
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Just like every woman is unique, so is each photo session. Together we will design a shoot concept that both excites and flatters you, then I will let you know what to bring to the shoot.
I'M SELF-CONSCIOUS ABOUT MY BODY, SHOULD I STILL BOOK A SHOOT?
As women we're our own worst critics, but you are beautiful right now, just as you are. If you're nervous, don't be! I will strategically pose and light you in ways that will be flattering to you. To help you visualize the process, here are some of my BEFORE AND AFTER transformation images.
WHAT ABOUT SENIOR PORTRAITS?
I love working with seniors! Together we'll create a session that blends portraiture and fashion to give your senior a model experience she'll never forget. Whatever style you're looking for, we can plan something stunning both you and she will love!
WHAT ABOUT ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS?
Congratulations! I would absolutely love to be the one capturing this special time for you. An engagement session is all about celebrating your love for each other. The wedding will be a fast-paced, amazing time with your family and friends, but this shoot is a slow savoring of your love and romance and excitement for the future. Whatever your dream session looks like, we can make happen. Want to stroll the city in chic clothes? Or would you rather take classic black and white portraits in a quiet studio? It's your wedding, your engagement, your dream photoshoot. Contact me now so I can get your date on the calendar!
HOW DO I BOOK MY PORTRAIT SESSION?

* Once you receive digital images that you purchase, please know there is a no exchange and no refund policy.
WILL YOU PHOTOSHOP OR RETOUCH MY IMAGES? WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
Yes, all of your images will be artistically edited and retouched! In fact I'll spend 10-15 hours retouching the images after your session to make sure every hair is in place, all makeup is even and smooth, and that every glint of light on your skin sparkles just the way it should.
Some photographers will offer to clean blemishes off of skin, but that is not the same as retouch work. Retouching digital art used by high end photographers to edit an image, making it look like something you'd see in a magazine (Please note: the purpose of retouching is to subtley enhance an image, not drastically alter it). It is a time intensive skill most photographers do not offer, but I believe in investing fully in every image I present to you. I want you to love your images!
IS IT TRUE YOU ONLY BOOK A SET NUMBER OF PORTRAIT SESSIONS PER YEAR?
Yes. Limited availability each month means my time is valuable. Please book important dates soon to ensure your booking is confirmed. I look forward to hearing from you!
