WHAT IS CONTEMPORARY PORTRAITURE?
These Vanity Fair styled portraits are beautiful and vibrant and, celebrating you and your unique beauty. My background is in the fashion industry and my shoots bring the model experience to women of all ages who want to create precious, stunning 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. Any woman – young and old, all shapes and sizes – can do this.
To help you visualize the process, here are some of my BEFORE AND AFTER images.
WHAT ABOUT SENIOR PORTRAITS?
I work with seniors frequently, capturing images that can be run in a yearbook, images mom and dad will love and also creating fashion portraits that bring the model experience to you or your daughter. Whatever style you're looking for, we can plan something stunning for you!
HOW DO I BOOK MY PORTRAIT SESSION?
I’d love to talk about ideas and availability!
To book your session a non-refundable retainer will reserve your date.
I accept a limited number of commissions, so most clients inquire well in advance to reserve their desired date.

* 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 15-20 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 is a digital art form used by high end photographers to enhance an image and make it look like something you'd see in a magazine or advertisement (Please note: the purpose of retouching is to ENHANCE an image, not change 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, I only accept a certain number of sessions per year. Please contact me for availability.
WHAT ABOUT BOOKING A FASHION SHOOT?
Please contact me with any questions you have about booking an editorial shoot or portfolio test shoots. Agency rates available upon request.
*LATE AND NO SHOW POLICY:
My time is valuable, and so is yours. If you’re late for an appointment, you lose that time. If you don’t show, you’ll still be charged in full. In turn, I promise to honor our appointments and be on time as well. This affects how many other clients I can take on.
