Frequently Asked Questions

For weddings I average about 600-800 images, for Portrait sessions I average about 35-75 Images. Curate the best images that tells your unique story. This way you are not overwhelmed with images.
What is the sequence like Booking with you?
First you fill out the contact form – I will then send you a full pricing guide based on what you inquired – I then send a detailed questionnaire to learn about you and help build your perfect session – we select a date – full payment is due to reserve that date.
Do you Offer Payment PLans?
Yes! We discuss this on booking, all payments must be completed before your session.
What is your turn around time after a session?
For Weddings you usually receive your images no later than your 3 month anniversary – for portraits usually 2-3 weeks.
I am on the fence about a maternity session...
I will say that every single mom I've documented, and even met, regretted not dong a maternity session. If you are on the fence, bundling Maternity with a Newborn Session helps save. These are actually my favorite sessions and helps you get to document your love for your little one before you lay eyes on your newest addition to the family.
I am on the fence about an in home session...
I have been doing in home portrait sessions for over 5 years, and I have never come across a home I could not photograph in. You don't need to have a Pinterest Perfect home for these type of sessions. I will move things around to find the best light, and help declutter anything that might be distracting in the photographs.
Do you edit the photos?
Yes I do! I do not just apply filters to images, I carefully go in and edit to be sure each photo is the best as possible. I will edit out things like acne, soften lines, brighten your eyes, however I do not do "plastic surgery" work by making you skinnier to editing your face so much that it no longer looks like you. Instead I focus on posing you in the most flattering light possible. You'll LOVE your images.
What will I receive? and how?
You will receive a digital online gallery that is password protected of all your hand selected images. From that online gallery you can download and print your photos. You have the printing rights so you may print your images where you please or directly from the site to ensure professional printing quality.
do you charge travel fees to New Orleans?
I frequent New Orleans A LOT – I have friends and family that live there, so I do not charge extra fees to travel to New Orleans – however you may get invoiced parking and/or uber charges.
I don't see my idea on your collections...
Selected are my most frequent collections. If you love my work and wanting a session I am not offering, or another creative idea, please don't hesitate to contact me! I'm an artist first and foremost, and love expanding my portfolio and creative outlets.
do you offer services like prints and albums?
Yes! You may order that all directly from the online gallery – however if you are wanting something unique and custom, I have a beautifully curated list of vendors to suit your needs.
