The FAQ

How do we book you?

The only way to book with me is to first schedule a discovery call. It is of the upmost importance to me to make sure that we are a perfect fit before we schedule anything together! If for any reason I feel that we are not a match, I would be happy to refer you to a different photographer that I feel would be better able to meet your needs.

Click on the "Book" tab in the website menu to schedule your discovery call!

How much do you charge?

This is a very difficult question for me to answer without any context as far as what type of session you're looking to book, how many people will be participating in the session, how many images you want, what you plan to do with the images, etc. For this reason, I need to speak with you personally to give you a better idea of how much you can expect to pay. On average, my clients pay anywhere from $3500-$6000.

You can book a free discovery call with me to go over all of these details! The call will only take about 15-20 minutes of your time and I would be happy to answer your pricing questions once I have more information about your photography wants and needs. Click on the "Book" tab to schedule a discovery call!

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes, on a case-by-case basis. Typically, I require a non-refundable retainer fee of 50% of your total session fee to lock in your date and time. After that, the remainder of your balance is due in full no later than 48 hours before your session date and time.

You can split up the remainder into as many payments as you'd like so long as it is paid in full 48 hours before your session.

I also offer 3 or 6 month payment plans for your product purchase. However, I will not place your order with my printing lab until I am paid in full

Do you offer discounts if I book multiple sessions at once?

Yes! Absolutely! I have a couple bundles that I offer, which you can view on the homepage, or we can work together to create a custom session bundle that is perfectly tailored to your needs.

The bundle discount only applies if you book all sessions at the same time and pay the retainer fee in full up front for all sessions included in the bundle.

Do you Travel?

Yes! I am only available for hire in the state of Colorado, but I am willing to meet you at any destination you choose. Please be advised that any session with a location further than a 30-mile radius from zip code 80219 will be charged an additional $1.50 per mile in both directions. For example, if your location is 50 miles from zip code 80219, you would be charged a $60 travel fee (20 additional miles each way).

Whats your turn around time?

I do my best to have your full proofing gallery ready to view within one week of your session. Once you have selected which photos you want me to send to you for download, I will have those ready for you in no more than 2 weeks. Turnaround time for prints can take upwards of 6 weeks so be sure to plan accordingly.

Do you offer professional hair and make-up?

Yes! Professional hair and make-up is included in the session fee for Mom only with the exception of birth sessions. Not only that, but my stylists are happy to come to your home to get you ready for your session!

Please make sure that your hair is clean and free of product and that your face is washed and fresh for the stylist the day of your shoot. Plan for up to 2 hours for hair and make-up before you plan to leave your house.

If you have additional participants who would also like hair and make-up, I can accommodate that as well for an additional fee.

What should we wear?

After you book with me, I will come to your home for a formal consultation. Part of this consultation includes wardrobe planning. We can go through yours and your family's closets and coordinate everyone's outfits for your shoot.

If your wardrobe is lacking or if new clothing needs to be purchased, just send me the receipt and I will happily give you a product credit to match whatever you spent on wardrobe (up to $250)!

I am also constantly adding to a client wardrobe that you are welcome to use!

Do you retouch photos?

I do very basic retouching such as removal of bruises or small blemishes. However, if you would like more advanced retouching such as scar or tattoo removal, changes to your body shape or size, etc. I can do that as well for an additional charge.

How far out do you book?

I book out up to 12 months in advance. I always recommend booking with me as soon as you find out you are pregnant so that you can budget accordingly for everything you want included.

Can you help us with planning?

Absolutely! It's what I do best! I am here for you every step of the way and I'd love to answer any questions you have about any aspect of your session!

I offer professional hair and make-up services, wardrobe consultation, location recommendation, time of day planning, etc. I will also coordinate everything with your hair and make-up artist so you don't have to!

How many photos do we get?

This varies depending on the number of products or which product package that you purchase. My most basic product package includes 8 framed prints in various sizes along with the digital downloads for those 8 images.

You're always welcome to add product and digitals to any print package for an additional price per print/image

How do we get our photos?

After your session, we will meet in person within a week to review your gallery. At this appointment you will make your final decision about which products or package you wish to purchase and any additional a la carte items you'd like to add.

Once your order is paid in full, I will send you the digital downloads and send your print order to my photo lab for fulfillment. I will then personally hand deliver your order to your home so that we can look over them together and make sure everything is to your satisfaction!

How long have you been doing this?

I have been playing with photography all my life, but started photography professionally in November of 2022!
