Let's Work Together
Get in Touch
I would love to discuss your photography project! I will email you back confirming a time for a quick phone chat to learn more about your needs.
Thanks so much!
What types of photography sessions do you offer?
I currently offer professional headshots, personal branding, contemporary glamour, maternity, elegant boudoir, studio family sessions, and senior portraits.
Where are you located?
My photography studio is in my home in Weddington, NC. I am 5 minutes from the Waverly shopping center, and the Providence Rd. exit of I-485. My address will be shared in your confirmation email, when you book a session.
How do I book a session?
To book a session, I require a brief phone consultation or email exchange to determine what you need and how you would like to be photographed. This insures that I can deliver the type of images you need. Once we've agreed on a time and day, I send you a booking link. I use an online scheduling system. When you book, you will choose your appointment time and enter some basic information. You will be asked for full payment up front, using Square.
What is your pricing for a session?
Each type of session has a different starting price and package options. We will discuss the options in your consultation.
Do I get the digital images?
Every print that is purchased includes the corresponding digital image, perfect for sharing on social media. *Seniors, Headshots and branding sessions only include digital files. Prints, albums, and wall art can be purchased for any session a la carte.
Can I bring a friend to my session?
I am happy for you to bring a supportive and encouraging friend along for your session. It never hurts to have a cheerleader. Just be sure your friend will agree to be positive and not disruptive to our session. They may even be asked to lend a hand and take a behind the scenes video or pic!
What is your retouching philosophy?
I want you to love your images and love what you see, but I want you to still look like YOU. I offer professional level editing and retouching. That includes, but is not limited to, removing blemishes, skin smoothing, light body slimming, teeth whitening, among many other things. Please let me know if there are specific things that you'd like me to focus on. Extensive edits may incur a fee.
Will you share my images online?
I believe strongly in discretion. While it definitely helps my business to be able to showcase what I create, I understand that certain genres ( like boudoir) require permission to share.
What is a proof gallery?
After our session, you will choose your final collection from a proof gallery. The proof gallery consists of the best images from your shoot. They are unedited and are not completed. Once you choose your favorites, I will edit and retouch your images before I deliver your final digital gallery or order your prints and products. Unedited proofs are not available for download.
How do I choose my final collection?
There are 2 options for viewing your proof gallery and choosing your final collection. The first is called an In Person Reveal. We sit down together and look through your proofs on a big screen. We can discuss specific edits, retouching, crops, and look at product samples together. This type of reveal is great for glamour boudoir and senior sessions.
I also offer Zoom reveals. I can send over your proofs through a shared screen and we can look through them together and decide on your favorites. For headshots, I send over a digital proof gallery or offer same day reveals immediately after your session. Any additional products and images must be paid in full before delivery.
Do you deliver proofs or RAW (unedited) images?
I never release proofs or RAW images to clients. RAW images are incomplete work, are not formatted, and are therefore unusable files. Only purchased images are edited and released for download to clients.
What is your cancellation policy?
No showing for your session forfeits your session fee. Session appointments may be cancelled or rescheduled without penalty if done 48 hours prior to your appointment. You will receive a reminder email 72 hours before your session.
What DON'T you photograph?
I do NOT photograph pornographic or erotic art, couples boudoir, or male boudoir. I don't offer newborn photography, documentary style photography, or events like birthday parties or wedding photography. If you have a request and you aren't sure if I offer it, please email me at email@example.com.
